The race for the Premier League title is on and the top of the table remains crowded heading into this weekend's marquee matchups.
Before you make your picks on any Premier League fixture, you need to see who European football expert David Sumpter is picking. Sumpter is an applied mathematician and author of "Soccermatics," a book that explains how math works inside the sport. Along with other experienced analysts, Sumpter developed the powerful Soccerbot model.
The Soccerbot reads current odds and all team performance data, calculates key metrics and predicts upcoming matches. In the three seasons since its inception, Soccerbot is up an incredible 2,000 percent on Premier League picks. That's right -- 2,000 percent!
And the model is off to a hot start again this season. It correctly predicted extremely profitable draws for Everton-Bournemouth (+260), Newcastle-Cardiff (+211) and Wolves-Everton (+240), just to name a few of its big calls. Anyone who's followed it is way, way up.
Now, Sumpter has set his sights on this weekend's games, and his picks are in. We can tell you he's backing Arsenal (-187) against Leicester City. He's also revealed a strong moneyline pick for Saturday's showdown between Chelsea and Manchester United.
