In the last 3 head-to-head matches, Wolverhampton has outscored Crystal Palace 5-0. Palace gets the Wanderers at home and Wolverhampton isn’t in great form, but we’re still backing the slight favorite.
Soccer Free Pick: Wolverhampton
- Sheffield +2 (-111) / Manchester City -2 (-119)
Man City is 2 points behind rival Man United for first place on the Premier League Standings. City won’t allow Sheffield to take a breath in this match. Expect the Sky Blues to cruise to a 3 goal victory.
Soccer Free Pick: Manchester City
- Manchester United +134 / Arsenal +186
Arsenal’s 0-1 loss to Southampton on January 23 doesn’t inspire confidence. But the Gunners can hang with United. In fact, Arsenal won the last match 1-0. On Saturday, they get Man U on their pitch. The Gunners are the play.

Sunday, January 31st Games
- Burnley +1 ½ (-142) / Chelsea -1 ½ (+108)
There are a lot of questions when the Blues take on Burnley this Sunday. Burnley followed up a 1-0 upset win against Liverpool with a 3-0 victory over Fulham in the English FA Cup. Can Burnley continue dominating opponents? For Chelsea, the big question is whether new coach Thomas Tuchel can turn the Blues into a contender. The guess here is that everyone on Chelsea’s squad will want to impress the new manager.
Soccer Free Pick: Chelsea
- Leeds +269 / Leicester City -129
Don’t look now but Leicester is 2 points behind United and tied with Man City for second place on the Premier League Standings. Leicester City should have no trouble beating Leeds, a team that has lost 3 in a row. If the odds deteriorate, consider Leicester on the handicap.
Soccer Free Pick: Leicester City
- Liverpool -135 / West Ham +323
We’d play Liverpool on the bounce back, but the Reds have all sorts of issues. When a team like Pool stops dominating, it often requires a ton of changes to get them back on track. West Ham United has won 5 in a row. They’re dominating opponents. Give the home team the nod.
Soccer Free Pick: West Ham
- Tottenham +104 / Brighton & Hove +224
A Hotspur victory when they face B&H on Sunday is far from a sure thing. Tottenham is hot, yes, but they battle Brighton & Hove a few days after a home match against Liverpool. It’s difficult seeing the Hotspur getting up for what many consider an inferior opponent. Also, Brighton & Hove Albion has won a single loss in their last 5. The loss impressed because it was by a goal and it was against Man City.
