Chelsea vs Brighton to Produce Plenty of Goals
Chelsea will kick off December by hosting Brighton Hove & Albion, ending the previous month on a sour note at St. James’ Park. Despite suffering various absences, Newcastle opened the scoring within a quarter-hour via Alexander Isak and ended up winning the match 4-1.
If there’s one thing that’s predictable about Chelsea’s form right now, it’s high-scoring matches. If you’re planning to bet on Premier League, you should put your money on over 3 goals here.
Apart from their loss to Newcastle, Chelsea has been banging in the goals as of late, starting October with a 2-0 win against Fulham before beating Burnley 4-1. They returned from the break with a 2-2 draw to Arsenal before falling 2-0 against Brentford. They beat Tottenham 4-0, ending their unbeaten run, and drew 4-4 to Manchester City courtesy of a last-minute penalty goal from Cole Palmer.
Our sportsbook has Over 3 goals priced at -118. We’ll take those odds – both teams have been struggling to keep clean sheets, and while both teams to score is a surefire addition to your soccer picks and parlays if you’re looking for easy money, going for a high-scoring result is the smarter option for a bigger profit.
Brighton has scored and conceded in 17 straight matches, the first team to do so in England’s top-flight since Manchester United 1959-60. They have conceded 23 goals after 13 Premier League matches, their worst defensive record in 21 years.

Bet Liverpool to Beat Fulham
It has been an impressive start to the season for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, who sit third in the table, level on 28 points with Aston Villa, one point behind Manchester City and two behind Arsenal.
They’ll be facing off against a Fulham side that took the lead twice at Craven Cottage only to concede shortly after to Wolves, but that managed to come away with a 3-2 win via a last-second penalty from Willian.
Fulham’s last clean sheet came on Septe. 23 in a 0-0 draw to Crystal Palace, and Premier League betting fanatics can rest assured that their drought won’t end any time soon against a Liverpool side that returned from the break with a 1-1 draw to Manchester City.
Jurgen Klopp’s side boasts one of the finest attacks in England, with an astonishing 28 goals in 13 matches – only Newcastle (31) and Aston Villa (31) have found the back of the net with greater regularity.
Mohamed Salah is in fine form, with the Egyptian forward grabbing a brace in their recent 3-0 defeat to Brentford, and I’m expecting him to be a menace against a Fulham backline that has let in 22 goals so far.
Liverpool can hurt you in so many different ways as a team, and as City proved, even if you manage to shut down Salah, Diogo Jota, Darwin Nunez and Luis Diaz, you still have to deal with the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Dominik Szoboszlai and their world-class ball striking ability from long range.
This Liverpool side has attacking weapons in just about every area, and I’m expecting them to find a way past Fulham.
