Overall record: 2-2 (-0.2 units)
Last week 2-2
Recap: Last week’s matches played out exactly as we had anticipated. Tottenham came out firing with 6 goals in a high scoring victory over Leicester City. Son had a hat trick in the cause. Everton and West Ham were in a slow paced game that saw 21 total shots, but only 6 on goal and only 1 found the net. Just the way we drew it up. Both games were nice victories, but where we went wrong were the corner bets. Both bets were wrong on the amount of corners, so we will look to stay away from those going forward.
Liverpool will be excited to get back on the pitch. Their last match was all the way back on 9/13 in a 2-1 win over Ajax. Liverpool is currently 2nd in shots in the Premier League while they are only 4th in goals. I expected them to start finding the net more as they continue to rack up the amount of shots. Brighton will be a bit of a challenge for Liverpool as they are 1st in the Premier League in goals against at 5. That number comes against weaker competition as they have not faced many quality teams in the top of the table. I expect Liverpool to play with passion and urgency in Anfield and get the 3 points against Brighton.

Do not laugh here, but I am going chalk again and taking the favorite. When you see an opportunity to make money, who cares if it is a sexy pick or not. Do not question it and just take the money and run. Despite the rivalry, there is a huge difference in talent amongst the teams. Man City is 1st in the Premier League in goals with 23 versus a Man U squad that is 10th with only 8 goals. I see Haaland running wild here and getting at least 1 goal if not more. The over/under in this game is 3.5 and that is not because of Man U’s ability to score. Man City will be pressing the ball downfield and the ball will live on the Man U’s third of the field.
