Manchester United ML over Fulham (+120), 8:30 am ET

Has it all come down to this for Erik ten Hag? The word from the wise around Manchester is that the Dutch head coach’s job might be on the line at Fulham. Now those are high stakes but it’s worth believing that the under-fire United coach can buy himself some time by masterminding a road win for the Red Devils. It’s hard to imagine United can be quite as shocking as they were on Sunday in the Manchester derby when City toyed with them in a 3-0 rout. The scoreline flattered United, not City.

Eighth in the standings and already 11 points off the lead, something’s got to change and United should relish getting away from Old Trafford, which is pretty toxic with so much anti-Glazer sentiment filling the place. And Fulham are no great shakes. Three wins in ten, all against sides in the bottom six, this is Ten Hag’s chance to shine and set some records straight.

Manchester City ML over Bournemouth & Over 3.5 (-120), 11:00 am ET

Manchester City are 12-0-0 against Bournemouth over the last six seasons – home and on the road – which suggests there is only one outcome at the Etihad Stadium. City purred back into life last week with a 3-0 win at neighbors and rivals United in the Manchester Derby, and that spells real trouble for Bournemouth, who are down at the bottom of the standings.

Indeed, Bournemouth’s 2-1 win over Burnley last weekend was their first of the season. Only one team – Sheffield United – has scored fewer goals than Bournemouth, who have allowed two goals or more in each of their four road games this season. This probably ends badly for them.

Wolves ML over Sheffield United (+100), 11:00 am ET

Sheffield United have taken some beatings this season, most memorably 8-0 at home by Newcastle, though last weekend’s 5-0 loss at Arsenal wasn’t a lot better. Still without a win and looking increasingly out of their depth, a home shootout with Wolves should offer some hope of finally getting another point on the board – but I don’t expect that to materialize. Wolves have been solid under manager Gary O’Neil, have won more points away than at home and are on a five-match unbeaten run in the EPL, which includes a 2-1 win over Man City.

Everton vs Brighton Over 2.5 (-180), 11:00 am ET

Calling this one isn’t straightforward given Everton have improved over recent weeks – won two in a row – and Brighton have backpedaled – no wins in four. But the hunch is Albion are still the better team – that’s what the standings say – and they are still a major threat who carve out chances. But last year’s doubleheader between them saw Brighton go to Everton and win 4-1 and Everton go to Brighton and win 5-1 — go figure.

What we do know is that Brighton’s games average more goals than any other team in the EPL (4.2) so keep that fact in your head before betting the obvious.
