The blockbusters continue in the English Premier League this weekend and there will be plenty of interest when Chelsea and Manchester United do battle for the first time this season.
Manchester City and Southampton have been involved in a number of exciting contests in recent seasons and they are set for another intriguing fixture this weekend, while defending champions Leicester City will host Crystal Palace at King Power Stadium.
There are ten interesting matches spread out right across the weekend and you can find our thoughts for every single match below.
Bournemouth Vs Tottenham
Saturday 22 October, 10:00pm, Goldsands Stadium
Bournemouth produced their best performance of the season to record a dominant victory over Hull City, but they play a much tougher assignment against Tottenham.
Bournemouth were on the receiving end of a couple of heavy defeats against Tottenham last season and it should come as no surprise that they will start this game as clear underdogs.
The Cherries have actually won three of their past eight games as home underdogs for a narrow profit and they have shown they are capable of stringing wins together.
Tottenham were far from impressive against West Bromwich Albion and they missed out on a golden opportunity to go to the top of the English Premier League.
These are the type of games in which Tottenham can’t really afford to drop points in and their record as away favourites suggests that they should get the job done handily – they have won eight of their past 13 games in the scenario for a clear profit.
Tottenham should be able to win this game comfortably and they are genuine value at their current price of $1.95.
Back Tottenham To Win @ $1.95
Arsenal Vs Middlesbrough
Sunday 23 October, 1:00am, Emirates Stadium
Arsenal are the equal shortest-priced favourites of the weekend and they are fancied to have no issues accounting for Middlesbrough.
Arsenal made it six wins on the trot with their exciting victory over Swansea City and they have flown under the radar somewhat to sit in second position.
The Gunners have won 13 of their past 18 games as home favourites for a clear profit, but whether you can get them as short as $1.25 is the big question.
Middlesbrough made a promising start to the EPL season, but they have taken just two points from their past six games and they suffered another disappointing loss against Watford last weekend.
They have now won just one of their past four games as away underdogs for a loss and it is tough to see them taking anything from this clash.
Arsenal should be able to get the job done comfortably, but there is no value at their current price and I am willing to stay out from a betting perspective.
Burnley Vs Everton
Sunday 23 October, 1:00am, Turf Moor
Burnley go into this game on the back of two straight losses to Arsenal and Southampton and they face another tough assignment against Everton this weekend.
Burnley will go into this game as heavy underdogs, but they have already won two of their four games as home underdogs this season for a hefty profit.
Everton played extremely well to take a point from their clash with Manchester City last weekend and they continue to be well organised at the back – they have not conceded more than one goal in a game this season.
They have won five of their past eight games as away favourites for a clear profit and I am confident that they can return to winning form this weekend.
There is still a bit of value at their current price of $1.67 and they are one of the safest bets of the weekend.
Back Everton To Win @ $1.67
Hull City Vs Stoke City
Sunday 23 October, 12:00am, The KC Stadium
Hull City have fallen in a big hole in the past month and they go into this clash on the back of a heavy defeat at the hands of Bournemouth.
There is no doubt that a lack of depth has taken its tole on Hull City and they will go into this clash with Stoke City as underdogs.
We only have a small sample size, but Hull City have won just one of their past four games as home underdogs.
Stoke City have bounced back from their extremely poor start to the season to take five points from their past three games and they are sure to have taken plenty of confidence from their first win of the season over Sunderland.
The Potters have only started two games in the past 12 months as away favourites, but they did lose both of them and they are a very tough side to trust as the punter’s elect.
It would not surprise to see Hull City bounce back somewhat this season and the $3.20 on offer for the draw is the clear value selection in this clash.
Back The Draw @ $3.20
Leicester City Vs Crystal Palace
Sunday 23 October, 12:00am, King Power Stadium
Leicester City are on the quick back-up following their UEFA Champions League victory on Wednesday morning.
Leicester City were completely outplayed by Chelsea last weekend and they have now won just one of their past five games in the English Premier League, while they have been on the end of three heavy defeats.
They will still go into this clash with Crystal Palace as clear favourites and their record in this scenario over the past 12 months is a most impressive 10-4-0.
Crystal Palace had their winning run ended by West Ham last weekend, but it is fair to say that their recent form has been better than that of Leicester City.
They have taken something from their past 11 games as away underdogs and they were only narrowly beaten by Leicester City in both their meetings last season.
Crystal Palace are well over the odds at their current price and I am taking the gamble that they can end Leicester City’s unbeaten run at King Power Stadium.
Back Crystal Palace To Win @ $3.60
Swansea City Vs Watford
Sunday 23 October, 12:00am, Liberty Stadium
Swansea City have lost four games in a row, but they will still go into this clash with Watford as clear favourites.
There is no doubt that Swansea City improved against Arsenal last weekend, but it is incredible tough to trust a team that has won just one game so far this season.
Swansea City are 4-3-3 as home favourites over the past 12 months and they seem criminally under the odds in this fixture.
Watford returned to winning form with a victory over Middlesbrough and it is fair to say that they are one of the most underrated outfits in the entire English Premier League.
They have won six of their past 17 games as away underdogs for a clear profit and at their current price of $3.25 they are the best bet of the entire weekend.
Back Watford To Win @ $3.25
West Ham United Vs Sunderland
Sunday 23 October, 12:00am, Olympic Stadium
West Ham finally returned to winning form with their victory over Crystal Palace, but winning at the Olympic Stadium could prove to be a tougher assignment.
The Hammers have struggled both on and off the field so far this season and they are an incredibly tough team to trust from a betting perspective – they have won just four of their past 11 games as home favourites for a clear loss.
Sunderland are still looking for their first win in the English Premier League this season after they were extremely poor against Stoke City last weekend.
They have won just three of their past 17 games as away underdogs for a clear loss and David Moyes is a man under a great deal of pressure.
It is incredibly difficult to trust either of these teams from a betting perspective and I am more than happy to stay out of this clash.
Liverpool Vs West Bromwich Albion
Sunday 23 October, 3:30am, Anfield
Liverpool are the other shortest-priced favourite of the weekend and they are expected to get the job done comfortably against West Bromwich Albion.
They had their winning run halted by Manchester United last weekend – in one of the most boring games of football that you are ever likely to see – but in the past month they have recorded a couple of big victories over inferior opposition.
In saying that, their record as favourites at Anfield is still not particularly impressive and they have not beaten West Brom since 2014.
West Bromwich Albion produced one of their best performances of the season to date to take a point from Tottenham and they have not lost a game for over a month.
They have only recorded three wins from their past 19 games as away underdogs, but they have been able to take a point from nine of these fixtures.
West Brom are the type of outfit that could frustrate Liverpool – we saw it happen twice last year – and the $5.50 available for the draw is well over the odds.
Back The Draw @ $5.50
Manchester City Vs Southampton
Sunday 23 October, 11:30pm, Etihad Stadium
Manchester City raced away to an early lead at the top of the English Premier League, but they have come back to the field after losing to Tottenham and drawing with Everton.
They will head into this clash on the back of a Champions League clash with Barcelona and there is reason to think that they could be a touch vulnerable in this clash.
Manchester City will still start this clash as clear favourites and they have won 11 of their past 18 games as home favourites for a loss.
Southampton have bounced back from their slow start to the season to win three of their past four games and they will take plenty of confidence from the fact that they were able to beat Manchester City last season.
The Saints have have taken at least a point in six of their past 11 games as away favourites and they are more than good enough to come away from this game with a draw,
Back The Draw @ $4.33
Chelsea Vs Manchester United
Monday 24 October, 2:00am, Stamford Bridge
This will be an intriguing tactical contest between two of the more defensive managers in the English Premier League.
Chelsea produced their best performance of the season to date to comfortably account for Leicester City, but I expect that manager Antonio Conte will go into this clash with a far more defensive mindset.
Chelsea will start this clash as clear favourites and their record at home favourites is 6-8-4 – with the draw an extremely profitable betting play.
Manchester United showed no ambition whatsoever against Liverpool last weekend and I expect Jose Mourinho to produce a repeat against his old club.
The Red Devils have taken at least a point from four of their past five games and Mourinho will be desperate to ensure that he doesn’t suffer a defeat at Stamford Bridge.
Just about everything points to this game finishing as a low-scoring draw and the $3.20 currently available for a stalemate is outstanding value.
