Premier League – Week 1 – Odds and Predictions 14.08.2016 and 15.08.2016
Most of the matches part of the week 1 of the Premier League will take place on Saturday. However, there are two more attractive matches on Sunday and one on Monday. We couldn’t leave these out as 3 of the biggest clubs in the Premier League are included like Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea. Right off the bat, there’s going to be a derby match that can be the decisive moment for the entire season. Without further a due, let’s take a look at all 3 matches individually and see if there are any earning prospects.
Bournemouth vs. Manchester United
The last season was a rather unlucky one for Manchester United. They ended their journey ranked as the 5th on the leaderboard, right behind their rivals Manchester City. Bournemouth had their inaugural season in the Premier League, after they came from the Championship Division. The previous one was a rough season for Manchester United. It was a real roller coaster that was on the low end for most of the season. Regardless, this is a new season, a new beginning. Manchester United brought Zlatan Ibrahimovic on the island as one of their key reinforcement. The experienced soon to retire Swedish player with Bosnian ancestry is a great addition to the ranks of Manchester Utd. In addition to Zlatan, Eric Bailly and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have also joined the Devils.
Head to Head Performance
Bournemouth and Manchester United have met two times so far in the Premier League. On one occasion Bournemouth was more successful one with a score of 2:1, whereas the Devils managed to get their revenge with a score of 3:1 at Old Trafford. Could this be a repetition of the previous season’s match? Can Bournemouth defeat Manchester Utd on domestic turf?
We tend to disagree. Manchester United should be victorious, especially if we consider the fact that the ingenious Zlatan Ibrahimovic has joined their ranks. However, we also expect that Bournemouth will try to bite more than they can chew, opening their defensive lines to a rain of goals. Jose Mourinho is a fierce strategist. He knows how to deal with mediocre teams.
Bournemouth vs. Manchester United 08.14.2016 – Odds and Predictions
Despite the home stadium advantage the odds for Machnester United to beat Bournemouth are rather low, and they’re going lower, currently sitting at 1.73 or 73/100.Whenever a new manager joins a particular team, that squad will play much better than their average performance. Why? To prove their worth in an official game and to save their spot in the starting line-up. It’s what’s going on with Manchester United at this very moment. So bet on Manchester United to win against Bournemouth at odds of 1.73 at Bet365.
Arsenal vs. Liverpool
Once the schedule for the upcoming season was out, the community was mind-boggled by the fact that Arsenal is meeting Liverpool at the very start. Arsenal’s changed, that’s for sure. Mikel Arteta and Tomas Rosicky will be missed. On the other hand, Granit Xhaka from Monchengladbach has joined the Gunners. Hopefully, he’s the missing chain that was needed for Arsenal to finally win the Premier League. Liverpool, one of the teams with the richest history and tradition. They bought Sadio Mane from Southampton for staggering £34.0m. Can he be a worthy asset?
Arsenal finished the previous season ranked as 2nd, right behind Leicester City, whereas Liverpool finished the season on the 8th spot.
Head to Head Performance
In their 5 past games Arsenal proved to be better than Liverpool on 2 occasions. Only one game ended in a 0-0 tie. Liverpool were not able to overcome the challenge called Arsenal. Arsenal is stronger than ever. Arsene Wenger is finally getting a grip on his players and dealing with the competition.
Arsenal has the upper hand as the host of this match. It does have one of the most passionate crowd, loyal fan base. They can make any guest team feel like they’re in a nightmare.
Arsenal vs. Liverpool 08.14.2016 – Odds and Predictions
Despite the advantage Arsenal has as the home team, bookmakers tend to value Liverpool’s performance quite a lot. That said,the odds for Arsenal to win against Liverpool are 2.15 or 23/20. However, a draw seems more likely to be the outcome of this rather close match. A draw bet promises you a prize equal to 3.30 times the bet amount.
In order to maximize your chances of winning we recommend you to place a bet both team to score and that there will be 2.5+ scored goals.
Chelsea vs. West Ham
You might’ve assumed that Chelsea has been consistent in their encounters with West Ham, but the statistic says otherwise. That said, Chelsea had been the victor only 2 times out of their 5 last matches with West Ham. The Hammers have always been a problem for Chelsea, this game shouldn’t be any different than the previous ones. Mitchy Batshuayi joined Chelsea from Marseille for a fee of £33.m and N’Golo Kate came from Leicester. Chelsea’s manager, Antonio Conte managed to defeat AC Milan in the International Champions Cup, but this is the Premier League. If the Hammers crush Chelsea at the very start of the season, it will be a demotivating factor for the whole team.
Head to Head Performance
Chelsea were the host in the last match they played against West Ham. It ended with a score of 2-2, whereas West Ham defeated Chelsea with a score of 2-1. One thing’s for sure, Chelsea will score in the upcoming game, be that as a mistake in West Ham’s end or simply because Chelsea’s boys play outstandingly. An interesting fact that will keep you thinking is that West Ham finished the last season ranked as 7th, whereas Chelsea had to settle with the 10th spot. West Ham are among the top scoring teams for Premier League season 2015/2016.
Chelsea vs. West Ham 08.14.2016 – Odds and Predictions
All hands on both teams to score bet at odds of 1.95 or 19/20. The odds are beyond than just generous for a match of this kind. Considering the capabilities of West Ham and the will of Chelsea to end up as the victor, there will be a lot of mistakes on the pitch, at both ends. Whenever mistakes occur, goals are scored.
