Manchester United v West Ham Predictions & Betting Odds – 13th August 2017

West Ham
Manchester United v West Ham Betting Preview - Premier League 13th August 4.00pm Manchester United go into their home opener as strong odds-on favourites to take down the Irons. But they have had their struggles in seeing off West Ham in recent home games against the London club, having won just one of their last four at Old Trafford against them. But United look stronger going into this season and Romelu Lukaku has a great scoring record against West Ham. But the Hammers themselves have done a bit of shopping in the off-season that may make them stronger going forward. Boost accumulator returns through Bet365’s 100% Euro Soccer bonus.

Manchester United v West Ham Betting Tips

The Red Devils have brought in a new goal scoring threat in the form of Romelu Lukaku and have bolstered their defensive midfield position by getting Nemanja Matic from Chelsea. Why the Premier League champions sold him to a rival is baffling. But that’s a win for United and going back to Romelu Lukaku he is going to be expected to bring the goals for United and he has scoring form against West Ham. Lukaku has scored seven goals in ten appearances against West Ham before. The Belgian is a price of 11/4 in the bet365 First Goalscorer market and he is 8/11 in the anytime goalscorer market. United lost only once on home soil in last season’s Premier League, but they have had their struggled in beating West Ham at Old Trafford recently. United have gone W1 D3 in their last four on home soil against the Hammers and the last two in the Premier League between them there have ended in a draw. In the correct score market at bet365, a 1-1 draw is a price of 10/1 while the shortest priced option to consider is a Man Utd 2-0 at 11/2. Manchester United’s recent head to head record against West Ham in all competitions home and away reads W3 D4 L1. Since losing a shock opener in the 2014/15 season against Swansea, the Red Devils have won their last two opening games of a new season, beating Spurs a couple of seasons ago and then Bournemouth last term. West Ham then have drawn three of their last four visits to Old Trafford in all competitions. They have added attacking variety and depth having brought in Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez and they have added Marko Arnautovic from Stoke. The Hammers failed to get going lats season at all and boss Slaven Bilic was under pressure. But he got them safe and held onto his job but overall the Hammers will be hoping for a lot better this time around. Both teams to score at bet365 is a price of 11/10 which has some appeal. There's no reason why they can’t cause United problems, especially in the air and both teams have scored in five of the last six meetings. The Hammers went W5 D5 L9 away from home last season.

Manchester United v West Ham Betting Odds

Manchester United 3/10, Draw 19/4, West Ham 11/1

Manchester United v West Ham Predictions

Manchester United to win: The Hammers have done well in recent visits to Old Trafford, but the Red Devils will be hungry to get flying out of the gates in this one. They should have enough in the tank to get the win on the board, but look for both teams to score in the match.

Newcastle v Tottenham Predictions & Betting Odds – 13th August 2017

Tottenham
Newcastle v Tottenham Betting Preview - Premier League 13th August 4.00pm How much will the fact that Spurs haven’t been spending like the other title contenders have been doing over the summer, be an effect for this one? Probably not much. Spurs have such a quality squad in their ranks that they are odds on favourites to win this regardless. Newcastle are back in the top flight having spent just the one season down in the Championship, but this is a tough old opener for them, even on home soil as they take on the classy Lilywhites. Ladbrokes are running a big Premier League special offer at the moment. Go and place a bet of £10 or more on the 2017/18 Premier League Top Goalscorer market and in return you will receive a £5 free bet for each Premier League goal that they score through the month of August. This offer will run through to 3 pm on Saturday, 12th of August so there is time to get your bet down. It will apply only to your first bet on the 2017/2018 Top Premier League Goalscorer market. Register an account with online betting site Ladbrokes and earn a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus from them.

Newcastle v Tottenham Betting Tips

Rafa Benitez wanted to stick with Newcastle, despite relegation, to prove that he could get them back up to the top flight at the first time of asking. He did just that as the Magpies pipped Brighton on the final day of the season to win the Championship. But there is no doubt that they are going to have to improve to really compete back up in the top flight because life there is a different kettle of fish. Spurs are head and shoulders above the Magpies in terms of class and quality. But the Toon have a couple of players in the attack like Dwight Gayle and Aleksandar Mitrovic to suggest that they could be worth backing by having a punt on to at least get on the scoresheet. Both teams to score is a price of 3/4 with Ladbrokes. Winning though is probably a different thing but this could be a good open game. You probably remember back on the final day of the 2014/15 season which was the last meeting between these two. Despite going down anyway, Newcastle hammered off a 5-1 victory, with ten men as well, over Spurs. That loss meant that Spurs failed to finish above arch rivals Arsenal, adding salt into their wounds having already failed to catch Leicester in the title race. Spurs had 61% of possession in that game. The Magpies won both games against Spurs that season in the Premier League and things are actually pretty even between them in recent Premier League head to heads. In the last ten meetings between them, Newcastle are W5 D1 L4 against the Lilywhites, but Spurs have won two of their last three at St James Park in the league. Over 2.5 goals at Ladbrokes is a price of 4/5 and that looks some decent value. Do Spurs have seemed reluctant to spend in the summer, which can be taken one of two ways. Either why haven't they improved a squad which wasn't good enough to land the title last season, or why spend just for the sake of spending? Just before the new season kick-off though Mauricio Pochettino said that he was sure that some transfers were going to happen before the end of the window. Tottenham posted a W9 D6 L4 record away from home last season and they conceded only the 17 goals out on the road in their nineteen games. Going forward they were potent as they averaged over two goals per game away from home last season. Harry Kane, of course, is going to be the main source of goals for them and he is a price of 8/11 in the anytime goalscorer market and he is a 13/5 Ladbrokes First Goalscorer favourite. Will their class shine through on Tyneside?

Newcastle v Tottenham Betting Odds

Tottenham 7/10, Draw 3/1, Newcastle 9/2

Newcastle v Tottenham Predictions

Tottenham to win: You would have to expect Tottenham to come out on top in this one. Newcastle won the championship last season but this is a huge step up in the quality of opposition that they are facing in this one. Spurs are powerful enough to claim the victory.

Boylesports offer Man Utd v West Ham free £2 scorecast bet

Boylesports
Manchester United get their Premier League campaign under way in what is the final game of the opening weekend of the new Premier League season on Sunday. Manchester United had to play an extra game on Tuesday as they lost against Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup, so they get a little extra rest. United have won only one of their last four at home against the Hammers and will be hoping that Romelu Lukaku hits the ground running in front of goal. Lukaku has seven goals in ten appearances against the Hammers. West Ham have collected a draw in three of their last four visits to Old Trafford, which is a pretty solid record there. The Hammers have brought Joe Hart in and they have bolstered their attack significantly in bringing in Marko Arnautovic and former Manchester United man Javier Hernandez. Will the Hammer be able to make an impact in this one? Place a first goalscorer and correct score on the Manchester United v West Ham game and get a free scorecast on your selections from Boylesports! All customers can take advantage of this.

Acca prime time at Bet365 on opening weekend of season

Premier League Betting
There is nothing like flying out of the gate with a nice acca win on the opening weekend of a new Premier League season. Teams are fresh and plenty of money has been splashed out over the summer transfer market and the excitement levels, expectation and optimism are through the roof. Not too surprisingly there are some heavy odds-on favourites at bet365 across some of the matches and Arsenal, Chelsea, Man City, Liverpool, Spurs and Man Utd are all under even money to win their respective opening fixtures. Arsenal are favourites to land a home win over Leicester on Friday night, the opening game of the new Premier League season. They have won their last ten on the bounce on home soil against the Foxes, so it’s easy to see why they have gained strong support in this one. Plus they have Alexandre Lacazaette and the hotshot has been trimmed this week to win the Premier League Golden Boot. With the Foxes struggling so badly on the road last season, this could be a good opener for the Gunners. Chelsea, who are the reigning champions will be happy enough with their home fixture against Burnley. The Clarets have seen key players depart the club in the summer like Andre Gray and there hasn’t been anything going back the other way, so the Blues should find themselves comfortable in his one and perhaps it will be a fine old day for Alvaro Morata to open his Premier League account after his move from Real Madrid. Chelsea are 1/4 odds on to win this one. Manchester City, with all their big summer signings, head off to the south coast late on Saturday evening to take on Brighton. The newly promoted Seagulls would have liked an easier introduction into the Premier League no doubt, but they have a tough game here. Manchester City are 17/10 outright favourites to win the Premier League at Bet365 and they are odds on at 4/11 to go and beat the Seagulls. Manchester City looks far stronger starting this season than they did last term. Tottenham doesn't seem to be slightly bothered about not having matched their title rivals in spending over the summer. They appear to be happy with their stock and they head out on the road on the opening weekend to face the newly promoted Newcastle. This is a tough game for the Magpies against a Spurs side who can destroy teams when they hit the ground running. Then Manchester United and Liverpool are the other odds-on favourites for this weekend’s opening action, but they perhaps both look a little more vulnerable. Liverpool have won four of their last nine away games in the top flight and have a tough opener at Vicarage Road against Watford. The Hornets appear to have sharpened up very well over the summer under new boss Marco Silva and should be very competitive. Manchester United have won just one of their last four at Old Trafford against West Ham, who they entertain on Sunday in the final game of the first weekend. The Hammers have brought in Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic to boost their attack too, so they may be able to heap a bit of pressure on the Red Devils. So if you are considering an acca this weekend on the Premier League, why not try and get a win bonus on top for your efforts. The 100% Euro Soccer bonus product that is available at online betting site Bet365 gives punters the chance to earn extra from successful accumulator bets.

Man City still trading strong at Bet365 for Premier League title

Premier League Betting
The new season of the Premier League is right here now with the big kick off on the weekend, and it gets an early start on Friday night for Arsenal v Leicester. There have been some big money deals splashed around by the big clubs as they not only prepare of course for an assault on the Premier League title but also because of UEFA Champions League and Europa League interests as well. While Manchester United made a lot of big waves with their summer signing of Romelu Lukaku, it is Manchester City who perhaps have gained the biggest advantage in the off season. The Citizens clearly mean business this term and the squad is looking more like a Pep Guardiola type of squad. They have boosted their goalkeeping by bringing in Brazilian Ederson and have added Kyle Walker, Danilo and Benjamin Mendy to their squad and everyone seems to be pretty hyped up about the arrival of midfield Bernardo Silva too. With the goal scoring competition between Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus likely to go down, Man City look in pretty good shape. Manchester City are 17/10 at Bet365 to win the Premier League and punters have really gotten behind them. It is surprising that Manchester United have not done any better than sitting as joint 7/2 favourites ahead of the new season with reigning champions Chelsea. The Blues have not actually added to the depth of their squad this season over the summer and with the extra exertions of UEFA Champions League games, they aren’t likely going to be as dominant this time around under Antonio Conte on the domestic front. Manchester United will look to the goals of Romelu Lukaku and they have brought Nemanja Matic from Chelsea, who many thinks could be the final piece of the puzzle for Jose Mourinho. But punters haven’t been overly keen on them and indeed, on the day that they signed Matic, they drifted a little bit in the Premier League outright winner market. But it is those three who are the frontrunners for the title if the odds are right. No-one else is trading under double figures. Tottenham are 10/1 at Bet365 to land the title and after a summer of not spending any money to add to a squad which wasn’t good enough to win the title last year seems strange. But the pressure is perhaps mounting and in a bit of a change of heart, boss Mauricio Pochettino is now hopeful of getting some signings in before the end of the window. With Arsenal and Liverpool sitting at an even bigger price of 12/1 apiece it is pretty clear who punters are leaning on this season in the Premier League title race. They are putting a lot of trust in Guardiola and the fantastic signings he has made over the summer.

Boylesports Watford v Liverpool free £2 scorecast bet!

Boylesports
New Watford boss Marco Silva will be hoping to get life at Vicarage Road off with a bang as they play host to Liverpool on Saturday. Silva did a fantastic job with Hull on home soil last season when he came in to take over, will he do the same for the Hornets? Watford have lost three of their last four home games against Liverpool, but they have looked pretty solid over the summer under their new boss. Liverpool are battling to hold on to Philippe Coutinho and they may be distracted by Champions League action coming up on Tuesday. But they have tremendous scoring power in them and they had a decent enough summer as well. The Reds were stacked with goals last season and have it in them to destroy defences, but last season they did struggle at times to get the better of sides beneath them in the table. This could be a very interesting clash. Place a first goalscorer and correct score on the Watford v Liverpool game and get a free scorecast on your selections from Boylesports! All customers can take advantage of this. Just place a pre-live £5 first goalscorer bet and a pre-live £5 correct score on the Watford v Liverpool game and then receive a £2 free scorecast on the same game. A minimum stake of £5 is required for each qualifying bet. You will receive a free bet in the form of a £2 scorecast automatically placed on your selections. In-Play selections will not qualify for the offer. One free bet per customer per match. Your scorecast will be paid out within 24 hours of the match being settled.

Huddersfield 4/6 favourites to suffer relegation from Premier League

Huddersfield
Even though the summer transfer window is still open, and there will be a bit of time through the month of August to fill any obvious gaps that appear, it’s not likely that the teams who are most likely going to be facing relegation this season will be that active. That having been said, Brighton have splashed out a club record on Colombian winger Izquierdo to boost their chances of staying up. That’s really the smartest bit of business they have done because the other players that have come in really haven’t added top-tier quality. Any side that gets promoted to the Premier League is always going to be massively vulnerable and the Seagulls are 6/5 at bet365 to get relegated this season straight back down. Huddersfield though are the 4/6 odds on favourites to suffer the drop this season. But then, none of the newly promoted clubs have done better preparation work to try and survive the new season than Huddersfield have. They have gone big in bolstering their squad to try and ensure survival. Whether or not it pays off remains to be said, but at least they are likely to be more competitive off the bat that they were looking when they go promotion. Sandwiching Huddersfield and Brighton in the Premier League relegation market at bet365 is Burnley. The Clarets could have a huge struggle on their hands this season and just ahead of the start of the new season they sold off striker Andre Gray to Watford. Burnley don't have a big budget at all and with star defender Michael Keane having gone to Everton, there are gaps and weakness in the squad that aren’t likely to be filled and they look under huge pressure this season.

Premier League Relegation Odds at Bet365

Huddersfield 4/6, Burnley 5/4, Brighton 6/5, Watford 7/4, Swansea 2/1, Newcastle 7/2, Crystal Palace 5/1, West Brom 6/1, Stoke 6/1, Bournemouth 6/1, West Ham 9/1, bar 14/1. Stoke have received a lot of action in the bet365 Premier League relegation market and boss Mark Hughes is one of the favourites to be the first manager to leave his post this season. The Potters only managed to beat one team above them at home last season and they don’t meet anyone who finished beneath them last season at the Bet365 Stadium until the beginning of December. So they could have a really tough start to the season that could be hard to recover from. They have been really slack on the transfer side of things in the summer too. Of those shorter than the 6/1 price on the Potters, Palace look as if they will probably have enough in the tank to be safe, Watford should be a bigger price than the 7/4 on them with Marco Silva having taken over at the club and Newcastle will likely do enough on home soil to ensure that the don’t drop straight back to the Championship. So perhaps it is Swansea, particularly if they happen to lose Gylfi Sigurdsson and Fernando Llorente before the close of the transfer window, who could end up being in heaps of trouble. As part of their great football betting services, Bet365 offer 0-0 bore draw insurance on all matches which offers great protection on your pre-match correct score, scorecast or half-time/full-time wagers. There are great each-way first goalscorer odds to be taken as well and you can enjoy extensive live in-play football betting as well as live streams from some of Europe’s top leagues. You can also boost accumulator returns through Bet365’s 100% Euro Soccer bonus.
