Sometimes it can be tough Playing Away. In fact, sometimes it can be pretty damn brutal. You put all that hard work in thinking you are going to get away with it and then come the weekend, it all blows up in your face. Just ask Ryan Giggs.
Last weekend was a tough fixture list, with only Chelsea doing us a favour, and this one is even more difficult. But undeterred, we have picked out the most likely Premier League away wins for you to have a go on.
You can use the free £20 bet you receive when registering with bwin on a single on any of the sides, or in a treble that will pay you back £648 in returns should all three selections land.
So without further ado…
Manchester City to beat Newcastle @ 31/50
Okay, so Manchester City are coming into this game on the back of a devastating last-minute derby defeat to rivals Manchester United which leaves them six points adrift in the race for the title, but they can get back on track with a win over out-of-form Newcastle.
City suffered their first league defeat of the campaign in that explosive 3-2 loss at the Etihad, but they should not fear a trip to St James’ Park. Newcastle are in dreadful form as last season’s exploits become a distant memory and Alan Pardew is looking increasingly unable to halt the decline.
Monday’s 2-1 loss at Fulham was the Magpies’ fifth defeat in the last six league matches and the only win in that run was against a Wigan side that were reduced to ten men after 12 minutes.
It leaves the Toon just two points above the relegation zone and City, who have let in just five goals on the road, can bounce back on a ground where they have won four of their last five trips, drawing the other.
West Ham to beat West Brom @ 3/1
West Bromwich Albion have hit the buffers after a good start and the price about West Ham United going to the Hawthorns and picking up the points is worth a play.
The Baggies have lost three games on the trot, scoring just one goal in defeats to Swansea City, Stoke City and Arsenal, and their early-season sparkle has gone.
There was always a sense that West Brom were overachieving and they are definitely one of the many sides in the league who are susceptible to bad runs of form.
And of all the teams that can make things difficult for you when confidence is low, West Ham are right up there. Big Sam’s side were a bit unfortunate to lose to Liverpool last time out and play in a similar way to Stoke, who West Brom struggled against a fortnight ago.
The Hammers have already won at Newcastle and QPR this year and are a decent enough price to make the most of any apprehension in the West Brom ranks.
Swansea to beat Tottenham @ 4/1
Again, this is one where the odds tempt you more than the other fixtures, but having gone to the Emirates and won with ease, why can’t Swansea make it a north London double by going to White Hart Lane and beating Tottenham Hotspur?
At 4/1, it is worth a dabble that they do. The Swans have been pretty good on the road – they are currently boasting the fifth-best record in the division – and I think that Spurs look far from invincible at home this season.
Andre Villas-Boas’ side have lost to Wigan and Chelsea in the league, as well as being held by West Brom, Norwich and Lazio, and have only kept two clean sheets in 11 games in all competition at the Lane.
Some wins, too, have either been underwhelming (Aston Villa) or quite fortunate (Liverpool) and the confident Swans, buoyed by reaching the last four of the League Cup, are capable of stunning Tottenham.
