FRIDAY 13TH AUGUST
Brentford 20:00 Arsenal
Brentford are in the Premier League and the Bees could be buzzing on Friday night for this opener against an Arsenal side who were largely erratic last season. Ivan Toney is an exciting prospect although Thomas Frank’s side are not a one-man team, with Mikel Arteta under pressure to deliver this season although the Gunners might fall short here. WhatAcca.com recommend William Hill for Premier League betting, simlple visit them via this unique link
BEST BET: Brentford +1
SATURDAY 14TH AUGUST
Manchester United 12:30 Leeds United
We’re wary of backing the Red Devils at short odds given the limited pre-season that the majority of first-team players have had, with Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane potentially making their debuts. Marcelo Bielsa will hope that Kalvin Phillips is available and there is plenty to like about Leeds’ attacking threat so we’re backing both teams to score.
BEST BET: BTTS Yes
Burnley 15:00 Brighton & Hove Albion
Both of these teams struggled to score goals last season, with the Clarets finding the net just 33 times last season and Sean Dyche has not been able to really strengthen his squad. Similarly, Brighton are still reliant on Neal Maupay for firepower and we’re happy to back a low-scoring clash.
BEST BET: Under 2.5 Goals
Chelsea 15:00 Crystal Palace
With Eberechi Eze missing in action, there’s a huge reliance on Wilfried Zaha to make something happen for Patrick Vieira’s Palace and this could be an uncomfortable opener against a Chelsea side who are genuine title challengers with two good players in every position.
BEST BET: Chelsea win to nil
Everton 15:00 Southampton
Rafael Benitez will hope to get a tune out of Everton although things have gone stagnant at Goodison Park, while Richarlison is still missing in action and there are fitness doubts over Dominic Calvert-Lewin. While the Saints have lost Danny Ings, they have signed Adam Armstrong and they can get at least a point from this clash. Why not take a look at our other Football Acca Tips for a wider choice of alternative Premier League bets.
BEST BET: Southampton +0.5
Leicester City 15:00 Wolverhampton Wanderers
We’re big fans of Leicester and they can follow up that Community Shield win over Man City with a win against their Midlands rivals. Brendan Rodgers might be threadbare in defence although Harvey Barnes looks back to his best and the same can be said of Ricardo Pereira. Wolves are operating under Bruno Lage and might take a while to get going.
BEST BET: Leicester to win
Watford 15:00 Aston Villa
Watford will hope to hit the ground running against a Jack Grealish-less Aston Villa, although Dean Smith has been able to land Emi Buendia and Danny Ings, with both teams capable of finding the net in what should be a game featuring plenty of chances.
BEST BET: BTTS Yes
Norwich City 17:30 Liverpool
Liverpool have Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip back, with the Reds taken to enjoy a convincing win at Carrow Road and they should be able to claim a two-goal margin of victory or bigger. Mo Salah is the most reliable source of goals and Norwich are unlikely to have any answers.
BEST BET: Liverpool -1.5
SUNDAY 15TH AUGUST – Final day of the Premier League GW1
Newcastle United 14:00 West Ham United
West Ham have looked impressive in pre-season, with Said Benrahma and Michail Antonio looking particularly bright for the Hammers who overcame Atalanta in the betway Cup. Newcastle won at the London Stadium in the opener last season but their opponents can get their revenge here.
BEST BET: West Ham
Tottenham Hotspur 16:30 Manchester City
Tottenham might not persuade Harry Kane to play against a club he wants to join, although they have the ability to match a Manchester City side whose main players are only just returning to training. Indeed, this could be a good time for Spurs to be having this fixture, with Son Heung-Min likely to be a thorn in City’s side.
BEST BET: Tottenham +0.5
