5 Premier League bets for you to consider this week

We are tipping Stevie G to get over last May’s slip tomorrow.

Will Gerrard erase memories of last year's slip tomorrow (if that is even possible)?

THESCORE.IE GOT IT wrong last week, we can admit that. So like a WWII dictator, we initiated a purge on everyone responsible and hired a new brain trust from the Web Summit to create some tip-top betting equations in order to bring you five bets to consider ahead of this weekend’s games.

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

Steven Gerrard to score anytime in Liverpool vs Chelsea – 7/2

The slip has been hanging over Gerrard since last May and he has made a career out of scoring in big games.

Granted, he is having a very poor season and Rodgers might even leave him out (although that is unlikely) but given he is on penalty duty too, 7/2 isn’t a bad price for Stevie G to find the net.

Man City over 2.5 goals away to QPR – 6/4

Man City’s performances have been putrid as of late but there is no better team to face when you are in poor form than QPR. They have conceded more league goals than any other team and even made Liverpool’s blunt attack look potent.

And while City have been bad, they still boast the third best attack in the league.

West Brom vs Newcastle to draw – 9/4

Alan Pardew looked a certainty to be fired after Newcastle lost to Stoke a few weeks back but four wins in a row has Newcastle at the top of the form table. Likewise, West Brom have been on a good run of late and Alan Irvine’s side played good football against Man United, Crystal Palace and Leicester.

If Newcastle were home you might give them an edge but both sides look evenly matched at the Hawthorns so 9/4 looks like good odds for the draw.

Man United to win at home to Palace and both teams to score – 8/5

United have only kept two clean sheets and Crystal Palace have only failed to score in two of their games so far. A lot was made this week of the fact that David Moyes had more points than Louis van Gaal at the same stage last season but with Wayne Rooney having an extra week to settle back in, a home win against a side that has lost three of their last four is pretty likely.

Man United to win, Man City to win, Southampton to win at home to Leicester, Aston Villa +2 away to West Ham and Liverpool to win/draw – 5/1

Another week, another fivefold…
