Aston Villa 4.85, the draw 3.65, Arsenal 1.78
Villa’s lofty position has clearly done little to convince the odds setters but 10 points from a possible 12, together with away wins at Liverpool and Stoke must surely make Paul Lambert’s side a good value punt on Saturday.
Arsenal have looked unconvincing against Leicester, Everton and Crystal Palace but a return to form in a 2-2 draw with Manchester City last time out suggests that the market is probably right. I’m backing Alexis Sanchez to fire the Gunners up the table in a comfortable win.
Best Bet: Alexis Sanchez to score three goals or more 41.00
Score Prediction: Aston Villa 1-3 Arsenal 15.00
Burnley 2.47, the draw 3.25, Sunderland 3.05
Two points and one goal from four matches so far suggests that Sean Dyche’s side will struggle this season and while Gus Poyet’s Sunderland have been inconsistent, there was enough quality and resilience shown against Spurs to suggest that the Black Cats will claim their first win of the season.
Burnley’s record suggests that the goals markets should be avoided but a total of over 2.5 becomes good value in a game that should go to the visitors.
Best Bet: Over 2.5 goals 2.32
Score Prediction: Burnley 1-2 Sunderland 11.50
Newcastle United 2.15, the draw 3.35, Hull City 3.60
Bottom of the table Newcastle have failed to score in three of their four EPL games so far and with no Cabaye and no Remy in this side, it’s hard to see where the first win is coming from. The last time the Magpies played Hull, the game ended in a personal disaster for Alan Pardew and the Tigers should be looking to inflict more misery on the hosts.
Nikica Jelavic to score anytime is a good option in what should be another away victory.
Best Bet: Nikica Jelavic to score anytime 3.90
Score Prediction: Newcastle United 1-2 Hull City 13.00
Swansea City 2.47, the draw 3.30, Southampton 3.00
Last Saturday’s 4-0 thumping of Newcastle took the Saints into fourth place while Swansea slipped to third after losing their 100% record to Chelsea. Both teams may be in false positions at this early stage of the campaign but they’ve been solid and this looks to be the toughest game to predict this weekend.
Form is suggesting the draw so we’ll back a share of the points.
Best Bet: Both teams to score 1.77
Score Prediction: Swansea City 2-2 Southampton 14.00
Tottenham 1.50, the draw 4.30, West Brom 7.00
Spurs’ 4-0 win over QPR suggests that they can win post Europa League and they’ll certainly have a good chance against a West Brom team who sit second from bottom. The hosts still look to be in need of a top quality striker and are uncomfortably short here at 1.50 but the Baggies’ record indicates a home win, even if it’s a tight one.
Emmanuel Adebayor is one of those players who has yet to impress but the Togolese should be on the mark in one of Sunday’s early kick-offs.
Best Bet: Emmanuel Adebayor to score anytime 2.08
Score Prediction: Tottenham 2-0 West Brom 7.50
Everton 1.40, the draw 4.75, Crystal Palace 8.50
After a slow start to the season, Everton have come to life with wins over West Brom and Wolfsburg in the Europa League. There have been signs that Roberto Martinez’s men are back to their best form from the previous campaign and that should be enough to take three points on Sunday.
I’ve correctly predicted two successive draws for the Eagles and their supporters may be pleased to know that I’m not expecting anything from them at Goodison.
Best Bet: Steven Naismith to score anytime 2.60
Score Prediction: Everton 3-0 Crystal Palace 10.00
