The Acca Scout from oddschecker shares betting tips for the weekend Premier League fixtures, including team news, tips & the best of the boosts!
Maddison the man to reverse Rodgers' recent league woes
James Maddison has taken 20 of Leicester City's 78 shots (25.6%) across their seven Premier League matches so far. The 25-year-old, a scorer of three goals in the last six, is a best price 5/2 to score anytime tonight (worst 6/4).
Indeed, he seems the likeliest to pull Brendan Rodgers out of the precarious position he finds himself in. Rodgers, 3/1 in the Next Manager to Leave market, could lose three consecutive home league games for the first time as a manager.
Birthday goal repeat for Iheanacho?
Kelechi Iheanacho can score a Premier League goal on his birthday for the second year in a row, emulating Teddy Sheringham in 1994 and 1995. The Nigerian forward is a best price 7/4 to score anytime for Leicester against Nottingham Forest (worst price 11/10).
Halaand to shine in the Manchester Derby
Paddy Power are offering a significant price boost on Erling Halaand to have one or more shots on target in each half, boosted from EVENS to 2/1.
Low scoring affair in the late Premier League kick off this evening
Both West Ham and Wolves are the lowest scorers in the division, both scoring three goals a piece. With both sides struggling in attack, under 1.5 goals might be the play.
You can back that at best priced odds of 9/4 (worst priced odds of 19/10).
Firmino to score for the Reds?
On Roberto Firmino's last two starts at Anfield in the Premier League, he scored three goals, two against Bournemouth and one against Newcastle.
He starts again today against Brighton in front of the Liverpool faithful. Firmino to score anytime is 7/4 (worst priced at EVS)
Chelsea to continue winning run against Palace?
Chelsea have beaten Palace in the last 10 games against them in all competitions going back to 2017. They also beat the Eagles three times without conceding in either of those three games last season.
Chelsea to win to nil is best priced at 21/10 (worst priced at 7/4).
FavFour for action in the Premier League
Premier League football is back, and we have our regular FavFour for the games at 3pm. Our FavFour is best priced at 18/1 (worst priced at 13/1). Will you be backing our FavFour?
And yet more stats for Saturday lunchtime's NLD...
- Tottenham have only won two of their last 37 away league matches at Arsenal
- Arsenal have scored in 23 straight home games vs Tottenham, a run stretching back to 1998
- Yet, Arsenal have conceded in each of their last eight home league matches since a 2-0 win over Leicester in March (Both Teams to Score is a best price 33/50)
- Only one of Arsenal's 17 PL goals this season has been scored right-footed
- Mikel Arteta is unbeaten in all seven of his North London derbies at the Emirates as player and manager (W5, D2)
- Gabriel Jesus is unbeaten in all 50 Premier League matches he has scored (W47). The Brazilian is best price 5/1 to open the scoring (7/2 worst)

City to continue Etihad scoring spree?
Manchester City have scored at least three goals in their last seven Premier League home games, dating back to their 2-2 draw at home to Liverpool in April this year. They are a best price 6/5 to keep that run going in Sunday's derby with over 2.5 home goals (worst price Evens).
Back in-form Son to pose problems for Ben White
A right-hand-sided defender has been booked in two of Spurs’ three away league matches. Ben White, a centre-back by preference, looks set to start at right back once again in the North London Derby and is a best 4/1 price (worst 13/5) to see a card.
Goals the trend in the West vs South London derby
Chelsea have won 10 in a row vs Crystal Palace with their last loss to them coming in 2017 when the Eagles did the double over them. In six of those 10 fixtures there has been over 2.5 goals, with four of those having over 3.5.
Graham Potter has had the international break to drill his philosophy into his new team and we expect them to come out of the traps on their visit to south London. With 10 wins on the bounce vs the Eagles you would expect Chelsea to come into this game with confidence.
Will Callum Wilson take his opportunity to impress?
After picking up a hamstring injury during Newcastle's empathic 3-3 draw against Manchester City, Callum Wilson has the opportunity to impress boss Eddie Howe.
Newcastle centre forward options are depleted with injuries to summer signing Alexander Isak, who picked up an injury during the international break and Chris Wood suffering from a rib injury. This is the perfect opportunity for Wilson to pick up where he left off having scored two Premier League goals already this season in three appearances.
Richarlison to play a key role if Kulusevski misses out
With rumours that winger Dejan Kulusevski could miss the North London Derby, the attention turns to Brazilian forward Richarlison, who needs no firing up for any game let alone a derby fixture.
BTTS in seven of the last eight games at the Emirates
At the Emirates, the North London Derby has seen both Arsenal and Tottenham score in seven of the last eight league games.
The last four fixtures have also seen over 2.5 goals in the match between the two sides.
BTTS and Over 2.5 goals is best priced at 21/20 (worst priced at 10/11)
Bukayo Saka to find the net in the North London Derby
The young Englishman looked red hot during his cameo at Wembley on Monday but his league form has been rising over the past few weeks too with five goal involvements in his last four.
He netted in this fixture last season, and you can expect he’ll be amongst the action in front of the Spurs goal this time around, 3/1 best price to score anytime.
Odegaard to take one for the team in the North London Derby
The North London derby is a fixture that Martin Odegaard relishes; he's scored in the past but getting stuck in seems to be a clear trend, having received a yellow in both fixtures last season.
Presuming Spurs deploy a similar gameplan to Man Utd and concede possession to hit the Gunners on the break, the captain should have no problem taking one for the team and nullifying Kane, Son and Kulusevski's trademark counter attack. The Norwegian opened his account for this season against Villa in a similar fashion a few weeks back and can be found at the 11/2 best price.
A Goal to be Scored in the North London Derby boosted to Evens
You have to go back to 2009 to find the last time that a match between these two North London rivals ended in a goalless draw.
Both sides have made strong starts to this campaign and William Hill have boosted odds for a goal to be scored in the match from 1/33 to Evens.
Fiery affair expected between Portugal and Spain
Despite the lack of goals in this fixture, Portugal vs Spain has seen 24 yellows served in its last six meetings. There are some significant price differentials with some top players.
Check out the tweet below.

Tuesday's 8/1 Nations League Treble featuring Scotland
The oddschecker team have picked out an 8/1 Tuesday treble ahead of the final group matches in the Nations League, featuring tips for Scotland's trip to Ukraine and the Iberian derby between Portugal and Spain in Braga.
Portugal to win cagey Iberian derby?
Portugal haven't lost at home to Spain since 2003. In the nine games since this fixture has only seen over 2.5 goals on two occasions (4-0 Portugal friendly win in 2010 & 3-3 at the 2018 World Cup).
A Portugal win would see them win their Nations League group tonight. It is 4/1 for them to get the three points and there be under 2.5 goals to be scored in the match.
McGinn to continue Nations League goalscoring form?
John McGinn tops the charts for Scotland in the Nations League, averaging 3.8. The Aston Villa captain has scored and assisted a total of four goals (two of each). He is a best price 9/2 (worst 3/1) to score anytime in Ukraine tonight.
Haaland and Mitrovic square off in the Nations League
Erling Haaland and Aleksandar Mitrovic have been the form players in the Premier League, sitting 1st and 3rd respectively in the race for the Golden Boot. They come up against each other tonight in the League B Group 4 decider to see who gets promoted into League A.
Haaland has scored three goals in his last two games for Norway, while Mitrovic scored a hat-trick against Sweden last time out in the Nations League.
If you think both are to score in their final Nations League game, you can find a best priced double at 26/5 with Sky Bet (the double is worse priced at 3/1 elsewhere).
Tonight's 11/2 treble covering the Nations League games
The oddschecker team picked out an 11/2 (now best priced at 6/1, worst priced 9/2) treble for tonight's action in the UEFA Nations League, which sees England wrap our their League A campaign against Germany.
England to reverse poor attacking form?
Sky bet are offering a significant price boost from 3/1 to 6/1 for both teams to have two or more shots on target in each half for England’s Nations League fixture vs Germany tonight.
Gareth Southgate’s side were relegated on Friday night as they failed to score once again in the San Siro and they now host Hansi Flick’s Germany in their last game before the World Cup. The Germans have also had a poor Nations League campaign and have only survived due to England’s form.
England have had 62 attempts over the duration of the Nations League, with 20 on target. Germany, meanwhile, have had 56 attempts with 22 finding the target.
