West Brom’s alarming slide into trouble at the bottom of the Premier League will be abated with victory at hot-and-cold Everton.
It’s a result we’re banking on to complete the set in our compass point treble for the weekend that forecasts away wins for West Ham and Southampton as well as the imperiled Baggies.
Should all three pocket maximum points, punters who place the wager will land a payday in the region of 43/1.
Not bad, huh? Here’s why it’s a worthy wager…
Tony Pulis’ men haven’t won too many of late, but they haven’t been losing that often either.
Avoiding defeat nine times out of 11 across all competitions isn’t exactly awful; it’s consistent at least.
The same cannot be said of Everton, who have beaten just Newcastle and Aston Villa at Goodison Park over a stretch of seven league matches, losing to Stoke, Leicester and Swansea in that spell.
West Brom have swerved a set back on their previous two visits to this venue and can capitalise against unreliable Everton.
West Ham to beat Norwich @ 19/10
If West Brom’s form is bad, Norwich’s doesn’t bear thinking about. Five straight losses precede West Ham’s visit to Carrow Road.
Alex Neil’s outfit have been bested by seven of the 13 top half foes they’ve faced so far, while the Irons have slipped up against just two bottom half sides all season.
Interestingly, there’s been an injury-time goal in each of the last four renewals, making the 23/20 about the net bulging between the 75th-minute and full time a must back.
Southampton to beat Swansea @ 7/5
Fraser Forster’s return to the Saints goal has coincided with the club keeping an outrageous five straight clean sheets, having kept just one in the nine that led up to the Cumbrian colossus’ comeback.
History says he’ll record a sixth at the Liberty Stadium, where his side have never conceded in the Premier League.
The Swans struggle for goals at home against the most generous defences, notching just seven in their last nine.
One will be enough for the visitors here.
