Marquee Match of the Week
The marquee match is going to be the inaugural match of the season: Arsenal vs Leicester City.
FT 1X2 (1.51, 4.40, 6.20)
There are rumours that Alexis Sanchez wants to leave Arsenal. He is anyway unavailable for the first two matches of the season. Similarly Mezut Ozil too is a doubtful starter. Arsene Wenger will offer premier league debut to the newly arrived striker Alexandre Lacazette. Arsenal fans will hope for a spectacular start for the lanky French striker. Arsenal have never had any problem with attackers. But it is their defence and defensive midfield that usually let them down – especially against top-class attacks.
The Arsenal defence will be tested against Leicester. Jamie Vardy, Islam Slimani and Ahmed Musa possess enough goal-scoring prowesses to rattle the Arsenal defence. The odds are in favour of Arsenal. But our prediction is for an upset win for Leicester.
Other Interesting Fixtures
There are other upsets likely on the cards. Liverpool are visiting Watford. Liverpool have had an excellent pre-season. But they have this tendency to play well below their best against lower-ranked teams. Watford is a well-drilled team, capable of miracles on their home turf. Prediction for online betting: a 1-1 draw.
The other top teams, like Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester United, Manchester City, have relatively easy fixtures. If you are looking for value for odds, check out the odds of West Brom vs Bournemouth. All the results have excellent odds for online betting. The teams are an unknown quantity as of now. But West Brom, playing at home, have an obvious advantage.
