Arsenal-Liverpool goal rush to be started by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang?
The column incurred a small midweek loss that would have been a healthy profit had Real Madrid not added a fourth goal in injury time to scupper our 11/2 tip about them winning 3-0 at Melilla. The Premier League returns this weekend with another blockbuster clash that promises goals, while we feel the bookmakers have got Watford's price to win at Newcastle all wrong.
Running total: -£17.09
Watford look a hot bet at 7/4 to beat beleaguered Newcastle United on Saturday. For neutral observers, Watford's form has been one of the nicer surprises of the season so far with them claiming six wins in 10 top flight matches. In contrast Newcastle have made their worst start to a league season in 120 years. The Hornets battered Huddersfield last weekend and can land the odds on Tyneside against another Premier League side struggling for goals. It is also worth noting that Watford did the double over Newcastle last season, and with this in mind the Hornets look one of the best bets on the coupon this weekend.
Selection: £4 on Watford to win at 7/4
The Tasty Treble
Both teams to score (8/13) looks the obvious shout when Bournemouth entertain Manchester United. The Red Devils have shipped 17 goals in just 10 games so far while Bournemouth will have their tails up after two wins inside a week. Tottenham (5/4) also look a good bet to beat a Wolves side who've lost -- and failed to score -- in each of their last two Premier League games. Add in Chelsea (4/6) to cover a one-goal handicap against struggling Crystal Palace on Sunday for a treble with bet365 paying better than 5/1.
Selection: £4 on the treble at 5.05/1
The First Goal Flutter
Liverpool make the trip to the Emirates to face an in-form Arsenal side on Saturday evening in a game that screams goals. Jurgen Klopp's men are favourites with the bookmakers, but Arsenal are flying and it could be worth backing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score first at 5/1. The Arsenal striker has been directly involved in 22 goals in just 23 Premier League matches so far, scoring 17 and laying on five assists.
Selection: £1 on Aubameyang to score first at 5/1
The Euro Wager
AC Milan have yet to keep a clean sheet in Serie A this season so both teams to score looks a fair price 4/5 when they head to Udinese. Gonzalo Higuain has hit five in the league already for the Rossoneri, who should claim the three point but won't have things all their own way at the Stadio Friuli.
Selection: £5 on both teams to score at 4/5
The Wildcard Tip
Pitting Sergio Aguero (11/5) and Jamie Vardy (4/1) together in a first goal-scorer double pays 15/1 with bet365 and looks decent. Aguero has bagged six Premier League goals so far and will fancy his chances of adding to that against Southampton, while Vardy's pace will be a handful for Cardiff's defence.
