[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3222343, "sportsbooksIds":[19,169,139,1096,93], "LineTypeId":2, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]

The Citizens destroyed Bournemouth 4-0 last weekend to extend their amazing run to 17 Premier League wins in a row being 13 points clear at the top of the table after the 1st half of the season. They have the best attack in the top-flight league with 60 goals scored in 19 rounds and the best defense with just 12 goals conceded in the process. Meanwhile, Newcastle managed to put an end to their 9-game winless streak beating West Ham 3-2 on the road. They sit 15th in the table with 18 points being just 2 points above the danger zone as the fight for relegation is getting more and more intense with the bottom 8 teams being separated by just 6 points. We expect a goal-fest and another convincing away win with Manchester City continuing their march toward the EPL title. Best pick for the match: Manchester City to win and over 3.5 goals in the match at +140 with Coral.

Watford vs. Leicester

After a great start to their 2017/18 campaign, Watford host Leicester on Boxing Day looking to avoid 5 consecutive defeats in the EPL. Despite being winless in their last 3 matches across all competitions, Leicester enter this match full of confidence after a priceless 2-2 draw against Manchester United. The Foxes are looking a lot better under Claude Puel being unbeaten on the road since 26th August. Watford have huge injury issues with some of their most important players being ruled-out of this clash. Seven of their last 8 mutual encounters produced 3 or more goals with Leicester winning 3 of their last 4 head-to-heads against Watford. The Foxes should have enough to win this match and close the gap on the European spots. Best pick for the match: Leicester to win at +195 with Unibet.

West Brom vs. Everton

[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3222337, "sportsbooksIds":[19,169,139,1096,93], "LineTypeId":2, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]

West Brom are winless in their last eight EPL home fixtures sitting 19th in the standings and are looking for their 1st win under their new manager Alan Pardew. Everton are enjoying a great period with Sam Allardyce lifting them into the top half of the top-flight league table. We expect a close encounter with Everton being able to return home with at least 1 points from this away match. West Brom’s Nacer Chadli, Matt Phillips, James Morrison and Craig Dawson are expected to be fit and join their squad following their injuries. The Toffees scored at least 2 goals in their last 4 away matches against West Brom winning the last 3 games on the road. Best pick for the match: Everton to win with DNB (Draw No Bet) at +123 with Unibet.

Crystal Palace vs. Arsenal

[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3222412, "sportsbooksIds":[19,169,139,1096,93], "LineTypeId":2, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]

Crystal Palace have been in fine form of late being unbeaten in their last 8 Premier League fixtures sitting 16th in the standings with 18 points after 19 rounds with Roy Hodgson bringing consistency in their performances. The Eagles are still in danger being just 2 points clear of the relegation zone after the 1st half of the season. Arsenal played out a thrilling 3-3 draw match against Liverpool last weekend but failed to win 2 games in a row. This match has the potential for a goal-fest with The Gunners having huge attacking firepower and the Eagles scoring goals for fun in recent weeks. Best pick for the match: Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals in the match at -105 with Coral.
