Premier League acca: Best bets for Saturday

James Milton has selected four bets from Saturday's Premier League action which make up a 14/1 accumulator.

Best bets

Tottenham to win & both teams to score v Luton @ 9/5

Bournemouth double chance v Everton @ 7/8

Over 2.5 goals in Manchester United v Brentford @ 13/20

Under 2.5 goals in Crystal Palace v Nottingham Forest @ 8/13

Accumulator 14/1

Luton v Tottenham (12:30)

Tottenham have scored at least twice in each of their first seven Premier League matches under Ange Postecoglou and they may need to keep that run going if they are to beat Luton at Kenilworth Road.

Spurs needed a bit of luck in last weekend’s controversial 2-1 home win over Liverpool but they are hot favourites for victory over the promoted Hatters.

They thumped Burnley, another of the top flight’s new boys, 5-2 at Turf Moor before a spirited 2-2 draw at derby rivals Arsenal, and Tottenham to win with both teams scoring is an appealing bet on Saturday.

Both teams have found the net in five of Luton’s seven league matches, including the last three, but they have suffered 2-1 home defeats to West Ham and Burnley.

Everton v Bournemouth (15:00)

Bournemouth are yet to win a league game under manager Andoni Iraola but they have had a difficult start, facing five of last season’s top nine plus West Ham and Chelsea in their first seven fixtures.

The Cherries have competed well in most of those games, although they were poor in last weekend’s 4-0 home defeat to Arsenal, and they should be backed to avoid defeat at Everton.

The Toffees have lost all four of their home league games this season, scoring just one goal against Fulham, Wolves, Arsenal and Luton, so they look vulnerable favourites on Saturday.

Manchester United v Brentford (15:00)

Manchester United are desperate for a positive response to their midweek Champions League defeat at home to Galatasaray but visitors Brentford will be confident of troubling the home defence at Old Trafford.

The Bees thrashed United 4-0 last season in the second game of Erik ten Hag’s reign and can contribute to an entertaining clash on Saturday.

Injury-hit United lost 3-2 to Gala after a 1-0 home defeat to Crystal Palace in the league last weekend. Before that reverse they had lost 3-1 to Brighton and beaten Nottingham Forest 3-2 in their previous two outings at Old Trafford and over 2.5 goals looks a solid bet.

Crystal Palace v Nottingham Forest (17:30)

While Manchester United are struggling with defensive injuries, Crystal Palace’s problems are in attack as Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise are sidelined and top scorer Odsonne Edouard is a doubt for their clash with Nottingham Forest.

Edouard has scored four of Palace’s seven league goals this season and, even if he is passed fit, goals could be scarce at Selhurst Park.

The Eagles showcased their defensive quality in the 1-0 win at Old Trafford last time out and Forest’s last five matches in all competitions have ended with under 2.5 goals.
