JORDAN gave Friday a miss and that was a good call and his focus on Saturday is on the MLS and he has a German/English double too.
He says: “I’m looking to a game in New York where stats screams goals. Here are a few stats to back up the bet.
“There have been over 2.5 goals scored in Chicago’s last 9 games (Major League Soccer). There have been over 2.5 goals scored in 8 of New York City’s last 10 home games.
“New York City have scored at least 2 goals in 7 of their last 8 home games. New York City have conceded at least 2 goals in their last 4. Chicago have scored at least 2 goals in 6 of their last 7.
“Frank Lampard is out with a calf strain which is a huge blow for NYC with his current form but luckily this is the MLS and it doesn’t take much of a player to have a good performance.
“David Villa will obviously be the man they need to step up with Frank’s absence and you can get him to score at evens with various firms. He has scored 37 per cent of their home goals this season.”
New York City v Chicago Fire BTTS & Over 2.5 Goals (1am)
David Villa to score – 2pts WINS
MLS Over 1.5 Team Goals Double
New York Red Bulls (12am)
Jozy Altidore (Toronto)
Bradley Wright-Phillips (New York Red Bulls)
Anytime Scorer Double (57-20,– 0.5pt
Wright-Phillips has scored 8 goals in his last six competitive fixtures with Altidore taking advantage of Giovinco’s absence and notching 6 goals in Toronto’s last four games. Obviously I like both sides at home and both will be keen to keep their form going. Giovinco is supposedly back for Toronto which could hinder Altidore’s chances, but for half a point its certainly worth a go.
Wolfsburg Over 1.5 Team Goals (2.30pm)
West Brom To Score (3pm)
Werder Bremen continued to disappoint their home fans in the Bundesliga with Mainz’s late winner in the week and will now face what should be a tougher test with Wolfsburg coming to town. Wolfsburg aren’t the same side they were a few years ago but still have talent in the ranks with Draxler, Gomez and Blaszczykowski (yes I checked how to spell it). Wolfsburg have scored two or more in their last four at Bremen (13 in total) and should score well before Mainz started mounting their comeback.
Another side fading are Stoke. It’s desperate times already for the Potters and Mark Hughes who only have a point to show for their “efforts” with five games played. A 2-1 defeat to Hull in the Cup midweek will not help matters and the fans are likely getting restless.
West Brom are off the back of a tremendous victory against West Ham, scoring four goals for the first time since February 2015, funnily enough in an FA cup tie against the Hammers. Seeing these two name on the card would genuinely give off a 0-0 bore draw but I personally think it could be opposite. Stoke are clearly struggling in defence and are yet to keep a clean sheet in the league. West Brom are by no means goal machines but you have to fancy their chances of getting one today. They let me down last week at Bournemouth but I’ll stick with them against the rotting Potters.
