— FPL PREDICTIONS 🎯 (@predictions_fpl) December 15, 2023
The Premier League has emerged as a haven for over 2.5 goal enthusiasts to capitalize on their predictions. With 160 games played this season, the per-game goal average stands at an impressive 3.12, poised to surpass last season’s record of 2.85. This sets the stage for a potentially high-scoring Sean Dyche derby, with favorable odds of Evens available on over 2.5 goals.
This surprising price is supported by the fact that Turf Moor has witnessed an average of 3.75 goals per game in eight Premier League matches this season, with six surpassing the 2.5 goal line. Everton’s defensive vulnerabilities, especially with Jarrad Branthwaite suspended, further enhance the prospects of an engaging and goal-laden contest.
Arsenal vs Brighton, Sunday 2 pm
Brighton’s impressive goal-scoring record against top-tier opponents makes their clash with Arsenal intriguing. In their last 26 matches against elite teams, Brighton has scored 46 goals, showcasing their offensive prowess. Roberto De Zerbi’s attacking approach and Pascal Gross’s creative contributions add an extra layer of excitement to this fixture. A bet on Brighton to score two or more goals at 11/4 with Sky Bet is worth considering.
Brentford vs Aston Villa, Sunday 2 pm
Alex Moreno’s role in Villa’s left-wing back position becomes pivotal in the absence of Lucas Digne. With Unai Emery’s attacking structure heavily reliant on this position, Moreno’s attacking threat makes the 9/2 odds with Sky Bet for him to register an assist an attractive proposition. Villa, buoyed by their chances, can capitalize on Moreno’s contributions for a potential away win.
West Ham vs Wolves, Sunday
David Moyes aims to rally his West Ham defense after a recent 5-0 loss. Historical data indicates that West Ham often bounces back strongly, winning 30% of matches without conceding after a heavy defeat. Wolves’ surprisingly consistent goal-scoring run may face a challenge here, making the 3/1 odds for West Ham to win to nil enticing.
Liverpool vs Manchester United, Sunday 4:30 pm
Manchester United faces an uphill battle, given their poor record away against elite teams under Erik ten Hag. Bruno Fernandes’ suspension further complicates matters. United’s strategy might involve turning the game into a dogfight, hoping to avoid a heavy defeat. Betting against a high-scoring affair, with under 3.5 goals at 10/11 with Sky Bet, could be a wise choice. Alternatively, a speculative bet on Liverpool to win 1-0 or 2-0 at 5/1 is worth considering.
