Better Premier League Bets

By Matt Pitt

Liverpool (-150) vs. Everton (+400)

Liverpool 

Liverpool take on Everton in the Merseyside Derby this weekend, the longest running top-flight derby in English soccer, and hope to extend their unbeaten run against their local rivals to 14 games.

You have to go back to October 2010 to find the last time Everton triumphed over Liverpool, a 2-0 win courtesy of goals from Tim Cahill and Mikel Arteta. That game took place at Goodison Park. The last time Everton beat Liverpool at Anfield was September 1999.

Liverpool will be without Adam Lallana while Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson are doubtful. 

Both to score 

Everton will have to play without Ramiro Funes Mori, Morgan Schneiderlin, Yannick Bolasie and both James McCarthy and Seamus Coleman for this fixture; the latter two were injured on international duty with Coleman badly breaking his leg.

The red half of Merseyside have scored 61 goals in the league this season, the second most of all 20 teams, and their games have featured 97 goals.

Everton head to Anfield without a win in their previous three away games (Liverpool have won three consecutive home games) so it looks like a Liverpool win is the bet. My money, however, is going on a Liverpool win and both teams to score at +240 because I cannot see Liverpool keeping a clean sheet.

Pick: Liverpool to win and both teams to score at +240

Arsenal (+205) vs. Manchester City (+125)

Manchester City 

According to the form table, Arsenal are the 16th best team in the Premier League in the last six games, with two wins and four defeat. Most of that poor form stems from away fixtures so they must be delighted to be on home soil this weekend, even if the visitors are Manchester City.

The Gunners were recently dumped out of the Champions League after losing 10-2 on aggregate to Bayern Munich. This shows that the Arsenal defense struggles against teams who play a free-flowing attacking style, much like Manchester City.

Result 

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech looks set to miss out through injury, as do Lucas Perez, Kieran Gibbs and long-term absentee Santi Carzola.

A win for City could see them climb to second in the table. City are unbeaten in seven games and have won their previous three away fixtures.

Raheem Sterling and Kevin de Bruyne are slight doubts for City but they should still have enough attacking prowess to return to Manchester with all three points. 

Pick: Manchester City to win at +125

The Oscars: Nomadland The Pick Of The Flicks

Making Oscars 2021 picks isn't like wagering on a sporting event. While certainly there is the so-called Oscar buzz that's generated around certain films, the decision on which movie, director or actor gains the Academy Award is solely based on a secret ballot held by the members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. There are no past performances to assess, so going with an underdog isn't necessarily a bad strategy.
