Tottenham Hotspur FC vs. Norwich City FC

Sunday, December 05, 2021 – 09:00 AM EST at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Form, Mentality, Premier League Odds and Trends

⦁ Tottenham have recorded 3 consecutive home victories
⦁ Tottenham are undefeated in 5 of their last 6 home fixtures
⦁ Norwich scores an average of 0.43 goals per game

Main Event of the Weekend

Antonio Conte has evidently found a comfortable setting at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium following a routine 2-0 victory over Brentford last time out. This marked the third consecutive win for Spurs on home turf, with their newly appointed manager remaining undefeated at home since his arrival.

European success hasn't been fruitful this term. Still, with seven points taken from a possible nine since Conte's arrival, he's propelled the Lilywhites lackluster early-season outings to a 6th placed position in the EPL table.

Norwich City's season has gone from bad to better, with Dean Smith making a clear impact on the Canaries' recent success. Now, when I say success, take that statement very lightly. Yes, Norwich has managed to claim six points and remain undefeated in their previous four games, but they haven't become world beaters by any means.

Failing to defeat a 10-man Newcastle side last time out is a cause for concern, and with a trip to the capital against one of the division's most talented squads, we shouldn't expect this unbeaten streak to remain.

Final Thoughts | Premier League Betting Picks

Norwich is undoubtedly rejuvenated under the wings of Dean Smith. Still, we shouldn't harbor hopes of this basement-dwelling team to continue collecting points, especially when faced with teams inside the top six of the Premier League.

I expect Tottenham to prove they're the dominant squad and remind EPL fans why Norwich will be in a relegation battle all season long.

The betting odds are obviously favoring Tottenham, but the likes of Moura, Son, and Kane should have enough firepower to extend their team's lead beyond a 1-goal margin.

Tottenham vs. Norwich City Score Prediction: Tottenham 3 – Norwich 0

Aston Villa FC vs. Leicester City FC

Sunday, December 05, 2021 - 11:30 AM EST at Villa Park

Form, Mentality, Premier League Odds and Trends

⦁ Villa has scored at least 1 goal in their previous 8 home fixtures
⦁ Villa concedes an average of 1.50 goals in all competitions
⦁ Both teams have scored in Leicester's last 14 EPL away games
⦁ Leicester has avoided defeat in 10 of their previous 12 matches

Goals Expected in West Midlands Derby

Steven Gerrard's side returned to Villa Park following a 2-1 defeat to Manchester City on Wednesday, but Gerrard's first loss since his arrival is hardly an embarrassing one – if anything, positives can be taken from losing by a small margin.

A five-game losing streak was broken when Gerrard arrived at Villa Park, but the Villains' goal-scoring efforts haven't lacked with or without the former Liverpool legend's arrival. Villa has scored in every fixture on home soil this term, and with Leicester providing a similar goal-scoring record, we should expect fireworks from this rivalry fixture.

Leicester is riding a streak of high-scoring encounters and a three-game undefeated run. With 47 goals scored in Leicester's 14 EPL fixtures this season, a low scoring affair in Birmingham on Sunday would be a shocking result.

Both teams are in good form, and local derby bragging rights are on the line, so dictating a winner isn't a simple task, hence the valuable money line odds on either side.

Final Thoughts | Premier League Matchday 15 Betting Picks

I would suggest making a wager on the goal-scoring market; both teams to score or over 2.5 goals are certainly viable plays. However, I'm looking to find some serious value in this encounter, which I believe can be found in the draw market.

It isn't the prettiest or most favorable betting prediction, but with goals expected and two in-form squads, I expect the scoreline to be level after 90 minutes.

Aston Villa vs. Leicester Score Prediction: Aston Villa 2 – Leicester 2
