English Premier League Betting Preview, Saturday 20 August
August 19, 2022

There is plenty of English Premier League action for punters to get stuck into this weekend and we take a look at 3 of Saturday’s matches from a betting angle.

Let’s start with a look at the Outright Betting where Manchester City are currently trading at 7/20 favourites ahead of Liverpool who are priced at 9/2.  You can get 15/1 Tottenham, 16/1 Chelsea, 18/1 Arsenal and 100/1 and better the balance.

Click here for Outright Betting including a number of other markets such as to finish last, to get relegated and to finish in the top half.



Tottenham are 4th on the table after two games and their last match was a thrilling 2-2 draw at Chelsea.  Prior to that they beat Southampton 4-1 at home.

Wolves are currently 14th on the table with 1 point in their two matches that courtesy of a goalless draw at home to Fulham last time out.  Prior to that they lost 2-1 to Leeds on the road.

Wolves won this fixture 2-0 last season.

Tottenham 4/10

Draw 4/1

Wolves 7/1


Suggested Bet:  Over 3.5 goals at 18/10

Tottenham’s matches have been free scoring so far this season and I get the feeling that with playing at home there are going to be plenty of goals scored and a good few conceded as well.


Leicester and Southampton have both got off to a slow start with Leicester currently sitting in 15th ahead of Southampton in 17th on goal difference.  Both teams have taken 1 point from their first two games, Leicester losing 4-2 away at Arsenal last time out after drawing 2-2 at home to Brentford in their opener and Southampton drew 2-2 at home to Leeds having lost 4-1 away at Tottenham in their opening fixture.

Last season’s meetings between these sides had plenty of goals with Leicester winning this fixture 4-1 and the reverse fixture being drawn 2-2.

Leicester City 17/20

Draw 3/1

Southampton 3/1


Suggested Bet: Over 3.5 goals at 15/10

I am going in with the same bet here at a slightly shorter price, but both the head-to-head stats and form this season suggests we are going to get goals in this one.



Bournemouth are 11th on the table with 1 win and 1 loss in their opening two games, that loss came 4-0 away at City last time out, but they had a good 2-0 home win over Aston Villa to start their season off.

Arsenal are sitting with a 100% record in 2nd place behind Manchester City on goal difference.  They beat Leicester 4-2 at home last time out and prior to that saw off Crystal Palace 2-0 on the road.

These sides played out low scoring fixtures last season with this fixture getting drawn 1-1 and Arsenal winning 1-0 at home.

Bournemouth 13/2

Draw 15/4

Arsenal 4/9


Suggested Bet:  Handicap, Arsenal -1.5 goals at 23/20

The Gunners have looked very impressive so far this season and I think Bournemouth are going to find it a very different proposition to facing Aston Villa.  Arsenal to win this game by more than a goal is my call.
