Manchester United vs. Aston Villa
Aston Villa +1 (no push) +170
Manchester United's disappointing season continued when they drew against Sheffield United last weekend, and they currently find themselves in ninth place in the EPL table. United are 4-5-4 on the season, meaning they have won less than 31% of their league games.
Aston Villa are below United in the table (15th place), but their 4-2-7 record puts them only three points behind United in the standings. In addition, Aston Villa are 5th in WhoScored.com's team rankings, compared to 12th for the Red Devils, so by this metric, Villa are actually having a much better season than United is.
Aston Villa should be able to muster up at least one point this weekend, as they have played at a similar -- if not higher -- level than Manchester United at this early stage in the season.
Leicester City vs. Everton
Leicester to win -155
Leicester City are off to a tremendous start, and they sit in second place in the table with 29 points. But the oddsmakers are not treating them as a powerhouse just yet. Leicester are only a modest favorite at home against Everton -- a team who fell at home to Norwich last week -- despite a 15-point gap between the two sides at this early stage in the season.
The Foxes have proven to be miles better than Everton by every metric this season as they are 14 places ahead in the table and 15 places in front in WhoScored's team rankings. Not only that, but Leicester are 5-1-0 at home this year, compared to 1-1-4 away record, so the King Power figures to play a critical role in this matchup.
Leicester should be able to win this game fairly easily, and at -155, the odds are only slightly tilted in favor of the Blue Foxes.
Burnley vs. Crystal Palace
Burnley to win +125
Burnley are currently three points ahead of Crystal Palace in the league table, and they are nine spots ahead of them in WhoScored's rankings. The Clarets seem to have regained their form from two years ago, when they qualified for the Europa League with a seventh-place finish.
Crystal Palace got off to a decent start this season, but they have since gone 0-1-4 in their last five games to drop them to 13th place in the table. On the flip side, Burnley are coming off consecutive 3-0 wins in their last two matches.
Burnley are the better side, and they have the advantage of playing at home, so it should be no problem for them to get the full three points from this game.
