The Premier League is back this weekend and our friends at thatsagoal.com have picked out three best betting tips for the season openers.
The start of the season is always a tough betting prospect but the bookies are sometimes as wrong as the punters and there is certainly money to be made if you can find the best odds for certain bets.
The weekend starts with Liverpool v Stoke on Saturday lunchtime but with the Reds strong favourites to win, we will be swerving that match and waiting until the 3pm kick-offs for our first bet.
Best Three Bets for Saturday.
Bet 1: West Ham to beat Cardiff City: Evens with Paddy Power.
The first bet we have this weekend if West Ham to beat Cardiff (Evens). The Premier League new boys have a tough start against the Hammers and Sam Allardyce will ensure his side aren’t the butt of an opening day upset. If this match was later in the season West Ham would be a lot shorter in the betting. They finished their pre-season strongly and can hit the ground running with three points here.
Bet 2: Wilfried Bony to score anytime vs Man Utd: 13/5 with Paddy Power.
The second bet comes from the evening kick-off on Saturday where Swansea host Manchester United. Both sides have already been in competitive action this season, Swansea beat Malmo in the Europa League and Manchester United won the Community Shield on Sunday. This match is normally close and in the two fixtures last season Swansea scored in both, drawing at home and losing 2-1 away. The Swans can at least score again here and new signing Wilfried Bony could be the man. Back him to add to his tally after his double against Malmo and score anytime at 13/5.
Bet 3: Chelsea to beat Hull City (-2 Handicap): 7/5 with Paddy Power.
Finally we wait until Sunday’s 4pm kick-off for our last bet where Chelsea host new boys Hull City. Jose Mourinho is back and he will ensure his side shows no mercy against Hull. In his first tenure in charge Chelsea had a habit of battering the lesser sides and they can give Hull a real baptism of fire here. Expect Chelsea to win by three goals or more on Sunday and you can bet on that at odds of 7/5 with Paddy Power.
If you fancy the treble this weekend it pays 16/1.
