Here’s a helping hand with the pick of this Saturday’s Premier League betting tips
Newcastle United vs Bournemouth (Saturday, 3pm)
Newcastle’s fine form came to a halt with a 0-1 defeat at Burnley last time out, but they are not the first side to come a cropper against Sean Dyche’s combative side and they won’t be the last either.
Otherwise it’s happy days for the Magpies, who are unbeaten in four at St James’ Park with three wins and a draw.
These are not such good times for Bournemouth, who have gone from being a top-ten side last term to the second lowest scorers in the division this.
Eddie Howe’s men have lost their attacking spark, netting just six times in ten outings. Seven defeats have duly followed, and that might just become eight on Saturday afternoon.

Huddersfield Town vs West Brom (Saturday, 3pm)
If you’ve got a ticket to the Huddersfield vs West Brom game then you are advised to take a handheld games console, a Sudoku puzzle book or your latest knitting project – anything to take your attention away from the dirge on show.
That’s slightly harsh on the Terriers, who produced a rousing display last time out at home against Manchester United, but you can’t quite see the players and fans getting up for this one in the same way.
Combined, these two sides have scored just 16 goals in 20 games, and the belligerent Tony Pulis won’t give a monkeys. He’s in the business of picking up points however he can, and he’ll have no qualms about playing his part in another snore-fest on Saturday.

West Ham vs Liverpool (Saturday, 5:30pm)
The final score read 2-2, and that’s all that matters really, but make no mistake West Ham were absolutely battered by Crystal Palace last week.
The Eagles won the total shots count 17-5, the shots on target duel 9-2, completed nearly 100 more passes than the Hammers and earned 11 corners to their opponents’ two.
That is symptomatic of Slaven Bilic’s side, whose only bright spark since September came in a 3-2 Carabao Cup win against a nowhere-near full strength Tottenham side.
Liverpool have a few choice attacking players absent here – Mane, Coutinho and Wijnaldum are all expected to miss out through injury, but even so the Reds have plenty in messrs Salah, Firmino and Sturridge to win handsomely at the Olympic Stadium.
