This weekend we have a slate full of great soccer games. The most important of which is Liverpool vs. Man United, as both sides battle for the top spot in the Premier League. Below are our best picks for the weekend's games, including that huge game.

Saturday Premier League Picks
1u – Under 2.5 Goals @ -152
- There have been Under 2.5 Goals in 6 of West Brom's last 7 away games in the league
These two teams are often in low scoring goals. Wolves have only scored 19 goals in 18 games, and West Brom just 11 in 17 games. Wolves are known to be tight at the back, and they welcome West Brom to town, with new manager Sam Allardyce well known for his love of strong defense. 'Big Sam' will be looking to not concede in this game and try to nick a goal, and he'll set up his team to do just that. It's going to be a low-scoring, probably boring, game, but I'm confident that we'll see under 2.5 goals scored.
1u – Over 2.5 Goals @ -162
- There have been Over 2.5 Goals in 6 of Leeds last 7 EPL games
We know what Leeds are by now. They're A Marco Bielsa team who stick to his principles. They're thrilling to watch, and dangerous going forward, but crucially, they're also naive at the back and his approach to soccer is one which allows his opposition the opportunity to score. Brighton are a better team than their league position probably shows and I think Graham Potter will have an idea on how to attack Leeds here. I'm expecting 3 or 4 goals in this game and the Over 2.5 market looks like a solid bet.
Sunday Premier League picks
1u - Tottenham -1 @ +185
- Spurs have only lost 1 of their past 11 road games
Sheffield United may have just picked up their first win of the season but don't get fooled. This team is struggling and they're a far cry from the team we saw at the beginning of last season. Spurs meanwhile haven't looked quite as sharp recently but Jose Mourinho will see this as an opportunity to bounce back and with Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min in the starting XI I think we'll see a confident and high scoring Spurs win.
1u – Both Teams To Score In The Second Half @ +190
- Man Utd have won 11 of their last 12 road games
It's the game of the weekend and arguably the first truly huge fixture of the season. I'm excited to watch this game and I'm very confident we'll see goals. None of Liverpool's much vaunted front three have scored in their past two Premier League games and it's hard to see them blanking for a third game. Meanwhile Man Utd's attack is pure pace and they'll be facing Jurgen Klopp's backline which will likely be made up of two central midfielers, out of position.
I can't call a winner for this game, although I do lean slightly toward it being Liverpool. What I am confident on is that we'll see goals, and the second half in particular seems like a solid bet, with both teams tiring and more likely to conceed.
