There is a whole host of sporting action to look forward this weekend including Chelsea vs Arsenal in the Premier League and Gennady Golovkin vs Canelo Alvarez in the boxing. In this article I will be posting five betting tips for the weekend of sport ahead, some of them are long shots and some of them safer bets. Take a look through and see what takes your fancy!
1. Philipe Coutinho to Score at Anytime – 7/4 (Bet365)
Philipe Coutinho made his return to action for Liverpool on Wednesday night after coming off the substitutes bench in the 2-2 draw with Sevilla at Anfield. Coutinho was given a rousing reception by Liverpool fans, despite spending this summer agitating for a move away from the club. He may well get a chance to start a game this weekend following the suspension of Sadio Mane and I’m backing the little Brazilian wizard to find the net against Burnley.
2. Romelu Lukaku 2 or More – 4/1 (Bet365)
The main narrative of Sunday’s game between Manchester United and Everton is Wayne Rooney’s return to Old Trafford and the former England captain could be worth a punt to find the net. On the flipside, Romelu Lukaku is facing off against his former club for the first time since leaving and I’m backing the big Belgian to continue his fine goal scoring form and find the net multiple times in this game.
3. Gennady Golovkin to win – 8/13 (Bet365).
Arguably the two best boxers in the world right now face off against each other on Saturday night in Las Vegas and it’s not an easy fight to call. I’m backing Golovkin, who is the slight favourite for the fight with bookies, because he has the edge in one-punch-power. It’s going to be a really close fight in the desert and I fancy Golovkin’s power could see him over the line.
4. England to beat West Indies in the first T20 – 4/7 (Bet365)
England edged the recent test series 2-1, but West Indies showed that they are no pushovers in the second test match. Despite that defeat, England start the first T20 match as favourites. England have the batting firepower to blow any team in the world away and if they get things right then the West Indies should be no match for this England side. The Best quotes for this match you can find in a betfair review.
5. Alvaro Morata FGS vs Arsenal – 7/2 (Bet365)
The biggest game of the weekend in England takes place on Sunday afternoon as Chelsea host Arsenal at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea have already beaten Spurs this season whilst Arsenal were embarrassed by Liverpool in their only game against a top six side so far this season. Alvaro Morata has started the season well for Chelsea and I’m backing him to open the scoring on Sunday against a less than convincing Arsenal back line.
