Premier League Treble: Cherries to take a point in entertaining affair

Bournemouth striker - Callum Wilson
Can Callum Wilson force himself into the England squad?

It's a 13/1 Premier League Treble for Paul Robinson this afternoon as he is predicting a couple of draws and a resounding home win for Arsenal. Here are his selections:

- Back The Draw in Huddersfield v Cardiff @ 2/1
- Back The Draw in Bournemouth v Everton @ 13/5
- Back Arsenal @ 4/11

Bet 1: Back The Draw in Huddersfield v Cardiff @ 2/1 - KO 15:00 BST

The hosts have played two and lost two, conceding nine goals in the process. That of course leaves them bottom of the Premier League and after surviving against the odds last year, it doesn't appear that things will be any easier this time around.

That being said, David Wagner's side have had a couple of very tough fixtures in the shape of Chelsea and Manchester City. This will arguably be viewed as the easiest fixture in the division, but I just don't have confidence of taking all three points.

Opponents, Cardiff, have taken one point from their opening two games, and everything has gone as expected really. They have looked well organised and conceded just two goals, but they are yet to score, and have registered just one shot on target.

Neil Warnock will send his side up north to defend and this has 0-0 written all over it to me. However, even if Huddersfield do get a goal, the Bluebirds should be capable of getting an equaliser against them.

Jamie Pachecho is also tipping the draw in this one.

Bet 2: Back The Draw in Bournemouth v Everton @ 13/5 - KO 15:00 BST

The Cherries have made the perfect start to their season as they have played two and won two. A 2-0 success on this ground against Cardiff on the opening weekend was followed by a come-from-behind 2-1 win at West Ham, and confidence surely can't be higher around the Bournemouth camp.

Callum Wilson has two in two - he's also missed a penalty - and there is talk that Gareth Southgate is considering him for his next England squad.

Everton have four points from a possible six as they drew 2-2 at Wolves, before winning 2-1 against Southampton last Saturday.

The star of the show for them has been record-signing, Richarlison, as the Brazilian has scored three of their four goals.

This should be a really good match, which is usually a staple when these two meet, and with nothing much between them at present, I'm expecting it to end all square - possibly 2-2.

Mark O'Haire has previewed this game in full and he's showing a +6.83pts profit this season.

Bet 3: Back Arsenal @ 4/11 - KO 15:00 BST

Plenty has been said already regarding the Unai Emery era at Arsenal as it's no points from six, but there are plenty of mitigating circumstances.

The Gunners have had to face Man City and Chelsea, and while they didn't deserve anything from the 2-0 home defeat to the champions, they were value for at least a point from their trip to Stamford Bridge last weekend.

West Ham are also batting at 0 for 2, but they had the luxury of playing Bournemouth at home, and even though they led 1-0, they still imploded to be beaten 2-1.

Mark Noble and Jack Wilshere were overrun in midfield, and it will be interesting to see if Manuel Pellegrini recognises that and puts in someone who's a bit more mobile this afternoon.

Even if he does, I still expect the hosts to take the three points, and it really wouldn't surprise me if they won by a decent margin - they just need to be more clinical in front of goal than they were last week.

Andy Schooler fancies a comfortable Arsenal win too.
