You are here

The first weekend of the Premier League brought plenty of upsets, with only Manchester United winning as far as the big favorites were concerned. We still have the Monday match to bet on, however, and it is clear that many punters will be looking to recoup their losses by betting on Manchester City to defeat West Bromwich, something that you can currently back at 1.66 with Unibet.

Is that really a good bet, however? Well, if the weekend is anything to go by, it probably isn't. There are two big factors here - firstly, West Bromwich are the home team and that tends to be important early on. Secondly, Manchester City have changed the squad quite a bit and might need some time to gel together and play with flair. West Bromwich look more stable and their tactics will probably be much more defensive - and you simply don't need the same amount of co-operation for that to work well. The home team will be trying to throw spanner in the works, the away team will be trying to get some combinational play going - well, considering that we're yet to see the new Manchester City in full swing, we think that the home team might be worth backing on Monday.

The bet we're going to recommend is on West Bromwich on the +1 Asian Handicap, which is on offer at 1.75 with BetVictor. If they lose by a goal, the stake is going to be returned - and we really think that they are going to keep matters tight under the current circumstances.

Our selections:
