Southampton vs Tottenham
Tottenham to win -120
Southampton have been unable to handle the top 6 sides in the EPL so far this season, posting a 1W-2D-7L record against such opponents. This equates to only a 30% win/draw percentage against the top sides in the league.
Tottenham are 34 points ahead of Southampton in the table, so they are clearly the much superior side in this matchup. Spurs also boast the best away record in the league at 11-0-4, so being away from home should not be a hindrance in their pursuit of three points against Saints.
Crystal Palace vs Brighton
Brighton +1 (no push) +100
Crystal Palace are only three points ahead of Brighton, and the Seagulls have a game in hand, so there is hardly anything separating these two sides in the standings.
Palace are favored due to their homefield advantage, but they have performed subpar at home this season, earning only 3 wins and 13 points over 14 matches (21.4% winning percentage).
Brighton have been poor away at 2-2-10, but five of those losses came by only a single goal, so they may be a slightly better away side than their record suggests. Brighton should be able to earn at least one point from this match.
Cardiff vs West Ham
Cardiff +1 (no push) -150
Cardiff are 5-2-8 in their home matches this season, equating to an average of 1.13 points per home game. On the flip side, West Ham are 4-3-7 in away matches, equating to an average of 1.07 points per away game.
Overall, Cardiff’s home form is roughly equivalent to West Ham’s away form, so they should be able to muster up at least a draw on their home turf this weekend.
