West Ham to beat Bournemouth @ 27/20
There was an inevitability to the Irons slipping up against Leicester last week in the wake of their win over Arsenal, but they have a quick opportunity for penance.
Bournemouth already have the air of noble failures about them having played well in losing to two of the division’s least coherent teams in Aston Villa and Liverpool.
Crystal Palace to beat Aston Villa @ 17/20
Alan Pardew is keen for Palace to win more than half their home games this season and will doubtless have targeted the Villans for three points.
Christian Benteke made the difference in a 1-0 win at Selhurst Park last term, but that narrow and turgid success was at the Eagles’ lowest pre-Pardew ebb.
Things are different under the silver-haired motivator and Palace’s greater mutual understanding should see them home against the visitors.
Stoke to beat Norwich @ 2/1
The Potters proved themselves potent on the road once again when unlucky not to beat Spurs at White Hart Lane and they can escape Carrow Road with maximum reward.
Palace’s opening-day visit to East Anglia highlighted sizeable gaps in the home defence and Stoke are certain to punish any similar lapses in marking this weekend.
Mark Hughes will be licking his lips at the prospect of unleashing Xherdan Shaqiri for good measure.
