The Chelsea v Liverpool game is also the first match I have down for my list of bets so my betting this week will be nicely spread out with one bet on each day.</p><p>Chelsea have been very well organized and, frankly, lucky in the first few games of this season. They got a draw against Swansea last week when their inability to handle pace was exposed and 2 players probably should have been sent off. Liverpool on the other hand, play a high paced dynamic game but they don’t seem to have a plan B right now which is what lets them down at times.</p><p>This weekend I think Conte will be fully prepared for the pace in Liverpools attack and Chelsea will be sitting a lot deeper than we’ve seen them in other games. Hazard could have a good day exploiting the space left at the back as Liverpool push forwards and I think that is what’s likely to lead to Chelsea winning the game.</p><p>BetVictor are offering 2.25 for the home win and I’ve got a little bit on that. This is the kind of high profile game I’d normally leave but I can see a way that Chelsea could win it so I’m backing my own judgment.</p><p>Saturdays bet is on the Manchester City v Bournemouth game. Originally I made this bet when Man City were playing on Tuesday night so they will have 24 hours less rest. They don’t have to travel though and should have a deep enough squad to overcome any tired legs.</p><p>My bet is on Manchester City -2 in the Asian Handicap market. I got on at 2.46 with BetVictor but that line has been closed with that bookie and the best I can realistically find now is <a href="http://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4810&amp;book=Bet365">2.36 with bet365</a>. That cuts back on the value but there is just about enough there for me to still recommend this selection.</p><p>I’m a little surprised at the way the odds have moved. With the reduced rest time City now have, I would have expected the odds to rise, not fall. It may be worth hanging back and seeing if there are any injuries from the rearranged Champions League match before jumping on this one now.</p><p>My final bet of the weekend comes on Sunday and is in the match between Southampton and Swansea. I’ve gone for the draw in this one (<a href="http://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4835&amp;book=Betvictor">3.8 with BetVictor</a>) as neither side seems capable of winning a game right now. It’s early in the season and both sides will improve later on but right now, neither is particularly impressive.</p><p>That rounds out my weekend of Premier League betting.</p>
