IT’S already been a busy day on the sports thread with Lewis Hamilton winning the Chinese Grand Prix and Lee Westwood the Malaysian Open as predicted by our man Ace Venturer.
There’s a busy day of tennis, snooker and rugby before the US sports action gets under way.
IT was a pretty difficult Saturday after two good ones but with some gems thrown in. Dundee beat me up big style and I didn’t see that one coming.
The Championship leaders at relegated Morton should have been a comfortable away win to bring up the treble and while I didn’t back Chelsea to beat Sunderland that would have tripped up plenty of punters.
Carrow Road, Sunday, 12pm
IF Sunderland can win at Chelsea anything can happen in football – maybe Liverpool will be crowned champions after an absence of 24 years.
Last week I tentatively tipped Liverpool to beat Man City and said it would be the day we discovered if Brendan Rodgers’s side could all the way.
MY so-called bread and butter tips – five homes, top treble and super single – have won the last two Saturdays and I’d love to make it three in a row.
However, being the Easter holiday the card has a bit of an imbalanced look to it and it definitely feels a tougher card so don’t raise the stakes.

OWEN SCOTT didn’t jinx Clydebank last week but he did put a curse on his own side – so that will teach him. Neither he nor McBookie’s Paul Petrie landed winners so in the season-long challenge Paul remains out in front on £317.10 with William Hill’s Owen trailing on £224.18.
Here’s what the duo are taking this weekend – and I’m pleased to see Bankies left out although they should beat Kilbirnie at home.
