Arsenal F.C. vs. Burnley F.C.

Sunday, January 23, 2022 – 09:00 AM EST at Emirates Stadium

Form, Mentality, Premier League Odds and Trends

  • Burnley had lost at HT/FT in their previous 3 EPL away games
  • Arsenal is unbeaten in 11 of their last 13 home fixtures
  • Burnley had won just 2 of their previous 24 matches in all competitions

Positivity to Return on Home Soil

Life in 2022 has been difficult for Arsenal fans, the month of January has delivered three losses, and a draw without a single goal scored from their previous three meetings. However, Premier League victories inside the Emirates Stadium have rarely evaded the North London club. A visiting Burnley squad currently battling relegation will seem like the romantic bounce-back moment for manager Mikel Arteta.

Gunning for West Hams 4th placed position in the EPL table; the Gunners will be firing at their London rivals with a mere 2-point gap separating the two sides. Having taken 22 points from ten home games this season, the aforementioned task for Arsenal is an achievable feat when owning the third-best home record in the division.

A plethora of postponed fixtures has left Burnley at rock bottom of the Premier League table, and the Clarets have now been absent from action since their embarrassing FA Cup defeat to Huddersfield Town on January the 8th.

More alarmingly, Newcastle recently acquired the services of Burnley's top goalscorer in Chris Wood, a decision that could be detrimental to a squad that has failed to win a game away from home this season.

Final Thoughts| Premier League Matchday 23 Betting Odds and Prediction

Burnley is winless from their previous six games in all competitions, losing four and drawing one. For the downtrend Arsenal are currently riding, the home side has notably won four of their last six EPL meetings and remains unbreakable when under the Emirate lights.

As the betting odds suggest, Arsenal is expected to sail back into the win column this Sunday. But to raise our wagering value, take the home squad to win at halftime/full-time.

Crystal Palace F.C. vs. Liverpool F.C.

Sunday, January 23, 2022 - 09:00 AM EST at Selhurst Park

Form, Mentality, Premier League Odds and Trends

  • Liverpool is undefeated in 40 of their last 42 games in all competitions
  • The last 5 Crystal Palace home games have seen over 2.5 goals
  • Crystal Palace had scored 1 or more goals in their last 10 home games

A Serious Opponent Will Threaten the Gates of the Palace

Despite failing to secure a winning weekend in 2022 thus far, Patrick Vieira and his Crystal Palace squad will be hopeful of keeping their impressive home record intact when welcoming 2nd placed Liverpool.

Palace has lost a mere two fixtures on home turf this term and remains a goal-scoring threat with at least two goals scored from their last four fixtures at Selhurst Park. The home pitch advantage has undoubtedly favored the Eagles this season, but Palace fans won't want to be reminded what happened the last time Liverpool visited.

Liverpool left the grounds of Selhurst Park during the 2020/21 EPL season with an authoritative 7-0 scoreline, and following a successful EFL Cup meeting with Arsenal this past week, confidence is brimming within Jürgen Klopp's squad – despite the absence of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané.

The Reds have continued to deliver positive results without their star strikers, and maintaining a winning record is crucial right now. Allowing Manchester City to further extend the 11-point title gap between themselves and Liverpool could put a dampener on the Anfield faithful's title-chasing hopes.

Final Thoughts| Premier League Matchday 23 Betting Odds and Prediction

We should expect a relentless battle for victory from the visiting side, and although a repeat 7-0 success of last season is highly doubtful, Liverpool knows how to run the routes and score goals at Palace.

The EPL moneyline odds on Liverpool are relatively conservative thanks to Palace's impressive home form, but the value I require is still lacking. For that reason, the price on a Liverpool handicap makes sense, especially when I believe they'll sail to a comfortable win against the lesser talented team.

Crystal Palace vs. Liverpool Score Prediction: Crystal Palace 1 – Liverpool 3

EPL Pick: Liverpool -1 handicap +156 [2.56] [1u wager returns +1.56u of profit] with Everygame
