Back These Players To Score

Saturday 24th September

Manchester United (-155) vs. Leicester City (+400)

The first game of the weekend could well be the best. United go into the game having felt the sting of defeat three times in a fortnight of misery. Leicester have hardly set the Premier League alight this season in the way they did last year, but beat Burnley 3-0 last week, and in Islam Slimain, they suddenly have the perfect foil for Jamie Vardy. Quick, powerful and devastating in front of goal, the Algerian links up brilliantly with his countryman Riya Mahrez and as you can see here, has everything: 

The danger posed by Slimani makes him great value at +800 to score first or +250 to score at any time. Ibrahimovich is also excellent value to score at any time. It's only +125, but the reliance on him from Mourinho and his less-experienced team-mates, coupled with the fact that he takes penalties, demands investment.

Swansea (+650) vs. Manchester City (-265) 10am ET 

The praise for Belgian midfield dynamo Kevin De Bruyne has been abundant these past few weeks and thoroughly deserved. 'KDB' has been instrumental in City's perfect start and with Swansea famed for rolling over against City in the past, this will be another easy victory for Guardiola's men. KDB is +125 to score at any time and that looks to be terrific value. 

Liverpool (-500) vs. Hull City (+1300) 10am ET

When considering defensive scorers, we always like to go deeper into a player's background than recent weeks. Take, for example, Liverpool's Joel Matip: 

Matip is a great pick for scorer and whether for first goal (+3300) or any time (+1000) he's our guy.

Bournemouth (+245) vs. Everton (+110) 10am ET 

With Kevin Mirallas rested for Everton's midweek debacle at home to Norwich, expect the Belgian to be back in the line-up. He is terrific value to score first at +800. 

Stoke City (+135) vs. West Bromwich Albion (+205) 10am ET

Wilfried Bony will be the man to fear and can net first to save Sparky at +550. 

Sunderland (+195) vs. Crystal Palace (+150) 10am ET

Christian Benteke to score first at +450 feels ominously likely for Mackems. 

Middlesborough (+290) vs. Tottenham Hotspur (-105) 10am ET

With Harry Kane out through injury, his summer back-up Vincent Janssen will step into his shoes to score at any time. He's +150 to do so and has some serious skills:

Arsenal (+130) vs. Chelsea (+200) 12.30pm ET 

If anyone is to take advantage of David Luiz's return to the Stamford Bridge outfit, then it might be Arsenal's main man at the back, Laurent Kocielny. The Frenchman is +2800 to score the opener, and +800 at any time if you want to hedge your bet.

Sunday 25th September

West Ham United (+180) vs. Southampton (+150) 11am ET 

West Ham seriously need something to go their way, and we feel this might be the game they catch a break. Mark Noble has long been the penalty taker for The Hammers, and he can kick-start their season by opening the scoring at +1400. 

Monday 26th September 

Burnley (+185) vs. Watford (+155) 3pm ET 

Jóhann Berg Guδmundsson is a terrific bet to score at any time. The former Charlton man had 16 goals in 81 appearances for The Latics and famously once scored a hat-trick for Iceland in a 4-4 tie against Switzerland. He is an outstanding +1200 to grab a goal and open his account for Burnley.

The Oscars: Nomadland The Pick Of The Flicks

Making Oscars 2021 picks isn't like wagering on a sporting event. While certainly there is the so-called Oscar buzz that's generated around certain films, the decision on which movie, director or actor gains the Academy Award is solely based on a secret ballot held by the members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. There are no past performances to assess, so going with an underdog isn't necessarily a bad strategy.
