Fancy a punt on the prem this weekend? We’ve teamed up with a professional tipster to offer the best value for money bets around.

A glut of goals in the midweek European matches served as a wonderful prelude to this weekend’s action and we should be set for another fantastic set of fixtures in the Premier League.
Saturday’s offering gives us a total of six matches and we’re looking to bash the bookies with the following bets.
Here are our selections:
West Ham United V Manchester City. 12:45PM
The weekend’s action starts at the Boleyn Ground where surprise package West Ham entertain the champions.
Sam Alalrdyce’s men have been brilliant this season but City will still be considered favourites. However, the visitors could be a little off the pace following the long trip to Russia in midweek and think the Hammers can grab a share of the spoils.
West Ham +1 Asian handicap @ 42/41 with BetVictor
Liverpool V Hull. 3PM
Steve Bruce’s Tigers picked up a fantastic 2-2 draw at Arsenal last weekend and they will be confident about securing more points against a Liverpool that are really out of sorts, particularly in defence.
Hull have scored 13 times this season and should find the target at Anfield. However, the Reds will be desperate to put on an entertaining display at home and should score too.
Both Teams To Score @ 10/11 with SkyBet
Southampton V Stoke City. 3PM
Ronald Koeman’s honeymoon period hit new heights last weekend with the mind-blowing 8-0 demolition of Sunderland, but they could be in for a much tougher contest against Mark Hughes’ Potters.
Southampton have scored for fun against the worst defences but Stoke’s is fairly solid. Fortunately for the Saints, their defence should enjoy a relatively comfortable afternoon against a fairly slow attacking unit.
Under 2.5 goals @ 21/20 with BetVictor
Sunderland V Arenal. 3PM
Arsenal fans might bemoan their poor start to 2014/15 but that’s nothing in comparison to what the travelling Sunderland fans saw at Southampton last week. There’s a good chance that the Black Cats could be in for more bad luck against the Gunners.
Time and time again we see strikers come back to haunt their former clubs and we think former Sunderland loanee Danny Welbeck will break hearts on Weirside on Saturday.
Danny Welbeck to score first @ 9/2 with Paddy Power
West Bromwich Albion V Crystal Palace. 3PM
Both sides will be heading into this crucial fixture with high hopes of picking up three points and that could lead to a cracking end-to-end contest at the Hawthorns.
There is a good chance that it may be cagey in the opening minutes but the first goal could spark a flurry of activity. With both defences currently leaking goals for fun, we’re optimistic that there will be plenty of goals after the interval.
Both Teams To Score in 2nd half @ 11/4 with SkyBet
Swansea City V Leicester City. 5:30PM
Newly promoted Leicester have yet to find a way of replicating their impressive home performances, but Nigel Pearson’s men can pick up a positive result in Wales.
Swansea are now five matches without a victory; Garry Monk’s side could be in for further disappointment here. We wouldn’t be confident on backing the away win but do think the Foxes can salvage something from the game.
Double Chance: Leicester City or Draw @ 10/11 with Bet365
