Just R5 on this Januworry treble could land you R258!
With midweek EPL fixtures looming large and many punters still suffering the effects of Janu-worry, we’ve decided to put together an absolute monster of a treble which equates to around 50/1.
Tuesday 29 January
Manchester United 1/4
Our first stop this week is Old Trafford, where red-hot Manchester United take on a wilting Burnley outfit. The two teams couldn’t have experienced more contrasting fortunes in the FA Cup this past weekend. Ole Gunnar Solskjær grabbed his eighth consecutive win at the United helm at the Emirates against Arsenal, as Alexis Sanchez, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial found the back of the net in a 3-1 win. Burnley, meanwhile, were hit for five without scoring themselves away at Manchester City.
Without going into too much detail here, Burnley have struggled away from home in what has been an underwhelming season. They’ve only managed to win twice on the road in 17 matches in all competitions. They’ve also conceded four or more goals in four of those matches (Fulham, Manchester City, West Ham and Manchester City again this past weekend). United are in superb scoring form at the minute and could easily put four or more past the Clarets on Tuesday. With this in mind, take Manchester United to score 4+ goals (MULTIGOALS HOME TEAM) at 22/10.
Crystal Palace 22/10
We’re off to the south coast next where a rejuvenated Southampton face off against a Crystal Palace outfit fresh off a 2-0 win over Tottenham in the FA Cup. The Saints have seen their season turned around by the arrival of Ralph Hasenhuttl who came in following the sacking of Mark Hughes. Crystal Palace, meanwhile, have been playing with an irresistible swagger of late. They’ve beaten Manchester City 3-2 at the Etihad, pushed Chelsea and Liverpool all the way in narrow defeats as well as having knocked Spurs out of the FA Cup.
Running through the Saints’ last few home games, wins against Arsenal and Everton are sandwiched between defeats by West Ham, Manchester City and a penalty shoot-out loss against Derby. You really do fancy Palace to get the job done. They’ve been playing excellent football of late and represent some pretty good value at 22/10.
We round off this treble in North London where Watford are set to travel to what will surely be a half-full Wembley. Spurs really are struggling at the moment, a lengthy injury list and poor results have seen Mauricio Pochettino’s men eliminated from both cups within the space of four days as they fight to keep hold of their top four aspirations. Watford, meanwhile, are a club on the up. They’ve only suffered one defeat in their last nine matches. Their superb league form has also seen them move up into seventh place on the standings, further underlining their status as the best of the rest so far.
This is exactly the type of game that Tottenham don’t need at the moment. As Spurs continue to wait for the completion of their new stadium, supporters of the club have shown their frustration by staying away from Wembley, which is infamously difficult to get out of after games. I’ll really stick my neck out here and go with Watford to snatch this. Even with the return of Son Heung Min, I reckon the hosts could struggle here. 4/1 is a massive price for Watford and pushes our longshot treble just north of 50/1 at 50.20/1.
