We went 2/3 in our picks and 2/3 in our props last week so let’s keep building our bank with our best soccer picks and props on offer during Premier League Matchday 25, which is packed with a few blockbusters!
Liverpool vs Everton
Saturday, 20th February, 12:30pm (ET)
There’s hardly a bigger fixture on the calendar, with these two hated rivals clashing for another edition of the Merseyside Derby.
The fixture is usually a classic regardless of where the teams are situated on the table, and there is added spice this time around with the closeness of the two sides, with Liverpool currently 6th and Everton breathing down their neck in 7th position.
Liverpool have lost their past three league games in a horror patch of form that has torpedoed their chances of a title defence, though they won 0-2 away from home against RB Leipzig in the Champions League during the week.
⚽ 53' Mohamed Salah
⚽ 58' Sadio Mane
Two gifts from Leipzig, and Liverpool have two away goals.

Everton’s form has also been less than perfect, with an FA Cup win vs Tottenham sandwiched between losses to lowly sides Newcastle and Fulham.
You can sometimes throw form completely out of the window when these two sides meet, and it’s shaping up to be a cracking contest between two up and down outfits that won’t give an inch to each other.
EPL Prediction: Draw +340
Best Prop: Draw and Both to Score +460
West Ham vs Tottenham
Sunday, 21st February, 7:00am (ET)
This looks to be an cracking London Derby, with 5th placed West Ham playing host to 9th placed Tottenham at the London Stadium.
West Ham has been one of the surprise packets of the season, and have held their form, collecting 10 of a possible 15 points in their last five fixtures.
The Hammers have been hitting sides hard on the counter, with January acquisition Jesse Lingard leading the charge, as per the below video. They may be helped with Michail Antonio also a possibility to return from injury for this game.

Spurs have had a tough run of fixtures, with recent losses to Liverpool, Chelsea, Everton, and Manchester City. However, their task doesn’t get any easier here against 5th placed West Ham, especially with a trip to Wolfsberg in the Europa League to contend with.
EPL Prediction: West Ham +160
Best Prop: West Ham to Win 2-1, 3-1, or 4-1 +550
Arsenal vs Manchester City
Sunday, 21st February, 11:30am (ET)
We say it every week, but Manchester City are straight up scary at the moment, with The Citizens currently runaway 10-point league leaders, with no signs of slowing down.
They took care of Everton 1-3 away from home, with star man Kevin De Bruyne coming on for the last 10 minutes, and Sergio Aguero taking his place on the bench, as both return from long injury layoffs. It’s hardly fair, is it?
Classic Riyad Mahrez 🚀
No Manchester City player has scored more Premier League goals from outside the box since the start of last season.

The Gunners, on the other hand, are floundering in 10th position in the Premier League, but are planning for the future by pumping games into promising youngsters Bukayo Saka, Martin Ødegaard, and Emile Smith-Rowe.
They have lost their past seven league games against Manchester City, and have failed to trouble the scorers in their last three home games against them.
This trend shows no sign of stopping against a dominant Manchester City side, who should win, and win well on their current form.
EPL Prediction: Manchester City -209
Best Prop: Manchester City -1 +140
