EPL Friday & Saturday betting picks – Matchweek 3

Best bets for Premier League MW3

The English Premier League is in full swing, and with two weeks already behind us, a clearer picture of this season’s trajectory is emerging. While it’s still early days, Matchweek 3 promises further surprises. Read on to see our free EPL betting picks for Friday and Saturday.

Chelsea vs Luton Town

Despite a near-complete overhaul of their starting 11, Chelsea find themselves in a familiar situation. With just one point through two games, they have yet to exhibit a significant change from last season. That being said, they should secure three points with relative ease against Luton Town, a team lacking the resources to stifle Chelsea’s raw talent. However, we expect Chelsea’s defensive inconsistency to surface again, providing Luton with plenty of chances to score as well in what could be a somewhat disorganized game.

Both teams to score


Bournemouth vs Tottenham Hotspur

This line appears rather dismissive of Ange Postecoglou’s Tottenham side. They are performing impressively through two games and are fresh off a noteworthy 2-0 win against Manchester United. Bournemouth, meanwhile, have managed just one point in two games and seemed lacklustre in their recent encounter with Liverpool. Tottenham, even without Harry Kane, have displayed a knack for creating substantial scoring opportunities and should emerge victorious this weekend.

Tottenham to win


Brentford v Crystal Palace

Brentford have carried on their strong conclusion to last term with four points across two games in the new campaign. Their recent 3-0 victory against Fulham affirmed the legitimacy of last year’s ninth-place finish, and this squad might even surpass its predecessor. Their 10-7-2 home record last season was very solid for a team of Brentford’s stature. This favourable home form should extend to this match, where Brentford should overcome a mediocre Crystal Palace side.

Brentford to win


Manchester United v Nottingham Forest

Although Manchester United’s initial performances have been less than impressive, they should exhibit strength in this home match against a weaker opponent. While United’s attacking creativity has been lacking, Nottingham Forest have faced defensive struggles, and the Red Devils should capitalize on these opportunities. However, United’s defence has appeared vulnerable, and Forest have demonstrated their scoring prowess with three goals across two games. Both teams are likely to find space in the attacking third, so there is value to be had in backing both teams to score.

Both teams to score


Brighton & Hove Albion v West Ham United

Brighton have carried their success from last year into the current campaign, securing six points across two games and impressing at both ends of the pitch. Emerging as potential top-four contenders, the Seagulls now face an opportunity to accumulate three more points against West Ham. While West Ham are coming off a 3-1 victory over Chelsea, that outcome appeared more a result of Chelsea’s shortcomings than West Ham’s dominance. Expect the Hammers to come crashing back to earth as Brighton cover the spread.

Brighton -1
