MANCHESTER CITY have been playing catch up in the Premier League title race for the last few months but have the chance to return to the top of the pile today.

This could have been a dangerous weekend for all three title contenders with domestic action sandwiched between both legs of a European quarter-final.

But the fixtures computer has been kind to them, with struggling Luton Town coming to the Etihad, Liverpool hosting Crystal Palace and Arsenal taking on an Aston Villa side who are even more tired after a Thursday night European game.

Luton are a whopping 28/1 for a shock Etihad win while Pep Guardiola's men are a best 1/9 to go to the summit for 24 hours at least.

The City boss will probably make a few changes and Julian Alvarez looks decent value at 6/5 for anytime scorer (Bet365).

Manchester United put a dent in Liverpool's title bid last weekend but they were very lucky to escape with a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford.

Erik ten Hag's men now face a Bournemouth side who beat them 3-0 at the Theatre of Screams and it says everything about United's troubles that the Cherries are favourites at 6/4.

Bournemouth have been averaging around 10 corners in their last four home games so backing over 6.5 flag kicks for Andoni Iraola's men looks good value at 6/5 (W Hill).

The lunchtime game should be a cracker as Tottenham Hotspur head to Newcastle, with both sides desperate for a win in the chase for European places. Goals should be guaranteed in this one and over 1.5 first-half strikes pays evens with Bet365.

Leeds United have been stumbling of late in the Championship title race but should get back on track at home to a Blackburn side who shipped five goals in midweek.

Daniel Farke's men are 4/11 hot favourites but backing them to be winning at half-time and full-time boosts the odds to evens (BoyleSports).

Title rivals Ipswich Town are 17/20 to beat Middlesbrough at home but that isn't appealing with Boro on an eight-game unbeaten run. Try the half-time draw at 31/20 (VBet).

Portsmouth can win promotion back to the Championship if they win today at Bolton but it's far from a gimme with their hosts sitting third in League One.

Bolton have netted five in their last two at home so combining BTTS with over 2.5 goals looks the shout at 11/10 with most firms.

In Scotland, SPFL bosses will be praying Dundee win at Aberdeen to ensure they can split the league before the Dark Blues' rearranged fixture with Rangers can finally be played.

But chaos is Scottish football's speciality so I'd imagine the Dons will triumph at Pittodrie to keep the saga rolling on. They've picked up a little under Peter Leven and are 21/20 (Coral) to win.

Motherwell host Hibernian with both teams looking to jump above Dundee into the top six with a win. That bodes well for an open game and combining BTTS with over 2.5 goals pays 21/20 (W Hill).

In the lower leagues, East Fife are flying in League Two and look decent value at 11/10 (Betway) for a home win over Bonnyrigg Rose.

  1. noob gambler 2 months ago

    A game I’m looking at for my single tomorrow I can’t find markets for right now but in Belarus Gomel are hosting Brest.
    It’s early in their season so it’s a little risky but 5/5 h2hs have gone o2.5. 3/5 have seen btts and Brest have won 4/5.
    I’m waiting on odds but Brest to win +o2.5mgls could appeal if the odds are decent

    • noob gambler 2 months ago

      Dinamo Minsk not Brest. Sorry

    • noob gambler 2 months ago

      Ignore all of that. Soccerway app had the fixture wrong

    • noob gambler 2 months ago

      Jeez. I was wrong. It’s Gomel-Brest women that are playing tomorrow. Think it’s time for me to go to bed. If I’m up early I will try again. Sorry folks for the huge mix up

  3. noob gambler 2 months ago

    I’ve tried to find a single but will have to just stick with Aussie tip I put up last night. I will be placing an Acca but it’s high risk and will only be a small stake. Feel free to pick one as a single.
    Btts+o2.5 on the following
    Tirol-bw Linz (high risk based on form)
    O2.5 ktp-mp mikkelin (high risk as 1st game of the season)
    Acca pays 30/1 good luck all

    Scottish treble if you don’t want the other 2 pays 6.3/1

  8. PD50 2 months ago

    Sydney v Western Sydney Wanderers 10:45

    Over 0 Sydney corners in first 10 minutes 21/20 Bet365

    Sydney have landed a corner within the first 10 minutes of their last nine home games. Hopefully they make it 10!

    • mmac 2 months ago

      It is 10/10, didn’t take that long, 3 minutes. Thanks, great shout

    • noob gambler 2 months ago

      Great shout pd50. What site do you use for your stats?

    • PD50 2 months ago

      Cheers both. Nice when the stats actually play out! is quite useful for me!

    • PD50 2 months ago

      Cheers both. Always useful when the stats follow through.

  9. Allyboy69 2 months ago

    East Fife look over priced at home to Bonnyrigg, only 11/10 but given the stats with Bonnyrigg no wins in 10 games and East Fife top of the form guide and going great guns since Dick Campbell went in (no coincidence IMO), it has to be a home win.

    East Fife win 11/10 NAP.

  10. noob gambler 2 months ago

    Early one for tomorrow.
    Brisbane roar-Newcastle.
    Btts+o2.5 @8/13
    Not great odds but still looking for better value. Could double it up with Leeds to score 2+ at home against Blackburn
    Double pays 1.26/1
    Might post a better value single later but I hate Saturdays as there are so many games

    Lost. No Brisbane goal. Finished 0-2

    • noob gambler 2 months ago

      Keep an eye on in game stats for the Sydney game. Regularly see goals after 70 minutes

  11. bigwigg 2 months ago

    Orkla vs Stromsgodset 2

    Over 4.5mgs @ 6/4 (bet365)

    Had expected this to be about evens or just over so can’t ignore this price and quite simply is my bet for today. 12 kick off so a nice early one, and I fully expect both teams to contribute here. League wise Orkla see an incredible amount of goals and here’s hoping that continues today.

    Good luck 🤞

      Thank you 🙏

  12. lossie jim 2 months ago

    PP, skybet and bet365 all offering boosts to evens for Isak or Gordon to have a sot, great bet to double your money with Newcastle at home to a dodgy spurs defence.

    6/4 with Hills

  22. noob gambler 2 months ago

    Absolute bag of trash. My main would’ve been Tirol-Linz but it seemed too risky. Hopefully it doesn’t come in

    Bournemouth v Man United
    13+ match corners 11/10
    4+ corners each team and 10+ booking points each team and BTTS in Stuttgart v Frankfurt (17:30) 7/4 Sky

    United’s last nine PL match corner count reads: 17, 15, 16, 13, 17, 19, 14, 18 and 13. Bournemouth, on their own have, have hit 9, 9, 11, 10, 11, 3(against City), 11 and 12 corners in their last eight home games.

    Bournemouth’s last 10 home matches have seen both teams receive cards. The last eight H2Hs between Stuttgart and Frankfurt have seen BTTS. Good luck

    Union comercio to score 8-11 NAP *****
    BTTS 11-10 NB ***
    BTTS and over 2.5 goals 7-4 **.
    All at BETWAY……….

    2 teams who are similar in standard and have been lurking in the bottom echelons of this league in recent times and this season is no exception with both in the bottom 4 after 10 games.

    *** Comercio have scored in the last 11 head to heads dating back to 2015.

    10 of these 11 seen BTTS.

    8 if these 11 seen BTTS and over 2.5 goals.

    *** All 5 here in allianza seen BTTS and over 2.5 goals with scores of 2-2. 1-3. 1-2. 4-1. 2-1

    Prediction 0-0 🤣🤣
    (This of course a joke but given the last 2 nights losers it wouldn’t surprise me.
    2-1 home win maybe ⚽

      Brilliant shout baggy. Full house

    • Baggy6870 2 months ago

      Cheers buddy, nice to finish the day with a decent winner.. 👌

  28. noob gambler 2 months ago

    Have a couple of singles for tomorrow and may place the double too. No odds for the second so will post when the markets are up but first I’m heading to Serbia.
    Crvena zvezda are hosting zeleznicar in a match I fully expect to be one sided.
    Crvena have now gone 7 games without conceding and I fully expect that run to continue at home against second bottom who have only won once in 9. While they do tend to score individual goals I think they will struggle against the tightest defence in the league.
    Crvena win to nil @5/6.

  29. TheMaster 2 months ago

    @admin any sign or word from Hullshaker? Bit worried not seen him on here fir weeks.

  30. noob gambler 2 months ago

    My second single sees me once again heading to Azerbaijan where sabah host qarabag.
    Starting with recent h2hs and it seems goals are fairly easy to come by with 5/6 seeing btts +o2.5. Their last 4 have seen 6,7,8 and 3. With the last 3 happening since January.
    Form also points to goals with sabah only failing to score once in 6 home games and qarabag seeing o2.5 in their last 10 away with btts in 8 of them.
    Still no odds but o2.5 is currently 4/6 so hopefully will be decent for btts+o2.5
