Chelsea vs. Manchester United is the pick of the EPL games this weekend, but you can also find value on the likes of Everton, Liverpool and Bournemouth. Let's cash some soccer tickets!

<h2 style="text-align:center">[/]{"component":"video", "type":"youtube", "url":"", "videoSize":"Large" }[/]</h2><h2 style="text-align:center"><a href="" title="Game Odds">Chelsea vs. Manchester United</a></h2><h2 style="text-align:center">Saturday, 7:30 a.m. ET</h2><p>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3507190, "sportsbooksIds":[999996,93,238,169,999991], "LineTypeId":2, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]</p><p>Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho could be axed from his job if he loses to his former club on Saturday. He is on thin ice after presiding over a dreadful start to the campaign, publicly criticizing his paymasters and rowing with his star players. He was in real trouble in his last game, as the Red Devils trailed Newcastle 2-0 at halftime, but a stunning second-half comeback saw them win 3-2 and earn him a reprieve. Yet the collective trigger finger of the Man United board is distinctly itchy, and another bad result could see Mourinho fired. He is the favorite to be the first Premiership manager to leave his post this season, at just -150 with <a href=";book= William Hill" rel="nofollow" title="Top Rated Sportsbook">William Hill</a>. Chelsea has started the season in sensational form under new manager Maurizio Sarri. They have not lost a game, they are top of the table along with Manchester City and Liverpool, and star player Eden Hazard is on fire. The Blues will be further emboldened by their 1-0 victory against Man United in May’s FA Cup final, so <a href="" title="Live EPL Odds">a Chelsea home victory at odds of -137</a> with William Hill looks attractive.</p><p> </p><h2 style="text-align:center"><a href="" title="Game Odds">Bournemouth vs. Southampton</a></h2><h2 style="text-align:center">Saturday, 10 a.m. ET</h2><p>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3507187, "sportsbooksIds":[999996,93,238,169,999991], "LineTypeId":2, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]</p><p>The Cherries have won three games on the bounce to surge up to sixth in the table and they should be brimming with confidence. Local rival Southampton would kill for such buoyancy after taking just five points from their opening eight games. They have already lost five times this season, and boss Mark Hughes is second-favorite in the Premiership sack race. They lost 3-0 at home to Chelsea last time out, while in-form Bournemouth thrashed Watford 4-0 on the road. They are playing some sumptuous football at present and the +110 available at <a href=";book= William Hill" rel="nofollow" title="Top Rated Sportsbook">William Hill</a> on a home win looks great.</p><p> </p><h2 style="text-align:center"><a href="" title="Game Odds">West Ham vs. Tottenham</a></h2><h2 style="text-align:center">Saturday, 10 a.m. ET</h2><p>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3507199, "sportsbooksIds":[999996,93,238,169,999991], "LineTypeId":2, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]</p><p>The Hammers’ upturn in form came to an abrupt halt when they lost 1-0 to Brighton last time out. That left them marooned in 15th place in the table, 11 points and 10 places below fierce London rival Tottenham. Spurs have equaled their best start to a Premiership campaign, and they fought hard to beat Cardiff 1-0 before the international break, but they have not looked entirely convincing in the absence of injured star midfielders Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli. Yet games between these two often see plenty of goals, and "both teams to score" and "over" 2.5 goals look good at -105 with <a href=";book= William Hill" rel="nofollow" title="Top Rated Sportsbook">William Hill</a>. With the likes of Harry Kane and Marko Arnautovic on the pitch, we should be in for an entertaining game.</p><p> </p><h2 style="text-align:center"><a href="" title="Game Odds">Huddersfield vs. Liverpool</a></h2><h2 style="text-align:center">Saturday, 12:30 p.m. ET</h2><p>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3507194, "sportsbooksIds":[999996,93,238,169,999991], "LineTypeId":2, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]</p><p>Liverpool made a blistering start to the season, but their campaign has faltered somewhat and they are now winless in four games. A trip to Huddersfield could provide the perfect opportunity to get the season back on track, as <a href="" title="Free Sports Picks">they have the pace, dynamism and flair</a> to rip this shaky Terriers’ backline apart. Huddersfield has conceded 17 goals in eight games, more than two per match, while Liverpool has scored 15 in eight. Liverpool -1.75 Asian handicap looks great at +110 with <a href=";book=Bet365" rel="nofollow" title="Top Rated Sportsbook">Bet365</a>. Another interesting option could be Liverpool and "over" 2.5 goals at +100.</p><p> </p><h2 style="text-align:center"><a href="" title="Game Odds">Everton vs. Crystal Palace</a></h2><h2 style="text-align:center">Sunday, 11 a.m. ET</h2><p>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3507192, "sportsbooksIds":[999996,93,238,169,999991], "LineTypeId":2, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]</p><p>Palace has made a slow start to the season and consecutive defeats to Bournemouth and Wolves have left them 14th in the table and low on confidence. Everton is finding their feet once again under Marco Silva and they picked up a strong 2-1 win away at Leicester last time out. They have now taken seven points from a possible nine in their last three games, and optimism is building up again among the Goodison Park faithful. They have the firepower to overwhelm the Eagles in this game, and the -112 at <a href=";book= William Hill" rel="nofollow" title="Top Rated Sportsbook">William Hill</a> looks tempting.</p>
