EPL 2022/23 Matchweek 9 best bets – Sunday & Monday games

EPL betting tips

After seven matches this Saturday, we will have two more English Premier League games on Sunday and another one on Monday to round out Matchweek 9. These are BettingPlanet’s top picks for those fixtures.

Manchester City vs Manchester United

This is set up to be a great contest. Manchester City are the reigning Premier League champions and are once again prepared to go on a title run. Manchester United have struggled in recent seasons, but this year, with a new coach, there are a lot of reasons for optimism. While City deserve to be the favorites, these teams are not as far apart as the line suggests. Betting against City is a scary proposition, but we expect Manchester United to rise to the occasion and keep this game close.

United have had a tumultuous start to the season but appear to have figured something out. After losing their first two games of the Premier League campaign, United started benching Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Maguire. In turn, they have won their last four games. We do not believe this is a facade. The Red Devils have truly turned the corner and Ronaldo’s absence has opened up space for their young wingers. Guys like Jadon Sancho and Antony have made a huge impact in United’s recent games and they should once again create a bunch of opportunities in this game.

For this bet to hit, we only need United to not lose by two or more. They should be able to do just enough defensively to cover this spread and get a result in City’s home stadium.

Manchester United +1.5


Leeds United vs Aston Villa

These are two evenly matched teams. Leeds sit in 11th place with eight points through their first six matches. Aston Villa have stumbled out of the gate and are in 15th with seven points in seven games. Leeds were projected to be a relegation candidate, but they have been impressive to this point. Part of that success is due to their dominance at home. In this Premier League season, they have garnered seven points out of a possible nine in their three home matches. The Leeds fans truly make a difference, and that should be enough to lift them over Villa in this contest.

Villa haven’t been very impressive this season. They were projected to be a midtable team, and while that is still possible, they have played like a relegation contender. Of course, there is a lot of season left, but Villa need to figure out how to win away from home. So far, they have played three away matches and lost all of them. Two of those losses came against Bournemouth and Crystal Palace. Leeds are better than those teams and they should grab a win at Elland Road.

Leeds United to win


Leicester City vs Nottingham Forest

Even though these two teams have one win between them, this match should be pretty entertaining. Leicester have a league-worst defense that has conceded 22 times through seven games, while Nottingham Forest have let in 17 goals in the same number of outings. As such, this is set up to be a game of defensive miscues. Leicester should be able to take advantage of that, and considering they have a strong attack, they may score three or more goals. James Maddison has been their most consistent attacking weapon this year, scoring three goals in his six matches. Against a hapless Forest defense, Maddison should be flushed with goalscoring opportunities. At +200 with Bovada to score at any time, the value is too good to pass on.
