Three incredibly-priced hosts combine this weekend to bring home a near-12/1 payday for Premier League punters at bwin.com.
The trio in question are Sunderland, Watford and West Brom, who, amazingly, can be backed at odds-against to slay respective adversaries Bournemouth, Newcastle and Aston Villa.
Here’s why they’re going to do the business:
How the Black Cats can be considered such blatant outsiders for this one is unfathomable.
Sam Allardyce has won all three of his meetings with bottom six rivals since taking over at the Stadium of Light, beating Newcastle, Swansea and Aston Villa.
Furthermore, prior to their victory over a hapless Norwich last time, Bournemouth failed to prevail in four straight league matches so can’t be considered in good form ahead of their Wearside sojourn.
Watford to beat Newcastle @ 11/10
Bested in four successive top-tier fixtures, the Golden Boys haven’t been playing to a standard that reflects their moniker.
However, they found solace in this troubling spell in the FA Cup, where they beat none other than Newcastle at Vicarage Road.
Before losing their previous pair of league fixtures at base camp, Quique Sanchez Flores had masterminded three home wins from four, while the Magpies have lost all bar two of their last nine on the road.
West Brom to beat Aston Villa @ 11/10
Amazingly, two Premier League games unbeaten represents the Villans longest imperious streak of the campaign to date and, with four points from six on offer, plus a draw and win in the FA Cup matches that fell either side of them, they’ll be flying ahead of this trip to the Black Country.
Don’t let this lukewarm batch of form dupe you into a punt on the visitors though.
West Brom had to be reduced to nine men in order for Bournemouth to inflict their only Hawthorns loss since October.
Tony Pulis’ troops beat both Newcastle and Stoke in their previous pair of home matches in the top flight and are sure to make it three on the spin here.
