Brentford vs Brighton & Hove Albion
I am betting Brentford here today, Brentford have had a good solid start to the season although the fixtures have been in somewhat kind, they face a Brighton side who while i really like but have been a little disappointed to the start to the season. Brighton were beaten 2-0 at home by Everton in their latest game but were in truth well beaten and it could have been a bigger defeat truth be told, Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma who is the player that makes the seagulls tick has yet to hit the heights of previous seasons. I think they are worth taking on today against a solid Bretford side and make the bees a bet with home advantage on the draw no bet line.

Manchester United vs Newcastle United
The big match of the weekend and it will see Ronaldo make his 2nd debut for Man United in front of the adoring Old Trafford supporters but I think Man United look very short in the betting for this match, they are -2 and even though Newcastle are a poor side i do believe there is some value betting the underdog +2 goals here. There are goals in Newcastle, however there is at the other end and if they can have a good day defensively, they should cover this very large handicap as well as that it is fair to say it will probably take United a few weeks to bed Ronaldo fully in to their team.
Newcastle Utd +2 min odds 1.95
Leicester City vs Manchester City
I am betting over 2.75 goals scored here, For me this is a game that both sides are likely to score in, Leicester are still missing Fofana and also Johnny Evans and those 2 being out are a massive blow to the Foxes as well as that it looks very likely that De Bruyne will start which will be a major boost for City. Both these sides averaged over 3 goals last season in their games (3.11 & 3.03) and both are averaging at least 3 goals so far this season too, so i make 2.75 at odds against a value bet and believe it should be a odds on bet.

Chelsea vs Aston Villa
Chelsea -1.5 is my bet here, Villa have been ordinary this season so far, they were well beaten by Watford on the opening day and then easily could have dropped points at home to Newcastle United then drew at home to Brentford, hardly the 3 toughest fixtures especially when 2 of them at home. They take a massive step up in opposition against Chelsea today, Chelsea showed what a good side they are in Anfield in the last match where they took a deserving point despite playing the majority of the game with 10 men. Chelsea are ultra sound defensively and now have Lukaku up front which should increase their goals for and I make them value here -1.5.
