Betway writers’ 4 to score picks for Saturday 09 03 19

Our writers predict the first scorer in these Premier League matches for our free-to-play football predictions game.

4 To Score is Betway’s free-to-play football predictions game, where you can win a jackpot of £125k by correctly predicting the first player to score in our four selected matches.

To help you make your picks, our writers reveal who they think will break the deadlock in the Premier League this weekend.

Cardiff v West Ham: Javier Hernandez {ODDS:387613847:9/2}

Cardiff have lost each of their last three games, conceding 10 goals and scoring just once, so it’s best to go with a Hammer here.

Hernandez has started four of West Ham’s last five league games and scored their first goal against Fulham two games ago.

The Mexican has the best xG of any player at the club and will cause problems for a Bluebirds’ defence without the injured Sol Bamba.

Will Rook

Manchester City v Watford: Riyad Mahrez {ODDS:387614212:19/4}

Watford have conceded 20 goals and scored just once in their last seven matches against the Premier League’s top six, so there is no option but to pick a Man City player here.

And Mahrez, who should start this match given the Champions’ (relative) injury crisis, looks like a nice differential pick.

Two of the Algerians’ 11 goals this season have been the first of the game, including last week’s winner at Bournemouth. He has an unbelievable record against Watford, too, scoring in his last six appearances against them.

Adam Drury

Chelsea v Wolves: Pedro {ODDS:387615698:9/2}

Chelsea have scored the first goal in 10 of their 14 home Premier League games this season and have won their last two league matches at Stamford Bridge to nil.

It makes sense to go with one of Maurizio Sarri’s players here, then, and Pedro looks a decent option.

The Spaniard opened the scoring in two of Chelsea’s last three home matches in the top flight, and against Dynamo Kiev in midweek.

Jack Green

Arsenal v Manchester United: Aaron Ramsey {ODDS:387616177:9/1}

Arsenal have taken the lead in seven of their last eight matches at the Emirates. The only exception was against United in the FA Cup, but I think the injuries to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side makes a Gunners goal more likely.

Alexandre Lacazette is likely to start the game, as he is suspended for his side’s Europa League trip to Rennes, which means Aaron Ramsey should play from the off, too.

The Welshman is a decent outside bet to open the scoring, having done so against Spurs last weekend.
