Wolves vs Chelsea
Chelsea to Win -125
There is no question that Chelsea are a more talented team than Wolves as is evident by the 15-point gap between the two sides in the league table after only 14 matches. Chelsea rank nine spots ahead of Wolves in the league table and six spots ahead in WhoScored.com's team ratings. They are without a doubt the superior side.
Wolves have the advantage of playing at home, but they are a mediocre 2W-2D-3L at their home ground this season, while Chelsea are 4-1-1 away from home.
Wolves have managed only one point in their last six matches, hitting a poor run of form after their hot start. Chelsea should win this game without much issue, especially if Wolves rotate their squad.
Brighton vs Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace - Draw no Bet +100
Brighton have gotten off to a good start this season as they currently sit in 11th place, three spots ahead of Crystal Palace. However, much of their hot start may be due to some good fortune.
Brighton are 19th in the league in shots conceded per game (16.9) and 19th in the league in shots taken per game (8.6). Conversely, Crystal Palace are 8th in the league in shots conceded (12.2) and 10th in the league in shots taken (12.6).
Of course, not all shots are created equally. But this is a substantial gap between the two sides, and one has to be wary that Brighton’s luck is going to run out sooner rather than later.
Everton vs Newcastle
Everton to win -165
Everton are 10 points better and nine spots higher than Newcastle in the table through the first 14 games of the season.
Everton will be at home, where they are 5-1-1, including wins in each of their last four home games. Marco Silva’s side is coming off a heartbreaking loss on a last-second goal to rival Liverpool, so perhaps that will provide some extra motivation for this midweek fixture.
Newcastle have yet to earn a single point against teams currently in the top eight (0-0-6 record), and it seems unlikely that they break that streak away from home. Everton should get the win at Goodison Park.
