Brentford vs. Arsenal

August 14th 5:00am

Arsenal kick starts its Premier League when it travels to Griffin Park to face newly promoted Brentford FC.

The pressure on Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta to climb up the table after finishing eighth last season continues to mount and his task will not be made easy by The Bees. 

Brentford might not have the class factor Arsenal does, but it will have vocal home crowd in its corner as well as the hunger of wanting to prove doubters wrong. 

Arsenal will unveil star off-season signing Ben White in the centreback position. 

Prediction: Brentford 0 Arsenal 2

Suggested Bets:
Arsenal head to head at $1.85
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang anytime goalscorer at $2.2

Manchester United vs. Leeds United

August 14th 9:30pm

Manchester United welcomes Leeds United to Old Trafford for its opening Premier League fixture.

It will be a battle between two of the most entertaining sides in the competition. 

United will be bolstering its squad with the incoming signing of Raphael Varane, but he is likely to miss the opening game of the year. 

Leeds will be dangerous up front with Patrick Bamford likely to cause a threat for this solid United defence, but the Red Devils should prove too classy. 

Prediction: Manchester United 3 Leeds United 1

Suggested Bet: Manhcester United or draw and over 2.5 goals at $1.62

Leicester City vs. Wolverhampton

August 15th 12:00am

The Foxes get their season underway against Wolverhampton as Brendan Rodgers looks to go one better than last season and get his side into the top four.

The Wolves bid farewell Nuno Espirito Santo in the off-season and will be under the watchful of former Benfica manager Bruno Lage. 

Leicester need to be wary of this Wolves team who will be with star striker Raul Jiminez after he suffered an injury interrupted 2020/21 season. 

Predicition: Leicester City 1 Wolverhampton 1

Suggested Bet: Draw at $3.70

Burnley vs. Brighton & Hove Albion

August 15th 12:00am

Sean Dyche and Burnley open their arms to Brighton & Hove Albion when they do battle at Turf Moore on Sunday. 

Burnley survived relegation last year and will be on the hunt to improve their lacklustre season in a bid to survive another year in the Premier League with Brighton looking to achieve identical feats.  

This game will not exactly be one that fans change the channel for unless there are goals galore.

Burnley should be able to get the job done at home and come up a great price to do so. 

Prediction: Burnley 1 Brighton & Hove Albion 0

Suggested Bet: Burnley head to head at $3.10

Watford vs. Aston Villa

August 15th 12:00am

Watford makes is return to the Premier League when goes head to head with Aston Villa at Vicarage Road. 

The Hornets gained promotion after finishing second in The Championship last season and face stiff opposition in Aston Villa who many predicted to be relegated last season. 

Villa will be without Jack Grealish who signed with Manchester City for 100 million UK Pound and that is sure to leave a gaping hole in midfield. 

Tipping the home team to star the season with a bang. 

Prediction: Watford 2 Aston Villa 1

Suggested Bet: Watford head to head at $3.2

Everton vs. SOuthampton

August 15th 12:00am

Rafael Benetiz guides Everton into his first season in charge when they try to open their account against Southampton at Goodison Park.

The Toffees looked a top four chance half way through the year last season, but were unable to keep up the winning momentum going. 

Southampton has shown some solid form in the pre-season and can defintiely cause headaches for Everton especially with the likes of Che Adams and veteran Shane Long. 

Prediction: Everton 1 Southampton 2

Suggested Bet: Southampton head to head at $4

Chelsea vs. Crystal Palace

August 15th 12:00am

Champions League winner Chelsea head into the 2021/11 Premier League and this home game against Crystal Palace brimming with confidence after signing Romelu Lukaku.

The Belgian centre forward is set to cause all sorts of dramas for defences in England all season after a scintillating run of form in Serie A which saw him top the goal scoring charts with Inter Milan. 

Combing Lukaku with Timo Werner has Chelsea right in the hunt for the title. 

No idea how Crystal Palace get a result in this game.

Prediction: Chelsea 3 Crystal Palace 0

Suggested Bet: 
Same Game Multi
Leg 1: Chelsea head to head
Leg 2: T. Werner anytime goalscorer
Combined odds = $2

Norwich City vs. Liverpool

August 15th 2:30am

Norwich City gets a grand old welcome to the Premier League again but is dealt the short straw when it opens the season against Liverpool.

The Reds will be keen to bounce back after failing to defend their 2019/20 crown thanks to a spate of injuries, namely to star centre back Virgil Van Dijk. 

His name back on the team sheet for Liverpool will be a welcomed boost heading into a new season and this should be a winning start for Jurgen Klopp. 

Prediction: Norwich 0 Liverpool 2

Suggested Bet: 
Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Liverpool head to head 
Leg 2: D. Jota anytime goalscorer
Leg 3: M. Salah anytime goalscorer
Combined odds = $3.3

Newcastle United vs. WEst ham United

August 15th 11:00pm

West Ham United will travel to St James Park when it clashes with Newcastle in Match Week 1 of the season. 

There is an air of positivity coming out of the Hammers camp after David Moyes guided them to European football after finishing sixth last season. 

Newcastle, however, will be confident of a home win and it may unveil Joe Willock from Arsenal as their main transfer window signing. 

Tough to spit these teams. 

Prediction: Newcastle United 1 West Ham United 1

Suggested Bet: Draw at $3.4

Tottenham vs. Manchester City

August 16th 1:30am

What a brilliant to end Match Week 1 with reigning Premier League champion Manchester City taking on Tottenham at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

If City looked a near certainty to make it back-to-back league titles this season, it only strengthened its claims by signing star midfielder Jack Grealish. 

It’s not often you see Spurs starting $5.5 at home on the opening day of a league season, but it seems an uphill battle for the home team to get anywhere near this incredible squad. 

Prediction:  Tottenham 1 Manchester City 3

Suggested Bet: Manchester City head to head at $1.60
