The 2023-24 Premier League season returns to action after last weekend’s opening round of fixtures, and here at Premier Bet we are on hand with our weekly preview! ⚽
Not only will our team news, tactical analysis and tips make you the most knowledgeable person in the group chat, they will also give you plenty of food for thought when it comes to making your betting selections. 💰
Last time out we landed two odds-against winners, with an unexpected flurry of goals between Newcastle and Aston Villa letting us down on completing the full sweep. There are a range of fascinating fixtures coming up, including a couple of London derbies, but we’re focusing on Saturday night’s double header.
Tottenham vs Man United (Saturday 17:30 GMT)
Tottenham began their new era under former Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou with a 2-2 draw away to Brentford, with the most eye-catching feature of that match being their 70% domination of possession despite playing away from home. This was hugely helped by Emerson Royal – who scored his side’s crucial equaliser – unexpectedly playing in an inverted full-back role.
Man Utd, meanwhile, got up and running with an expected 1-0 win against Wolves, but Erik ten Hag’s side were far from convincing and rode their luck on a number of occasions. The Dutchman may look to shore things up in midfield, as Casemiro was frequently left with too much space to cover behind new signing Mason Mount and club captain Bruno Fernandes.
With both sides looking vulnerable defensively and plenty of attacking firepower set to take to the field, Both Teams To Score is a solid bet at 1.53, but let’s use the Bet Builder to increase those odds. We can add over 7.5 corners, each team over 9.5 booking points & over 29.5 total booking points to receive total odds of 2.05. You can find detailed explanations for these markets on site.
Man City vs Newcastle (Saturday 20:00 GMT)
It took less than four minutes for Erling Haaland to open his account for the season away to Burnley in last Friday’s Premier League curtain-raiser, before the Norway doubled his tally later in the first half on the way to a comfortable 3-0 win against Vincent Kompany’s side.
Newcastle top the table after thrashing Aston Villa 5-1 with the stand-out performance of the opening weekend. Sandro Tonali scored on his debut with a flying volley after six minutes, before Alexander Isak followed in Haaland’s footsteps with a brace, while Callum Wilson and new signing Harvey Barnes displayed the Toon Army’s increasing strength in depth by both coming off the bench to score late on.
As such, they will head to the Etihad Stadium with real confidence of collecting a positive result, especially as the Citizens played 120 minutes against Sevilla on Wednesday evening on their way to eventually lifting the Super Cup on penalties. We smell an upset here, so will keep things simple by backing Newcastle on the Double Chance market at odds of 1.95. For this bet to win, the away side need to win or draw the game.
