Not to worry though as there are still ample betting opportunities to come in the top flight, and this week’s set of fixtures looks particularly edifying.
So who makes up this week’s Premier League betting tips?
Burnley vs Huddersfield Town (Saturday, 3pm)
Occasionally, football can surprise you and throw up a random result that simply could not be predicted.
But surely Burnley vs Huddersfield, despite its Lancashire vs Yorkshire connotations, will fizzle out into a low-scoring affair.
The Clarets will look to protect young goalkeeper Nick Pope as much as possible, while Huddersfield have scored once in 270 minutes of top flight football. It is not a recipe for a high-scoring War of the Roses.
Both Teams to Score – No (17/20 with Paddy Power)
Manchester City vs Crystal Palace (Saturday, 3pm)
As punters we always have to be slightly wary about backing teams ahead of a Champions League gameweek. We know that squad rotation is likely, as well as a possible lowering of intensity levels.
The good news here is that Manchester City are in such an incredible run of form that even their fringe players must be feeling like a million dollars at present.
Their goal difference after just five league outings is an incredible +14, and Pep Guardiola even seems to have sorted their famed defensive problems with three clean sheets and just two goals conceded.
Crystal Palace are still to score a Premier League goal in 2017/18, and you can’t really see the City of Manchester Stadium as being the likely venue for them to break the duck. The Eagles have had their wings clipped – and City have not been in a charitable mood so far this term.
Manchester City to Win to Nil (4/5 with BetFred)
Leicester City vs Liverpool (Saturday, 5:30pm)
It may ‘only’ have been the Carabao Cup, but Leicester’s 2-0 win over Liverpool on Tuesday extended a remarkable run which sees the Foxes having won their last three matches against the Reds at the KP Stadium.
Clearly, Liverpool struggle to deal with Leicester’s intensity in front of their own fans, and on Saturday when both teams are back to full strength they may well struggle once again.
Jamie Vardy has made a career in the past few years of having defenders like Dejan Lovren on toast, and the England man will surely enjoy his afternoon’s work again against a rather cumbersome central defensive pairing in Lovren and Joel Matip.
Jurgen Klopp will once again be without Sadio Mane, and the Senegalese winger is so important to his hopes; just see how his side failed to break down Burnley’s rearguard action last week.
Leicester +0.75 Asian Handicap (11/14 with BetFair)
