You’d have to go all the way back to Oct. 3 to find a game when Leicester City garnered three-plus cards in a Premier League game. And you’d have to go back even further to Sept. 25 to find that number for Chelsea.

These aren’t teams that send caution to the wind and get stuck into every single challenge with intensity, but rather clubs that aim to play quality football, remain in their shape and limit reckless moments.

For the Foxes, that Oct. 3 meeting with Crystal Palace also serves as the last time they would have engaged in an EPL game that went over a total of 3.5 cards. For the Blues, the same can’t be said, but in their prior two games they held 70-plus percent of the possession, leading to situations where weaker opposition had to concede tactical fouls at times.

Leicester will look to take the initiative in this home match, and whether the Foxes get off to a good start or fall behind early, they almost certainly won’t fall into a shell.

Go with the under in this card prop.

Liverpool vs. Arsenal

The Pick Corner Spread — Arsenal +3 (+135)

At times, corners can be random. Sometimes, they reflect a game in which one side dominated the ball and generated chances in the opposing team’s third of the pitch, and sometimes corners occur randomly.

However, if you abide by the idea that corners can both be extremely random at times and can also reflect the flow of a game at times, there’s value in backing Arsenal against the corner spread.

From the first lens, getting a team at +135 to have two fewer corners than its opponent (with a push an option as well) is a good opportunity. We’re not talking about a side that is going to just hunker down and allow Liverpool to control the ball for a majority of the game.

Sure, Arsenal will likely show a more defensive shape than in games past, but it’s not going to come out as if it were Burnley.

Arsenal has won the corner battle in two of its past three games, and Liverpool has won the corner battle in just one of three. Getting Arsenal at this number and price offers some very nice value.

Manchester City vs. Everton

The Pick Manchester City — Over 2.5 Goals (-113)

When Everton and Manchester City take the field, there is typically only one outcome. The Cityzens have won eight in a row against the Toffees, and there is no reason to believe that won’t be the case again.

Aside from a dreadful performance against Crystal Palace in which City dropped three of the four points it has dropped at home this year, Pep Guardiola’s side has been lethal at home. City has won six of eight home games across all competitions this year, and it has scored an average of 3.5 goals across those matches.

While City is putting up those numbers in addition to a 2.27 xG/game clip, Everton has conceded eight goals in five road games. However, the Toffees are conceding 1.5 xGA/game on the road and City has the potential to push Everton back towards its expected number of goals conceded.

In a tight title race where every home game is a near must-win, look for City to come out of the gates firing and blow open this contest in the end.
