Leicester vs. Liverpool
Leicester +1 (no push) -135
Leicester have moved ahead of Liverpool in the standings, and considering we are now 23 games into the regular season, this can no longer be considered a fluke. Leicester are 13W-4D-6L on the year, but they are 2-2-1 in their last five matches. So even though they are not in their peak form, they are still a very difficult team to beat.
Liverpool have been disappointing this season, and their loss to Manchester City last weekend may have ended their title hopes. The Reds are 11-7-5 on the year, giving them a win rate of only 47.8%. Leicester should provide them with one of their toughest challenges this season, so Liverpool will be hard pressed to get a victory in this one.
Crystal Palace vs. Burnley
Burnley to win +230
Burnley are six points behind Palace in the table, but they do have a game in hand and are only three goals behind on goal difference and 0.9 goals behind in FBref’s expected goal difference. Palace are expected to be without star man Wilfried Zaha while Chris Wood looks unlikely for Burnley.
This game should be a good one as these teams are evenly matched -- yet Burnley is listed as a fairly large underdog at over 2/1 odds. Burnley is 2-1-2 in their last five games, with their losses coming to Manchester City and Chelsea during that time period, so they are in decent form.
This game could go either way, but the odds are too far in Crystal Palace’s favor, making Burnley a quality betting opportunity.
Arsenal vs. Leeds United
Leeds to win +300
Arsenal went on a hot streak to start 2021, going 5-2-0 over a seven-game stretch, but the Gunners have started to dip once again with consecutive losses to Wolves and Aston Villa. Overall, Arsenal have been mediocre, at best, as their 9-4-10 record puts them in the bottom half of the table in 11th place.
Leeds are actually one point ahead of Arsenal, and they have a game in hand on the Gunners. You could make a strong argument that Leeds are simply the better team this season. Despite this, Leeds are 3-1 to win this game, making them a major underdog.
Leeds are in decent form at 3-0-1 in their last four matches, and they are a team that has rarely drawn this season. Their overall record is 10-2-10, giving them a very good 45.5% win rate.
Leeds are a real threat to win this game, and the odds should be much shorter than they are. Take the value on Leeds.
