    Soccer Betting: Mounting injuries and news of managerial changes rule the English media, as we enter round 13 of the Barclay's Premier League campaign this weekend. After another round of international duty, the list of players who picked up knocks grew to greater heights, so we will do our best to inform you of the recent reports. Only two points separate the top-four clubs in the table, as Manchester City and Arsenal currently remain in a tie atop the league table entering the round.

    Eight matches make up theSaturdaydocket, with our featured match of the weekend comingon Sundayat White Hart Lane, for the match between Tottenham and West Ham. Tottenham's Erik Lamela joined the list of injured players this week, after the Argentinian national came off the pitch with 10 minutes remaining in their match with Brazil this week.

    West Ham has also been dealing with absences to a handful of their regulars, although they have remained as one of the best away clubs in the league this campaign.

    Let's cover our bases and dot our i's and cross our t's for the 13th round of the Premier League campaign.

    Saturday November 21- 8 Matches

    Watford vs Manchester United

    3-Way: 1: Watford +355 Home ; X: +240 Draw ; 2: Man U -110 Away

    Spread: Watford +0.5 -110 ; Man U -0.5 -110

    Total 2: Over -140 ; Under +120

    Analysis and Prediction:

    The list of Manchester United injuries grew over the international break, as Michael Carrick is likely out for a spell after sustaining ligament damage in his ankle. Man U are already without a handful of players who have missed significant time this campaign.

    Watford had their two-match win streak snapped last time out against Leicester, but the newly promoted club has certainly held their own thus far with their 4 - 4 - 4 record.

    Man U has not allowed a goal in four straight outings, although they have to settle for two draws in that stretch because of their own goal scoring inefficiencies.

    At +120, we do not see the two goals coming that would crash a play on this total, so the Under 2 is the option we choose to suggest.

    Chelsea vs Norwich City

    3-Way: 1: Chelsea -225 Home ; X: +365 Draw ; 2: Norwich +650 Away

    Spread: Chelsea -1 - 135 ; Norwich +1 +115

    Total 2.5: Over-135 ; Under +115

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Naturally the line setters keep expecting Chelsea to finally figure it all out, and get back to being the dominant club that were expected to compete for a consecutive title this year.

    We are not as convinced that even with a newly promoted club at home, that they will be able to just fix the issues in place at the moment.

    We are suggesting a play on this total as well, expecting a 2 - 1 affair that will help us cash the Over 2.5 ticket at -135, although we certainly understand that the juice on the play does not exactly scream with value.

    Everton vs Aston Villa

    3-Way: 1: Everton -180 Home ; X: +310 Draw ; 2: Villa +550 Away

    Spread: Everton -1 -105 ; Villa +1 -115

    Total 2.5: Over -120 ; Under +100

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Villa's Jordan Amavi has been shut down for the season, as the French U-21 standout left-back landed awkwardly in his match with Northern Ireland over the international break. That leaves Amavi and Jores Okore off the back-line for Villa, while Rudy Gestede, Gabriel Agbonlahor, Ashley Westwood and Gary Gardner are also questionable or doubtful for Remi Garde's decision-making process.

    Everton also has a long list of injured players, making this match a tough one to figure out since we are seeing both managers mix and match players variating lineups from week to week.

    At even money, we offer this Under 2.5, expecting some challenges on the offensive side of the ball for both clubs.

    Newcastle vs Leicester City

    3-Way: 1: Newcastle +175 Home ; X: +250 Draw ; 2: Leicester +155 Away

    Spread: Newcastle Pk +100 ; Leicester Pk -120

    Total 3: Over +115 ; Under -135

    Analysis and Prediction:

    How many times have we just blatantly come out and offered a Leicester total to our loyal readers here at BetDSI?

    It almost makes me feel bad that we missed the last two rounds of action around Europe, since we again saw the Leicester total get smashed the last two times out.

    Newcastle is not about to make us change our decision towards this total, so let's just throw ourselves out on that limb again, and offer the Over 3 at a lovely +115.

    Southampton vs Stoke City

    3-Way: 1: Southampton -175 Home ; X: +300 Draw ; 2:Stoke +525 Away

    Spread: Southampton -1 +100 ; Stoke +1 -120

    Total 2.5: Over +100 ; Under -120

    Bet on the Premier League at BetDSI

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Southampton forward Jay Rodriguez is not coming along as planned, as the English national hasn't been on the pitch for nearly a month. Surgery might be the next option from what we are hearing, so Rodriguez might be missing even more time going forward.

    Southampton has quietly put together an eight-match stretch of positive results between thier Cup and league outings. Since getting knocked out of Europa League qualifying rounds against Midtjylland, Southampton has one loss in their last 10 matches between the two domestic competitions.

    Stoke has been fantastic defensively lately, as manager Mark Hughes has his club playing together, and limiting chances around the box.

    We expect that to continue, so the Under 2.5 option goes on our board this weekend at St. Mary's, with a -120 offer attached to the action.

    Swansea City vs Bournemouth

    3-Way: 1: Swansea -110 Home ; X: +260 Draw ; 2: Bournemouth +315 Away

    Spread: Swansea -0.5 -110 ; Bournemouth +0.5 -110

    Total 2.5: Over -110 ; Under -110

    Analysis and Prediction:

    How do you analyze what has been going on with these two clubs, other than to say how much garbage we are being subjected to when either takes the pitch lately.

    Swansea has one win from their last eight league outings, and were also knocked out of the Cup along the way, while Bournemouth has also gone winless in their last seven outings including their own bowing out of the Cup chase.

    No goals to be found, and no confidence in either club brings us to the Under 2.5 at -110. We expect nothing exciting here, and we simply do not see many highlights being created.

    West Brom vs Arsenal

    3-Way: 1: West Brom +585 Home ; X: +320 Draw ; 2: Arsenal -190 Away

    Spread: West Brom +1 -105 ; Arsenal -1 -115

    Total 2.5: Over -135 ; Under +115

    Bet on the Premier League at BetDSI

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Arsenal as we know are tied atop the Premier League table with Manchester City, but Arsene Wenger is also starting to see the injury report grow on a weekly basis.

    Alexis Sanchez is likely to join Hector Bellerin, Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Aaron Ramsey, Tomas Rosicky, Jack Wilshere, and Danny Welbeck on the absentee list, which naturally would be tough for any manager to navigate.

    After a splendid performance this past week while on international duty, centre-back Laurent Koscielny has been so affected by the Paris terror attacks, that it's being reported he may be rested for Arsenal this weekend to deal with the hardships taken on by his native France. Wenger will decide his availability as the week progresses.

    West Brom is looking to shake off a two-match slide, after two consecutive 1 - 0 wins, but so far when a club from the upper portion of the table plays West Brom, they have not fared well in this campaign.

    We offer the Under 2.5 at +115, not convinced that the line setters know what they are doing in expecting us to pay -135 for this total to go over.

    In disagreement, the Under gets the nod.

    Manchester City vs Liverpool

    3-Way: 1: Man City -155 Home ; X: +300 Draw ; 2: Liverpool +450 Away

    Spread: Man City -0.5 -155 ; Liverpool +0.5 +135

    Total 2.5: Over -120 ; Under +100

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Liverpool have a complete starting lineup within their injury report, as 11 players are listed as questionable or out of the lineup this weekend.

    Daniel Sturridge will not be one of those players on the bench this weekend, however, as he has announced he is a go this weekend for the road trip to Etihad Stadium to take on the league leaders.

    James Milner and Jordon Ibe returned to training this week after opting out of international duty this past week to concentrate on club over country.

    Jurgen Klopp will still be without five defensive players, although Manchester City is dealing with similar injury problems.

    Man City's Vincent Kompany, Wilfried Bony, Sergio Aguero, David Silvaand Pablo Zabaleta are all likely appearing in the dugout or in the crowd this weekend.

    The only hope Liverpool has is to expect Coutinho to score, because there is no other present player on this roster who is coming out in aid on offense, so we will just toss this Under 2.5 at +100 on the board here.

    1 - 1 seems like a perfect prediction to make, although the draw price is certainly worth chasing if that is our assumption, but the total will be enough to put action on.

    Sunday November 22- 1 Match

    Featured Match Tottenham vs West Ham United

    3-Way 1x2 Lines:

    Tottenham -185

    West Ham +525

    Draw +330

    Spread:

    Tottenham -1 -110

    West Ham +1 -110

    Total 3:

    Over +115

    Under -135

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Tottenham will be without Lamela as mentioned in the intro, while three other midfielders are expected to out of the mix for Mauricio Pochettino's side.

    The Hotspur are one of two remaining clubs to have not suffered a home defeat this year, along with Manchester United.

    Tottenham lost on the opening weekend of the campaign to Manchester United by a 1 - 0 scoreline, and their only two losses over their last 16 outings have come in the domestic cup, and in their Europa League campaign.

    West Ham finally picked up their first away loss of the campaign, after starting the road portion of the year with four wins and a draw from their first five outings away from home.

    This is another situation where the line setters have dropped the ball, because offering a +115 on the expectation of at least three goals is not even close to an issue for us.

    If a 2 - 1 result gives us our money back, and we just need that fourth goal to come to cash a +115 ticket outright, than we can handle that type of option for this match at White Hart Lane.

    Monday November 23- 1 Match

    Bet on the Premier League at BetDSI

    Crystal Palace vs Sunderland

    3-Way: 1: C. Palace -175 Home ; X: +305 Draw ; 2: Sunderland +525 Away

    Spread: C. Palace -1 -105 ; Sunderland +1 -115

    Total 2.5: Over -110 ; Under -110

    Analysis and Prediction:

    This a perfect way to end the 13th round of the Premier League campaign, because again we say that the line setters have overlooked the fact that Sunderland is a complete mess on every level.

    We suggest the -1 handicap on the Palace to take three points in convincing fashion, while also suggesting a play on this total to go Over the 2.5 at -110.

    A 3 - 1 result is a definite possibility, so let's see if our prediction skills are on par this weekend, and finish the week with the two plays on Crystal Palace at -1 and the Over 2.5, with similar lines offered on both plays at -105 and -110.
