Here are four of my favorite plays for Saturday and Sunday's games, bet them individually or as a parlay for a bumper return.

Saturday Premier League Picks
1u - Man City -1 @ +340
- The derby hasn't finished a draw in the 9 previous games
Derby games often fall outside of trends and league positions and with this game it's key to focus on where the teams are. United are in a hole after being eliminated from the Champions League and Manchester United have continued to be a laughing stock recently. City are a better side by nearly every statistic and I think they'll win this with ease, so I'll take the handicap.
Sunday Premier League Picks
1u - Southampton @ -139
- Sheffied United have lost their last 7 away league games
Sheffield United are a team I'm looking to take on each week and when they're facing Southampton and their manager Ralph Hasenhuttl, we're siding with the Saints. Southampton sit 5th in the Premier League and they've become an incredible unit this season, working as a team who are better than the sum of their parts. Fire power will be key here and Southampton, with 21 goals, have scored 16 more goals than the Blades, and that will tell.
1u - Liverpool -1 @ -105
- Fulham have conceded 21 goals in 11 games this season
Liverpool do have injuries, as their fans and manger have been at pains to point out reguarly. Even without some of their star players, especially in defense, there are some huge talents here and going forward they are lethal. Nobody in the Premier League has scored more and they'll put Fulham to the sword with their attacking trident.
1u - Leicester @ +107
- Leicester haven't lost to Brighton in their last 6 matches
Brighton sit in 16th but have been very good at times this year but Leicester, 4th in the Premier League, are miles ahead on and off the pitch. Leicester are over even money, as they have been a number of times this year, and that price has to be taken. They won't win the league but this season is bringing back memories of their triumphant league win, in that they're constantly undervalued by the books.
