Ahead of this weekend’s Premier League fixtures, RedArmyBet take a look at three games taking place in our weekend treble with previews, betting tips and odds.
Crystal Palace vs. Bournemouth, Sunday 12th May, 15:00
It’s been a fairly mediocre season for both Bournemouth and Palace, but they’ll both want to give their fans a good summer send off this Sunday. All too often this term the Eagles have struggled to find their form at Selhurst Park as only Huddersfield have picked up fewer points in front of their own fans, and with just one win from their last six here, coming over the Terriers, they look worth taking on.
Of course, the Cherries have hardly excelled on their travels either, though with star striker Callum Wilson back in business with three goals and as many assists across their last two road trips, he should help them secure the maximum points this weekend.
Not to mention, one of those was a 5-0 win over Brighton at the Amex, while the hosts are still without first choice centre-back pairing James Tomkins and Mamadou Sakho. The Eagles are winless from their three head-to-heads here against their visitors since 2015/16, losing in February 2016, as well as the reverse fixture this term, and we feel they’ll be outgunned.
Bournemouth Win at 3.75*
Watford vs. West Ham, Sunday 12th May, 15:00
It has been back-to-back defeats for Watford against both Wolves (H) and Chelsea (A). In fact, they have just one victory from their last six outings in all competitions, coming against the relegated Terriers by a single strike, and having lost three of these they don’t look in particularly good nick.
Meanwhile, the Hammers find themselves with two straight victories now over Spurs and the Saints and look to be finishing the season off well. A key factor of that turnaround in form has been the re-igniting of star striker Marco Arnautovic.
The Austrian international provided just one assist and no goals in 10 outings following his link to China back in January, but he provided the decisive pass for Michail Antonio to score the winner against the Lilywhites and netted a brace against Southampton last time out.
We’re somewhat surprised to see them so big, especially with the Hornets likely to be conscious of their all-important FA Cup final at Wembley next weekend and could well field a weakened team.
West Ham Win at 3.00*
Fulham vs. Newcastle, Sunday 12th May, 15:00
There is a new sense of life about this Fulham outfit now that the pressure of relegation has been released after their fate was sealed when losing to Watford at the start of last month. Indeed, they’ve since won three of their four matches as only a very accomplished Wolves outfit could get the better of them at the Molineux, as their victories came over Everton, Bournemouth and Cardiff.
Their opposition this Sunday took Liverpool to the wire at St James’ Park in their last outing, but they’ve won just once in 11 trips across all competitions since Christmas, losing five. In fact, they even failed to win the reverse fixture in their own back yard against the Cottagers, who have been the standout worst travelers in the league this season, earning just five points from their 19 away days.
The hosts have shored up their porous midfield with the help of Callum Chambers, while their output has increased thanks to the in-form Ryan Babel, netting three from his last five appearances, including both his last two at Craven Cottage.
Fulham Win at 2.45*
