West Ham 7/10 Draw 31/10 Newcastle 39/10

 

West Ham have dropped to fifth place, 2 points behind Manchester United and a number of chasing teams have games in hand. A late equalizer gave them a 2-2 draw at Leicester last weekend and recent home games against sides in the lower reaches of the log delivered a 2-0 win over Norwich, 3-2 defeat to Leeds and a 1-0 win over Watford.

 

Newcastle are on a roll and a 1-0 win at home to Villa last week means they have taken the maximum of 9 points from their last 3 matches. Two draws prior to that sees them unbeaten in their last 5 league games and they are now fourth from bottom and 4 points clear of third bottom Norwich.

 

The first league meeting between the sides this season came in August and West Ham were 4-2 winners at S. James Park.

 

The Verdict:

 

West Ham may have beaten the likes of Norwich and Watford in home games but they have also lost to Southampton and Leeds in front of their own supporters recently so I wouldn't rush in to take the odds on.

 

Newcastle will miss the injured Trippier who scored last week's winner against Villa. They have improved leaps and bounds defensively but I see goals for both sides here and hopefully 3 or more in total.

 

Chris Wood is due a goal for Newcastle and is taken to score any time.

 

Bets: Both teams to score and over 2.5 total goals (yes) at 21/20

Anytime goalscorer Chris Wood at 2.55/1

 

 

Manchester City 3/10 Draw 5/1 Spurs 9/1

 

City remain 9 points clear of Liverpool in the title race although they have played 1 game more than Klopp's team who host Norwich earlier in the day. A 5-0 win at Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League Round of 16 first leg in midweek surely puts them in the last 8 and league form comprises of 14 wins and 1 draw in their last 15 outings.

 

Spurs have lost their last 3 league games, most recently going down 2-0 at home to Wolves. They were also beaten 3-2 at home by Southampton and their latest road trip ended in a 2-0 loss at Chelsea. That sequence has seen them slip to eighth in the standings, 7 points off a top 4 spot but along with other chasers such as Arsenal and Wolves they do have games in hand.

 

Spurs are 1 of only 2 sides to have beaten City in the EPL this season, they edged the first contest 1-0 in London at the start of the season.

 

The Verdict:

 

It goes without saying that City are in awesome form and Spurs seem to have hit a wall in recent weeks. I fancy City will score in both halves of football and I'll also go with a multi scores option of 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1

 

Bets: City to score in both halves? (yes) at 0.92/1

Multi Scores 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 at 19/10
