The absence of Diego Costa may have dampened the odds down on our anytime goalscorer accumulator last weekend, but with Defoe and Giroud both netting we still came away with a healthy £35.34 profit. Unfortunately, Sunderland cost us the Premier League accumulator, but an overall profit of £25.34 is a good start.
The best bet this weekend is our Premier League Accumulator at 7.97/1 with bet365.
· Bournemouth to win (vs Watford)
· West Brom to win (vs Sunderland)
· Everton 0.0 Asian handicap (vs Crystal Palace)
· Tottenham win or draw double chance (vs Manchester City)
Bournemouth vs Watford: Bournemouth may not be in the best of shape at the moment, but the difficult run of fixtures they have had has to be taken into account. At home, the Cherries are looking very good, with five of their last nine home league games ending in victory with Eddie Howe’s men playing a Watford side who have lost five on the bounce away from home.
West Brom vs Sunderland: The bookies are consistently undervaluing a surprisingly good West Brom side this season, and this week is no different. The Baggies have won four of their last five home league games and are facing a Sunderland side who have lost seven of their last eight on the road in the Premier League.
Crystal Palace vs Everton: Sam Allardyce’s appointment at Selhurst Park doesn’t seem to have paid off, as is evident by their 3-0 drubbing at West Ham last weekend. They have now lost five of their last seven league games and six of their last seven at home. Everton, on the other hand, have won four of their last six league matches and will be high on confidence after their 4-0 thrashing of Manchester City.
Manchester City vs Tottenham: City were on the end of a humbling defeat away to Everton last weekend, and that is bound to have been a blow to their confidence. They have only won three of their last seven home games and are facing a Tottenham side who have now won seven matches on the bounce. Spurs were the side who ended their perfect start to the campaign back in October.
A new addition this week is our Premier League banker, which is our selection of the weekend’s highest value single bet. As mentioned above the Baggies have been consistently undervalued by the bookies this season, and that works very nicely in our favour.
This weekend Tony Pulis’ side face the dreadfully out of form Sunderland at The Hawthorns. They have won six of their last 11 in the Premier League and that includes matches against Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal, and Spurs. At home, they have won four of their last five games too.
At the other end of the pitch will be a Sunderland side who lost 3-1 at home to Stoke last weekend, and away from home they have lost seven of their last eight league games, picking up four points from a possible 30. This makes odds of 8/11 for a home win look incredibly good value.
If you’re after the potential for bigger returns here I’d recommend a 3-1 correct score prediction at 16/1 as well. The hosts have won three of their last four home league matches 3-1, and for all of Sunderland’s faults they do usually bag a goal through Jermain Defoe.
