47/1 Premier League Stat Attack Acca
West Brom vs Brighton
West Brom’s survival hopes are dwindling and nothing but a win will suffice for the Baggies against Graham Potters Seagulls at the Hawthorns on Saturday.
- An early goal (before 31:00 minutes) was scored in 100% of West Brom’s last eight Premier League home games.
- In seven of those eight games, the net rippled before the 15-minute mark.
- Three of the last five goals scored by WBA at the Hawthorns were notched inside the first 30 minutes.
Betting tip: Early goal before 31:00 @5/6
Newcastle vs Wolves
Newcastle are just about keeping their necks above water, but another defeat against Wolves on Saturday would see the Magpies’ relegation odds slashed.
- Wolves have been drawing at half time in 13 of their 25 Premier League fixtures this season.
- Newcastle have been level with their opponents in 12 of their 25 Premier League matches this term.
- Newcastle and Wolves have been all square at half time in each of their last two league encounters.
Betting tip: Half time result – draw @1/1
Crystal Palace vs Fulham
Can the Cottagers maintain their late survival push when they cross London to take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park?
- Five of Fulham’s last six Premier League goals were notched after the half time interval.
- The Cottagers’ goal against Crystal Palace in the team’s last meeting in October was struck after half time.
- Nine of the last 17 goals conceded at home by Palace were shipped in the second period.
Betting tip: Away team highest scoring half – second @6/4
Tottenham Hotspur vs Burnley
Under-fire Jose Mourinho needs a positive result and performance against Burnley in what could prove a tricky test for Tottenham in North London.
- Tottenham didn’t score a single first half goal in each of their last six Premier League fixtures.
- Spurs didn’t hit a first half goal in four of their last five league meetings with Burnley.
- Burnley conceded just one first half goal in their last four top flight tussles.
Betting tip: Tottenham to score in the first half – no @11/10
Sheffield United vs Liverpool
With their title all but relinquished, Liverpool need a win at bottom club Sheffield United to get their top four challenge back on track.
- Sheffield United scored exactly one when they played Liverpool at Anfield earlier this season.
- Liverpool have shipped exactly one goal in three of their last four Premier League away matches, and in six of their last nine assignments on the road overall.
- The Blades have scored exactly one goal in four of their last eight league games.
Betting tip: Home team exact goals – one @6/4
