5 min

Our Football Podcast host Aidan O’Sullivan summarises what Adrian Clarke and Mark O’Haire are backing this week!

Five winners on last week’s podcast with some unlucky beats, most especially Adrian’s best bet (Under 2.5 in Arsenal vs Brighton), but id be hopeful of an even better return this week ?

*EFL games on Friday this week

Man City vs Liverpool (FA Cup)

“If there’s an edge to be had physically, it might be Liverpool” – Adrian Clarke

He was spot on in calling Liverpool with the +0.5 start last Sunday, and he’s happy to get them onside here in the draw no bet market:

Recommended Bet – Liverpool -0.0 (2.02)

Chelsea vs Crystal Palace (FA Cup)

Mark rightly highlights Palace’s solid record against the top dogs this year, and he expects a potentially cagey affair at Wembley on Sunday:

Recommended Bet – Under 2.5 goals (1.93)

Adrian Clarke’s Best Bet

43 points separate Forest Green and Barrow in the table, and while the leaders’ patchy form of late is a slight concern, AC fancies them to get the job done in this one:

Forest Green to beat Barrow (2.04)

Mark O’Haire’s Best Bet

A full breakdown of this bet can be found here but as ever Mark makes a compelling case for a European goals angle:

Recommended Bet – Both Teams To Score in St Etienne vs Brest (1.91)

Double Them Up

We’ve doubled up Mark, and Adrian’s this weekend at an enhanced price.

Newcastle vs Leicester

I was surprised to see Leicester at such a big price, but I had neglected to take into account the Foxes ‘ crucial Europa Conference tie on Thursday night versus PSV, so happy to side with Mark on this one:

Recommended Bet – Newcastle -0.0/0.5 (1.93)

Tottenham vs Brighton

Another win for an in-form clinical Spurs team but Brighton to make them work for it is the consensus play here:

Recommended Bet – Tottenham & under 4.5 goals (1.91)

Other Football Tips

Adrian: Sheff Utd -0.5/1.0 (1.75)
Adrian: Crewe Wimbledon BTTS (1.96)
Mark: Getafe +0.0/0.5 vs Villarreal (1.8)
