Premier League Game Week 1 Predictions and Tips

The Premier League is back! The 2022-23 season begins on Friday with a London derby and we have lots of exciting fixtures that follow on Saturday and Sunday. Here at WhatAcca.com, we have a best bet for each of the ten top-flight clashes and will also have accumulator tips for each day.

FRIDAY 5TH AUGUST

Crystal Palace 20:00 Arsenal

Arsenal were unprepared for their opener at Brentford twelve months ago although things could be different at Selhurst Park. Gabriel Jesus has arrived at the Emirates along with Oleksandr Zinchenko and Fabio Vieira. With the defence having a settled look and the Gunners could get revenge for last season’s 3-0 reverse in this fixture. Palace are certainly capable of finding the net considering the bouncing home support in front of the Friday night lights. The WhatAcca.com team believe there will be goals galore in this fixture.

SATURDAY 6TH AUGUST

Fulham 12:30 Liverpool

Marco Silva claims that Fulham are unprepared for the start of the season with only sixteen senior players in the squad. It doesn’t bode well for the arrival of a rampant Liverpool team. Who claimed a 3-1 win over Manchester City in the Community Shield. Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz should be a menace in front of roving full-backs Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson, with the Reds likely to win by a comfortable margin. Why not open a Bet365 account today and back Liverpool to win 🙂

AFC Bournemouth 15:00 Aston Villa

We’ll keep things simple for this clash at the Vitality Stadium. Aston Villa’s pre-season has gone according to plan and the performances of Leon Bailey have been tantamount to having a new signing. With Matty Cash and Lucas Digne one of the best full-back pairings in the division. We do recommend our readers review our best betting site for accumulators guide for more tips.

We’ll back the Villans to make a winning start against a Bournemouth side who have struggled to recruit new players since promotion. Dont forget to learn more about Premier League handicap betting with our free guide.

Leeds United 15:00 Wolverhampton Wanderers

It’s been all change at Elland Road, with Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha exiting the club. And JesseMarsch getting the chance to sign a clutch of unproven players in the Premier League. Wolves have a more settled look about them but they are missing Raul Jimenez. And the majority of their games featured Under 2.5 Goals even with the Mexican operating in a forward position. We might expect a tight encounter in West Yorkshire.

Newcastle United 15:00 Nottingham Forest

It’s a relatively new dawn for both clubs, with Newcastle United now bidding for a top six assault this season. And they were one of the form Premier League sides during the second half of the campaign. Nottingham Forest are transformed from the team that enjoyed promotion and we could see Jesse Lingard and Taiwo Awoniyi offer a tangible scoring threat. This would be a great game to place a Skybet both teams to score wager!

Tottenham Hotspur 15:00 Southampton

There has been plenty of money for Tottenham Hotspur on the Premier League handicap market. And they are odds-on for a top four spot. Antonio Conte has made this Spurs team potentially title-challenging. This is a game whereby we recommend our readers understand the probability of accumulator odds before betting.

And they should be too strong in all departments for Southampton. It will be interesting to see how Ivan Perisic fares as a wing-back, with Son and Harry Kane likely to terrorise the Saints defence.

Everton 17:30 Chelsea

One of the hardest Premier League fixtures to predict. Everton claimed a 1-0 win in this fixture last season and are likely to deploy the same pragmatic tactics. Against a Chelsea side who could experience some early disarray. KalidouKoulibaly and Raheem Sterling are notable signings although there’s a lack of out-and-out centre forward and they could be nullified by disciplined opponents. Check out the WhatAcca.com Acca today recommendations, they are updated daily.

SUNDAY 7TH AUGUST

Leicester City 14:00 Brentford

A tale of two attacking midfielders. James Maddison remains at Leicester despite strong advances from Newcastle United, while Christian Eriksen has left Brentford for Manchester United. It could prove to make all the difference, with the Foxes likely to create plenty through their central playmaker. And he will be flanked by Harvey Barnes and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall.

Manchester United 14:00 Brighton & Hove Albion

Not a fixture where we want to be lumping on the odds-on favourite. Erik ten Hag might take time to achieve the desired effect with Manchester United. And they face a Brighton team who bloodied the noses of Arsenal and Tottenham towards the back end of last season. Retaining Marc Cucurella is a big plus and we think the draw offers infinitely more value. Be sure to take a look at the bet builder tips listed on our website for more inspiration.

West Ham United 16:30 Manchester City

This fixture ended 2-2 last season and we think West Ham can engineer another point in front of a passionate London Stadium crowd. Jarrod Bowen terrorised the City defence a few months ago and the rearguard also shipped three goals against Liverpool in the Community Shield. ErlingHaaland was the marquee signing for the champions. Although it might take time for the Norwegian to click into gear.

The opening weekend of the Premier League is always highly exciting. And many people enjoy placing bets on the outcome of each game. Alternatively, there is the chance to place an accumulator on the top flight action. While some customers go for the Bet Builder option and a same game multi can be a great way to get involved.
