Premier League Tips: Palace, Baggies & Red Devils Look Value

It’s unusual to have as many as six Premier League matches on a Saturday these days, especially with three of them kicking off at 3pm so plenty to look forward to.

Everton vs Newcastle

The action starts at Goodison Park where Everton host Newcastle who can’t buy a win.

The Toon are now nine without a victory in the Premier League and although early kick-offs are to be avoided at all cost it’s hard to make a case for anything other than a home win at 11/20.

Newcastle have scored just two in their last nine so it could be lower scorer.

  • Everton to win & Under 4 goals 23/20

Crystal Palace v Wolves

Wolves eked out a 0-0 draw against an impotent Chelsea on Wednesday but look a shadow of last year’s outfit. Palace aren’t great form either but 15/8 looks too big for the home win. Although they’ve only picked up 12 points from a possible 30 the points dropped have mostly come against teams in the current top seven, with the exception of Newcastle (0-2) and Brighton (1-1)

Wolves have scored just nine in 10 on the road and have lost their cutting edge so the value lies with Palace.

West Brom v Fulham

It’s likely to be a busy weekend for Sam Allardyce as the transfer window closes but he has the minor inconvenience of a visit from Fulham to contend with on Saturday. This one is a proper six-pointer at the bottom of the table.

The Allardyce-effect needs to kick-in soon for West Brom who have shipped 22 goals in the seven games since his appointment and if they don’t win against fellow strugglers Fulham the alarm bells will be sounding loud and clear. It’s a game that could go either way.

Fulham have been in better form of late with plenty of draws but they not picked up three points since the end of December and don’t deserve to be 13/10 favs here. West Brom can be backed at 1.920 (just above 9/10) on the Asian Handicap with 0.0, +0.5 start.

Manchester City v Sheffield United

Sheffield United pulled off the shock result of the season when they won 2-1 at Old Trafford, surely they couldn’t pull off the same feat at the Etihad at 25/1? No. Man City look untouchable, even with De Buryne and Aguero out.

Cards could be a good angle here. Referee David Coote has one of the highest averages in the league on 3.8 per match, the Blades pick up 2.20 per match and they’re even money to pick up two or more yellows.

Arsenal v Man Utd

Match of the Day is at the Emirates where Manchester United aim to bounce back after that defeat in midweek.

Arsenal‘s recent revival has eased the pressure on Mikel Arteta but their six games unbeaten in the Premier League have come against teams that are currently below them in the league, with the exception of Chelsea with whom they’re level on points.

A United side with a point to prove could expose the Gunners’ soft underbelly at 29/20 or play it a bit safer with 11/10 on the Red Devils to score 2 or more.

  • Man Utd to score 2+ Goals

Southampton v Aston Villa

This should be an entertaining affair at St Mary’s on Saturday night, with two teams who are good going forward.

Villa have been a joy this season, delivering goals galore and entertainment aplenty. Only Liverpool and Man Utd games average more goals and 11 of their 18 have landed Over 2.5 Goals.

In a season where home advantage hasn’t counted for much the Saints have won half of their matches on their own turf and scored in eight of ten. I can se eboth teams getting on the scoresheet helping us on the way to three or more goals.

  • Over 2.5 Goals
