Burnley clash with Everton on Saturday lunchtime, while Liverpool meet Newcastle in the later televised clash
Burnley 12:30 Everton
We’re not expecting a classic at Turf Moor although Burnley won 1-0 at Goodison earlier this season and look capable of grinding out something similar against an Everton side who have been disjointed since the campaign began.
SCORE PREDICTION: Burnley 1 Everton 0
BEST BET: Under 1.5 Goals @ 13/8 with bet365
Leicester City 15:00 AFC Bournemouth
The Cherries are shipping goals and we’re expecting Leicester to outscore them, with Riyad Mahrez somewhere near his best again and Jamie Vardy ready to expose a porous defence that conceded four times at Huddersfield.
SCORE PREDICTION: Leicester 2 Bournemouth 1
BEST BET: Leicester to win @ 5/6 with William Hill
Southampton 15:00 Stoke City
We’re happy to get with the draw at decent odds considering that Southampton shouldn’t be odds-on and Paul Lambert has his players displaying plenty of fight despite a dearth of quality in the ranks.
SCORE PREDICTION: Southampton 1 Stoke City 1
BEST BET: Draw @ 11/4 with bet365
Swansea City 15:00 West Ham United
The Swans came crashing down to earth with a bump after losing at Brighton although they have been rock solid at the Liberty recently and can do a number on a Hammers team for whom Marko Arnautovic seems to be the principle threat.
SCORE PREDICTION: Swansea 1 West Ham 0
BEST BET: Swansea to win @ 6/4 with bet365
Tottenham Hotspur 15:00 Huddersfield Town
Spurs are pretty mustard on home soil and will want a nice clean win before considering the prospect of a tougher test when Juventus head to Wembley. Most of their first team had a rest when thrashing Rochdale in the FA Cup.
SCORE PREDICTION: Tottenham 2 Huddersfield 0
BEST BET: Tottenham win to nil @ 8/11 with bet365
Watford 15:00 West Bromwich Albion
Watford are a knocking bet at odds-against considering that Albion look a spent force and were beaten at home to Huddersfield last weekend. Javi Gracia has done particularly well at Vicarage Road since taking over.
SCORE PREDICTION: Watford 2 WBA 0
BEST BET: Watford to win @ 11/10 with Ladbrokes
Liverpool 17:30 Newcastle United
It’s a long shot but Newcastle have enough about them to stop Liverpool in their tracks, especially when you consider that the Reds have failed to win six times at Anfield this season. Rafa could enjoy his return!
SCORE PREDICTION: Liverpool 1 Newcastle 1
BEST BET: Draw @ 6/1 with bet365
