Saturday's Premier League Bet Builder tips: Salah to have last say at Brighton
- There are six Premier League games on Saturday with big ramifications at both ends
- Brighton and Liverpool produced a 3-3 Anfield classic the last time they met
- Goals could be scarce when 19th-placed Wolves host 17th-placed West Ham
Saturday's slate of Premier League games feature some mouth-watering contests with plenty at stake in terms of the title race and the relegation scrap.
Our Bet Builder tips cover two 3pm games as Brighton bid to overhaul Liverpool and enter the top six, while Wolves can drop West Ham into the relegation zone with a victory at Molineux.
Salah to strike again at Amex Stadium
Bet 1: Mohamed Salah to score the last goal
Liverpool have a pretty good record at the Amex Stadium, winning on five of their last six visits and drawing the other. But the key to most of those victories has been Mohamed Salah, who almost always scores a decisive goal.
The Egyptian star has bagged six goals and assisted six more in 11 career appearances against the Seagulls and scored four times in five games played in Sussex — three of which have been the last goal in those contests.
He may be lagging behind his usual goalscoring pace this season with only seven goals in 17 Premier League appearances, but the 30-year-old has hit three in five games since the World Cup.
Bet 2: Both teams to score
The two clubs involved in this fixture are way ahead of the league average for games that see both teams score, which stands at 51.7%.
Both teams have bagged in the last seven Brighton games to take their BTTS ratio to 65% and it is now up to 71% of the Reds' fixtures, including each of the last six.
When they produced that classic 3-3 at Anfield earlier this season, both teams had hit the back of the net by the 33rd minute.
Bet 3: Post or crossbar to be hit in match
No club has hit the woodwork more times in the Premier League this season than Liverpool, who have heard that familiar ping a total of 12 times across their 17 matches.
And no player has hit the post or crossbar more than Darwin Nunez, whose luck still appears to be out when it comes to finishing off the chances his Reds team-mates are creating.
The Uruguayan may be due a change in fortune, but so may some of the Brighton players who have been outperforming their usual accuracy levels when it comes to shooting, such as Alexis Mac Allister (double last season's shots on target %) and Pascal Gross (triple).
Wolves no longer chasing their tails under Lopetegui
Bet 1: Wolves or Draw in the match
Wolves are an improving force under Julen Lopetegui, who has instilled some positivity and direction into their play in the post-World Cup period.
The Molineux men have added some quality in midfield in the shape of Matheus Nunes, while Mateus Cunha has been brought in up front and they are sure to give West Ham's defence some problems on Saturday.
They were better than Manchester United for spells in their last home game and can avoid defeat against a Hammers side that have collected just two points from a possible 21 away from home since the start of September.
Bet 2: Under 3 goals in the match for both teams combined
Goals have been pretty scarce in West Ham games this season with only two Premier League clubs averaging fewer than the 2.17 goals per game when David Moyes' side are in action.
One of those clubs is Wolves, who have seen fewer than three goals scored in 61% of their games.
West Ham's ratio of games with fewer than three goals is even higher at 72%, so the prospects for this clash being shown last on Match of the Day look pretty good.
Bet 3: Max Kilman to receive a card in the match
Kilman does not have a reputation for being a dirty player or anything like that as he has become renowned for staying on his feet and not committing to tackles unless he really has to.
Yet the Wolves centre-back has received three yellow cards in his last four games in all competitions — all of which have been since Lopetegui took charge.
Perhaps the Spanish boss, used to seeing his defenders rack up cards by the dozen in LaLiga, has told Kilman to make his presence felt a bit more.
