Weekend Treble: Back the Saints, Arsenal and Bristol City

Friday 27th February 2015
The latest addition of the Treble Bet is a corker, with Southampton, Arsenal and Bristol City tasked with collecting the winnings.

On Saturday the Saints will be gunning to bounce back by beating West Brom, and in turn leap into the top-4, while League One leaders Bristol City will be looking to take on step closer to the title. The third and final pick comes at the Emirates where Arsenal will be expected to continue their fine home form against an out-of-sorts Everton.

A £20 punt with Bet Victor returns a tasty £121.13 in winnings.

Saturday 28th February: West Bromwich Albion v Southampton - away win

Southampton suffered a heavy hit to their inspirational top-4 prospects last Sunday when they were beaten 2-0 by rivals Liverpool at Southampton, although the game wasn't without controversy. However, while the Saints have gone off the boil on home soil, their recent away from is very impressive. Ronald Koeman's troops have triumphed in their last four matches on the road, which includes an historic victory at Old Trafford.

The 5ht-placed Saints remain right in the mix for a top-4 finish, and on Saturday they have the chance to jump back up to 3rd, while a win will definitely guarantee the south coast side 4th spot, for 24 hours at least. Last season the Saints opened the campaign with a 1-0 win at the Hawthorns, and they look a decent bet at 11/2 to repeat this scoreline against a Baggies side who have failed to score in three of their last five top-flight matches.

Stat Attack

Southampton have won their last four away games.

West Brom have failed to score in three of their last five league games.

Saturday 28th February: Bristol City v Rochdale

Bristol City have been the stand-out side in League One this season, which the table-toppers justified on Tuesday with an impressive 3-1 win away to play-off hopefuls Doncaster Rovers. The victory - the club's 20th this term - catapulted the Robins five points clear at the top of the tree, as Steve Cotterill's men opened up a five point lead over 2nd-placed MK Dons, while they are seven points clear over Swindon in 3rd.

Next in Bristol City's sights are 13th-placed Rochdale - who have lost three in four - with the teams locking horns at Ashton Gate on Saturday afternoon. The Robins have been exceptional in front of their own support so far this campaign, winning 12 of their 16 home games and they will be expected to come out on top once again this weekend at 7/10 with Bet Victor.

Stat Attack:

Bristol City have won 12 of their 16 league home games this term.

Rochdale have lost three of their last four matches.

Sunday 1st March: Arsenal v Everton - home win

Arsenal were the biggest winners last weekend following defeats to top-4 rivals Man Utd and Southampton. The Gunners, who beat Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, leapfrogged the duo into 3rd spot; a position they will be keen to hold onto this weekend. Arsene Wenger's in-form side head into Sunday afternoon's match at home to Everton on the back of six wins from their last seven league games, while (at the time of writing) they have been successful in each of their last nine matches at the Emirates (in all competitions).

Everton may be excelling in Europe but their domestic form has been dire. The Toffees, who finished 5th last season, are enduring a torrid time in the league this term. Roberto Martinez's men currently sit 12th in the table, only six points and six places above the relegation zone, while they have only one win to their name in 10 top-flight games, six of which they have lost. With this in mind there is only one way to go, and that's an Arsenal win at 11/20 courtesy of William Hill.

Stat Attack

Arsenal have won six of their last seven Premier League games.

The Gunners are on a nine match winning streak at the Emirates.

Everton have lost six of their last 10 top-flight fixtures

Mick is a passionate fan of Coventry City and has watched from the sidelines (and had the privilege of seeing the inner workings during an exciting two years in corporate sales there) to see the once mighty Sky Blues fall from the Premier League, then fail to sparkle in the Championship, relegated from League One and wind up in League Two before winning the most important fixture in football competitions - The Checkatrade Trophy final followed by a heart-stopping promotion back to League One.

As well as supporting the Sky Blues, Mick appreciates all levels of football and loves a good book to keep himself entertained as well as a few hours on FIFA or Football Manager as time allows.

He also keeps an eye on all the major English leagues and regularly enjoys a flutter looking for that elusive treble!
