5 Team Parlay - $20 stake would return $3163
Over 2.5 goals @ +104
- Both Watford and Newcastle have seen their previous 3 games in the Premier League reach 3+ goals.
Watford have been shipping goals for fun, conceding at least one goal in every game since the restart, including against Championship-bound Norwich in their last game.
Newcastle despite some impressive performances post-lockdown have also conceded in 5 of their 6 games in all competitions. Whilst both teams will be hunting for three points there is every chance that this could be a goal-fest.
West Ham to win @ +102
- West Ham have only lost once to Norwich in their previous 13 games across all competitions
Put simply, this is a must-win for David Moyes and West Ham. Norwich can still mathematically survive by winning every game and relying upon other results, but the reality is that they're relegated and the playing staff and coaches know that. It isn't the case for West Ham though, who sit three points ahead of Bournemouth who currently occupy the final relegation spot.
West Ham have shown that they know where the goal is, scoring 5 times in their previous 3 games and must be expected to outscore Norwich who have only managed 1 goal in 5 Premier League games since the restart, against fellow strugglers Watford.
Halftime result - Draw @ +188
- Burnley are undefeated in 11 of their last 12 in the Premier League
- There have been under 2.5 goals in 6 of Burnley's previous 7 games
Burnley feel like they've slipped under the radar this season but they sit in tenth and after a poor start to the campaign have really improved and reverted to the same hard to beat Burnley who won so many plaudits when they arrived in the Premier League.
There's not been much value in Liverpool games recently with the champions -400 to secure a win. With Burnley's great record recently, I don't think that this will be a walkover by any stretch and could see Burnley having kept it leveluntil halftime, even if a draw at fulltime (+550) eludes them. Under 2.5 goals at +166 also looks like a very shrewd price.
Christian Pulisic to score anytime @ +210
- Christian Pulisic has scored in 3 of Chelsea's 5 Premier League games since the restart
The last time I previewed a Chelsea game I mentioned the liklihood of Pulisic scoring but didn't actually make the pick. That won't happen again. The young American is Chelsea's most influential player currently and looks like an ascending star.
It's tough to make a call for this game, with Sheffield United such a difficult team to preview, so the safest bet to me is to back Pulisic, who at over 2/1, for a player who has scored in more than 50% of EPL games since the restart, looks like value.
Draw/Man City (HT/FT) @ +330
- Man City have been losing at halftime in their past 3 Premier League away games
- There has been under 2.5 goals in 5 of City's last 6 away games in the league
As impressed as I have been with Brighton at times this season, I won't be suggesting that they are winning at halfitme like Man City's opposition have in their last 3 Premier League games on the road. However, that is indicative of a slow start to away games, something that could see Brighton keep last season's champions at bay until the second half. Something further backed up by the low amount of goals seen in City's recent away games.
