1. Everton to beat Southampton – (Saturday 3pm)
Everton impressed in their 2-2 draw away to Wolves on the opening day, taking the lead twice despite playing with 10 men for 50 minutes after Phil Jagielka’s red card.
The Toffees should beat Southampton, who had to rely on a man-of-the-match performance from Alex McCarthy to earn a goalless draw at home to Burnley on Sunday and have won just three of their last 26 matches in the Premier League.
2. Richarlison to score against Southampton – (Saturday 3pm)
A price the right side of 3/1 for an attacker who scored a brace on the opening weekend of the season is too good to ignore.
Richarlison scored five goals in his first 12 games in English football under Marco Silva at Watford last season and the stylish manner in which he took his second at Wolves last week suggests the Brazilian has rediscovered his scoring touch.
3. Leeds to beat Rotherham – (Saturday 3pm)
Leeds have won many admirers after opening their campaign with back-to-back victories over fellow promotion contenders Stoke and Derby.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side continued their 100 per cent start to the season with a 2-1 win over Bolton in the first round of the EFL Cup on Tuesday.
United should have too much for Rotherham, who were thrashed 5-1 at Brentford on the opening day.
4. Ipswich to win or draw against Aston Villa – (Saturday 3pm)
A home team will rarely be such a big price to avoid defeat in the Championship, so there is value in backing Ipswich to secure at least a point at Portman Road.
Paul Hurst’s side drew their first home game of the season a fortnight ago, and were unlucky to lose 1-0 at Rotherham last weekend.
Aston Villa have been flattered by a return of six points from two games, relying on late rallies to win both matches, and are worth opposing as big favourites.

5. Walsall v Gillingham BTTS – (Saturday 3pm)
Two teams that have made a high-scoring start to the season meet at the Bescot Stadium, with BTTS available at a fantastic price.
Walsall have scored and conceded in all of their three matches so far this season, and have netted six goals in their last four league home games.
Gillingham have scored five goals in their first two League One matches, but had failed to keep a clean sheet in 11 consecutive league away matches prior to their 2-0 win at promoted Accrington Stanley on the opening weekend.
6. Monaco to beat Lille – (Saturday 7pm)
Monaco started their season with a 3-1 win at Nantes.
Leonardo Jardim’s side were only beaten by Paris Saint-Germain at home last season and dropped just nine points in 19 league games at the Stade Louis II.
Lille lost 13 out of 19 away from home last term and stayed up by just one point.

7. Manchester City and under 3.5 goals - (Sunday 1.30pm)
Huddersfield scored the joint-fewest goals of any top-flight team last season, so it’s safe to assume they won’t trouble Man City, who have started the new campaign with consecutive clean sheets.
However, given that a home win to nil is comfortably odds-on, there’s far more value in backing a City win with under 3.5 goals.
The Terriers twice frustrated the champions last season, drawing 0-0 at the Etihad and only losing at home thanks to a late, deflected winner from Raheem Sterling.
Even if they fail to do so again, City will likely have to score four to stop this bet from coming in.
8. Raheem Sterling to score against Huddersfield – (Sunday 1.30pm)
Sterling is an eye-catching price to find the net against Huddersfield on Sunday, having scored 11 goals in 16 league starts at the Etihad Stadium last season.
The 23-year-old notched on his first two Premier League starts of last season, and can replicate that success after netting at Arsenal last week.
9. Torino v Roma BTTS – (Sunday 5pm)
Torino were the joint-second most reliable BTTS side in Serie A last season, while both teams scored in five of their final six matches of the campaign.
That trend should continue this season after they put four past Cosenza in the Coppa Italia last weekend, with star striker Andrea Belotti getting on the scoresheet twice.
Torino kept a clean sheet in that game, but it’s hard to see them keeping out Roma, who failed to score just three times away from home last term.
10. Inter Milan to beat Sassuolo – (Sunday 7.30pm)
Inter ended last season with four victories from their final six matches three of which were away from home.
After a busy summer of recruitment that has seen Sime Vrsaljko, Radja Nainggolan and Keita Balde arrive at the Giuseppe Meazza, they look in better shape than in May.
Sassuolo have won just five of their last 20 league games and won only two of 12 matches against top-six sides last season.
