Saturday’s Premier League soccer card is made up of just 5 matches but it’s a handful of games packed with plenty of quality and potential drama.

Erling Haaland will hope to continue his sensational scoring streak for Manchester City against Southampton, Chelsea take on managerless Wolves and new Brighton head coach Roberto De Zerbi and Tottenham chief Antonio Conte will bring some Italian style to the technical areas at the Amex Stadium.

We have picked out a 4-game parlay to hopefully see you successfully through the Saturday slate, that pays +782 odds with FanDuel Sportsbook.

Newcastle ML (-125)

Erling Haaland anytime goalscorer (-250)

Chelsea ML 1st half (-120)

Brighton vs Tottenham over 2.5 goals (-110)

Parlay odds: +782

Newcastle ML over Brentford (-125), 10:00 am ET

Newcastle produced a stunning performance last Saturday against one West London team and can repeat the feat against another on Saturday. Last week’s 4-1 road win at Fulham was classy from Eddie Howe’s side, who are looking more and more like the team who will finish the closest to the EPL’s famed ‘Big Six’.

To do that, they’ll need to keep on winning and can see off Fulham’s neighbors Brentford, who are the visitors to Newcastle. Brentford are having a steady season but haven’t won on the road in the league yet this season and that run will likely continue at St. James’s Park.

Manchester City vs Southampton: Erling Haaland to score (-250), 10:00 am ET

The stats don’t lie. Erling Haaland has featured in 11 EPL and Champions League games for Manchester City since his summer move from Dortmund and has found the net in 10 of them, scoring 19 times. These numbers are simply ridiculous.

He got 2 more against Copenhagen in the Champions League on Wednesday and was taken off at half-time to be fresh for Southampton. Even at short odds, this play is worth adding to this EPL parlay.

Chelsea ML 1st half over Wolves (-120), 10:00 am ET

Graham Potter to Chelsea looked a good fit once the club’s US owner Todd Boehly had fired Thomas Tuchel, and the Blues’ new head coach has to think a hat-trick of wins is likely.

Chelsea came back to win 2-1 at Crystal Palace last weekend, crushed Milan 3-0 in the Champions League on Wednesday and can now start hot against Wolves, who themselves are looking for a new coach after Bruno Lage was fired last weekend.

Wolves’ issue last season was they didn’t score enough goals and this season they still can’t find the net. They have scored 3 goals all season, which is the lowest in the Premier League. If Chelsea get off to another fast start, it’s hard to see Wolves responding before the half-time whistle, if at all.

Brighton vs Tottenham over 2.5 goals (-110), 12:30 pm ET

It was a baptism of fire for new Brighton coach Roberto De Zerbi last weekend with a trip to mighty Liverpool – and it was a test he passed. The Seagulls didn’t win but they secured an impressive 3-3 tie, and Spurs will know they face a stiff test at the Amex Stadium.

Tottenham are licking their own wounds after losing 3-1 at bitter rivals Arsenal last weekend, another game featuring plenty of goals. Their matches are averaging 3.6 goals per game so these positive sides should be able to find the net 3 times between them in what should be an entertaining shootout.
