Football fans, the Premier League is back. We’ve got a full slate of fixtures this weekend and punters will be building their accumulators ahead of Saturday’s action. Luckily, we are here to offer our best bets on the top flight.
Chelsea and Manchester City are both well fancied to emerge victorious – these two teams headline our latest four-fold. Without further ado, why not scroll down and check out our best Premier League bets on Saturday's football?
AFC Bournemouth vs Leicester City
Eddie Howe’s side have enjoyed a solid start to the 2018/19 campaign and you won’t find too many punters backing against the Cherries here.
Bournemouth will be looking to finish in the top half of the table this season and victory in this clash will give Howe’s men a lift. 27/20 for a home success represents excellent value for a team bang in form.
Random stat of the day:— 888sport (@888sport) August 26, 2018
Bournemouth's recovery from two goals down to draw with Everton means that the Cherries have won a league-high 25 points from losing positions since the beginning of last season.

Leicester have been bright enough themselves – losing only to Manchester United and Liverpool. Claude Puel’s men are arguably the ‘best of the rest’ when it comes to England’s top flight and Foxes fans will be quietly confident ahead of this one.
Leicester have avoided defeat in four of the last five meetings with Bournemouth and 11/25 is worth considering.
TIP: Bournemouth to win @ 27/20
PREDICTED SCORE: Bournemouth 2-0 Leicester (Priced at 11/1 with 888sport)
Chelsea vs Cardiff City
With four wins from four matches, Chelsea are flying high with Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table. The Blues will be expecting to emerge victorious in this fixture; goals will be the order of the day for the hosts.
Maurizio Sarri’s men are 13/10 to win by three or more goals – that could be the way to go if you fancy Chelsea to run riot.
Cardiff have shown glimpses but the Bluebirds haven’t quite managed to get over the line in close contests.
Neil Warnock’s side are in desperate need of three points but backing the visitors to prevail at Stamford Bridge would be foolish. Optimistic Cardiff supporters should take the 5/4 available for over 0.5 away goals this weekend.
TIP: Chelsea to win the first half @ 12/25
PREDICTED SCORE: Chelsea 3-0 Cardiff (Priced at 11/2 with 888sport)
Manchester City vs Fulham
Pep Guardiola’s side have been far from invincible this season but a home encounter with Fulham offers an ideal chance for City to build momentum.
The Blues have avoided defeat in all four matches but needed an outrageous effort from Kyle Walker to get past Newcastle. Expect a response here; 7/20 for City to lead at half-time should be snapped up.

Fulham will be up against it on Saturday afternoon but the 9/10 for the visitors to score over 0.5 goals is one of the bets of the weekend.
Given City’s defensive woes and Fulham’s talent going forward, Slavisa Jokanovic’s side could prosper in the final third at the Etihad Stadium. Keeping City at bay is a completely different question though…
TIP: Man City to win the first half @ 7/20
PREDICTED SCORE: Man City 3-1 Fulham (Priced at 9/1 with 888sport)
Newcastle United vs Arsenal
Rafa Benitez’s side have picked up just one point from their opening four games of the new season and Newcastle fans are fearing the worst.
The Magpies failed to act accordingly in the summer transfer window and Mike Ashley only has himself to blame if Newcastle drop into the second tier. I fancy the hosts to grab a goal this weekend; 4/6 for both teams to score is a solid bet.
Arsenal notched back-to-back wins before the international break and Unai Emery will be hoping that his side can pick up where they left off.
St James’ Park isn’t the easiest ground to visit but Gunners fans will be quietly confident of a successful result. Arsenal are 10/11 to triumph on Saturday afternoon and accumulator builders will like those odds for an away win.
TIP: Both teams to score @ 4/6
PREDICTED SCORE: Newcastle 1-2 Arsenal (Priced at 7/1 with 888sport)
