30th Sep 2017 | Premier League
We've picked out which matches will be 'goalsy' and which ones won't in the top flight on Saturday afternoon.
You have to dig around for value in the Premier League today and attacking the ‘Both Teams to score’ market seems as good a place as any. Back our treble at a best price of 5.35/1 with BetFair.
Bournemouth v Leicester: BTTS - YES (4/6)
Despite the lowly positions of these sides, they both tend to look good for a goal. Leicester should have a lot more than 4 points having found the net 9 times but conceding 12 goals will do that to you! The Cherries will typically score at home this season but only 2 clean sheets in their last 14 at the Vitality Stadium tells a story.
Stoke v Southampton: BTTS - NO (Evens)
I’m surprised we’re seeing evens money for at least one side failing to net here. This is Southampton. Both teams have scored in just 1 of their 6 league games so far this season. In fact if you take out their 3-2 victory over West Ham - a real outlier involving a first half red card - the Saints’ other 5 games have produced just 4 goals in total. Stoke are an unremarkable side at both ends which only helps our cause here.
West Ham v Swansea: BTTS - NO (9/10)
Swansea are becoming fascinating as a side who can only produce results on the road. All 5 of their points have come away and you can throw in 2 traveling successes in the EFL Cup to boot! For this bet the key is that their 3 top flight away games have ended 0-0, 0-2 & 0-0 again. At least 1 team has failed to score in 4 of 6 West Ham league games as well.
