Saturday is here, and there’s a big day of action in store – and that’s just in the world of football!
There’s some big matches to look forward to across England and Europe, so our Betfred bloggers have put together a cheeky little treble that just can’t be ignored!
Cryptic Crosby’s Top Tip: West Brom (A) to beat Sunderland @ 23/10
West Brom have been unlucky in certain games this season and in reality, their performances have deserved more than eight points from their first six games.
In Rondon they have one of the in-form strikers in the league, as well as a more than capable Saido Berahino as back up on the bench if they need any more firepower.
Sunderland on the other hand took a 2-0 lead against Palace last week, only to end up losing 3-2 which just can’t be done if they stand any chance of surviving the drop.
The Mackems’ are a one man team with Jermaine Defoe their only hope, and if the former England international doesn’t get on the scoresheet, it’s unlikely the North-East side can get the win.
Tony Pulis will hugely fancy his chances against David Moyes this weekend, and at 23/10 for West Brom, so should you!
Lucky Luke’s Top Tip: Birmingham City to beat Blackburn Rovers @ 21/20
The Rovers have had a shocking start to the season, and a trip to St Andrews this weekend won’t have exactly been what they would have been wishing for.
Birmingham have lost just once this season, and take on Rovers having won two of their last three matches at home – with those two victories coming against early promotion contenders in Norwich City and Sheffield Wednesday.
That shows the level of talent at Birmingham this season, not forgetting the qualities of manager Gary Rowett, who has really got the Blues going places at the minute.
Birmingham are also boosted by the fact that they’ve lost just one of the last nine games at home to Rovers, a look a great bet this Saturday at 21/20.
No Hope Hill’s Top Tip – Sheffield United to beat Fleetwood @ 13/10
Chris Wilder’s Blades are firmly back on track in League One. After going through their first four games without registering a win, 16 points from a possible 18 have parachuted them into the play-off places. Dismissing some decent sides on that run, they can keep things going against Fleetwood this Saturday.
Uwe Rosler’s men seemed to have recruited reasonably well, but three straight defeats have made them a very opposable side at the moment. The Cod Army seem to be struggling defensively, having conceded two goals in all of their last four outings (four against MK Dons, too).
The prices do reflect two teams in contrasting patches of form, but value is still to be had on the reformed visitors at 13/10.
