Home Banker Double
Henderson scored a glorious winner against AC Milan in midweek, but there might be a slight comedown as the big guns return to more mundane matters.
There are two perceived home bankers in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, and we can make some money even by backing the heavy favourites. Man City and Liverpool to both win with under 3.5 goals in their respective matches is a best price 3.84/1 with Boylesports.
We won’t waste time talking up why the teams who have claimed the title between them in each of the last four seasons should triumph. Instead, we’ll make a case for the underdogs avoiding thrashings.
Southampton look in for a tough season but Hassenhuttl found something at the back last weekend when West Ham were held 0-0. Having also only conceded once to Man Utd, there are reasons for mild optimism.
As for Crystal Palace, they arrive off the back of a 3-0 victory over Tottenham. Viera’s boys have so far improved in every fixture, with Anderson and Guehi building a partnership in the heart of defence.
Expect tough afternoons for both visiting teams, obviously, but home wins in the range of 1-0, 2-0, 3-0 or 2-1 look like reasonable prospects that would win us our wager.
