5 Premier League bets for you to consider this weekend

We are finally tipping West Brom instead of going against them.

CONGRATULATIONS! YOU HAVE made it all the way to Saturday, which means the Premier League is tantalisingly close to returning for another weekend. We have spent the last seven days mapping out scenarios using our state of the art supercomputer to bring you five bets to ponder before the games kick-off tomorrow.

Last week, we did pretty well… so that probably means we are due for a fall but regardless, these bets are absolutely guaranteed to come through provided a large number of variables fall into place.

Arsenal -1 vs Burnley and Chelsea -1 vs QPR – 3/2

Two good teams at home to two bottom-feeders. I don’t think this one requires much of an explanation.

Both teams to score in Newcastle vs Liverpool and game to be a draw – 10/3

Liverpool would have been targeting this game as an easy win a few weeks ago but Newcastle have gone on a nice run over the last few weeks and have won three in a row. Both teams have only kept two clean sheets each this season and given Newcastle’s recent renaissance, they could take points off Liverpool.

West Brom HT/FT away to Leicester – 4/1

Since their epic win against Man United, Leicester haven’t gotten another league victory in their last four games. West Brom come into the game in pretty good form – they were clinical against Man United and showed great spirit to battle back against Crystal Palace last weekend. The Baggies have only lost one of their last five – a close defeat at Anfield – and at 4/1, you are getting good odds for them against a struggling Leicester side.

Under 1.5 goals in Stoke vs West Ham – 11/5

West Ham have had some epic results recently but Stoke is a tough place to travel to and there have been under 1.5 goals in three of their four home games so far. We think the Potters could frustrate the visitors this weekend.

Man City (at home to Man United), Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool to win/draw and Everton (home to Swansea) to win/draw – 3/1

3/1 is pretty poor odds on a fivefold… but this one looks pretty solid, right?
