Premier League Week 13: Odds, Predictions and Betting Picks

Premier League Week 13: Odds, Predictions and Betting Picks

Some huge fixtures, and huge opportunities for winning bets, await people in the upcoming Premier League weekend, so let's take a look at the teams and players to watch on Saturday and Sunday, November 26 and 27.

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 26

Burnley vs. Manchester City

Although City ought to win this one easily, the richest team in the Premier League has been making heavy weather of routine fixtures all season. Added to this, there are few things guaranteed to bring you down to earth with a bump more than going from Champions League football to a trip to Turf Moor.

That's not because Burnley is particularly dreary - it's a lovely town - but Sean Dyche's side plays with grit and passion at home, and is incredibly hard to beat. Watch out for more home heroics.

Top Bet: 24/5 with Betfair for a draw

Hull City vs. West Bromwich Albion

Ever since he was hired full-time by Hull City, things haven't gone as planned for Mike Phelan. His team was taken to the cleaners by Sunderland in the bottom-of-the-table clash last weekend, and looks doomed already to relegation.

West Brom will be a tough opponent to break down, and has Salomon Rondon still in barnstorming form. A win looks within Albion's reach, as does a potential top-half placing.

Top Bet: 17/10 with BetVictor for a West Brom win

Swansea vs. Crystal Palace

The slide back down the table continues for Palace, which can't seem to put together a string of good results. It's a good time to be playing bottom-placed Swansea, then, especially as Swansea can't seem to get the win that's been elusive since Bob Bradley took over.

It's difficult to see anything but a Palace win, even considering that the side has lost five on the bounce. Don't expect a classic, it will almost certainly be low-scoring.

Top Bet: 12/5 with William Hill for a Crystal Palace win

Leicester City vs. Middlesbrough

Both of these teams were beaten last time out by top-half, European football-chasing teams, Boro by Chelsea and Leicester by Watford, and consequently both find themselves in difficult positions just above the relegation zone.

It's difficult to predict which Leicester will turn up for any given game, but the same could be said for inconsistent Boro. This will be a game where one team benefits from the other's mistake, and the errors could cancel each other out.

Top Bet: 13/5 with SportingBet for a draw

Liverpool vs. Sunderland

After missing a series of sitters, Liverpool had to settle for a 0-0 draw at Southampton, and so the erstwhile table-topping team slips to second. With Sunderland's recent resurgence powered by a back-in-form Victor Anichebe, along with ex-Everton manager David Moyes, there will be some putting money on at least a point for Sunderland. While that's not likely, that doesn't mean you shouldn't give it a go.

Top Bet: 11/5 with bwin for Sunderland to win as part of a Liverpool Win No Bet

Chelsea vs. Tottenham Hotspur

Of these two opponents, Chelsea is on bulldozing form, having gone unbeaten since Antonio Conte changed to a three-man defence. Six wins in a row is formidable, and Spurs, with only two wins in the last six games, will be slightly fearful of being the latest victim.

This will most likely be a Chelsea win, so you should focus on the margin of victory, and potential scorers.

Top Bet: 13/5 with Ladbrokes for Chelsea to win by one goal

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 27

Watford vs. Stoke City

This will be evenly-matched, as Watford is eighth but scores a lot, concedes even more, and can't string results together. Stoke has just ended its unbeaten run at the hands of Bournemouth. By a whisker this looks like Watford's game, but anything can happen, and often seems to this season when these sides are concerned.

Top Bet: 12/5 with Bet365 for four or more goals to be scored

Arsenal vs. Bournemouth

Arsenal's late, but deserved, draw at Manchester United means that Arsene Wenger's team is fourth and well in contention for the title. Bournemouth is a tough opponent for anyone these days, as shown in the win over Stoke last weekend, but Arsenal, who will likely not allow loanee Jack Wilshere to play against his parent club, holds the best cards going into this match, which ought to be a one- or two-goal victory.

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

Manchester United vs. West Ham United

Jose Mourinho needs a win with Manchester United like he needs to escape from his hotel in Manchester, where he has confessed his personal life is a "disaster" at the moment. West Ham continues to hover around the drop-zone having lost, drawn and lost the past three matches, and realistically United should get past Slaven Bilic's side without too much trouble, with or without Wayne Rooney or Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Top Bet: 10/3 with Paddy Power for United to win by two goals

Southampton vs. Everton

Saints are having an improved time of it at the moment, sitting in tenth, although it's four matches since the last win. Everton hasn't looked the same side since that 5-0 drubbing against Chelsea two weekends ago; a draw against Swansea may have made the board jittery around the team's form, and the position of manager Ronald Koeman.

The shutout against Liverpool was impressive, and showed Southampton is capable of locking out any attack in the Premier League. Against Everton at home, Claude Puel's team has the chance to get back to winning ways.

Top Bet: 13/2 with BetVictor for a 1-0 Southampton win
