*All odds taken 09/20/19
EPL Pick 1: Everton vs. Sheffield United
There’s only two teams in the Premier League with a perfect record over their last six home games, and both are located within a stone’s throw of the River Mersey.
While it’s fairly predictable that Liverpool would be one of them, given the red-hot form the Reds have been in of late, the fact that their city neighbours are the other is perhaps a little surprising.

It’s very much a night-and-day scenario for the Toffees, who have scored 13 while conceding just two in their last six games at Goodison Park. Yet they have picked up just three points from their last six away games.
Things look even better for Everton when you consider that the recently promoted Sheffield United haven’t won in their last 12 away matches in the Premier League.
Pick: Everton (-150)
EPL Pick 2: West Ham United vs. Manchester United
While Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be relieved to have seen his team deliver back-to-back wins for the first time since March with Thursday’s Europa League victory, he will be less impressed with his team’s form away from Old Trafford.

The Red Devils haven’t managed to pick up an away win in the Premier League since their 3-1 victory at Crystal Palace on February 27. They’ve managed just three draws and three losses from their six road games since, scoring four goals and conceding 11.
In fact, the only Premier League side with a worse run of away form over their last six games is Tottenham, who have mustered just two points over the same time frame.
Pick: Draw (+265)
EPL Pick 3: Newcastle United vs. Brighton
Steve Bruce is still waiting for his first victory as Newcastle manager, and Saturday’s fixture against Brighton looks set to offer him a breakthrough.
However, the Magpies will have the weight of history against them, as they have never won a top-flight match against Brighton, with two draws and two losses from the teams’ four meetings in the Premier League.

And goals will likely be at a premium too, with those four games producing just four goals, with neither team scoring more than once.
Still, Newcastle could well have Andy Carroll make his first appearance for the club in nine years, which would be exactly the kind of shot in the arm the team needs after its poor start to the season.
And Brighton appear to be ripe for the taking, with the Seagulls having won just one of their last 14 Premier League games, and having failed to score in eight of those contests.
Pick: Newcastle (+145)
Let's have fun and keep it civil.
