Week 1 results: 2 wins 1 push YTD: 2-0-1
EPL (Saturday August 19th)
West Ham at Southampton
After a busy offseason of signings for West Ham it was a rough start to their EPL campaign with a 4-0 away loss to Manchester United but they’ll look to bounce back on Saturday against a Southampton side that couldn’t find the net in a 0-0 draw with Swansea while registering only 2 shots on target with an astounding 29 attempts on goal. It may be too early to weed out the sides that are willing to settle for midpack in the EPL this season but getting nearly a full goal here with the visitors in a play in my books. The Prediction is West Ham +0.5 and +1 –103 (note: some books may offer +1 –145)

EPL (Saturday August 19th)
Manchester United at Swansea
United kicked off their new season with a new striker in Romelo Lukaku and he didn’t disappoint with a couple strikes in a 4-0 win over West Ham and they’ll take to the road to meet a Swansea side coming off a 0-0 away draw and these teams have provided fans and wagering public with goals when they’ve met previously. 8 of the last 10 meetings have produced 3 or more goals and at Liberty Stadium the last 4 have produced 15 goals (4 overs). The Prediction is OVER 2.5 -115
Italy Serie A (Sunday August 20th)
Chievo at Udinese
Opening weekend in Italy’s top league and one that should be tight up top this season with Juventus, Napoli, Inter, Roma and Milan all with an eye on the title after an interesting transfer offseason. We’ll start with a play on Udinese at home against Chievo. Udinese were tough many times at home against the top 6 and did claim a couple of scalps and picked up points in other matches and will look for a positive start on Sunday against a Chievo side that dropped 9 matches away last season while getting outscores 31-18. The Prediction is Udinese +108
