Crystal Palace v QPR

QPR4/1BetVictor, Coral

QPR have lost 16 of their last 18 league games on the road, so it’s no wonder the Eagles are odds on to collect all three points at Selhurst Park.

This game looks certain to contain goals – the Eagles have conceded in their last 10 consecutive games at Selhurst Park, while no side has conceded more shots on target than Rangers (160) or goals away from home (29). So we strongly suggest backing both sides to score 10/11 with Coral or Betfred, while ‘Over 2.5 Goals’ at 21/20 with BetVictor also looks too big.

Finally, we suggest backing the 2-1 Palace victory with Betfred at 8/1 – not only is it the best industry price, but that firm will refund stakes should the game end 1-1.

Arsenal v West Ham

West Ham8/1Bet365, Betfred, BetVictorCoral

If Arsenal were to win here it would be eight consecutive home league victories, and the Gunners do have an excellent record against the Hammers – Arsene Wenger’s side have won 11 of their last 13 matches against West Ham, drawing the other two.

Olivier Giroud is in scintillating goal scoring form and he simply has to be backed to score the first goal at a best priced 15/4 with Bet365. Theo Walcott also boasts an excellent record against the Hammers having scored in five of his last four league games against them. You can beck him to score first each way at 6/1 with SkyBet.

Finally, as West Ham have scored first in four of their last five encounters against Arsenal, we suggest a sneaky punt on West Ham to score first and not to win at 13/5 with Paddy Power.

Leicester v Hull

The Foxes are rock bottom of the Premier League, while Hull have managed to move up the table into 15th spot.

Leicester have only won twice in front of their home fans this season, but they concede relatively few goals – just 17 in 12 games. Hull meanwhile find it difficult to score away from home and have only managed 11 in 14 games so far this season. We can see this game being a low scoring affair and our first recommended bet is to be with the ‘Under 2.5 Goals’ option at 13/20 with BetVictor, while we also like the look of the 1-1 draw with William Hill at 6/1 – especially as that firm will refund losing bets if the game ends 0-0 (as a free bet up to £50).

Finally, Hull’s Dame N’Doye has scored in all three of his starts for Hull and can be backed at 7/1 with Bet365 to score first.

Sunderland v Aston Villa

Aston Villa5/2BetVictor

Aston Villa just can’t score goals away from home – a meagre four goals away from Villa Park has been one of the reasons why they languish in 17th position in the league. Sunderland though are not much better at home with just 12 goals in 14 games at the Stadium of Light – the lowest return of any Premier League side playing in front of their own fans. ‘Under 2.5 Goals’ looks a steal at 3/5 with BetVictor, while backing a few split stakes low scoring Sunderland victories may also return dividends. You can back Sunderland 1-0 (11/2 with William Hill) and 2-0 (10/1 with William Hill) knowing that if the game does end 0-0 you’ll get your money back due to Hills ‘Score Bore’ promotion.

We also like the look of a red card being brandished in this important relegation battle. No less than seven have been handed out in the last 12 games between these two, and Villa’s six red cards this season is the most of any side in the league – last year Sunderland received seven. Take Unibet’s 7/2 on another red card here.

West Brom v Stoke

Stoke12/5Bet365, BetfredBetVictor

Tony Pullis has once again turned a previously poor defence into a robust one – Stoke have managed to produce five clean sheets in their last six home games and we expect them to get another one here – take Ladbrokes 31/20 on that happening.

Saido Berahino has scored three goals in his last four league matches and he should be backed here to score the first goal at 11/2 with Paddy Power. We also suggest a small wager on two scorecasts here, as we can’t see a high scoring game. Let’s take Berahino to score first and West Brom to win 1-0 (22/1 with BetVictor) and 2-0 (40/1 with BetVictor).

Finally, take the 1-0 victory at best odds of 15/2 with Bet365, who also refund losing Correct Score bets on games that finish 0-0.

Burnley v Man City

No side has a better record away from home than Man City this season with just two losses, and 15 goals conceded and there will be many who will be piling in to odds of 9/20 for them to beat Burnley on Saturday.

Goals are almost certain here – 45 have been scored in just nine matches between these two in all competitions and we suggest backing ‘Over 3.5 Goals’ here at 13/8 with BetVictor or Paddy Power, as well as pressing on some high scoring City wins. Take the 3-1 City win at 11/1 with Bet365, as well as the 4-1 City victory at 21/1 with BetVictor.

Chelsea v Southampton

Southampton11/2Generally

Chelsea are a short price to bounce back from their Champions League exit at the hands of PSG midweek at Stamford Bridge.

Many will see the 11/2 available on the Saints as value, but Southampton have been losing momentum in recent weeks and are slowly dropping down the league table. They have only won one of their last four games and it may be the long hard season is taking its toll, as many of the same players have played most of their matches. And we could see a positive reaction here from the Blues to a lacklustre display against 10 man PSG.

The Blues also have an excellent record against Southampton – they have lost just one of their last 11 games against them and we can see them dominating here from start to finish. With that in mind let’s take them to be winning at both HT & FT at a best price of 6/4 with Betfred, while we also like the price on Jose Mourinho’s side to keep a clean sheet here at 10/11 with Bet365 – something they have done on 16 occasions in their last 21 home matches.

Everton v Newcastle

Newcastle4/1BetVictor

Bizarrely, Everton’s home form in Europe is so much better than in the Premier League where they have managed just four wins all season. But the bookies still make them odds on to win here.

Newcastle have won just three games away from home all season – and they have conceded 11 goals on their travels in just their last five games. We strongly fancy Everton here and perhaps use this game as a springboard to draw away from the relegation battle.

Romelu Lukaku is in top form at present – he played well on Thursday night as well as scoring that all important penalty and he has scored four goals in five games against Newcastle. He simply must be backed to score first at 9/2 with William Hill (especially as they refund losing Correct Score stakes if your player scores second).

We also suggest backing Steven Naismith – who also scored midweek – to score first at 7/1 with Paddy Power, each way.

Finally, with Everton struggling to keep a clean sheet at present (just three clean sheets in their last 18 league matches) we also recommend backing the both teams to score at 10/11 with Betfred.

Man United v Spurs

Spurs10/3Bet365Coral

Man Utd are a shade of odds-on to beat Spurs at Old Trafford, despite the fact that Tottenham have not lost to United in their last five games – and they have recently been very tight in defence away from home.

We strongly recommend being with Spurs here – our play is to back them in the ‘Draw No Bet’ market at 2/1 with Bet365 or Paddy Power, as well as the Asian Handicap (+0.5) market at Evens with Bet365 – so you win if Spurs draw or win.

Harry Kane remains in top form, he has now scored in his last six away games and he simply must be backed to score first here 6/1 with William Hill (money back on losing bets if he scores the second goal).

Liverpool would top the league table if it were made up of only the last 10 games – they have won eight and lost none scoring 20 goals and conceding just six.

Put simply, Brendan Rodgers side are on fire and must be followed until beaten in our view. Rodgers, who managed the Swans before moving to Anfield, has got his team purring  since changing his formation to play with three centre backs and the Reds have now kept six clean sheets in their last eight games (five in their last five games on the road) and we can see another one coming here (13/8 with Coral).

Let’s take Liverpool to win 1-0 (13/2 generally) and 2-0 (19/2 with BetVictor), plus Daniel Sturridge – who has scored four goals in his last three league games against Swansea – scoring the first goal of the game (9/2 with William Hill).
