  • vs

The Opta trends offer positives to Tottenham and Newcastle, as well as pointing to another red card in Manchester...

"West Brom have won only two of their 14 Premier League games at The Hawthorns since January 1."
Recommended Bet: Lay West Brom to beat Newcastle @ 2.3411/8

Burnley v Hull (Saturday, 15:00)

Four of the last five league meetings between Burnley and Hull ended with a 1-0 scoreline

These clubs have won just two Premier League matches out of 20 between them this season, so you might be inclined to conclude that a draw is the most likely result at Turf Moor. However, there has been a winner in each of the Clarets and Tigers' dozen clashes since 2006/07 and, as mentioned above, the victors prevailed 1-0 on four of the last five occasions, including all of the latest three.

Recommended Bets:
Back Burnley to win 1-0 @ 9.28/1
Back Hull to win 1-0 @ 10.09/1


Man United v Crystal Palace (Saturday, 15:00)

No Premier League team has had more players sent off than Manchester United in 2014 (five)

Our midweek Man City v CSKA Moscow Opta column delivered a profit thanks to a card stat and there is a similar opportunity here. Man United's six prior Premier League fixtures served up four red cards, while Crystal Palace had someone sent off in two of their past three. Opta note that the Eagles also had a player dismissed in two of their most recent three collisions with the 20-time champions.

Recommended Bet: Back there to be a sending off @ 5.85/1


Tottenham v Stoke (Sunday, 13:30)

Stoke have won none of their last six Premier League away trips to London

Tottenham are a bigger price than usual to win this contest owing to three defeats in their previous four Premier League home games, yet they have earned three victories in four at White Hart Lane in all competitions, getting the better of six of their last nine league showdowns with Stoke at either venue too. The Potters have lost successive away outings, as well as five of their last six matches in the capital.

Recommended Bet: Back Tottenham to win @ 1.715/7


West Brom v Newcastle (Sunday, 13:30, Sky Sports 1)

The Baggies have won only two of their 14 Premier League games at The Hawthorns since January 1

Like Newcastle, West Brom have performed impressively to lift themselves into mid-table, yet they have triumphed in just one of their five league encounters as hosts under Alan Irvine. It is therefore a surprise that they are favourites as the Magpies are unbeaten in five and conquered Tottenham, Man City and Liverpool in the latter three fixtures of that sequence. These sides have met 16 times before in the Premier League, with West Brom winning a mere three.

Recommended Bet: Lay West Brom to win @ 2.3411/8
