Crystal Palace vs. Tottenham
Under 2.5 goals at 1.84 (bet365)
Six of the last eight meetings between the two at Selhurst Park, including the last five straight, went under 2.5 goals. All three of Tottenham’s fixtures this season resulted in a 1-0 scoreline while Crystal Palace were held goalless in two of their three fixtures.

West Ham +0.5 at 1.40 (bet365)
West Ham in the head-to-head at 2.48 (Unibet)
West Ham have gone 6-2-1 as the away favourite over the last 12 months while Southampton have gone 2-3-7 as the home underdog. West Ham bring 4-2-0 form into this clash, spanning this season and the last, while Southampton limp in with 0-2-3 form. West Ham have gone 6-1-0 in their last seven meetings with Southampton.
Watford vs. Wolves
Under 2.5 goals at 1.67 (bet365, Unibet)
Watford have been kept goalless in two of their three games this season while all three of Wolverhampton’s fixtures resulted in a 1-0 defeat. Spanning this season and the last, Wolves scored just one goal in six games.
Chelsea vs. Aston Villa
Chelsea 2-1 Aston Villa correct score at 10.00 (bet365)
Five of the last 11 fixtures between the two were won 2-1 by Chelsea. Of Aston Villa’s 8 away defeats over the last 12 months, 7 were by one goal and they scored a goal in 6 of those 8 defeats.
Everton vs. Burnley
Everton in the head-to-head at 1.75 (Sportsbet)
Everton have made a 2-1-0 start to the season and both of their wins came by 2-goal margins. With fans back in the stadium I expect the Toffees will overcome their home-game blues of last year. Burnley have gone 2-0-4 at Goodison Park since promotion and spanning this season and the last they limp into this fixture in 0-1-5 form.
