Goals On Sunday
If you like your football to be of more a domestic persuasion, then we have four of very best goal bets to whet your appetite.
Right On Tyne
The first of our four clashes takes us to St James’ Park, as Newcastle play host to Arsenal. The Magpies are edging towards a top-four finish at the end of the season. The Gunners are edging closer to finishing second behind Manchester City.
Although the reverse fixture between these two sides ended in a goalless draw, it is not January’s stalemate where I am taking my inspiration from. Instead, I am looking back to the 3-0 home win for Newcastle at the tail end of last season.
Eddie Howe’s men have been one of the hottest teams in front of goal in recent weeks and you only need to ask Arsenal’s North London rivals as evidence of that. They hit Spurs for six, but I think four or more total is the biting point here and I am backing this at odds of 6/4.
A Punishing Schedule
Next up we go to the London Stadium as two United’s square off in the Premier League. West Ham play host to Manchester and after the latter suffered defeat at the hands of Brighton on Thursday, their top-four status is looking slightly less secure.
The bookmakers still believe that Erik ten Hag’s men will get over the line, but it is more likely that they will limp over it instead. While you could also say that the Red Devils’ attack has been limping through the past couple of months.
After Thursday’s 1-0 loss, it is now seven out of eight league games where the Old Trafford outfit have recorded under 2.5 total goals and with such a healthy sample on show, there is no reason to go against the grain. This means, I am backing three or less in the capital at odds of 11/10.
The Champions Elect
Now we are off to the Scottish Premiership, as Hearts play host to Celtic. The Jam Tarts were set to be Scotland’s third force this season or at least go some way to trying to bridge the gap between themselves and the Glasgow duopoly. However, a wretched run of results has almost seen to that.
They are now playing catch up in the race for third and with champions elect Celtic visiting on Sunday, it may only serve to provide extra impetus for Aberdeen who are currently five points clear of Hearts and set to a bonanza of European riches.
Although it is not points which are the focus, Celtic will be looking for three more and considering they are averaging more than three goals per game in the Scottish Premiership, backing over 2.5 in total at Tynecastle at odds of 4/9 seems a logical conclusion to make.
New Manager Bounce
While my final pick keeps me north of the border, as I pivot from Tynecastle to Ibrox. Rangers play host to Aberdeen on Sunday and with Michael Beale’s men constantly being wounded by Celtic, there is arguably value in backing the Dons to earn an upset.
Especially now that Barry Robson’s managerial status has been upgraded from interim to permanent manager and now that the Pittodrie hotseat is now a little cooler, he will be hoping that his players do not decrease from their current playing temperature.
Aberdeen have come from nowhere to surpass Hearts and since going third in the table, they have also managed to get the better of Rangers themselves. The match outcome may be up in the air, the number of goals is not in my opinion. Therefore, over 2.5 at odds of 8/15 is also being added.
While if you put all four combinations together, Bet365 are prepared to offer you 10.62/1 in return.
