We’ve picked out some First Goalscorer bets for this weekend’s Premier League action
Some cracking matches for Premier League Game Week 3 and we’re going to have a few First Goalscorer bets in the hope of turning a small stake into a big pot of money.
We’ve gone for relatively short-priced selections, although when combined in a multiple bet like an accumulator, the odds multiply and leave you with a pay-out of 857/1 at bet365!
PICK 1: Memphis Depay @ 5/1 with bet365
The Dutchman missed a great chance to score at Villa Park last week although he found his range against Club Brugge in the Champions League and looks a good pick to break the deadlock against Newcastle United.
With team-mate Wayne Rooney barely registering a shot on target in three matches, we’re going for a player who is going to be bubbling with confidence and ready to demonstrate he can deliver in the Premier League.
PICK 2: Bafetimbi Gomis @ 5/1 with Coral
Swansea head to Sunderland on Saturday and you have to fancy the Welsh club to have plenty of joy against a team who have shipped seven goals in their first two matches.
Dick Advocaat has been left puzzled as to why his team are so poor and they’re not going to enjoy facing a vibrant Swans team who have Gomis as their attacking focal point.
The Frenchman is on penalty duties and has notched in his first two matches, starting to come good as a replacement for Wilfried Bony.
PICK 3: Sergio Aguero @ 7/2 with William Hill
No prizes for originality, although Aguero had a hatful of chances before eventually breaking the deadlock against Chelsea and the Argentine looks a great bet to score first against Everton on Sunday.
Aguero is in red-hot form following a summer of scoring in the Copa America and it might be hard for John Stones and Phil Jagielka to counteract their opponent when he is fed by David Silva or Jesus Navas.
PICK 4: Alexis Sanchez @ 11/2 with bet365
The biggest price of the lot although the Chilean is going to be playing in a very advanced role on Monday night, with Sanchez guilty of missing some good chances at Selhurst Park last weekend before having a helping hand in the winner.
Arsene Wenger admitted that Sanchez back in the team makes all the difference and we’re expecting Arsenal to have plenty of joy against a modest Liverpool side who were fortunate to come away from Stoke with a 1-0 win in their last away match.
Back the above four selections in a Yankee (doubles, trebles and an accumulator) with bet365. The acca odds are 857/1.
