Football: Premier League Gameweek 28, 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 in the return of our Premier League podcast…

Following the international break, the Premier League arrives as a welcome re-addition to our weekends.

It is sure to be a major week in the title race, with perhaps Liverpool having the biggest say of anyone outside the Top 2.

Travelling to the Etihad and welcoming Arsenal to Anfield next week means Jurgen Klopp’s men could decide whether the title stays in Manchester or relocates to London.

The guys broke down 4 of this weekend’s marquee fixtures, and then as always, we touched on EFL and Europe.

Rounded off with Long-Shots and Best Bets at the end!

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

Adrian Clarke’s Best Bet

A game we did not deep-dive into on the podcast has produced Adrian Clarke’s best bet.

Although Adrian thinks Chelsea are now beginning to turn the corner under Graham Potter’s stewardship, he can’t help but feel the market is underestimating Aston Villa here.

Villa themselves are now unbeaten in 4 domestically and Adrian expects them to keep it close at the Bridge on Sunday.

Recommended Bet: Chelsea v ASTON VILLA +1.0 (1.75)

Mark O’Haire’s Best Bet

The standout Bundesliga clash of the weekend is a mouth-watering affair at the top of the table, Bayern host Dortmund in a pulsating renewal of Der Klassiker.

But it is another one of this seasons star performers in Germany which has caught Mark’s eye, Union Berlin.

Having advocated for Union aplenty on the Podcast and in Mark’s insights column this season, he is going back to the well.

Mark is happy to take Union this weekend against a Stuttgart side in real trouble.
