Liverpool Likely Done and Dusted in Title Race
Are Arsenal Serious Title Contenders?
Given their up and down form last season, Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal have been a hugely pleasant surprise in 2022-23. They lead the Premier League so far but Manchester City are hot on their heels. City head to Anfield to take on a struggling Liverpool in what should be the match of the week. Manchester United vs. Newcastle is also a much-anticipated matchup. Let’s take a look at the Premier League fixtures odds from Matchday 11’s best games.
Games of the Week:
Tottenham vs Everton:
They’re not getting too much buzz but Tottenham have what it takes to be in the title race. Antonio Conte has an exciting group of attackers but he’s yet to get the best out of them this season. They eked out a win over Brighton, 1-0, last weekend on a Harry Kane goal. Now, Spurs face Everton in front of their home fans on Saturday.
Everton are tied for the best defensive record in the league this season, conceding just nine goals. They nearly went toe-to-toe with Manchester United but fell 2-1 last Sunday. Spurs are sizable favorites, at -210 odds. They’re also favored to cover the one-goal spread, at -125 odds. One of the best Premier League betting tips this season– been betting the under in Everton games. Toffees’ matches have averaged just 1.89 goals this season.
The over/under goal total for this match is 2½ and the over is getting more love, at -130 odds. Tottenham do have reigning golden boot winner Heung-Min Son, however, they’ve scored just twice in their last two matches. Everton are looking more like a mid-table side than relegation candidates and could keep this competitive. Alex Iwobi is going through a renaissance as a central midfielder rather than a winger.
Manchester United vs Newcastle United:
There’s a lot of intrigue in this match. Both Manchester United and Newcastle United have overhauled their squads in the past year and seem to match up well. They drew 1-1 when they last played and this will be Erik ten Hag’s first game vs. Newcastle. The Premier League fixtures odds give the Red Devils slightly better than even odds to win, at -105.
Newcastle will be hoping record signing Alexander Isak recovers from a thigh injury in time to start up front – he’s been out since the international break. The visitors are priced at +270 odds to win but haven’t won at Old Trafford since 2013. They have won 5-1 and 4-1 in their last two matches, though and are unbeaten in their last four matches. Miguel Almiron has often been criticized for his finishing but has scored three in his last two.
Manchester United, on the other hand, have won four of their last five Premier League matches. Neither team has kept a clean sheet in their last three matches, which could make Both Teams to Score a popular bet. Over 2½ goals also shows -140 odds.

Arsenal’s 3-2 win over Liverpool last Sunday could just mean a shift in the Premier League power structure.

Both Arsenal and underdogs Leeds are priced at -110 to cover the one-goal spread.
Liverpool vs Manchester City:
When Liverpool and Manchester City met in the Community Shield in August, it looked like Liverpool would be the team to beat this season. The Reds won 3-1 and sent a message to the rest of the league. Since then, they’ve gained just 10 points from eight matches and are already 13 points behind Manchester City. In a sign of Liverpool’s decline, the Premier League fixtures odds price the Reds as home underdogs vs. City on Sunday.
Liverpool sit at +290 odds to win while City show -115 odds. These teams drew 2-2 twice in the Premier League last season and another draw is listed at +300 odds. Manchester City’s Erling Haaland, who has scored in his last seven EPL matches, is a -140 anytime goalscorer.

However, they can’t seem to keep teams out of the back of their own net. Over three goals for the match is priced at -130 odds and it’s happened in the last five meetings, in all competitions.
