There are 3 English Premier League matches taking place on Saturday and we suggest a bet in each of them.
Remember that while this preview concentrates on the 3 matches taking place on Saturday the long term betting markets are updated on a constant basis and you can click here for the Outright Betting and other markets.
Wolves v Manchester City – Click here to bet
Wolves are currently 14th on the log with just 1 win in their opening 6 games which came last time out 1-0 at home to Southampton and the big trend in Wolves matches has been the low scoring nature with their last 5 games all delivering profits had you backed under 2.5 goals. Wolves are undefeated at home this season,
Manchester City had to fight hard for a 2-1 home win over Dortmund in the Champions League in midweek and the last time they were in League action they dropped 2 points away at Villa drawing 1-1 and they have drawn 2 and won 1 of their 3 away matches this season.
I think City will have too much quality for Wolves and I am backing them to win by more than a goal, a result that would have arrived in this fixture in the last two seasons.
Suggested Bet: Handicap, Manchester City -1.5 goals at 10/11
Newcastle v Bournemouth – Click here to bet
Newcastle are currently sitting 11th on the table with 1 win and 4 draws in their opening 6 games and they haven’t won since their opening day home victory over Nottingham. Last time out they played out a disappointing goalless draw at home to Crystal Palace and their other home match was also a draw, but of a far different nature a 3-3 finish with Title favourites, the defending Champions, Manchester City.
Bournemouth are 13th on the log with 2 wins and 1 draw in their opening 6 games and they certainly have been unpredictable. They beat Nottingham 3-2 on the road last time out, a result that could be backed at 5/2 and that broke a run of 4 games in which time they only took 1 point and were hammered 9-0 on the road by Liverpool.
I actually think that Bournemouth are well priced to win this game at 6/1. What stops me backing them is that I do think Newcastle are going to come to life at some point and it may well be this weekend.
The goals market is where I am heading and I am going to be looking for 3 goals or more in this one.
Suggested Bet: Over 2.5 goals at 8/10
Tottenham v Leicester – Click here to bet
Tottenham currently sit 3rd on the table and they are undefeated in their opening 6 games with 4 wins and 2 draws. Last time out they beat Fulham 2-1 at home to keep up a 100% home record with victories over Wolves and Southampton.
Tottenham were in action in the Champions League earlier in the week going down 2-0 away to Sporting, a disappointing result given they started the match 12/10 favourites.
Leicester are bottom of the table and are still looking for their first victory of the season. They have now lost 5 games in a row after been hammered 5-2 away at Brighton last time out and they have lost all 3 of their away games this season, also going down by a goal to Chelsea and 2 goals to Arsenal.
It is hard to oppose Tottenham on current form, but the goals market is where I am heading here and I think we are going to get plenty of them and will go for 4 goals or more in the match. This bet would have arrived in the last 3 head-to-head clashes between the sides in the Premier League.
Suggested Bet: Over 3.5 goals at 14/10
