Saturday Premier League fixtures
Odds To Bet On has already covered Friday’s Premier League clash between Arsenal and Southampton in their preview of games across Europe’s top-five leagues, so the Saturday matches are next.
There are five games in the Premier League to cover (Fulham v Leeds United, Leicester City v Wolverhampton Wanderers, Liverpool v Nottingham Forest, Brentford v Aston Villa and Crystal Palace v Everton), so Odds To Bet On has used Oddschecker to get the best returns.
Fulham v Leeds United
Fulham ended a four-game losing run with victory over Everton, so they come into Saturday’s clash with Leeds in much better shape. But the 10-placed Cottagers are still winless in their last three home games, losing back-to-back, so it’s not a guarantee that they’ll build on the recent win.
Leeds haven’t been convincing of late either. The Whites are six places and 13 points worse off in the table and have lost two of their last three games. Leeds have lost three of their last four away outings too, so they’ll be underdogs to get a result in West London.
Fulham are 7/5 to win with Bet 365, Fulham and Leeds are 23/10 to draw with Sky Bet, and Leeds are 15/8 to win with William Hill.
Leicester City v Wolverhampton Wanderers
Leicester have a must-win game against Wolves but are in terrible form of late. The Foxes are 19th in the table with four straight home defeats and no win in their last nine games.
City lost eight times in that period, so a Wolves side coming off the back of two wins and a draw from their last three may fancy their chances of winning. The Old Gold haven’t been the best on the road, failing to win their last four away games, but one win and two draws from five is still a better return than Leicester’s home form.
Leicester are 6/4 with Coral to win, Leicester and Wolves are 9/4 to draw with Paddy Power, and Wolves are 9/5 to win with Betway.
Liverpool v Nottingham Forest
Liverpool are favourites to beat strugglers Nottingham Forest but are winless in four games themselves.
The Reds, who sat 8th in the table on the weekend, had picked up two points from a possible 12 before their Leeds clash but do have flawless home form to rely on ahead of Saturday’s match – five wins and two draws from last seven games at Anfield. That might make the difference.
Forest are 10 places and 17 points worse off than Liverpool while failing to win their last 10 games in the league. The newly-promoted outfit have lost five on the bounce away from home too, so it’s hard to see them getting a result on Merseyside.
Liverpool are 1/4 to win with SpreadEx, Liverpool and Forest are 6/1 to draw with 10 Bet, and Forest are 14/1 to win with William Hill.
Brentford v Aston Villa
Brentford are in poor form while Villa are flying, so this match could go the way of the visitors.
The hosts are without a win in five games, having lost their last three, so they’re not in great shape overall. Brentford did lost their last home game too, but it’s worth noting that they’ve lost only once in their own backyard in 11 games.
Villa are three places and seven points better off than the Bees while boasting five consecutive wins, so life is good for Unai Emery’s men. They’ve won three and drawn one of their last four away outings, so the Midlands side will fancy their chances.
Brentford are 31/20 to win with Bet UK, Brentford and Villa are 5/2 to draw with SpreadEx, and Villa are 19/10 to win with Bet 10.
Crystal Palace v Everton
Everton are desperate for a win but face a Palace side in great form, so Saturday could be a long afternoon for them. Sean Dyche’s men are out of the relegation zone on goal difference and are without a win in four games, so they’re not in great shape.
Palace are five places and nine points better off in 12th place, coming off the back of three consecutive wins, so they’re fancy their chances at home. The Eagles have lost just one of their last six games at Selhurst Park while Everton have managed only one victory on the road all season.
Palace are 11/10 to win with Unibet, Palace and Everton are 40/17 to draw with 10Bet, and Everton are 31/10 to win with Bet Victor.
