We fancy Alan Pardew’s smugness to continue for another week.

ANOTHER WEEKEND OF Premier League action is upon us and we have 5 more bets for you to take a look at before the game’s kick-off tomorrow. We’ve gone into our laboratory, tweaked various theorems and here are the results.

As always, these bets are absolutely guaranteed to come through provided a large number of variables fall into place.

Newcastle to win/draw away to West Ham – 4/6

Newcastle have won their last five and West Ham are winless in three so the visitors are obviously the form team this weekend. West Ham had some great early season home results – wins over Liverpool and Man City – but recently those victories have looked like exceptions rather than indicators of permanent change

Pardew’s side are playing well and are more than capable of picking up at least a point at Upton Park.

Under 2.5 goals in Southampton vs Man City – evens

This is Southampton’s biggest test of the season so far and they come into this one on a short week after playing at Villa Park on Monday. There have been less than 2.5 goals in five of Southampton’s last six games and while both teams have scored a lot of goals they have very stingy defences too and when top teams play, the games are rarely very open.

Both teams to score and game to be a draw in Spurs vs Everton – 16/5

Both teams concede a lot of goals and they also play in exciting and unpredictable games that seem to swing back and forth throughout. They both played in the Europa League last night too, so there will be a lot of tired legs out there.

Rickie Lambert to score and Liverpool to win – 21/10

With two goals in two games, Lambert is now officially Liverpool’s form striker this season (sorry, Liverpool fans). Stoke have been only slightly less abject than Liverpool this year, and are coming off a home loss to Burnley. In a battle of two teams struggling for form, home advantage might just swing it.

Chelsea to win away to Sunderland, Man United to win at home to Hull, Man City to win/draw and Arsenal to win away to West Brom – 7/2

Happy fourfold, everyone!
