Villa a tempting price to beat poor travellers Bournemouth
Back Aston Villa @ 2.466/4 against Bournemouth
I thought Bournemouth would win against a newly-promoted side at home, but after Sheffield United not only came away with a point, looking good doing it, it made me re-evaluate the Cherries going into this game.
Aston Villa, looked very strong in their 3-1 defeat away at Tottenham in their opening Premier League match. It's no shame losing to one of the most difficult sides to play in the league upon your return to top-flight football and for a good 60-70 minutes, Villa looked like they were going to pull off the biggest upset. It wasn't to be but there were a lot of positives to be take from that match.
If you pair that with the Cherries' performance in their opening match at home along with the fact that last season their travelling form was one of the worst (16th in away table; W5-D1-L13), I think 2.466/4 is a very tempting price for a home victory.

Saints can hold tired Reds
Back Southampton/Draw v Liverpool @ 2.962/1
On any usual weekend, Liverpool would form part of your Saturday acca when visiting Southampton but, as mentioned in my Saturday 3pms preview, the fact the Reds had a draining 120 minutes in midweek and a trip back from Turkey is enough to put me off.
While Southampton were on the wrong end of a 3-0 result at Burnley last week, the match was more even than the scoreline suggested, and Ralph Hasenhuttl will be looking for an immediate response in front of their own fans.
Saints, who have a fully fit squad to call on, have won two and drawn one of their last five home meetings against Jurgen Klopp's men and, at just shy of 2/1, I'll take a chance they can avoid defeat against a hopefully under par Liverpool outfit.

Arsenal to enjoy home comforts against Clarets
Back Arsenal -1 v Burnley, Aubameyang to score and Over 2.5 Goals at 3.02/1 (Same Game Multi)
Arsenal are a generally reliable betting proposition when playing at home, particularly against the weaker sides, and it should be a straightforward win when Burnley visit in the early game on Saturday.
The Gunners have won their last 10 matches against the Clarets in all competitions, a run stretching back to March 2010, and have picked up maximum points in all of their seven meetings at the Emirates, scoring 21 goals and conceding just four.
Easy to see why they are 1.341/3 shots on the Exchange then, but I'll boost to 2/1 by taking the Gunners on a one-goal handicap, adding Over 2.5 Goals - a bet that has landed in all seven of those Emirates clashes - and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score.
The Arsenal frontman has a fantastic record against the Clarets, scoring a brace in all three games in which he has faced them, comes off a goal last week and is likely to be on penalty duty.

Foxes to round off bad week for Chelsea
Back Leicester/Draw v Chelsea @ 11/10
Let's face it, so far this hasn't been Chelsea's week.
After a 4-0 mauling at Old Trafford, Frank Lampard's side travelled all the way to Turkey to play in the European Super Cup, going through 120 sapping minutes in the sweltering heat of Istanbul and losing on penalties. There were plenty of positives to take from both matches despite the outcomes, but after such a taxing week, they would have liked an easier game this weekend.
Instead they play a Leicester side fancied by many to be a real challenger for a top six finish this season. The Foxes had to settle for a goalless draw against highly-rated Wolves (5th in Infogol's 18/19 xG table) last weekend, but this task suits Brendan Rodgers' side much more, as they finished 18/19 with a positive expected goal difference from the 12 matches against the 'big six'.
This tells us that not only do they get results against the top six (11 points last season), their performances are solid in those matches. Throw in the fact that they beat Chelsea 1-0 in this fixture last season, and I think the 11/10 on offer for Leicester or Draw makes great appeal, especially given Chelsea's midweek exertions.
