We’re set for a bumper Saturday of football this weekend and our Super Odds Saturday 3pm Treble this week focuses on one Premier League clash and two games from the Championship, with Chelsea, West Brom and Fulham all tipped to win. You can get enhanced odds of 6/1, from 4/1, and can bet up to £5.
Read on for our previews of the three games.
Bournemouth vs Chelsea
It’s been a funny old season for Chelsea. One minute they’ve looked excellent under Frank Lampard and capable of beating most teams, the next minute, they fold all too easily and are capable of slipping up when least expected.
The last week sums that up perfectly, with the Blues going from the highs of a 2-1 win over top-four rivals Tottenham to the lows of a 3-0 hounding at the hands of Bayern Munich. Bayern, admittedly, are a side of top quality, however, and not too much should be read into that defeat as Chelsea head into Saturday’s game at struggling Bournemouth.
With Chelsea’s hold on fourth place down to just three points, with Manchester United and the rest breathing down their necks, expect them to rise to the occasion and secure victory at the Vitality Stadium, particularly against a Bournemouth side that have recorded just three wins in 16 Premier League games, losing 12 of those.
West Brom vs Wigan
Things got a little hairy for West Brom for a while there. Having looked well placed for automatic promotion from the Championship, they proceeded to pick up just one win in nine league games around Christmas, seriously jeopardising their Premier League hopes.
Recently, however, Slaven Bilic’s side have managed to turn things around, picking up five victories from their last six matches to put them four points clear at the top of the table and nine points clear of the play-offs.
With Hal Robson-Kanu having netted three goals in his last two games, expect him to carry that form into Saturday’s game at home to relegation candidates Wigan. While the Latics sit in the drop zone, they have picked up three wins from their last six and will be no pushovers, but West Brom should have too much for the visitors as they continue their promotion charge.
Fulham vs Preston
Another Championship side with ambitions of playing Premier League football next season are Fulham, who sit nine points off West Brom in third. With five points separating themselves from second-placed Leeds, the west London side won’t be settling for a place in the play-offs any time soon.
Fulham face a tricky encounter on Saturday at home to sixth-placed Preston, but with Championship top scorer Aleksandar Mitrovic, who has 23 league goals to his name this season, among their ranks they’ll back themselves to overcome most teams.
Former Newcastle striker Mitrovic has netted two goals in his last two games and will fancy his chances of adding to that tally this weekend en route to inspiring Fulham to an 18th Championship victory of the campaign.
