Round 17 of the Premier League offers plenty of betting value across the board with a high profile affair this Sunday. Among the many matches, these have the absolute best and most profitable. Read on as our expert capper provides his selection of the best picks for this weekend.

West Ham vs. Hull City

West Ham enter as favourites in this crucial fixture of the Premier League round 17. They will look to secure back-to-back victories for just the second time this season after a hard fought result (1-0 against Burley in midweek). Dimitri Payet has created 56 goalscoring chances in the Premier League so far this season, 12 more than any other player. With Andy Carroll back in the team West Ham seem to have better quality in their attack. Hull City on the other hand is travelling with a diminished squad since the start of the season as a number of players are out with injuries. Hull City’s performance when they are playing is awful, with 6 lost matches in a row conceding 19 goals. The Hammers should easily win this match and the value is enough for a home win – 1.67 with William Hill. If you want better odds you can bet on West Ham to win with -1 AH @2.15 with Bet Victor.

West Brom vs. Manchester United

The Baggies impressive run has been built on a strong home form, where they won their last 3 fixtures and scored 10 goals during that process. West Brom should take advantage of their great shape and try to take some points from this match, and if they will provide Rondon with some decent opportunities they might also win against the Red Devils. Finally, United is showing some signs of life under Jose Mourinho, they are on a nine-game unbeaten streak in all competitions, including reaching the semi-finals of the EFL Cup and the last 32 of the Europa League, but it is their draws that have done the most damage in the Premier League. I feel that every time when they are leading 1-0, the Special One is demanding his players to keep that score and defend it - this is so wrong when your name is Manchester United. It’s hard to predict a winner for this match so my top tip will come from the goals market – over 2.5 goals in the match priced at 2.15 with Betfair.

Manchester City vs. Arsenal

Games between City and Arsenal are always tough to predict and this contest could really go either way. If we look at the statistics, there is a big chance that we can see a match full of goals (32 goals in the last 8 clashes head-to-head). City are already seven points behind the league leaders Chelsea and cannot afford to drop any more points if they want to stay in the title race. Guardiola’s side secured their first win in four games after winning 2-0 against Watford in midweek. Sergio Aguero, the Argentine striker, still has two matches left on his four-match ban, while Fernandinho will also miss the tie through suspension. Arsenal are in the position to prove that they are different from previous years, they can win derbies and have a chance for the title. Arsenal holds a pretty good record against Manchester City in the recent games, as the Gunners are undefeated in their last six encounters. City will try to win the 3 points taking advantage of playing on their turf, however, Arsenal has enough quality to cope with pressure and they will give it all not to lose the game. I have 2 tips for this game, so let’s split our stake – Arsenal to win with +0.5 AH @1.83 with Bet Victor; Arsenal to score over 1.5 goals in the match @2.5 with Bet365.
