David Easson and Paul Robinson - Premier League Betting Preview - Saturday 2nd March


Saturday’s Premier League Picks with Paul Robinson

The former England keeper selects a treble to start off your Saturday in the Premier League

Let’s start at St.James’s Park, where Newcastle haven’t won any of their last 4. Wolves have been good of late. They got through in the cup with a defensive display against Brighton, beat Sheffield United last week and of course had that terrific win at Spurs. But they’ve lost firepower with Cunha out and now Hwang looking like he was badly injured midweek. I saw them in that win over brighton and they gave possession away far too much. Newcastle should benefit from that. Eddie Howe’s side managed to keep their season alive with that penalty shoot-out at Blackburn. They were outplayed, weren't the better team, but they got through which will give him a huge lift. Players are coming back into that side. You look at his starting 11, look at the bench and Howe is now getting options and I just think it's a good time to play Wolves who have had a busy week, so I'm going to tip up Newcastle to win at home finally.

Palace have a VERY poor record at Tottenham. One goal scored in this fixture since 2004! I predict that will continue under the new manager too. They had a little change in fortune last week against Burnley with a 3-0 home win, but it was against a very poor side. 28 points in the bag and some would argue that possibly one more win would see them quite soundly safe this season. Spurs are levelling out. They’re inconsistent. Spurs lost last time out against Wolves, won against Brighton and drew with Everton. I just think that with the firepower they have they should be no match for Palace – particularly at home. Fifth place is still on offer but they need to keep up with Villa and not let that gap grow. This should be comfortable for Spurs – into the treble they go.

Luton have been showing up but it’s been a tough schedule and they hit the buffers against City in the Cup. Conceding 6 will be a blow. It was a game that they wouldn't have been expecting to win, but it was damage limitation and they got damaged. A defeat at Liverpool, a decent performance in a home defeat against Manchester United, but they're in the bottom three now and Everton have got those points back. Four points from safety and missing a couple of key players, whereas Villa on the other hand look to have had their blip this season, five points clear of Spurs and eight points clear of Man United.  56 goals scored this season for Aston Villa over 2.3 a game with six clean sheets. The firepower of Watkins, the pace that they've got up front, and they will have looked at the Man City game on Tuesday to see how they can hurt Luton down the side of those central defenders and I fear for Luton.

So Villa make up my treble for Saturday of Newcastle, Tottenham and Aston Villa, to cap it off at a decent price as well, which should be a decent shot of around 4/1
