It was a miniscule profitable day in what was a really fun day of football with some great games in the EPL. Liverpool vs Chelsea ended up being the deciding factor in profit or loss for the day and thankfully the draw came in.
Some really good games like that West Ham vs Palace game. That was the one I was most focused on and it was great. Tight games featuring Newcastle and Leicester as well.
Good to see Brentford get another point.
Let’s get to the betting tips for the EPL & SPFL games taking place on August 29th.
Burnley vs Leeds
Both teams come in winless. I remember liking Burnley on opening day but they blew that lead to Brighton then lost to Liverpool. Leeds thumped by Man U, had the 2-2 draw against Everton.
Leeds pretty decent favourites. I think both teams can get some goals going though. Leeds arguably the better team, but Burnley at home and up for it.
In saying that – both teams have low xG so far. The odds are 1.72 for over 2.5 goals and I don’t think it’s worth it. So despite leaning in that direction it’s no play for me.
Tottenham vs Watford
Spurs have two wins, two clean sheets now take on Watford who beat Villa 3-2 then lost 2-0 to Brighton.
Good spot for Spurs and I can see the clean sheet happening again here. The odds of that are the same for the handicap though and Tottenham do have the capabilities to put multiple goals past them so 1u on Tottenham -1.5 at 2.25 odds.
Wolves vs Man Utd
After the thumping of Leeds, Man Utd had that tight draw with Southampton which was disappointing.
Have to think Man Utd mentally will be up for it. Signing Ronaldo and the 100th match for Ole. That has to give them a mental boost and I can’t wait to see him play in a couple of weeks.
We’ve seen tight games between these two and Wolves are better than recent results but I feel good with 1u on Man Utd at 1.80 odds.
Rangers vs Celtic
Interesting one. Prior to midweek Celtic were looking like they were on a tear but then they lost in Europe. Rangers missing some players due to COVID.
Celtic look like they might have sorted their defensive issue. Due to COVID and uncertainty over the Rangers team no betting tip here. I’d lean the draw if McGregor is playing and most of the missing guys are back, as McAllister hinted at.
Aberdeen vs Ross County
Aberdeen looking good this season so far. Had that crap result in Europe of course so think they come out fird up after that. Early in the season is important for teams like them, Hearts and Hibs to get momentum going. 1u on Aberdeen -1.5 at 2.75 odds.
St Mirren vs St Johnstone
Both teams looking for their first wins. Neither team has the worst results thogh I mean St Mirren lost to Celtic and Hearts. No shame there. Tight one, draw has value. 0.5u at 3.20 odds.
