The excitement level in the Premier League certainly picked up on Saturday (at least after Cardiff and Newcastle finished 0-0) with some thrillers, including Chelsea defeating Arsenal, 3-2.
Sunday features three vastly different matches with Burnley-Watford, Manchester City-Huddersfield and Manchester United-Brighton on the slate. Week 2 action wraps up on Monday with Crystal Palace hosting Liverpool.
Using the current betting market and historical data, I’ve picked out three value plays.
2018-19 Season Record: 2-5-1, -0.84 units
Watford at Burnley (8:30 a.m. ET, NBC Sports Gold)
- Burnley Odds: +152
- Watford Odds: +229
- Draw Odds: +209
- Over/Under: 2 (u-112)
Watford were a popular pick to be relegated over the summer but the Hornets opened the season nicely with a home win over Brighton, 2-0.
Burnley picked up a road point at Southampton in their opener, and the game ended 0-0 despite a number of scoring chances throughout the match. Having played another Europa League match on Thursday, which went the full 120 minutes, they may be at a slight disadvantage.
