After the craziest sports year of my lifetime, Thanksgiving weekend is set to be as chock full of action as it ever was, as college basketball, college football, the NFL, and European soccer are all going down this weekend.
Yes, this is a weekend for American football, but there’s still plenty of money to be made on the other side of the pond, so let’s dive into the picks.
Liverpool -1 vs Brighton: Saturday, November 28 at 7:30 a.m.
Following the Reds’ decisive victory of Leicester City last week, Jurgen Klopp wasted no time taking the offensive again the fixture congestion, suggesting that they will be heading into this weekend’s game against Brighton “shaking”.
And while that may be true, the simple fact remains that, outside of Bayern Munich, Liverpool are perhaps the best team in the world right now.
With world-class midfield Thiago set to rejoin the starting lineup and Diogo Jota scoring goals for fun, I think the Reds will have enough here to sweep aside Brighton, who have just one win in their last five Premier League matches.
Manchester City -2 vs Burnley: Saturday, November 28 at 10 a.m.
Put simply: Man City simply isn’t right this year. In the midst of their worst start under Pep Guardiola, City currently sit in 13th place with just 12 points and 10 goals after nine games.
But City, regardless of their form, historically DOMINATE Burnley, having defeated Burnley in six straight matchups and outscoring Sean Dyche’s men by a score of 23-1. If City can’t smash Burnley here, their season is likely cooked, so look for a performance from the Citizens.
Southampton +1/2 vs Manchester United: Sunday, November 29 at 9 a.m.
I could not care less how Manchester United looked during the week as this is what they’ve seemingly been doing this year: performing in the Champions League while looking wildly average in the Premier League. Combine that with Southampton’s impressive form — they currently sit fifth in the table with 17 points, four more than Manchester united — and I think the Saints have enough here to nick at least a point off Man United.
