Premier League Best Bets Matchweek 24

Last Updated: Feb 17, 2023

After 23 weeks in the driver’s seat, Arsenal have relinquished their spot at the top of the table to Manchester City after falling 1-3 to the Sky Blues on Wednesday.

Each club are tied at 51 points, with Man City holding the edge in goal differential, 36-to-26.

Meanwhile, Manchester United and Newcastle hold the final spots in the top four, with Tottenham trailing by two points.

Just four points separate sixth through 10th place, with a huge matchup between Brighton and Fulham due to shake things up this weekend.

So what are the best bets for Matchweek 24 in the Premier League? Read on for my picks and predictions below.

Brighton vs Fulham Best Bet

Both Teams to Score (-135) at BetMGM Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Sixth-place Brighton will take on seventh-place Fulham on Saturday at Amex Stadium in my favorite wager of the weekend.

The Seagulls and Cottagers have the highest “Both Teams to Score" percentage in the Premier League, and a matchup against each other is overly likely to carry that same result.

Out of Brighton’s 21 matches, both teams have scored in 13 of them. On the other side, both teams have reached the back of the net in 14 of Fulham’s 23 matches.

The Seagulls have the edge at home, but given past history, I am recommending you place your bet on each club lighting up the scoreboard, making this our EPL pick of the day.

Chelsea vs Southampton Best Bet

Chelsea Cover -1 (+105) at BetMGM Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

UPDATE (2/17 4:30 pm EST): Chelsea will reportedly be without center back Thiago Silva, right back Reece James, left back Marc Cucurella, midfielder Hakim Ziyech, and striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for their match vs Southampton. Be sure to check odds and adjust accordingly.

Graham Potter‘s squad has been struggling of late, but a home match against Southampton may be just what the doctor ordered.

Chelsea showed promise during their 1-0 defeat at the hands of Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, posting eight shots on target and 10 corners. It was miraculous that the Blues did not walk away with at least three goals during the match.

Look for João Félix to find the back of the net in a Chelsea victory at Stamford Bridge against a Saints club that is rooted at the bottom of the table and recently sacked manager Nathan Jones.

Manchester United vs Leicester City Best Bet

Manchester United Win & Over 2.5 Total Goals (+110) at BetMGM Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Can Marcus Rashford be stopped? The 25-year-old has posted the highest expected goals among midfielders (10.49) while reaching the back of the net 12 times this season.

Overall, the Red Devils have collected 38 goals, with 18 of those coming since the restart. Meanwhile, Leicester City have conceded 38.

This matchup is very likely to hit the Over.
