Standout stats for the weekend...

Our Standout Stats feature is proving prolific this season.

Last weekend two of our three stats came good – Burnley keeping up their 100% Home record for Under 2.5 Goals (won 2-0), and Hull staying in 1st place in the Championship for Both Teams to Score (2-2 draw).

Here are three more teams currently riding high on our website...

This weekend’s Standout Stats are:

  • Preston have picked up more Yellow Cards (45) than any other team in the Championship, and 27 of them have come in Away games. They’ve landed Most Booking Points (or Most Cards) bets in 8 of their 9 Away games – the highest Away strike-rate in the division. This Saturday, Preston travel to Norwich, and the Canaries have only got the Most Booking Points/ Cards in one of their 9 Home games...
  • Coventry are the No.1 team in League Two for Under 2.5 Goals, and have an 89% Home record for that bet (8 games out of 9). This weekend they host Crawley, who are ranked 2nd in the division for Under 2.5 Goals – and have failed to score in each of their last 3 Away games...
  • Chesterfield may be rock bottom of the Football League, but they have the Top Scorer in League Two this season. Kristian Dennis has landed Anytime Scorer bets in 6 consecutive league games, and has given more payouts in that market (11) than any other player listed on our website this season – taking in the Premier League, Football League and Scottish Premiership combined. This weekend, Chesterfield travel to a 7th-place Mansfield side who have kept 3 Clean Sheets in a row. But if anyone can find the net against them on Saturday – Dennis has to be the chief contender... 

Under 2.5 Goals and Anytime Scorer bets are widely available with most bookmakers.

The Most Booking Points market for Norwich v Preston is available with William Hill, and Most Cards is offered by 888 Sport and Unibet.

Booking Points bets explained...

Yellow Card = 10 pts
Red Card = 25 pts
Max. for one player in a game = 35 pts (eg. 2 Yellows resulting in a Red)

Cards bets explained...

Yellow Card = 1 Card
Red Card = 2 Cards
Max. for one player in a game = 3 Cards (eg. 2 Yellows resulting in a Red)

Liverpool v Chelsea – top trend…

Last week our big game ‘top trend’ produced a winner with Arsenal winning the Most Corners v Tottenham, 7-4 – meaning the Home team has now won the Most Corners in each of the last 9 North London derbies. The Gunners have now landed that bet in 10 out of 10 games in all comps at the Emirates this season.

This weekend’s big TV game in the Premier League is Liverpool v Chelsea (Sat 5.30pm, BT Sport)...

Gone are the days of the Rafa Benitez v Jose Mourinho 0-0 Champions League slug-fests between these sides...

  • 11 of the last 12 Premier League meetings between Liverpool and Chelsea have paid out on Both Teams to Score

So far this season, Liverpool have scored in 8 out of 9 games in all comps at Anfield, and Chelsea have found the net in 8 out of 9 Away games including 6 out of 6 on the road in the Premier League.

Three of the last 5 meetings have finished 1-1, and I’ve gone for that score-line in my weekend Predictions (see below).

The 1-1 Correct Score is a general 6/1 (7.00) chance, and Both Teams to Score is odds-on at around 4/7 (1.57).

Enhanced Odds 10/1 or 16/1...

If you don’t like the look of the big game being a draw, then make sure you get the best price on one team to win...

888 Sport are offering Enhanced Odds (up to a £5 stake) for:

Liverpool to win @ 10/1 (11.00)


Chelsea to win @ 16/1 (17.00)

Those odds have been boosted from 23/20 (2.15) for Liverpool and 43/20 (3.15) for Chelsea...
