Fifth and sixth meet in the Premier League today at Villa Park where a win for Aston Villa will take them back in to the Top 4.

Chasing them are Manchester United, who, if they are to sneak in to the Top 4 themselves, need to win this one. The Red Devils find themselves eight point behind today’s hosts.

Villa’s home form has been brilliant but they’ve lost their last two on their own turf so need to get back to winning way in front of their own fans.

United are aiming to win a fourth consecutive match for the first time this season and they appear to have found their mojo again in front of goal. They’ve hit 11 in their last four and Marcus Højlund has scored in each of those.

The last six meetings have finished 3-2, 1-0, 4-2, 3-1, 2-2 and 2-2 and we should goals today with Over 3.5 at 13/10.

Arsenal make the trip across London for a visit to West Ham in the earlier kick-off.

The Hammers have already beaten the Gunners twice this season so this one is far from a gimme for Mikel Arteta’s men.

Davie Moyes’ side are unbeaten in ten at home (W6 D4) and will fancy this today so don’t rule them out at 11/2 nor 6/4 on the Double Chance market.

Despite winning seven of their last eight and drawing the other there’s unrest at Celtic following a series of insipid performances. From hasn’t been great and St Mirren could smell blood in Paisley this afternoon.

Injuries haven’t helped Brendan Rodgers and again it’ll be a bit of a second-string back four that lines up for the Hoops.

Celtic won comfortably on their last visit to the SISMA Stadium but St Mirren had a few players out themselves at the start of the year. This time they’re going in to the game off the back of two good wins against Hibs and Dundee.

3/10 looks far too short for Celtic who edged past struggling Ross County, drew with Aberdeen last week and needed a last gasp penalty to win at Hibs in midweek.

Therefore the value is with St Mirren at 8/1 to dump the holders out of the Scottish Cup.

In the Premiership St Johnstone could make it a spectacular All Saints Double. Craig Levein’s men can overtake today’s opponents Dundee and move in to the top six with a win.

The former Scotland boss has made the Saints hard to beat and for a small stake the Double pays 33/1.

    18.00 PAOK Thessaloniki v AEK Athens
    4+ AEK Athens corners @ 1.80 (NAP)
    5+ AEK Athens corners @ 2.63
    6+ AEK Athens corners @ 4.00

    1st v 2nd in Greece and I am having another go at AEK Athens corners, hoping for better luck than last week.

    Since the hiring of Mathias Almeyda a year and a half ago, AEK Athens play a high-pressing, attacking system that usually results in a lot of corners (6, 13, 7, 8, 9, 9, 3, 9, 9 since December – 7, 9, 3, 9 in away games), including 8 against Panathinaikos (3rd) at home and 9 against Olympiakos (4th) away.

    PAOK don’t concede a lot of corners, especially against low-quality opponents (2, 6, 1, 2, 4, 2, 0, 7, 5 since December – 6, 2, 2, 5 at home), but they conceded 6 against Panathinaikos (3rd) in their last home game and 5 against Lamia (6th). They also conceded 4 away at the local derby against Aris (5th).

    In the last 6 H2H since Almeyda joined, AEK Athens have won 5, 5, 4, 1, 9 and 8 corners.

    All with Skybet – good luck today.

    Cards look the way forward at Getafe today. The hosts are Spain’s top offenders by some margin with 87Y & 8R in 23 outings.

    The man in the middle today is Alejandro Hernandez who is La Ligas most card happy referee this season,he’s handed out 58Y in 9 games at an average of 6.44 per match. He’s also dished out 4 reds in those 9 games, coincidentally Getafe & Vigo account for 2 of those 4 reds in their matches that Hernandez has been in charge.

    Both sides to be red carded 28/1

    St Mirren v Celtic Scottish Cup,

    Given the nature that this a Cup Tie important for both teams, i was surprised to see Bet365 going a very appealing 8/11 for over 2. 5 cards

    7/4 for over 3 cards…

    Arsenal Women v Man City Women 12:30
    Arsenal 20+ booking points 11/10 Sky
    Arsenal have picked up at least two yellows in their last five meetings with City. The two sides shared eight bookings in their WSL clash at Meadow Park in November. Four of last five H2Hs have also seen four or more cards so each team 20+ booking points at 7/4 (Sky) also worth considering. Good luck.

    * St Mirren v Celtic *

    this smells like a draw to me, so the value bets are

    Celtic to win in Extra Time at 11/1 (b365)
    St Mirren to win on penalties at 20/1 (Hills)

    Reasoning – if its a draw after 90 mins, Celtic will probably have to win in extra time because they are so poor at penalties, and the buddies will have a great chance if it goes to pens.

    GL with your bets.

    Bosnia & Herzegovina Cup 🇧🇦
    Zvijezda to score 6-4 BETWAY
    BTTS 12-5 HILLS

    Huge prices considering the 2 league games this season ended 4-2 and 2-1 to borac who are 1-16 to win today.

    The shots on goal stats in these games were 7-7 and 4-4 which shows despite this being top v bottom on league standings, there is hope of an away goal and it’s the magic of the cup after all 🤣
