We were one goal away from cashing our +275 Totals Odds Boost Parlay in Matchday 35. My choice Manchester City To Score Over 2.5 Goals hit when they took a spirited Leeds United side apart 0-4. Brad's pick Over 2.5 Goals in Aston Villa 2-0 Norwich City was so close with a combined xG of 3.12, 30 attempts on goal, nine on target, one hitting the woodwork, and two big chances missed per FotMob.com. Matchday 37 is here, and we are back with an Anytime Goalscorer Parlay the good people at PointsBet Sportsbook have boosted, featuring two of the best goalscorers England have produced in recent memory.

Tottenham vs. Burnley (Sunday, 7 AM EST, Live on USA) | Watford vs. Leicester City (Sunday, 9 AM EST, Live on Peacock)

Parlay link: Harry Kane & Jamie Vardy Both To Score A Goal (Boosted from +245) +300

Why Brad thinks Harry Kane will score:

Harry Kane has been a machine since his return from injury. Even his production this week in the North London derby was something to watch. With his double against Arsenal, he now has 15 goals on the season in 35 matches. Kane is a fun goal scorer to back because not only does he create goals for himself, but he also is excellent in the air and can finish in traffic. It helps that Kane always takes the penalty kick.

With a home match against Burnley, I’d expect the Hotspurs to score at least two goals. They are averaging 2.06 goals per home match against a Burnley side who are conceding 1.50. Both are in important battles. Burnley will likely be playing for the point, but the Spurs cannot afford a draw. Three points are important for their Champions League aspirations. I’m backing the guy who has an npxG of 0.49 and 15 goals on the season.

Why Alex thinks Jamie Vardy will score:

It’s been a tough week for Vardy off the pitch spending most of it supporting his wife Rebekah in court, who is suing Wayne Rooney’s wife Colleen for libel, a case dubbed ‘Wagatha Christie’ by the British media.

On the pitch, Vardy looks back to his best, scoring a brace against Norwich in his first Premier League start since March 3rd. For both goals, the Leicester City club legend timed his runs behind The Canaries backline perfectly and finished the game with seven shots, four on target, 1.32 xG, and two big chances missed per FotMob.com.

Looking at his season stats on FBREF.com, he's Leicester's leading goalscorer with 12, averaging 2.66 shots per 90 minutes, and top of the xG ranks with 8.0 despite only making 22 appearances (17 starts).

This Sunday, he faces relegated Watford, who have nothing left but pride to play for. The Hornets did turn in a spirited performance midweek drawing 0-0 with Everton. They are still the third worse defense conceding 70 goals from 61.8 xGA, and have the worse home record in the league, collecting eight points (2W-2D-14L) and conceding 41 goals from 32.6 xGA.

With Leicester pushing for a top-half finish and Vardy the designated penalty taker, I'm confident he can get his name on the scoresheet for the second game running.
