Kick-off: Saturday 17 August 2019 – 9.30pm AEST

Sports Bet Tips

Back Arsenal to win 3 – 1 in the head-to-head at 1.28 (BET365)

Back Arsenal with 2 goals winning margin at 4.00 (BET365)

After grafting away to earn the three points last week, the Gunners should be ready to perform in front of their home fans this week. Burnley scored well last week but are renowned for their poor travelling form. We don’t expect that to change this week – with Arsenal picking up a 3 – 1 win over Burnley at Emirates Stadium.

Talking points:

  • Unai Emery has confirmed that Arsenal stars Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac may also miss this weeks match up with Burnley, following from their security issues last week.
  • You can take the boy out of Burnley, but you can’t take Burnley out of the boy! Jay Rodriguez is relishing being back with the clarets

Fancy a cheeky bet? Back Burnley to draw power from their true underdog role with the Clarets to win the head-to-head at 9.50 (BET365)


Aston Villa vs Bournemouth

Sports Bet Tips

Back Aston Villa to win 2 – 1 in the head-to-head at (BET365)

Back Aston Villa to win by a 1 goal winning margin at (BET365)

The Villan’s Premier League 2019/20 return at home should see them able to gather some valuable ‘survival’ points, helped by the likely start for Douglas Luiz. The Cherries dropped points last week and do not travel well. Look for Aston Villa to win 2 – 1 over Bournemouth.

Talking points:

  • Jack Grealish to have a redeeming game for Villa after his stuff up helped Spurs on their way in last weeks game
  • Douglas Luiz looked calm in his short 9-minute stint against Spurs will be looking to show what the hype is about
  • Bournemouth’s attacking display has seemingly flipped from last season – taking 59 minutes for a shot-on-goal – it is early days but a worrying start for the Cherries

Our cheeky bet for this match sees Bournemouth leading Aston Villa 1 – nil at half time at 46.00 (BET365)


Brighton vs West Ham

Sports Bet Tips

Back Brighton to seal their second win of the campaign 2 – 1 in the head-to-head at 2.45 (BET365)

Back Brighton to win by a 1 goal winning margin at 4.00 (BET365)

Following on from a good away win, the seagulls look to give their fans more success this week – particularly with the likely start for new signing Neal Maupay. A decent performance in the loss last week means that the Hammers will be much more competitive this week.

Talking points:

  • Jack Wilshere is positive that the Hammers can turn it around and draw the positives following their test against the Premier Leagues’ top team Manchester City
  • Brighton are going all-in on the Aussie connection linking up their star between the sticks Mat Ryan with another familiar Aussie face in Aaron Mooy – joining the club on a deadline day shock loan from English Football League Championship outfit Huddersfield

Consider a cheeky bet on Brighton going up 2 nil at half time against West Ham with a strong showing out of the gate and finishing 2 – 1 at Falmer Stadium at 61.00 (BET365)


Everton vs Watford

Kick-off: Sunday 18 August 2019 – 12.00am AEST

Sports Bet Tips

Back Everton to edge out Watford 1 – nil in the head-to-head at 1.66 (BET365)

Back Everton to win by a 1 goal margin at 3.60 (BET365)

The Toffees returned home to Goodison Park with a point from their uninspiring goalless draw with Crystal Palace. Supporters will be hoping that they see some goals this week in their opening home fixture. Watford will be reeling from the drubbing they received from Brighton and should bounce-back with a much-improved performance, however, we expect Watford to still be missing picking up their first points of the Premier League 2019/20 season.

Talking points:

  • Watford boss Javi Gracia has been trying to take some weight off his shoulders after the boos from the fans last week
  • Gracia insists that Abdoulaye Doucoure is focused on the season ahead with Watford after Everton’s last-ditch effort to secure the midfielder with a $57 million AUD offer declined by the club

Our cheeky bet for this clash is Everton to lead 1 – nil at the half and a scoreless second half at Goodison Park at 17.00 (BET365)


Norwich vs Newcastle

Back Norwich to get their season underway with a 2 – 1 win in the head-to-head at 2.10 (BET365)

Back Norwich to break the tie and seal their win in the second half at 5.50 (BET365)

Despite a committed performance the Canaries came away without points in Matchday 1 of the Premier League 2019/20 season and will be looking to start collecting crucial end-of-season survival points. The Magpies failed to deliver last week and will need to improve substantially to avoid being knee-deep in the relegation battle this campaign.

Talking points:

  • Daniel Farke has strong words for the critics that are writing off the canaries for Premier League relegation
  • The referee who ruled out Jerome goal will be the VAR for the Norwich clash with Newcastle
  • Miguel Almiron and Joelinton’s blossoming partnership set to excite everyone at Newcastle ahead of a tough trip to Norwich

Cheeky bet on both teams winning a half of football and remaining deadlocked at the final whistle at 34.00 (BET365)


Southampton vs Liverpool

Sports Bet Tips

Back Liverpool to win 3 – 1 in the head-to-head at 1.36 (BET365)

Back Liverpool to come out firing in the first half and share the second half with the Saints at 21.00 (BET365)

There were a number of serious defensive lapses that led to a very poor result for the Saints last week and they will need to tighten things up as they face the free-scoring reds at St. Mary’s Stadium in their home opener. A solid season opener last week for Liverpool as they continued their easy goal-scoring manner.

Talking points:

  • Saints new boy Che Adams must learn to stay involved throughout the game
  • Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker’s injury to his calf in the first half of the season opener will keep him out for the next few weeks says Klopp

Cheeky bet on Liverpool winning the first half and Southampton taking the second before and ending all square at the final whistle at 51.00 (BET365)


Manchester City vs Tottenham

Spurs Tanguy Ndombele and John McGinn tangled in the penalty area of their Matchday 1 Premier League 2019/20.

Kick-off: Sunday 18 August 2019 – 2.30am AEST

Sports Bet Tips

Back Manchester City to come out on top 3 – 2 in the head-to-head at 1.33 (BET365)

Back Manchester City to win by a 1 goal margin at 3.60 (BET365)

This game is the ‘pick of the week’ and is a not to be missed match, tell the Mr or Mrs that they enjoy a late night out this Saturday and don’t miss this clash. City is hard to overcome at the Etihad and this week should be much the same. Spurs, however, will be on riding a high after last week’s win at home – but they face a much strong opposition this week.

Talking points:

  • Jose Mourinho’s comments this week that Manchester City’s B team would win the title shows the massive depth of the squad
  • Spurs last-minute signing of Giovani Lo Celso looks to bring further class on the ball to Spurs
  • Eriksen looks to be on the receiving end of an AUD$356K per week contract to keep him at Spurs

Look at placing a cheeky bet on Tottenham edging Manchester City in the head-to-head at 8.50 (BET365)


Sheffield United vs Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace look to improve their shaky performance from Matchday 1 of the Premier League 2019/20 season.

Kick-off: Sunday 18 August 2019 – 11.00pm AEST

Sports Bet Tips

Back Sheffield United to win a hard contest 1 – 0 in the head-to-head at 2.45

Back Sheffield United to win by a 1 goal margin at 3.37

Bramall Lane will host the Blades home return to the top flight of English football – where they will hope to build on last week’s efforts. While Crystal Palace only managed to get a point from their home opener last week and a lot could depend on the performance of hot and cold ace Wilfried Zaha.

Talking points:

  • Andros Townsend confirmed that Wilfried Zaha would not cause any friction in the locker room and is welcomed by his team-mates despite his attempt to force a transfer request to Everton at the end of the transfer window
  • Sheffield United could be one of the most interesting teams to watch thanks to the inventive movement of their three-man centre backs and genuine wing-back play

Check out the cheeky bet for a deadlocked second half with all the action coming in the first 45 minutes at 15.00 (BET365)


Chelsea vs Leicester

Leicester salvaged a point in their opening game of the Premier League 2019/20 season.

Kick-off: Monday 19 August 2019 – 1.30am AEST

Sports Bet Tips

Back Chelsea to get their season underway with a 3 – 1 win in the head-to-head at 1.75 (BET365)

Back Chelsea to stay consistent and win both halves of football at 2.87 (BET365)

This will be ‘Super’ Frank Lampard’s first home game as a Premier League manager and hoping that a win will follow. The young squad plus Christian Pulisic should prove enough to topple the Foxes. Leicester earned a good point last week and will hope that their defence can hold firm against the Chelsea this week too.

Talking points:

  • Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta insists that the young squad are trusted to deliver despite the 4 nil thrashing by the Red Devils last week
  • Last week’s result for Frank Lampard was the heaviest defeat for a Chelsea boss in their first competitive game at the helm since Danny Blanchflower’s side lost 7 – 2 to Boro in December 1978!
  • Leicester’s Harvey Barnes has raised his stock in the sheds thanks to an impressive cameo against Wolves last week

Cheeky bet this week is on Leicester leading 1 nil at the half with Chelsea to come out with force in the second half at 23.00 (BET365)


Wolverhampton vs Manchester United

Kick-off: Tuesday 20 August 2019 – 5.00am AEST

Sports Bet Tips

Back Manchester United to win 3 – 1 in the head-to-head with a steal at 2.15 (BET365)

Back Manchester United to win by a 2 goals margin at 6.00 (BET365)

The Wolves have been performing well in Europe and were unlucky last week not to take all 3 points. The Red Devils will expect to carry their goal scoring form from the Chelsea game into their matchup with Wolves.

Talking points:

  • Wolves look well-placed this season to take advantage of big team stumbles thanks to their charming, streetwise manager Nuno Santo
  • Wolves are excited by their pick up Ian Atkins for their recruitment team – previously worked with Everton and picked out John Stones and Romelu Lukaku
  • Paul Pogba looks to have changed his mind about leaving Old Trafford – hopefully, the speculation can go away for Manchester United to have a successful campaign

Place your cheeky bets on Manchester United winning the first half and Wolves sharing the goals in the second half at 15.00 (BET365)
