It’s FA Cup weekend but our betting attentions are cast solely to the Premier League matches as we bid to smash the bookies throughout the course of Saturday.

There are seven Premier League fixtures to look forward to during the afternoon and we’re hopeful that these selections will provide some extra cash in the build up to Christmas.

Good luck!

Newcastle United V Chelsea. 12:45PM

Jose Mourniho’s Blues are in cruise control right now and enter this weekend’s clash with a six-point lead at the top. Equally impressive is the fact they’ve not conceded in four competitive fixtures and we’re predicting another comfortable afternoon for Thibaut Courtois in the Chelsea goal.

Newcastle don’t do middle ground, it’s either jubilation or despair. On this occasion, we think it will be the latter.

Hull City V West Bromwich Albion. 3PM

Two of the Premier League’s out-of-form strugglers collide at the KC Stadium and we’re backing plenty of action as the Tigers host West Brom.

Neither side has won in over a month but will have pinpointed this as a winnable fixture. Both defences are quite poor so attack with be the aim of the day. It could be another thriller between two sides at the bottom of the league.

Liverpool V Sunderland. 3PM

The Reds have endured a difficult start to the campaign but will be in buoyant mood following back-to-back league wins and can complete that particular hat-trick with an easy win over Sunderland.

Brendan Rodgers’ men are due a big performance and Gus Poyet’s men could face an onslaught. The visitors will be drained after the midweek loss to Manchester City, as well as the difficult visit of Chelsea last week, and that could take its toll here.

QPR V Burnley. 3PM

Both QPR and Burnley have started to find the net on a more frequent basis in recent weeks and the newly promoted rivals could be set for an epic showdown at Loftus Road.

Four of QPR’s last five home games have ended with both teams scoring at least twice and the goals could well flow again here. With Charlie Austin and Danny Ings both hitting top form, it should be a thrilling encounter.

Stoke City V Arsenal. 3PM

Summer signing Alexis Sanchez has saved Arsene Wenger’s men on several occasions since making the switch from Barcelona and the Chilean superstar could be the hero once more during the trip to Stoke.

Arsenal are quietly going about their business and Sanchez has definitely been the main inspiration. Expect him to spearhead the Gunners to another positive result against the Potters.

Tottenham Hotspur V Crystal Palace. 3PM

Mauricio Pochettino’s men were dealt a harsh lesson at Stamford Bridge in midweek but they will be confident on their return to White Hart Lane as they prepare for another London derby.

Spurs have led at the interval in four of their seven home games this season and we think they’ll start strongly after Wednesday’s disappointment. Expect a big response from the hosts, who will look to make their superiority shine through.

HT/FT: Tottenham/Tottenham @ 11/8 with Betfred

Manchester City V Everton. 5:30PM

The champions seem to have finally got over their early season slump and Manuel Pellegrini’s men can keep the pressure up on Chelsea by recording another home win against Everton.

It’s been a stuttered season for the Toffees so far and we think they’ll come stuck once more at the Etihad. City claimed a 3-1 win in the corresponding fixture last term and a two-goal winning margin is quite a likely outcome this weekend.
