This may not be interesting to all, but given we’re a site which focuses on bookies and odds we’re going to start a weekly post on selections we feel the bookies have gotten wrong. This is just a teaser of what may be to come, and we’ll see if there is much interest to it. So find below some of our betting tips for the Premier League.
Fulham – Bournemouth
Why we think the bookies have it wrong:
Bournemouth have been one of the form teams this season, currently lying 6th in the table scoring 16 goals so far. Whilst home side Fulham have only won once and conceded 25 times in their opening 9 games. There have been rumours coming out of Craven Cottage that Jokanović has 2 games to save his job or he faces the sack after spending 100m over the summer.
In their last 3 games alone, they’ve conceded an average of 3 goals, and with little consistency in selection or quality, they are more than likely to continue conceding with some frequency. On paper the players they signed looked to be quality. Andre Schurrle who had played for Dortmund and Chelsea, Seri who had been linked with Barcelona and PSG, and Luciano Vietto from Atletico Madrid. What hadn’t been considered is their defensive line consisted of Tim Ream, Cyrus Christie, Dennis Odoi and Marcus Bettinelli.
Bournemouth on the other hand look a side in form, their new signings have come in and improved their side, and they have competition for places. With Stanislas, Ibe, Brooks and Fraser competing for two positions, players have to perform or they will lose their place.

Watford – Huddersfield
Watford started the season as one of the surprise packages but fell to the side after a run of bad fixtures. After causing a massive upset last week beating Wolves away from home, they could be one of this weekend’s best value picks to win at home to Huddersfield. Roberto Pereyra has been the focal point of their attack and looks to have kicked on after some decent performances last year. The ex-Juve man has already scored 4 times in 9 appearances this season and could repeat that again, against one of the division’s worst sides.
David Wagner’s men have failed to win this season and have only picked up 3 points, with a goal difference of -14 after 9 games. They have lost 4 of their last 5 games and look destined for relegation.
