We’ve tips for those two matches, as well as the match between Everton and West Brom.
Bournemouth vs West Ham (Saturday 3.00)
Bournemouth are looking decidedly vulnerable after 4 straight defeats, and only 2 points to show from their last 5 home games. Meanwhile, West Ham have taken 7 points from their last 3 away games, and will take further motivation from winning this fixture 3-1 last season, and beating Bournemouth 1-0 at home earlier in the season. Therefore, West Ham look the value at 9/5.
West Ham Win @ 9/5 (Various Bookies)
Everton vs West Brom (Saturday 3.00)
Everton sit just one point above West Brom, and there are also hasn’t been much between the two teams in recent renewals of this fixture, with the last 3 finishing 0-1, 0-0 and 0-0. However, surprisingly considering those results, Everton have won on their last 3 visits to West Brom. Everton have also been in great form at home recently, taking 17-points from their last 7 home games, which is even better considering 4 of their opponents were Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool. West Brom have been picking points up away from home too, but have come up short against the better teams. Therefore, Everton look to have the better momentum, and can land the spoils.
Hull vs Swansea (Saturday 3.00)
4 wins in 6 games has seen Swansea haul themselves out of the Relegation Zone, and they’re now 6-points clear of a Hull side that is languishing in 19th place, 4 points behind 17th placed Crystal Palace. This looks a must-win game for Hull, and they’ll take plenty of confidence from the fact they’ve already beaten Swansea 2-0 twice this season, away from home, and at home in the FA Cup in January. Hull have also been beaten just once at home in the league since October. It’s 8/5 for a Hull win, and 12/1 that they again win 2-0.
