Premier League Betting Tips – 16-18 August
The Premier League season kicks-off on Saturday with Manchester United up against Swansea.
Premier League Football Tips
Stoke (1.90) v Aston Villa (4.75); Draw (3.40)
Stoke will be looking to replicate their home and away victory over Aston Villa last season, with the Villains travelling to the Britannia Stadium on Saturday.
Much has been made over Aston Villa’s relegation chances this season and the betting odds of 4.00 could continue to tumble should Christian Benteke suffer injury or a loss of form.
Randy Lerner’s failure to sell the club over the summer has left manager Paul Lambert scrambling for signings with the uninspiring trio of Kieran Richardson, Phillipe Senderos and Joe Cole all arriving on free transfers.
Aston Villa lost their last six games away from home last season shipping 17 goals in the process and an opening day match at Stoke may yet go the same way.
Hosts Stoke will certainly carry high expectations of former La Masia prodigy Bojan, with former Manchester United striker Mame Biram Diouf likely to form a new attacking partnership for Mark Hughes.
The Potters will be optimistic about improving upon their ninth finish in the Premier League last term, with highly experienced players Phil Bardsley and Steve Sidwell also adding to the squad.
Only the top five clubs had a better home record than Stoke last season and Mark Hughes’ progressive side look well priced to add to Aston Villa’s worries on Saturday.
