Matchweek 26 in the Premier League was successful from a betting perspective.
Brentford and Fulham combined for a 3-2 score as the Bees secured three points, while the Over hit quite easily. Meanwhile, Aston Villa were able to collect the win against Crystal Palace by a score of 1-0.
Unfortunately, we were unable to get a clean sweep due to Arsenal’s surprising struggle against Bournemouth. The Gunners were able to walk away with a last-minute victory on a thrilling goal by Reiss Nelson but fell short of covering the spread.
Let’s dig into the fixtures for Matchweek 27 and determine our best bets.
Premier League Matchweek 27 Predictions
Odds are current as of 9 a.m. ET on Thursday, March 7, and courtesy of BetMGM Sportsbook.
Arsenal vs Fulham Best Bet
Both Teams To Score (-120) | BetMGM Sportsbook
WAGER: 1 Unit
The Gunners have seen 16 of their 26 matches in the Premier League this season hit the Over (2.5 goals), while Fulham games have produced ther same result in 17 of their 26 outings.
In addition, both clubs are coming off matches in which five goals were scored last weekend. Arsenal came back from 2-0 down to secure a 3-2 victory over Bournemouth, while the Cottagers fell 3-2 to Brentford.
This should be a high-scoring affair, so bet on Both Teams To Score (better odds than the Over) in our EPL pick of the day.
Newcastle vs Wolverhampton Best Bet
Newcastle Wins 1:0, 2:0, or 3:0 (+185) | BetMGM Sportsbook
WAGER: 1 Unit
Newcastle will look to rebound from a disappointing loss to Manchester City, and Wolverhampton will provide them with a great opportunity.
While the Wolves have been playing vastly superior football under new manager Julen Lopetegui, the Magpies have lost just one match at home this season under Eddie Howe.
Wolverhampton have scored a league-worst 19 goals this season, whereas Newcastle have conceded a league-best 17 goals.
Look for a clean sheet this weekend.
Crystal Palace vs Manchester City Best Bet
Manchester City Wins & Over 2.5 Combined Goals (-105) | BetMGM Sportsbook
WAGER: 1 Unit
Look for Erling Haaland to continue his historic run in the Premier League after scoring 27 goals over just 25 matches this season.
The last time Manchester City took on Crystal Palace back in August, the Norwegian striker posted a hat trick in a 4-2 victory for City.
I expect to see more goals this weekend when the Eagles host Manchester City at Selhurst Park.
Premier League Matchweek 27 Parlay
- Liverpool Win (vs Bournemouth)
- Brentford Win (vs Everton)
- Manchester United Win (vs Southampton)
- Newcastle Win (vs Wolverhampton)
(+802) | BetMGM Sportsbook
Liverpool are fresh off an impressive 7-0 victory over Manchester United and will look to clear another three points against Bournemouth this weekend. This should be an easy task against a Cherries squad with the worst defensive record in the Premier League.
On the other hand, the Red Devils will look to make a statement following their embarrassing loss, with Southampton being the unlucky club that will incur their wrath.
Brentford have been in top form lately, and I expect Ivan Toney and company to make quick work of Everton while Newcastle takes care of Wolverhampton.
