Chelsea v Aston Villa (Saturday, 15:00)
Chelsea have kept only one clean sheet in their last six Premier League games
Despite prevailing at massive odds away to Liverpool, Aston Villa are similarly discounted at Chelsea, with the most enticing possibility being the chance to back them at odds-against to score. The Blues' sole shutout in seven attempts across all competitions this term came when Dave Nugent missed a sitter for Leicester, while Villa fired three at the Stamford Bridge on two of their previous four visits.
Recommended Bet: Back Chelsea not to keep a clean sheet @ 2.245/4
Southampton v QPR (Saturday, 15:00)
The Saints are the only Premier League team yet to concede a home goal
The Southampton win to nil carries a faint "seems so likely to happen that something will go wrong" whiff, but the statistical case is so strong. Saints don't leak at St Mary's, while QPR haven't notched in five top-flight road trips, and Ronald Koeman's men have won five in a row across the board while QPR's three 2014/15 away dates have ended 0-4 (Tottenham), 0-1 (Burton) and 0-4 (Man United).
Recommended Bet: Back Southampton to win to nil @ 2.3211/8
West Brom v Burnley (Sunday, 16:00, Sky Sports 1)
Burnley have gained three points from just one goal in the Premier League this season
Hull 2-2 West Ham and QPR 2-2 Stoke show that you shouldn't dismiss the Premier League's less glamorous TV offerings as dull, but the trends for this one certainly suggest that it will vindicate the low expectations. West Brom have only netted once in three league encounters, while Burnley haven't scored since the 14th minute of their opener against Chelsea. Between them, the clubs have also claimed five league clean sheets from a possible ten in 2014/15.
Recommended Bet: Back under 2.5 goals @ 1.748/11
Stoke v Newcastle (Monday, 20:00, Sky Sports 1)
Stoke have won three of their last four Premier League home games against Newcastle
It is assumed that Newcastle are over the worst of their lengthy recent slump. However, they didn't actually win a 90-minute match during the perceived mini-revival, salvaging a 2-2 draw at home to Hull and beating Crystal Palace in extra time, and remain bottom of the Premier League. Opta add that they have lost four successive Monday league fixtures, conceding 12 times in the process.
Best Bet: Back Stoke to win @ 2.1411/10
