    Everton looks to end drought versus rivals Liverpool

    Some big rivalries highlight an action-packed weekend in the Barclays Premier League, including a new chapter in the storied Merseyside Derby.

    Soccer Authority breaks down what you need to know for three of the biggest matches in the Premier League.

    Chelsea v Southampton

    Chelsea have suffered yet another testing week and tomorrow they’ll welcome a Southampton side who are four places above them in the BPL table.

    A run of three-straight victories for Jose Mourinho’s men came to an end with a 2-2 draw at Newcastle United and a 2-1 defeat to Porto in the UEFA Champions League over the last week.

    As a result, the pressure is back on Chelsea as they face a Saints side who are on a high after winning their last two matches, scoring nine goals in the process.

    Ronald Koeman’s men are on a poor run of away form, with no league win on the road in 10 matches – a run only equaled by Newcastle.

    This game is hard to call, and we expect it to be a cagey, hard-fought encounter tomorrow.

    Diego Costa is suspended, and Thibaut Courtois (knee) is still a long-term absentee while Jordy Clasie could return to the squad from Southampton, who are without Steven Caulker, Fraser Forster and Florin Gardos.

    Match Facts

    – Jose Mourinho has never lost a Barclays Premier League match to Southampton (W4 D2).

    – Southampton have won one of their last 13 trips to Stamford Bridge, a 4-2 victory in January 2002 (D4 L8).

    – Both league meetings between these clubs last season ended with a 1-1 scoreline, with all four goals coming in the first half.

    – No side has allowed their opponents more shots on target in the BPL this season than Chelsea (45), while Southampton have allowed the fewest (17).

    Everton v Liverpool

    Under pressure Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers knows that a win against bitter city rivals Everton will do a lot to silence his doubters this Sunday.

    Liverpool have struggled early in 2015-16 and that was highlighted in midweek when they could only manage a disappointing 1-1 draw with Swiss side Sion in the Europa League. A 3-2 victory at home to Aston Villa last Saturday ended a run of four Barclays Premier League matches without a win, and key players were rested in midweek ahead of this game.

    Everton are on a good run of form with three wins from their last four matches in all competitions. Everton sit in fifth place, four places above Liverpool. However, the Toffees have not tasted Merseyside derby success over Liverpool since October 2010.

    Everton put in another good showing this week when they came from two goals down to beat West Bromwich Albion 3-2 at The Hawthorns last Monday. However, boss Roberto Martinez is having to contend with a lengthy injury list.

    While Seamus Coleman and John Stones could return from hamstring and knee injuries respectively, Muhamed Besic (hamstring), Tom Cleverley (ankle/foot), Leighton Baines (ankle/foot), Tony Hibbert (knee) and Steven Pienaar (hamstring) are all out.

    For Liverpool, Dejan Lovren (ankle), Roberto Firmino (back) and captain Jordan Henderson (foot) are all sidelined.

    Match Facts

    – Everton have gone nine league matches without a victory against their neighbors Liverpool. They have not gone 10 without a victory against the Reds since 1984 (a run of 11 matches).

    – Liverpool have lost just one of their last eight BPL matches at Goodison Park, losing 2-0 in October 2010. The last three have ended in draws.

    – Daniel Sturridge has scored five times against Everton in the league. The only club he has more league goals against is Newcastle United (6).

    Arsenal v Manchester United

    Arsenal versus United was always seen as a title-defining fixture around the turn of the century, as Arsene Wenger’s side dueled for supremacy with Alex Ferguson’s United.

    Both sides have struggled to challenge in the last couple of seasons, but Sunday’s contest at the Emirates Stadium once again has a top-of-the-table edge to it. With Arsenal sitting just three points behind league leaders United, this is a crucial game even at this stage of the season.

    Arsenal’s impressive 5-2 victory at the King Power Stadium last Saturday was followed up by a 3-2 home defeat to Olympiacos in the UEFA Champions League. David Ospina was controversially selected in goal during the week but Petr Cech is set to return this weekend.

    United will travel to north London on the back of four-consecutive wins in all competitions. Last Saturday’s 3-0 victory over Sunderland moving them top of the BPL table for the first time in over two years. A 2-1 win over Wolfsburg in mid-week in the Champions League means the Red Devils will go to Arsenal in excellent form.

    Laurent Koscielny (hamstring), Mikel Arteta (knock) and Mathieu Flamini (hamstring) are definitely out, but Wenger expects Francis Coquelin to be fit.

    Match Facts

    – Manchester United are unbeaten in four away matches against Arsenal. They have never gone five without a loss away to the Gunners in the Barclays Premier League era.

    – Arsenal’s win rate of 24 percent against Manchester United in the BPL is their lowest versus any team in the competition.

    – Wayne Rooney scored his first Barclays Premier League goal (October 2002), his first league goal for Man Utd (October 2004) and his 100th BPL goal (January 2010) against Arsenal.

    – Louis van Gaal has lost just one of his five meetings with Arsene Wenger (all competitions).



    Lucas is a power puncher, who punishes his opponents. Viktor Postol is a great fighter, but has no power in his punch. Viktor has a tight defense, but fights stiff. Viktor will have problems trying to defend the left hook. Viktor will struggle since he fights from the mid range. Lucas pulls the victory here.


    CFL Betting Notes – Week 15
    By David Schwab

    The CFL is closing in on the start of this year’s playoffs heading into Week 15 of the regular season as teams continue to jockey for position in their quest to win this season’s Grey Cup title. Defending champion Calgary strengthened its grip on the West Division title with last Friday’s 25-23 squeaker over Winnipeg, but it came nowhere close to covering against the spread as an 8 ½-point road favorite.

    Saturday’s CFL slate featured a double-header of action starting with Edmonton getting by British Columbia 29-23, but the Eskimos could not cover as 12-point favorites at home. The upsets continued with Toronto carving-out a key 35-26 victory against Ottawa as a 2 ½-point road underdog. Week 14 closed things out with Saskatchewan doubling-up its straight-up wins for the year with a 33-21 victory against Montreal as a 2 ½-point home underdog.

    Saturday, Oct. 3

    Edmonton Eskimos (9-4 SU, 8-5 ATS) vs. Winnipeg Blue Bombers (4-9 SU, 5-7-1 ATS)
    Point-spread: Edmonton -5 ½
    Total: 46 ½

    Game Overview

    Edmonton remains one game off the pace in the West following its win against the Lions, which was its third in a row SU. The Eskimos continue to boast the stingiest defense in the CFL in points allowed (18.3) and their offense is putting up an average of 25.1 points a game. Wide Receiver Derel Walker pulled-in eight receptions for 121 yards and a score in last week’s win.

    The Blue Bombers have posted just one SU victory in their last seven games, but they have covered ATS in two of their last three outings. The total has gone OVER in three of their last four games while giving-up an average of 26 points even with a 22-7 Week 12 win against Saskatchewan included in this same stretch. Winnipeg is 3-6-2 ATS in its last 11 home games.

    Betting Trends

    Edmonton is 5-12 SU in its last 17 road games against Winnipeg and the total has stayed UNDER in 12 of the last 17 meetings here.

    Saskatchewan Roughriders (2-11 SU, 4-9 ATS) vs. British Columbia Lions (4-8 SU, 6-6 ATS)
    Point-spread: BC -3
    Total: 51 ½

    Game Overview

    Saskatchewan has just two SU wins all season long; however it comes into this West Division rivalry 2-2 both SU and ATS in its last four games. Kevin Glenn completed just 45.2 of his 31 attempts in Sunday’s win for 212 yards and a score, but Jerome Messam did a good job running the ball with 111 yards rushing and a score on 15 attempts.

    The Lions have just one SU win in their last six games, but they are 3-1 ATS in their last four contests. Jonathon Jennings did a good job throwing the ball in the loss to Edmonton last week with 281 yards passing and two touchdown throws, but BC’s ground game went nowhere with just 37 total rushing yards on 17 carries.

    Betting Trends

    BC won two previous meetings this season both SU and ATS. It is now 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings overall and 5-2 ATS in its last seven home games against the Roughriders. The total has stayed UNDER in six of the last seven meetings in BC.

    3-Unit Play. #296. Take Winnipeg +6 over Edmonton (Saturday @ 4:05pm est)
    As per Winnipeg and Edmonton, quality underdog here. Winnipeg only has 4 wins this year and they played admirably in their last game losing 23-25 against Calgary as 9 point underdogs. Prior to that they beat Saskatchewan and this team has been showing more promise of late. Plus, remember this team was routed the last time these two played each other 3-32 on July 25th and that revenge alone is worth a shot here on Winnipeg to hang tough this weekend. Let’s roll with these two selections as we set up a strong run to close the 2nd half of the CFL Season.

    3-Unit Play. Take Crystal Palace (-120) over West Brom (7:45 a.m., Saturday, October 3) (English Premier League)

    South London-based Crystal Palace are coming off three points away to Watford, and they’ll continue their confidence at home. West Brom play after losing 3-2 to Everton after leading that match 2-0. I don’t think they are a quality enough side, certainly not at the moment to earn a result in the English capital. This is a case of two sides moving in opposite directions. We play the modest favorite here and bank on the victory, 2-0 to the Eagles here.

    7-Unit Play. Take Chelsea (-128) over Southampton (12:30 p.m., Saturday, October 3) (English Premier League)

    Even considering Chelsea’s struggles this season, this price is too low considering the Blues are home in a game they need to win. Jose Mourinho’s men have not looked good for the most part this campaign, including earlier in the week when they lost in Portugal to Porto in the Champions League. But perhaps all the more reason to jump on them with a very good line at their grounds. This is simply a case of buy low when stock has dropped. Chelsea get back in the win column vs. the Saints. Plus, add on the fact that Southampton has not won 3 in a row this season which speaks volumes as they have troubling handling success. Sure, they have looked good of late and the line is dropping but no fear here as Chelsea needs a big win and why not get it at home to get their first win in 3 tries as Southampton has yet to win 3 in a row this season thus far.

    3-Unit Play. Take Schalke (-122) over Cologne (9:30 a.m., Sunday, October 4) (German Bundesliga)

    Schalke are going good at the moment in the German top flight. They currently sit in third place behind Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. At home another three points would do them a world of good. Cologne have allowed nine goals in their three away league matches this season. I really like the momentum of Schalke and will back them to win and continue their fine form in the Bundesliga the first few months of the season.




    4 Unit Play. Take Over 2.5 -125 Leicester City at Norwich (10:00a.m., Saturday, Oct 3) (Graded after regulation time – 90min – plus injury time)

    So last weekend between the games of Leicester and Norwich a total of 11 goals were scored in their games. Leicester gave up 5 goals last weekend to Arsenal and Saturday morning I see Norwich having no problem scoring goals against Leicester City. Norwich games 3 out of their last 4 games have gone OVER 2.5 goals and this trend will cash again on Saturday.

    3 Unit Play. Take Under 3.5 -130 Newcastle at Manchester City (10:00a.m., Saturday, Oct 3) (Graded after regulation time – 90min – plus injury time)

    If this total was 2.5 or 3 I probably wouldn’t have played the UNDER but since the oddsmakers have posted 3.5 I knew I was going to play the UNDER. Newcastle last 6 games 5 of them didn’t have 3 goals or more and the Man City offense has been hit or miss so far this EPL season.


    3 Unit Play. Take Manchester United +.05 (half goal) -120 over Arsenal (11:00a.m., Sunday, Oct 4) (Graded after regulation time – 90min – plus injury time – if this ends in a draw we have a Winner)

    This game smells like a DRAW and I believe this game will end in a DRAW so with that I see great value with Manchester United Sunday early afternoon. Both clubs come into this match with a 4-1-1 record in their last 6 meetings and again wouldn’t shock me to see this game end in a DRAW but if this game doesn’t end in a DRAW I believe Manchester United can steal this road game.


    5 Unit Play. Take Over 2.5 -130 LA Galaxy at Seattle (9:30p.m., Sunday, Oct 4) (Graded after regulation time – 90min – plus injury time – if this ends in a draw we have a PUSH)

    Last Sunday we had LA at home against FC Dallas and the Galaxy won 3-2 and we hit our 7-Unit Play and this Sunday we look for more LA offense to help us this ticket. Seattle at home have been OVER machines and the Sounders last 4 home games all 4 of them went OVER the 2.5 goal mark. Both clubs have goal scorers all over the field and the bench and Sunday night I see 3 or 4 goals easily hitting. Not going to lie I was a bit shocked that this total wasn’t posted 3 goals but since we are still getting great value on the OVER I would hurry up and bet this game because this number will move.
