SPURS ensured it wasn't a super Saturday for thousands of punters but hopefully it can be a smashing Sunday.

The Champions League new boys suffered one of the surprise defeats of the season when they went down to a Wigan side who had conceded 10 goals in their opening two games. It was a shock of seismic proportions but hey if everything went to plan there would be no bookies left in business.

But we don't want to add to their profits today with seven top-flight games taking place in England and Scotland.

Liverpool, and I can't use the word “banker”, are a best 1-4 with William Hill and 888sport at home to West Brom so better value could be to look at a first scorer. Steven Gerrard was one of those rested for the successful Europa League trip to Trabzonspor and the skipper is 5-1 with Bet365 to score first.

Man City demolished Liverpool at Eastlands on Monday. It was impressive show that marked them out as Champions League contenders but if they are serious about breaking into the top four they have to go to places like Sunderland and win. Steve Bruce's men often raise their game for the big guns but have started the season poorly and look there for the taking.

City are attractive at 10-11 with firms such as Ladbrokes and I'd consider over 2.5 goals at 11-10 with Bet365.

The Bolton v Birmingham has draw written all over it and I'm looking at under two goals at 4-6 with bodog.

Aston Villa suffered a Euro KO in midweek and must lift themselves for the visit of Everton. Caretaker boss Kevin MacDonald looks short of quality but Everton first away encounter saw them lose at Blackburn before a home draw with Wolves. I can see Davie Moyes' side taking something from the game but instead of backing them at a best 2-1 at Ladbrokes try Everton draw no bet at evens with Ladbrokes and Paddy Power.

To win Villa are 7-4 with William Hill and Everton 2-1 at Ladbrokes.

In the SPL, the jury will be out on Celtic after another Euro away disaster. Neil Lennon's side aim to bounce back after a 4-0 mauling by Utrecht with a visit to Motherwell. The Fir Park side also crashed out of Europe but were unlucky against Odense.

This result all depends on how Celtic react and they look a bit short at 8-13 with William Hill against Motherwell (5-1, Ladbrokes and Paddy Power).

The fixture traditionally produces goals so my bet is both team to score at totesport and Skybet.

Well-backed Aberdeen and Inverness let us down yesterday but I'm hoping Hibs help balance the books.

John Hughes' men beat Motherwell 3-2 away last week and can repeat the success at bottom dogs St Mirren. Hibs are 7-5 with William Hill.

And finally Hearts could take advantage of Dundee United's trip to Athens that saw the venue change twice. The Jambos look on the up under Jim Jefferies who has made good signings in Kevin Kyle and Stephen Elliott so they could edge this one. Hearts are a best 13-10 with Paddy Power with United 23-10 at William Hill and Blue Square. Ladbrokes go Hearts draw no bet at 8-13 if you have safety in mind.
