There is a full schedule of English Premier League fixtures this weekend, with five matches on Saturday and five matches on Sunday. There are three outstanding home bankers that you could parlay for a decent return. A treble on Liverpool (vs Southampton), Arsenal (vs Newcastle), and Manchester City (vs West Ham) pays +3600. However, we are putting forward some bigger-priced selections for our EPL picks.
Best EPL Bets For Matchday 13
Crystal Palace vs Aston Villa
The Steven Gerrard era at Villa Park began with a home win against Brighton. Two goals in the last six minutes clinched the points for the new manager. However, Brighton enjoyed 63% of the possession but was behind on the shots count. A home win without conceding is a decent start but the value of the form is questionable as Brighton had not won in four EPL fixtures.
Crystal Palace looks like a team that is destined for mid-table safety. They should pick up enough points to avoid any relegation issues. However, they look off the pace in terms of getting in the top six with a chance of European qualification.
Having said that, they are on a solid run of form and not lost at home in six matches. Meanwhile, Villa has the worst away record in the Premier League so we cannot avoid the obvious and make our pick a home win for Palace this Saturday.

Brentford vs Everton
Only four teams have an inferior away record than Everton in the Premier League this season. The Merseyside club is not expected to increase their tally of five points from six matches on their travels to Brentford.
Overall, these are the most out-of-form teams in the league, having both picked up just one point from five matches, but Brentford is preferred with home advantage.
A newly promoted team often starts well in the top division before finding their level. But, Brentford looks good enough to prevent the nightmare of an immediate return to the Championship.
A finishing position between 14 and 17 would be a great achievement for the small outfit from West London. Any win is priceless and Brentford is tipped to pick up maximum points when they play hosts to Everton on Sunday.

Norwich vs Wolves
Norwich has won just two fixtures in the Premier League this season and those two results came in their last two matches. Meanwhile, Wolves are on the periphery of the European qualification spots, and getting into the Europa League is not beyond them.
Wins by 2-1 at home to Southampton and at Brentford have given Norwich’s campaign an air of respectability. However, the 7-0 drubbing at Chelsea last month must still be fresh in the memory.
Wolves had a narrow home win against the in-form West Ham in their last fixture. Also, three wins and a draw over six away matches suggest they have an effective game plan on their travels.
Norwich has picked up four points at home from 18, scoring five goals and conceding 11. Those two wins recent will have increased confidence but Wolves have the ability to secure an away win on Saturday.
