Premier League Week 8 Goalscorers
Players Who Will Score In EPL
By Paul Seaton
Saturday October 15th
Chelsea (-170) vs. Leicester City (+425)
Diego Costa has led the line superbly for the Blues this season, and although Chelsea don't look too certain defensively at the moment, the Spaniard has the 'goal-den' touch up top. He's +300 to score first, but a more reliable -120 to score at any time in the 90 minutes.
Add in the fact that Leicester's defense seems to have lost its ability since the second half of last season to clear their lines and there is every chance Costa bags two goals (+320). For the champions, Riyad Mahrez could embarrass Luiz and score anytime in the game (+260), especially as he takes penalties.
Manchester City (-205) vs. Everton (+500)
Table-topping City welcome Everton to the Etihad Stadium this weekend.
The Toffees will be hard-pressed to take three points from City, espeically after the Manchester club lost their first match of the season away to Spurs. City will win this game in a tight defensive encounter.
Back Ashley Williams (below, scoring for Wales last summer) to get amongst the goals at +1400 any time, or if you're feeling super-confident, +5000 to net first. It's worth a few dollars. City will win the match 3-1 so make your bets accordingly.
Pick: Man City To Win 3-1
Arsenal (-375) vs. Swansea (+900) 10am ET
Bob Bradley's first game as Swansea boss couldn't pose a stiffer challenge. The Gunners will probably win the game, but look for Swansea to be organised, tough to break down. They'll keep it competitve, but fall short in the end. Look for the Gunners to win this game 2-1 with former Tottenham midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson notching a goal. He is +1200 to score first or +300 to score at any time.
West Bromwich Albion (+400) vs. Tottenham Hotspur (-145) 10am ET
In-form Salomon Rondon is playing the best soccer of his career and is a great value +750 to score first for the hosts.
Stoke City (+105) vs. Sunderland (+270) 10am ET
Bojan looks the likeliest from a long list of Stoke players to get in on the goalscoring act at +220.
Bournemouth (-125) vs. Hull City (+360) 10am ET
With players such as Jack Wilshere and Harry Arter delivering great free kicks, defenders such as Steve Cook, who got vital goals for The Cherries last year, look like great value. Cook is +2500 to score first and we wouldn't put you off the +950 for a goal at any time.
Crystal Palace (+115) vs. West Ham United (+235) 12.30pm ET
Benteke is incredible value to score first +400 given The Hammers' woeful recent defensive record. Don't miss out.
Sunday October 16th
Middlesborough (+120) vs. Watford (+240) 8.30am ET
Alvaro Negredo's new lease on life since joining Boro' is palpable, and while the Hornets have a sting at home, they're inept at home. The Spaniard is +500 to score first, a bet we'll be taking.
Southampton (-275) vs. Burnley (+800) 11am ET
James Ward-Prowse is an often-ignored cog in The Saints early-season machine. Barring a couple of early defeats, Claude Puel's side have looked quite good, and Ward-Prowse's dead-ball prowess makes him a good bet at any time (+300) to score.
Monday October 17th
Liverpool (+105) vs. Manchester United (+255) 3pm ET
Anfield hosts Man Utd in a big match to round off the weekend. Liverpool edge the betting in terms of a straight bet but when it comes to goalscorers, it is wide open. However, after being the difference in the Europa League last year, Coutinho at any time (+200) to score is our bet.
