Our tipster Jones Knows has two key bets to attack this weekend with an 11/1 shot that ‘seeps of value’ when Chelsea meet Manchester United.
How did our bets do this past weekend?
Some say Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had a bad weekend. They clearly didn’t follow my bets.
Unless the sacked Manchester United manager picked up a reported £7.5million for being useless. No wonder he was cheerful in his interview with the club after his resignation.
I only had cheese and beans on toast to enjoy.
It was a raunchy weekend full of results for the undersigned. Fortunately, these weekends don’t happen often, or I’d seriously question whether I’d put so much of my life into this pursuit. Collecting stamps seems less stressful.
Three points were lost as Leicester were in a pitiful mood against Chelsea and failed to put pressure on the impressive side of Thomas Tuchel. My confident bet of two points on over 2.5 goals, BTTS and the match with 27 or more shots at 7/2 never had any hope of landing with Leicester so confident.
It also got much worse…
The 10/1 treble of Leicester vs Chelsea to have 25 or more shots, West Ham to beat Wolves and Lucas Moura to have a shot on target vs Leeds lost on each leg. Embarrassing.
We’re on a retrieval mission this weekend. I have two more doubles to follow. Let’s get back on track.
P+L = +28
1 point on Southampton to have four or more corners vs Liverpool & Tariq Lamptey to have one or more shots vs Leeds (11/4 with Sky Bet – Bet Here!)
I like Southampton and especially their impressive manager when they travel to play against the big boys. Ralph Hasenhuttl’s style always encourages his players to break forward if possible.
That has led to me showing some interest in how many corners Southampton can win at Anfield. Southampton have won the third most corners in the Premier League this season (75), with a total of 8,6,8,10.7 from their last five games due to the attacking nature of their fullbacks. in plenty of opportunities for corners near the by-line.
Sky Bet’s line for them to win four or more on 11/10 certainly has a chance to land. The Saints have won five corners at Manchester City this season and have won four or more in their last three visits to Anfield under Hasenhuttl, including 11 wins in their 4-0 defeat in the 2019-20 season.
I’m doubling down on the Saints with another short-price roster that has a good chance of landing.
Tariq Lamptey is hugely expensive in the player shooting market with Sky Bet for Brighton vs Leeds. Since returning from a long hiatus, he has been playing much higher, almost as a right winger. He had Brighton’s best chance of the game last weekend at Aston Villa, but his effort was beaten by Emiliano Martinez and he was responsible for two shots on target in the last home game against Newcastle.
The triangle of him, Pascal Gross and Adam Webster found some dangerous positions in the defeat at Villa, but space was limited. They will find more here and Lamptey is a very strong bet to score a shot on target at 4/5. The double pays out 11/4 with Sky Bet.
1pt on Reece James to have one or more shots on target & Antonio Rudiger to have two or more shots (11/1 with Sky Bet – Bet Here!)
This is one bet that should interest you immensely on Super Sunday – and one that has a good chance of landing on 1/11.
Chelsea’s ability to find goals from all over the field has yet to be really taken into account by the markets.
Thirteen of Chelsea’s 30 Premier League goals have been scored by defenders – no other team has had more than four goals from defenders.
There are several angles to consider in the shots and goals market for Chelsea players. With Harry Maguire missing, United will be vulnerable to set pieces. That makes Antonio Rudiger (9/1 with Sky Bet), Thiago Silva (8/1 with Sky Bet) and Trevor Chalobah (9/1 with Sky Bet) all runners in the forever goals market. Rüdiger, who also enjoys attacking from a distance, has had at least one shot on target in his last 11 games in all competitions and has had two or more shots in five of his last eight Premier League games. That’s a 5/2 chance with Sky Bet going to happen again and it’s a big part of the value.
Reece James is also a must-back in the shooting markets, but this time in target selection shots. James is Chelsea’s top scorer in the Premier League this season with four as the quality of his attacking play has been catapulted to another level. He’s got a striker’s instinct for goals from the fullback – just look at his effort against Juventus in the midweek. It was outrageous.
James has had seven shots on target in his last five games in all competitions and has averaged 0.8 shots on target every 90 minutes this season. Sky Bet has priced the James and Rudiger corners as friendly as a very tasty 11/1 shot.
A price that oozes value.
