EPL Matchday 8 Betting Tips

Southampton vs Newcastle United

St. Mary’s Stadium, Saturday 7am AEDT

Southampton continued their fantastic run in the Premier League with a dominant win over Aston Villa last weekend. The score line certainly doesn’t represent how dominant the Saints were, but a win’s a win and they’re now into 5th spot on the table.

Newcastle United were in need of three points last weekend to stay in touch with the top half of the table and they certainly didn’t disappoint. The Magpies were fantastic at home against a decent Toffee outfit, with new signing Callum Wilson scoring a brace.

Both clubs come into this off great wins last weekend, but we see Southampton as the more likely to go on with it. Then Saints are the form team of the league at the moment with 13/15 points accrued from their last five matches and we expect their great run to continue.

West Bromwich Albion vs Tottenham Hotspur

The Hawthorns, Sunday 11pm AEDT

West Bromwich Albion come into this weekend still searching for the first win of their campaign. Last weekend they had their best chance against a fellow newly-promoted team in Fulham, but they were held goalless in a 0-2 defeat on the road.

Tottenham have started the season in fine form with just the one defeat to their name after seven fixtures. They got the job done narrowly against Brighton in their last EPL match (2-1) and followed it up with a 3-1 win in the Europa League midweek.

The Baggies enter this clash having conceded a whopping 16 goals and will find it very tough to stop a potent Spurs outfit that includes Gareth Bale coming off his first goal back at the club. We’re expecting the Spurs to come out on top pretty comfortably here, but like the value for both teams to score as well.

Manchester City vs Liverpool

Etihad Stadium, Monday 3:30am AEDT

We have to wait until Monday morning to watch the highly anticipated match of the round between Manchester City and Liverpool. The Citizens enter this clash off a win against Sheffield last weekend (1-0), which was a little close for comfort. It hasn’t been an ideal start to the season for the title-fancies who come into this weekend in 10th spot on the table.

Liverpool were slow(ish) beginners to their title defence but have quickly hit their straps on the back of some impressive wins. They’ve now won three on the trot in major competitions, all of which they held their opponent scoreless. The Reds are top of the table, clear of Leicester by a single point.

We’re a little surprised to see Manchester City as the firm favourites in this clash considering the form of the two sides. City obviously have the ability to win this on their home deck, but the odds available for the defending champs to get the job done are simply too good to turn down.
