Football: Premier League Gameweek 26, European & EFL Best Bets

5 min

Ryan Cahill is on hand to summarise Adrian Clarke and Mark O’Haire’s best bets from this week’s featured games from our Premier League podcast…

It’s a strong slate of football throughout Europe this weekend, headlined by Sunday’s mouth-watering affair at Anfield as Jurgen Klopp’s Reds look to make ground in their top 4 charge as they entertain Erik Ten Hag’s title-contending United side.

We start with our four marquee games in the Premier League, followed by the usual EFL and European bets.

Topped off with the guys Long-Shots and Best Bets at the end.

Best of luck if having a bet, and enjoy the action…

Adrian Clarke’s Best Bet

Questioned if it could keep getting worse for Blackpool after slumping to yet another defeat last weekend, Mick McCarthy surprisingly uttered the words, “It can”.

He may well be right, too, as they host league toppers Burnley, who, quite frankly are making what is usually one of the more competitive leagues in Europe a walk in the park.

Adrian thinks they will have far too much for Blackpool and pile on the pressure for Mick as they continue their almost certain ascent back to the Premier League.

Recommended Bet: Blackpool v BURNLEY -0.5/1.0 (1.76)

Mark O’Haire’s Best Bet

Mark has been tearing it up in Ligue 1 this season, and he’s back to French waters once more.

Even going as far as to say this may be his best bet of the season. When Mark says that you have to take notice.

Montpellier host Angers on Sunday, and it is fair to say the away side are in complete disarray, all but set for relegation to Ligue 2.

With five away points from a possible thirty-six this campaign, Mark expects Montpellier to simply be too good for their struggling foes.
