Celta Vigo and Real Sociedad to draw – 5/2*
Live on Sky Sports Red Button, kick-off 17:15 BST.
Eusebio Sacristan’s side finished an impressive sixth last term, improving by 16 points on their 2015/16 campaign.
Sociedad have also invested well this summer, adding former Manchester United man Adnan Januzaj for £7,650,000 and Real Madrid centre back Diego Llorente for £5,400,000.
However, Balaidos is a tough place to go and Celta have a solid recent record against the San Sebastian side.
Four of the last five meetings in Vigo between these two have ended draws, so back last season’s Europa League semi-finalists Celta to bag a point.
Sunderland to beat Leeds United – 5/4*
Live on Sky Sports Football and Main Event, kick-off 17:30 BST.
The newly relegated Black Cats are unbeaten under Simon Grayson this term and he’ll look to continue this record heading into a clash with his former club.
Sunderland have won each of their last three meetings with Leeds and the Yorkshire outfit are goalless in their last two Championship outings.
RB Leipzig to beat Schalke – 6/4*
Live on BT Sport 3, kick-off 17:30 BST.
Leipzig stunned many with their debut season in the Bundesliga, finishing second to Bayern Munich last term.
And they haven’t stood still in the transfer market either, bringing in Bruma from Galatasaray – a man who scored 11 and made nine assists in all competitions last campaign.
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men won their last meeting against Schalke and look set to kick-off their title pursuit with a win.
Huddersfield Town to beat Newcastle United – 6/4*
Live on Sky Sports Football and Main Event, kick-off 13:30 BST.
David Wagner’s newly promoted Terriers shocked Crystal Palace in their own backyard, by winning their first-ever Premier League game.
The Yorkshire club now boast much needed momentum when facing Newcastle, a side that lost 2-0 at home and had Jonjo Shelvey sent off.
Therefore, look to back the Terriers to topple Rafael Benitez’s Magpies, who are missing two defenders.
Tottenham and Chelsea to draw – 13/5*
Live on Sky Sports Premier League and Main Event, kick-off 16:00 BST
On the back of winning the Premier League convincingly last term, Chelsea haven’t had the best of summers.
Having Romelu Lukaku snatched away to Manchester United from under their noses, doubts surrounding Antonio Conte’s future and Diego Costa on strike – it’s been a tough few months.
Combine this with an opening day loss to Burnley, and it might be a good time to play the Stamford Bridge side.
However, this will be Tottenham’s first game home PL game at Wembley while their new stadium is built, a site where they have previously struggled.
Therefore, back Spurs to secure a point against the reigning champions.
