Everton 12/10  
Draw 43/20 
Brighton 51/20 

Everton will welcome the return to Goodison Park after suffering back-to-back defeats away to Watford and Burnley. The Toffees have been impressive at home, losing just once (2-0 against Man United on January 1st) in their last nine games. In that run, they won six times and drew twice. Brighton come into this tie high on confidence following their 2-1 victory at home to Arsenal. That result – their second win in a row – extended their unbeaten streak in the league to five games. However, the Seagulls are winless in their last eight away matches, losing five times. I’m going for value and backing Everton to Win & Both Teams to Score at 4/1.

Huddersfield 29/20 
Draw 2/1 
Swansea 21/10 

Huddersfield will be looking to bounce back from last weekend’s 2-0 defeat away to Tottenham. Prior to that loss, the Terriers had won back-to-back games, beating Bournemouth 4-1 before winning 2-1 at bottom side West Brom. Their victory over the Cherries was only their first home win in six matches. Swansea come off an emphatic 4-1 win at home to West Ham which lifted them from 18th to 13th on the table. Carlos Carvalhal will be hoping to keep the Welsh outfit in a solid position but they need to improve on their travels. Two wins on the road from 14 games – and eight losses – doesn’t bode well. I’m backing the sides to cancel each other out.

Newcastle 17/10 
Draw 2/1 
Southampton 7/4 

Newcastle find themselves 16th in the Premier League with just one victory in their last seven matches. That win came in their last match at St. James' Park where they beat Man United 1-0 thanks to Matt Ritchie’s strike. The Magpies come off a 2-0 defeat away to Liverpool and Rafael Benitez will be hoping for a positive reaction from his players. Southampton are just below Newcastle in the table with just a point above the relegation zone. The Saints have been struggling under manager Mauricio Pellegrino, having won just once in their last 16 Premier League games. The draw looks likely.

West Brom 19/10 
draw 21/10 
Leicester City 31/20

Leicester City will be targeting their first Premier League win in six matches when they visit bottom side West Brom. The Baggies succumbed to their fifth straight league defeat as they were beaten 1-0 at Watford last weekend, leaving Alan Pardew's side eight points from safety. Leicester will see this game as a good opportunity to get back to winning ways. The Foxes, who are eighth in the league, have drawn three of their last five matches. With West Brom showing no signs of improving, I’m backing the visitors to come away with maximum points.

West Ham 12/10  
Draw 21/10 
Burnley 5/2 

West Ham lie 14th in the Premier League table with just three points above the relegation zone. David Moyes' side have won just once in their last six matches with three defeats, including back-to-back 4-1 losses away to Liverpool and Swansea. The Hammers have, however, looked better at home, going four games unbeaten with two wins. Burnley ended an 11-match winless run in the Premier League with a 2-1 victory at home to Everton last weekend. Sean Dyche will be hoping to build on that win, but the Clarets haven’t beaten the Hammers in their last five Premier League meetings, losing four times. Back the hosts on the Win/Draw Double Chance at 3/10.

Chelsea 3/10  
Draw 17/4 
Crystal Palace 17/2 

This is a must-win game for Chelsea. The Premier League champions were outclassed by Manchester City last weekend, losing 1-0 at the Etihad Stadium – their fourth defeat from their last five league matches. With the Blues five points behind fourth-placed Tottenham, Antonio Conte will be desperate to secure maximum points against 18th-placed Crystal Palace. Roy Hodgson’s side blew away a two-goal lead to lose 3-2 against Manchester United at Selhurst Park on Monday. That was Palace’s third straight defeat which extended their winless streak to six matches. I fancy the Blues to win here, but Both Teams to Score is the safest bet and offers more value at 11/10.

Sunday 11 March

Arsenal 5/10 
Draw 36/10 
Watford 47/10 

Arsenal will be desperate to return to winning ways when they host Watford on Sunday. The Gunners succumbed to their third straight league defeat – and fourth from their last five – away to promoted Brighton, with pressure mounting on Arsene Wenger. The Gunners haven’t kept a clean sheet in their last 11 Premier League games with goalkeeper Petr Cech still waiting for his 200th clean sheet. Watford have won three of their last four league games, including back-to-back 1-0 victories at home to Everton and West Brom. However, the Hornets are winless in their last seven games on the road, losing six times. I expect Arsenal to win here, but rather be safe and take Both Teams to Score at 11/20.

Bournemouth 9/2 
Draw 33/10 
Tottenham 11/20 

Bournemouth will be hoping to cause an upset against Tottenham, just as they did against London giants Arsenal and Chelsea at the beginning of the year. The Cherries recorded a 2-1 home win over the Gunners in January and later that month, thumped the Blues 3-0 in their own backyard. Eddie Howe's side are unbeaten in their last five games at the Vitality Stadium, winning three times. Tottenham have been in superb form, going 11 league games unbeaten with eight wins – including three on the spin. I’m expecting a tight affair but I think Spurs will do enough to secure all three points.

Monday 12 March

Stoke City 10/1  
Draw 52/10 
Manchester City 2/9 

Manchester City take on 19th-placed Stoke at the bet365 Stadium on Monday night in what can only be described as a blood bath waiting to happen. Pep Guardiola’s side annihilated the Potters in the reverse tie, winning 7-2 at the Etihad Stadium in October. It’s pretty straightforward, back the Citizens to Win By Three Or More Goals at 15/10.

TREBLE @ 5/1
Arsenal vs Watford BTTS 11/20
Tottenham Win 11/20
Man City Win By 3 Or More Goals 15/10
