Lawro’s Premier League Predictions for Saturday 23rd October & 22/1 Betting Tip

Lawro predictions

BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson has picked out his Premier League predictions for this weekend’s football and from them, we can bet on his Saturday 3pm selections in a 22/1 accumulator.

There are just the four matches at 3pm this week because of the Europa League and Conference League so the selected matches are Crystal Palace vs Newcastle, Everton vs Watford, Leeds vs Wolves, and Southampton vs Burnley.

There are a few different sign-up bonuses you can use this weekend and one of them is an exclusive £60 offer when you open a new 888Sport account.

Crystal Palace vs Newcastle: Crystal Palace win

Graeme Jones will be in charge of Newcastle following Steve Bruce’s departure, and this is a free hit for him because he’s not really in the running to take the job permanently.

Callum Wilson is back fit for Newcastle, and you saw the difference he makes to their attack with his early goal against Tottenham.

I’d be more worried about the Magpies at the other end, though, even if Wilfried Zaha is not well enough to play for Palace.

Palace have not quite managed to turn some good performances into wins yet under Patrick Vieira – Monday’s draw with Arsenal was another example of that, because they should have won – but they are progressing nicely.

Lawro’s prediction: 2-1


Everton vs Watford: Everton win

I’m not sure what Watford were trying to do in their 5-0 defeat by Liverpool last weekend, in Claudio Ranieri’s first game as Hornets boss.

They made it so easy for Liverpool, and didn’t even start to try to play until they were 4-0 down.

Watford have to do more here, but I don’t think this is a good time for them to play Everton, who were beaten at home by former manager David Moyes’ West Ham at the weekend.

We will see a reaction from Rafa Benitez’s side too, that’s for sure. I know they are still without Dominic Calvert-Lewin up front, but they should still win this one.

Lawro’s prediction: 2-0


Leeds vs Wolves: Draw

Wolves are on a roll, with four wins in their past five games, and they are scoring some goals now too.

Meanwhile, Leeds lost again last week, at Southampton. They were without Kalvin Phillips, Raphinha and Patrick Bamford at St Mary’s and Raphinha might be the only one of that trio who plays here.

This is a tricky time for Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa but I think they will find some form soon – it might not happen until Phillips and Bamford are back though.

Lawro’s prediction: 1-1


Southampton vs Burnley: Southampton win

Burnley are still waiting for their first league win of the season but Southampton got theirs against Leeds last week, which was big for them.

The Clarets put up a decent fight in their defeat at Manchester City but that is the least I expect from them. Goals seem hard to come by, which is a worry.

Southampton are hardly prolific themselves, but I think they will edge this one.

Lawro’s prediction: 2-1
