Football Tips: The best bets for this weekend from the Football…Only Bettor podcast team

On this week’s Football…Only Bettor Kevin Hatchard is joined by Mark O’Haire, Jake Osgathorpe and Seb Stafford-Bloor to preview the Premier League restart and best European action. Listen here and read on for their best bets…

Premier League outright bets

Mark: I’ve been looking at the top six finish market. Wolves will have benefited from the rest, they are consistent and are good value for a top six finish at [2.1].”

Jake: “I agree with Mark about Wolves. I also think Manchester United for a top four finish at [2.5] is a standout bet, with Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba coming back to strengthen them. They also have a fairly easy fixture list.”

Seb: “I’d worry about West Ham in a relegation battle at [3.4].”

Tottenham v Manchester United

Mark: “There are plenty of positives about United’s pre-lockdown form but they’re a little short here. You’d expect Spurs to be well-prepared. We need to oppose goals here. Under 2.5 goals at [2.02] would be my preferred bet but you could also go Spurs double chance and under 3.5 @ [2.02] too.”

Jake: “I need to do the opposite to Mark. Spurs have been poor and I am backing United at [2.52]. Marcus Rashford to score any time if he starts is a bet I like too.”

Norwich v Southampton

Mark: “I think we will see goals in this one. The stats suggest it should be an enjoyable match. Anything above [1.8] is value for over 2.5 goals.”

Brighton v Arsenal

Jake: “I want to oppose Arsenal who were pathetic against Man City. Brighton are winless in 2020 but their performances prior to the break, and their expected goals stats, are good so I recommend backing Brighton to win at [3.2] or on the Asian handicap +5.”

Everton v Liverpool

Mark: “I want to oppose goals in this match. Liverpool have kept clean sheet in 41% of their matches. Everton should be motivate to frustrate their local rivals. Liverpool not to lose and under 3.5 goals at [1.75] was the angle I liked.”

Aston Villa v Chelsea

Jake: “Chelsea are playing against the worst defence in the Premier League. I expect a comfortable Chelsea win. I’d back them -1.5 on the Asian Handicap at [2.37]. They’ll be raring to go.”

European football bets

Mark: “In the Bundesliga on Saturday, I’m interested in Paderborn v Borussia Monchengladbach. Paderborn have lost 12 times at home and they ship goals for fun. They’re playing a Glabach team that have plenty to play for so I’m backing Gladbach half-time/full-time at [1.9].”

Jake: “Under 2.5 Goals in Leipzig v Dortmund at [2.6] is a very interesting bet. Dortmund aren’t as clinical as they were earlier in the season.

“In the big game in Spain – Sevilla v Barcelona – I like Sevilla +0.5 on the Asian Handicap at around even money. I think they will avoid defeat in this crucial match.”
