The Daily Acca: An 11/2 treble from this afternoon's Premier League fixtures

Newcastle United manager - Eddie Howe
Talk of Eddie Howe's departure from St James' Park has quietened down

It's an 11/26.50 Daily Acca for Paul Robinson this afternoon, with his trio of selections coming from the 3pm Premier League kick-offs.

  • Newcastle to keep the heat on Spurs

  • Cherries to continue to impress

  • Eagles won't take it easy on Wolves

Leg 1 Newcastle (90mins) @ 8/151.53 (15:00)

Newcastle are finishing the season in the kind of form that saw them qualify for the Champions League last year, and while they won't achieve that this time, they will still have eyes on overhauling Spurs for fifth.

Eddie Howe's side host a Brighton team today that won their first Premier League game since the second week of March, last weekend. It was certainly an improved defensive performance against Aston Villa, but I can't see them repeating it at St James' Park.

The Magpies are scoring goals for fun at present, with four or more scored in four of their last seven outings. They head into this afternoon's game on the back of 5-1 and 1-4 victories, and it's 13 points from the last 15 available on this ground.

Leg 2 Bournemouth (90mins) @ 10/111.91 (15:00)

Brentford have had an upturn in form in recent weeks, having lost just one of their last seven, but only two of those ending in victory, and they came against Sheffield United and Luton.

Thomas Frank's side have failed to find the net in three hours of football since their last win, and with the Cherries flying under Andoni Iraola, it's hard to imagine the London based club taking anything from their trip to the south coast.

The hosts were beaten at Arsenal last weekend, but that can be forgiven, and they are currently six unbeaten in front of their own fans - winning four of the last five.

Leg 3 Crystal Palace @ 6/52.20 (15:00)

Only Manchester City have picked up more points than Crystal Palace across their last five Premier League matches, so with the Eagles available to back at above evens for their trip to Molineux, I am inclined to believe that they are a value price.

Wolves have had a better season than I envisaged they would, but their results haven't been great since the turn of spring, and it's now just one win in nine in all competitions - losing on six occasions.

A 5-1 thrashing at Man City last time can of course be forgiven, but West Ham, Arsenal and Bournemouth have all won here since the beginning of April, and if we include their FA Cup loss to Coventry, it's four defeats from their last five at home.
