After a personally disappointing week in the Champions League (it’s only half over but it’s not looking good at the time of writing) I’m happy to return back to my main money maker, the English Premier League.

Plenty of interesting games to keep us interested, starting with the early Saturday kick-off between Huddersfield and Tottenham. This is exactly the kind of game Spurs have struggled with in the past, newly promoted and determined opponents coming up right after a round of Champions League matches. The hope (for Tottenham fans like myself) is that those days are behind us and with a number of players missing against Apoel, maybe this time Spurs will do what is expected of them. I can see no value in this match but if there are any tempting bets, it’s Huddersfield +0.5 in the Asian Handicap market (+200 with bet365).

The games set for the traditional kick–off time on Saturday lack a little spark, to be honest. Bournemouth v Leicester is the next up for examination and although I think Leicester can get a win against the Cherries, +162 (Pinnacle) doesn’t offer a great return for the risk involved.

The same can be said for the Match Odds market in the Manchester United v Crystal Place game. Manchester United to Win To Nil at -153 isn’t a terrible bet. I think Palace will be looking to improve at the back before they start worrying about actually scoring goals and United have a strong, physical side that should see them win this one.

Southampton haven’t been convincing this season but Stoke look worthy of the odds provided in this one. +194 with Pinnacle is worth a bet in my book even if it’s only a small one.

West Brom have provided pleasure and disappointment in equal measure so far this season. I’m expecting some more disappointment for Baggies fans this weekend as they come up against a Watford side that I rate quite highly. Pinnacle are offering +279 for an away win and I think that’s got great value.

West Ham v Swansea seems like a dangerous match for betting so I’m swerving it early on.

The game of the day is surely Chelsea v Manchester City, this should be a fantastic match but good, high profile, games don’t always match up to good betting so this is another one I’m avoiding.

Sundays games start with Arsenal v Brighton and unfortunately, there’s nothing for me in this one either. Arsenal have Europa League involvement in midweek and I need to see how they cope with that for a couple more rounds before I start backing them straight after a European week.

Everton v Burnley is exactly the kind of “low-key”, high-value game that I like to bet on. It may seem counter intuitive but there are times when the favourite still has enough value to back. This is one of those occasions so I’m all over an Everton win at -149 with Pinnacle.

That’s it for my weekend of Premier League betting. I’m not interested in the Newcastle v Liverpool game, partly because of Liverpool's European involvement and partly because I can never tell which Newcastle side is going to turn up.

Enjoy the weekend's games and I’ll be back for more Premier League betting after the International break.
