The Premier League returns after a two week break for World Cup qualifiers and with it comes some decent betting opportunities.
Stoke vs Man City
Man City travel to Stoke with two wins under their belts from their opening three Premier League games. Those wins, which featured two clean sheets, sandwiched a 3-2 loss away to Cardiff. The loss to Cardiff saw Javier Garcia start at centre back along with Joleon Lescott, a partnership which is unlikely to be renewed for tomorrow's game. The Lescott/Nastasic combo which started against Hull is far more likely
City have an excellent record against Stoke winning five of their last seven games and have also kept clean sheets in five of their last seven Premier League games.
Recommended bet - Man City to win to nil @ 13/8
Hull vs Cardiff
Hull have only scored one goal so far since their return to the Premier League. That was a Robbie Brady penalty in a win at home to Norwich three weeks ago. They also played two thirds of that game with 10 men after the sending off of Yannick Sagbo. Their other two games were tough tests for the promoted side, against title contenders Chelsea and Man City. They did play well in those games though and kept Man City scoreless for 65 minutes.
Like their fellow newly promoted side, Cardiff also won one game in their opening three games. That was a 3-2 at home to Man City but were prevented from scoring against Everton and West Ham. They are also likely to be without one of their big summer signings, centre back Steven Caulker and goalkeeper David Marshall.
If either of these sides are going to stay up this season then they'll have to be strong at home.
Recommended bet - Cardiff to win and under 2.5 goals @ 18/5
Aston Villa vs Newcastle
Aston Villa have done well to have three points at this stage in the season. After all, they have played Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool. Despite losses to Chelsea and Liverpool they did play well.
Newcastle, who sit just above Aston Villa in the table on four points claimed their first win of the season against Fulham two weeks ago.
Newcastle really do seem to be struggling for goals this season though, something which cannot be said of Villa with Christian Benteke in flying form. Also, their away form in the Premier League is terrible, winning only two of their last twenty one games away from St. James Park.
Recommended bet - Aston Villa to win 11/10
Man City to win to nil - 13/8
Hull to win and under 2.5 goals 18/5
Aston Villa to win 11/10
Those 3 bets in a treble make accumulated odds of just over 24/1.
