Premier League Best Bets Matchweek 23

Last Updated: Feb 11, 2023

The battle to avoid the relegation zone is tighter than the battle for the top four, with six teams within six points of the drop zone.

Leeds United have sacked manager Jesse Marsch following a loss to Nottingham Forest, leaving them safe from relegation only due to goal differential.

Meanwhile, Arsenal and Manchester City lost over the weekend, allowing Manchester United to inch closer to title contention with their 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace.

Clubs will continue to jockey for position as the Premier League season rages on, but what are the best bets for Matchweek 23 in the Premier League? Read on for my picks and predictions below.

Bournemouth vs Newcastle Best Bet

Newcastle Win to Nil (+125) at BetMGM Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Newcastle must travel 350 miles for an away match versus Bournemouth, but I do not expect that to hinder Eddie Howe‘s side.

The Magpies have been fantastic on the defensive end this season, conceding a league-best 12 goals. Meanwhile, the Cherries have reached the back of the net just 19 times, the sixth-worst mark in the EPL.

Bournemouth are winless in their previous eight matches, scoring just three goals in the process.

A Newcastle victory and a clean sheet seem like a solid bet, making this our EPL pick of the day.

Fulham vs Nottingham Forest Best Bet

Fulham Win & Over 2.5 Total Goals (+195) at BetMGM Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Forest are on a five-match unbeaten streak following their victory over Leeds last weekend. However, I expect their luck to run out on the road against Fulham, who are having a strong season with a 9-5-8 record.

The Cottagers have posted a goal differential of two, with 32 goals scored compared to 30 conceded, whereas Nottingham have allowed 35.

It is possible that Forest keeps the match close, but I expect a high-scoring contest, with Fulham walking away with three points. If you are looking for a player prop, Cottagers striker Aleksandar Mitrovic is a strong bet to reach the back of the net this weekend.

Leicester City vs Tottenham Best Bet

Over 2.5 Total Goals (-130) at BetMGM Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Only two clubs have conceded more goals than the 37 Leicester City have this season, and both teams are at the bottom of the table (Bournemouth and Southampton).

However, the Foxes have managed to score 32 times thanks to James Maddison and Harvey Barnes, while Harry Kane and Spurs have reached the back of the net 41 times.

This matchup is very likely to hit the Over.
