Brighton were exceptional in their opener against Watford, with Graham Potter’s type of football taking effect.
I am not suggesting they’ll be world beaters, but Albion have a wonderful record against West Ham, winning three and drawing one of the past four encounters. There’s no shame at the Hammers dropping their opener 5-0 to Manchester City, but the Amex is going to be expectant, and that I do think 8/5 does look long for Albion to secure a third straight home victory against West Ham.
I have Aston Villa to beat Bournemouth in your home.
I thought Dean Smith’s men were impressive in their challenging opener from Spurs, while Eddie Howe’s men surrendered overdue to draw at home to Sheffield United.
17/10 looks very backable considering Bournemouth dropped 13 of the 19 games away last year, while conceding at least twice in their last 14 on the road in the Prem.
Villa Park will be a tough place to visit this season, and the Cherries are the first to discover that out.
