Premier League Odds & Best Bets This Week: Schedule, Picks for Matchday 25
Arsenal and Manchester City are on the road this weekend, as the Premier League title race heats up. Both sides will be aiming to open a gap between them and third-place Manchester United. Read on for our Premier League best bets for Matchday 25 based on the best EPL odds.
Pressure is on head coach Graham Potter to deliver results for Chelsea, who are winless in their last four league games. They have a London derby away to a Tottenham side that’s won its last two games at home without conceding a goal.
There are huge games in the fight for Premier League survival, as managerless Southampton, fresh off a win at Chelsea last weekend, head to Leeds. A win for the Saints could see them move out of the drop zone. Elsewhere, West Ham host Nottingham Forest, who have a five-point cushion over the Hammers in the relegation places.
Here are our best Premier League bets for Matchday 25 (odds via DraftKings Sportsbook, FanDuel Sportsbook, Caesars, and PointsBet; pick confidence based on a 1-to-5-star scale).

Premier League top picks
Moneyline: Tottenham (+150 via PointsBet) vs. Chelsea ⭐⭐⭐
Despite all of their spending in the January transfer window, Chelsea can’t buy a win at the minute. They’re winless in their last four Premier League games, and lost to bottom club Southampton last week. They’ve only won twice since the Premier League resumed after the World Cup break. The Blues have failed to beat any of the top seven teams in the league this season.
Spurs haven’t conceded a goal in either of their last two home games, including the 1-0 over Manchester City earlier this month. They host a Chelsea side that has scored the fewest Premier League goals (six) since the start of November. The Blues have scored more than one goal just once in their last 14 games. They’re a club in freefall and Graham Potter’s job is in jeopardy. If they can’t score goals, they won’t be able to keep pace with a Spurs team boasting Harry Kane, Son Heung-Min, and Richarlison in attack.
The odds are favorable for a home side that’s facing a team that is struggling. BetMGM and Caesars have Spurs priced at +145, whereas the better value among our main sportsbooks is +150 via DraftKings, FanDuel, and PointsBet.
Spread: Manchester City (-2, +130 via DraftKings) vs. Bournemouth ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Manchester City have a 100% record against Bournemouth in the Premier League, beating the Cherries in all of their 11 top flight encounters. Bournemouth have never beaten City in any other league meetings in the English football pyramid.
Since the World Cup break, Bournemouth have scored just three goals in the league. Although they did find the net last week in their 1-0 over Wolves. The 26 Premier League goals that Erling Haaland has scored this season is five more than the whole Cherries team have managed. City have scored 60 goals in the competition this season and have conceded the fourth fewest.
Pep Guardiola will have his side fired up for this match on Saturday, after two frustrating results in the Premier League and UEFA Champions League this past week.
I expect City to head to the southcoast and take care of business, which is why I’m confidently backing them to cover. If they get an early goal, the floodgates could open. DraftKings is the only book offering -2 ATS. For this match, it’s a good play that delivers positive odds.
Total: West Ham vs. Nottingham Forest Under 2.5 goals (-140 via Caesars) ⭐⭐⭐
Only two teams have scored fewer goals than Forest (18) in the Premier League this season, while West Ham have only scored 19. Forest’s three goals on the road are the fewest scored by an away side during the current campaign.
This match might not live long in the memory for fans. Nottingham Forest’s 68 shots on target are the lowest in the league. Only Wolves have a lower shot conversion rate than West Ham.
The books aren’t expecting goals in this match. PointsBet has the price as low as -150 for this play. DraftKings and Caesars have the best price at -140. It will be defense first for both sides, as they aim to avoid defeat.
Prop: Crystal Palace vs. Liverpool both teams to score no draw (+155 via DraftKings) ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Clean sheets haven’t been common for either team this season. Liverpool have had seven from 22 games, while Palace have played 23 and posted just five shutouts. Before their last two matches, Liverpool managed just one clean sheet in 10 games. Palace have scored in each of their last three matches in the competition.
Crystal Palace have won more games after conceding first (four) than any other team in the Premier League. However, Liverpool have won all the matches they’ve scored first in this term (eight). Despite being winless in their last seven league matches, Palace have scored in four of those encounters during that span.
If Liverpool defend as poorly as they did in Tuesday’s 5-2 defeat to Real Madrid, Palace could be set to win their first game since December. With each side struggling to keep clean sheets, I’m confident in making this a four-star play. We don’t need a particular team to win. Provided there’s a winner and both teams find the net, we’re in pocket.
DraftKings is the only book offering this play. Others have the option to bet on both teams to score, but we must play a specific team to win. Although the odds are higher for those outcomes, this play gives us a great chance of winning.
