Manchester United v Brighton
Live on Sky Sports
Kevin Hatchard says: "Brighton lost just four Premier League away games last season, drew at Liverpool and Chelsea and won at Arsenal and Spurs. They also started last season strongly, winning four of their first five league games.
"They have only lost four of their last 32 away matches in the top flight by a multiple-goal margin, so I'm happy to back them +1.0 on the Asian Handicap here at 1.824/5. We only lose the bet if United win the match by two goals or more."
Kev's bet: Back Brighton +1.0 on the Asian Handicap at 1.824/5
Leicester 2.111/10 v Brentford 3.814/5, the Draw 3.814/5
Alex Boyes says: "After keeping a clean sheet in two of their first three Premier League away games, Brentford have conceded in each of their last 16 on the road. However, the Bees did win four of their last six away league games last term (L2), double the amount they had in their first 13 (W2 D4 L7)."
Alex's bet: Back Brentford to win & both teams to score @ 6.05/1
Stuttgart 4.67/2 v RB Leipzig 1.834/5, the Draw 4.1

Kevin Hatchard says: "The retention of Christopher Nkunku was the most important development (for Leipzig this summer). The French international scored 35 goals in all competitions last term, and was voted as the Bundesliga's Player of the Season, ahead of the likes of Robert Lewandowski and Erling Haaland. I can't believe Nkunku is priced at 2.89/5 on the Sportsbook to find the net in the season opener at Stuttgart, and I'm happy to take advantage.
"Stuttgart barely avoided the relegation playoff last season, as a last-gasp goal on the final matchday saw them finish above Hertha Berlin, but it appears few lessons have been learned. The club commendably operates a policy of youth development, but if important players like Borna Sosa and Sasa Kalajdzic leave before the transfer window shuts, I think coach Pellegrino Matarazzo will need to work his magic again."
Kevin's bet: Back Christopher Nkunku to score @ 2.89/5
West Ham 9.08/1 v Man City 1.42/5, the Draw 5.79/2
Live on Sky Sports Premier League
Paul Higham says: "City are short enough at 1.42/5 but with a 13-game unbeaten streak against the Hammers that's fair enough. Only Spurs (38) have lost more games against reigning champions than West Ham's 36 so there deferential nature against the big boys explains their 9.08/1 price of an opening day upset.
"Strange things do happen on opening day though, and with this season starting early due to the World Cup then don't sleep on the draw at 5.59/2 - as that's been the 90-minute result in the last three meetings at the London Stadium.
"West Ham have a lot of the right ingredients to get some joy against City - especially right out of the gate in a new season with plenty of player turnover, but City have lost just once in 28 let's not forget, and went unbeaten in 18 on the road after losing at Tottenham last season."
Paul's bet: Back Man City & both teams to score @ 3.02/1
Tom Victor says: "West Ham will be pleased with their results against Manchester City last season, knocking Pep Guardiola's side out of the League Cup on penalties before earning a point at home in the league and only losing narrowly at the Etihad Stadium.
"You have to go back to 2014 for their last home league win in this fixture, though, with Morgan Amalfitano and Diafra Sakho on target in a 2-1 victory.
"The home support will be out in force for the first London Stadium game of the new season, and the hosts' new signings will want to make an instant impact. It might not be enough, though, and Manchester City should have a slight edge as they look to begin the season with a win here after doing the same back in 2019."
Tom's bet: Back 0-3 @ 11.0010/1
