Wolves v West Ham – Home Win – 2.00
Wolves won their last league match in emphatic fashion, beating Leicester City 4-3 with a last minute winner from Diogo Jota. The hosts also beat West Ham 1-0 in the away fixtures at the London Stadium courtesy of Adama Traore’s injury-time winner so they’ll be heading into this clash in full confidence. West Ham on the other side lost 2-0 away to Bournemouth and were on the receiving end of a thumping from AFC Wimbledon who won 4-2 to knock them out of the FA Cup. In the last four clashes both teams have won two apiece but the home side look very good especially at Molineux where they’ve beaten Chelsea and Liverpool, recently.
Southampton v Crystal Palace – Home Win – 2.30
The Saints won their last game at home, beating Everton 2-1. They have been in pretty decent form without a loss in five games. Moreover, they beat Palace on their turf back in September. They also own the head-to-head record in the last five matches with three wins. Palace are in bad form and have lost two in a row in the league. Southampton under Ralph Hasenhuttl are rejuvenated and although this game will have serious implications in the relegation fight, they are favourites.
Real Betis v Espanyol – Home Win – 1.95
Quique Setien’s Betis snatched a draw late in the game in the first leg of this Copa del Rey clash away from home. They have a chance to put this game to bed when they play the second leg on Wednesday. The hosts won both of last season’s league fixtures. However, the visitors have dominated this clash in recent seasons but Betis have been immense the last two seasons playing an attractive brand of football under Setien which propelled them to a sixth place finish last season. Despite one win in five games, Betis always creates a ton of chances and should be comfortable against Espanyol.
Atalanta v Juventus – Both Teams to Score – 1.75
Atalanta produced a phenomenal comeback over the weekend to snatch a 3-3 draw with AS Roma in the Serie A. Last time out, Juventus needed a late equaliser from Cristiano Ronaldo to avoid defeat. Atalanta has scored in their last ten matches in all competitions so it’s hard to see Juventus keeping them at bay for 90 minutes. They also have the best attack in the Serie A. Juventus on the other hand have been in terrific form. They possess one of the deadliest goalscorers in the world in Ronaldo and if he plays in this Coppa Italia tie, Atalanta will have a huge job to keep him quiet.
Inter Milan v Lazio – Over 2.5 Goals – 1.60
Eight of the last ten matches in this fixture has produced Over 2.5 Goals. Inter won the last two fixtures in Serie A 3-0 and 3-2. So it is almost guaranteed that when these two meet, there’ll be goals galore.
