Premier League action continues this week with lots of games starting on Tuesday all the way until Sunday. Our expert capper goes over most valuable games for betting edge.

The Gunners' are riding high in second place in the Premier League table after four consecutive league wins and they haven't lost a match in the league since the opening day of the season at home to Liverpool.

Arsene Wenger's side are odds-on at -110 across the board to get another win. That might appear a bit short for a side that has won just once in their four visits to the Blue half of Merseyside, but Everton are in shocking form and on this occasion the short odds look justified.

After a bright start to the season for Ronald Koeman, his team is really struggling for any form with just one win in their last ELEVEN matches.

Goodison Park has always been a fortress for the Toffeemen, but recently they've won just once in their last five matches and even at +326 it's just impossible to make a case for them to turn their fortunes around against one of the in-form sides in the country.

Both of these teams played their parts in two very entertaining matches last weekend, and with the goals flying in all over the Premier League, both sides are expected to contribute to goals again in this one.

Over 2.5 goals is the best bet in the match at 1.72 and with both teams scoring in seven of the last nine Everton matches and in nine of the last 10 matches involving Arsenal BTTS punters will be all over the "yes" at 1.66.

Bournemouth vs Leicester

CHAMPIONS Leicester finally showed the form that took them to their shock Premier League title last season with their 4-2 home win against Man City on Saturday night and the Foxes can continue where they left off with a win at Bournemouth.

Claudio Ranieri's side can solely concentrate on the Premier League for the next few months until they face Sevilla in the last 16 of the Champions League and they should get the better of the Cherries.

Leicester are +200 for the win and I can't understand why they aren't favorites with Bournemouth on offer at +150 and they were very poor at the weekend in the 3-2 defeat at Turf Moor against Burnley and their defensive frailties are a cause for concern.

In their last three Premier League matches, they've conceded three goals in every one and with Leicester and in particular Jamie Vardy full of confidence after his brace at the weekend I fancy goals in this one.

Over 2.5 looks massive at -130 and that has been a winner in four of the last five Bournemouth matches and in the last seven Leicester games. Therefore the over looks like a safe betting pick again as well as does both teams to score "yes" which is  -151 with Bet365 and has come in six times in the last seven Leicester matches.

Manchester City vs Watford

WHAT on earth is going on at Manchester City?

A fortnight ago Pep Guardiola's men were the odds-on favorites to win the Premier League title, but just two wins in their last seven against lowly Crystal Palace and Burnley have seen them pushed out to 5/1 third-favorites and drifting every week.

The big problem for Guardiola is the alarming amount of goals that his side has conceded with eight against them in the last three matches and they've also managed to concede in the last eight.

The great footballing genius that is Pep has to be questioned on his signings of goalkeeper Claudio Bravo and John Stones and with that defensive risk, they make no appeal at a very short -355 for the win.

Watford played very well in the 3-2 home win against Everton at the weekend and in the last few weeks, the Hornets have been an entertaining watch and goals are the way to go in this one.

Both teams have scored in the last eight City games and also in four of the last five Watford matches and with the Premier League seeing loads of goals flying in at the moment both teams to score "yes" with these two defences is the best bet in the match at -125 with Stan James is the way to profit.

Middlesbrough vs Liverpool

A contrast of footballing styles will be on display at the Riverside when Premier League bores Middlesbrough host the entertainers Liverpool.

Over the last few weeks, Middlesbrough has been sliding down the league table and Aitor Karanka has a relegation fight on his hands.

The Riversiders' are a big looking +550 for the win but with just two wins in their last 14 matches, it's hard to make any case for them even at those prices.

Liverpool have failed to impress in their last two matches without a win against either Bournemouth or West Ham conceding six goals and yet they are still -162 for the win, but against a Middlesbrough side that in their last nine matches eight of them have seen under 2.5 goals, I believe that goals will be hard to come in this one and I am taking Liverpool to win to nil which is +170 at Paddy Power.

Sunderland vs Chelsea

CHELSEA made it nine consecutive wins in the Premier League on Sunday after their hard fought 1-0 win at home to West Brom and they are a confident selection to make it a perfect TEN when they make the long trip north to the Stadium of Light to face Sunderland.

Chelsea is on a different level to everyone in the Premier League and the bookies aren't taking any chances on them to win this at -265.

Antonio Conte's side will win, but you can't back any team away from home in the Premier League at those short prices but with eight clean sheets in their last nine matches and up against one of the lowest scorers in the top flight a Chelsea win to nil is a bit of value at +130 at BoyleSports.

West Ham vs Burnley

IT'S a must-win match at the London Stadium for both West Ham and Burnley and I think the home side will have a very rare good evening at their new home.

The Hammers' played well in the 2-2 draw at Anfield on the weekend and the one thing they aren't having a problem with is scoring goals and there extra attacking threat make them a good bet in this one at -149 with Pinnacle.

Slaven Bilic's side haven't won in their last seven matches but the fixture list hasn't been kind to them with matches against Man United, Tottenham, Arsenal, Liverpool and Everton and now they can show they are a much better side to the visitors who haven't won in seven away from home and have only managed just the one goal.

Crystal Palace vs Manchester United

PREMIER League strugglers Crystal Palace host in-form Manchester United at Selhurst Park on Wednesday in what will be a repeat of last years Wembley FA Cup final.

On that occasion, United edged a close one 2-1 on a summer's day last May and this time around I reallY can't see Palace manager Alan Pardew celebrating with any more infamous dance moves and the visitors look decent value for another win at -135 with 5Dimes.

Palace are struggling big time and they produced yet another awful defensive performance in the 3-3 draw at Hull at the weekend and there really is very little to like about their chances in this one even at the general price of +400 on offer with most.

In their last match at Selhurst Park they did produce their best performance of what has been a bitterly disappointing season after a 3-0 win against Southampton, but that was The Eagles only victory in their last NINE and they really could struggle against their more illustrious opponents and with them conceding 21 goals in their last seven matches I am taking United -1 goal at 2.30 with Bet365 on the asian handicap lines.

Stoke vs Southampton

STOKE v Southampton at the Bet365 Stadium looks one of the toughest Premier League matches to call on the midweek fixture list.

The bookies can't really split the sides but it has come as a surprise that Southampton are +150 favorites for the win.

Stoke have only lost twice in their last eight matches and the +230 at Bet365 does look a big price but the match betting looks one to avoid and I am swerving that market.

The one thing I can't see in this is many goals as Southampton are missing top goalscorer Charlie Austin for three months and under 2.5 goals has been a winner in six of the last seven Saints' matches.

In four of Stoke's last five games under 2.5 goals has also been a winner and my main bet in this one is under 2.5 goals again.

Tottenham vs Hull

Tottenham thumped Swansea 5-0 in their last home match at White Hart Lane and Maurico Pochettino's side can bounce back from their 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford with another heavy win over strugglers Hull.

Spurs have scored 11 goals in their last three matches and up against a Hull side that has failed to win in their last five and conceded nine goals in that period, another heavy defeat looks on the cards.

The Londoners' are very short at -400 for a highly probably win.

West Brom vs Swansea

WEST BROM are quickly becoming one of the most underrated sides in the Premier League and the bookies look to have underrated Tony Pulis' side for this one at the general +105 on the home win here looks the best bet of all the midweek fixtures.

The Baggies played very well against Chelsea at the weekend and with that their only defeat in their last five matches I can't believe that they are not odds-on favorites to win as they should be a lot, lot shorter.

Swansea won 3-0 against Crystal Palace, but they've only won just two games in the last 15 and with just one away win in the Premier League which was on the opening day of the season the West Brom win is the best bet this week.
