Huddersfield v West Ham

After a dip in form, West Ham have a great chance to make it back-to-back wins as they travel to lowly Huddersfield.

Yes, they also face a side who won last time out, but the Terriers needed a fortuitous own goal to help them secure their first Premier League win of the season, which came against a struggling Fulham.

The Terriers have been incredibly short in the final third so far this term and it could ultimately cost them their top-flight status.

With Monday's strike coming courtesy of Fulham's Timothy Fosu-Mensah, they have not scored at home since April. Furthermore, four of Town's five league goals in 2018/19 have come in the first half, so the Hammers to win the second half at a best price of 17/10 looks like your best bet.

The Hammers need to improve their away form and they will travel north with belief after scoring four past Burnley last time out, two of which came from summer signing Felipe Anderson.

It's 5/1 that Anderon scores in an away win and that's a nice way to supplement the standout bet on Saturday, which is West Ham to win the second half at just shy of 7/4.

Super 6 prediction: Huddersfield 0-2 West Ham (Sky Bet odds: 9/1)

Best bet: West Ham to win the second half at 17/10

Opta statistics

  • Huddersfield lost both of their Premier League meetings with West Ham last season – the Terriers were the only side the Hammers beat twice during 2017-18.
  • Huddersfield’s victory against Fulham last time out ended a run of 14 consecutive Premier League games without a win. They last won back-to-back games in the competition in February.
  • Huddersfield haven’t scored more than once in any of their last 21 Premier League games, netting just eight goals in total in that run.
  • West Ham are looking to secure back-to-back Premier League victories for the first time since January 2017.
  • West Ham have kept just one clean sheet in their last 14 Premier League away games, a 2-0 win at Leicester in May.
  • Huddersfield have scored a league-high 80% of their Premier League goals in the first half of games this season (4/5).
  • No Huddersfield player has scored at home in the Premier League since April (Tom Ince vs Watford), with their winner against Fulham last time out coming by virtue of an own goal.
  • Since the start of last season, Marko Arnautovic has been directly involved in 23 of West Ham’s 61 Premier League goals (16 goals, 7 assists) – more than twice as many as any other player at the club.

Newcastle v Bournemouth

Like Huddersfield, Newcastle recorded their first win of the season last time out and have another home game to record successive victories.

They face a tough task against a Bournemouth side flying high in sixth place, and the Cherries were unfortunate to lose at home to Manchester United last weekend. Their record on Tyneside since promotion to the Premier League is impressive, and they can make it three wins from three on Saturday.

Eddie Howe's men have won three of their five away games so far this term, while last week was the first time Newcastle have collected points at St James' Park and they have managed just three goals in front of their own fans.

With Jamaal Lascelles, Jonjo Shelvey and Yoshinori Muto doubts for the hosts, Bournemouth to win with over 1.5 total goals in the match at 23/10 is considered good value.

Better still are the odds-against quotes about the away side dominating the corner count.

Bournemouth are one of the league's most prominent corner takers (fourth, with 65 in total in 2018/19) and they are expected to be on the front foot with plenty of chances.

Super 6 prediction: Newcastle 0-2 Bournemouth (Sky Bet odds: 12/1)

Best bet: Most corners - Bournemouth at 11/10

Opta statistics

  • Newcastle have lost both of their Premier League matches against Bournemouth at St. James’ Park – their last home league win against the Cherries was in February 1990 in a second tier match.
  • Five of the last seven goals scored in Premier League fixtures between Newcastle and Bournemouth have been scored in the 80th minute or later.
  • Newcastle won their first Premier League match of the season against Watford last time out, and are looking for consecutive league wins for the first time since April.
  • Bournemouth are looking to secure three consecutive away league wins for the first time ever in the top-flight, last doing so in their final three away Championship games in 2014-15.
  • Bournemouth have won three of their five away league games this season, just one fewer than they managed across the whole of 2017-18 (4/19).
  • Only Harry Kane (5) has scored more away goals than Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson in the Premier League this season (4).
  • Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson has been involved in 10 goals in 11 Premier League games this season (6 goals, 4 assists) – as many as he was in 28 games in the competition last season (8 goals, 2 assists).

Southampton v Watford

It is always difficult betting on a match where one of the teams was on the wrong end of a drubbing last time out.

Mark Hughes' Southampton shipped six last weekend, albeit against free-scoring champions Manchester City, and he will be looking for a response.

Saints are without a win in their last seven league matches and, like Huddersfield and Newcastle, it is difficult to back them with any confidence at the moment.

Despite Southampton having a clean bill of health and Watford having a few absentees, the Hornets' expected XI is more than capable of getting a result on the south coast.

Watford boss Javi Gracia

The bookies favour the Saints, so a best price of just over 2/1 for a Watford win looks generous.

They lost on the road at Newcastle last week, but Javi Gracia can feel aggrieved at failing to come away with at least a point. They had more possession, corners and 16 shots in total. Just one of those was on target so plenty of shooting practice will have been on the agenda in Hertfordshire this week.

Southampton are one of the league's lowest scorers at home, so an away win to nil at just over 4/1 increases the odds nicely with Watford looking for their third clean sheet in four outings.

Watford draw no bet gives added insurance with above evens odds looking like good value. They should have enough to make it back-to-back wins on their travels to St Mary's.

Super 6 prediction: Southampton 0-1 Watford (Sky Bet odds: 15/2)

Best bet: Draw no bet - Watford at 59/50

Opta statistics

Charlie Austin fails to score against Newcastle

  • Southampton have lost just one of their last 10 matches against Watford in all competitions (W5 D4), though that defeat was at St. Mary’s in the Premier League last season.
  • Southampton are winless in their last seven Premier League games (D3 L4), scoring just three goals and conceding 16 in that run.
  • Southampton are winless in their five Premier League home games this season – they’ve never failed to win any of their first six at home in a single league season in the top four tiers of English football.
  • Six wins and 19 points from 11 games marks Watford’s best ever start to a top-flight campaign.
  • Southampton manager Mark Hughes has won his last four Premier League games against Watford, though all came while he was manager of Stoke.
  • Only Jose Mourinho (6) and Arsene Wenger (8) have won more Premier League games against Watford than Southampton boss Mark Hughes (5).
  • Southampton winger Nathan Redmond has been involved in five goals in his last four Premier League appearances against Watford (4 goals, 1 assist).
  • Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucouré has scored in all three of his Premier League appearances against Southampton (three goals); only two players have scored in their first four against the Saints – Andrew Cole (first five) and Dele Alli.
