English Premier League Gameweek 3 starts on Saturday, with a big London derby between Manchester City and Arsenal. Apart from the contest at Etihad, we have several more promising matches, and as usual, BetXchange is here to present them all.
Chelsea VS Arsenal
This is labeled as a derby, but in reality, the difference between these two sides is massive. Manchester City is the no.1 contender for winning both the EPL and the UCL, while the Gunners look mediocre with two losses in the opening two events. Plus, the hosts are closing down the deal with Cristiano Ronaldo, which will only increase the euphoria. We really don’t want to waste any of your time here, because the pick is quite obvious.
Pick: Man City 0.25 at BetXchange
Aston Villa VS Brentford
The Villains recovered from an opening defeat with two wins in a row, the last against Barrow in the EFL, 0-6. They are slowly adjusting to life after Jack Grealish and look very solid in the backline. Meanwhile, Brentford didn’t allow a single goal in the first two EPL games. We expect to see a very tough and defensive-minded encounter, with low efficiency.
Pick: Under 2.5 goals 0.85 BetXchange
Brighton VS Everton
The Seagulls are perfect since the start of the campaign, with three wins in three games, scoring twice in each one. Meanwhile, Everton is looking quite solid, posting two wins and a draw, all of those games ending with over 2.5 goals and hits on both ends. Brighton will attack at home, and the Toffees will respond, meaning that goals on both ends of the pitch should be involved.
Pick: Both teams to score 0.95 BetXchange
Newcastle VS Southampton
For us, the magpies are one of the biggest favorites to go down, as they simply didn’t do anything to strengthen their team during this summer. On top of that, Newcastle has three losses n a row. The Saints haven’t been much better, but at least they snapped a point against Man Utd, and then smashed New port in the EFL, 0-8, which is enough of a reason to bet on them winning three points.
Pick: Southampton 1.80 BetXchange
Norwich VS Leicester City
The Canaries have a 0-8 goal difference in the first two EPL games. Leicester, meanwhile, won the Community Shield trophy, defeated the wolves in the first game, only to suffer a horrendous defeat against WAst Ham this Monday night. However, Brendan Rodgers’ boys are far better than their rivals, and we expect to see them winning easy three points.
Pick: Leicester City 0.85 BetXchange
West Ham VS Crystal Palace
Another London derby. The red-hot West Ham United meets Crystal Palace who is without a goal so far. The Eagles do look pale this year, and we don’t believe that the club from Selhurst Park has any chances against the Hammers here.
Pick: West Ham 0.55 BetXchange
Liverpool VS Chelsea
The game of the week. Liverpool and Chelsea square off at Anfield, in the first super-derby of the campaign. Both teams are looking solid, and so far, they know nothing but to win; with clean sheet, we need to add. The defense will be the top priority for both Klopp and Tuchel, and that is why we suggest betting on under 2.5 goals.
Pick: Under 2.5 goals 0.80 BetXchange
Burnley VS Leeds
The clash of two different styles of plays. While the Clarets try to slow the game down and are focused on protecting their own goal, Leeds is constantly attacking. In our opinion, neither side has some sort of an advantage that could be capitalized on, and a draw is the most logical choice.
Pick: Draw 2.5 BetXchange
Wolves VS Manchester United
This is a true test for the Red Devils. Following a draw in Southampton, they head for Molineux, to meet with the struggling Wolves, who are without a goal in the EPL. The pressure is on both teams, but we simply have to give an edge to the guests, who have more quality than Wolverhampton.
Pick: United 0.75 BetXchange
Tottenham VS Watford
So Harry Kane is back, and he already scored on Thursday night in the Conference League match. The Spurs left the majority of the starters on the bench, and they should be ready for the Hornets, who play solid football. Tottenham is the absolute favorite here and anything else, but their victory is a sensation.
Pick: Tottenham 0.36 BetXchange
