Premier League Predictions: EPL Odds, Best Bets & Picks
Premier league betting returns this weekend following a postponement of games over Gameweek 7 due to the death of the Queen. It means some teams have now had two weeks to rest up in preparation for these games – and the Premier League odds have adjusted accordingly. While the likes of Manchester City, Tottenham and Manchester United have had to play midweek European games, others have their feet up.
A lack of policing availability means Manchester United vs. Leeds and Chelsea vs. Liverpool are postponed this weekend, while Brighton vs Crystal Palace is also off due to a train strike. And so, there are only seven games for soccer betting fans to enjoy this weekend.

Best Premier League Betting Tips Gameweek 8
This is a gameweek where the heavy focus is on the bottom of the table. The EPL relegation odds on betting sites keep on changing, and the likes of West Ham, Leicester and Everton can’t get themselves out of the mire just yet. Indeed, Everton and Leicester remain winless, while Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest aren’t sitting comfortably either.
This could be a big weekend of change at the bottom, and there’ll be plenty of attention focused on Everton vs. West Ham on Sunday. Whichever manager loses that could find themselves under a lot of pressure before the international break. Here are three bets to consider this weekend…
Fulham to beat Nottingham Forest
There are big games and then there are games that could define your season. Fulham and Nottingham Forest both came up this summer but have had drastically differing starts to their campaigns. Whereas Fulham have added strength to a side they believe capable of staying up, Forest have overhauled the squad with 21 new players. The worry is that these guys won’t have enough time to gel, and that Forest will be cut adrift by the time they do.
Right now it’s not worked. Forest are second-bottom with one win from six, while Fulham are in mid-table. The Cottagers will expect to win this and compound Forest’s early-season misery.

Tottenham to beat Leicester
Odds: -215 at DraftKings
This could be the final game of Brendan Rodgers’ reign at Leicester. The FA Cup winner has failed to get enough out of a squad that has dwindled in quality over the past two years, and change is evidently needed. Leicester could use the international break to axe the manager who has overseen a winless start to the season.
And the Foxes are likely to be stuffed by Spurs. Antonio Conte’s side are unbeaten, keeping apace with Manchester City and Arsenal, and are in their groove. This should be a banker on any acca/parlay this weekend.

West Ham vs. Everton, Under 2.5 Goals
Odds: -130 at DraftKings
This is going to be a tense afternoon in Liverpool. Everton are yet to win this season, while West Ham have slipped into the bottom three. It’s early days in this campaign but there is a feeling that both Frank Lampard and David Moyes could be axed over the international break. And if Brendan Rodgers is potentially available, it might be a case of who blinks first.
Everton have at least scrapped their way to four draws this season, but a lack of attacking edge has cost them. The Hammers, too, are struggling going forward. Moyes is happy with his midfield stability of Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek, but that’s come at the cost of goals. There will be few goals scored at Goodison Park this Sunday.
