Premier League Treble: Newcastle's woes to continue

It could be another long afternoon for Rafa Benitez
It could be another long afternoon for Rafa Benitez

Paul Robinson has put together a 15/1 Premier League Treble from a tasty schedule of 3pm kick offs. Here are his selections:

- Back West Ham @ 23/20
- Back Crystal Palace @ 6/4
- Back Watford @ 2/1

The Treble pays approximately 16.12 (15/1)

Bet 1: West Ham @ 23/20

The Hammers have significantly improved under David Moyes and they should be able to pick up another three points this afternoon at Newcastle's expense.

They were knocked out of the EFL Cup at Arsenal during the week, but Moyes correctly stated that their priority was the league. They won 3-0 at Stoke last Saturday and that made it seven points from a possible nine, following a draw with Arsenal and a victory over Chelsea.

Newcastle come into the game on the back of four straight defeats and just a single point from their last nine matches. That is a truly miserable run for The Magpies and Rafa Benitez's men are now in the bottom three.

Bet 2: Crystal Palace @ 6/4

It seem almost unimaginable that Crystal Palace would be as high as 14th before the festive period has even started, considering how they started the campaign.

Roy Hodgson has got them purring at present though and back to back wins over Watford and Leicester extended their unbeaten run to seven. Wilfried Zaha is proving a thorn in the opposition back four and while he can be wasteful at times, he creates enough chances for that not to matter too much.

This afternoon they travel to Swansea with Leon Britton in charge of the hosts. Paul Clement was finally dismissed during the week, but I can't see the managerial change making too much difference.

The bottom line is that The Swans are a poor team with little in the forward areas. They will probably keep Palace at bay for a while, but The Eagles will get a goal or two in the end.

Bet 3: Watford @ 2/1

This fixture sees two out of form sides take each other on as Brighton host Watford and it's the visitors who appeal most at the prices.

Marco Silva's men have gone off the boil of late but they did play well in some of their defeats. The worst performance of all came last Saturday against Huddersfield, so I'm sure the manager will have put some extra work in on the training ground.

The Hornets have already won four times on the road this term and today they travel to a Brighton team who are winless in seven and have lost three of their last four.

It should be noted that Chris Hughton's men have proved difficult to beat at home this year - they've only lost to Man City and Liverpool - but they have drawn five of their other seven and I can see them being turned over here.
