Romelu Lukaku to score for Everton against Sunderland

Lukaku

 

Everton’s giant Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku to score against Sunderland is the first futures bet I am making this weekend. It would be extremely suprising if he didn’t find the back of the net at least once during the 90 minutes.

When Everton beat Sunderland 3-0 on the road back in September, Lukaku grabbed all three goals. Lukaku has scored six goals in six matches, including four in a 6-3 home win against Bournemouth.

Everton have won their previous three home games by three goals, while Sunderland have conceded at least three goals in four of their past five defeats.

Lukaku is +260 to open the scoring and -150 to find the back of the net during the 90-minutes. Both bets seem like ridiculous value, all things considered.

Jamie Vardy to score for Leicester City against Liverpool

Vardy

 

Nobody could have predicted Leicester City’s fall from grace. Champions last season, relegation threatened this season. The same goes for the form of Jamie Vardy. He banged in 28 goals in 48 appearances in 2015/16 but has only eight goals in 35 appearances this season.

Vardy did, however, score in Leicester’s 2-1 away defeat to Sevilla in the Champions League midweek and his pace will terrify Liverpool’s back four.

The way Liverpool play often leaves them vulnerable at the back, which could play right into Leicester’s hands. The lightning quick Vardy will be looking to capitalize on the space left between Liverpool’s attack-minded midfield and their less-than-stellar defensive line.

The England striker is priced at a long +900 to score first and a bargain +260 to score at anytime; I’ll be opting for the latter.

Salomon Rondon to score for West Bromwich Albion against Bournemouth

Rondon

 

Fast, powerful and an eye for goal is how most pundits would describe the West Bromwich Albion striker Salomon Rondon. The Venezuelan, a £12 million signing in August 2015, has 16 goals in 59 appearances so for for West Brom, seven of those coming in the current campaign.

While his scoring record for WBA may not be the best, nor is the fact he hasn’t scored in his previous nine league games, I’m backing Rondon to get on the scoresheet this week.

West brom host Bournemouth this weekend and the visitors have an appalling defensive record, the main reaason Rondon is bound to score. 

In 12 away games, Bournemouth have only picked up eight points due to their inability to defend.

WBA

They have conceded 28 goals on the road, the worst record in the league, while recording only two shutouts in those 12 games.

There’s great value in the +400 on Rondon’s name being the first on the score sheet and the +130 on him putting at least a goal past Bournemouth a real steal.
