Our tipsters picks for the weekend's 4 televised matches

Last week the wait for the start of the Premier League season was finally over as Pep, Jose, Jurgen & Tony all saw their teams record valuable wins whilst last season’s top two sides, Arsenal and champions Leicester fell at the first hurdle. Looking ahead to this weekend of football, we’ve taken four of our top pundits and locked them in a room until they offered up their TV tips to help us plan our punting. Andy Gray, Paddy Power, one of our PP football traders and our mathematically gifted super-computer (KARL) are here to hopefully point you in the direction of a few winners.

Our pundits are united across the board that the early Sunday derby between Sunderland and Middlesbrough will end in a draw for the two North East clubs. Andy Gray fancies Stoke City to pinch a point from Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in Saturday’s early kick-off whilst our other pundits all think that a City win is inevitable. Looking ahead to the Leicester v Arsenal clash, Andy Gray and CARL both fancy a draw, Paddy Power himself fancies the Gooners to repeat last season’s victory at the King Power, whilst our trader thinks that Claudio Ranieri’s men will return to winning ways on Saturday evening. Finally in the Sunday 4pm game at the Olympic Stadium (still sounds weird) Andy and Paddy fancy West Ham will make it a winning home start, whilst CARL and the Trader feel that a draw is on the cards.

The accumulator on a Man City win followed by 3 draws pays out at a whopping 60/1.
