Matchday 19 Premier League Top Picks

Spread: Manchester United -2 (+130) ⭐⭐⭐⭐

United’s victory at Wolves on New Year’s Eve was Erik ten Hag’s 10th Premier League win over his first 16 games. 

Bournemouth have lost six of their last seven Premier League affairs. The 36 goals they’ve conceded this season are a league-worst.

They head to Old Trafford to face the Red Devils, who have scored six in their last three Premier League matches while conceding just one. The Cherries’ leaky defense faces the ominous task of shutting out the in-form Marcus Rashford. The United forward has scored in three consecutive appearances in all competitions for the club, doing so for the first time since November 2019.

Manchester United are on a roll under Ten Hag, so expect them to cover here. Most books are offering 1.5 on the spread, all with negative odds. It’s worth the half goal at DraftKings to push the juice up.

Moneyline: Southampton (+100) ⭐⭐⭐

This game is huge for both Southampton and Nottingham Forest. These are the types of matches each team needs to win to boost survival hopes. The Saints are in terrible form, losing each of their last five outings in the competition. 

Both of these sides are poor defensively and struggle to score. The team that scores could win. Southampton have been in this position before and are experienced enough to find a way to survive. They benefit from the extra rest day and haven’t needed to travel far over the festive period, which will give them an advantage on Wednesday. 

Most of our major sportsbooks are offering lower prices for Southampton on the moneyline, so shop around. PointsBet is featuring the only plus odds for this play.

Total: Arsenal-Newcastle Over 2.5 goals (-120) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Newcastle were held to a goalless draw at home against Leeds on New Year’s Eve. It was their fourth 0-0 showing of the season, which is more than any other Premier League side.

But don’t let that sway you from this bet. Matches involving Arsenal have gone over the total in each of their last two contests, and three of their last six in the league. 

Only Manchester City have scored more goals (44) in the competition this season than Arsenal (40). Newcastle United (32) have scored the fifth-most goals in the Premier League. The Magpies don’t want to lose more ground on the Gunners, so they’re going to attack. A draw won’t hurt Arsenal, but they’re built to be aggressive. This could be an end-to-end encounter. 

The books are expecting goals, though shop around for the price. The Over is -141 at BetMGM and as low as -130 at Caesars. The best value lies with FanDuel at -120.

Prop: Both teams score, Tottenham win (+320) ⭐⭐⭐⭐

With Manchester United and Liverpool finding their form over the Christmas period, Spurs need a win to stay in the race for a top-four finish. 

They possess the firepower to do it, but they can also be exposed at the back, as seen over the past week. The team heads to southeast London for a derby match with Crystal Palace on Wednesday. Patrick Vieira’s side enjoyed an impressive road win at Bournemouth on New Year’s Eve, and the club is now three points outside the top seven. 

The Selhurst Park crowd will be loud, and the home support will boost Palace against a Spurs side that’s had less time to prepare. However, Tottenham should own the quality to win this scrappy midweek match. Antonio Conte won’t be happy with his team's recent displays, and he'll make sure the squad is fired up for this one.
