Bet on Brighton to get survival boost with unexpected draw vs. Chelsea
No luck for the column over the weekend with Ruben Loftus-Cheek's last-gasp winner for Chelsea against Cardiff costing us a 9/2 winner. There's more Premier League action this week with Manchester City looking to reclaim top spot as they host Neil Warnock's side.
Running total: -£90.80
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer returns to Molineux, the scene of his side's shock FA Cup defeat to Wolves just a few short weeks ago. Since that defeat he's been handed the Old Trafford job on a permanent basis and the Red Devils remain right in the mix for a top-four finish. His Manchester United side are an even money chance to beat Wolves on Tuesday night and could benefit from Wolves having one eye on their forthcoming FA Cup semifinal against Watford. United have won nine of their 16 away games in the Premier League this season -- and all but one, at Arsenal, under Solskjaer on the road -- and can be trusted to claim what would be a priceless three points.
Selection: £5 on Manchester United to win at evens with bet365.
The First Goal Flutter
Alex Iwobi has chipped in with some crucial goals for Arsenal this season and he looks big at 17/2 to score first when the Gunners face Newcastle on Monday evening. Iwobi has been a real attacking threat for Arsenal down the left this term and while the youngster remains something of an enigma, he has the skill and pace to hurt the Magpies at the Emirates.
Selection: £2 on Iwobi to score first at 17/2 with bet365.
The Tasty Treble
Manchester City can return to the top of the Premier League by beating Cardiff and they are 4/6 to win to nil at the Etihad. Pep Guardiola's side have won an incredible 19 out of 20 games in 2019 and could yet land the Quadruple. Cardiff, whose survival chances suffered a body blow against Chelsea, will try to sneak a point but the logical call is for the English champions to win without conceding. Elsewhere, Tottenham look worthy favourites at 4/9 to beat Crystal Palace in the first game at their new stadium. Spurs played well against Liverpool and were only denied a deserved point at Anfield by a late own goal. Add in both teams to score at 4/6 when Watford host Fulham for a midweek treble paying just over 3/1 with bet365.
Selection: £4 on the treble at 3.01/1 with bet365.
The Euro Wager
Juventus have turned the Serie A title race into a procession once again this season and the Bianconeri should be too hot for Cagliari on Tuesday evening. Juve have claimed an impressive 37 points from 14 away games so far this season and look worth a punt at 13/8 to be winning at half-time and full-time in Sardinia.
Selection: £4 on Juventus - Juventus double result at 13/8 with bet365.
The Wildcard Tip
Chelsea look a million miles from their best at the moment and for this reason it could be worth having a speculative punt on Brighton at 11/1 when the teams meet on Wednesday. A win for the Seagulls would give their survival bid a real boost and they might just fancy the job after watching the Blues' lacklustre display at Cardiff.
Selection: £1 on Brighton to win at 11/1 with bet365.
