The Premier League returns after the international break
The pick of the weekend’s betting opportunities as follows:
Burnley v West Ham United
Burnley are unbeaten in six games, including notable results away at Liverpool and Everton. Thier strength is their defensive cohesion and organisation, they are simply very difficult to break down. They tend to draw games rather than win them because of some lack of firepower in attacking areas
West Ham eased the pressure on manager Saven Bilic with a home win against Swansea before the international break.They are still underperforming expectations though, and this is a tough task for an inconsistent side
Burnley are 17/10 West Ham 15/8 for this game with BetVictor. Burnley are simply a very attractive price here.
Swansea City v Huddersfield Town
Swansea remain in the bottom three having lost at West Ham last time out. This is the type of game they must be looking to win in their hopes of climbing the table.
After a very promising start Huddersfield’s form has tgailed off somewhat with no wins in their last six games although it has been a tougher run of games. What they do have in their favour is great organisation that should stand the in good stead.They have drawn three of those last six games
Odds here are 11/10 Swansea best price, which looks prety short. Huddersfield at 11/4 is possibly a stretch too far. The Draw at 11/5 at BetVictor looks a very reasonable proposition.
Leicester City v West Bromwich Albion
Leicester go into the game after a very tough run of games to start the season with only one win and two draws from their seven games. Thier particular problem here is a selection issue in midfield where James and Ndidi are injured, Silva cannot be selected and Drinkwater was sold leaving King and Iborra as the only fit central midfielders.
Against a physical team like West Brom, who are strong from set pieces and combative from back to front this could be an issue. West Brom are mid table and as long as 16/5 for the win here with BetVictor. Leicester at evens just looks too short.
