There’s another exciting round of Premier League matches this weekend and we start at Old Trafford for the first Manchester derby of the season.
United are slight favourites (13/8 BetVictor) to land a victory which would see them leapfrog their City rivals, while the visitors can be backed at 7/4 (Stan James) to claim the bragging rights and a very important win.
The draw is on offer at 12/5 (bet365) although the Red Devils will feel confident of beating opponents missing their best two attacking players in Silva and Aguero. William Hill go 16/5 that United lead at half-time and full-time, with Wayne Rooney looking like a good shout at 13/2 (BetVictor) to break the deadlock.
Also on Sunday we have Liverpool’s first Premier League home match under Jurgen Klopp.
Winner.com make the Reds a 10/11 chance to beat a Southampton side who did land a 3-1 win at Stamford Bridge recently and some might regard the Saints as a cracking bet at 3/1 (Sky Bet).
Another Liverpool draw can be backed at 12/5 (Paddy Power), with Klopp still missing key personnel, while the visitors are sure to be dangerous and perhaps the best bet is both teams to score at 4/5 (BetVictor), while Over 2.5 Goals is on offer at evens (Winner.com).
Then we have the Tyne-Wear derby on what is definitely a Super Sunday and Sam Allardyce will desperately want to land victory against one of his former clubs.
William Hill offer 11/8 that the Black Cats win their first match of the campaign, although Newcastle won 6-2 last weekend and the Magpies are 2/1 (Stan James) to follow that up with a famous win here.
On Saturday evening, we have another televised fixture in the form of Arsenal v Everton and the Gunners are predictably big favourites to go top of the Premier League with a win.
Arsene Wenger’s team are a 4/9 chance (Paddy Power) to claim a three-point haul and a tempting 11/10 (Sky Bet) to lead at half-time and full-time. The Toffees are 7/1 (bet365) to stun the home supporters with a surprise win.
Tim Sherwood is current favourite in the Sack Race market and his Aston Villa side are as big as 2/1 (William Hill) to beat Swansea on Saturday, with Garry Monk also under pressure after a poor run from the Swans. The visitors are 8/5 (Winner.com) to claim victory at Villa Park and the draw is a 12/5 chance (Stan James).
Leicester and Crystal Palace have both enjoyed bright starts to the campaign and the Foxes are 13/10 (Paddy Power) to beat the Eagles.
However, Alan Pardew normally gets his tactics spot-on for away games and the London side are 11/5 (bet365) to come away from the Midlands with yet another away win.
Norwich City are even money (Sky Bet) to beat a West Brom side who ground out a win against Sunderland last week and the Baggies look a big price to do a number on a Canaries side that lost 6-2 to Newcastle last Sunday. Back Tony Pulis’ side at 3/1 (Ladbrokes) if you fancy the away victory.
Stoke and Watford clash at the Britannia Stadium, with the Potters enjoying a winning run and they are 11/10 (Stan James) to get the job done again. The Hornets will look to keep things tight and BetVictor have a massive 29/10 that the visitors win, although Under 2.5 Goals looks on the cards at 8/13 (William Hill).
West Ham are probably too big (3/1 Paddy Power) to overcome a Chelsea team who had a Champions League date on Tuesday, with the Blues 19/20 (bet365) to record consecutive victories for the first time this season in the Premier League.
Finally on Sunday, we have Bournemouth entertaining Tottenham and the Cherries can be backed at 9/4 (Stan James) to land a much-needed three-point haul after being demolished at Manchester City.
Spurs will look to capitalise and Paddy Power quote 13/10 that the visitors have too much for the Premier League new boys.
Can anyone stop New Zealand in the Rugby World Cup? The All Blacks were 5/4 before the tournament began although Winner.com now offer a best price 8/13 about them claiming the William Webb Ellis Trophy for the third time.
The Kiwis face South Africa on Saturday and bet365 offer 2/7 that they book their place in the World Cup final with a win, with the Springboks looking to cause an upset at odds of 11/4 (BetVictor).
Meanwhile, the second semi-final between Australia and Argentina could be a much closer affair, with the Pumas surely overpriced at 12/5 (William Hill) after steam-rollering Ireland in their last eight match to ensure a comfortable victory.
The Wallabies are 2/5 (Sky Bet) to secure their spot in the final, although we think that Argentina with a +6 handicap at 10/11 with bet365 looks like a tremendous bet, with the Pumas ready to serve it up as underdogs.
Betting Tip: West Brom to win at Norwich @ 3/1 with Ladbrokes.
