Premier League Tips Matchweek 26
This column heads into the latest matchweek having already landed 17 accumulators this campaign from 60 bets.
This week I am back with two accumulators, one for the games on Saturday and another for the games on Sunday, both of which are with bet365.
As ever, we’ll keep you updated week-by-week on the running success of this page, proving to you that this is the best place to come for your Premier League tips.
2.35/1 Saturday accumulator with Bet365
- Aston Villa to beat Nottingham Forest
- Manchester United to beat Fulham
- Manchester City to beat Bournemouth
Our first pick for Saturday is Aston Villa to beat Nottingham Forest at Villa Park. Villa are currently fighting for a Champions League place, while Forest remain in danger of being sucked into a relegation scrap.
Villa have lost their last two home outings vs Newcastle and Manchester United. However, they are still stronger at home this term, while Forest are 17th in the away form table, having won just two in 12.
Next up is Manchester United to beat Fulham. The Red Devils have improved somewhat in recent weeks but the main reason for this pick is Fulham’s dismal away record.
Marco Silva’s side are 12th in the Premier League but 19th in the away form table, having one won, drawn four and lost seven this campaign.
Our final pick for Saturday’s treble is Manchester City to beat Bournemouth. After a solid run, Bournemouth are now winless in six PL ties. The Cherries have also never beaten Manchester City in their entire history, with City winning all 14 games played between the duo in the Premier League.
1.42/1 Sunday accumulator with Bet365
- Wolves to beat Sheffield United
- West Ham vs Brentford BTTS
With the League Cup final taking place this weekend there is only one Premier League game on Sunday, so we have added Monday evening’s match to this bet to create a double.
Sunday’s single Premier League tie sees Wolves play host to Sheffield United. And unsurprisingly, we have gone for a Wolves win.
Wolves head into this game on the back of a huge 2-1 win over Tottenham as they continue their fight for a European spot. As for Sheffield United, they remain dead bottom of the division with just one away win in 2023/24 (vs Luton).
Rounding out the double is Monday evening’s game between West Ham and Brentford.
Neither side is in great form ahead of the match, meaning backing a winner is somewhat difficult. However, a BTTS bet does seem fairly safe.
Seven of Brentford’s last eight Premier League matches have ended with both teams scoring. As for West Ham, they have been somewhat goal-shy in their last few matches. But they have recently played Manchester United and Arsenal. They are also stronger at home this term, which should give them a better chance of netting vs a Bees side who have kept just four clean sheets in 25 attempts.

Premier League Outright Tips
A new Premier League season is upon us, and we look set for another blockbuster season from the most watched league in the world! Arsenal picked up the first piece of silverware of the season by claiming the Community Shield, could that be the building block for Mikel Arteta’s men to bring down Manchester City’s castle? In this article I take a look over outright markets which I think might pose a bit of value over the course of the season as single bets.
As to be expected Manchester City dominate a lot of the markets and are short prices in many areas such as ‘To Lift The Trophy’ where they are priced at 5/6 with Bet365 and player markets like the golden boot where Erling Haaland is 4/6 to score the most goals in the league. The golden glove is also laced with City favouritism with Ederson coming in at evens and you will find Kevin De Bruyne leading the market for the top assists at the end of the season at 11/4 with Bet365. These sorts of prices don’t inspire me over the course of a season, I want something a bit juicier…
PFA Player of the Year - Rodri 50/1
I have gone for a bold shout with my PFA Player of the Year so if you are taking a punt with me I definitely recommend small stakes. Rodri was a colossal figure for Manchester City last season and scored the goal that completed their famous treble against Inter Milan in the Champions League final. When I watched City play last season I felt the player most in control of everything was Spain’s holding midfielder and his influence in front of an already strong back-line is going to make City a horrible prospect for every team this season.
With Gundogan having left there is a void left in the middle of the park but I have a feeling we will see Rodri step up and own this Manchester City midfield and turn it into his own beast, allowing the likes of De Bruyne who is coming towards the backend of his career and Bernardo Silva to flourish. Rodri now plays the role of the Busquets ‘Barcelona era and he plays it very effectively and with limited minutes for Kalvin Phillips last season it showed how vital he is to this teams success. With the additions City have made to their defence I expect them to be conceding a lot less goals this season and I think Rodri will marshal the middle of the park and dictate the tempo. Much like Kante at Leicester City in 2016/17 where a holding midfielder picked up the award I am thinking that there will be some sort of appreciation for the role of Rodri.
Manchester City to win Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup 70/1
Last season Manchester City completed a famous treble but could they take it one step further this season? Their new backline looks to be a wall that is going to be very difficult to break down with the addition of Josko Gvardiol and Joao Cancelo coming back into the team offers some more creative options again from the full-back positions. I had my doubts about their midfield having the same levels as last season but City at 70/1 to win all four trophies has certainly caught my eye with Pep looking for legacy at the Etihad Stadium.
Top Assists Trent-Alexander Arnold 8/1 with Betway
The clear market leader is Kevin De Bruyne but I have questions over his fitness and whether Pep will look to rotate KDB more next season. Last year De Bruyne was hampered by injuries and coming into the twilight of his career I think we will see his minutes in the Premier League potentially reduced and used for more important games. For me there looks to be some value in another assist king in Trent Alexander-Arnold at 8/1. We already saw at the backend of last season that TAA could be taking up a new role within the team in the middle of the park and for England we even saw him operating as a number 8. He clearly thrived in the role with his vision, and with Liverpool having sold Milner, Henderson, Keita and Fabinho in the summer transfer window there is now a massive void left in the midfield area.

The downside of an acca is you need every selection to win, but the big positive with an acca is the odds on offer. Usually big, as each selection rolls up onto the next, an acca bet is a great way to get big returns for a small stake when placing your Premier League bets.
