I've been writing about the NFL and a host of other sports for the UK's top daily betting paper the Racing Post for more than 20 years. An incurable Browns fan (1-31 survivor), I also specialise in all kinds of motorsport betting including F1, MotoGP, IndyCar and NASCAR.

The English Premier League has begun in scintillating fashion this season and Saturday’s showdown between EPL title contenders Liverpool and Chelsea is not to be missed. Both teams have won their first two games of the season. Liverpool beat Norwich and Burnley without allowing a goal, while Champions League winners Chelsea started out with a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace and then overcame London rival Arsenal 2-0 on the road last week.

That Chelsea win at the Emirates Stadium cashed our +778 odds same game parlay, so let’s try to repeat the feat.

We have put together another same game parlay for Saturday’s 12.30pm ET kickoff that pays over 12/1 with FanDuel Sportsbook. Let’s break it down.

You can also read our same game parlay for Manchester City vs Arsenal earlier on Saturday.

Chelsea ML (+190)

Romelu Lukaku anytime scorer (+145)

Under 2.5 goals (-120)

Parlay odds: +1201

Let’s go through each of the legs in more detail, but make sure you also check out the rest of our soccer predictions for all the EPL and MLS games this weekend.

Chelsea ML (+190)

Thomas Tuchel proved that he can get his tactics right on even the biggest occasion when he steered Chelsea to a Champions League win so soon after taking charge last season, and he will have his team well-prepared for the trip to Anfield. The German masterminded three wins over Manchester City last year, and his team also emerged from this fixture last season with a 1-0 win over the Reds. He has even better attacking options available this time after the Blues signed Belgian star striker Romelu Lukaku.

Any win at Liverpool is tough, so unlike last week we are taking Chelsea on the money line rather than the spread.

Romelu Lukaku anytime scorer (+145)

Lukaku made a perfect start to his second spell with Chelsea; he was with the club from 2011 to 2014, but spent most of his time on loan at West Brom and Everton. He could not have started any better as he scored the first goal at Arsenal last week, but more importantly he looked to fit into his new side perfectly. Lukaku, who also played for Manchester United and Inter before returning to Chelsea this summer, looks well suited to testing the solidity of Liverpool’s high defensive line.

The 28-year-old scored 42 goals in 58 games for Inter and Belgium last season, and his pace and power will prove a far greater threat to Liverpool than either of their first two opponents have.

Under 2.5 goals (-120)

Goals do not always flow freely when Premier League giants clash and neither side will want to be too open in the early stages. Since Tuchel arrived at Stamford Bridge, 15 of Chelsea’s 22 EPL games have produced under 2.5 goals and only two of those contests featured more than three.
