Sunday, May 23rd Matches
- Brighton & Hove / Arsenal
Arsenal is hot. The likely home favorite has won 3-of-4 with a draw. The Gunners beat Brighton & Hove via a 1-0 score in the last head-to-head. The match happened back on Dec. 29. The rematch sets up for a bigger Arsenal win. So if you can get the Gunners at a decent handicap -1 ½, go for it.
Soccer Pick: Arsenal handicap
- Chelsea / Aston Villa
On May 18, Chelsea broke a 2-match losing streak. The Blues had dropped games to Arsenal and Leicester City. The loss to LC happened in the English FA Cup Final. Chelsea gained revenge over Leicester in the May 18 win. Aston Villa has a win, 2 draws, and 2 losses in their last 5. The Blues are a solid play.
Soccer Pick: Chelsea
- Newcastle United / Fulham
Newcastle has lost 2-of-3. But the 2 losses were against top teams Arsenal and Manchester City. On May 14, Newcastle scored 3 goals against Man City in a 4-3 loss. Fulham has dropped 4-of-5. Even though this is on Fulham’s pitch, Newcastle is the play.
Soccer Pick: Newcastle
- West Bromwich / Leeds United
Leeds is on a 3-match winning streak. The home team in this outscored Burnley 4-0 on May 15. On May 18, Leeds beat Southampton 2-0. West Bromwich has 3 losses and 2 draws in their last 4. But although West Brom is up against it on Sunday, the odds should make Leeds an underlay.
Soccer Pick: West Brom
- Tottenham Hotspur / Leicester City
Hotspur versus LC projects as one of the most competitive EPL matches of the season. Last Dec. 20, Tottenham beat Leicester 2-0. LC heads into this match off an English FA Cup victory and a loss to Chelsea. Tottenham beat Wolverhampton in their last. Since the Hotspur figure to offer better odds, we’re going with Tottenham.
Soccer Pick: Tottenham
Premier League Weekly Betting Update
- Crystal Palace / Liverpool
Too little too late for Liverpool. In May, Pool has played like the best team in the Premier League. Manchester City sewed up the league title weeks ago, though. Still, Liverpool beat West Brom on May 16, dominated Man United by 2 goals on May 13, and beat Southampton by 2 on May 8. The Reds’ handicap looks like the best play.
Soccer Pick: Liverpool
- Everton / Manchester City
The Sky Blues are at home. But City won’t go all out in this match. Next Saturday, on May 29, Man City takes on Chelsea for the Champions League title. This is Everton’s Super Bowl. Even though they shouldn’t beat the Sky Blues, Everton is catching the home squad at the perfect time. Roll the dice on the road team.
Soccer Pick: Everton
- Burnley / Sheffield
Leeds dominated Burnley in their last. Sheffield upset Everton. These two have drawn twice in their last 3 head-to-head matches. If you want to play the moneyline, go with the team offering the best odds. If not, do what we’re doing, which is backing the draw.
Soccer Pick: Draw
- Southampton / West Ham United
West Ham has 3 losses, a win, and a draw in their last 5. On May 18, Leeds beat Southampton 2-0. But before the loss, the road squad in this had won 2 straight. Either accept what should be better odds on Southampton, or back the draw.
Soccer Pick: Southampton
- Manchester United / Wolverhampton Wanderers
Will United mail this in? They could. On Wednesday, May 26, Man U takes on Villareal in the Europa League Final. That’s a much more important match than this contest against the Wanderers. Even if Manchester United doesn’t put forth their best foot, though, Wolverhampton could have trouble capitalizing. Still, it’s tough to see United doing more than playing for a draw. We’re going for it.
Soccer Pick: Wolverhampton
