Soccer Picks - English Premier League

The English Premier League returns this weekend following the International break and we’re looking at the biggest matches happening plus providing you with our thoughts on where the best betting value lies at the sportsbooks.

The first game we’re looking at is the Merseyside Derby on Sunday afternoon as Everton host city rivals Liverpool at Goodison Park. This match is always a highly charged and fiery encounter, but with the off field problems that have plagued Liverpool and the poor starts that both sides have had on the field, we expect there to be more bite than usual in this one. Everton will be the more confident of the sides as they are playing at home and they picked up their first win of the season last time they played, while Liverpool were beaten at home by newly promoted Blackpool. We can’t see a Liverpool win in this game, but the game could end in either a draw or an Everton win, so we’re leaning towards over 2.5 goals in this fixture at odds of 2.11.

Another big match of the weekend happens the evening before the Everton v Liverpool game and it sees Aston Villa host title holders Chelsea at Villa Park. Current form says that this game should be easy for Chelsea, especially as they beat Villa 7-1 near the end of last season and they have won six of their seven league matches this season. However, Chelsea have won only one of the last ten matches between them and Aston Villa played at Villa Park, so we don’t expect this to be one way traffic. This is another game we’re leaning towards the over market and we’re putting our money on over 2.5 goals at 1.78.

The final game we’re looking at sees title chasing Manchester United host newly promoted West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford. United are having lots of problems on the road this season and are yet to taste victory on the road, and their star striker Wayne Rooney is going through a goal drought. Despite this they have won all of their games at home and they have scored three goals in each game! West Brom will feel confident of getting something from the game due to the problems that United are having, especially as they won their last away game – away at Arsenal! However, West Brom have now beaten Manchester United since 1984 and we feel that things will stay this way for another match at least and we’re putting out money on a home win at 1.15.

Good luck and enjoy the games!

When gambling or playing sports betting games online it's important to know about the number, and how you can beat it, this is one of the most challenging facets that most bettors want to learn. Bettors believe that by beating the number they can boost their win percentage and in essence giving them a higher chance of winning. If you have close to zero knowledge about the game, the team or the players it can be quite difficult to beat the betting number. Many experts say that no matter what game you play you will find the numbers are always in favor of the house. This is true as well in casino style gambling and slot machines. The main difference lies in the fact that betting numbers are slightly higher than those at a casino.
