The new Premier League season is still bedding in and that means there are plenty of chances for value bets.

Week 3 looks set to prove no exception and here are our picks for the upcoming round of action.

Everton to win to zero at 3/1

While not a massive price, Everton look a bit of a lock to do the business on Friday evening at Aston Villa.

The Toffees are still to concede this season and with the likes of Bernard, Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson going forward, look really sharp.

Villa's transfer splurge over the summer is still to produce the desired dividends and Dean Smith's side have lost to both Tottenham and Bournemouth.

They may have scored in both games but there doesn't seem to be a pattern to their attack and it is tough to see them troubling this sturdy Everton defence.

Brighton v Southampton – Over 3.5 goals @ 11/4

An all-south coast affair looks to be a handy option for those searching for value on Saturday with Brighton against Southampton a real possibility for goals.

The Seagulls outclassed Watford 3-0 on the opening weekend and were again sharp in last Saturday's 1-1 draw with West Ham and should have taken the points.

Southampton for their part were wasteful in losing 3-0 at Burnley first up but showed signs of improvement in their 2-1 defeat to Liverpool.

Ralph Hasenhuttl is a coach who likes his side to get on the front foot and while this fixture finished 1-0 last term, the reverse game was a 2-2 draw and this could be equally entertaining.

Jamie Vardy – first scorer @ 15/4

Finally, we look at a reasonable price for a first goal scorer and Leicester's Jamie Vardy seems destined to get off the mark for the season away at Sheffield United.

The 32-year-old grew up supporting United's local rivals Sheffield Wednesday and on the return to his home city, is sure to be ready to make an impact.

Chris Wilder's Blades won their first Premier League home match for 12 years last time out as they defeated Crystal Palace 1-0.

The Yorkshire club play with plenty of positivity but that will only open up spaces for Vardy to exploit and he can strike against his boyhood club's rivals.
