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.

Brighton v Manchester City Predictions & Betting Odds – 12th August 2017

Premier League Betting
Brighton v Manchester City Betting Preview - Premier League 12th August 5.30pm Welcome to the big leagues, Brighton. The Seagulls get rewarded for their promotion from the Championship last season with just about the toughest home game that they could have gotten. Manchester City are outright favourites to win the Premier League title heading into the new season and with Pep Guardiola spending heavily over the summer, he will be expecting some immediate returns from his investments. Online betting site Coral offers a 10% win bonus on successful football accas.

Brighton v Manchester City Betting Tips

Coming up from the Championship, you would like to ease your way into the new season. But no chance of that for Brighton who steps into battle with this season’s Premier League Champions elect, Man City. Brighton have drafted some new faces into the club, but most of it is unproven quality at this level and they really haven’t added the kind of quality that they may ultimately need to call upon to stay afloat. There is a need for them to do more shopping before the transfer window slams shut because they may well have 34-year-old Glenn Murray as their main striker option this term and while he was prolific in the second tier last term, he can’t be relied upon up in the big step up. The Seagulls were a brilliant home side in the Championship last season, but they are heavy underdogs for this opening fixture on home soil. Both teams not to score is odds on at 7/10 with Coral which shows how little of an impact that the home side are expected to have in this one. Manchester City have Sergio Aguero at 4/6 and Gabriel Jesus at 5/6 in the anytime goalscorer market. There could be a good friendly rivalry between the two of them this season and that should only benefit the Citizens. Man City have been busy in the transfer market, shaking up their back line drastically and the arrival of Bernardo Silva could be one of the signings of the summer for them. City have more of a Guardiola feel about them. There has been a keeper upgrade too with Ederson coming in to replace Claudio Bravo. In the Coral correct score market, you have a price of 11/2 on a Manchester City 2-0 win. The last time that Brighton and City met in the league was in the old Division 2 back in 1989. The only game since then was a Carling Cup draw in 2008. So nothing really to look at there and over 2.5 goals at Coral is a quote of 4/7 as City will be expected to come out firing in this one to send a message to their title rivals.

Brighton v Manchester City Betting Odds

Man City 1/3, Draw 4/1, Brighton 8/1.

Brighton v Manchester City Predictions

Man City to win: The Citizens will be fresh and raring to go and the Brighton defence is probably going to have a busy afternoon. There is so much quality running through the City side now, who have shored up their defence that they can be trusted to get the win and worth a flutter to win to nil as well.

West Brom v Bournemouth Predictions & Betting Odds – 12th August 2017

West Brom
West Brom v Bournemouth Betting Preview - Premier League 12th August 3.00pm Bournemouth will, no doubt turn up and try to play as positive of a game as they possibly can. They won't have too much to fear about meeting the Baggies. However, West Brom are hard to beat at the Hawthorns will want to start positively in front of their home fans. They have won three of their last four at home against the Cherries and this could be one of the games of the opening weekend of the Premier League where goals are at a premium. Bwin run a Protektor insurance offer on Multi Bets in their new feature. With it, you can insurance a number of picks in your Multi bets. So if one or more fails tow in then you will simply get your money back, it’s that simple! Go and make your bets and as soon as you have selected two or more picks you will get the multi bet and Protektor options. Choose how many selections you want to insurance and the Protektor will tell you how much it costs and then places your bet as normal. As long as you have insured as many picks (or more) that have failed, you will get your stake and your PROTEKTOR costs back.

West Brom v Bournemouth Betting Tips

The Baggies have been underwhelming over the summer in the transfer market with no real major moves in or out of the Hawthorns. Generally, they are a hard side to break down and handled themselves very well against sides beneath them in the table last season. They have added burly defender Ahmed Hegazy to their squad and brought in Jay Rodriguez, who doesn’t quite look to be a great fit for their style of play. Rodriguez is a quote of 21/10 in the Bwin anytime goalscorer market with Salomon Rondon at 7/4. The Baggies posted a W9 D2 L8 record at home last season and were dismal down the final stretch, very surprisingly. They just ran out of steam. But they will be looking for a positive fresh start to build on the 2-1 home win they took over the Cherries in last season’s corresponding fixture. From their four previous Premier League games against Bournemouth, West Brom are down W1 D1 L2 in the head to head. Under 2.5 goals at Bwin is a quote of 7/10 which will no doubt have appeal. Jermain Defoe joined up with Bournemouth over the summer on a free transfer from Sunderland, while Lewis Grabban went the other way. Defoe is a 15/8 anytime goalscorer option with Joshua King at 9/4. There really haven’t been any major departures from the club through and they have brought in Nathan Ake and have upgraded in the goalkeeper department by getting Asmir Begovic from Chelsea. In normal Bournemouth fashion, everything has been understated and under the radar from them, but holding on to what they have has been a great boon for them. You can back them to get on the scoresheet at Bwin with a both teams to score punt at 10/11. Up in the Bwin correct score market, you have a price of 11/2 on a 1-1 draw being churned out. What will cast doubt on them is the fact that they won just three times on the road last season in the top flight.

West Brom v Bournemouth Betting Odds

West Brom 7/5, Bournemouth 2/1, Draw 11/5

West Brom v Bournemouth Predictions

West Brom to win: West Brom have edged three one-goal margin victories over the Cherries in their last four home games against them. That’s not a bad trend to go with in this one to see the home side just edge their way to the three points as the Cherries will have to prove themselves to punters on the road.

Everton v Stoke Predictions & Betting Odds – 12th August 2017

Premier League Betting
Everton v Stoke Betting Preview - Premier League 12th August 3.00pm It’s been a fairly busy summer in the transfer market for Everton and they now looked pretty stacked with quality in depth, even with the sale of Romelu Lukaku. The Toffees could be on to a good thing this season and they will be expected to collect maximum points at Goodison Park against the Potters. They have won three of their last four at home against them and with Stoke having been pretty stagnant in the transfer market, the visitors could well struggle on Merseyside. You can collect £5 free bets throughout August thanks to a great Premier League offer that Coral are running. Go and bet at least £10 on any team to win the Premier League Outright and Coral give you a fantastic £5 free bet every time your team wins throughout August. With each Premier League team playing three games this month that is a total of £15 in free bets that you can pick up through this great offer. You will have until 3 pm Saturday 12th August 2017 to make your qualifying bet and it applies only to the first real money win single on the Premier League outright winner market.

Everton v Stoke Betting Tips

It has been quite a productive summer for the Toffees in the summer transfer market. Importantly they got their new players in early to give Ronald Koeman plenty of time to get things together. Even though they rightly couldn’t resist Manchester United’s big offer for Romelu Lukaku, the Toffees look to be in much better shape overall in terms of the quality of their squad and the depth that they have around. Davy Klaassen, Wayne Rooney and Sandro Ramirez, for example, is a nice problem to figure out how to get into the team. Because of participation in the UEFA Europa League, they have had a couple of competitive games under their belt too and Rooney and Ramirez are joint 6/4 anytime goalscorer favourites for this one. In the Coral correct score market, an Everton 2-0 is screaming bags of appeal for their home opener. There have been two wins for both Everton and Stoke in the last four meetings at Goodison Park, but going into this one, Stoke really haven’t done much of anything over the summer in stark contrast to what the Toffees have been up too. They lost pre-season games against St Pauli and to Sheffield United and they have taken some hits in the loss of key personnel as well. The experience of Glenn Whelan and Jon Walters has gone and their top scorer from last season Marko Arnautovic has moved on to West Ham. Nothing has been done to fix the holes, certainly not going forward and they may struggle to make an impact. Will they be able to hold a positive-minded Everton at bay? Everton to win to nil at Coral is looking appealing at 13/8. The Toffees have totalled eight goals in their last four home games against the Potters. They can deliver more of an attacking punch than the visitors can.

Everton v Stoke Betting Odds

Everton 8/13, Draw 11/4, Stroke 9/2

Everton v Stoke Predictions

Everton to win: The Toffees have home form running over the Potters and they look as if they can go better than last season. Their squad looks balanced and the home crowd will help push them on to three points against a Stoke side which may struggle to threaten.

Chelsea v Burnley Predictions & Betting Odds – 12th August 2017

Chelsea
Chelsea v Burnley Betting Preview - Premier League 12th August 3.00pm A comfortable looking opener for Chelsea in their Premier League title defence campaign. The Blues bagged a 3-0 win over the Clarets at the Bridge last season and they will be expected to win this one just as comfortably. It remains to be seen if Chelsea have enough depth to handle the Premier League and the Champions League this season, but they will be expected to open with a victory in this one in front of their home fans. You can collect £5 free bets throughout August thanks to a great Premier League offer that Coral are running. Go and bet at least £10 on any team to win the Premier League Outright and Coral give you a fantastic £5 free bet every time your team wins throughout August. With each Premier League team playing three games this month that is a total of £15 in free bets that you can pick up through this great offer. You will have until 3 pm Saturday 12th August 2017 to make your qualifying bet and it applies only to the first real money win single on the Premier League outright winner market.

Chelsea v Burnley Betting Tips

It is hard to know what to make of Chelsea’s summer. They have made some changes, but they really haven’t added anything to their squad. There have basically been swaps of Diego Costa for Alvaro Morata and Nemanja Matic for Tiemoue Bakayoko. So of concern is the fact that they haven’t added any extra depth and with Champions League football this season, that could end up being quite telling. Plus boss Antonio Conte seems to be a difference of opinion with the board because he wants to sign more players, and he didn’t want to sell off Matic. So all is not quite right but the Blues are favourites here at home in their opener. Chelsea have either won 3-0 or drawn 1-1 in their last four home games against Burnley. In the Coral correct score market, a 3-0 option on the Blues is a fairly short 13/2 price. They are the champions and when they get going, they are still going to be hard to stop. Eden Hazard is still out injured and they missed him at Wembley in the Community Shield. Michy Batshuayi and Alvaro Morata who are joint 8/11 anytime goalscorer favourites for this one. Burnley sold striker Andre Gray to Watford just before the start of the season so that is a bit of a blow for them and it’s hard to see them getting much change out of the Blues in this one. They are the side with the lowest budget in the Premier League and replacing Gray is going to be tough. Plus they have also lost Michael Keane, their star defender over the summer. Last season Burnley posted a bit of a shocking W1 D4 L14 record away from home in the Premier League and there’s really nothing about their pre-season which suggests that they are going to come out swinging. You can go over 2.5 goals at Coral for a price of 4/6 but Chelsea are likely to get there on their own. Chelsea to win to nil is a solid 4/5 punt with Coral for this one.

Chelsea v Burnley Betting Odds

Chelsea 2/9, Draw 5/1, Burnley 11/1

Chelsea v Burnley Predictions

Chelsea to win: The Clarets were very poor on the road last season and will likely fall to the quality that Chelsea have to offer. There is probably going to be value and appeal in Chelsea to win to nil in this home opener for them.

Crystal Palace v Huddersfield Predictions & Betting Odds – 12th August 2017

Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace v Huddersfield Betting Preview - Premier League 12th August 3.00pm The Eagles will be fairly pleased with their opening fixture for the new season as they take on the newly promoted Huddersfield. On their day the Eagles can lay down plenty of attacking threat and that may cause trouble for the Terriers who get a tricky introduction to the top flight. There are going to be plenty of tough away days like this to come over the season. Unibet are offering a Premier League Top Goalscorer promotion for the new season. Go and bet ÂŁ30 on the Premier League Top Goalscorer and every time they score two goals, Unibet will give you a ÂŁ5 Free Bet. If they score a hat-trick, we will give you a ÂŁ10 Free Bet!

Register an account with Unibet and claim a risk-free ÂŁ30 bet as a welcome bonus.

Crystal Palace v Huddersfield Betting Tips

There hasn’t been a great deal of movement from Palace over the summer and that is because they spent a lot in the January transfer window. They have brought in Ruben Loftus-Cheek on load and spent £8 million on Jairo Riedewald. The question really is, does Frank de Boer really has enough of what he wants at the club as he moves them to a 3-4-3 formation? They may turn out to be a very solid attacking side actually if they can get this working. They have the quality of course with Yohan Cabaye and Christian Benteke there who they have managed to hold on to. Benteke is the outright favourite at 6/5 in the Unibet anytime goalscorer market for this one with Wilfried Zaha at 12/5. Each of the last four meetings between Palace and Huddersfield at Selhurst Park have ended in a draw. The last time they were together was in the 2012/13 Championship. A 1-1 correct score option at Unibet returns a good price of 6/1. There could be goals in his one and over 2.5 goals at Unibet is well worth a punt at 11/10. Huddersfield had to make changes over the summer in bolstering their squad and quickly brought in eight new faces including Tom Ince and Steve Mounie. They are expected to end up in a relegation scrap still, but they have given themselves a good chance with the summer moves, of staying afloat. Their head to head form over Palace is pretty good actually as they have lost just one of their last twelve against the Eagles but then there have only been the four games since 2000 and the Terriers are W1 D2 L1 in that so it’s all even there. The exciting Mounie is a 3/1 anytime goalscorer option for them with Elias Kachunga, who they have managed to sign full time, at 4/1. A point wouldn’t be a bad result in this one for them, but Palace are looking set to be an attacking side this term.

Crystal Palace v Huddersfield Betting Odds

Palace 3/4, Draw 5/2, Huddersfield 15/4

Crystal Palace v Huddersfield Predictions

Crystal Palace to win: The Eagles look solid enough to put an opening home win on the board in this one. Huddersfield may take some time to adjust to the pace of the Premier League and Eagles will throw enough at them to get the win.

Southampton v Swansea Predictions & Betting Odds – 12th August 2017

Southampton
Southampton v Swansea Betting Preview - Premier League 12th August 3.00pm It wasn’t a great season out on the road for the Swans last term it has to be said and they are a massive underdog for their trip to St Mary's. Southampton failed to really get any great home form going last season and they will want to correct that this time around. They have form going over the Welsh outfit and they will be expected to find a way to put three points on the board in this home opener and get some early momentum going for themselves.

Southampton v Swansea Betting Tips

The Saints have pretty much stood pat to where they were last season in terms of their squad. Only defender Jan Bednarek has been added to their ranks, but turning that into a positive, the Saints may be happy with their stock. They haven’t lost any of their key players, even though Virgil van Dijk looks to be heading out of the door before the month is out. The Saints failed to deliver the kind of season at home last term that they would have liked and will look to make St Mary's something of a fortress again. Southampton are priced up at 6/4 to win to nil at bet365 for this home opener. On paper, they do have plenty of scoring power in their ranks although it didn’t show up too well last season. Manolo Gabbiadini is there at 6/4, with Charlie Austin at 21/20 and Shane Long at 15/8. The Saints took a 1-0 home win over the Swans last season and they have won three of their last four at home against the Welsh club. A Southampton 1-0 correct score at bet365 is an 11/2 punt. Swansea have lost three of their last four games against Southampton now (W1) so they are trailing the recent head to head. From their five previous Premier League trips down to the South Coast to face the Saints, Swansea have taken a W1 D1 L3 record from that sequence of games. The biggest thing that may come back to hurt them is a lack of depth in the squad and that could get worse if they lose Gylfi Sigurdsson though and Fernando Llorente before the end of the transfer window. The Swans have loaned in Tammy Abraham and Roque Mesa, both of which look like good positive signings. Away from home in the Premier League last season the Swans put a miserable record of W4 D2 L13 on the board and they conceded an average of 1.9 goals per game away from the Liberty. It could be a rough season if they end up losing Sigurdsson and Llorente. There is a price of 3/4 on both teams not to score with bet365 in this one.

Southampton v Swansea Betting Odds

Southampton 4/7, Draw 14/5, Swansea 5/1

Southampton v Swansea Predictions

Southampton to win: We wouldn't be accepting goals to go flying around in this one at St Mary's but the Saints look the better of the two going into the new season. Back the home side to collect a win by a one goal margin only.

Watford v Liverpool Predictions & Betting Odds – 12th August 2017

Liverpool
Watford v Liverpool Betting Preview - Premier League 12th August 3.00pm Watford are actually sat at an appealing price to pull off a win this one but Liverpool have enjoyed such a good summer and have looked a huge threat pouring forward that it’s going to be hard to ignore them. The Reds had their struggles against the lower ranked sides in the league last season, but go as strong favourites to land a win in this one. They have won three of their last four visits to Vicarage Road after all. Online betting site Boylesports are offering a free £2 Scorecast for Watford v Liverpool Betting.

Watford v Liverpool Betting Tips

The Hornets made a big capture over the summer in bringing in Marco Silva. He made such a huge impact for Hull, at least in their home performances last term, that he could pay off in spades for Watford. The Hornets were a bit of an ageing, multinational squad last season but already Silva has started to make changes with the likes of Tom Cleverley, Nathaniel Chalobah and Will Hughes coming in along with Andre Gray. Basically, Watford have a better squad than what Hull had available last season, so they should do fine. Except they don't have a great record against Liverpool. The Hornets have lost three of their last four home games against the Reds, the exception being a 3-0 home win in the Premier League in December 2005. Watford lost home and away against the Reds last season conceding seven goals and conceding just the one. The Hornets have failed to score in five of their last six against the Reds now and there is a price of 13/8 on Liverpool to win to nil at Boylesports. Troy Deeney is an 11/4 anytime goalscorer option with them. Will Liverpool be able to hang on to Philippe Coutinho with Barcelona knocking on the door for him? The Brazilian is an injury doubt for this one anyway because of a back problem that he has been nursing. Daniel Sturridge and Roberto Firmino are 6/4 joint favourites in the goalscorer market for the visitors in this fixture. But last season Liverpool weren’t always convincing at the back against sides beneath them in the table and with a spirited effort from the Hornets, a Both Teams To Score bet at Boylesports is a decent 4/5 punt. Liverpool have scored at least two goals in five of their last six Premier League games against the Hornets and in the Boylesports correct score market, a Liverpool 2-0 correct score is a price of 7/1 while a 2/1 punt is at 8/1.

Watford v Liverpool Betting Odds

Liverpool 8/15, Draw 3/1, Watford 5/1

Watford v Liverpool Predictions

Liverpool to win: Just because Liverpool struggled defensively against sides like Watford last season, it is worth backing both teams to score in this match. Liverpool have enough quality and scoring threat to take the win, but take them on in a Liverpool to win & Both Teams To Score punt for the Vicarage Road clash.

Arsenal v Leicester Predictions & Betting Odds – 11th August 2017

Arsenal
Arsenal v Leicester Betting Preview - Premier League 11th August 7.45pm After their Community Shield success over Chelsea last weekend, the Gunners get to open the Premier League season on Friday night as they play host to Leicester. The Gunners have some good home form running against the Foxes and will be expected to come out of the gates firing on all cylinders. But that hasn't exactly happened in their recent home openers to a new season. Leicester failed to score against the Gunners in the top flight last season but they have bolstered their attack over the summer. Ladbrokes are running a big Premier League special offer at the moment. Go and place a bet of ÂŁ10 or more on the 2017/18 Premier League Top Goalscorer market and in return you will receive a ÂŁ5 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 ÂŁ50 bet as a welcome bonus from them.

Arsenal v Leicester Betting Tips

So Arsenal, for the sixth season on the bounce, gets to start at home in the Premier League. That having been said though, they have not made the most of the home advantage in recent kick offs though going only W1 D1 L3 in their last five starts. So that only suggests that they don’t handle the pressure very well in front of their own crowd with expectations high at the start of the season. But with Alexandre Lacazette coming in over the summer to bolster their attack and with them holding onto Alexis Sanchez they should be pretty positive in this one. Lacazette is 5/6 outright favourite in the Ladbrokes anytime goalscorer market on his Premier League debut with Sanchez at 10/11 and Olivier Giroud at 21/20. Arsenal won the Community Shield over Chelsea on the weekend via a penalty shootout following a 1-1 draw. The Gunners do have great form against Leicester in the Premier League. They are on a ten match winning streak at home against the Foxes in the top flight. Overall home and away they are unbeaten since an away 1994 Premiership clash with Leicester. So overall that is a 23 match unbeaten streak of form against the Foxes that Arsenal are on in all competitions (W14 D9). So clear ascendancy with the Gunners then and because defences won’t be at their sharpest, it’s always worth expecting goals in opening fixtures before defences really find their feet and both teams to score at Ladbrokes is a price of 4/6. Last season the Gunners won all of their games at the Emirates against sides who ended up in the middle third of the Premier League table. Leicester lost this fixture last season 1-0 thanks to an 86th minute own goal from defender Robert Huth. So they made the Gunners work and a Draw/Leicester half time/full-time bet at Ladbrokes may have appeal at a price of 10/3. Leicester were very poor away from home in the Premier League last term only managing to put two victories on the board away from the King Power. They made a big summer signing in getting striker Kelechi Iheanacho from Man City and he could give them a great boost up front. He is a price of 12/5 in the anytime goalscorer market with Jamie Vardy at 2/1 and Islam Slimani at 3/1. The Foxes failed to find the net in either game against Arsenal last season but have the pace to trouble the Gunners' defence with some direct stuff. In the Ladbrokes correct score market, an Arsenal 2-1 result is the shortest priced option at 8/1.
