With Sunderland and Cardiff preparing for a relegation-landscape reshaping collision on Sunday, Fulham and West Brom have been handed a chance to leap towards safety.
The Baggies will move six points clear of the 18th-placed Bluebirds with victory at home to West Ham, though if the west Londoners manage to snatch the spoils from Hull they will remain in touching distance of the Black Country club.
Individually, punters can back West Brom at 9/10 and Fulham at 5/4, but the best advice to approach these two must-win matches is to combine the pair and land an 82/25 payday.
Fulham to beat Hull @ 5/4
Felix Magath has unquestionably improved the Cottagers’ fortunes during his short tenure, but this will likely count for nothing if they fail to vanquish Steve Bruce’s side.
Their prospects of victory are boosted by the fact that only two top-tier outfits are worse travellers than the Tigers, but they have managed to win two from their last five away games.
Even more worryingly, both of these successes came against Fulham’s bottom-three bedfellows, however, the hosts have got the job done when the pressure has been on in two of their last three at the Cottage, which bodes well ahead of this contest against a very beatable adversary.
Further support for this prospective punt comes from the fact that the home team has won five of the six Premier League tussles between the two.
West Brom to beat West Ham @ 9/10
One more win may just be enough to keep the Throstles afloat and this all-West affair offers a fantastic opportunity to yield it.
With their own survival assured, the Hammers have definitely eased off, or at least that’s what six defeats in eight indicates.
They head to the Midlands having lost each of their last three to face a side undefeated in six of seven on the homestead, scoring three in both of these.
Okay, so no win is present in this invincible sextet, but if Pepe Mel’s men exemplify the same level of attacking acumen here they should prevail seeing as though West Ham have struck three times in one game just once in 2014.
