Tottenham ML (-115)
Newcastle ML (+200)
Manchester United ML and over 2.5 goals (-115)
Manchester City ML and over 2.5 goals (-145)
Tottenham ML (-115) over Leeds, 7:30 am ET
Tottenham produced its best performance of the season when Harry Kane’s goal in injury-time earned a 3-2 win at Manchester City last Saturday, but that was not built upon and a 1-0 defeat was suffered at struggling Burnley.
The 1-0 loss at Turf Moor was Spurs’ fourth in five league outings, but Antonio Conte’s side should have far too much for Leeds, a team in the thick of the relegation battle.
Injuries have not helped Marcelo Bielsa’s team but a 6-0 thrashing at Liverpool on Wednesday will have harmed already low confidence levels and the Whites conceded four times in their last home matchup with Manchester United.
That is four games in a row that the team has conceded three goals and strikers of the quality of Kane and Heung-Min Son should flourish in Saturday’s early action.
Newcastle ML (+200) over Brentford, 10:00 am ET
Burnley’s win over Tottenham has left a few teams, including Leeds, looking nervous over their shoulders, and another one getting nervous is Brentford.
The Bees face a crucial game against Newcastle and are up against it with the visiting Magpies unbeaten in their last six Premier League matches.
Some good recruitment in January means Eddie Howe’s team looks well placed to avoid the dreaded drop and this is a good chance to stretch away from the danger zone.
Brentford has not won any of its last seven league match-ups and has lost eight of its last ten, so the London team looks vulnerable in this one.
Manchester United ML and over 2.5 goals (-115) over Watford, 10:00 am ET
Watford is in danger of being stranded in the bottom three and a 4-1 home loss to Crystal Palace on Wednesday showed just how much improvement is needed to avoid an immediate return to the Championship.
New manager Roy Hodgson has a massive task on his hands and it could get even tougher after a trip to Manchester United.
The Hornets won their last away game at Aston Villa, but this looks a lot tougher.
United was boosted by a late goal that earned a 1-1 tie in the Champions League at Atletico Madrid on Wednesday and won its last two Premier League match-ups against Brighton and Leeds.
Ralf Rangnick’s team is unbeaten in seven and Watford’s defense is so shaky that United can win in style too, so there is likely to be lots of goals.
Manchester City ML and over 2.5 goals (-145) over Everton, 12:30 pm ET
In the final Premier League action of the day, Everton hosts Manchester City with the champions hungry to bounce back after that shock loss to Tottenham.
Everton is now managed by former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard and the team has beaten Brentford 4-1 in the FA Cup and Leeds 3-0 in the league.
But those are two of the worst teams in the league, so don’t read too much into that now the Toffees face the best.
Lampard has overseen defeats to Newcastle and Southampton, admittedly on the road, and his team faces a charged City outfit.
There has been at least three goals in seven of City’s last ten league games, so expect Guardiola’s team to hit back with a barrage of goals.
