Lucrative Bets to Back This Weekend
Jonny Howson to Stun Manchester City
|Jonny Howson Goalscoring Odds vs. Manchester City|
|To Score First Goal and Norwich Lose 3-1||300-1|
|Odds via Skybet.|
If Manuel Pellegrini can take comfort from one thing, it’s that Manchester City’s next Premier League game is located at Fortress Etihad.
Despite the Sky Blues’ last-gasp defeat to Chelsea, the Chilean manager will be more than confident of overturning Chris Hughton’s struggling Norwich side.
But the Premier League is never as easy as that.
The Canaries can travel to Manchester with nothing to lose. They did so at the culmination of last season, and with a tremendous Jonny Howson goal, defeat the home side 3-2, per BBC Sport.
Howson has scored two goals for Norwich this campaign, as recorded by WhoScored, and is the type of tricky midfielder who can unlock City in this time of uncertainty. He is a scorer of great goals and favours shooting from distance, attributes that make him an extremely tasty bet to further compound Joe Hart’s misery.
Daniel Sturridge to Down Arsenal
|Daniel Sturridge Goalscoring Odds vs. Arsenal|
|Both Sturridge and Olivier Giroud to Score||13-2|
|To score and Liverpool win 1-0||45-1|
|Odds via Skybet.|
Luis Suarez's hat-trick may have overshadowed Sturridge against West Brom, but he can be the matchwinner in the game with Arsenal.
Sturridge is the current Premier League top goalscorer, per BBC Sport, so outlining him to net isn’t particularly inspiring. Throw in a specific result and the odds become rather juicy.
Liverpool’s run of 1-0 wins may have died down—Brendan Rodgers’ team began the season with three such results, all won by Sturridge—but expect the visitors to try to frustrate the Gunners on their own turf.
Should they manage to do that, Sturridge is more than capable of popping up with a moment of magic to break Arsenal hearts.
Goals Galore at the Emirates
|Arsenal vs. Liverpool: Match Result Odds|
|Arsenal 2-2 Liverpool||12-1|
|Arsenal 3-1 Liverpool||14-1|
|Liverpool to win 3-0, 3-1 or 3-2||17-2|
|Odds via Skybet.|
Now, Arsenal and Liverpool have scored 37 goals between them this season, per WhoScored, Aside from Manchester City, they are the two top scoring teams in the league.
Such a statistic suggests we can expect plenty of goals during the Emirates clash. Arsenal's football has been particularly slick at home, with Arsene Wenger's free-flowing, passing style coming to the fore.
The same can be said for Rodgers' Liverpool, who continue to advance under the former Swansea manager. His willingness to allow his players to express themselves, and an emphasis on getting numbers into the opposition's area, have produced a direct playing style that rips through defences.
Just two points separate both clubs at the top of the table. Liverpool have a real chance of travelling to North London and upsetting the Gunners in a week that has already seen them lose to Chelsea.
Should a rerun of last season's 2-2 draw arrive, you'll firmly be in the money. Multiple score bets are also an excellent idea, especially if you're backing the away side.
