This week's Premier League Treble is a massive 46/1 shot as Paul Robinson is expecting a couple of small upsets. Here are his selections:
The Treble pays approximately 46.62 (46/1)
Bet 1: West Ham @ 27/10
The Hammers extended their Premier League unbeaten run to six on Tuesday evening, but the truth is that a point at home against Crystal Palace has to be considered a disappointment.
David Moyes' side have actually lost just one of their last 10 in the league, but five of the other nine have been draws. Away from the London Stadium it's eight points from a possible 12 however and they racked up 11 goals in the process.
Today they travel to the south coast to take on a Brighton team who are winless in six and have recorded just one victory in 14 in the league. In their latest home match they were thrashed 4-0 by Chelsea and prior to that they failed to beat both Burnley and Bournemouth.
Bet 2: West Brom @ 9/5
The Baggies saw their four game unbeaten streak end at Manchester City on Wednesday, but they only lost 3-0 and that shouldn't halt their momentum. Unfortunately for Alan Pardew, two of their three recent wins were in the FA Cup, so they still remain rooted to the bottom of the league.
This really is a must win game for West Brom and even despite their struggles, they have lost just one of their last six at the Hawthorns in the Premier League. The problem has been scoring enough goals to beat their opponents, but the addition of Daniel Sturridge should help that, as should the recent form of Jay Rodriguez.
Southampton are five without defeat in all competitions, but they remain the relegation zone and they too are struggling to put the ball in the net. They have won just one away match this term and I think that they will find it difficult to score this afternoon.
Bet 3: Stoke @ 7/2
A somewhat surprise selection to finish but I think it could be a case of "After the Lord Mayor's Show" for Bournemouth.
The Cherries beat Chelsea by three goals to nil at Stamford Bridge during the week and they have now taken 12 points from a possible 18 since their last league defeat.
I am still not convinced by Eddie Howe's men on the whole though and feel that Stoke are a touch overpriced for this clash. Paul Lambert has won one and drawn one from his opening two games in charge and this is his first away test.
His players haven't really performed on their travels this year, but they appear to be invigorated by their new manager and they could spring a small surprise at the Vitality today.
