This weekend presents a mixed bag of Premier League fixtures, and on Bookiesmash we're here to help you negotiate the tricky business of how to make the most out of betting on the world's most competitive league.
Once again, Saturday throws up an intriguing early kickoff, as Chelsea returns to torment Liverpool once again. Steven Gerrard will remember all too well the slip that let Demba Ba in to score for the Blues at Anfield, effectively handing Manchester City the Premier League title.
Liverpool has a weaker team and far more problems this season, but the sense of this being a make-or-break match for both teams' seasons remains.
If Liverpool is beaten, it leaves them almost terminally off the pace of the leaders, but if Chelsea is beaten, then it will send a signal to the rest of the league that this strongest of squads actually has a weakness. Most likely is a Chelsea win at Anfield; Betway offer 11/4 for the Blues to lead in both halves.
Later on Saturday, Burnley has what is surely the team's best chance yet to win their first Premier League match this season. This can be a punishing league for new teams, and Burnley has looked inferior to each of its opponents — in spite of having a fine team ethic and quality in the shape of striker Danny Ings and midfielder Scott Arfield.
Hull City is no slouch, and Steve Bruce has improved on the side that reached the FA Cup final in May, but they remain inconsistent and Turf Moor is not an easy place to go and get a result.
We're going to be brave and predict a Burnley win; you'll get odds of 7/4 with Betway for this to happen.
Another side that can surprise the bookmakers with a win is Newcastle, who travel to The Hawthorns to take on West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.
Though West Brom has been in good form of late, Newcastle has been roaring up the table, with Alan Pardew having seen key players return from injury and turned around the side's form. Newcastle are a tasty 11/5 with Betway to take a win from this match.
