thumbnail Hello,

There are six Premier League games to choose from at 3pm on Saturday - Al Hain-Cole has picked out three of the best value bets for a handsome looking accumulator worth over 7/1

Premier League Treble
Manchester City
VS
Reading
Kick-off: 15:00 GMT
Tip: Over 2.5 goals at 17/50 (1.34) with Marathon Bet

After defeat in the derby prompted question marks over Manchester City's title credentials, the champions looked to be back to something like their fluid best in last weekend's easy win over Newcastle.

This should get the alarm bells ringing in Reading, as Brian McDermott's team have lost their last six league matches in a row and look certain to be consigned to the dreaded bottom spot at Christmas.

After conceding five at home to Arsenal on Monday, The Royals have now leaked more goals than any other side this season, and have let in 17 in the last six matches alone.

City, on the other hand, have outscored all but their Manchester rivals, and with Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero linking up to great effect, they look certain to add to their potentially all-important goal difference against their generous visitors.

The hosts are easily capable of racking up over 2.5 goals all by themselves, so odds of 17/50 (1.34) with Marathon Bet are not to be missed on that tally being exceeded at the Etihad.

West Ham
VS
Everton
Kick off: 15:00 GMT
Tip: Both teams to score at 4/5 (1.80) with Marathon Bet

Everton have won plenty of admirers for their enterprising start to the season, and David Moyes' men are looking like serious contenders for a European place this year.

The Toffees currently sit two points behind fourth-placed Tottenham, but would surely be higher still if it were not for some uncharacteristically careless defending that has seen them pick up just three clean sheets in 19 competitive matches this term.

Luckily for the back four, their attackers have hit the back of the net in all but one of those 19 games, and should unsettle a West Ham side that have kept only three clean sheets in the last 14 themselves.

This game looks likely to be a cracker, particularly as there have been goals at both ends in seven of the last eight at Upton Park, not to mention the last 13 consecutive matches for the Merseysiders.

A bet on both teams to score would have paid out in each of the last seven encounters between these two sides, and offers great value at 4/5 (1.80) here.

West Bromwich Albion
VS
Norwich City
Kick-off: 15:00 GMT
Draw at 13/5 (3.60) with Marathon Bet

After initially surpassing all expectations in his debut season in management, Steve Clarke is enduring his toughest test as West Brom boss so far, as his side are without a win in four games.

However, the canny Scotsman looks unfazed by The Baggies current predicament, and the solid but unspectacular 0-0 draw against West Ham in the last match demonstrates his determination to go back to basics in order to steady the ship.

The former Liverpool and Chelsea assistant will no doubt be wary of a Norwich side whose new boss, Chris Hughton, is also making a fantastic start, having led his team on a record-breaking 10-game unbeaten streak, and another tight game seems certain at The Hawthorns.

The recipe for the The Canaries' incredible run is a combination of irresistible home form mixed with some steady away performances, as Hughton's men have drawn four of those last five games on the road.

The visitors are sure to set their stall out in the same manner on Saturday, meaning that Clarke's men will probably have to settle for their second consecutive home draw, which is available at tantalising 13/5 (3.60) odds.
