Following the international break it’s EPL Week 12 predictions time – and here are your predictions and guide to betting.
EPL Week 12 Predictions: Everton v Liverpool betting preview
Who could have predicted at the end of last season how these two teams would be doing so well – and that makes this one huge. Particularly for Everton, whose squad is not as deep and they need to get the points at home here against the rampant Reds. Liverpool, with their forward firepower, start slight bookie favourites at 2.50 and the Toffees at 2.90. Probably the more likely result could be a draw, and that’s where the best odds of 3.25 can be had.
EPL Week 12 Predictions: Arsenal v Southampton betting preview
What an interesting test this will be for Mauricio Pochettino’s Saints after they have impressed the pants off everyone so far with an away win at Liverpool and drawing with Manchester United at Old Trafford. This away game will be an even sterner examination against the league leaders though, who are surely not going to get mugged like the others have. Arsenal are overwhelming favourites at 1.66 and very good returns can be made if you back Southampton to leave the Emirates with any points at all.
EPL Week 12 Predictions: Fulham v Swansea betting preview
Anyone’s guess how Fulham will decide to play this week but you’s have to fancy the Swans here, who are the bookmakers’ favourite going into this one. Fulham need to pull their finger out or it’s relegation looming.
EPL Week 12 Predictions: Hull v Crystal Palace betting preview
Hull are a pretty solid outfit and shold easily see off the at times woeful Palace at home. Odds for a Palace win at 4.50 might be tempting for those thinking a surprise turnaround in form could be on the cards. Could the Eagles dare?
EPL Week 12 Predictions: Newcastle v Norwich betting preview
Newcastle have put in some better performances of late and the win at Spurs was unexpected in most quarters. Norwich have had their struggles and you’d expect them to continue at St James’ Park although Chris Hughton would surely ‘love it’ if his team could prove a point for his managerial skills. Big odds for a Norwich win at 4.50 – but the smart money is on the Magpies.
EPL Week 12 Predictions: Stoke City v Sunderland betting preview
Stoke get to test out the reinvigorated Black Cats this week and bookies expect them to get over the line at 2.15. Get 3.60 for a Sunderland win. Big odds of 26.00 for Sunderland at half time then Stoke win – or 41.00 for the the reverse (Stoke lead at half time then Sunderland win).
EPL Week 12 Predictions: West Ham v Chelsea betting preview
The Hammers should be hapless at home as Chelsea look to continue their march up the table, or so think the bookmakers. 5.00 for a home win. Here’s a bet to make it interesting: Half time score 1-0, full time 1-3 at 126.00.
EPL Week 12 Predictions: Man City v Tottenham betting preview
Tough one for Spurs here as Man City have dominated at home this season and this will surely continue against a Spurs team that are big on possession but short on goals. That said, Spurs have been good away from the Lane but their lack of firepower will surely be the weakness. 5.50 for a Tottenham win.
EPL Week 12 Predictions: Cardiff v Man Utd betting preview
5.50 here for a Cardiff win, and if they could repeat their heroics like with Man City it would bring the crowd to life. United are hitting form though and will probably edge this one.
EPL Week 12 Predictions: West Brom v Aston Villa betting preview
Monday night’s TV game sees the Baggies go at it with local rivals Villa. West Brom start home favourites but if Benteke can get back on form for the visitors it will be a tight match. Anyone’s guess this – probably a draw looks safest.
