Oddsmakers think he’ll do pretty damn good.
Pulisic is odds-on favorite to tally at least 10 goals and 10 assists, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
Christian Pulisic Goal and Assist Prop Bets
Here are Christian Pulisic goal props:
|Over 9.5 -134||Over 12.5 +320||Over 15.5 +1600|
|Over 17.5 +5000||Over 19.5 +15000|
In 4 seasons at Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga, Pulisic netted 13 goals (15 total in all competitions). Last season, Pulisic battled injuries and Jadon Sancho for playing time. In 924 minutes, he recorded 4 goals.
Scoring 5 goals, let alone 10, would be unprecedented for Pulisic. He’ll be more featured at Chelsea, is older and more skilled now, and has looked fantastic in preseason. But let’s temper our expectations here.
Also, Pulisic won’t be the featured penalty taker. That will likely fall on Ross Barkley. Not getting those 5-7 opportunities for taking one from the spot make hitting double digits all the less likely.
Here are Christian Pulisic assist props:
|Over 9.5 -223||Over 12.5 +200||Over 15.5 +800|
|Over 17.5 +2500||Over 19.5 +7000|
The most assists Pulisic recorded at BVB was 6…in 2016-17.
However, if Pulisic is hitting the over on either of these, expect it to be on the assists.
What can we expect from Pulisic?
If the preseason is any indication, Pulisic will be just fine at Chelsea. He’ll feature and do well. Expecting 10 and 10 from the 20 year old isn’t realistic. Not this year.
A 7 goal, 11 assist performance is more in line with reality. It would also be a helluva debut season.
