Super Saturday is the day most of the world are sitting at home, extremely chilled an looking to make their next profits by diving through the world of football. I have short listed a few picks that could hopefully be that answer.
England Premier League
Swansea v Chelsea – Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.93 (Bet365) – 3 points
Chelsea to beat Swansea @ 1.61 (Bet365) – 5 points
Chelsea travel way to a Swansea side in rollicking form, hoping to secure another victory to maintain the pace with Manchester City who are at the top of the table so far. Chelsea under Conte have started to get their winning spirit back, while also playing some decently attractive football. The team relies a lot on strong offensive unit in Costa, Willian, Hazard and Oscar to create the chances as well as score the goals. So far this season they have been doing it; with all of their games averaging nearly 3 per game. Chelsea have scored a minimum of 2 goals in each game while Diego Costa and Eden Hazard have rediscovered their form and found the back of the net twice already.
Swansea City are a prime candidate relegation once they sold off their 3 biggest players in Andre Ayew, Baftembi Gomis and Ashley Williams. They had beaten Burnley but then lost to Hull and Leicester City. Swansea still managed to find the back of the net with their counter attacking football style. They have a decent attacking lineup with Fer, Sigurdsson, Rutledge, Montero while record signing Borja Baston will likely make a start. Swansea will know that their pace on the counter attack has the ability to trouble Chelsea who have conceded in 2 out of the 3 games played so far, and with David Luiz on the defensive end, there is a chance mistakes can happen and they can score.
If you exclude the last game played at the back end of last season, which was a lost cause for Chelsea, the previous 3 games saw a minimum of 4 goals being scored in that game, and if Conte is serious about showcasing his strong talent out there; they should look to run rampant against a weaker Swansea lineup.
Aston Villa v Nottingham Forest – Both to Score @ 1.91 (William Hill) – 2 points
Aston Villa have still been struggling to adjust to life back in the Championship as they are currently sitting in 17th spot, with 1 win, 2 draws and 2 losses. They have been decent on the offensive end, failing to find the net only in the 2 out of the 5 games played so far. Their offensive lineup has been led by Rudy Gestede, Jordan Ayew, Ross McCormack and Jack Grealish; all of whom are exciting not he offensive end. McCormack in particular was bought into the team for his experience at this level and his love for scoring goals. Villa’s games have been far from entertaining where they have been conceded goals as well as scored.
Nottingham Forest are the second highest scoring team in the league netting 11 goals in their 5 games played so far. Burke, Assombalonga and Thomas Lam have netted the 9 goals scored by them so far and while Assombalonga is an injury doubt for this game; they still manage dot put 3 past Leeds last week, so confidence will be there to find the back of the net. Forest will also have Lord Bendtner possibly in their lineup to help add some extra offensive punch if needed. The problem for Forest has been their poor defensive record, conceding 13 goals in their 7 games played in all competitions including the EFL Cup.
This game renews 2 of the great rivals from the past in the Championship division of England and one can expect an exciting kick off come lunchtime this Sunday, and I expect both teams to continue on their scoring form and find the back of the net.
Real Betis have played 2 games this campaign so far, and that has seen them lose a 6-2 thriller against Barcelona, while drawing boring 0-0 against Deportivo last time around. Critical to their scoring efforts was Ruben Castro who netted twice against Barcelona, and had several good opportunities in front of goal to find the winner against Deportivo but unable to get their final touch.
Castro is always the main guy to depend on for Betis because he taken all the penalties, set pieces for Betis in addition to being the furthest forward player for Betis. Castro will be licking his lips as they go to face a Valencia outfit who has shown to be weak defensively conceding 5 goals in their 2 games played so far. They have lost Mustafi to Arsenal while adding mistake-prone Mangala to their lineup.
Castro will be looking to find another goal to help lead his side to victory, and the odds as such of 3.25 is too good to miss out on Castro to score anytime.
One of my favourite teams to bet on in the world with a good chance of bets landing is Porto B from the Segunda division. This team is generally been the architect for the development of players for the Porto first team. Last year Porto B won the division by scoring 84 goals in 46 games played while also conceding 52 goals on the defensive end. Porto B top scorer Andre Silva has now broken into the first team and started out the new season scoring goals for the team. Ismael Diaz still stays from the last seasons team while Varela and Galeno have started out the season netting 4 goals between them. Porto’s 5 games have so far season 14 goals already, 7 for and 7 against; and this entertainment should continue once again as they welcome Penafiel this weekend.
Penafiel travel away to Porto knowing that victory can move them up potentially to 2nd spot in the table. They have relied largely on a team effort to see them progress till here. They have scored 6 and concede 4 goals in their games so far. Last year they finished 12th in the table with average of 2 goals per game. When took on Porto last year, both of their games landed up with a minimum of 2 goals while Porto won 3-1 at this same matchup last season.
Porto B have been a strong team in the scoring department, while their defence has been also largely developing, and thereby conceding goals. I expect this to be another goal fest game; so I am backing over 2,2.5 Asian goal Line.
