Football: Premier League Gameweek 4 | EFL | Europe | Best Bets

4 min

Ryan Cahill summarises all the picks from this week’s football podcast featuring the dream team of Mark O’Haire and Adrian Clarke…

After 3 weeks of the Season, Manchester City sit 2 points clear atop the Premier League table, the only side remaining with a 100% record, perhaps an ominous sign for those below.

It is a stacked Premier League card this week with the marquee fixture coming from North London where Arsenal host Manchester United, which should be an intense affair after a summer “friendly” between the two turned dark.

Elsewhere, Brighton entertain Newcastle on Saturday evening and Liverpool welcome a rampant Aston Villa to Anfield.

Best of luck if you are having a bet and do remember to gamble responsibly!

Adrian Clarke’s Best Bet

As long-time listeners are well aware EFL Under’s and Adrian Clarke go hand in hand. Therefore, you take notice when Adrian has one as his best bet.

He is expecting a dull, drab affair when Shrewsbury travel to Brunton Park on Saturday and is happy to take what looks a tasty price on Under 2.5.

Recommended Bet: Carlisle vs Shrewsbury Under 2.5 Goals (1.9)

Mark O’Haire’s Best Bet

After Botofogo obliged for Mark last weekend he is now 3 for 3 on Best Bets this season!

There’s no sitting back and relaxing for Mark though as he’s off to the goal-filled shores of France for an all too familiar bet.

Expect goals and entertainment as 6th place Rennes travel to the Stade Francis Le Blé to face 4th placed Brest.
