Can Liverpool continue their remarkable winning streak as they travel to Sheffield United? Will anything separate the Cherries and the Hammers? Will Chelsea’s high scoring run of games continue against Brighton?
Here are the best bets for Round 7 of the 2019/20 English Premier League.
Sheffield United vs. Liverpool – 9/28/19
Sheffield United host Liverpool in the early kick-off on Saturday. The Reds are the only team with a 100% record in the league this season, after winning all six of their games. On the other hand, the Blades have made a decent start to life back in the Premier League, and come into this match on the back of an impressive 2-0 win at Everton. Sheff Utd boast a solid defensive record, with just Liverpool and Leicester conceding less goals so far. I expect Liverpool to win this one comfortably but the Blades will certainly put up a good fight. A Liverpool win is at 1.3, but I don’t think this match will be a high scoring affair, so adding Under 3.5 Goals into the mix makes the odds far more profitable.
Pick: Liverpool to Win and Under 3.5 Match Goals – 2.01
Bournemouth vs. West Ham United - 9/28/19
Bournemouth and West Ham have both made promising starts this term. After losing on the opening day of the season, the Hammers are now unbeaten in 5 matches (winning 3 and drawing 2) and beat Manchester United in the previous round. Bournemouth have also picked up 3 wins in their last 5 matches. West Ham are 5th in the table while the Cherries sit 6th, so there really isn’t much between the two teams right now. For that reason, a draw could be on the cards, and at 3.5, this price looks too good to miss.
Pick: The Draw – 3.5
Chelsea vs. Brighton & Hove Albion - 9/28/19
Only Manchester City have been involved in more goals this season than Chelsea. The Blues have scored 12 while conceding 13, and while they’ve had no problem finding the back of the net, their defense has looked shaky. On the other hand, Brighton have conceded 8 and scored just 5, and after winning on the opening day, the Seagulls are now without a win in 5 league games. I expect Chelsea to win this one and I wouldn’t be surprised if their high scoring record continues. Tammy Abraham already has 7 goals in 6 EPL appearances, and he could well be the man to fire Chelsea to victory on Saturday.
Pick: Chelsea to Win and Over 3.5 Match Goals – 3.31
