EPL Betting Tips: August 25th, 2018

Graeme Written on Friday, August 24th, 2018

Hi all,

Sorry for no tips the last couple of days. One of my friends was visiting briefly from Turkey, and we went out for lunch on Wednesday. It ended up being one of those very long and very liquid lunches and I came home Wednesday night in no state to do tips! Thursday I was the same – one of those days where you just lay on the couch with sports on all day while wishing for the sweet release of death.

Two 1-1 days for a slight loss recently. On the 21st we lost our small value bet of Ponte Preta to win, but were able to snag a nice double at 2.47 odds in the Brazilian Serie B which was nice.

We hit the Over 2.5 goals in Aston Villa vs Brentford but then unfortunately lost the Sao Paulo bet. Was a surprisingly competitive game from Parana there and was disappointing overall from Sao Paulo.

Quick note I’m off to the cottage for a week beginning tomorrow. Not sure how that will impact the tips – very possible I’ll have a day off every now and again. In saying that, last time I was at the cottage I was able to watch 3-4 World Cup games per day AND provide corresponding tips immediately following. So should hopefully be okay.

Let’s get on with the tips for this weekend:

Wolves vs Man City Betting Tips:

Wolves go into this on the back of a draw against 10 man Everton and a loss against Leicester. It’s not the best start for them and you have to expect this one to not go their way either.

City look like they’re just following on from last season and are crushing everyone. They’ve lost De Bruyne but that hasn’t seemed to affect them.

One thing Guardiola seems to be concerned about this season is complacency and not to get complacent. While I’m sure it’ll happen – it’s only natural – this early in the season I’d like to think it won’t.

Going to take City on the handicap based on their excellent record away last season and how many they won by 2 or more.

Bournemouth vs Everton Betting Tips:

Everton look like one of those teams who will be good to back for high scoring games. They’ve got a very fast attack but look leaky in defense.

A lot of that will be opponent dependent but Bournemouth already scored twice against Cardiff and twice against West Ham so you’ve got to expect them to be confident on the goalscoring front.

So my other leans are:

Liverpool win to nil @ 1.80 Can they really keep another clean sheet??
ARS/WHU Over 3.5 @ 2.10 The way ARS play this could be a no brainer; Emery’s team will tighten up at some point, don’t think it’s here as WHU need to push for a win too
SOU/LEI BTTS-No @ 1.75
NEW/CHE Over 2.5 @ 1.85

I have decided on these to add:

ARS TT Over 2.25 @ 1.89 (2u)
FUL TT Over 1.25 @ 2.09 (1u) Burnley have been travelling in Europe and Fulham have shown enough promise to warrant a few goals here

Prem Parlay 1u @ 1.98
Arsenal @ 1.36
City @ 1.25
Liverpool @ 1.16

Speculative Parlay 0.25 @ 32.17
WOL/MCI Over 4.5 @ 3.75
ARS & Over 3.5 @ 2.60
MU/TOT Draw @ 3.30

I was looking to do a Yankee but couldn’t find something that would fit here. Instead I’m going for results that I think are very conceivable but outcome is another story. My prem parlays over the last two weekends have been very close, my United bias probably cost me last week as I was initially going with just the Saturday games and I thought, well why not beef it up. Classic mistake. Check out my more modest draw predication 🙂 United has let me down the first couple of game weeeks from a betting perspective so hopefully I can get this one right. GLTA


Good to hear you liked the bets I did. I was so tempted to go with Arsenal in some form but I didn’t purely because I think we’re backing them on “Well they’re Arsenal” more than anything else at the moment. Plus there’s something about that team I hate so I’d love to see them get battered. In saying that I’ll pop on your parlays always like doing that for fun.

Will be impressive if Pool keep a clean sheet – they deffo look more solid in defense.


I think City have ruined a lot of peoples parlays already today. Delighted as a football fan but it’s a wake up call in terms of betting the result multiple times (single and parlay). I really didn’t think it would be an issue here but oh well


Love the bets! They were on my shortlist for the weekend, and as you confirmed Bou v Eve over 2.5 was top of it 🙂 Arsenal/WHU over is also up there I just dont know whether to go for team total over or overall over…

MCI (-1) @ 1.81 1u
Bou/Eve over 2.5 @ 1.72 2.5u

I have a euro parlay that’s already started:

Bayern/Hoff over 2.5 @1.36
Juve win @ 1.36
Atleti win @ 1.16

2.5u @ 2.17


As much as I hate to say it this Liverpool team is great to watch, and it looks like they can win ugly now. Much better than City imo. Just wonder if they’ll suffer from Liverpoolitis or Kloppitis when it comes down to it.
CIty Drew 4 and lost 2 last season, it’s safe to say this stat will even out this year. Wolves look like they can survive this year unless injuries play a part
I think there will be a LOT of goals scored in PL this season, more than usual
