Gameweek 7 is about to begin and Betway have joined in with a couple of Super Boost offers.
These days, it’s rare to see eight Premier League matches on a Saturday but we have six at 15:00 (BST) before Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool in the evening. Just one takes place on Sunday before Monday Night Football and Tuesday’s rearranged Luton Town v Burnley.
WHAT IS THE GAMEWEEK 7 SUPER BOOST?
If you’re new to the Super Boost, it’s effectively enhanced odds on cherry-picked match events.
A trio of match events, to be exact, so you’ll need all three to come in.
On Saturday, Betway are offering 2/1 odds for this treble rather than the original 10/11:
- Son Heung-min (1+ Shots on Target)
- Mohamed Salah (2+ Shots)
- Destiny Udogie (2+ Tackles)
Meanwhile, there’s 6/1 instead of 15/4 on offer for Sunday’s Super Boost:
- Bryan Mbeumo (1+ Shots on Target)
- Taiwo Awoniyi (1+ Shots on Target)
- Morgan Gibbs-White (1+ Shots on Target)
This week’s boosts focus on two particular matches. The first pitches two in-demand Fantasy Premier League (FPL) midfielders against each other – Son Heung-min and Mohamed Salah.
Stats have greatly improved for Son since he moved up front three matches ago. Five goals, whilst his six shots on target average out at two per game. Therefore requiring just one on target seems very reasonable versus a high defensive line that he’s scored past four times in five meetings.
In response, Salah also does well versus Spurs, netting three times last season. He’s a large reason why Liverpool are the leading team for big chances (23) so far, with the Egyptian yet to blank in FPL. He sits in fifth place for attempts (20) and has recorded at least three of them in four of six outings.
Trying to stop him will be left-back Destiny Udogie. He’s made 18 tackles over the latest three games, with 10 in last weekend’s North London derby. Just two are needed here.
Then, on Sunday, Nottingham Forest host Brentford. These odds are longer and riskier, based on stats, but it’s still very winnable.
An explosive start has quietened for Bryan Mbeumo, blanking in three of his last four. Each match still averages two shots inside the box, ranking joint-fourth for big chances (seven).
Slightly behind in joint sixth is Taiwo Awoniyi, with five of them. His seven-match streak of goals is over and he’s had no shots on target in three successive games but two of these were trips to Chelsea and Manchester City. There’ll be confidence in getting back on the score sheet here.
Team-mate Morgan Gibbs-White is currently on just two shots on target so far and is yet to register a ‘big chance’. Then again, his final seven appearances of last season brought three goals, five assists and seven on target.
