SUNDAY PREMIER LEAGUE: The Striker previews the three matches on Sunday between BURNLEY v ASTON VILLA, SHEFFIELD UNITED v MAN CITY and NEWCASTLE v LIVERPOOL all with a recommended BETDAQ bet.
BURNLEY V ASTON VILLA
2pm A fascinating Super Sunday for Matchday Three on BETDAQ Betting Exchange. We have something from everyone from the three fixtures; a massive favourite in Manchester City, an away favourite plenty of layers will want to take on in Aston Villa and a top quality affair between Newcastle and Liverpool. We kick the day off with Burnley hosting Aston Villa – it will be interesting to see how Burnley perform here. They opened their season with a loss against Manchester City but they can easily be forgiven there, and then their game last weekend was postponed against Luton Town because Kenilworth Road was still undergoing extensive improvement works to bring the stadium up to Premier League standard. Pretty much their season starts here really; they can’t be judged on facing Manchester City! Aston Villa have one win and one loss, with plenty of goals. They were hammered 5-1 by Newcastle then bounced back to hammer Everton 4-0 last weekend. I have to say the jury is out on Everton this season, they look like they’re going to be heavily involved in the relegation battle – all eyes on their clash with Wolves this weekend!
Luton Town and Sheffield United came up from the Championship with Burnley, but everyone seems confident Burnley will stay in the Premier League this season. They have an excellent manager, they were very impressive in the Championship last season and their xG figures are good. This is a decent test for them to see where we stand; can they handle an Aston Villa side with home advantage? Villa are trading 2.2 at the time of writing with Burnley 3.55 and the draw is 3.7. I know both sides have had Over 2.5 goals in all three of the fixtures they’ve been involved in this season, but this game just screams Unders in my opinion. I can see Burnley sitting back and being a little cagey, with Villa not opening up until not on. I was very surprised to see Over 2.5 goals trading odds on, and Under 2.5 goals looks nice value to me at 2.08 to start the day.

Two points win Under 2.5 goals at 2.08 with BETDAQ BETTING EXCHANGE.

SHEFFIELD UNITED V MANCHESTER CITY
2pm We have the shortest price of the weekend in the Premier League as Sheffield United host Manchester City. Pep Guardiola’s side are trading as short as 1.21 to win here, and it’s very hard to see past a comfortable win. Sheffield United are odds on to get relegated this season, but the result here won’t make or break their season. More concerning is the two losses to Nottingham Forest and here against Crystal Palace – sides they probably need to be picking up points against if they are going to stay up. As I mentioned above about Burnley, you can easily forgive Sheffield United here whatever happens because there’s such a gulf in class between the sides. City haven’t put a foot wrong so far this season, and they had a nice win over Newcastle at the weekend too. They held Newcastle to an xG of just 0.65 controlling the game which is reasonably impressive against a strong Newcastle side these days. I feel it’s a question of how many goals will City score rather than will they win, so we’ll have to look around the side markets for some value here.
The 1.21 will be a very popular addition to any Acca this weekend, and rightly so. The sides have met five times, and all five times City have won. They met last season in the FA Cup and City ran out easy 3-0 winners. They had 76% possession and Sheffield United could only manage an xG of 0.63. Having home advantage for Sheffield United might make the score line respectable, but the market is expecting goals here. Over 2.5 goals is 1.62 while City to cover the 1.5 goal Handicap is actually two ticks shorter at 1.6. Both Teams Not To Score is also trading 1.6, and I have to say I like that bet the most – it takes the amount of City goals out of the question. I struggle to see how Sheffield United will cause this City side problems, especially when City have been so solid at the back this season. Sheffield United’s xG will be low again here, and City can keep a clean sheet.

NEWCASTLE V LIVERPOOL
4.30pm The Premier League have saved the best until last this weekend as Newcastle host Liverpool in the prime TV slot for Super Sunday. This should be a cracker, and of course we have many great memories of this fixture over the years! Who could forget the Stan Collymore goal in injury time with Kevin Keegan slumped in his chair as Newcastle manager. Times have changed a lot since then, and Newcastle are back being a force in the Premier League. It’s a side of the times that they come into this game as the strong favourites. They are trading 2.26 at the time of writing with Liverpool 3.15 and the draw is 4.0. Both sides have already dropped points in big games this season with Newcastle losing to Manchester City last weekend and Liverpool drawing away to Chelsea on the opening weekend. I have to say this will be a fascinating fixture to see where both sides stand this season – a Newcastle win and everyone will say they can hold onto their spot in the Top Four. To be honest though, the way Manchester United and Chelsea have started their seasons there’s room for both these sides in the Top Four!
Liverpool went behind early against Bournemouth last weekend, but they bounced back nicely. You’d have to be impressed with their opening xG figures, however they have conceded in both games – is that a sign that they haven’t fixed their issues at the back? Newcastle had Under 2.5 goals in the City game last weekend, but I really like goals here. Newcastle are less likely to sit back at home, and Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool only know one way to play really. The market is expecting goals with Over 2.5 goals trading 1.54, but I still feel there’s value in that price. This game screams goals to me, and we could have an end-to-end thriller. I’m pretty happy to sit out of the match odds market too; possibly the 2.26 is a little short on Newcastle, but you can’t knock their xG figures from last season so they deserve to be the favourites. I’m pretty confident on goals.
