English Premier League Preview

English Premier League Preview

UK Football Predictions

By Paul Seaton

With all twenty teams in action, we start with the champions and end with a classic fixture. 

Saturday August 13th

Hull City (+270) vs. Leicester City (+110)

Champions Leicester take on the favorites for relegation, Hull City. While The Foxes have lost the central midfield lynchpin of N'Golo Kante, that is unlikely to derail them against a desperate Hull side, who've lost Steve Bruce and signed virtually no-one during the off season.

Hull are clearly doomed and we can't see why Leicester are +110. Vardy and Mahrez demonstrated against Manchester United in the Community Shield that they are still in fine form:

While Leicester will struggle to repeat last season's heroics in winning the Premier League title, new £16.6m signing Ahmed Musa expected to make his Premier League debut and Leicester should win. If you thought Jamie Vardy was fast...wait until you see Musa!

Our tip: Leicester to win (+110) 

Everton (+195) vs. Tottenham Hotspur (+145) 10am ET

Everton have long been one of Spurs' bogey sides in the Premier League era, and while we see the Londoners edging Everton over the course of the season, Ronald Koeman may just be more desperate to open the season with a home win.

Our tip: Everton to win (+195)

Southampton (-125) vs. Watford (+350) 10am ET

Every year, Southampton seem to prove the doubters wrong. For years they kept improving despite losing high profile players such as Gareth Bale, Adam Lallana and Morgan Schneiderlin. Losing Ronald Koeman, however, is going to cost them... but not today. Watford will be outclassed, mainly by new Southampton signing Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (below). 

Our tip: Southampton 2-1 Watford (+750)

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg

Crystal Palace (Evens) vs. West Bromwich Albion (+310) 10am ET

West Brom, boosted by new ownership and Tony Pulis, frightened by new ownership, will pull off a shock triumph over The Eagles. 

Our tip: The Baggies to win at +310. 

Burnley (+160) vs. Swansea (+185) 

Two bald men fight over a comb as relegation fearfuls clash at Turf Moor. Expect this to be last on the highlight shows.

Our tip: Take the tie at +210. 

Middlesborough (+115) vs. Stoke City (+255) 10am ET 

Stoke started poorly last year, and with Mark Hughes under pressure to avoid a repeat, we can see a Bojan-inspired away win. 

Our tip: Stoke to win (+255). 

Manchester City (-475) vs. Sunderland (+1200) 12.30pm ET

If David Moyes' Sunderland take much back to the Stadium of Light except a vague feeling of having spent too long on a fairground carousel, we'll be shocked. Pep Guardiola should mastermind three points for his title favorites. That said, City's defense looked poor in their defeat to Arsenal last weekend:

Our tip: City to win & Both teams score (+180) 

Sunday August 14th 

Bournemouth (+395) vs. Manchester United (-135) 8.30am ET

United lost at Bournemouth last season. Jose Mourinho's Chelsea lost at Bournemouth last season. Yet The Cherries are a huge price to win. What's changed? Most importantly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic (below).

Zlatan united

Our tip: Back the Swede to score at any time (-110) 

Arsenal (+130) vs. Liverpool (+215) 11am ET 

Liverpool look great in pre-season and have the pace to hurt Arsenal's flimsy back-line. The Gunners will probably score, but we rate Klopp's troops as vastly over-priced. 

Our tip: Liverpool win (+215) 

Monday August 15th 

Chelsea (-160) vs. West Ham United (+450) 3pm ET

Chelsea should have far too much for West Ham. Conte 1-0 Bilic in the battle of two fantastic European managers. Check out Chelsea's recent win against Werder Bremen! 

Our tip: Chelsea to be winning at Half-time & Full-time (+120)
