Opening Day Premier League Acca – 14th & 15th August

Welcome back to our season-long series of tips for the Premier League! It’s been a relatively decent summer in terms of football with the European Championships and whatnot to keep us busy but there’s nothing to replace the kick off of a brand new Premier League season.

Last season, I didn’t hit as many winning weeks as I would have liked. Now I know anybody who bets against the bookies will likely say that, but I am used to landing a few accas each season, so I want to get back to that this year.

As always, I’ll be here throughout the season with tips on the Premier League, Champions League, Europa League, International Games and the FA Cup, so do tune in over the course of the week for the latest round of tips. They get posted up on the day of the game in plenty of time for you to get your bet on if you like the look of my tip for that day.

So let’s get cracking with this weekend’s first set of games in the Premier League on Matchday 1 and we have a couple of cracking games to kick things off, starting Friday night with the Brentford v Arsenal clash and then we have. the remaining nine matches taking place across Saturday and Sunday.

Man Utd v Leeds looks the top pick from Saturday’s games, while Sunday’s clash between Tottenham and Manchester City looks like being the game of the weekend.

Here are my four selections for this weeks EPL accumulator.

Bet Analysis: Saturday 14th August

Burnley v Brighton – Home Win

Both these sides are generally among those fighting relegation each season and I think that is likely to be the case this time around, but I do feel that Burnley are probably just the stronger of the two teams. With Brighton losing Ben White to Arsenal, and Yves Bissouma’s future not sorted as yet, that has left them with question marks in two key positions. Graham Potter is a good manager but a lack of investment in his squad over the end of season period could come back to haunt the Seagulls and that may begin here. Burnley are tough to beat at home and I think they’ll get their season off to a winning start with a narrow victory here.

Leicester City v Wolves – Home Win

In their last two competitive games, Leicester have won the FA Cup and Community Shield. Brendan Rodgers has strengthened his squad with a couple of quality signings over the summer, while managing to hang on to the likes of Maddison, Barnes and Tielemans. That puts Leicester in a very strong position heading into the season here and I think they start this game as the big favourites. Wolves in contrast have had a quiet pre-season but the loss of manager Nuno Santo to Tottenham is going to be a big blow for the team and as such, I think they are going to take a while to get to grips with what new manager Pablo Lago is going to want. Recent games between these two have not produced many goals (just one goal in the last four games), but I think Leicester will get at least one on Saturday to claim the win.

Watford v Aston Villa – Away Win

Aston Villa may be heading to this game without Jack Grealish, but they have invested the £100m they received from Manchester City for the England man very wisely. Bringing in a proven goalscorer like Danny Ings to play alongside Ollie Watkins was a shrewd move while the likes of Emi Buendia and Liam Bailey will help provide some of the creativity lost by Grealish’s sale.  Watford’s first game back in the EPL will be an interesting one for manager Xisco Torres, but I think the Hornets are going to be in for a bit of a tough time of if this year and I am backing Villa to land the win here.

Bet Analysis: Sunday 15th August

Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester City – Away Win

Without doubt the biggest game of the first weekend of the season. After losing the Champions League Final and Community Shield, Manchester City come into this game probably needing a win. Spurs welcome a new boss in Nuno Santo and of course, the whole Harry Kane saga seems no closer to being resolved, despite Manchester City’s overt pursuit of the England striker. It remains to be seen whether Kane plays in this game but even if he does, mentally this will be a tough game for him to get motivated for. That said, I do feel City are lightweight in attack and while I am backing them to win, I think it will be a close run thing with just a goal between the two teams.
