A parlay of three EPL selections can land a tasty profit for bettors paying +458.

Manchester City -1 vs. Newcastle -278

Manchester City should be a lock despite Pep Guardiola’s side somehow suffering a shock 1-0 loss at Southampton on Sunday when they created and missed several opportunities.

On expected goals, City was dominant, and Guardiola will surely be desperate to make sure that result is quickly forgotten.

The Citizens have won their three HOME matches since the EPL resumed, and they have done so with a shutout on every occasion, beating Arsenal 3-0, Burnley 5-0, and champions Liverpool 4-0 at the Etihad. 

Back them to dominate from the first whistle, and bettors should read little into Newcastle’s form since coming out of lockdown. The wins over Sheffield United (3-0) and away at Bournemouth (4-1) cannot be compared to this much more difficult test. 

Steve Bruce’s travelers were beaten 2-0 by City just over a week ago at home in the FA Cup quarter-final, and the favorites can comfortably cover the one-goal spread.

Sheffield United or tie (double chance) vs. Wolves -150

This could be a tough game for the favorites given they are only four points ahead of Sheffield United in the EPL standings. Bramall Lane may not be a happy hunting ground for a Wolves side hungry to grab a place in next season’s Uefa Champions League.

The Blades initially suffered after the restart but bounced back with a superb win over Tottenham and backed that up with a tie at Turf Moor against Burnley.

Wolves have had a great season, but the 2-0 defeat to Arsenal suggests the hectic schedule could be catching up with Nuno’s small squad.

United have lost just one of their last eight games at home – and that was 1-0 against Manchester City – so they will be tough to beat. Get with them on the win or tie double chance.

West Ham Moneyline vs. Burnley  +100

West Ham still need points to avoid relegation, and their greater desire for the win can carry them to victory over Burnley at the London Stadium.

The Hammers claimed a sensational 3-2 win over Chelsea the last time they played at a stadium that hosted the 2012 Olympics but has otherwise struggled to match the same entertainment since it was converted to a soccer arena.

West Ham did claim a spirited 2-2 tie on the road at Newcastle on Sunday and can take advantage of a Burnley side stuck in midtable in the EPL standings.
