Burnley vs Newcastle
Newcastle +1 (no push) -120
Newcastle travels to Burnley this weekend with decent odds give to a Newcastle win or a draw. Newcastle is ahead of Burnley by four points in the table and by five places in the WhoScored.com team rankings, but despite this, they are still the underdogs.
Burnley got off to a decent start this season, but they are 0W-0D-3L in their last three games and are 2-0-6 in their last eight. Newcastle have been in superior form, at 4-1-1 in their last six matches, and they should be able to earn at least a draw in this contest.
Sheffield United vs Aston Villa
Aston Villa +1 (no push) -110
Sheffield currently sits nine places ahead of Villa in the league table, but those nine spots are separated by only seven points. Villa are actually ahead of Sheffield United in the WhoScored.com team rankings.
Sheffield United are not a great home team, and at 3-1-4 at home, they are only winning 37.5% of their home matches. On the flip side, many will point to Villa’s struggling form as a reason to stay away from them here (Villa is only 1-1-5 in their last seven games), but all five of these losses have come against teams in the top six in the league table.
Sheffield United is off to a good start, and they sit in eighth place but even so, they will be a reprieve compared to what Villa has been facing lately. Sheffield United will be hard-pressed to win this match.
Manchester United vs Everton
Manchester United to win -130
Everton had a huge win at home last weekend against Chelsea, but they have still failed to demonstrate much quality throughout the majority of the season. Everton rank nine spots below Manchester United in the table and seven spots below the Red Devils in WhoScored.com’s team rankings.
United are clearly the superior side, and to top it off, Everton has been brutal away from home this season, at 1-1-6 with a -9 goal differential. This makes them the second worst away team in the league this campaign.
Everton may be close to turning the corner after their win against Chelsea, but Old Trafford is not an easy place to get a win or a draw. Until Everton shows more consistency, it is still prudent to pick against them in these top-tier matchups.
