Midweek fixtures galore greet us in the Premier League as get stuck into Match Week 17.
All the best bets for every game have landed.
Norwich vs. Aston Villa
December 15th 6:45am
An ever-improving Aston Villa makes its way to Carrow Road for a clash against Norwich City.
Steven Gerrard has continued to get the best out of this Villa squad and might very well have pinched a draw against Liverpool over the weekend if not for some bad luck.
Norwich, meanwhile, has continued to languish at the bottom of the Premier League table as it stares relegation in the face.
Two months ago, the Canaries would be a live chance against VIlla, but under Gerrard, Villa looks a completely changed team.
Prediction: Norwich 0 Aston Villa 2
Suggested Bet: Aston Villa head to head at $2.25
manchester city vs. leeds
december 15th 7:00am
It could very well be lambs to the slaughter when Leeds United travels to the Etihad for a clash against league leader Manchester City.
The Citizens have charged up the Premier League table with a six-game winning streak and they are showing no signs of slowing down.
Leeds has been somewhat disappointing this season and, while it showed some sort of improvement against Chelsea, it would need a minor miracle to get a result against this billion-dollar City squad.
Prediction: Manchester City 3 Leeds United 0
Suggested Bet: P. Foden first goal scorer at $4.50
brighton & hove albion vs. wolverhampton
december 16th 6:30am
Brighton & Hove Albion welcomes Wolverhampton to the American Express Community Stadium for a midweek tussle.
After looking like European football next season might be a distinct possibility, Brighton has plummeted down the league table having not won a league game in ten outings.
This game against Wolverhampton will not be easy with the Wolves pushing Manchester City all the way last weekend only to succumb to a 1-0 loss.
Brighton does get the home-ground advantage, but it might not be enough to keep the Wolves from getting a result here.
Draw looks the value play.
Prediction: Brighton 1 Wolverhampton 1
Suggested Bet: Draw at $3
burnley vs. watford
december 16th 6:30am
Two struggling teams meet when Burnley and Watford go head to head at Turf Moor.
Watford comes into this clash having lost four games in a row since that famous 4-1 thrashing of Manchester United last month, while Burnley itself in a winless run having failed to find the three points in each of its last five games.
Burnley do have the capability of locking teams out and defending resolutely, so that is a big feather in the cap for this clash against a Watford team which has looked very vulnerable at the back.
The Clarets should be able to get it done on their home deck.
Prediction: Burnley 1 Waford 0
Suggested Bet: Burnley head to head at $2.10
crystal palace vs. southampton
december 16th 6:30am
Fresh off a big victory against Everton last weekend, Crystal Palace looks to make it consecutive wins when it faces Southampton at Selhurst Park.
Patrick Viera’s men took a big step to rectifying a form slump with a 3-1 win over Everton, while Southampton continued its struggled after being pummelled 3-0 by Arsenal.
Palace will likely dominate possession in this game and should able to to turn their dominance into goals against a Southampton back four that has been under the pump in December.
Prediction: Crystal Palace 2 Southampton 0
Suggested Bet: Crystal Palace head to head at $2.10
arsenal vs. west ham
december 16th 7:00am
It’s a big London Derby when the Emirates lights it up for a big duel between Arsenal and West Ham.
In a game that will add another chapter to the race for the top four, Arsenal is favoured to the get the job done as the $2.10 favourite, but West Ham has proven itself such a tough team to defeat when it travels on the road to face these big clubs.
The Gunners showed their weak under belly in the start of December after dropping games to Manchester United and Everton, but bounced back hard with a 3-0 win over Southampton.
Arsenal has looked fairly strong at home this year, while West Ham is facing bit of a fixture back log which might just see them play with a heavy legs.
Prediction: Arsenal 2 West Ham 0
Suggested Bets: Arsenal head to head at $2.10
leicester vs. tottenham
december 17th 6:30amam
Leicester heads into its game against Tottenham as the very intriguing $2 favourite.
The Foxes have really found winning consistency hard to come by this season, but might just have turned the corner after smacking Newcastle off the park with a 4-0 win.
Tottenham, however, represents a completely different challenge with Brendan Rodgers having to negate the genius mind of Antonio Conte.
Spurs have continued their trek towards the top four and have light work of Brentford and Norwich in their two most recent games.
The market always has to be respected, but Leicester is just not trustworthy to have a wager on at this point in time.
Prediction: Tottenham 1 Leicester 0
Suggested Bet: Tottenham head to head at $3.40
chelsea vs. everton
december 17th 6:45am
After surviving Leeds United at the weekend, Chelsea will look to stay in the title race when they take on Everton in yet another home fixture.
The Blues are two points behind league leaders Man City, meaning that this has to go down as yet another must-win game for Thomas Tuchel’s troops.
Romelu Lukaku is pushing for a start, while Kante, Kovacic, Chilwell, and Chalobah all remain on the sidelines.
If Chelsea is serious about its title hopes, a win against an Everton team coming off a poor 3-1 loss Crystal Palace just has to be the bare minimum.
Prediction: Chelsea 2 Everton 0
Suggested Bet: Chelsea to win to nil at $1.60
liverpool vs. newcastle
december 17th 7:00am
The near unstoppable force of Liverpool opens the doors to Anfield when it faces off against Newcastle.
The Reds faced a potent Aston Villa side led by their club legend, Steven Gerrard, and dominated them throughout despite only grinding out a 1-0 win thanks a Mo Salah pentalty.
They have the look of title challengers alongside Manchester City and we could very well be in a for a two-horse race again.
Doubt even the tactical nous of Eddie Howe can stop this rampant Liverpool squad.
Prediction: Liverpool 4 Newcastle 1
Suggested Bet: Highest scoring half = First half at $3
