Premier League Week 11: Odds, Predictions and Betting Picks

There are 10 games this weekend that can net you money this week - and as usual, we've scoured the odds to find the best bets possible for the Premier League fixtures. Let's take a look at who's in the running for a productive weekend.

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 5

Bournemouth vs. Sunderland

Sunderland looked about as desperate as they could against Arsenal, with Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud running riot. However, Bournemouth has shown that, even though it can get results against teams like Spurs on a good day, there also exists the potential to lose to Preston North End in the EFL Cup, or Middlesbrough last weekend in the Premier League.

It's far-fetched to expect a team as abject as Sunderland to get all three points at Dean Court, but a point to take back to Wearside? That's possible.

Top Bet: 31/10 with BetVictor for a draw

Burnley vs. Crystal Palace

This is a Burnley team brimming with confidence. Sean Dyche has the team set up to play in an effective way, and although the long-ball strategy might be predictable, at home it's effective. Crystal Palace, on the other hand, has lost its last three games, and is likely to play deep and on the counter away-from-home, which will not suit Burnley so well. Expect a low-scoring draw.

Top Bet: 11/5 with BetVictor for a draw

Manchester City vs. Middlesbrough

The Manchester City train got back on track against West Brom, with Sergio Aguero and Ilkay Gundogan bossing the game and taking two goals each. It already seems like City has the strength in-depth to challenge for Premier League honours while at least getting through to the Champions League knockout stages - though of course the Abu Dhabi owners won't be satisfied with just that.

Boro looks much-improved based on the evidence of a restorative win over Bournemouth, but City is another prospect altogether, and it would be a major surprise were this not a home win.

Top Bet: 3/1 with BoyleSports for Manchester City to win by one goal

West Ham United vs. Stoke City

Unbeaten in four and with its first three wins of the season coming in the past three games, Stoke is playing very well, and Joe Allen is at the centre of everything good the team does. West Ham might be struggling, but it has a capable group of players who will not make it easy for the visitors.

That said, Stoke is a team with pace, skill and vision, and it looks as though the Potters will enjoy playing on the wide London Stadium pitch. With the teams having conceded a combined total of 46 goals, expect scoring at both ends.

Top Bet: 11/4 with William Hill for Stoke to win

Chelsea vs. Everton

Everton might have got back on track with a win to move up to sixth, but Chelsea took its fourth in a row against a decent Southampton team to remain third. This looks like being another hard-fought win for Chelsea; Diego Costa, who always plays well before Christmas, has eight for the season already, and Eden Hazard, with five goals and an assist, seems intent on showing us all what he can do if he tries. It won't be easy, but Chelsea ought to squeeze through.

Top Bet: 17/5 with Unibet for a half-time/full-time result of draw/Chelsea

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 6

Arsenal vs. Tottenham Hotspur

This is probably the game of the weekend, and Spurs will feel they have caught Arsenal at precisely the wrong time. Arsene Wenger has his side playing stunning football but also winning, which is why the team is joint-top. Spurs lags behind, with Harry Kane missing with an ankle injury and Vincent Janssen not really stepping up to the plate and replacing the England striker.

Arsenal is slight favourite for this game, but it'll be tense.

Top Bet: 6/4 with BetStars for Olivier Giroud to score anytime

Hull City vs. Southampton

It is a long time since those opening two wins for Hull. Since then, it's been a backward slide for the team with the Premier League's worst defence. Southampton, notwithstanding a defeat to Manchester City most recently, has a very impressive defence, and, in Charlie Austin and Nathan Redmond, two attackers in form. This could be tough on Hull.

Top Bet: 5/1 with Betfair for Southampton to win by three or more goals

Liverpool vs. Watford

Look at Liverpool's league position and you might miss how tense a lot of the club's fans get when the ball gets close to the defence; this is not a vintage backline, and a team in as good scoring form as Watford is in should be able to pose problems on the break.

Walter Mazzarri has bedded the team in well, and got Watford up to seventh; there's every reason to think this might end in a draw.

Top Bet: 5/1 with Betway for a draw

Swansea City vs. Manchester United

Manchester United, particularly at the start of David Moyes and Louis van Gaal's reigns, has been known to struggle at Swansea. This Swans side might be a shadow of the ones which won those games, but it's still regaining a semblance of organisation under Bob Bradley, who would relish a backs-to-the-wall draw against a sluggish-looking United that seems short on ideas.

Top Bet: 31/10 with BetVictor for a draw

Leicester City vs. West Bromwich Albion

West Brom might be 16th, but it's only lost four games all season, the same number as Leicester, which is 11th. That tells you how competitive the Premier League is, but also how evenly-matched the mid-table sides all are.

With Leicester wildly inconsistent from week to week, and coming off another Champions League fixture, West Brom will have the extra energy to push for a positive result, and Leicester is unlikely to have all of its usual energy to expend.

Top Bet: 11/4 with Paddy Power for a draw
