English Premier League News, Tips & Predictions for Gameweek No 7 – Full Preview

We sincerely hope that you read our Premier League tips and predictions last weekend as most of the results & goalscorers went our way. We nailed the Under 2.5 goals FT picks in four out of five games last weekend, predicting low-scoring affairs in the derby of the round between Chelsea and Manchester City and three more clashes (Everton v Burnley, Southampton v Wolves, and Crystal Palace v Brighton). Our only wrong Under prediction was the North London derby as the Gunners put three past Tottenham at the Emirates.

We also hit West Ham’s win at the Elland Road @ 2.25 odds, while we were impeccable when it comes to goalscorers, successfully predicting the following trio:

  • Michail Antonio to score @ 2.30
  • Jamie Vardy to score @ 2.20
  • Ismaila Sarr to score @ 3.50

We are very much looking forward towards the new weekend and another set of Premier League affairs. As always, we will cover the full round, including all ten games that are on schedule this weekend.
