THERE'S been loads of publicity for the lucky sods who backed Leicester on the anteposts at 5000-1 and doubling with Crystal Palace for the FA Cup would pay 500,000-1.

Cash out? You wouldn't have a chance – you be hounded out of the country by bookies stunned by the thought of giving away £1 million for a £2 speculative stake.

The sides meet at Selhurst Park today with the double now 8-1 at Ladbrokes – Leicester are a best 5-6 with William Hill to lift the title and Palace 17-4 with 888sport for the FA Cup ahead of a semi-final meeting with Watford.

Claudio Ranieri's the Tinkerman but rather than tinker with his personnel he's changed tact. Gone is the free-flowing football that won plaudits at the start of the season and in place is a stuff side that gives nothing away.

Remember the “1-0 to the Arsenal chants” – it's been 1-0 to Leicester in three of their last four and at home to Palace earlier in the season. I'm on Ranieri's men to edge this one at a best 31-20 with McBookie and 1-0 has a chance at 15-2 with McBookie

Palace have progressed to the FA Cup last four despite not winning in the Premier League since November 8 at Liverpool.

Spurs are beginning to look like Leicester's chief title rivals and face a tricky test on Sunday at home to an on-form Bournemouth side who are just about safe after three wins in a row.

The home looks too short at 4-7 at William Hill and the best I like best is both teams to score at 20-23 at boylesports.

Having crashed out of the FA Cup and Champions League in the space of four days the title is all Arsene Wenger has to chase but a gap of eight points looks too much – and they're no bankers at Everton today.

Last week my headline tip was Romelu Lukaku to score against Chelsea. He hit a double including a goal-of-the-month contender in a superb 2-0 victory.

The Toffees tend to play better against top sides and will be confident of at least avoiding defeat against the floundering Gunners. Everton are a best 17-10 at bet365 to win and 1-2 at Ladbrokes not to lose.

And 25-goal Lukaku must be backed to score again at 6-4 with Coral after netting five in his last four. To break the deadlock he is 9-2 at Ladbrokes and Coral.

At the other end of the scale Swansea must be taken at 7-10 with McBookie and Ladbrokes to beat a doomed Aston Villa.

In the Championship I'm all over Burnley at 13-20 to beat a Wolves side without an away win since new year and Sheffield Wednesday, 4-7 at McBookie, should take care of Charlton. Twenty-two goal hitman Andre Gray is 15-4 with Paddy Power to score first.

Millwall at home to Sheffield Utd and Walsall at home to Colchester look best bets in League One and in League Two I like Wimbledon at home to Jackie McNamara's York.

There are two massive derbies on Sunday – Man City v Man United and Newcastle and Sunderland – and I'll have full previews.
