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

After a barren international break, Premier League football will once again have us glued to our seats this weekend.

Perhaps not a vintage gameweek, but there are still plenty of fascinating matchups to look forward to.

The lads broke down 4 of the marquee fixtures with the usual EFL and European Bets sections, too.

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

Adrian Clarke’s Best Bet

Adrian’s best bet takes us to North London as Spurs entertain Sheffield United

Rejuvenated by Ange-Ball, Adrian is expecting a comfortable Tottenham win as they welcome struggling Sheffield United.

Opting to add an over 2.5 total alongside the win to make the price a bit juicier.

Recommended Bet: TOTTENHAM & OVER 2.5 v Sheffield United (1.79)

Mark O’Haire’s Best Bet

Mark’s best bet takes us to the top-scoring league in Europe, the Bundesliga.

Yes, you’ve guessed it, Mark is going back to the well for goals.

Mainz host Stuttgart in what Mark expects to be an attacking affair, as alluded to on the pod whenever you can get a 2.5 total in the league given the goal average, you should sit up and take notice.
