Premier League Parlay: Tail Our Expert's +210 Parlay and Prop Bet
The weekend is almost here, and the domestic leagues are back after a strange and long international break packed with drama, injuries, suspensions, players back to their clubs with just a few hours before domestic kick-off—no time to rest. So let's prepare for the Premier League action with a tasty "overs" parlay. That's right. We expect goals!
Southampton vs. West Ham
Despite the 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace, David Moyes' side has all the reasons to celebrate. They are unbeaten so far this season (2 wins and 1 draw), they have the joint best attack in the league with 10 goals scored in three fixtures, and their striker Michail Antonio is leading the top scorer's chart with 4 goals netted in three games.
However, the 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace felt like two points dropped against a team who failed to find the back of the net in the 1st two matches. There is a problem at the back, but the international break was the perfect opportunity for David Moyes to add reinforcements. The new boys, French international Kurt Zouma and Croatian international Nikola Vlasic, both signed on deadline day.
With fantastic Premier League experience, Zouma will provide competition for Craig Dawson and Angelo Ogbonna and will probably lead the defensive line. He's a strong, athletic, and powerful player, and he's expected to solve West Ham's defensive issues. The pair enjoyed their 1st training session with West Ham on Thursday, with Zouma expected to start against Southampton.
On the other side, Southampton is winless this season, earning just 2 points from their two draw games against Newcastle and Man United. But the good thing about Ralph Hasenhuttl is that they scored in every match.
The Hammers have an excellent record over Southampton, having won six of their last seven Premier League head-to-heads. West Ham is probably the most inspired and in-form team in the league this season, and it's tough to stop their goalscoring machine, Michail Antonio. The hosts will likely fall just short again, but we expect them to contribute on the scoreboard. So, we expect goals, a 3-1 West Ham win, so for our 1st pick of the parlay, we are going for over 2.5 goals.

Chelsea vs. Aston Villa
Chelsea's rock-solid defense and superb attacking firepower make them serious contenders for the Premier League title. They kept two clean sheets against Arsenal and Crystal Palace, conceding just 1 goal this season from a penalty kick against Liverpool. They played the entire 2nd half with one man down with Reece James being sent off for a handball on the goal line, but they managed to keep Liverpool to a 1-1 draw after a brilliant defensive display.
This international break came too soon for all clubs, and Chelsea is one of the teams who will suffer. After a great start to their season picking up winning momentum, they are now carrying some injury concerns, with a few of their players not returning to full training sessions.
The Blue are sweating on midfield with N'Golo Kante and Christian Pulisic struggling with ankle injuries while Romelu Lukaku is battling a nagging thigh injury. In addition, Reece James and Thiago Silva will be unavailable for the match with Aston Villa, with James being suspended after the red card against Liverpool. At the same time, FIFA bans Thiago Silva after Chelsea refused to release him for international duty.
On Friday morning, Romelu Lukaku fully trained with the squad despite the minor injury we mentioned, so he is most likely to start against Villa.
Aston Villa has had a mixed start to their season. With one loss, one win, and one defeat, the visitors sit 11th in the standings with 4 points. However, they scored in every game, with Danny Ings, Buendia, and Leon Bailey improving game by game and becoming a great trio.
Unfortunately, Buendia and Emiliano Martinez will be absent due to quarantine rules, while Jacob Ramsey and Morgan Sanson are doubtful. Nevertheless, Aston Villa remains a serious threat going forward as they have great weapons to find the back of the net against Chelsea. We also have a prop play for you but tread carefully.
