WE are just shy of three months into the 2016/17 Premier League campaign, but it already looks like two blue teams and two red sides are the only four capable of winning this season’s title.
Manchester City ($2.25 at Sportsbet.com.au) bounced back in a huge way after a disappointing month, Liverpool ($4.50 at WilliamHill.com.au) is in unbelievable touch right now; while the two most famous London teams in the form of Chelsea ($7 at Crownbet.com.au) and Arsenal ($6.50 at Sportsbet.com.au) continue to keep the pressure on.
That quartet are the only four sides under double figures at all the online bookmakers, and if Arsenal can defeat Tottenham ($17 at Sportsbet.com.au for the EPL title) the four maybe the only teams under $20 by the end of the game week.
Enough of the futures talk though, let’s get stuck into the multi.
All odds for the tenth week of the Premier League season were provided by Sportsbet.com.au.
New customers can get their first bet at Sportsbet matched up to the value of $501.
Selections for the week 11 EPL multi:
Bournemouth to defeat Sunderland ($1.61)
Manchester City to win against Middlesbrough ($1.25)
Chelsea to beat Everton ($1.57)
Liverpool to defeat Watford ($1.25)
Bournemouth vs. Sunderland
Sunday, November 6 from 2am AEDST Dean Court, Bournemouth
First leg of the multi sees the struggling Black Cats heading to the picturesque coastal town of Bournemouth to face the Cherries.
The hosts were surprise losers last week, going down to strugglers Middlesbrough 2-0. Previous to the defeat they were undefeated in their last five Premier League outings.
Sunderland is the worst team in the league by some margin and have conceded seven goals in their last three games.
Nothing short of a miracle will save both David Moyes’ job and their Premier League survival.
Betting against Sunderland is one of the banker bets week-to-week in the Premier League and we believe Bournemouth should have no issues sweeping aside the Black Cats to kick off our multi.
Tip: Bournemouth to win – $1.61
Manchester City vs. Middlesbrough
Sunday, November 6 from 2am AEDST, Etihad Stadium, Manchester
One of the Premier League’s powerhouses in Manchester City host Middlesbrough in the second, and strongest leg of our multi.
After a five game winless streak across all competitions Pep Guardiola’s men bounced back in emphatic style last weekend, hammering West Brom 4-0 away from home.
The Sky Blues will also take an enormous amount of confidence from their 3-1 win over Barcelona in Wednesday night’s Champions League fixture.
Middlesbrough bring in fantastic form after defeating the Cherries last week, a win that rekindled their stalled momentum.
A win away from home against the Sky Blues is unlikely though and we are backing Pep’s men to get the job done for our second leg.
Chelsea vs. Everton
Sunday, November 6 from 4.30am AEDST, Stamford Bridge, London
It is an all blue affair in the English capital for the third leg of our multi as Chelsea and Everton lock horns at the Bridge.
Chelsea recorded a strong 2-0 win away from home against Southampton last week, allaying fears from the fans that there would be a letdown after their wonderful 4-0 win against Manchester United the weekend prior.
Everton bounced back after a disappointing three weeks of football to register a strong 2-0 win against West Ham.
Romelu Lukaku continued his run of scoring in the league and is currently one of only three players in the league under single figures for the scoring title ($9.50 at Sportsbet.com.au).
Cheslea has been one of the form teams of the competition over the last month and while Everton’s win against West Ham was impressive, the Blues are a much tougher proposition – especially at home.
We are backing the Blues to keep our multi rolling on.
Tip: Chelsea to win – $1.57
Liverpool vs. Watford
Monday, November 7 from 1.15am AEDST, Anfield, Liverpool
Last leg of the multi sees the title contending Reds hosting the probable relegation embattled Watford on Monday morning.
The Reds have been sensational this season. Their 2-1 win last week at West Brom was exactly the type of game they would have dropped last campaign and is precisely the reason why they are rated as the real deal this season.
Liverpool is the $4.50 second favourite for the Premier League title at WilliamHill.com.au.
Despite being one of the early relegation favourites with all the bookies Watford have defied the odds so far this season. They are unbeaten in the last month which includes two victories.
We are not convinced the Hornets have what it takes to sustain this great run, and we feel the wheels will fall off this weekend.
Liverpool should be able to swat the Hornets away to extend their winning run to two on the trot and most importantly bring our multi home in style.
