brighton & hove albion vs. crystal palace

January 15th 7:00am

The Amex will host the latest edition of the M23 derby on Friday night, as Brighton & Hove Albion welcome Crystal Palace in the Premier League, with both sides enjoying successful seasons to date.

Brighton are currently ninth in the table, boasting 27 points from their opening 19 matches, while Palace sit 12th with 23 points to show from their first 20 games of the 2021-22 campaign.

It has been a topsy turvy type of season for both teams, but Brighton hold the home advantage here. 

They look the value at the head to head. 

Prediction: Brighton 2 Crystal Palace 1

Suggested Bet: Brighton head to head at $2.05

manchester city vs. chelsea

january 15th 11:30pm

In a game that will shape the charge towards the Premier League title, the two biggest and most powerful teams in England at the moment do battle when Manchester City hosts Chelsea at The Etihad.

City has surged to what looks like unassailable lead at the top of the table if Chelsea cannot get the job done here. 

There have been off-field issues plaguing Chelsea in recent weeks which have effected results. 

Romelu Lukaku’s strained relationship with Thomas Tuchel has been well documented.

City to inflict more pain on Chelsea. 

Prediction: Manchester City 3 Chelsea 0

Suggested Bet: Manchester City head to head at $1.65

newcastle vs. watford

january 16th 2:00am

Newcastle and Watford are both struggling at the wrong end of the table and this weekend’s clash in the Premier League feels very much like a relegation 6-pointer.

If either side can claim all three points on Saturday then it could provide the basis from which one of these sides could go on a run and distance themselves from the relegation zone. 

Eddie Howe has definitely improve the Magpies since being appointed manager, but wins have still been hard to come by. 

Could be set for a draw here. 

Hard to lean in one corner given how poorly both teams are travelling.

Prediction: Newcastle 1 Watford 

Suggested Bet: Draw at $3.5

wolverhampton vs. southampton

january 16th 2:00am

Two teams in-form go head-to-head in the Premier League this weekend as when Wolverhampton plays host to Southampton at the Molineux.

The Wolves have played one game fewer than their guests yet sit four points clear of the Saints in 8th place and are the rightful favourites in this clash.

But Southampton has the motivation of knowing a win could move it into the top half of the table. 

Another really tough game to split, but Wolverhampton gets the nod at home. 

Prediction: Wolverhampton 1 Southampton 0

Suggested Bet: Wolverhampton head to head at $2.25

norwich vs. everton

january 16th 2:00am

Everton is on the road to face minnows Norwich at Carrow Road this weekend.

The calls to sack Toffees manager Rafa Benetiz have been made abundantly by the fans, but he might get another lifeline given the opponent his squad faces. 

Norwich has been horrific for most of the season and has not scored a goal in the league since September, but expect that to change in this game against an equally uninspiring Everton team. 

While the Canaries will likely break their scoring drought, this should be a win for Everton as they look to put aside what has been a troublesome season. 

Prediction: Norwich 1 Everton 2

Suggested Bet: Everton head to head at $2

burnley vs. leicester city

january 16th 2:00am

An injury-plagued and depleted Leicester make the trek over to Turf Moor for a clash against Burnley this weekend. 

Leicester still has a raft of absentee concerns, with potentially 16 players unavailable for Brendan Rodgers. 

Kelechi Iheanacho, Wilfred Ndidi, Daniel Amartey, and Nampalys Mendy will all miss due to international duty, so the door opens up for Burnley to pinch a result here. 

The problem for Burnley, however, is a lack of forward stocks. 

Chris Wood is set for a move to Newcastle so won’t play here and with Ashley Barnes injured, Matej Vydra recovering from a bout of COIVD-19, and Maxwel Cornet on international duty. 

Going for a scoreless draw. 

Prediction: Burnley 0 Leicester 0

Suggested Bet: Draw at $3.30

aston villa vs. manchester united

january 16th 4:30am

Aston Villa and Manchester United meet each other for the second time this week when they lock horns at Villa Park in the Premier League.

Both teams met at Old Trafford for an FA Cup Third Round tie on Tuesday in what ended up being a 1-0 victory to Manchester United. 

Villa definitely annoyed the Red Devils in that game and would have gained some confidence given how tight of a contest it was. 

The Villa fans will definitely be in full voice for this game and it might be the factor that spurs the home team on. 

Steven Gerrard would love to get back one on his old foes.

Prediction: Aston Villa 2 Manchester United 1

Suggested Bet: Aston Villa head to head at $2.95

liverpool vs. brentford

january 17th 1:00am

The betting suggests this will be a walk in the park for Liverpool when it faces Brentford at Anfield.

But it could very well be a danger game given the absence of Sadio Mane and Mohammed Salah due to the ongoing AFCON. 

Salah has been unstoppable this season, scoring 16 goals in the league so far, and his Senegalese counterpart’s return to form has only added to his excellent performance, so Brentford will be breathing a sigh of relief. 

While it is tough to tip against the Reds at home, with so much offensive talent missing, we expect this game to go under 2.5 goals. 

Prediction: Liverpool 1 Brentford 0

Suggested Bet: Total goals scored under 2.5 at $2.18

west ham vs. leeds united

january 17th 1:00am

Leeds United return to London Stadium after being trounced out of the FA Cup by West Ham earlier this week.

The 2-0 loss only heightened the pressure on Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa and extended Leeds’ losing run against the Hammers to four games. 

West Ham is well poised to extend that run given how well it is going in the Premier League and it will know a win will ensure it will hold on to that prized fourth spot. 

Prediction: West Ham 4 Leeds United 2

Suggested Bet: West Ham head to head at $1.62

tottenham vs. arsenal

january 17th 1:00am

No better way to end Premier League Match Week 22 with a North London Derby between Arsenal and Tottenham.

There will be no love lost between these fierce rivals and it is the first time new Spurs Antonio Conte will experience this fixture. 

Tottenham will look to jump into the top four this weekend at the cost of fierce North London rivals Arsenal.

With a few games in hand as well, the derby presents a great opportunity for Spurs to build up momentum for the fixtures ahead. 

But Arsenal will have something to say about that as Mikel Arteta finally begins to bear fruit with managerial philosophy. 

Stopping Harry Kane is going to be pivotal for the Gunners given his goal-scoring record against them. 

Prediction: Tottenham 1 Arsenal 1

Suggested Bet: Draw at $3.3
