Both teams to score
1pt 4-5 bet365

Nathan Ake (head) and Jefferson Lerma (rib) are back in contention.
Tammy Abraham (ankle) is a doubt and N'Golo Kante (muscle strain) and Christian Pulisic (groin) are sidelined.
Chelsea have the worst defensive record in the Premier League's top nine and their shaky rearguard points to a high-scoring outcome against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.
Frank Lampard's side look the likely winners but they are hard to trust at odds-on prices given their dodgy defence and the difficulty of recovering from the disappointment of Tuesday's 3-0 loss at home to Bayern Munich.
However, a punt on Bournemouth is even harder to justify. The Cherries have lost 12 of their last 16 Premier League games and are odds-on for the drop.
Chelsea have kept just one clean sheet in their last 11 away games.
Newcastle v Burnley
1pt 21-10 general

Valentino Lazaro is suspended but Jonjo Shelvey, Emil Krafth and Javi Manquillo are available after injury layoffs.
Chris Wood (hamstring) is available but Johann Berg Gudmundsson, Ashley Barnes and Matt Lowton remain sidelined.
Burnley have emerged as surprise contenders to qualify for a European place but their surge could be halted by a draw against Newcastle at St James' Park.
The Clarets won 3-0 at home to Bournemouth last Saturday but the result hinged on a controversial VAR decision to disallow a Cherries' goal and award a penalty at the other end.
They play a direct style and could be nullified by the defensive-minded Magpies, who usually operate with a rigid back three.
Newcastle are short of offensive quality and might struggle to create chances against well-organised opponents.
Six of the last eight games between Newcastle and Burnley have featured fewer than three goals.
West Ham v Southampton
Southampton draw no bet
1pt 10-11 Betfred
Back this tip with bet365
Tomas Soucek (hip) is ruled out for three weeks and Ryan Fredericks (shoulder) misses the next six weeks after undergoing surgery.
Kyle Walker-Peters is available after a calf strain but Nathan Redmond (hamstring) is out.
West Ham played well in a 3-2 defeat at Liverpool on Monday but they need points rather than plaudits and may struggle to get any against Southampton at the London Stadium.
A tense atmosphere is in store with West Ham fans anxious about their team's seven-match winless run which has left them in the relegation zone with just 11 games remaining.
Coping with the pressure will not be easy for the Hammers' players and any mistakes could be punished by Southampton, who are chasing their fifth win in six Premier League away games.
Southampton have won four of their last five away league fixtures.
