Last week’s value plays went 1-2 but still up +12.30 units on the season. This week the first play will be on Southampton +103 at Middlesbrough. At the time of publication, Middlesbrough were getting nearly 60% of tickets despite being big underdogs. Despite public support, they’ve moved from +277 to +291, and this team has already officially been relegated. Just 1/3 of tickets are on Southampton but there’s been line movement toward them since opening (opened +112, now +103 at Pinnacle). Southampton are actually the odds-on favorite at some sportsbooks, so this is a great chance to take the contrarian favorite on Southampton +103.
The other value play will be a moneyline parlay on Tottenham -139 (vs. Man United) and Man City -402 (vs. Leicester), which pays out +115. Both of these moneylines are getting <50% of tickets despite big favorites, which means I’m fading the trendy dogs again (Man United and Leicester). Both teams are playing at home, a trend that has been highly successful this season.
Most Lopsided Around Market: 86% on Bournemouth (-108) vs. Burnley
Biggest Line Moves at Pinnacle: Hull (+293 to +269) at Crystal Palace, Sunderland (+361 to +300) vs. Swansea
Value Plays (+12.30 units): Southampton +103 at Middlesbrough, Man City/Tottenham Parlay +115
