Sunderland v Burnley
Sunderland have won just one of their last 12 Premier League matches (W1 D6 L5).
Danny Ings has scored in each of his last three Premier League appearances.
Ashley Barnes has scored four goals from just six shots on target in the Premier League.
According to my system this match has the potential to be a ‘shock’ result of the weekend. There aren’t many stats to support this forecast but stats are just that – stats. My system considers all factors and variables.
Sunderland odds are bad value which sometimes means that the other teams’ odds represent value.
My system is both subjective and objective whilst also using data that is both qualitative and quantitative.
Verdict : Burnley @ 3.75 at Bookie BetVictor
Stoke v QPR
I feel that this is the game where QPR can at least get an away point.
Stoke will be missing key attacking threat Bojan who has bailed them out on more than one occasion this season.
Stoke have only won four out of 10 Barclays Premier League games at the Britannia this season, netting just 12 goals on home soil. (W4 D2 L4).
Niko Kranjcar has scored three goals in five Barclays Premier League games against Stoke including in both of his visits to the Britannia Stadium.
Stoke have won five of the 16 Premier League games Bojan has played. He has scored in four of those victories and none of the matches they didn’t win.
Verdict : QPR +0.5 @ 2.3 at Bookie Bet365
Hull v Newcastle
