Premier League Parlay: Expecting Some Attacking Firepower
Premier League Round 7 Betting Picks: 2-Team Parlay (+261)
One of the best-attacking teams in the league, West Ham, hosts the newly promoted and impressive Brentford, while Wolves, who finally started to find the back of the net, will face a team with zero wins this season Newcastle.
Parlay 1st Pick: West Ham vs. Brentford - Sunday, October 3 - 9:00 AM ET
After six rounds, West Ham is sitting 7th in the standings with 11 points, just 3 points behind leaders Liverpool. They bounced back after three winless games, beating Leeds 2-1 on the road but not without suffering till the last minute of the game. It was an end-to-end game with both teams creating many scoring chances (35 goal attempts and 12 shots on target between them).
To be honest, despite being the better team in that game, West Ham was also fortunate not to concede before netting the winning goal. The Jamaican international Michail Antonio came back from suspension, scoring the '3 points' goal in the 90th minute of the game. He is the joint leader in the top scorers' chart with 5 goals in 6 games, but he also offered 3 assists in the process. Basically, he participated in 8 of West Ham's 13 goals. Many Premier League strikers are dreaming of having Antonio's numbers.
On the other side, Brentford is the new Leeds. Marcelo Bielsa's side finished 9th last season, is by far the most exciting team to watch (62 goals in 38 games for a newly promoted team). This season, Brentford is the team to watch, an attack-minded side that successfully combines the high-pressing style with a great composure while in possession.
They only lost one in six games this season. They scored three against Liverpool last weekend, and they beat Arsenal and Wolves keeping two clean sheets in the process. They totally deserved 1 point in the 3-3 thriller against Liverpool, probably the best game of the season in the Premier League. A great game plan, well-coached, exceptional balance in midfield. They have all the necessary weapons to stay in the top-flight league for at least one more season. This is what soccer is all about. There are no stars on the team. All the players enjoy their moments on the pitch, have a great attitude, and fight till the last whistle no matter the score.
We expect them to find the back of the net once again against a struggling West Ham defense. Probably, in the end, they will return home pointless, but they will definitely offer us a great match.
1st Parlay Pick: Over 2.5 Goals (-111)
Parlay 2nd Pick: Wolves vs. Newcastle - Saturday, October 2 - 10:00 AM ET
After a poor start to their Premier League season with three consecutive defeats and no goals scored, the Wolves returned to winning ways and enter this clash on the back of two wins in their last three fixtures. However, they still have a lot to improve.
Raul Jimenez got off the mark for the new season, scoring the game's only goal last weekend against Southampton. The former Benfica star is crucial for the team, and he's working hard in training to arrive at the pre-injury form.
Wolves' counterattacks are deadly, with Adama Traore having a great pace and unmatchable dribbling skills. His ability to roll past his opponents is fantastic, but he lacks consistency. Offensively, the hosts boast have one of the highest expected goals (xG) from open play.
On the other side, surprisingly, Newcastle is winless in six games. They are scoring goals, but they are dreadful at the back. They also have a poor recent record against Wolves, having won only one of their last nine league encounters.
Newcastle possesses an excellent attacking quality with Saint-Maximin, a player who can solve a game independently, with Almiron and Joelinton. Wolves enter this game with the 1st chance to win, and Newcastle should find the back of the net, so we are going with 'both teams to score. We've seen both teams to score in the last 5 EPL mutual encounters between these two teams and 1-1 score in the previous four head-to-heads.
