Premier League: Looking ahead at Saturday’s week 3 fixtures

The third round of fixtures in the Premier League offer us a couple of interesting fixtures. Most people will point to Arsenal at Liverpool on Sunday as the headliner, but we’ll get to the Sunday lines later.

For now, let’s take a look at Saturday’s slate, which includes six matches.

Right away one fixture catches the eye. Southampton (+108) being the away favorite at Huddersfield Town (+250). The Terriers are the early upstart this year and the bandwagon is rolling thanks to their pleasing-on-the-eye style, but you could also say they’ve been a bit fortunate to come away with six points from their first two matches.

Southampton come in off a wild 3-2 win over West Ham last Saturday. Saints were lucky to escape with three points as they converted two penalties to bail them out because they conceded a two-goal lead, despite being up a man.

It isn’t a wise move to buy into the Huddersfield hype off of their first two results, but it’s been a helter-skelter start to the year for Saints, which is why it is a bit surprising to see them, even with a better squad, getting this kind of love.
