Opening Weekend Premier League Tips & EFL Selections

3 min

Brand new season, but the same top analysis and bets from Mark O’Haire and Adrian Clarke

The shortest of off-seasons for our tipping supremos but there’s no rest for the wicked I guess!

Bankroll management is key early doors in the season as the lads are approaching this weekend’s fixtures with caution. Nevertheless, there are some definite bettable angles to potentially exploit.

Brentford vs Arsenal

Adrian likes over 2.5 goals but I felt Mark made a slightly more convincing case for the Bees to get something from their first Premier League fixture. With this selection should Brentford lose by 1 goal we only lose half of our stake.

Recommended Bet – Brentford +0.5/1.0 (1.78)

Man Utd vs Leeds

I overruled Adrian on Friday night’s game but I’m giving him the vote of confidence here. Mark for the record likes Leeds +1.0/1.5 (1.71) if that floats your boat but let’s take the bigger price here.

Recommended Bet – Man Utd to win & Over 2.5 (2.24)

A brand new sign up offer for a brand new season. The little add on of a £5 free acca is a nice little bonus!

Leicester vs Wolves

Mark expects Leicester to get on the scoresheet on Saturday afternoon but has some major reservations on their defensive capabilities:

Recommended Bet – Leicester Wolves BTTS YES (2.1)

Tottenham vs Man City

I’d bet good money that this will not be the last time we bet this exact selection this season. It was a popular one last year also so if it ain’t broke:

Recommended Bet – Man City to win & Under 3.5 goals
