WE’VE lined up our best exchange lays of the weekend. You’ll find them all at Matchbook.
Bournemouth v Aston Villa | Saturday 15:00
Goals look on the cards in this Premier League fixture with both sides desperate to get off to a winning start to the season. Championship winners Bournemouth scored 98 goals in that division last season, that was the highest number since Reading’s tally of 99 in 2005/06. Manager Eddie Howe has said his players will continue to play with fluency and attacking verve regardless of who they meet in the weeks and months ahead.
Aston Villa were transformed under Tim Sherwood last season and the goals really flowed towards the end of the campaign. Christian Benteke may have gone but his new recruits all have impressive scoring figures to their name. Expect the goals to arrive at Dean Court and take advantage by laying the Under 2/2.5 Goals here at 2.2. If three or more are scored you’ll make a full profit.
Everton v Watford | Saturday 15:00
Matchbook are allowing us to lay Everton at 1.75 here and that’s tempting. The Toffee’s kicked off last season with a 2-2 draw against newly-promoted Leicester and we could see a similar scoreline on Saturday. Roberto Martinez’s side haven’t really made great progress in the transfer market over the summer and a top half finish is by no means a certainty.
Watford on the other hand have been relentless in the market and have pretty much bought a brand new side. How will they go this season? Well that’s the puzzle isn’t it? Adrift at the bottom come May? Possible. Comfortably mid-table? You can’t really rule that out either. Everton may win this if Watford turn out to be poor this year but at cramped odds of 1.75 they’re well worth laying here.
Aberdeen v Kilmarnock | Sunday 15:00
Another side very short at the odds this weekend are Aberdeen. You can back them at 1.40 and lay them at 1.43. It’s the latter that makes more appeal. True, it requires a leap of faith to presume Kilmarnock can get something here. They were awful last week when losing 4-0 to Dundee but the Dons may be on a downer on Sunday.
Yes, Derek McInnes’ side were knocked out of Europe on Thursday against Kazakhstan side Kairat Almaty and that will be a bitter disappointment to all at the club. It may just be that it takes them a while to get into the game on Sunday with tiredness and upset a factor and laying at little-risk odds of 1.43 is worth a go.
