Premier League weekend preview
The Premier League weekend kicks off on Friday night when Everton entertain Crystal Palace
Game Week 7 is fast approaching in the Premier League, with Friday night football taking place before five games on Saturday and a further four matches taking place on Sunday.
Manchester City have shortened to 1.62 (8/13), with bet365 among those bookmakers who are convinced Pep Guardiola’s side are the team to beat.
A 100% start comes under scrutiny when the Citizens head to White Hart Lane without Kevin de Bruyne, with Liverpool now rated as the team most likely to challenge City. Paddy Power offer 6.50 (11/2) that Jurgen Klopp’s side go and grab the title.
Arsenal look slick and odds of 10.0 (9/1) might make appeal to some, with Manchester United also back to winning ways and they are slightly bigger at 11.0 (10/1).
Premier League bankers this weekend
Manchester United are at home to Stoke on Sunday and William Hill offer a best price 1.30 (3/10) about the Red Devils. Arsenal will also be fancied at 1.40 (2/5) with the same bookmaker when they travel to Turf Moor, with the Gunners looking slick.
Liverpool have been destroying teams in recent weeks and Unibet have odds of 1.45 (5/11) that the Reds win at Swansea, although Chelsea make less appeal at 1.50 (1/2) away to Hull considering that Antonio Conte has problems with his defence.
Will Manchester City maintain their 100% record?
It’s a tough clash for a City side who play away to Celtic on Wednesday night before preparing for a match at White Hart Lane. Pep Guardiola’s side will play Spurs on Sunday without the injured Kevin de Bruyne, with the visitors as big as 2.10 (11/10) to claim three points.
Tottenham have a 100% record and they are 3.50 (5/2) to win this fixture as they did last season, although Harry Kane is absent from the squad with injury and there are a few other concerns for Mauricio Pochettino.
Best Premier League bets this weekend
Liverpool have won their last three Premier League games while conceding and the same thing happened at the Emirates in the first match of the season. Therefore, the 2.88 (15/8) with bet365 about the Reds winning with them and Swansea scoring makes appeal.
Chelsea look worth opposing when they head to the KCom Stadium. Hull might have taken a couple of beatings against Arsenal and Liverpool, although the same two teams have beaten the Blues. Rather than back the Tigers, we can get 1.64 (7/11) with BetVictor about Mike Phelan’s team with a +1.5 Goal handicap.
For anyone wanting to place a Premier League treble, we recommend Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal at combined odds of 2.62 (13/8). This price is with William Hill and we expect these sides to come through with flying colours against weak opposition.
