Liverpool v West Ham West Ham 50 Win @ 10   Win 450 

"I know I will probably made to look silly with this tip backing a West Ham win at Anfield but I think Liverpool have been uninspiring so far, they might have been unbeaten without conceding in any of their 3 games played so far but that will not last for very long, I think their problem is that they have only scored 2 goal is 3 games! 1 against Stoke and Bournemouth. If they can't score more goals they will not win too many games.

West Ham after an amazing away win 0-2 against Arsenal in the opening game they have not had great results, but they might spring another surprise here and land us with a huge profit.

I think @10 is definitely worth a small punt. "

Tottenham v Everton Everton 50 Win @ 4.2   Lose (50)

"I think this game is not that far away from being very evenly matched at the moment and so @4.2 I'm backing Lukaku and .co to produce the winning performance at the better price.

Everton might have played a League Cup game against Barnsley midweek but they did score 5 goals in that game with Naismith, Mirallas and Lukaku all getting on the score-sheet. And I also think that conceding 3 against Barnsley will also make them work harder in defence against Spurs. "

Arsenal v Liverpool Arsenal 50 Win @ 1.75   Lose (50)

"Arsenal has far superior individual talent from midfield to attack much more creative players and at home I fancy they'll want to make a statement of intent against Liverpool who do look like they are counting on their defensive solidity to get the results so far.

I like the look of Arsenal's possible starting line up much more than Liverpool's and at home the bookies have fairly prices them accordingly @1.75 short price but I think it's fair. "

Arsenal v Liverpool Yes (Both Teams to Score) (BTTS) 50 Win @ 1.83   Lose (50)

"This has the making to be an open game with chances coming from both sides.

Even though Liverpool has 2 clean sheets from 2 games played those came against Bournemouth and Stoke, can they keep an other against Arsenal? I doubt it.

Arsenal didn't manage a clean sheet against Crystal Palace and West Ham. "

Arsenal v Liverpool Arsenal & Yes (Result and BTTS) (Result + BTTS) 50 Win @ 3.75   Lose (50)

"I think it's tough one to call with much confidence. I think Arsenal is rightly the favourite but they didn't kept a clean sheet against either Crystal Palace or West Ham, can they keep a clean sheet against Liverpool who has scored in each of their two games played?

Liverpool has won both their games 1-0 but today is a step up in class against Arsenal away and I think the clean sheet streak will come to an end with a bang. "

Corinthians v Cruzeiro Corinthians 50 Win @ 1.95   Win 48 

"The league leaders Corinthians welcome 14th on the table and current champions Cruzeiro. That's why the odds are very generous for a home win @1.95, if you consider current form this looks like a home win nearer the @1.5 mark.

Corinthians are unbeaten in the league in 11 matches winning 8 of them, while at home they have 7 straight wins! Cruzeiro has not won any of their last 6 away games losing 5 of them but even more crucially they haven't scored in any of those 6 matches!

Corinthians are coming from a loss in the cup and they'll be very determined to return to winning ways. "

Everton v Man City Man City 50 Win @ 1.8   Win 40 

"Man City have a great advantage and motivation factor today, they play just after Chelsea and they will know the result of that game. No matter what Chelsea do, Man City has to be looking to maintain their 100% record and be the team that everyone else is hunting down.

Everton will be looking to continue their scoring run and trouble Man City's defence, but I don't think they'll have what it's needed to stop Man City's attacking force. "

Watford v Southampton Yes (Both Teams to Score) (BTTS) 50 Win @ 1.85   Lose (50)

"Both teams will be seeing this game as a can and must win to get their winning account open for the new season. I expect an open game with both teams looking to attack and score goals. I think both teams will be open to counter attacks and plenty of chances from both sides are expected. "

West Brom v Chelsea Chelsea 50 Win @ 1.62   Win 31 

"Put simply Chelsea has to turn up in this game! Firstly the hey can't go three games without a win. And also Man City playing in the later kick-off will know Chelsea's result and will effect them in their performance and motivation to get their 3 points.

Chelsea will have too much in attack for West Brom and I can see them putting in a good attacking performance and scoring a few goals. "

Man Utd v Newcastle Man Utd 50 Win @ 1.36   Lose (50)

"Newcastle's defence is letting them down continuously and today at the Old Trafford they'll find it very tough if they are to turn their defensive lines to higher standards.

Man Utd had a moral boosting win on Tuesday in the UCL play-offs round 3-1 1st leg home win against a very good Belgian outfit Club Brugge.

I think Newcastle will play better later in the season than they currently play, but I think they will be lucky or Man Utd very bad if there is going to be anything other than a home win here. Newcastle have Janmaat suspended with a red card and Sissoko is a doubt picking up a groin injury last time out. "

Middlesbrough v Bristol City Middlesbrough 50 Win @ 1.61   Lose (50)

"Middlesbrough are fairly priced hot odds-on favourites and in the form they are in, if they don't win this game it will be a big set-back. They are unbeaten from their first three games and against a struggling Bristol City from the wrong end of the table, this looks as a very good bet to add to our accumulator bet.

Middlesbrough have conceded 1 goal from their 3 games played while Bristol City have conceded 8! "

QPR v Rotherham QPR 50 Win @ 1.8   Win 40 

"QPR must be feeling great after their impressive comeback to win from 2-0 down away to Wolves to win 2-3. They have plenty of goals in their team and Rotherham don't - Rotherham have scored just 2 goals from 3 games played.

This is a home game were QPR have to collect all three points and the odds @1.8 are very tasty and deserve picking. "

Reading v Milton Keynes Dons Milton Keynes Dons 50 Win @ 3.6   Lose (50)

"Reading are under pressure to win a game. They have played 3 and are still without a win 2D 1L, while MK Dons have 2W 1L. Reading hasn't faced any of the big guns so far and they still cant get a win.

MK Dons create plenty of chances and have goals in their team as they showed in the opening game of the season beating Rotherham 1-4 away from home.

I think @3.6 this game is a good betting opportunity and I'll be having a flutter. "

Wycombe v Dag & Red Wycombe 50 Win @ 1.67   Lose (50)

"2nd in the very early table Wycombe welcome bottom of the table Dag & Red. The extremes of the form tables, Wycombe has won their three opening fixtures scoring 6 and conceding 0! while Dag & Red have lost all their three fixtures scoring 2 and conceding 8!

Wycombe missed out on automatic promotion last season by a single point and I think so far this season they look like a team fully determined not to slip up in any banana skins. They returning home after two consecutive away and they will be determined to show their home fans that they mean business this season. "

Liverpool v Bournemouth Liverpool 50 Win @ 1.45   Win 22 

"I really don't like the odds here.. Liverpool is too short and Bournemouth could be longer. But if I have to chose a result here I have to get on Liverpool. This is the first home game for Liverpool this season and I expect themto put in a bit extra in their effort for a top performance.

Bournemouth will not be a pushover and I expect a top performance by them also, but here I have to bet with my head which is screaming Liverpool. "

Crystal Palace v Arsenal Yes (Both Teams to Score) (BTTS) 50 Win @ 1.85   Win 43 

"I expect a highly entertaining game in this one with plenty of goals. Palace have goals in them and as we saw even last week the Arsenal defence is not watertight and especially in a game they have to see as a must win, I expect Palace will find spaces and will manage to score goals.

Arsenal of course have major threats in attack even if they failed to score in their opening game against West Ham I have to expect that they'll find the way to score at least a goal. "

Crystal Palace v Arsenal Crystal Palace 50 Win @ 5.5   Lose (50)

"I think if Arsenal don't start the game the way they have planed they might get a bit too desperate and start chasing the game. Arsenal is a flowing team and like to control the rhythm, if Palace have a good start the dynamics of the game will not be as expected by the phonebook. Palace had a very good win away to Norwich last week and as we saw in their 1-3 away win at Sunderland, Norwich is not a pushover.

Arsenal will see this game as a must win and I think they can be caught out if in desperation mode. Arsenal last season lost away from home to Southampton, Swansea and Stoke.

Palace beat Man City, Tottenham and Liverpool at home last season and I think if they have a good game they can spring a surprise again today. "

Man City v Chelsea Draw 50 Win @ 3.6   Lose (50)

"Both league games between them last season ended 1-1 I can see another draw here today. Mourinho's Chelsea is the masters of 'don't lose' games and I think they will go at the Etihad Stadium with this mentality as plan 'A'. Similarly Man City of course will want to get the home win against their biggest title rival but I also think they will need to protect their defence and look not to lose as their plan 'A'.

If I was pushed to chose a winner I'd definitely go for City win, but I think Chelsea will be good enough to scrap a draw. "

Southampton v Everton Southampton 50 Win @ 1.95   Lose (50)

"This game might be closer than most people expect it to be a Southampton win. Everton have a good team and a great manager but I still think Southampton will manage to win this one way or another. Everton have problems in front of goal and against a super tight defence like Southampton I think Everton will find it extremely tough in attack. Southampton have played Europa league qualifiers and must be in better fitness level. "

Sunderland v Norwich Norwich 50 Win @ 2.9   Win 95 

"I think Sunderland will be the target of all teams to get wins against, and even in the away games they will be the main target for away wins. Sunderland have no credible resistance in defence and their attack is not that much to worry about, so I think Norwich as the newly promoted team will be targeting this match big time!

Sunderland will be under pressure to perform against Norwich and should present some resistance but I feel the value is with Norwich to add to Sunderland's problems. "

Swansea v Newcastle Swansea 50 Win @ 1.95   Win 48 

"Swansea's confidence will be high following the 2-2 away draw against Chelsea and they'll be looking to build on that magnificent result and get a win today.

Newcastle will be in for a tough day and although I think they have a chance for a positive result I think the smart money have to be with confident Swansea at home win. "

Tottenham v Stoke Tottenham 50 Win @ 1.75   Lose (50)

"Short odds but I think they are justified for today's match. Spurs had a good game against Man Utd in the opening game of the season, but the defeat is worrying because they should have done more to get a positive result from a good performance.

Having said that I think Spurs with home advantage will need to get their winning account open in this game where they have a fully fit team and against Stoke who have some major absentees most notably Ryan Shawcross and Xherdan Shaqiri.

People are saying Harry Kane will probably not have the same season like the one just gone, but until I see evidence I have to think that he is a major threat in Spurs attack. "

Watford v West Brom Watford 50 Win @ 2.2   Lose (50)

"Watford has been made the clear favourites to win and in my mind that says plenty about the state that both teams are in at the moment.

Watford's first home game in the big league they will be desperate for a win and against West Brom they have to see this game as a must win and anything else will be disappointing.

West Brom will be a lot better than they were against Man City but I think because they also will be expecting a win as a must from this game I think they will not be as compact as it probably will be required in defence and Watford will find spaces to exploit. "

West Ham v Leicester West Ham 50 Win @ 2.29   Lose (50)

"West Ham beat Arsenal 0-2 at the Emirates six days ago.. they have to be in great form, fitness level, confidence etc, etc.. I can't expect a big dip in their performance today against Leicester who did get a 4-2 home win against uninspiring Sunderland.

This game might be a draw but I have to give a big edge to West Ham following their magnificent 0-2 win against Arsenal, and @2.29 I'm willing to be on their side today at home. "

West Brom v Man City Man City 50 Win @ 1.67   Win 34 

"I believe yesterday's Chelsea's draw will have an influence in Man City's performance tonight.

West Brom have confirmed a new signing which brakes the club's record 12 million pounds. Striker Salomon Rondon from Zenit St Petersburg and apparently is eligible for tonight.

But still I think a super motivated Man City will be hard to contain tonight. I can't see Man City missing this opportunity to start distancing themselves from Chelsea. "

Arsenal v West Ham West Ham 50 Win @ 15   Win 700 

"I changed my mind about this bet! I was writing comment for an Arsenal win and that even the odds are short I find it difficult to oppose home win. But.. West Ham have something to prove and make a statement of intent, they crushed in an undignified manner from the Europa league, but that sais to me, they are wounded and dangerous! the EPL is totally different kettle of fish. I think they have already played 6 competitive games and that has to be an advantage in terms of fitness. New signing Dimitri Payet last season created 135 chances for Marseille, the highest figure in the top five European leagues! I value Slaven Bilic as a manager and I think with a bit of luck they can shock a few today against Arsenal. Arsenal without Sanchez is a different animal. Obviously long shot but I think worth a small punt. "

Newcastle v Southampton Southampton 50 Win @ 2.75   Lose (50)

"The Saints hit the ground running with a convincing qualification in the Europa league thrashing Vitesse 5-0 on aggregate. Again most people don't expecting much from them this season and I think they could surprise once again.

Newcastle have to go all out for the win here and the Saints have what it takes to pick them off. Newcastle's goalkeeper Tim Krul has a lot more bad games than good and I think Soton will target him and should make him to work hard today. "

Chelsea v Swansea Swansea 50 Win @ 11   Lose (50)

"Yes of course Chelsea are the rightly hot favourites to win this game but @1.4 I think the bookies have priced it to entice a few punters to put their money on as great value, but I think Swansea are capable to get a good result and don't lose this game.

@11 I think is a very good bet to hunt the huge profit in this opening game for both teams.

It seams to me that Chelsea is playing with fire far too often by doing just enough to get the win, and at @11 must worth a small punt that Swansea can upset the odds.

Records are meant to be broken and Mourinho's opening day 100% record will be broken at some point and I'm having a small punt that it will be in this one. "

Everton v Watford Watford 50 Win @ 5.4   Lose (50)

"Newly promoted side Watford will be buzzing with excitement for their opening game in this new EPL season, and I think they worth a small punt for an upset here.

Everton is rightly the favourites but even the bookies haven't priced them as a banker @1.8.

I simply think the newly promoted side will be putting in an extra bit of effort in this game and because of that and the price @5.4 I think its a great bet for us punters. "

Leicester v Sunderland Draw 50 Win @ 3.6   Lose (50)

"This has draw written all over it. Both teams will be very keen to attack and win this game but I also expect both teams to be looking to keep things very tight at the back, expecting a low scoring game the defenses will be key and one goal could settle it.

I have no confidence in both managers and I think its down to the players to perform for their teams.

Leicester have a very good goalkeeper in Kasper Schmeichel and if he doesn't have a bad game I expect goal shy Sunderland to find it tough to pass him.

Sunderland were the draw specialists last season (17 draws!) and did very well defensively in away games against all teams that finished 8th or lower, including a 0-0 against Arsenal and Liverpool. "

Man Utd v Tottenham Tottenham 50 Win Bet of the Day @ 6   Lose (50)

"The first game of the new EPL. There are many unknowns and many gaps to fill-in in our evaluation of the new look teams. Put it simply the price @6 for an away win in this one is too high and in my book this is an excellent bet.

Man Utd have plenty of new players that need time to gel, they will be without De Gea who was last season's outstanding player. No Di Maria who was the player I looked at first to see if he was available to play, it was a huge factor for my predictions. No Schweinsteiger, Rojo, Fellaini and Hernandez.

Spurs have brought in reinforcements for their defence and other than that they have more or less last season's team and will be more settled in their positions. "

Norwich v Crystal Palace Crystal Palace 50 Win @ 3   Win 100 

"Palace were superb last season away from home and only lost 2 away game against teams who finished 5th or lower, including 7 wins! They have to fancy their chances again newly promoted Norwich.

Norwich will be super exited to be back in the big league but that might work against them in this 1st home game against a team which their fans will expect a win and an attacking performance. If that is the case and Norwich attack from the off then Palace is more than capable to pick them off and get the away win. "
