The Hard Tackle takes a look at the best betting markets for the top fixtures ahead of the third game-week of the Premier League.
The football season has just begun and there have already been quite a few interesting match-ups in England. While Arsenal vs Liverpool saw a huge profit in the goal-scoring markets, the Gunners would have lost people some of it with a stalemate against Leicester.
The Hard Tackle takes a look at some of the best betting markets for some of the fixtures to happen in the Premier League this weekend in order to shine some light on the probable bets for the matchday.
1. Chelsea vs Burnley
1. Over 3.5 cards @ 1.66
2. Both Teams To Score @ 2.37
Outside/ Underdog bets:
1. First Team to Score : Burnley @ 6.00
2. Full Time Score – 2 – 1 @ 11.00
2. Watford vs Arsenal
Another game which could see cards flying out. Watford have seen 7 cards in total over 2 matches while Arsenal have received 5. That means an average probability of 6 cards, which is surely way over the line of 3.5 cards being provided by bet365.
Watford have been in good shape in the two matches thus far. Arsenal’s defensive frailties could result in an unlikely Watford triumph, which would mean the Gunners would open their account with just 1 point from 3 matches.
1. O3.5 cards @ 1.80
2. Arsenal Clean sheet – NO @ 1.57
3. Both Teams To Score – YES @ 1.90
1. Watford Draw No Bet @ 4.00
2. Full Time Draw @ 3.75
3. Tottenham vs Liverpool
Tottenham and Liverpool is likely to be our match of the game-week. Both the teams have an abundance of creative talent which is likely to mean a great market for BTTS (Both Teams To Score). The game is likely to be a fast-paced game which could set the match up for a cracker of a first-half.
1. Both Teams To Score – YES @ 1.61
2. Tottenham Team Cards – O1.5 @ 1.80
1. Both Teams to Score in First Half – YES @ 4.00
4. Man City vs West Ham
Another game which could produce an enticing match as West Ham would be determined to bounce back from a disappointing loss to Astra in the Europa League qualifying campaign. City’s defence is yet to show a solid performance, something which could haunt Pep in this game particularly.
1. BTTS – YES @ 1.90
2. City Clean Sheet – NO @ 1.72
1. First Team to Score – West Ham @ 4.50
2. Anytime Goalscorer – Dmitri Payet @ 5.50
Even though it’s been only three competitive games into the Jose Mourinho era, Manchester United seem to be on a roll of sorts. The Red Devils have scored 7 goals and conceding just 2, one of which was from an individual mistake [Jamie Vardy vs Leicester City] and the other was down to individual brilliance [Adam Smith vs Bournemouth].
Hull City appeared to be in shambles going into the season but the club have now recorded two wins out of two under the tutelage of caretaker manager Mike Phelan, who previously worked under Sir Alex Ferguson for many years at Manchester United.
Both the teams have scored 2 or more in each of their games but it appears like Hull City’s run could very well end when one compares the quality of the two sides. Manchester United have won both their games by a margin of two goals and The Hard Tackle is of the opinion that the same could be the case against Hull City.
1. Manchester United Over 1.5 Team Goals @ 1.66
2. Manchester United Asian Handicap -1.0, -1.5 @ 2.1
1. Full Time Scoreline 0-2 @ 7.00
