A second straight round of Premier League action is on the menu this week, match day 22 which follows midweek top flight action. Here’s a breakdown of all the soccer odds and some choice soccer picks.

Recapping Match Day 21
Leicester City closed the gap on Arsenal in the table with a pivotal win at White Hart Lane. The Foxes upset the Spurs with a 1-0 win on the road and came through as the whopping underdogs (a high of +420 at 5Dimes) in money line markets; not to mention, they were our choice soccer pick to win or draw at -105 soccer odds.

Arsenal, meanwhile, failed to maintain the slim edge over Leicester City when they settled on a 3-3 draw at Anfield (a score line that saw our OVER 2.5 soccer pick cash for soccer bettors too). Still, a point on the road is a positive result for Arsene Wenger and his lads that has them improving to three games undefeated in a row.

Elsewhere, Man City leaked points to Everton at the Etihad when they settled on a scoreless draw and West Ham United climbed to fifth place in the table following a 3-1 win over Bournemouth, their third straight win. Chelsea, meanwhile, continued to struggle on form with a 2-2 draw at home to West Brom.

Here’s a look at the weekend’s fixtures complete with money line odds according to Bet365. Below, we feature several must-spot matchups and serve up choice soccer picks.

 

 

Tottenham vs. Sunderland
The Spurs saw their run of five games undefeated across all competitions snapped by a 1-0 loss to the resilient Foxes at home. They’ll be keen to get back into winning form at home when they host the Sunderland Black Cats. Sunderland are coming off a 4-2 win over Swansea City on the road, but they’re still mired in the relegation quagmire, boasting inconsistent form in their last six games (2-0-4). Conspicuously, their setbacks have come against the likes of Arsenal, Man City and Liverpool. It’s a tall order for the Black Cats to mastermind the upset at White Hart Lane, making this game a rather straightforward soccer pick on the hosts.

Chelsea vs. Everton
Chelsea continue to struggle on form, particularly against sides they should be handling with relative ease. Most recently, the Blues settled on a 2-2 draw to West Bromwich Albion, marking their third draw in their last five top-flight fixtures ( 0-0 to Man U and 2-2 to Watford). That form doesn’t bode well against the pacey Toffees, who are coming off hard fought draws to the Spurs and Citizens. Indeed, Everton held Man City to a scoreless draw in midweek soccer betting, which is no mean feat and nothing to sniff at. With the Blues influx, it’s somewhat surprising they are so strongly favoured on the soccer odds board. So much so we’re of a mind to give their overly optimistic soccer odds a skip. Point is Chelsea simply don’t command the respect of seasons past and opponents don’t fear them as much as they used to do. Everton as the road underdogs to win or draw, therefore, holds appeal for our soccer picks.

Aston Villa vs. Leicester City
Leicester City are tied at the top of the table with Arsenal, yet they descend on the hapless Villa trading just shy of EVEN money at +120. It beggars belief. That odds makers would disrespect Claudio Ranieri and his lads in the face of established Premier League standards is one thing. That they would do so against bottom of the table Aston Villa, who are one foot out of the Premier League if they don’t somehow turnaround their fortunes down the stretch, is just ridiculous. Take the Foxes at +120 to win outright on your soccer picks.
