Premier League Week 10: Odds, Predictions and Betting Picks

The headline from last weekend was Chelsea's turning-over of Manchester United, but what does the weekend of October 29/30/31 hold in store for the Premier League? Let's take a look at the best bets and likely results for all the weekend's matches, with odds from leading bookmakers.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29

Sunderland vs. Arsenal

Sunderland put in a backs-to-the-wall performance against West Ham last time out that couldn't hide the gulf in class between David Moyes' side and teams it should be getting points against if it is to avoid relegation. Jermain Defoe hardly got a sniff at the other end, and things look really bad for the Black Cats, who don't have a win in nine league games.

Unfortunately Arsenal is not the kind of easy opposition a team on the skids needs; this is going to be about damage limitation for Sunderland, and Arsenal is likely to be rampant.

Top Bet: 28/13 with Unibet for Alex Iwobi of Arsenal to score anytime

West Bromwich Albion vs. Manchester City

West Brom played superbly to restrict Liverpool to a narrow 2-1 win at Anfield, and Tony Pulis was effusive about his team afterwards, saying that he couldn't fault anyone's effort. City is without a win in three league games, and Pulis will instruct his side to soak up the pressure and then get the ball quickly to the in-form Salomon Rondon.

No-one expects easy points from The Hawthorns, and this could be a bruising encounter for City, who will not be treated lightly.

Top Bet: 18/5 with Betfred for a draw

Watford vs. Hull City

Liberally-scoring and conceding Watford headed to Swansea with confidence, but left in ninth and with a 0-0 draw that probably disappointed a few hopeful fans. With Hull shipping an alarming number of goals at the moment and with Watford's frontline in good form, there will almost certainly be goals in this game, although it's equally pssible that the Tigers will arrest their run of five defeats in a row.

Top Bet: 11/4 with Sportingbet for a draw

Manchester United vs. Burnley

Jose Mourinho was embarrassed by the 4-0 mauling at Chelsea, losing in front of his former home crowd, and he will make sure there is no repeat from his side. However, what was most bothersome about Sunday's result was the lack of incision from United, who now has to face a Burnley team that took all three points at home to Everton.

Old Trafford is a hard place to get a result, and it seems unlikely Burnley will go away with any of the points, but bet on the compact team making it hard for United to score.

Top Bet: 7/2 with BetVictor for a half-time/full-time result of draw/Man Utd

Tottenham Hotspur vs. Leicester City

Leicester looked more balanced in its win over Crystal Palace on Saturday, with Jamie Vardy given a rest and Ahmed Musa scoring his first league goal in a 3-1 victory. Spurs, for most of last season, were Leicester's closest challengers, and with two tired draws on the run, Leicester, having scored 11 and conceded 15, will be a tough opponent to overcome, with a score draw on the cards.

Top Bet: 14/5 with Ladbrokes for a draw

Middlesbrough vs. Bournemouth

Aitor Karanka needs to find the right team at Middlesbrough soon, because with only one win all season, it's looking difficult in the bottom half of the table for the Teeside team. Bournemouth matched Spurs in every department last weekend, and is a good bet to grab an away win at the Riverside Stadium.

Top Bet: 2/1 with BetStars for a Bournemouth win

Crystal Palace vs. Liverpool

Palace was the team that finally ended Liverpool's title challenge in 2013/14, and there's more than enough pace and power to take the game to Liverpool at home. Christian Benteke, having been discarded by Liverpool, has a point to prove, and with many Palace players seeming to save their best performances for the big games, this could be a draw or even a surprise Eagles victory.

Top Bet: 11/5 with Unibet for Christian Benteke of Crystal Palace to score anytime

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 30

Everton vs. West Ham United

Everton is slipping behind the pack at the top of the table, with no wins in the last four league games, and attackers seemingly running out of ideas. West Ham has definitely improved of late and although it, too, is lacking bite up-front, any team with Dimitri Payet in it will be a major problem for the opposition. A tight game is on the cards here.

Top Bet: 11/4 with Bet365 for a draw

Southampton vs. Chelsea

Having beaten a lacklustre Manchester United, Chelsea must head to a superb Southampton team that has won three of its last five games, and held Manchester City to a draw most recently. Any team conceding only eight goals, as Saints have, are going to be tough to find gaps in, and there's enough hope in recent Southampton performances to see this as a potential upset.

Top Bet: 12/5 with BetFred for a Southampton win

MONDAY, OCTOBER 31

Stoke City vs. Swansea City

Two draws, two wins, and the mood has completely changed at the Bet365 Stadium, with fans having feared relegation for Stoke now looking at the possibility of the team moving further up the table. Swansea can't find goals from anywhere at the moment, and the Potters' key players like Xherdan Shaqiri are coming to the fore at the moment. There won't be a lot in this game, but a Stoke win looks likely.

Top Bet: 14/5 with BoyleSports for Stoke to win by a one-goal margin
