Claudio Yacob to be booked (3/1 – betvictor)
One has to take it on faith that Alan Irvine will select Yacob rather than Mulumbu to anchor the Baggies’ midfield, but I think the price is worth it. Either player will be replacing the suspended Craig Gardner who obviously accumulated a number of bookings in order to get suspended. The role Yacob will play is a box-to-box midfielder who commits necessary fouls when a break is on. With what looks sets to be a relatively fast Newcastle line-up, I think Yacob could get into some trouble. 3/1 is a standout price with Betvictor.
Berahino to score (2/1 – bwin)
It pains me to say it but 2/1 on the man who the Baggies rely on so much is a great price for him to find the net at home. The reason I say ‘at home’ is because 6/7 of his goals this year have come at the Hawthorns. Most firms go very close to evens so this needs snapping up.
Weekend treble: Burnley v Hull (both teams to score 10/11), Tottenham v Stoke (Draw – 3/1) and QPR v Man City (half time draw – 8/5). Odds 18/1
