Weekend Football Tips – 20th & 21st August

Author: Published: August 18, 2022

Football Betting TipsWe have had a cracking start to the season with over £100 in profit racked up over the first two weeks of the new campaign!

That’s because last week’s modest £12.10 profit was added to by a whopping profit of £96 last weekend after the Chelsea and Spurs score draw and Gabriel Jesus scoring the first goal for Arsenal in their victory over Leicester City.

So that’s £108.10 profit over the first two weeks of the season, and if I can keep that kind of performance up over the remainder of the season, I will be more than happy.

It certainly seems spreading my betting options across a wider range of bets, especially those involving goalscorers, has had a positive effect on my bets so I am going to be keeping my eyes out for some of these bets, especially when the value on them is excellent.

It’s been a strange start for David Moyes as the last three clubs he has managed, Everton, Man Utd and West Ham are all occupying the 3 relegation spots and have not yet picked up a point between them. He’ll be looking to improve on that, for West Ham at least, this weekend.

It’s also been a quiet start for Liverpool, who face Manchester United on Monday night, with the Reds picking up two draws and beset by injuries and now suspension for new striker Darwin Nunez, who was sent off in the Reds 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace.

There are some intriguing games coming up this weekend and I have picked out four of them below alongside four tips for each game that I think stands a great chance of success.

Here’s hoping that this selection of tips can keep the winning bets flowing and we can land a hat-trick of profits to start the season off nicely!

Football Betting Tips: Saturday 20th August

Tottenham VS Wolverhampton Wanderers
20/08/2022 12:30 pm GMT

Key Stats

Spurs are 4th in the EPL table and are joint top scorers in the league with 6.
Wolves lie 14th with one point from two. Games, scoring just one goal.
Spurs have won just 1 of their last 5 home games with Wolves, losing 3, drawing 1.
Four of Wolves last five wins in this fixture have all come away from home.

Analysis

Spurs showed real heart last weekend to score late on and pick up a point against Chelsea and they now face a Wolves side who actually have a very good record on the road against Spurs, winning three of their last five games in London against Tottenham.

That will be a warning to Antonio Conte, who sits this one out in the stand after being red-carded against Chelsea last week, and the home side may miss the Italian’s promptings against a Wolves side that are well organised and disciplined.

Having said that, I cannot understand the logic of letting Conor Coady join Everton on loan as he was a huge influence on Wolves over the last few years and I think that is a bad decision and one which will cost Wolves especially in games like this against genuine top six teams.

As such, I feel Spurs will do enough to land the win here and I like the look of a 2-0 victory against a Wolves side that do not concede many goals even against the bets teams, but who also do not score many either.

Prediction

Correct Score – Tottenham to win 2-0 - £10 returns £70.00

Fulham VS Brentford
20/08/2022 3:00 pm GMT

Key Stats

Fulham are 13th in the table with 2 points from two games, scoring 2 goals.
Brentford lie a lofty 3rd in the table with 4 points from their 2 games so far.
The Bees are also one of the top scorers in the EPL with 6 goals in those 2 games.
Fulham have won just 2 of the last 12 between the two. Brentford winning 7.

Analysis

A rare London derby between these two teams who will be relatively satisfied with their starts to the season, well Brentford will be delighted after their astonishing 4-0 victory over Manchester United last weekend where they played superbly to clinch a stunning win.

Fulham though have picked up a point against Liverpool and Wolves in their games and as such, they are not going to be pushovers in this game. However, their record against the Bees is very poor with just one win in the last 12 between the two.

If Fulham are to score, I can see it being from a set piece or penalty which to my mind makes Mitrovic a very solid betting option to score at any time, especially with Bet365 offering well above the even money mark for this outcome.

The Serbian striker is not just Fulham’s penalty taker, he is a real threat from set pieces and corners and I can see him causing the Brentford back line some real problems although I still expect Brentford to eventually get something from this game.

Prediction

Aleksandar Mitrovic to score at any time - £10 returns £23.75

Bournemouth VS Arsenal
20/08/2022 5:30 pm GMT

Key Stats

Bournemouth are 11th in the table after 2 games with 3 points in the bag.
Arsenal are 2nd with a maximum 6 points from 6 from their 2 games.
Only the Gunners and Manchester City have taken maximum points this season.
Bournemouth have beaten Arsenal once in 12 attempts, back in January 2018.

Analysis

I have to say that I have been hugely impressed with how Arsenal have shaped up this season so far and while I can’t quite see them having the legs to make a realistic challenge at the top of the Premier League, their start has given them a real chance to put themselves in pole position for a top four finish.

Gabriel Jesus is making a huge impression and fresh from landing me a £50 win last week by scoring the first goal of the game against Leicester, I think he will also find the net again here against a Bournemouth side who have done well in their games so far.

I do expect the Cherries to struggle a bit this season and especially against the better teams in the Premier League, so this is going to be a real test for them to see how they are shaping up in what will be a tough first season back in the top flight.

Arsenal do worry me a little defensively and I can see Bournemouth scoring a goal in this game but I am backing the Gunners to score at least two, maybe three and to earn their third victory of the season so far here.

Prediction

Arsenal to win and both teams to score - £10 returns £32.50

Football Betting Tips: Sunday 21st August

Leeds United VS Chelsea
21/08/2022 2:00 pm GMT

Key Stats

Leeds lie 6th in the table after 2 games with Chelsea 7th on Goals Scored.
Leeds have won just one of the last 12 between the two teams.
Chelsea have won eight in that period, with 3 draws, and won both games last season.
Thomas Tuchel will be banned from the touchline after his red card against Spurs.

Analysis

Chelsea have had much the better of this fixture in recent years but it is fair to say that Leeds have made a very good start under Jesse Marsch this season and their new signings seem to have hit the ground running and are making a positive impact at the club.

The two teams are famous for a fierce rivalry in the 1970s, which often ended in somewhat notorious scenes during and after games and the remnants of that rivalry still burn with both sets of fans, although things have cooled somewhat between the two since those heady days.

With Thomas Tuchel banished from the dugout after his red card against Spurs last weekend, it is going to be interesting to see whether this affects Chelsea any. The Blues should be professional enough to deal with his absence from the bench but given how expressive and enthusiastic he is, they will miss their German manager.

Leeds will probably happily accept a point if offered that now but their fans wouldn’t and I feel that this atmosphere may benefit Chelsea more than Leeds and as such, I am backing the Londoners to land a narrow win and for Raheem Sterling to finally get off the mark for his new club by scoring the first goal of the game from a Chelsea counter attack.

Prediction

Raheem Sterling to score first - £10 returns £65.00
