With 12 winners from their last 17 selections, our Football Podcast team take aim for another profitable weekend!
Thanks to my late spring holidays, I decided to give Messrs Clarke & O’Haire the week off last weekend. We’re all rested and refreshed ahead of a busy couple of weeks, and I’m exceptionally excited about what they’re bringing to the table this weekend.
Man City vs Chelsea
We kick things off at the Etihad for a Champions League Final dress rehearsal. Ordinarily, I’d be thinking this would be a bit of a ‘keep your powder dry’ type situation, but as both Adrian and Mark point out, Chelsea in particular need to keep their recent positive momentum going as they chase a Champions League spot.
While Adrian made a solid case for Tuchels men with a 0.5 start, we decided to repeat our FA Cup semi-final selection of Under 2.5 goals.
Recommended Bet – Under 2.5 Goals (1.75)
West Ham vs Everton
Slightly mixed opinions here, so we decided to split the difference. Mark really likes Both Teams To Score at the London Stadium.
Recommended Bet – BTTS YES (1.8)
Meanwhile, Adrian gives a vote of confidence for the Toffees to leave East London with at least a draw:
Recommended Bet – Everton +0.0/0.5 (1.8)
Leeds vs Tottenham
One swallow doesn’t make a summer, and in turn, Tottenham’s 4-0 win over a beleaguered Sheffield United side does not suddenly make them world-beaters. Adrian, however, is convinced that they’ll have too much for the Yorkshire men in this one:
Recommended Bet – Tottenham to win & Under 3.5 (3.2)
Derby vs Sheffield Wednesday
Any other day of the week, I’d suspect the lads would be all over the under in this one, but there’s a proper chance this game may be actually bonkers, especially in the second half.
Here, the basic rule of thumb is that if it’s 0-0 at Half Time back over 1.5 goals!
Recommended Bet – Second Half To Be The Highest Scoring Half
- Newport (1.9)
- Barca Atletico U 2.5 (2.03)
- Madrid Sevilla U 2.5 (2.06) Mark’s Best Bet
- Scunthorpe Stevenage U 2.0/2.5 (1.85) Adrian’s Best Bet
