The array of Combi+ enhanced multiple offers at bwin always provides plenty to shout about, but there’s arguably never been a better instalment than the 5/1 double chance serving on offer this weekend.
If Aston Villa, Hull and Liverpool all dodge defeat in their respective matches against West Ham, Burnley and Chelsea, punters’ pockets will be heavily lined and, while two of these teams have especially daunting tasks ahead of them, it’s a far cry from impossible that they end Saturday unbeaten.
Aston Villa to avoid defeat against West Ham @ 21/20
The Irons are seeking a fourth successive victory at the Boleyn Ground, whereas Villa are looking to avoid a seventh consecutive smiting; their form couldn’t be more contrasted.
But the Villans’ despair stems from a long run of fixtures against teams who finished in last season’s top seven (with the exception of QPR).
Only one of their first ten opponents this term closed the previous campaign in the top-tier’s lower reaches; that was Hull, who were despatched with ease.
Their 2-1 win over the Tigers saw Andi Weimann and Gabriel Agbonlahor share the burden of bagging the goals and in talisman Christian Benteke’s absence, they’ll be tasked to do the same again.
Villa have prevailed in two of the three matches in which Agbonla-score has started up top alone, or alongside his Austrian colleague so there are some positive omens ahead of their trip to east London.
Hull to avoid defeat against Burnley @ 1/2
Competent Premier League Premier League outfit Hull are more than capable of swerving a setback at Turf Moor against foes clearly not cut out for the top-flight.
The Clarets are yet to taste victory in 11 matches in all competitions, shipping exactly three across their latest trio of games.
Steve Bruce’s side have lost just one league fixture on the road so far, matching adversaries as mighty as Arsenal and Liverpool on their travels.
Liverpool to avoid defeat against Chelsea @ 31/50
This is the leg of the bet most likely to sink the ship, but the Reds can survive when Jose Mourinho’s men visit.
Sporting Lisbon are the only hosts in eight this term unable to perforate the Blues’ reinforced backline at least once.
At the other end, Shrewsbury and Crystal Palace are the only foes Chelsea managed to bag multiple away goals against since scoring six at Everton in August.
