Round 10 of the Premier League features the Manchester Derby, plus some intriguing-looking contests. Dive into our betting tips and predictions to make the most out of the weekend action.
Aston Villa vs Luton Sun 29th 14:00
Aston Villa to win – 1.3
High-flying Aston Villa look set to dominate against Luton. Villa have put together a run of 11 consecutive home league victories, including an impressive 4-1 win over West Ham in their last home game.
At the same time, Luton is struggling down in 17th place with just 5 points and one win. They have found life in the Premier League extremely difficult and there is a distinct lack of quality in their squad.
It all points to a comfortable home win, so despite the very short odds, we can recommend betting on a Villa victory.

Manchester United v Manchester City Sun 29th 15:30
City to win and over 2.5 goals – 2.5
The Manchester Derby is always a huge occasion and this Sunday’s encounter is no different. Manchester City have experienced a recent blip in their league form, but last week’s win over Brighton has got them back on track.
Meanwhile, United have picked up narrow wins over Brentford and Sheffield United in recent games, but there’s a feeling these wins are just papering over the cracks in a poor-looking Red Devils squad. Simply put, City look like a far stronger team and we expect them to comfortably beat their rivals.
Given United’s defensive frailty, we expect plenty of goals in this one. Our recommendation is for a City win and over 2.5 goals in the game.

Wolves vs Newcastle Sat 28th
17:30 Pedro Neto to assist a goal – 3
Newcastle travel to Molineux to face Wolves on Saturday evening, in an even-looking contest. Newcastle is a slight favourite with the bookies, but this is a game that could go either way. As such, we are advising against any outright bets. Instead, there is value to be found in one of the more niche prop markets.
Wolves’ wideman Pedro Neto is currently responsible for a league-high five assists already this season. With Newcastle looking slightly vulnerable in defensive wide areas, we think Neto has a superb chance of providing some great ammunition for the Wolves’ frontline.
The odds of 3 on Neto assisting a goal look like excellent value, and is our betting tip for the game.
