Jones Is aware of is again along with his Premier League predictions and betting angles and is backing Sheffield United to take a degree at West Ham.
West Ham vs Sheffield United, Monday 6pm
Ah, West Ham, the way you hassle me. Making an attempt to foretell match outcomes and ends in the Premier League is a troublesome job at the very best of instances however West Ham make it an unattainable one.
With Valentine’s Day upon us, my relationship with them have to be what it is wish to be single and dabbling on courting apps – it has been some time for this married man. It is pure mind-games with regards to the Hammers. One week, they flutter their eyes at me and rip by groups like Aston Villa and Crystal Palace with no downside. Do they need one thing long-term?
Then, they clean me. Placing in turgid shows just like the one at Fulham final weekend the place they appeared a boring mid-table crew that aren’t able to scoring many targets. I have no idea the place I stand.
My intestine is telling me to take them on at 4/6 right here with bettering and now dependable Sheffield United on the door, who’ve received six of their final 9 video games in all competitions. However to save lots of extra heartache, I’ll play the draw.
One space of curiosity from a punting perspective revolves round Declan Rice’s possibilities of scoring. Regardless of enjoying each minute of each recreation this season for the Hammers, Rice has but to search out the web and you’ll inform it is one thing that’s bothering the West Ham skipper, who has admitted he desires to grow to be a goalscoring midfielder. He is adequate, too.
The England midfielder goes up for each set-piece, has had seven photographs in his final seven Premier League video games and there’s an out of doors likelihood he simply may be on penalties within the absence of Mark Noble and possibly Michail Antonio, though West Ham have but to be awarded one this season. I think 28/1 underestimates his chances of opening the scoring here.
JONES KNOWS PREDICTS: 1-1
BETTING ANGLE: Declan Rice to score first (28/1 with Sky Bet)
What’s it wish to get a penalty?? We’re nonetheless ready for one at West Ham this season😃😂

Chelsea vs Newcastle, Monday 8pm, stay on Monday Evening Soccer
Newcastle and Thomas Tuchel had an enormous sliding doorways second in 2015. Tuchel – then supervisor of Mainz – was linked with the vacant Newcastle job in January 2015.
However the decision-makers determined to nominate John Carver till finish of season. Borussia Dortmund got here calling for Tuchel, and the remaining is historical past.
Six years later and Tuchel now faces Newcastle as Chelsea boss with a squad full of high quality and one that will have title ambitions this time subsequent season. I’m but to be totally satisfied although as they’ve but to face an assault able to asking them extreme questions. If Callum Wilson was match for Newcastle, I’d most likely have had a swing on the 12/1 for an away win. Chelsea shouldn’t be touched at 1/5 with Sky Wager however the match consequence and proper rating market signify no sturdy betting angles on this one as I am not satisfied Newcastle will likely be ruthless sufficient with their ending with out Wilson.
I actually assume they may give Chelsea a scare although enjoying their new-found courageous urgent recreation that enables their defence to push up the pitch.
Since switching to this diamond-like formation midway by their defeat to Leeds with Miguel Almiron enjoying within the pocket, Newcastle are averaging practically two targets a recreation and 14 photographs a recreation. This makes the 5/4 for them to have 9 or extra photographs at 5/4 very interesting and even the 12 or shots line at 11/2 should be given consideration.
One other betting angle to contemplate is Cesar Azpilicueta to choose up a reserving. He has been an ever-present for Tuchel within the Premier League on the fitting of a again three however is vulnerable to a late problem on a speedy opponent. Eberechi Eze, Ademola Lookman, Anwar El Ghazi and Heung-Min Son have all drawn bookings off the Spaniard this season and right here he has to take care of the scary prospect of retaining a lid on Allan Saint-Maximin.
For the reason that begin of final season no participant to have performed greater than 800 minutes averages extra dribbles per-game than the winger (9.14) with 14 opposition gamers in that point choosing up a reserving for fouling the flying Frenchman.
JONES KNOWS PREDICTS: 2-1
BETTING ANGLE: Cesar Azpilicueta to get carded (11/2 with Sky Bet)
BETTING ANGLE: Newcastle to have nine or more shots (5/4 with Sky Bet)
