Man City v West Brom (Sat, 12:45, BT Sport 1)
Time of 1st Goal 24-90 Minutes @ 10/11 – BET NOW
City faced a midweek trip to Barcelona so will head into this match with some tired legs plus they have to break down a West Brom side who have managed a clean sheet in five of their last seven outings. City have scored in the opening 24 minutes in just one of their last 13 matches.
Aston Villa v Swansea
Swansea To Win @ 23/10 – BET NOW
Time Sherwood has got Villa moving in the right direction but the wins they’ve had of late have been against sides well below Swansea in the table. Swansea have won four of their last nine away matches so look good value at 23/10.
Newcastle v Arsenal
Newcastle +0.5 Asian Handicap @ 36/25 – BET NOW
Arsenal look a touch short at 7/10 after going full strength in Monaco during the week. Newcastle have to come to the point in their season where they have nothing to play for but I still think they have more of a chance of avoiding defeat than the odds suggest.
Southampton v Burnley
Burnley +0.5 Asian Handicap @ 37/20 – BET NOW
Burnley head into this match off the back of a 1-0 win over Man City and have tended to put in a decent performance against the better sides this season. Saints have been hit and miss of late so back Burnley to avoid defeat.
Stoke v Crystal Palace
Both Teams To Score @ 21/20 – BET NOW
This is far from the weekend’s most glamorous clash but there’s recent to suspect there’ll be goals at the Britannia. This has landed in nine of Stoke’s home matches this term and five of Palace’s last six home and away.
Tottenham v Leicester
Both Teams To Score @ 17/20 – BET NOW
I was hoping this selection would be a bigger price but there’s still reason to suggest both teams will net/ Leicester have scored at Arsenal, Man Utd, Everton and Liverpool this season but rarely do they keep their opponents at bay on the road.
West Ham v Sunderland (Sat, 17:30, Sky Sports 1)
Jermaine Defoe Anytime Scorer @ 14/5 – BET NOW
With Dick Advocaat now at the helm I think Sunderland have a good chance of upsetting the odds against out of form West Ham but I equally like odds of almost 3/1 on Jermaine Defoe finding the net against his old side.
Liverpool v Man Utd (Sun, 13:30, Sky Sports 1)
Under 2.5 Goals @ 1.96 – BET NOW
Six of Liverpool’s last seven matches have gone under 2.5 goals, mostly due to their much improved defence while United themselves have kept three clean sheets in four matches.
Hull v Chelsea (Sun, 16:00, Sky Sports 1)
Hull +0.5 Asian Handicap @ 67/40 – BET NOW
The side in 15th take on the side in 1st so this looks a daft selection on paper but Chelsea have won just two of their last six matches in all competitions so should be taken on when they face a Hull side scrapping for their Premier League lives.
QPR v Everton (Sun, 16:00)
Both Teams To Score @ 10/11 – BET NOW
I was tempted to back the home side here but they seem to keep finding ways to lose in recent weeks. They generally find the net though so both teams to score looks the value in this clash.
