thumbnail Hello,

Adam Bate is eyeing victories at White Hart Lane, Stadium of Light and Old Trafford - with a more ambitious punt thrown in for Manchester United in order to get some value


Tottenham
VS
West Brom
Kick off: 15:00 BST
Tip: Tottenham to win at 1/2 with Bet365

Tottenham have a good record against West Brom having done the double over the Baggies last season. Much has been made of Spurs’ supposedly weak striking options but Emmanuel Adebayor and Jermain Defoe each grabbed two goals against Albion in the last campaign.

While it’s true that the north London side have lost considerable guile in the form of Luka Modric, it seems that Gylfi Sigurdsson can be an effective weapon when it comes to beating most sides – and he also netted against West Brom when on loan at Swansea in his previous game against them.

Steve Clarke's side may be buoyant after their 3-0 win over Liverpool expect Spurs to produce something in Andres Villas-Boas’ first competitive game in charge at White Hart Lane. At 1/2 (1.50) their a solid start to the treble.

Sunderland
VS
Reading
Kick-off: 15:00 BST
Tip: Sunderland to win at 17/20 with Bet365

It was a hugely impressive effort by Reading on Wednesday at Stamford Bridge and they were extremely unfortunate to run out 4-2 losers against Chelsea. Such is life in the Premier League that they must now raise themselves once again for a daunting trip to the Stadium of Light.

Sunderland fans have been waiting all summer to get underway here and will be buoyed by the arrival of record signing Steven Fletcher, although he is unlikely to start.

No matter. With the likes of Louis Saha, the Black Cats should still have the firepower to win this one – coming as it does, less than 72 hours after the Royals’ forlorn efforts against the champions of Europe. 17/20 (1.85) looks a tempting price at Bet365.

Manchester United
VS
Fulham
Kick off: 15:00 BST
Tip: Man Utd HT/FT at 4/5 with Bet365

There were lots of recriminations after Monday night’s defeat to Everton. But a trip to Goodison Park is a different proposition to Fulham at home.

As entertaining as Fulham were in their 5-0 win at home to Norwich last weekend, they are not so impressive on their travels – winning just four Premier League games on the road last season.

Robin van Persie could be in line for a first start and with United, having won 49 of their last 57 Premier League home games, are usually a solid bet at Old Trafford. Expect fireworks if Fulham are too open - and it could come early as the United look to kickstart their campaign in front of their own fans. That completes the treble at 4/1 (5.0) with Bet365
