Another close call…
Last time we were with you, I brought to your attention that every treble I’ve picked out so far has resulted in two-out-of-three teams landing.
Well, I’ve somehow managed it again, with a draw between Wolves and Southampton being the result that let me down.
Hopefully, we can get over the line this weekend!

Newcastle United vs Bournemouth
Our first pick this week comes from St. James’ Park as Newcastle host Bournemouth.
The Toon Army have drawn four of their last five games, and currently sit 11th in the table. However, they’ve only lost one game at home in 2022 – and even that was a narrow 1-0 defeat to Liverpool.
Bournemouth have picked up four points from a possible six since parting ways with Scott Parker, and the fantastic comeback against Nottingham Forest last time out represents a solid start for stand-in manager Gary O’Neil.
The alarming statistic for the Cherries is that they’ve conceded at least two goals in all of their away games this season – including against Norwich in a EFL Cup clash.
It’s difficult to look past Newcastle at home, so we’re going for a Magpies win at 9/20.
Norwich City vs West Bromwich Albion
Our second pick comes from the Championship as Norwich take on West Brom at Carrow Road.
The Canaries are looking to record a seventh successive victory here, scoring 13 times in the process. They’ve already collected 13 points from their five home games this season, so the odds are in their favour here.
West Brom have endured a difficult start to the season, and haven’t won in the league since the the 5-2 triumph over Hull back on the 20th August.
The Baggies have netted in their last five league games but they’ve conceded nine goals at the other end suggesting they may have their work cut out against a free-scoring Norwich side.
Canaries win for me, at 6/5.
Preston North End vs Sheffield United
Our final pick comes from Deepdale Stadium as Preston host Sheffield United.
League leaders Sheffield United will look to extend their unbeaten run to nine league games here, while Preston came from behind to earn a draw with Burnley last time out.
Preston went unbeaten in their first six league outings without conceding a single goal but only managed to score one at the other end. In fact, they’ve only scored three all season so far.
They face a tough test here trying to keep out the league leaders, as Sheffield United are looking for their fourth win on the bounce.
The Blades have won their last two games on the road, and will look to continue building momentum and establish a bigger lead at the top of the table.
Sheffield United win at 13/10.
