The Premier League took off and it was nothing short of drama in the first two opening games. Mourinho’s men are flexing their offensive powers, scoring eight goals in their two opening games while Champions Chelsea lost their opening encounter to Burney at Stamford Bridge. Betting on the Premier League can be very unpredictable in the early stages of the season, especially since most players are well rested and fit after the summer break. Liverpool will host Arsenal while their city rivals Everton prepare to face Conte’s men. Can Rooney make it three goals from three games?
Bet on Liverpool vs Arsenal
Both teams have secured a win from their two games played but both managers will be adamant on collecting all three points this weekend. Klopp will be looking to make amends after the goals conceived against Watford were mainly defensive errors. Liverpool are still struggling with closing gaps in the six-yard box and the Gunners have the quality to expose their back line. Liverpool are the favourites to emerge victorious and a cheeky tenner will potentially return £22.15. Consider combining this with a win for Manchester City over Bournemouth to increase your potential winnings.
Arsenal pulled an incredible comeback in their opening match against Leicester. The Gunners were losing 2-3 at the Emirates Stadium and managed to turn the score around and collect all the points in a hard-fought battle. However, consistency was always an issue for Wenger’s side as they lost to Stoke last weekend.
Both teams enjoy playing the offensive game and we don’t expect the match to be short of goals. Odds for both teams to score are currently priced at 1.48. Liverpool won both encounters in last year’s season and in both games, both teams scored and both finished in over 2.5 goals.
Alexandre Lacazette found the net on his debut for Arsenal, but can the French forward get his name on the scoresheet at Anfield? Odds for him to score at any time are priced at 2.75.
Bet on Manchester United
The Red Devils couldn’t have started the season on a better note, winning their first two games four goals to the good. Lukaku wasted no time getting acquainted with United’s style of play and the Belgian International found the net three times from their opening two games. Many were in doubt about whether he’ll pick up where he left off from Everton, but so far, he’s proving to be worth the transfer fee. Manchester United now face Leicester, a squad that’s been looking in terrific form this season thus far. Mourinho’s men are the favourites to win the game, having odds of 1.28 to collect all three points. Lukaku will be looking to get his name on the scoresheet for the third consecutive match and odds for that happening are priced at 1.72. For the visitors, a bet on Jamie Vardy to score at any time will potentially return £45 from a £10 bet, but Mourinho always comes up with a strategy to stop a dangerous forward. The red devils have a very powerful midfield and it’s going to hard for Leicester to take control of the game. Their best bet would be to soak up the pressure and catch them on the break, however, this can be a double-edged sword as United’s offensive prowess can inflict some serious damage when dominating the play.
Bet on Tottenham
Tottenham were too much to handle for newly promoted Newcastle and cruised past the Magpies with a solid two-nil win. It was the Spanish defender Marcos Alonso who saved the day after Batshuayi headed one past own goal keeper.
Ironically, the Spurs face Burnley next, who beat Chelsea in their opening game. Odds for Tottenham to collect all the points are set at 1.25 but for better odds, consider handicap betting, where Tottenham will need to win with a goal difference of two or more for the bet to be successful. Odds for that are set at 1.70.
We expect Tottenham to press forward early in the game, setting the stage and controlling the game. Over 2.5 goals has odds priced at 1.72. Think Burnley will get anything out of their upcoming clash? Try double chance betting on Burnley and if they don’t lose (win or draw), your bet will be a successful one. Odds for double chance on Burnley are set at 4.00.
