The first midweek Premier League games of the season are upon us and i have picked out some bets for Tuesday nights action. You can back all these bets individually at reasonable odds or you can put them together as a treble that pays 8/1. (All odds are with William Hill)
Crystal Palace vs Brentford (both teams to score no draw 7/4)
This one has the potential to be a goalfest if recent showings are anything to go by. Both sides have played their part in some exhilarating games this season with 12 goals being scored in Palace’s first three games, and 11 goals scored in Brentford’s first three games.
Both teams to score no draw has come in for Crystal Palace’s last two games and both teams have scored in Brentford’s last two games. I can’t not put out a little disclosure warning though, the last two meetings between the sides have been bore draws, so I am having to trust my gut a bit with this one.
Leeds vs Everton (Leeds to win 11/10)
Jesse Marsch is starting to build something at Leeds and the fans looks like they are warming to him. Elland Road was bouncing for the duration of his sides 3-0 win against Chelsea and we are beginning to see what Marsch’s style of play will look like going forward. Everton are winless in their first four games with two draws and two losses and still don’t seem to have an identity under Frank Lampard.
I fear for the Toffees and I don’t see where there goals are going to come from this season. The addition of Neil Maupay isn’t bad business but will it be enough to improve their fortunes? It remains to be seen.
Southampton vs Chelsea (Chelsea to win 4/7)
Chelsea have had a turbulent start to the season but still have seven points to show for their efforts. The 3-0 defeat to Leeds highlighted some frailties in Chelsea’s side, in particular the midfield. Conor Gallagher’s suspension shouldn’t have too much of a negative impact, he hasn’t looked the same player he was at Palace but it is still very early days for the England international.
The Blues have shown their quality in patches, against Tottenham they dominated the game and were unlucky to not get all three points, against Leicester they went down to 10 men early and still went on to score twice in a 2-1 win. Up next they face a Southampton side that have taken four points from their opening four games. The Saints have a long season ahead with very few additions added to the squad over the summer window, there is a lot of pressure on Che Adams to deliver if they are to avoid the drop.
