Let the games begin!

Maali came out a disappointing fourth, a neck out of 3rd place. Frustrating back-to-back days of losses in racing (after a great sequence of good runs), and maybe it's good that the EPL is finally starting this week-end.

The opening week looks loaded with minefields. Man Utd travel to WBA and it would be a mistake to see this as a cake-walk for the Red Devils. Roy Hodgson has done very well against the champions in his days at Fulham. His team is bound to give Utd a tough game. Logically, Utd should be able to prevail but it could be nail-biting for most of the match for its supporters and backers. The banker I see is Man City hosting Swansea and a great occasion for the Citizens to announce their intent in a blistering fashion. On paper, this is going to be an easy home win and I recommend Mancini's men as a Win.

For those looking for some value bet, maybe siding with Wolves might be rewarding. McCarthy's men visit Blackburn and if the past season serves as reference, Wolves are more dangerous as visitors than as hosts. So a draw-no-bet on Wolves could be worth the risk, in my opinion.

I don't usually give Championship recommendations but Leicester are looking good this year and will be tough to beat as they host Reading. I recommend Sven Ericsson's men as draw-no-bet.

Win: Man City
Draw-no-bet: Leicester
Draw-no-bet(value): Wolves
