Saturday's Premier League Bet Builder tips: Edouard and Mbeumo to carry on scoring
- There are five Premier League games on Saturday
- Crystal Palace and Fulham are separated only by goal difference ahead of their derby
- Everton will be looking to escape the bottom three when they face Brentford
Crystal Palace welcome in Fulham for a local derby and the Eagles are currently full of goals, with Odsonne Edouard having finally found his scoring touch at Selhurst Park.
Then, in the teatime kick-off Brentford will hope for some inspiration from Bryan Mbeumo when they play host to a struggling Everton side.
Crystal Palace vs Fulham (Saturday, 3pm)
Bet 1: Crystal Palace to have 18+ tackles
Palace have not been shy about putting the tackles in this season, with only one club, Wolves, currently having totalled more through the opening five games of the campaign.
The Eagles will expect a tough encounter from Fulham this weekend as both clubs are neck-and-neck in the middle of the table and can see an opportunity to close in on the top six.
Roy Hodgson's side have put in at least 20 tackles in four of their five top-flight outings so far this term, so it makes sense to pick them to make more than 18 at Selhurst Park this weekend.
Bet 2: Joao Palhinha to receive a card in the match
If it is that type of game, Fulham will rely on their tackling supremo Joao Palhinha to get in there where the boots are flying.
The Portugal international made a Premier League-high 147 tackles last season and also totted up 14 yellow cards along the way.
Back in the Cottagers fold after his deadline-day transfer to Bayern Munich collapsed, Palhinha will be tasked with dispossessing the likes of Eberchi Eze and Cheick Doucoure — a role which could easily see him fall foul of the referee.
Bet 3: Odsonne Edouard to score anytime in the match
Edouard has made a step forward this season, according to Hodgson, and that has been borne out in his goal production.
The Frenchman, who scored for fun while at Celtic, has registered in each of his last three appearances to take his season's tally to five goals in six league and cup games.
Edouard may finally be about to fulfil his promise in the Premier League and can take advantage of any slips at the back from a Fulham defence that was breached five times by Manchester City earlier this month.
Brentford vs Everton (Saturday, 5.30pm)
Bet 1: Both teams to score - Yes
Both teams did not score when these two sides last met, as Everton held on to the first-minute lead that Dwight McNeil gave them for a vital three points at Goodison Park.
But the previous three encounters between the clubs saw goals at both ends and there should be chances created by both sides at the Gtech Community Stadium on Saturday.
All three of Brentford's home games this season have seen both sides register with two of the trio finishing two goals apiece.
Bet 2: Under 10 corners in the match for both teams combined
Everton began the campaign by earning 10 corners in defeat against Fulham, since when they are averaging exactly half that number in the subsequent Premier League games.
Meanwhile, Brentford won fewer than four corners in 12 of their 19 top-flight away games last season and two of their opening five this term.
They can be a difficult commodity to predict, but if the game stays in a drawn state for long enough, then there probably will not be a great deal of movement in the corner count.
Bet 3: Brian Mbeumo to score anytime in the match
The Cameroonian forward has bagged four Premier League goals already this season and should be the most potent threat on the pitch when these two clubs meet on Saturday.
Mbeumo, who takes penalties, has actually found the back of the net seven times in his last eight top flight appearances dating back to May.
