Premier League Matchday 15 Predictions
Liverpool -1.25 (-110)
Liverpool have scored 12 goals in their last three EPL games. They thumped Arsenal 4-0, eased to a 4-0 win against Southampton last weekend, and then beat Everton 4-1 in the Merseyside derby on Wednesday.
That has cemented their status as the top-scoring team in the Premier League this season. They are particularly strong on the road, with an average of 3.57 goals scored in their away games.
They will now come up against one of the most parsimonious defenses in the league. Wolves have conceded just six goals through seven home matches, but they will be a little disappointed by back-to-back 0-0 draws against relegation-threatened Norwich and Burnley in the past week.
Wolves could make life difficult for Liverpool on Saturday, but the Reds’ attacking quality should ultimately shine through. They have won their last six games against Wolves, and they should extend that run to seven this weekend.
Tottenham -1.25 (-110)
Tottenham will aim to reignite their bid for a top-four finish when they host Norwich in London on Sunday.
They may be a little fatigued after playing Brentford on Thursday, but they should still have enough firepower to win this game.
Norwich have been galvanized by the arrival of Dean Smith, who recently replaced Daniel Farke as manager, and they are unbeaten in their last four games.
Yet the Canaries still have the worst attacking record in the Premier League this season, and the second-worst defensive record. This is the sort of game in which Spurs forwards Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min could thrive, and they should win by at least two goals.
Everton have tumbled to 14th in the Premier League table after losing six of their last seven games.
The fans were apoplectic after watching their team slump to a humiliating 4-1 defeat to Liverpool on Wednesday.
The defense is leaking goals, and the Toffees look bereft of inspiration in attack, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin still out injured.
Arsenal have won four of their last five games, and they could pile more misery upon Everton in this game.
They must first contend with a trip to Old Trafford on Thursday night, but they should be able to recharge their batteries in time to face Everton on Monday, and the odds on an away win look very attractive.
