25/1 for more Scorer shenanigans...

On Tuesday I said that recent meetings between the Premier League’s top clubs have had a habit of producing unlikely scorers

That pattern of big-price Scorer results continued in midweek, with Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum and Chelsea defender David Luiz getting the goals in a 1-1 draw an Anfield.

There were no 10/1 or 40/1 payouts from my ‘long-shot’ selections Adam Lallana (midfielder) or Gary Cahill (defender) this time, but Wijnaldum and Luz would’ve been trading at similar prices – and they kept up that not-the-obvious Scorers trend.

That Big Match followed on from our successful 16/1 First Scorer pick James Milner (Man Utd 1 Liverpool 1), and 3/1 Anytime Scorer selection Dele Alli (Man City 2 Tottenham 2)...

This weekend’s blockbuster top-flight fixture is Chelsea v Arsenal, 12.30pm Saturday on Sky Sports...

David Luiz is 10/1 in the Anytime Scorer betting this time, and 25/1 to be First Scorer for the second game running. His teammate and defensive partner Gary Cahill is available at the same best prices – available with Betway.

A 12-game winning streak...

Heading down the divisions to League Two, we find one of the most reliable bets and one of the longest ‘winning streaks’ of the season to date...

  • Carlisle are on a 12-game run for Both Teams to Score payouts. That includes three consecutive 1-1 draws...

This weekend Carlisle travel to Leyton Orient (Sat 3pm). Orient are second-bottom of League Two and Carlisle are flying high in 3rd, but both sides have poor Clean Sheet records:

  • Orient have kept just 4 Clean Sheets in their 27 league games (15%), and Carlisle are not much better with 5 from 28 (18%)

It was 2-2 when these two met earlier in the season. On recent form Carlisle are the top team in the whole of the Premier League & Football League for Both Teams to Score...

That bet is 4/6 (1.67) in general this weekend, and a best price 7/10 (1.70) with Betfair Sportsbook.

MATCH PREDICTOR – Enter your predictions...

The midweek Predictor results were all about ‘The Fonz’...

FONZARELLI was the top scoring player in our Premier League Mini League, with an impressive 5 out of 10 Correct Scores.

And that points tally puts FONZARELLI top of our overall Predictor Mini League table, too – overtaking last season’s winner, CHRISSIE13.

Let’s see who comes out top this week...

  • We’re offering a £100 prize to our Mini League winner at the end of the season

I’ll be sharing loads more stats like that Carlisle ‘Both Teams to Score’ winning streak above... giving you access to unique Top 10 Tables showing which teams are providing the most payouts in the Match Result and Goals markets...

And we’ll also continue to provide the popular weekly Premier League Predictions & Anytime and First Scorer advice – features that I know many of you look out for every Friday.
