Today’s EPL Best Bets Explained

Liverpool v Everton – Liverpool to win both halves – 2.28 at PlayUp

It doesn’t take a football expert to work out which way this game is most likely to go. Liverpool continue to go toe-to-toe with Manchester City for the title, with all other teams left well and truly in the dust. 

Everton, on the other hand, continue to endure their worst season since 2003/04, when they were fortunate to avoid relegation with a pitiful final haul of 39 points. 

A couple of clutch injury time goals in recent weeks are effectively the difference between Lampard’s men and the drop zone at the moment and backing Liverpool to dominate both halves looks like good value when compared to the straight win price at 1.19.

Leicester City v Aston Villa – Leicester draw no bet 1.93 at PlayUp

Leicester have only lost once at home in the Premier League since mid-November and even that defeat (against Spurs) was well and truly snatched from the jaws of victory: they were leading 2-1 until the 95th minute. 

Aston Villa have offered very little in recent weeks, with four straight Premier League defeats meaning they are currently in their worst run of form since Steven Gerrard was appointed in November.

The Foxes could still bring home some silverware this season in the UEFA Europa Conference League and their continued involvement in that competition (they play Roma next week in the semi-final first leg) may explain the relatively long price for a home win here. 

Nevertheless, they should have enough to get past Villa at the King Power Stadium so getting the added insurance on offer with draw no bet at 1.93 looks like a solid option.
