With two Premier League fixtures on Sunday and one on Monday night, punters will have to wait for the final leg of this treble. This weekend’s line-up isn’t quite as ‘super’ as in previous weeks but there are still a few intriguing encounters.
Wolverhampton Wanderers will get Sunday’s action underway at home to Burnley before Marco Silva’s Everton host bottom-of-the-table West Ham United. Looking at those fixtures, goals could be the order of the day.
Monday Night Football will see Brighton & Hove Albion travel to Southampton; not the most glamorous affair on paper admittedly but some football is better than no football. Have a scroll down and check out our 11/2 treble, starting with that Sunday afternoon clash at Molineux.
WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS vs Burnley
Wolves left it late before snatching a winner at West Ham in their last Premier League game before the international break but the hosts can build on that success here.
Nuno Espirito Santos’ side have scored in both home league games so far this season and the EVS for over 1.5 home goals is worth considering. Wolves will be confident of notching three points in this encounter.
This will be Burnley’s 13th competitive fixture of the campaign – the Europa League has been something of a hindrance for Sean Dyche’s side in recent weeks. It is now time for Burnley to focus solely on the Premier League.
The visitors have failed to inspire confidence in 2018/19 and the writing is on the wall for another defeat. Burnley should create chances though and 11/10 for both teams to score is worth a second look.
TIP: Over 1.5 home goals @ EVS
PREDICTED SCORE: Wolves 3-1 Burnley (Priced at 14/1 with 888sport)
EVERTON vs West Ham United
The Toffees will be looking to put on a show for the Goodison Park faithful this weekend and it would be foolish to back against Everton in this encounter. All signs point towards a home win…
Everton have scored six goals without reply in their last two home matches against West Ham and another comfortable afternoon beckons. Silva’s side are well priced at 21/20 to pick up another victory this weekend.
The visitors have lost four out of four in the Premier League and Hammers fans will fear the worst here. Manuel Pellegrini’s men conceded four against Liverpool on their last trip to Merseyside – this could be another disappointing away day.
10/13 for West Ham to win or draw is far too short given their recent woes. Everton have the quality to outclass the Hammers in almost every department.
TIP: Everton to win @ 21/20
PREDICTED SCORE: Everton 2-0 West Ham (Priced at 9/1 with 888sport)
SOUTHAMPTON vs BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION
Southampton raised a few eyebrows with their victory away at Crystal Palace prior to the international break and Mark Hughes’ side will be looking to build on that success. After all, Saints are usually stronger on home soil.
Unfortunately, this could be an uninspiring affair for viewers though. The selection landed in 12 of Southampton’s home games last season – 3/5 represents solid value considering their lack of attacking prowess.
Brighton have struggled to inspire confidence since beating Manchester United; Albion have failed to score in two of their previous three competitive fixtures. Funnily enough, one of those encounters was a League Cup clash against… Southampton.
The Seagulls could go into defensive mode if they manage to nick an early goal. Brighton to win or draw at 4/5 is worth a second look considering how inconsistent both teams are but opting for ‘under’ on the goal line is the best bet.
TIP: Under 2.5 goals @ 3/5
PREDICTED SCORE: Southampton 1-0 Brighton (Priced at 5/1 with 888sport)
