There aren't really any high-profile 3pm Premier League fixtures today but that doesn't mean that there isn't value to be had, and Paul Robinson has picked out a 38/1 treble. Here are his selections:

- Back Newcastle @ 10/11
- Back Burnley @ 6/1
- Back The Draw in Huddersfield v WBA @ 19/10

The Treble pays approximately 38.75 (38/1)

Bet 1: Newcastle @ 10/11

The odds available for a home win astound me here as I would have had Newcastle priced up far shorter than 10/11. They come into the game sitting in ninth place in the division, and while they were beaten at Turf Moor on Monday, prior to that it had been a win and two draws.

Their record at St James' Park this term is one to make note of as they have won three of their five matches in front of their own fans - losing just once.

Bournemouth on the other hand are down in 19th place having taken just seven points from a possible 30. They had won back to back games - league and cup - before their match against Chelsea last Saturday, but they lost 1-0 at home and I have little faith about their chances of putting that right on the road.

Eddie Howe's men have lost four of their five away from the south coast and their sole victory came against an out of sorts, Stoke.


Bet 2: Burnley @ 6/1

This selection surely has to be the value bet of the day. Burnley - a team who have already won at Stamford Bridge and Goodison Park, as well as drawing at Wembley against Spurs and at Anfield against Liverpool, are as big as 6/1 to win at Southampton.

Obviously this is no 'dead cert', but their only defeat across their last 11 fixtures in all competitions came against Man City - and that can easily be excused.

Their opponents today are in 10th place in the league - three places and three points worse off than them. They are undefeated in three, but draws against Newcastle and Brighton, and a victory over West Brom, are results hardly worth shouting about.

The Saints have already been beaten twice at St Mary's this year as Manchester United and Watford have left with all three points, and I fancy Sean Dyche's side to be added to that list.


Bet 3: The Draw in Huddersfield v WBA @ 19/10

In one of the more uninspiring fixtures of the day, I am siding with the draw in the clash between Huddersfield and West Brom at the John Smith's Stadium.

The Baggies have already drawn four times in this campaign and they could do with suffering their third straight loss this afternoon. Tony Pulis is the kind of manager who will target games like this to get the three points, but he won't have it easy against David Wagner's men.

The Terriers were beaten 3-0 at Liverpool last Saturday but in their most recent outing here they recorded a 2-1 victory against Manchester United. They have only lost once on this ground this term and there is every chance that they will be able to keep another clean sheet today.
