Under 2.5 Goals Acca
9 of the last 10 Premier League games this week have produced 2 goals or fewer. Sorry to say, Sunday points to more of the same.
Some big games are coming up in the Premier League on Sunday, but the goal glut of early season is a distant memory. Back under 2.5 goals in all four matches at 11.78/1 with BetVictor:
West Brom v Newcastle:
We should be on solid ground at midday with a fixture to slow down the pulse! It is an important one in the relegation battle, but these teams are under threat largely because of a lack of firepower. There haven’t been more than 2 goals in any of West Brom’s last five outings, while Newcastle travel without Wilson, Almiron and Saint-Maximin - scorers of 59% of a team goal tally that still isn’t great.
Liverpool v Fulham:
What more can you say about this Liverpool home form?! The key thing in terms of this bet is that the champions haven’t scored more than 1 goal in any of their last 7 at Anfield, and have rarely looked like doing so. Fulham are fighting for their lives and defending much better these days. Their last 7 matches have produced under 2.5 goals.
Man City v Man Utd:
I would hesitate before going low on goals in a Manchester City match, but their neighbours have become specialists in the dull showdowns against other highly regarded opponents this season. Indeed, their last 4 against the ‘big six’ have all ended 0-0, including the other league Manchester derby. A narrow home win for Pep’s boys seems most likely.
Tottenham v Crystal Palace:
To round off proceedings, it’s a London derby which Spurs have dominated in recent years, winning 1-0 more often than not. It finished 1-1 in the reverse fixture this season, but Palace are an infuriating mixture of defensive bravery and an attacking non-entity. If nothing else, that’s perfect for our purposes; the Eagles’ last two ended 0-0 but a low scoring home win is on the cards here.
