Newcastle vs. West Brom
Back Newcastle +0.5 at 1.32 (bet365)
Newcastle have only lost once as the home favourite over the last 12 months (2-4-1) while West Brom have gone 0-1-4 away from home this season. The Baggies have only scored 3 goals in their last 7 games.
Southampon vs. Sheffield United
Back Southampton in the head-to-head at 1.75 (bet365)
The big news for Southampton is they have top goalscorer Danny Ings back from a one-month injury. Ings added a spark to their attack when he returned as a second-half substitute last week. The hosts bring 6-2-1 form into this clash. Sheffield United, meanwhile, sit bottom of the table with a 0-1-10 record. The Blades have lost their last seven straight away fixtures.
Back Southampton to win by a 1-goal margin at 3.50 (bet365)
Eight of Sheffield United’s last nine defeats were by a one-goal margin.
Crystal Palace vs. Tottenham
Back Tottenham in the head-to-head at 1.73 (Unibet)
Tottenham bring 7-3-0 form into this clash and they haven’t conceded a goal in four games. Crystal Palace defeated West Brom 5-1 last week, but their dominance in that clash only came after West Brom went down to ten men in the first half. Palace have gone 0-1-9 in their last ten fixtures against Tottenham. Their solitary draw came in the final fixture of last season when Tottenham had nothing to play for.
