It’s the final week of Premier League fixtures before the international fixtures and we’re including two selections in this huge 76/1 Saturday treble.
We’re combining our two Premier League picks with one selection from League Two and are hopeful that this BTTS & Win treble will see us smash BetVictor to the tune of over £750!
If it does win, we’ll have had worse weekends. Good luck.
Southampton V Burley
Relegation threatened Burnley picked up an incredible win over the champions last weekend and will firmly believe they’ve got a chance of survival. However, Sean Dyche knows that survival will largely hang on their form at Turf Moor and any away points will be considered a huge bonus. We cannot see them troubling Southampton at St Mary’s.
Nonetheless, the visiting Clarets will be in great spirits and that momentum can help them find the target against a Saints side that has struggled in recent weeks. However, Ronald Koeman has enjoyed a fantastic maiden campaign in English football and the Dutchman should inspire his side to another three points.
Southampton have netted an impressive 25 goals at home, winning eight of 15 games at St Mary’s and their quality should prevail against the lowly Clarets. The hosts play a brand of football that is bound to create chances and there is definitely enough quality in the final third to make those opportunities count.
Burnley have realised in recent weeks that they need goals and we think they’ll get on the scoresheet once more. Unfortunately, it might not be enough to avoid defeat.

Stoke City V Crystal Palace
Mark Hughes has worked wonders at the Britannia over the past two seasons and he’ll be hoping to weave his magic once more at the Potters look to overcome Alan Pardew’s Eagles.
Stoke might not score that many goals, and their defence is certainly more vulnerable than it was under Tony Pulis, but they continue to notch up the results and are now set for the best ever Premier League finish. Their success can largely be attributed to a fantastic record against those sides below them and we think that will continue against Palace.
However, you can never rule out Pardew’s side, especially as they’ve been scoring goals for fun. The visitors have failed to score just twice in 13 games under their new boss and we think they’ll hit the target here. Nevertheless, cracks are starting to appear defensively and the Potters will be ready to capitalise.
It has been a tremendous turnaround for Palace, who are now probably just two wins short of survival. Unfortunately for the travelling supporters, though, the points are unlikely to come at one of the Premier League’s most notoriously difficult away trips.

Plymouth Argyle V Newport County
A return of just one win in five has left Plymouth Argyle’s promotion hopes hanging by a thread but John Sheridan’s men could resurrect their aspirations by beating fellow play-off contenders Newport at Home Park.
In spite of their recent poor form, Plymouth’s home record still stands amongst the best in the division and they’ll be eager to add a 12 win of the campaign. A return of 27 goals is impressive and the firepower of Reuben Reid and Lewis Alessandra could provide the difference against the visiting Welshmen.
Newport have enjoyed vast improvements since Jimmy Dack succeeded Justin Edinburgh at the Rodney Parade helm. However, their away form has remained sketchy at best and we think they could be in for a long afternoon in Devon.
The visitors can take advantage of Plymouth’s low morale by scoring, but Sheridan will be certain to gee his men up for this one and we’re backing Argyle to get their play-off push back on track with an important win.
