IF yesterday was all about the fight for Champions League places and the battle to avoid the drop, Sunday is about the race for the title.

Man United are first up against Everton and should increase the gap at the top to eight points. But that should be cut once again to five after Man City tackle Wolves at Molineux.

United are no bigger than 4-11 with the likes of BetVictor, William Hill and Paddy Power to beat the Toffees at home and I like the chances of Wayne Rooney netting against his former side.

After banging in 10 in 10 games Rooney is 5-2 with Paddy Power and BetVictor and 4-7 at Coral to score.

You could understand if Everton are on a downer after their disappointing defeat to Liverpool in the FA Cup semi-final last weekend. I can't see them stopping the title charge but if you were back one man to score for the Goodison outfit it would Nikica Jelavic who hit the target at Wembley last week. He is 4-1 at Ladbrokes to net at any time.

City have rattled in 10 goals in their last two against West Brom and Norwich and must fancy their chances of recording another big result against the basement boys.

Wolves have conceded more goals at home than any side in the English leagues and have conceded 15 in six games as they struggle under the guidance of Terry Connor.

Some people will point to the fact they held Sunderland 0-0 at the Stadium of Light last week but the Teesiders have been off the boil and don't possess anyone of the quality of Sergio Aguero, Carlos Tevez or David Silva.

City are no bigger than 1-4 so for value look at the handicaps. They are 9-5 at Stan James minus two and 4-1 (various) minus three. Last week's hat-trick hero Tevez is 4-1 at unibet to score first with Aguero 3-1 (various).

Liverpool are also in action as they try to convert cup form into league points. A poor season has been rescued by reaching two cup finals and Kenny Dalglish will hope his men are inspired by last week's Wembley win.

I don't like backing the Reds at a biggest 1-2 with the likes of William Hill and Paddy Power but they should win.

In Scotland, Celtic are back in SPL action trying to finish the season well after being knocked out of the Scottish Cup last week.

The champions have won their last two in the league without conceding and I reckon they'll return to winning ways at Motherwell.

You can have 7-10 with BetVictor and William Hill on away win while Motherwell are 19-4 at BetVictor.

Gary Hooper is fighting Dundee United's Jon Daly to win the Golden Boot and is 9-2 at BetVictor and Betfred to break the deadlock.

Hearts failed to build on their Scottish Cup defeat of Celtic by losing to Rangers so how will Hibs cope after booking their final slot?

They saw Dunfermline reduce the gap at the bottom to six points yesterday so can't get complacent with a meeting against the Pars still to come.

With strikers Garry O'Connor and Leigh Griffiths, both on target at Hampden, I can see them edging a victory at home to Kilmarnock. They are a biggest 13-10 with William Hill and others and O'Connor is worth a look at 5-1 with Paddy Power to land the opener.

Both teams have scored in the last five meetings, including three this season which have totalled 11 goals. Stan James and Ladbrokes go 4-5 for both to net.


Rooney to score first

(5-2, Paddy Power)

Man City -2

(9-5, Stan James)

Hooper to score first

(9-2, BetVictor, Betfred)

Both to score at Hibs

(4-5, Stan James, Ladbrokes)

Leagues Tipped:

    Like the look of hibs tomorrow manager making all the right noises about their priorities and Killie, well their season finshed a few weeks ago.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Mitch, they’re getting there but still a bit to go and probably need another win to be safe.

  2. Mitch 12 years ago

    Hard to turn that concentration etc back on Mr F, Hibs on the other hand are right in the relegation fight and cup places are up for grabs. Do agree on the Man City handicap markets only nagging doubt is everyone’s going to be on them!

  3. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    I fancy a bit of Scott brown at 14/1 or 5/1 to score at anytime.

  4. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    I personally think man city -3 goals is a crazy bet. You need it to be 4-0, 5-0, 5-1 etc.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Chris, I’m big on -2 but if they’re in the mood it could go higher. I think it’s being looked at for some value and recent results o both sides.

  5. Martin 12 years ago

    I really fancy Hibs tomorrow, Killies season is over and with Hibs firepower they should have too much.

    I expect Celtic to make changes so not sure if Scott Brown will even start, if he does he makes no appeal anytime scorer at such short odds, his scoring record from open play is abysmal, you’d just really be relying on Celtic getting a penalty.

    For a goalscorer I’d quite fancy Dylan McGeough if he plays, you’d think with the league wrapped up young guys like that will feature and he was very bright when he came on against Hearts last week.

  6. callum Giffen 12 years ago

    Going motherwell +1 at 6/5. just think celtic will rest players and motherwell still have things to play for. score i would go 1- 0 motherwell . draw HT motherwell FT

  7. mitchell 12 years ago

    A think celtic will make changes today liverpool cant break teams down and struggle with pace ,man city could be a very tight game wolbes in last chance saloon, Hanover have alot of injuries so watch out ,

  8. Lee boyle 12 years ago

    Paddy McCourt to score anytime if he starts !!

  9. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    Celtic better get their finger out!!

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Chris, nice win for the bookies. I can’t imagine anyone, even his old man, will have backed Watt to score first for Celtic.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Chris, has our luck turned? Lecce 90th-minute goal to keep alive btts. Two out of two so far, three still to start.

  10. Alex walker 12 years ago

    Why chris. The league is over! Would never put money on a team that has already won the ldague!

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Alex, I hate backing sides with nothing to play for but sometimes it’s unavoidable.

  11. mitchell 12 years ago

    Much did chris bet ??? Hope hes got a good price and pay out ???

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Mitchell, I said nice win for the bookies. No on would have had Watt.

  12. Mitch 12 years ago

    Well humble pie time what on earth was I thinking trusting hibs, minus a goal man city to get out this weekend with the dundee utd profits intact.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Mitch, Hibs definitely a side on the not to trust list, a poor performance today.

  13. stephen miller 12 years ago

    Paul how many do man city have to win by for -2 to come up

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Need to win by three for -2 to come up.

  14. mitchell 12 years ago

    A wonder if the bookies will start putting 4-4 on the betting slips next season ????

  15. Mitch 12 years ago

    Skin if the teeth there with the -1 will give rest of Sundays games a miss now I think.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Mitch, should have scored a few at the end but looked nervy for a lot of the game which makes you think it’s still United’s title

  16. Mitch 12 years ago

    Agreed can’t see this City team getting over the line away to Mewcastle as well as home to Utd look like very difficult games for them.

  17. Joe Knotts 12 years ago

    Did ne1 read cascarinos column today on soccerbase?? Toothless toffees will fail to notch!! I honestly just read his stuff for comedy value. He’s a mightmare. We all expected a man utd win today but he went on about never expecting everton to score anywhere – has he not watched them in recent weeks – they and in particular jelavic have been on fire!! Had a wee touch on him today anytime @ 7/2.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Joe, strange comment to make. Jelavic has given Everton a new dimension and I talked him up in my preview but to be fair no one expected them to score four.
