EPL Weekend Betting Preview: Week 3
Jose Mourinho is a man in the spotlight after Manchester United’s sticky start to the season, and his side face a stern examination against Tottenham Hotspur.
That clash at Old Trafford takes place on Monday evening, the culmination of another intriguing weekend of Premier League action.
There are six games on Saturday, with champions Manchester City kicking things off on the road at Wolverhampton Wanderers on, while there are three games on Sunday – the highlight being Chelsea’s trip to Newcastle United.
The Best Bet:
When the fixture computer coughed out Arsenal’s opening two fixtures of the season, new manager Unai Emery’s shoulders would have slumped at the prospect of facing Manchester City and then Chelsea. He’d have been right, as those games yielded zero points.
The media coverage has been balanced and broadly positive, with the consensus being that Emery must be given time to reshape the club in the post-Arsene Wenger era.
In order for Emery to ensure that feeling continues, his side will need to get their first win of the campaign at home to West Ham United on Saturday. Anything other than three points, and the mood will shift.
Arsenal should go into that game with a deal of confidence as they were not disgraced against City and showed excellent resolve to fight back from two goals down to draw level with Chelsea, only to succumb to a sucker punch.
Emery has plenty of quality to call on and at 188BET’s price of 1.38, the Gunners look good for the win.
Against Liverpool on Monday night, Crystal Palace earned no points but plenty of admirers for the way they pushed Jurgen Klopp’s side all the way at Selhurst Park.
Pundit Gary Neville said after the game that he felt Palace had the quality in their ranks to be challenging for a place in the top eight. That’s a lofty aim, but if it’s to be achieved they have to be taking three points against the Watfords of this world.
Palace travel to Vicarage Road on Sunday and they can be backed at 2.95 with 188BET to register a second win of the season.
Tips to Note:
Mo Salah had an off day in Liverpool’s win over Crystal Palace. By off day, we mean he won a penalty and chalked up another assist later in the game to help seal the win.
Many players would dream of such off days, but Salah is no ordinary player and back on home soil at Anfield against Brighton and Hove Albion, he looks primed to find the target – which is 1.50 with 188BET.
After coming through the ranks at Arsenal and being tipped for greatness, it’s fair to say Jack Wilshere has not fulfilled his potential.
He is now writing a new chapter at West Ham, but is certain to get a warm welcome when his new side take on the Gunners this weekend. He can be backed at 7.50 with 188BET to get his name on the scoresheet.
