There is a midweek schedule of fixtures in the English Premier League this week which included three fixtures today. However, the Brentford vs Manchester United match has been postponed due to an outbreak of Covid-19 in the United squad. The match will be rearranged at the earliest convenience pending avoiding any further risk.
There is still an opportunity for a Parlay, so here are our expert EPL picks for this three-leg multi bet.
EPL Best Bets – Three-Team Parlay At +577
Aston Villa to win
Man City (-1)
Burnley to win

Norwich vs Aston Villa
Aston Villa can maintain the momentum of the new Steven Gerrard era with a win on the road at Norwich this evening. Three wins from five league meetings is a decent return for the new boss. The only reverses were defeats to Liverpool and Manchester City by one goal. The feel-good factor should continue after the trip to East Anglia.
Norwich is a yo-yo club whose promotion to the Premier League is often followed by an immediate return to the Championship. The bottom club are destined for another relegation to the second tier. Losing at home to Aston Villa will make that outcome closer to reality and Villa are an improving side under Gerrard.
Premier League Pick – Aston Villa to beat Norwich at +125
Manchester City vs Leeds
We can’t ignore Manchester City at home to Leeds tonight but the Moneyline is too short for the Parlay. The alternative is backing the hosts giving up a one-goal start to their opponents from Yorkshire. City have amassed 24 more points than Leeds over 16 fixtures with a better goal difference of 32, an average of two goals per match.
Leeds have won just one in eight road trips, scoring eight goals and conceding 16. They shouldn’t get dragged into the relegation battle as there are several inferior outfits. However, a visit to the Etihad is not the best scenario ahead of the busy holiday program. Avoiding defeat by three goals or more will be a moral victory.
Premier League Pick – Manchester City -1 against Leeds at -239
Burnley vs Watford
Watford looked on track for a first clean sheet in the Premier League this season before conceding two late goals at Brentford to lose 2-1 last Friday evening. That was a shattering blow for a team low on confidence after just two wins in 10 Premier League fixtures and now four successive defeats. The Claudio Ranieri managerial appointment has not had the desired effect.
Burnley are one place in 18th position and two points behind Watford so this fixture is huge in the context of relegation. The hosts have won just one of seven matches at Turf Moor, scoring and conceding eight goals. Even so, home advantage can see them win a low-scoring contest which makes Watford’s plight even more precarious.
Premier League Pick – Burnley to beat Watford at +112
