Liverpool beating Leicester City with both teams scoring ensured our biggest bet of the weekend landed and the action continues thick and fast this week with a busy round of New Year fixtures.
Running total: -£80.37
The Home Banker
Manchester City's winning run in the Premier League was ended by a bullish Crystal Palace side on Sunday and it could have been even worse for Pep Guardiola's men, who needed Ederson to make a late penalty save to preserve their unbeaten status in the league. Watford are in town on Tuesday and while the bookmakers fancy that the home win is almost a formality, it could be worth backing both teams to score at the Etihad. The Hornets have produced some decent results this season and won't go to Manchester to simply park the bus. At their best they are an exciting side to watch and if the likes of Richarlison is in the mood they could give City some real problems.
Selection: £5 on both teams to score at evens with bet365.
The Tasty Treble
Manchester United's form has been very erratic in recent months and they look anything but an attractive proposition at 4/5 to win at Everton. The Red Devils have struggled on Merseyside in recent seasons, with Everton having won four of their eight league matches at Goodison since 2010. With this in mind the draw looks a decent shout at 5/2. Elsewhere, Tottenham (3/10) look nailed on to win at Swansea while Crystal Palace look huge at 3/1 to win against very ordinary Southampton. The treble is paying in excess of 17/1 with bet365 and could help punters start the New Year with a bang.
Selection: £1 on the treble at 17.2/1 with bet365.
The Euro Wager
Paulo Dybala has struck 17 times for Juventus so far this season, including three in his last two matches and he has solid claims at 4/1 to open the scoring when Juve host Torino in the Coppa Italia on Wednesday. This Turin derby promises to be a feisty affair but the brilliant Dybala, who is on the radar of Manchester United if rumours are to be believed, looks a big price to score first at the Allianz Stadium.
Selection: £2 on Dybala to score first at 4/1 with bet365.
The Wildcard Tip
With three goals in his last four games, Jamie Vardy is currently playing with a swagger and he looks a tempting price at 9/2 to score two or more when Leicester host Huddersfield. Vardy was on the scoresheet when the teams met back in September and the England man will be confident of adding to the 10 goals he has scored already this season when the Foxes go head-to-head with the Terriers.
Selection: £2 on Vardy to score 2+ goals at 9/2 with bet365.
The Bookie Basher
Goals are expected to flow when Arsenal and Chelsea lock horns on Wednesday. On current form you might argue that Chelsea just have the edge and in all competitions, no team have won more away matches at the Emirates than the Blues. With Eden Hazard pulling the strings Chelsea warrant a bet here, with a 2-1 away win available at 10/1 with bet365.
Selection: £1 on Chelsea to win 2-1 at 10/1 with bet365.
