Manchester United welcome Bournemouth in the early kick off on Saturday and they will be looking to kick on form last week’s League Cup win and get a little higher up the league. A win here will take them above Liverpool, even if it’s just temporarily, who have a big match themselves against Arsenal. A home win is the obvious, and likely, result but at odds of -357 (Pinnacle) there isn’t a lot of value. Instead, I’m going for Manchester United to win the first half at -149 with Ladbrokes.

Leicester City face off against Hull in the second game of the post-Ranieri era. Both sides are in danger of relegation and I’m going for a draw in this one at +264 with Pinnacle. A point each doesn’t really help either side but it’s likely they’ll have to stomach it.

Stoke City will be licking their wounds after last weekend’s heavy defeat against Spurs. A result like that can have an effect and I suspect Stoke won’t be that open again for a few games. The odds on the Under 2.5 goals market for the match against Middlesbrough are low but just about acceptable at -172 with Pinnacle.

Swansea have improved a lot since Paul Clement came in and with a home match against Burnley, a side that do not travel well, they have the chance of picking up another 3 points. At odds of -104 with BetVictor, I think there is some value in that one.

Both Watford and Southampton have been tricky sides to judge this season and although I think Southampton will get an away win here, I’m staying away from placing a bet on this one.

Based on the recent head to head records of matches between these two, the value is on a Crystal Palace win. I’m struggling to back that though as I think West Brom will come through with 3 points. At +119 (Pinnacle) I’m prepared to ignore the value (not often I say that) and go with my gut instead.

I wish I could say that I have a handle on the biggest match of the weekend but Liverpool v Arsenal has me stumped. These are two good technical sides and this should be a very good match to watch. Unfortunately, I can’t find a bet for it so this is one that I’ll stick to watching and not betting.

Tottenham v Everton finished goalless last season but with the two hottest strikers in the league, I can’t see that happening again. In fact, I think we’ll see a very fast start. Because of that, I’m going for over 1.5 goals in the first half at +170 with BetVictor.

Sundays last game is the match between Sunderland and Manchester City. I’m on Both Teams To Score (Yes) on this one. You can get -125 with Bet365 and although I think Manchester City will win, it won’t be an unblemished victory.

The last game of the weekend is the London derby between West Ham and Chelsea. I’m keeping it simple on this one and going for the away victory at -159 with Pinnacle.

Some tough matches ahead and hopefully some profit to go with it. Certainly, there are a couple of good matches to watch in there.
