10 more EPL matches are coming up this weekend and we take a look at the best bets and picks from the fourth round of games

Matchweek 3 in the Premier League brought many surprises.

Leeds United continued their impressive start by upsetting Chelsea 3-nil. Meanwhile, Liverpool is still struggling out of the gate, dropping points at Manchester United and falling to 16th in the table.

What will happen in Matchweek 4? Let’s examine some of my favorite best bets and predictions for this weekend in the Premier League.

All odds and bets are provided courtesy of BetMGM Sportsbook as of Tuesday, Aug. 23 at 3 p.m. ET, unless otherwise noted.

Brentford vs Everton Best Bet

➕ Brentford Wins (+100) at BetMGM Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Brentford scored goals easily during the first three weeks of the Premier League. In fact, the Bees, who have scored eight, are just one goal behind Arsenal and Manchester City for the league lead.

Meanwhile, Everton is fresh off a 1-1 draw against Nottingham Forest following a season where they narrowly avoided relegation.

Back Brentford to pick up the victory at Gtech Community Stadium, while the Toffees remain winless heading into Matchweek 5.

Brighton vs Leeds United Best Bet

➕ Draw No Bet: Leeds Wins (+170) at BetMGM Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Neither Brighton nor Leeds have suffered a defeat this season, but the Whites have been playing inspired football for manager Jesse Marsch.

A draw would not be a surprise, and it is difficult to bet against Graham Potter in a tight match. Still, I am betting on Leeds’ pressure up front, led by Brenden Aaronson, to create scoring opportunities that should be the difference maker.

Be sure to note that this wager recommendation is a Draw No Bet in order to extract value out of Leeds solid form while mitigating our downside risk.

Wolverhampton vs Newcastle Best Bet

➕ Newcastle Wins & Under 3.5 Total Goals (+230) at BetMGM Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Wolverhampton have conceded just three goals through the first three weeks of the Premier League season. Unfortunately, Wolves have scored only one, leaving them in 18th place with one point.

On the other hand, Newcastle sits as the sixth team in the table, having just battled Manchester City to a 3-3 draw this past weekend.

Expect Newcastle to pick up three points on the road at Molineux Stadium in a low scoring affair.

Manchester City vs Crystal Palace Best Bet

➕ Manchester City Wins & Over 3.5 Total Goals (+110) at BetMGM Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Palace striker Wilfried Zaha has been difficult to stop this season, while Machester City has proven to be vulnerable early in the season.

This is not to suggest that the Sky Blues will walk away without three points. In fact, I predict a comfortable win for Manchester City. However, I do expect Crystal Palace to leave a mark and help take the match total Over 3.5 goals.
