The Chiefs go into the AFC Championship Game as 7.5-point favorites over the Tennessee Titans. Meanwhile, the San Francisco 49ers are seven-point favorites over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game.
Best Goalscorer Premier League Prop Bets
The Most Likely Premier League Goalscorers This Week
By Paul Seaton
Saturday 10th December
Watford (+205) vs. Everton (+135) 7.30am
Watford definitely have players to hurt Everton and one of the likeliest is an unfamiliar name to many. While Everton screen their back four to protect against runs from the likes of Etienne Capoue, they are prey to teams' wingers or defenders cutting in to cause damage. Take Watford's Daryl Janmaat to score at any time at +700.
Arsenal (-300) vs. Stoke City (+750) 10am ET
The Gunners look in decent form at home and in Europe, don't they? It's almost as if they're shoe-ins to win the Premier League and Champions League in a glorious double...sorry about that. We were fast asleep. Arsenal haven't won the title for 13 years and have never lifted Europe's most-prized silverware. They haven't since signing Alexis Sanchez either, which is shocking considering how amazing he is:
Stoke at home is exactly the sort of fixture that causes Arsenal huge problems and we'll take Xherdan Shaqiri to show off in another big game to remind us all how mercurial he is. The little Swiss is +375 to score at any time.
Swansea City (+110) vs. Sunderland (+240) 10am ET
This looks like the least likely goal-fest so far this season. Two scaredy-cat defenses, but only one striker who can make the home side pay. Take Jermain Defoe to score first at +450. If Sunderland didn't have him, they'd officially be relegated by now.
Hull City (+205) vs. Crystal Palace (+135) 10am ET
With Hull suffering at home and away, take Christian Benteke to score at any time at +130. The big Belgian is great value and will go on a run now he's scoring again.
Burnley (+235) vs. Bournemouth (+120) 10am ET
A tough call to see where goals are coming from for the home side at Turf Moor at the moment. Bournemouth, meanwhile scored foru at home last week against Liverpool. Just one this week might do it, and we like Callum Wilson to continue his rich vein of form at any time (+170) or a riskier +2200 to score the only goal of the game in a 1-0 away win for The Cherries.
Leicester City (+350) vs. Manchester City (-135) 12.30pm ET
The soon-to-be-desposed Champions were top at Christmas last year, but could be in the bottom three come the yuletide season unless they're careful. Another tricky fixture should see their opponents rattle in some goals, with Nolito a great nod at +1500 to score between the 21st - 45th minute.
Sunday 11th December
Chelsea (-375) vs. West Bromwich Albion (+1000) 7am ET
This won't be as easy as it might look on paper for the current league leaders. We like an oddity in similar situations as this, and Marcos Alonso at +1600 to score the opener looks gloriously overpriced.
Manchester United (+110) vs. Tottenham Hotspur (+245) 9.15am
A game that should be wide open will surely see plenty of goals. Just as he has done twice in November, Juan Mata will score again. The Spaniard is +240 to score at any time.
Southampton (-160) vs. Middlesborough (+450) 9.15am ET
Alvaro Negredo got the opener against Hull last week and we rate the chances of him doing so again as far better than the +700 odds on offer.
Liverpool (-315) vs. West Ham United (+750) 11.30am ET
For a dangerous defender against a poor defense, Dejan Lovren is a long price at +750 to score at any time. He virtually pays for your weekend if you invest.
