We kind of cleaned up over the weekend, which has been something of a theme for us in the Premier League this season.
Saturday was especially successful, as nailing all three draws took our net profits on the season to a very healthy $2,225.
Are you content? I’m not. Let’s turn those winnings into more winnings.

Watford (+137) at Aston Villa (+187), Draw (+260)
The term “six-pointer” can be a bit overused, but this match is the very definition of it. Aston Villa currently occupy 18th place – the last relegation spot – just one point back of resurgent Watford. A victory would see Villa climb out of the bottom three.
However, Dean Smith’s side has struggled at Villa Park of late, losing four of its last six home games. Those matches came against quite difficult competition, but Villa’s biggest issue has been the lack of a true striker up top – the team creates chances but just can’t finish them. Villa will put forth a strong effort as they look to end Watford’s six-match unbeaten run in the league, but the Hornets are in excellent form and should be able to leave Birmingham with a point that keeps them out of the drop zone.
Pick: Draw (+260)
Southampton (+162) at Crystal Palace (+175), Draw (+225)
This match won’t garner much attention, but it should be one of the more fascinating midweek clashes. Palace are unbeaten in five straight games and have lost just one of their last 10 league matches, while Southampton have won three in a row away from home and have lost just one of six overall.
Roy Hodgson is dealing with a laundry list of injuries, but he’s done really well to navigate Palace through what could have become a rough patch. The Eagles have proven to be an incredibly tough out, but the Saints have belief coursing through their side. It’s hard to envision either team losing this match, which leaves a draw between two evenly matched sides as the likeliest outcome.
Pick: Draw (+225)
Arsenal (+350) at Chelsea (-130), Draw (+280)
Results have been a mixed bag of late for Chelsea, especially at home where three of their last five league matches ended in defeat. But if you watched Arsenal play on Saturday without leading scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who remains suspended, it’s hard to have any confidence that they can waltz into Stamford Bridge and leave with any points.
The Gunners didn’t offer anything going forward without Aubameyang, and Alexandre Lacazette hasn’t scored an away goal in the league in nearly a full calendar year. While the Blues have endured their own issues of late, they should still have too much for Arsenal, who’ve lost six of their last seven league trips to Stamford Bridge.
Pick: Chelsea (-130)
Liverpool (-167) at Wolverhampton (+500), Draw (+290)
Are Liverpool going to win out this season? The Reds extended their winning run over the weekend to 13 successive league matches, and they’ve kept a clean sheet in each of their last seven. Overall, they’ve claimed 64 of a possible 66 points this season, which makes them essentially unstoppable. So, why would anyone bet against Liverpool right now?
Well, strange things tend to happen at Molineux. Wolves are no strangers to big upsets on home soil, where they beat Manchester City just a few weeks ago. Last season, they tied City and beat all of Chelsea, Arsenal, and Manchester United at Molineux. They lost to the Reds but beat them 2-1 in the FA Cup.
Sooner or later, Liverpool’s winning run is going to end – the Premier League is just too demanding. This feels like a good spot for Wolves to steal a vital point as they chase a top-four finish.
Pick: Draw (+290)
