EPL Matchweek 28 preview

The thrilling 2023/24 Premier League season continues this weekend with a top-of-the-table clash between Liverpool and Manchester City taking centre stage. Here are our EPL betting picks for Matchweek 28.

Manchester United vs Everton

Saturday, March 9 – 12:30pm GMT – Old Trafford

After suffering their second consecutive loss last weekend, Manchester United have now fallen six points behind the fifth-placed Tottenham. Back at home this week, Erik ten Hag’s men need a vast improvement against relegation candidates Everton. With one win from their past 14 games, the odds are stacked against the visitors, but given United’s injury concerns, Everton should still trouble the scorers.

Manchester United / Both teams to score


Bournemouth vs Sheffield United

Saturday, March 9 – 3pm GMT – Vitality Stadium

After their brutal 6-0 defeat to Arsenal on Monday night, the misery continues for Sheffield United. Heading to Bournemouth this weekend, it is hard to see anything changing given the Blades suffered a 3-1 loss in the reverse fixture. Keep an eye on Bournemouth striker Dominic Solanke, who should add to his season tally of 14 goals against this terrible defence.

Crystal Palace vs Luton Town

Saturday, March 9 – 3pm GMT – Selhurst Park

Luton Town head on the road this week in search of vital points against the struggling Crystal Palace. After their fifth successive defeat, Luton are now four points from safety, but a win over Crystal Palace earlier this season should give them confidence. With both sides struggling defensively, expect opportunities at both ends, but in particular watch out for Crystal Palace forward Eberechi Eze after he returned from injury last weekend with a goal.

Eberechi Eze anytime goalscorer


Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Fulham

Saturday, March 9 – 3pm GMT – Molineux Stadium

Coming off consecutive wins against Brighton and Manchester United, Fulham head to the Molineux in hopes of continuing their solid run. Sitting just three points above Fulham, Wolves have been solid recently with three wins in their past four games. Each of the visitors’ past five matches have gone over the total goal line, while the reverse fixture ended 3-2, so we can expect plenty of action at both ends.

Over 2.5 goals


Arsenal vs Brentford

Saturday, March 9 – 5:30pm GMT – Emirates Stadium

With their two title rivals facing each other on Sunday, Arsenal have an excellent chance to put the pressure on with a win over Brentford. The Gunners have scored 24 goals in their past five matches and are on a seven-match winning streak. After missing out in their 6-0 win over Sheffield United on Monday, expect Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka to get back on the scoresheet this weekend.

Aston Villa vs Tottenham Hotspur

Sunday, March 10 – 1pm GMT – Villa Park

With serious top-four implications, this match is destined for action at both ends. Aston Villa have gone over the total goals line in each of their past seven matches, while the visitors have gone over in each of their past nine. On a run of three consecutive wins in this matchup, Villa should be too strong as constant defensive errors continue to plague Tottenham’s season.

Aston Villa / Both teams to score


Brighton & Hove Albion vs Nottingham Forest

Sunday, March 10 – 2pm GMT – American Express Stadium

Having pushed for a top-six position for most of the season, Brighton find themselves in ninth after winning just one of their past five matches. Back at home this week, they are expected to get back to winning ways as they welcome the struggling Nottingham Forest. After their heartbreaking defeat to Liverpool last weekend, Forest now have just one win from their past seven matches and look set for another tough match as their relegation fight continues.

Brighton & Hove Albion to win


West Ham United vs Burnley

Sunday, March 10 – 2pm GMT – London Stadium

After their loss to Bournemouth, Burnley have now gone 10 matches without a win and look set for relegation. Heading to London this weekend, they face an in-form West Ham side coming off consecutive victories. This is an excellent chance for the Hammers to push for the top six, as Burnley have not scored in any of their past three matches.

West Ham to win to nil


Liverpool vs Manchester City

Sunday, March 10 – 3:45pm GMT – Anfield

In the most important match of the Premier League season so far, it’s first versus second as Liverpool host Manchester City. After both sides secured comeback victories last weekend, there is just one point separating the two teams. While City have a largely clean bill of health, Jurgen Klopp’s men have an extensive injury list which may prove costly as both teams come off short breaks due to midweek European ties.

Manchester City to win


Chelsea vs Newcastle United

Monday, March 11 – 8pm GMT – Stamford Bridge

Two of the most inconsistent sides in the competition face off on Monday night as Newcastle United look to keep their European dreams alive at Stamford Bridge. Newcastle should be confident after their 3-0 win over Wolves, although Chelsea have lost just one of their past 12 matches at home. With both sides holding great attacking records this season, expect a shootout.

Over 3.5 goals
