Four games in the Premier League this weekend, starting with Leeds trip to Molineux on Friday – before Spurs vs West Ham closes out the action.
Wolves vs Leeds
Bruno Lage’s side have won their last two league games and it’s easy to fancy Wolves to keep that run going, even if Leeds earned a first victory in nine attempts last weekend.
The West Yorkshire team beat Norwich at Elland Road on Sunday, but it was a close run thing. Norwich had levelled the score at 1-1 in stoppage time before Joe Gelhardt scored a late winner to secure Leeds that much needed victory.
It was a good result, if too close for comfort. But it also suggests that against better opposition, Jesse Marsch’s side will continue to struggle. Wolves haven’t exactly been the safest of bets over the last few months. But they did beat Everton and Watford in their last two outings, suggesting they know how to get the job done against struggling opposition.
Friday’s visitors to Molineux definitely fit into that category. A win for Wolves at 23/20 seems a strong possibility if you want to keep it simple. Backing the 1-0 win to the hosts at 13/2 is also worth a look, since Wolves have won two of their last three meetings against Leeds with that scoreline.
Aston Villa vs Arsenal
Arsenal lost to Liverpool on Wednesday night but the north London team held their own for much of the game. The Gunners have won their last four away games in the Prem too, so a lunchtime visit to Villa Park on Saturday shouldn’t hold any fears for Mikel Arteta’s side.
That said, it’s best not to underestimate Steven Gerrard’s team – nor to overestimate them either. A home loss to Watford followed a couple of weeks later with a 4-0 drubbing of Southampton suggests anything goes in this match.
Arsenal seem adept at beating sides outside the top six. Villa are more erratic, but Coutinho’s quality has certainly improved the team. With both clubs in reasonably good nick despite recent defeats (Villa lost to West Ham last time out), it’s tough to be too bullish about either team’s chances.
Perhaps focusing on player contributions can offer a more profitable approach. The aforementioned Coutinho has two goals in his last three appearances, and is 15/2 to score the opener here. For Arsenal, Bukayo Saka has scored in three of his team’s last four away wins in the Prem, and is 3/1 to find the net at any time.
Leicester vs Brentford
Leicester might be way off the pace by their own recent standards. But the Foxes’ home record is hardly calamitous. They’ve lost just one of their last seven league games at the King Power, a run which includes a victory over Liverpool.
But Brentford have bucked their ideas up, winning their last two matches. Christian Eriksen looks to have made a difference too. Could Thomas Frank’s visitors catch Leicester napping on Sunday?
If you sense an upset could be on the cards, the Bees are 49/20 to nick the win. Alternatively, you could gamble on Ivan Toney maintaining his exceptional form. The Brentford striker has an impressive seven goals from his last five appearances; he is 13/8 to score any time here.
Spurs vs West Ham
As a grudge match, his London derby is something of a one-sided affair. West Ham supporters seem to be swept up in a great rivalry while Spurs fans shrug.
Still, maybe Spurs have something to galvanise them here. The two sides are level on points, with West Ham ahead on goal difference, but Tottenham are in better form, having won three of their last four league games.
Harry Kane is in terrific form with seven goals in six games, and the England captain loves a goal against West Ham. Over his career, Kane has scored eight goals playing at home against the East London side. Tottenham are 7/10 to win, while Kane is 17/5 to find the net first.
