Odds as of Dec 9th at Barstool Sportsbook
The EPL odds for this weekend have a couple of lopsided matches with Man City huge -670 favorites over Norwich and Liverpool heavy -335 favs against Burnley.
Burnley vs Liverpool Prediction
The first 9:00 am kickoff on Sunday is between Burnley and Liverpool at Turf Moor. The Clarets are going into this game with bundles of confidence after three consecutive draws against the likes of Arsenal, Watford and Man United. Moreover, they have taken points off Liverpool in two of their last four H2H encounters.
Regardless, expect a low block from Burnley as they try to hoof the ball up to new striker, Wout Weghorst. Having Thiago in the midfield should help Liverpool mitigate this as his 3.02 shot creating actions per 90 minutes ranks in the 88th percentile of all midfielders.
Furthermore, Liverpool have won six out of their last seven games in all competitions. Klopp has added the services of Mo Salah and Sadio Mane back into the team as they return from AFCON.
Also, with the creative ability of Luis Diaz and Harvey Elliot also being folded into the side, Liverpool should ease by Burnley.
Pick: Liverpool -1.5 (-114)

Newcastle vs Aston Villa Prediction
Next, Newcastle and Aston Villa face off at St. James Park. In a situation like this, it is not even fair to look at H2H results. Aston Villa won the last Premier League match in August, but they were totally different sides.
Newcastle have added likes of Kieran Trippier, Chris Wood and Bruno Guimaraes and there just seems to be an energy brewing around their squad. Not to mention, Allan Saint-Maximin has been in stunning form.

While they are coming off a 3-1 victory against Everton, their counterparts will be looking to pull something back after a draw versus Leeds. Despite the craziness of that game, it is evident what Steven Gerrard is building in Birmingham.
Aston Villa’s left side of Lucas Digne, Jacob Ramsey and Phil Coutinho is simply magical. In fact, Ramsey is scoring 0.25 non-penalty goals per ninety, which is great return for a midfielder.
"I've grown up watching Steven Gerrard. I look at his old clips and take his advice."

With that being said, this match is hard to call one way or the other so I am taking the prop on Saint-Maximin to score.
Pick: Saint-Maximin to score (+285)
Tottenham vs Wolves Prediction
Finally, we have Tottenham vs Wolves in a huge seven versus eight matchup. I think it is fair to say Tottenham are in a state of disarray and inconsistency. They will struggle in this game given that their defense has been quite leaky, conceding an average of two goals in their last four games.

Conversely, Wolves have the second best goals conceded mark in the Premier League at 17. This benefits them greatly, especially if they can score an early goal. The stability of having Conor Coady, Max Kilman and Jose Sa in their defense is a luxury Tottenham simply do not have at the moment.
Looking at their H2H results, Wolves have also taken points off Tottenham twice in their last four Premier League duels. Overall, Wolves may not win three points, but I think there is value in them covering the +0.5 spread.
Pick: Wolves +0.5 (+133)
