Premier League predictions: Jones Knows says Chelsea will drop more points away to Wolves | Football News

Fresh from some midweek winners, Jones Knows takes aim at the Premier League matches this weekend with Chelsea, Man City and Liverpool in action on Sunday.

Any midweek winners for Jones Knows?

  • Aston Villa to win 2-0 vs Norwich at 8/1
  • Antonio Rudiger to have two or more shots vs Everton at 7/4
  • Arsenal to win 2-0 vs West Ham at 9/1
  • Southampton to win five or more corners at 5/4

Wolves vs Chelsea, Sunday 2pm

Chelsea are out to 8/1 with Sky Bet to win the Premier League title. They were 15/8 in November.

To some that might look an attractive price for the Champions League holders who are just four points off the top spot. However, over the past month there have been signs emerging that Thomas Tuchel’s boys are just a level below Manchester City and Liverpool, to the extent now that I’d be very surprised if they don’t finish third.

Tuchel was at a loss to explain how they didn’t comfortably beat Everton on Thursday, calling it a freak result. It’s true they found Jordan Pickford in top form but what worried me was their lack of sustained, quality attacks in the final 20 minutes when they were chasing a winner. It was the same in the 3-2 win over Leeds where two Jorginho penalties got them out of jail. Chelsea are seemingly finding it tough to break through low block defences without the influence and natural goal instincts of Romelu Lukaku.

And, well-organised low blow defences don’t come tighter than Wolves, who could be set to send Tuchel’s frustrations levels off the scale in this one. Bruno Lage’s team have conceded only 14 goals this season – only Chelsea, Man City and Liverpool have shipped fewer.

I can see this game going down a familiar

Monday Night Football odds, spread: Giants vs. Buccaneers picks, NFL predictions from expert on 28-15 roll

Tom Brady and Daniel Jones will lead their respective teams into a primetime showdown on Monday Night Football to close out Week 11. Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are leading the NFC South standings with a 6-3 record and 4-0 mark in their home stadium. Tampa Bay lost its last two games, however, and the Giants enter with improved recent play. New York is 2-1 in the last three games, and the Giants have the rest advantage after a bye in Week 10.

Kickoff is at 8:15 p.m. ET in Tampa Bay. Caesars Sportsbook lists the Buccaneers as 11-point favorites, while the Over-Under, or total number of points Vegas thinks will be scored, is 50 in the latest Giants vs. Buccaneers odds. Before you make any Buccaneers vs. Giants picks and NFL predictions, make sure you see what SportsLine NFL expert R.J. White has to say.

White, a CBS Sports fantasy and gambling editor, ended the 2020 season on an 80-59 run on all NFL picks, returning more than $1,400 during that span. It’s no surprise, as White has cashed huge twice in the world’s most prestigious football handicapping competition, the Las Vegas SuperContest.

In addition, White has gone an astounding 28-15 on his last 43 picks involving the Giants, returning more than $1,100. Anyone who has followed him is way up.

Now, White has set his sights on Giants vs. Buccaneers. You can head to SportsLine to see his picks. Now, here are several NFL betting lines and trends for Giants vs. Buccaneers:

  • Giants vs. Buccaneers spread: Buccaneers -11
  • Giants vs. Buccaneers over-under: 50 points

According to DJ Esports, FunPlus Phoenix is currently ranked first. The odds of FPX winning the championship are 3.125, nearly a full point better than their nearest competition. 

FPX won it all back in S9 of Worlds. In the LPL playoffs this season, they swept LNG Esports and LNG Esports, securing their place in the finals. Although they ultimately lost to EDG in the finals, they demonstrated strategies, coordination, and offensive ability that blew many fans away. This will be their strongest weapon heading into Worlds. 

DK and EDG are tied for second place in the Outrights, with odds of 4.166 each. Both teams have shown that they deserve to be playing on the world’s largest stage and they are definitely strong candidates for Championship contention as well.

DK successfully took home the Cup last year in S10. At this year’s MSI, they had an excellent performance and showed their outstanding
