Best Matchday 3 Games to Bet On: 2021-22 EPL Season
Manchester City vs. Arsenal
Where: Etihad Stadium, London, England
When: Saturday, August 28, 2021, 7:30 AM ET
Odds: Manchester City (-455) vs. Arsenal (+1,078); draw: (+501)
After the stunning upset at the hands of Tottenham in their season debut, Manchester City secured their first win in dominant fashion in Matchday 2 by way of a 5-0 win over Norwich. Man City’s newly acquired winger Jack Grealish scored his first goal as a Citizen, which is a good sign for the reigning Premier League champs who are still in search of their next top striker following the loss of Sergio Aguero.
The entire Arsenal fanbase, on the other hand, mourns its favorite team’s abysmal start to the new season. The Gunners have no ammo in stock whatsoever, failing to score a single goal in their first two matches whilst ceding two goals apiece to Chelsea and Brentford. The absences of key players Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacasette are partly to blame and Arsenal needs to find some form of offense this week before Mikel Arteta’s head is put on the chopping block.
West Ham United vs. Crystal Palace
Where: London Stadium, Manchester, England
When: Saturday, August 28, 2021, 10:00 AM ET
Odds: West Ham United (-182) vs. Crystal Palace (+492); draw: (+295)
The biggest surprise of the season thus far is West ham United, who’ve carried over their terrific form from the previous season into the 2021-22 campaign early on. The Hammers have the most goals amongst all Premiere League clubs thus far with eight en route to dominant victories over Leicester and Newcastle.
Next up for West Ham is a date against Crystal Palace which, similar to Arsenal, have yet to score a goal this season. The only saving grace for the Eagles is that they finished with a scoreless draw in their season debut against Brentford to keep them just slightly above the relegation basement of the standings.
Liverpool vs. Chelsea
Where: Anfield, Merseyside, England
When: Saturday, August 28, 2021, 12:30 PM ET
Odds: Liverpool (+138) vs. Chelsea (+185); draw: (+237)
It can’t get any better than two undefeated sides going one-on-one for the first time. Both Liverpool and Chelsea are expected to be in the hunt for the Champions League trophy this season and this blockbuster matchup will set the pace for both clubs looking to take the top spot of the leaderboards from West Ham.
History is on the Reds’ side in this fixture, as Liverpool is 4-1 in its last five Premier League meetings against the Blues. However, Chelsea did secure a 1-0 victory in Anfield the last time these two decorated clubs met, which is why the odds have this matchup going either way. Arsenal and Chelsea have both scored five goals apiece without giving up a single score to their first two opponents this season.
