Liverpool and Burnley gets us underway in Match Week 2 of the Premier League. 

The best bets for each game this weekend are now live and ready to go!

Liverpool vs. Burnley

August 21st 9:30pm

Liverpool seeks to continue its winning start to the season when it faces Burnley at Anfield.

The Reds scored a 3-0 victory against Norwich City on Match Week 1 with Diojo Jota and Mohammed Salah finding the scoresheet. 

Burnley, meanwhile, suffred a 2-1 defeat at home against Brighton & Hove Albion and look one of the teams likely to in relegation battle. 

Jurgen Klopp will ensure his men are on the ball for this one, especially if his counterpart Sean Dyche parks the proverbial bus. 

Prediction: Liverpool 2 Burnley 0

Suggested Bets:
Total goals scored under 2.5 at $2.45

Manchester City vs. Norwich

August 22nd 12:00am

The signing of Jack Grealish was not enough to get Manchester City over the line against Tottenham and now it pays its attention to Norwich.

There is no doubt The Canaries will go into this one massive underdogs, but the lack of a striking option for City up front might make this tougher than it looks. 

Kevin De Bruyne will likely assume his starting role in midfield, but this game is not as straight forward as many would think. 

Going with a bit of an upset result here. 

Prediction: Manchester City 1 Norwich City 1

Suggested Bet: Draw or Norwich City and under 2.6 at $6

Crystal Palace vs. Brentford

August 22nd 12:00am

Brentford head to Selhurst Park full of confidence after an upset 2-0 victory over Arsenal.

The Bees now face Patrick Viera’s Crystal Palace squad who come off an opening match day loss against Chelsea. 

Very tough to split these two teams, given the home advantage for Palace and the form of newly promoted Brentford. 

Predicition: Crystal Palace 2 Brentford 2

Suggested Bet: Draw at $3.10

Leeds United vs. Everton

August 22nd 12:00am

Leed United welcomes Everton to Elland Road in a bid to return winning ways.

Marcelo Bisela’s were spanked 5-1 against Manchester United at Old Trafford, while Everton buried Southampton with a 3-1 triumph at Goodison Park. 

Leeds looked horribly vulnerable in defence and it might prove its undoing in this game against an Everton team who look dangerous with Rafael Benitez at the helm. 

Prediction: Leeds 1 Everton 2

Suggested Bet: Everton head to head at $3

Aston Villa vs. Newcastle

August 22nd 12:00am

It’s almost a case of no Jack Grealish no Aston Villa when it deals with life without their former midfielder against Newcastle. 

Villa was left to rue a shocking first half against Watford and cannot afford a poor start. 

The Magpies also had their issues last week after being outdone in a goal-fest against West Ham United. 

Going to side with Villa purely because this at Villa Park. 

Prediction: Aston Villa 2 Newcastle 1

Suggested Bet: Aston Villa head to head at $1.80

Brighton & Hove Albion vs. Watford

August 22nd 2:30am

Brighton & Hove Albion opens its doors to Watford when the pair go head to head at American Express Community Stadium.  

Brighton started its campaign in the best possible style as Neal Maupay led the line in a 2-1 win over Burnley, while Watford justified why it deserves to be in the league with a 3-2 win over Aston Villa. 

The Premier League experience and talent owned by Brighton is what will hold them in good stead for this clash at home. 

Prediction: Brighton & Hove Albion 1 Watford 0

Suggested Bet: Brighton & Hove Albion head to head at $1.72

Southampton vs. Manchester United

August 22nd 11:00pm

Manchester United heads to St Mary’s Stadium to face Southampton after starting the league season with a massve statement.

The Red Devils put five past Leeds United as Bruno Fernandes continued his amazing scoring run. 

Southampton, however, fell well short of Everton to go down 3-1 in what was a disappointing display to start the season. 

Too much talent on the pitch for the Saints to deal with and the signing of Rafael Varane will only make matters more difficult for the home team. 

Prediction: Southampton 1 Manchester United 3

Suggested Bet: 
Manchester United head to head at $1.60

Arsenal vs. Chelsea

August 23rd 1:30am

Romelu Lukaku is almost certain to make his Chelsea debut when the European Champion travels to the Emirates to face under pressure Arsenal.

Chelsea started of its season in the best possible fashion with a 3-0 triumph over Crytal Palace at Stamford Bridge, but all eyes will on Arsenal in this game. 

Mikel Arteta must turn his fortunes around, but is likely to be without forward duo Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang  and Alexandre Lacazette for the second week running.  

Prediction: Arsenal 1 Cheslea 3

Suggested Bet: Chelsea head to head at $1.80

Wolverhampton vs. Tottenham

August 22nd 11:00pm

Tottenham got off to an amazing start under the stewardship of former Wolves coach Nuno Espirito Santo, beating Premier League champions Man City and here Nuno returns to his old club. 

After such an excellent result last weekend, it would be no surprise to see Spurs retain the same team for this game, whilst Harry Kane continues to build up his fitness in the midst of the speculation over his future.

Wolves went down against Leicester last week and this task is no easier, in fact, it is probably harder. 

Prediction: Wolverhampton 0 Tottenham 2

Suggested Bet: Tottenham head to head at $2.35

West Ham vs. Leicester City

August 24th 5:00am

West Ham United are out to fire on from its winning start when it plays at home for the first time this season as it welcomes Leicester City to London Stadium on Tuesday morning. 

Despite going behind twice, West Ham ultimately wound up 2-4 winners away at Newcastle last Sunday with a terrific showing from their extremely strong attack.

Striker Michail Antonio picked up where he left off last season leading the line for the Hammers with a goal and an assist. 

Leicester, meanwhile, had an all too familiar striker on its scoresheet with Jamie Vardy leading the Foxes to a 1-0 win over Wolverhampton. 

Brendan Rodgers men do look the bet in this game given how solid they were defensively last week. 

Prediction:  West Ham 1 Leicester 2

Suggested Bet: Leicester City head to head at $2.65
