Check out our weekly Google Hangout Over/Under 2.5 Total Goals live betting show every Thursday with tipsters going head to head to see who has the best predictions. Here are Lee Phelps' 10 picks and reasons why.

Every week Natalie Rydstrom and a few of SBR contributors go head-to-head on a Google Hangout to see who can make the most correct over / under 2.5 goals soccer picks in the Premier League.

Here are my predictions and reasons why.


West Bromwich Albion vs Arsenal
The Gunners return from a Champions League win to nil against Dortmund and I expect them to back up that defensive performance with another clean sheet against the Baggies.

Brom average four shots on target per game, but the man who has scored six of their nine home games, Saido Berahino faces court over a drink driving arrest, so may be off his game.

Soccer Pick: Under 2.5


Burnley vs Aston Villa
We have two of the worst attacking teams in the Premier League here as well two sides who are relegation threatened. Burnley average three shots on target every home game, while Villa have managed even less on their travels and have only scored two away goals in six.

Soccer Pick: Under 2.5


Liverpool vs Stoke
Stoke have scored two at Tottenham, two at QPR and one at Manchester City this season and seem happier when the home side attacks them. Liverpool will attack, but have they got the strike power to score one of their average 5 shots on target? I think both will score and we will have a winner, I’m just not sure who!

Soccer Pick: Over 2.5


Manchester United vs Hull City
We all know Manchester United have fantastic attacking talent and a brittle back line and I think with the confidence of beating Arsenal and being fourth, they will go for Hull. That will suit former United man Steve Bruce and his team and they will counter and score once.

Soccer Pick: Over 2.5


QPR vs Leicester
Leicester have only scored one goal away from home all season, so I expect them to set up very solid and play for a point trying to keep Rangers out. Harry Redknapp’s men are one of the most attacking home teams in the division, but struggle to find the guile to break the Foxes down.

Soccer Pick: Under 2.5


Swansea vs Crystal Palace
There have been three or more goals in two thirds of Palace’s away games this season, they are happy to allow the opposition to have possession and use their pace to counterattack.

Swansea of course love keeping the ball and with Bony and Gomis have genuine goal scorers.

Soccer Pick: Over 2.5 at 5Dimes


West Ham United vs Newcastle
I expect the Hammers to attack their North Eastern visitors from the off, with a former Magpies’ manager in charge keen on a little revenge. Newcastle are on a great run and must be brimming with confidence. I see both teams scoring and West Ham winning 2-1.

Soccer Pick: Over 2.5 on the soccer odds.


Sunderland vs Chelsea
Chelsea are purring at the moment. Their first half performance last weekend was fantastic and they won 5-0 at Schalke in the Champions League. Sunderland are a bit of a bogey team having ended Jose Mourhino’s amazing unbeaten home run as Chelsea boss and knocked them out of the League Cup last season. The game at the Stadium of Light last time was 2-3 and I see Chelsea scoring three again here.

Soccer Pick: Over 2.5


Southampton vs Manchester City
What a great result for City and an amazing hat-trick performance from Sergio Aguero beating Bayern Munich 3-2. Last year they did the same and came back to the Premier League to beat Arsenal 6-3. I expect them to beat Southampton here, but not without a struggle.

Soccer Pick: Over 2.5


Tottenham Hotspur vs Everton
Both sides are coming off a Thursday night Europa League match, with Everton travelling to Germany and back. I see a tight game here with a draw the end result.

Soccer Pick: Under 2.5
