Mark O’Haire’s Best Bet

This is a rare Premier League selection for Mark O’Haire’s best bet across a full football card around Europe.

Maybe that’s a tip in itself?

He likes goals, goals and more goals as under-pressure Liverpool travel to Brighton, who have been leaking goals at home left, right and centre.

Recommended Bet: Brighton v Liverpool – OVER 2.5/3.0 Goals (1.75)

Adrian Clarke’s Best Bet

Leicester’s trip to the City Ground was a game we didn’t cover on the main slate this week.

Forest have been in good form of late and will be buoyed by their penalty shootout victory over Wolves midweek.

Leicester struggled at Newcastle, and their defence looks limited at best.

Expect goals in this one…

Recommended Bet: Forest v Leicester BTTS (1.81)

Miguel Delaney’s Best Bet

Miguel has generally stuck to the BTTS markets for many of his successful best bets this season, and he’s expecting a cagey game at Goodison Park.

Nathan Jones has struggled in the league since taking over Southampton bu two cup victories in a row will galvanise his side.

On the other hand, Frank Lampard is still under massive pressure at Everton so expect a pragmatic approach.

Miguel is looking at BTTS NO here at even money…

Recommended Bet: Everton v Southampton – BTTS NO (2.0)
