Premier League preview: We present our four best bets for the 3pm games on Saturday
We've picked out the best bets ahead of this weekend's Premier League action
September 15th, 2016
Well, what a week it’s been so far with some cracking midweek action from the Champions League and a full evening of Europa League games filling up tonight’s schedule. No time to breathe though as a full line-up of Premier League fixtures awaits this weekend and we bring you what we believe are the stand-out bets for Saturday afternoon’s traditional 3pm kick-off matches.
Hull City v Arsenal – Back Gunners -1 to beat Tigers
Arsenal made a slow start to their Premier League campaign, however they appear to have sprung to life with back-to-back wins over Watford and Southampton. Can they make it three-in-a-row when they make the journey to the KC Stadium this weekend? Arsene Wenger’s men have won their last five matches at Hull and we believe that they will manage a sixth on Saturday. Nevertheless, the Tigers have made a decent start to the season with just one defeat from four games, however the Gunners are enjoying some excellent form at the moment and we believe that the visitors will win this match by a couple of goals.
Leicester City v Burnley – Back Foxes to win against Clarets
With just one win from their opening four matches, Leicester City’s defence of their Premier League title has effectively gone up in smoke, even at this early stage of the campaign. They suffered a shock defeat to Hull City in the opening game of the new season and were thrashed 4-1 by a rampant Liverpool side at Anfield last week. In complete contrast, their first ever appearance in the Champions League saw them wallop Brugge 3-0 and spirits will be high heading into this weekend’s home match against a Burnley side who have lost each of their last two games away from home. Leicester may not be at their best but they should manage to seal the points at the King Power Stadium this weekend.
Manchester City v Bournemouth – Back a City win & BTTS
City sit atop the Premier League, testament perhaps to the efforts of new boss Pep Guardiola who appears to have instilled a winning mentality into a side which fell by the wayside in the 2015/16 Premier League title race. They impressed in the Manchester derby and ran out worthy winners at Old Trafford and it looks as though they will take a bit of stopping this season. Nevertheless the Citizens have been less than secure at the back and with Bournemouth having little difficulty in front of goal since their promotion to the top-flight, we feel that the Cherries can bag themselves a goal in what looks likely to be a home win.
West Bromwich Albion v West Ham United – Back a draw
The Hammers are struggling this season and with no wins from their last three outings they will be desperate to stop the rot before it sets in too deeply. They have lost both of their games away from home this season, although admittedly these were against Chelsea and Man City. West Brom have yet to win at the Hawthorns this term and one could be tempted to back the Hammers to pick up their first points on the road, however we feel that the spoils will be shared in the West Midlands this weekend.
