Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus leads the way in our trio of ‘hot picks’ for this Saturday’s ‘Winner takes £125’ contest on Sportito.
With doubts over Sergio Aguero’s fitness for the run in, Pep Guardiola will turn to the Brazilian, who turned 20 during his recent injury-enforced break, to safeguard City’s top four status.
Since making the move to Manchester in January, Jesus has racked up 13.75, 23.25 and 14.25 points from his three starts at an average return of 17.1 per match. Sam Allardyce’s Crystal Palace will be set up to frustrate, but Jesus should prove too explosive for Big Sam’s patched up rear-guard.
Our second hot pick for Saturday’s £4.00 entry contest goes to in-form defender Harry Maguire. The former Sheffield United defender is said to be interesting Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino after heading up Hull’s unexpected bid for survival under Marco Silva.
Since struggling in a 4-0 defeat at Everton in March, Maguire has returned scores of 5.25, 16.03, 16.25, 6.25 and 4.25 in the last five matches, with a 9.61-point average boosted by goalscoring displays in his side’s crucial victories against Middlesbrough and Stoke City.
The third man you need in your side for this £500 guaranteed contest, open to 160 players on Sportito, is Leicester City’s rejuvenated Jamie Vardy. It is likely that you will add the fantasy football gift that is Joshua King to your final XI, but Jesus and Vardy should be his strike partners.
With at least a goal or an assist in eight of his last nine matches, Vardy has found 2015/16 form under new manager Craig Shakespeare. On Sportito, that equates to six double digit returns in nine matches, including 25.25 for a brace against Liverpool and 12.25 for last week’s winner at the Hawthorns, which effectively secured the Foxes’ Premier League position after a rocky title defence.
