Wolves vs Tottenham
Raul Jimenez made a long-awaited return to his Wolverhampton side after having spent the majority of last season out injured. His absence made it difficult for Wolves last season who finished 13th in the table. The club parted ways with Nuno Espírito Santo during the summer who has went on to take over Sunday’s opponent Tottenham. Nuno played an important role in Wolves’ fight back to the Premier League and will be missed at the Molineux.
Tottenham managed to pull off a surprising win last weekend when they defeated the current champions Manchester City. Harry Kane was still not to be seen after a turbulent summer transfer window where has been heavily linked with a move away from the club. It’s a massive blow for Spurs to not have their best player available in the beginning of the season but facing Wolverhampton at this early stage might play to their advantage. Wolves are missing several players due to injuries and didn’t look too sharp against Leicester. We believe Tottenham have the qualities to get all three points from the Molineux and go with Spurs to win, paying 120 @BetMGM.
Arsenal vs Chelsea
Arsenal vs Chelsea will round off a great Premier League weekend. The North London Derby will be the 204thgame between the two sides and it's Arsenal who’ve got the better of Chelsea historically with 79 wins against 65. Unfortunately for all Arsenal fans these numbers don’t describe the current situation as Chelsea are the ones finding themselves in a better position. Arsenal opened their season with a disappointing 2-0 loss against Brentford. It was another one of those games that we have got to get used to from Arsenal in recent seasons. Weak, non-existent confidence and lack of leadership on the pitch.
Chelsea continued their impressive run under Thomas Tuchel when they beat Crystal Palace by 3-0 last week. It was a strong win where Chelsea had control of the game from the start. Looking at Sunday’s derby game Chelsea are big favorites to win. The odds are slightly low on the away team as it’s still Arsenal who awaits. Instead, we believe in goals here as Arsenal can’t afford another defeat in front of their fans when one of their bitter rivals are visiting. Over 2.5 goals during regular time pays -105 @BetMGM.
- Spurs to win, 120 @BetMGM
- Over 2.5 goals in Arsenal vs Chelsea, -105 @BetMGM
