Wolves vs Chelsea (Saturday 15:00 BST)

Despite the fact both of these sides will have come into the new season with aspirations of battling in the top-half of the table, the reality has been anything but as successful. Home side Wolves have limped to three draws and a loss this year, culminating in three points and a 17th-placed position at this early stage of the season. Chelsea meanwhile have won just one game, drawing twice and losing once in that hammering at the hands of Manchester United in their opening fixture. The five points they have picked up along with their disappointing goal difference means they sit below the likes of Sheffield United, something that would have been unthinkable at the start of the season. Of course, it should be kept in mind that only a handful of games have come and gone, but neither side has really excelled yet, while it has been Chelsea in particular that have surprised and disappointed, with an awful record seeing them drop points at home against Leicester and Sheffield United, while they were subjected to that 4-0 hammering at Old Trafford on the opening weekend with a sole win over Norwich resulting in more than half of their points so far. Wolves meanwhile have drawn with Leicester, Manchester United and Burnley before losing to Everton in a run of disappointing results. It should be kept in mind that along with all of these Premier League games have come Europa League qualifying, meaning the side's work load has been massively increased in comparison to that of others in the league.

Last season, these two sides were involved in some very entertaining battles, with Wolves once again proving that they are not a side the so-called big boys can just run-over. A 2-1 win for Wolves at Molineux was followed by a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge as Wolves took four points from a possible six against the Blues last term. Impressively, against the top six last season, Wolves managed to take a significant number of points, picking up 16 of the 36 on offer with Liverpool the only top six side managing to beat Wanderers twice on the bounce in the league. With this in mind and despite the awful form of Wolves this year, we think they will get the better of the Blues this weekend. Frank Lampard's men have not looked good enough at the back and have conceded far too often despite being better going forward than many assumed they would be. In order to give this bet a little more value, we are also looking to back the two sides to get on the scoresheet, something that happened in both their encounters last season. We would be very surprised to see this one end goalless or with one of the two not scoring as neither have been great at the back of late, with just a single clean sheet between the pair in the league this season. 

Watford v Arsenal (Sunday 16:30 BST)

Arsenal failed to make a return to winning ways prior to the international break, and there was a mixture of satisfaction and disappointment when the full-time whistle blew in the North London Derby with Tottenham Hotspur. Having fallen to a 3-1 defeat at Liverpool a week earlier, the Gunners showed great resolve to come back from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw against bitter rivals Spurs, but this was a match that supporters clearly felt their team should have won and they were right to feel that way. They gifted the visitors their 2-0 lead and although that dodgy defence threatened to gift the visitors more goals, Arsenal were the better side throughout and should have come away with all of the spoils. This game could prove to be the story of their season – the Gunners should have paid more attention to strengthening their backline in the summer and their failure to do that is likely to result in many dropped points between now and the end of the campaign. But will they drop any when they return from their brief hiatus on Sunday? Next up for Unai Emery’s side is a trip to face a Watford outfit who have made an appalling start to the season and have already made a change of manager. The Hornets did well under Javi Gracia last season, but it proved to be a case of ‘what have you done for me lately’ from the board as they showed a lack of faith in the manager, giving him the boot after the club took just one point from their first four games. Quique Sanchez Flores was quickly brought back to replace him, but can the Spaniard inspire his team to an upset win in the first game of his second reign at Vicarage Road?

Watford have got the better of Arsenal a couple of times in recent years and fans of both clubs will not forget Troy Deeney’s accusation that the Gunners lack ‘cojones’, but when it comes to meetings between the two clubs over the past 20 years it has been Arsenal who have dominated this fixture. The Gunners have won each of the last three encounters in all competitions and they have now been victorious in 11 of the last 14, winning at Vicarage Road on several occasions during this sequence. That dodgy defence continues to look vulnerable though, and although Watford have been woeful in front of goal so far it would be no shock at all to see them get on the scoresheet here. However, while Arsenal are a shambles at the back they certainly boast one of the most dangerous attacking groups in the Premier League. Nicolas Pepe is already looking like an excellent buy and both Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang and Alex Lacazette have made strong starts to the season by combining for five goals through Arsenal’s first four league fixtures. So it goals without saying that they have the firepower that can make up for the weakness at the back more often than not, and that is way I am going to back Arsenal to get the job done here. That is not where my bet ends though – I also fancy Aubameyang to make it at least four goals in five games and I also believe Watford will get on the scoresheet, so I will be combining all three bets using Paddy Power’s Same Game Multi feature.

Aston Villa v West Ham United (Monday 20:00 BST)

Aston Villa have found their return to the top flight tough sledding so far. They surrendered a one-goal lead late on to lose at Tottenham Hotspur on opening weekend, and then fell to a 2-1 defeat when they hosted Bournemouth in the first home game of the campaign. Dean Smith’s new-look side got off the mark a week later as they got the better of Everton at Villa Park, but they failed to gain any momentum going into the international break as a controversial refereeing decision denied them an equalising goal at Crystal Palace. While it is far too early in the season for panic, Villa will be desperate to string together a good run of form over the coming weeks and first up for them is a home match with West Ham United on Monday night.

While Villa limped into the brief break with just three points in the bag, the Hammers went into it in fine style and were probably wishing that international football had stayed away a little longer. They were hammered 5-0 at home by champions Manchester City on opening day, but their response was strong as they earned a 1-1 draw at Brighton a week later before recording back-to-back victories over Watford and Norwich City to climb to seventh in the table. Supporters must be delighted with how the first few weeks have unfolded, but with another 34 games to go there is still plenty of work to do and given their form before the break, West Ham must fancy their chances of leaving with Midlands with something to show for their efforts.

I would not be surprised to see them get something here, but I would also not be surprised to see Villa come out on top. West Ham, after all, have been a frustrating team to predict in recent years and the home side have already beaten Everton at home this season. Therefore I suggest avoiding betting on the outcome here, but that does not mean there is a shortage of options for Bet of the Day. The one that stands out most centres around a star striker.

Sebastian Haller could turn out to be one of the buys of the season if he continues in his rich vein of form. The 25-year-old striker averaged a goal every other game for Eintracht Frankfurt last season, earning him the attention of West Ham, and he has already begun to repay his fee by lighting up the Premier League and earning rave reviews. Haller played a key role in the fine 3-1 win at Watford, netting twice, and he then made it three goals in four top flight appearances by netting in the home win over Norwich City. He will cause all sorts of issues for a Villa defence that has already conceded six times in the league this season, so it would be no shock to see him continue his purple patch here.

Premier League Betting Tips: How To Bet On Outright Markets

Outright betting on the Premier League remains a great way to make a profit while betting on the top flight of English football, but of course you have to have some patience because these types of bets are not ones that pay out quickly, unless you have placed them during the final days of the season.

Premier League outright markets are straightforward - you are betting on subjects such as league winners, relegation, top-four finishes etc, and these Premier League prediction markets are available all season long so you can wait to see how a team performs before backing them in one of these markets. So what markets are available? Read on...

Premier League Winner

The Premier League Winner market is exactly what the title says – you are betting on who will win the top-flight of English football. This market goes live very early on – you could bet on the 2018/19 Premier League Winner market before the conclusion of the 2017/18 campaign – and the earlier you bet on it, the bigger the price you will get in most instances. Look at Leicester City who were 5000/1 to win the Premier League heading into the 2015/16 season and left the bookies facing some massive pay-outs when they went all the way. You will not see prices that big anymore – the bookies have learned their lesson – but if you are a patient punter this could be the market for you.

Top 4 Finish

The Top 4 Finish market gives you the opportunity to bet on a team finishing in – you guessed it – the top four places in the Premier League. It does not matter if the team you back finishes first, second third or fourth, as long as they are in the top four at the end of the campaign your bet will be a winner. Now, you are not going to make much in the way of a profit by backing a team like Manchester City in this market, but the race for Champions League football is a hot one with several teams looking to fill the four places and that means even some of the big clubs are available at backable prices before and during the season. But of course, as the league season pans out these odds are likely to fluctuate and in many cases get shorter, so you really have to get your timing right to get the best possible odds.

Top 6 Finish

This market is just like the Top 4 one, but in this instance you are betting on a team finishing in the top six. The big guns will always be short odds in this market, but if you feel there is a sleeper team in the Premier League that could upset the established order a little bit – Burnley threatened to do it in 2017/18 – you could make a healthy profit while betting on this market. But just like the Top 4 Finish market, the odds will change throughout the season so timing is everything.

Top 10 Finish

While the Top 4 Finish and Top 6 Finish markets are dominated by the usual suspects, the Top 10 Finish market is one that can produce some very healthy returns because there is almost always one team that springs something of a surprise by finishing in the top half of the table. In recent years the likes of Bournemouth and Burnley have gone from relegation candidates to top-half finishers in the space of 12 months, and if you successfully back a team to follow in their footsteps you could enjoy a tidy profit at the end of the campaign. But just like the previous Top (position) markets, the odds will change throughout the season so timing is everything.


Those first few markets were looking at the top end of the table, but betting on the other end of the Premier League standings is also a popular form of outright betting. The relegation market is simple – you are betting on a team to go down to the Championship at the end of the season. It does not matter if that team finishes 18th, 19th or 20th – as long as they head down to the second tier at the end of the campaign your bet will be a winner. Newly-promoted teams tend to be short odds in this market, but in recent years we have seen quite a few surprise relegations and because this is a market that is available all season long, it really does offer the chance to make a tidy profit when betting on the Premier League. And what you really want here is a congested bottom half because that will result in several teams being available at backable odds even at a late stage in the season.

Relegation Treble

This is very much like the previous market in which you are backing teams to go down, but unlike the Relegation market where you pick just one side, the Relegation Treble market requires you to pick all three teams that will be relegated at the end of the campaign. Due to the risk involved – you need three teams to deliver – this is a market that can lead to a big return.

To Finish Bottom

While the Relegation market asks you to pick a team that will go down, the To Finish Bottom market requires you to select a side that will be propping up the rest of the Premier League table at the end of the season. You will see bigger odds in this market than you will in the Relegation one because you do not have three league positions that will hand you a winning bet, but if you are betting on this market you need to do it before a team gets cut adrift at the bottom, otherwise their odds will shorten quickly and dramatically.

To Stay Up

Staying at the bottom end of the table, we are switching things up with the To Stay Up market. No longer are you backing a team or teams to be relegated, you are backing them to secure Premier League survival. Of course, teams that have featured in the top flight for several seasons are going to be at short or unbackable odds in this market, but if you like the chances of a newly-promoted team lasting more than one season in the Premier League or fancy a team that narrowly avoided the drop the season before to stay up once again, this is the market for you. But just like the other outright markets available for the Premier League, timing is everything here as you look to make a profit because the odds available can – and will – fluctuate.

Top Goalscorer

With a wealth of attacking talent plying its trade in the Premier League nowadays, the race to be the English top-flight’s Top Goalscorer is always an interesting one and it remains a popular outright market for punters to bet on. With so many options available, it is a market that offers an opportunity to make a nice profit because even the most lethal strikers are available at backable odds during the early stages of the season. But of course, as the goals flow the prices shorten and that means this is a market you really need to consider jumping on early to get the best possible price. 

Winner/Top Goalscorer

This market combines the Premier League Winner and Top Goalscorer markets – but you do not necessarily have to back a striker that plys his trade for the team that wins the league. After all, in recent seasons the Premier League champions have not boasted the services of the league’s top goalscorer. The fact you are combining two different markets means there is more risk involved, but if you can successfully select the Premier League Winner and the Golden Boot winner then a healthy profit could be making its way into your account at the end of the campaign.

Premier League Betting Tips: How To Bet On Premier League Matches

Betting on Premier League matches has never been easier and there has never been so many markets to choose from for every single game – but which Premier League prediction markets should you be using in an attempt to make a profit? offers Premier League betting tips for every match in English football’s top tier and the following markets feature regularly in our previews…


Football betting markets do not come much more simpler than this one – you are simply backing a team to win the game or for the match to end in a draw. This market is available for every football match you can possibly bet on, but it goes without saying that sometimes it will not offer the most appealing odds. The best chance of making a decent profit in this market comes from what the bookmakers perceive to be a very competitive match – for example, Watford v Burnley or Manchester United v Liverpool. If a match looks to be one sided then there will be one clear favourite and that team’s odds will not be appealing.


The handicap market is very similar to the ‘Winner’ market, but in this instance you are backing a team to overcome a fictional handicap. For example, Chelsea are 3/10 to beat West Ham United, but that price offers very little in the way of appeal. However, you can still back the Blues to win the match, at a better price, thanks to the handicap market. In this instance, Chelsea -2 to win the match is available at 21/10. So what does the -2 mean? It means West Ham will start the game with a fictional 2-0 lead and Chelsea must win by three goals in order to erase the deficit and win the match, landing you a winning bet. On the opposite side, you may believe Chelsea will win by a single goal so you could go West Ham +2, which is available at Even money. That means if Chelsea win the match 1-0 on the field, West Ham will actually be 2-1 winners in terms of your bet once the two-goal handicap is applied.


Another way to back a team to win at a better price than the one available in the ‘Winner’ market is to dive into the Half-time/Full-time market. This market requires you to bet on who you think will be winning at half-time and full-time in the match. So for example, you may believe Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur will be drawing at half-time but fancy Tottenham Hotspur to be in front at full-time. Therefore the selection you would make would be Draw/Tottenham, which is currently available at 7/1. This market can offer a great way to make a healthy profit because you need two things to happen for it to be a winner.

Winning Margin

Winning margin is another way to back a team at a better price than the one available in the ‘Winner’ betting market – and just like the previous markets I have mentioned this is straightforward. You are merely betting on how many goals a team will win by – Manchester City to win by 1 goal, Manchester City to win by 2 goals, Manchester City to win by 3 goals more etc. So instead of backing Man City to beat Everton at 1/3, which is hardly tempting, you may fancy them to run out comfortable winners by two goals. Backing Manchester City to win by 2 goals in this instance would offer a higher, and more appealing, price of 3/1.

Total Goals

The outcome of the match does not matter as far as this betting market is confirmed – you are merely betting on how many goals will be scored in total. So for example, if you are expecting to see at least two goals you could back Over 1.5 Total Goals, or you may expect to see three or less so you would select Under 3.5 Total Goals. The prices in this market will obviously vary from match to match, so while it may offer a tempting price in one game it may not be particularly appealing in another.

Both Teams To Score

Just like ‘Total Goals’, this football betting market is not affected by the outcome of a match. When betting on this market you simply need both teams involved in the game to find the back of the net – it does not matter how many times they both score, each team just needs to score at least once. Of course, just like ‘Total Goals’ the appeal of this market will vary from match to match. For example, the odds on both teams scoring will be bigger if one team has a rock-solid defence that rarely concedes, while the price will be short if the match is features to two teams with leaky rearguards.

Match Result & Both Teams To Score

This market combines two of the previous markets I have mentioned – Winner and Both Teams To Score. It is straightforward though and it does offer another opportunity to back a match outcome at a bigger price than the one available in the ‘Winner’ market. In this instance, all you are doing is betting on the outcome of the match and whether or not both teams will score. So for example, you may expect odds-on favourites Liverpool to beat Crystal Palace but want a bigger price than 6/13. By going into this market you can get a price as big as 2/1 on Liverpool to win & both teams to score. For this bet to win you just need Palace to score in a losing effort. Of course, the odds are affected by the likelihood of both teams scoring.

Match Result & Over/Under Total Goals

This is very similar to the last market I wrote about, but instead of backing both teams to score you are simply betting on who will win and how many goals will be scored in the match. For example, when Liverpool visit Crystal Palace you may be expecting the Reds to win a match that sees at least three goals. Therefore you would back Liverpool/Over 2.5 in this market at odds of 21/20. It does not matter if Liverpool win 3-0, 2-1 of 10-0 – as long as they are victorious and three total goals are scored then your bet would be a winner. Of course, the odds are affected by the likelihood of goals being scored in the match. 

First Goalscorer

First Goalscorer betting remains one of the most popular forms of betting when it comes to football matches. This market is available for every match in top club and international competitions, and it offers a great opportunity to make a healthy profit because you are simple betting on who will break the deadlock with the game’s first goal. With 20 outfield players on the pitch when the match gets underway, there are plenty of players to choose from and that means even the likes of Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane will be available at backable prices. But perhaps you like the look of a goal-scoring midfielder – his odds could be rather sizeable and if he does break the deadlock you will enjoy a very tidy return.

Anytime Goalscorer

Odds in this market are shorter than the First Goalscorer market because you are merely betting on a player to score in the match. It does not matter if he nets first, second, third or last – as long as he finds the back of the net your bet will be a winner. Big name players are usually at short odds in this market, so you often have to be a little creative when picking out a goalscorer. Perhaps one team is excellent at set-pieces, bringing a defender into play in this market at a big price? Or perhaps a side has a midfielder with a knack for ghosting into the box and grabbing a goal here and there? This market can offer good rewards when you successfully back a player that is not exactly prolific in front of goal.

Premier League History

History was made back in 1992 when it was announced that the top clubs in English football would break away from the Football League to form the Premiership. In reality not much changed though, with clubs still being promoted to and being relegated from the replacement for the old First Division.

Manchester United were crowned the first Premier League champions in 1992/93 and it would prove to be the start of a Golden Era for the Old Trafford giants, who have been by far the most successful team since the break-away, winning the English title on 13 occasions.

Only five other clubs have won the Premier League title, with Chelsea the second most successful club with five trophies, and that shows just how successful the Red Devils were during Sir Alex Ferguson's lengthy reign at the Theatre Of Dreams.

While there is no shock to see Arsenal and Manchester City among the other clubs that have won the title, there are a couple of surprise names on the lineage thanks to Blackburn Rovers' success - funded by Jack Walker - in 1994/95 and Leicester City's incredible 2015/16 success that saw them go from 5000/1 pre-season outsiders to kings of English football.
