We’re about a quarter of the way through the Premier League season & from now on I’ll be bringing you betting tips every Matchday. I’ll be picking 3 or 4 games to write about & recommend a bet for each one.
I’ll be keeping track of every bet I recommend here & starting off with a $400 pot that I will divide by 40 to give me 40 units. 1 Unit equals $10 & each bet will be either 1, 2 ($20) or 3 ($30) Units depending on how strong I feel about them.
The Premier League has been very unpredictable this season & the only guarantee I give is complete transparency. If you have any questions hit me up on Twitter @RegistaPicks
TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR VS MANCHESTER CITY
The lines for this game is ridiculous with Manchester City odds on favorite at -124. The Citizens have played one game less but it’s still surprising to see them ranked 13th for goals scored with Crystal Palace & Brighton above them. Pep Guardiola’s side are normally setting the pace but have managed just 9 this season & 4 in their last 5 fixtures. Sergio Aguero & Gabriel Jesus have been unavailable through injury but this is still way below what they’re capable of.
The signing of Rúben Dias has improved them defensively & he looks to be forming a solid partnership with Aymeric Laporte. The Portuguese international joined shortly after Leicester mauled them 5-2 & they have only conceded 3 in the Premier League since, putting them joint top for fewest goals conceded.
Tottenham’s 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion is a sign that Mourinho’s working his magic. Jose’s strength has always been that he gets the best out of his players & this could be the season he guides Spurs to the title. They had an excellent transfer window with Pierre-Emile Højbjerg, Sergio Reguilón & Matt Doherty proving to be quality additions. If they can keep Harry Kane & Heung-Min Son fit & get Gareth Bale back to his best they have a real chance.
How Spurs are +310 & the Draw +295 is beyond me. Both of these results are the most likely & I’m backing both.
Prediction: 2 Units – Tottenham or the Draw +102
LIVERPOOL VS LEICESTER CITY
The international break has not been kind to last seasons Premier League winners.
Mo Salah tested positive for COVID-19 after attending his brothers wedding. Andrew Robertson picked up a hamstring injury in Scotland’s penalties win over Serbia. Joe Gomez’s season could be over after injuring his knee during a England training session. And Jordan Henderson is suffering from muscle tightness picked up in their 2-0 loss to Belgium.
They join Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Thiago Alcantara & Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on the injury list to give Jurgen Klopp a selection headache.
Leicester are sitting top of the Premier League & are facing their own injury issues. Wilfred Ndidi, Caglar Soyuncu & Daniel Amartey are definitely out & it’s probably to soon for fullbacks Timothy Castagne & Ricardo Pereira to feature. Kasper Schmeichel returned to training for Denmark after exiting their weekend fixture with a head injury & should be available.
Both sides are facing injury problems but 8 of the 9 players Liverpool have out would make their best 11. Klopp can still but out a decent 11 but he is limited with the options on the bench. Brendan Rogers doesn’t have that issue & I like The Foxes to get something out of this game.
Prediction: 1 Unit – Leicester or the Draw -114
WOLVES VS SOUTHAMPTON
Southampton will be relieved that Danny Ings’s injury isn’t as bad as first feared but they will struggle to replace his goals, creativity & industry in the final third. He has been their most productive player with 5 goals & 2 assists but is unavailable till mid December at the very least.
James Ward-Prowse is back in training after withdrawing from the England squad with a hamstring injury. Stuart Armstrong returned early from Scotland duty after picking up a suspension to get some much needed rest.
Ralph Hasenhüttl turned to Theo Walcott to fill the void against Newcastle & it’s likely he will continue. The former England international combined well with Che Adams against The Magpies but Wolves are a completely different beast (Excuse the Pun) & I think they will struggle.
It was a poor start to the season for Nuno Espírito Santo’s side losing their opening two fixtures but they’re starting to find their rhythm & find themselves just 3 points behind The Saints. Wolves fitness & conditioning team has to be one of the best in the world right now with LB Jonny Otto the only player out injured.
Wolves are unbeaten at Molineux in their last 3 home games & I’m backing them to get all 3 points here.
Prediction: 1 Unit – Wolves Money Line +132
