The meetings come fast and strong this weekend as the Premier League continues.
We’ve got betting tips for you from two top-flight matches, starting with Old Trafford where Manchester United host Arsenal.
Man Utd vs Arsenal, dimanche 16h30 (Sky Sports Main Event)
15th vs 11th at Old Trafford – how times change, eh?
This Premier League-era heavyweight game has lost its luster in recent years, although the Gunners have only won one of their last seventeen visits to Old Trafford.
Mikel Arteta’s side were beaten by Leicester last time around and lacked a certain sharpness, perhaps feeling the pinch of Europa League action on the previous Thursday.
Either way, these are the rigors of modern play and the Gunners can’t afford to fall into a third straight league loss here.
Meanwhile, Man Utd continues to go from delusional highs one week to vicious lows the following week.
After beating PSG in their own backyard less than a fortnight ago, the merchants of doom were back in full force as they squeezed a void with Chelsea last weekend.
So much so that #OleOut was all the rage across the UK.
And after smashing Leipzig five times midweek, will this be another case of returning to Earth?
It’s the start of the new season, but it feels like the Norwegian needs a first home win in the Premier League to calm the natives.
Do we think they will get it? Well, we’re not going to put our hard earned money into it, that’s for sure.
Rely on the objective market for the money and let these two extremely inconsistent teams roll for the result.
Both teams scored in the last SEPT face to face at Old Trafford, while United’s four of five Premier League games this season have scored three or more goals.
The combination of over 2.5 goals and BTTS is even tempting money and our big fancy for the weekend.
United have a negative goal difference after that beating they received against Spurs and have shown themselves to start slowly this season.
This was evident when Spurs scored twice in seven minutes, and at Newcastle when Toon was leading after 120 seconds.
As such, Arsenal return to start quickly at the Theater of Dreams with the Gunners a formidable 13/10 at net in the first half. Huge.
Willian is set to return Thursday against Dundalk and at the start of the season he looked like a real live feed.
The Brazilian is a huge 4/1 at net anytime on Sunday – that’s a big deal and we would recommend a little play on that one with him probably on the set piece.
SunSport’s best bets
- Over 2.5 goals and both teams score: evens (BET HERE)
- Arsenal will score in the first half: 13/10 (BET HERE)
- Willian will score at any time: 4/1 (BET HERE)
Leeds vs Leicester, lundi 20h (Sky Sports Main Event)
The promotion rebound continues to come for Leeds and Marcelo Bielsa.
It was another superb night for the Premier League newboys as they demolished the previously undefeated Aston Villa 3-0 on the road, securing a place in the top six.
While they’re unlikely to reach those dizzying heights all season long, their incredible work ethic and tireless running has been a breath of fresh air this season.
Statistics have shown that as a combined team, Leeds have raced over NEW miles further than their Villa counterparts that night. Hard work pays off.
Leicester, meanwhile, are back in the groove after an excellent 1-0 win over Arsenal in the Emirates.
It ended a long fruitless spell for the Foxes in north London and this behind-closed-door start to the season appears to have reduced the impact of the home advantage.
Jamie Vardy has returned from injury to mark the winner off the bench and he’ll love trying to get behind that Leeds backline.
The Whites are a lot of fun to watch and regardless of the opposition Bielsa is aiming for three points.
Promoted teams usually get a wake-up call after a solid start and we think the Foxes will be confident to get something under the lights at Elland Road.
They won their three away games to start the new campaign, with a goal difference of 7+.
You can get 4/9 on Leicester Double Chance and that’s a blast price to top up your weekend stacks.
For those of you looking for something more substantial, the Foxes win but both teams score in a much more appealing 17/5.
We believe Leeds have found the net, although they did go blank the last time they were here against Wolves.
Patrick Bamford is their man of the moment and the much-ridiculed striker thrives after being supported to the hilt by his boss.
He sits above Mo Salah and Harry Kane in the Premier League’s Golden Boot race and in his current form he should be close to scoring chances at all times.
Instead, Leeds’ No9 is priced 7/4 to score anytime and that’s a low.
SunSport’s best bets
- Leicester double chance (draw or win): 4/9 (BET HERE)
- The Foxes will win with both teams scoring: 17/5 (BET HERE)
- Patrick Bamford clear again: 7/4 (BET HERE)
