Real Madrid vs Deportivo Alaves: Real Madrid win + Over 2.5 @2.08
Real Madrid have hit great form once again under Zinedine Zidane; unbeaten in their last seven matches, while winning five of those games. On the evidence of their rather unfortunate 2-2 draw against PSG in the Champions League, they seem as formidable as they come.
If that gives them cause to be positive, their record against their opponents on Saturday, Deportivo Alaves, gives them even more reasons to be thrilled.
Real Madrid have won 10 of their last 11 matches against Deportivo Alaves in all competitions, scoring at least three goals in nine of those 11 matches.
Alaves’ 1-0 win over Real Madrid was the only time there was less than three goals in the last six meetings between the sides.
Simply put, it’s a fixture Real Madrid tend to win, while contributing heavily to the bloodbath of goals.
And you get a cool 2.08 for backing a Real Madrid win and at least three goals…
Lille vs Dijon: Lille win @1.53
Dijon have lost 15 of their last 18 away matches in Ligue 1. They’ve also failed to score in 15 of their last 18 games. If Lille had to handpick an opponent to play in their bit to get back to form, they couldn’t even pick Dijon. It’s a perfect match for Lille.
On Saturday at Stade Pierre Mauroy, Lille, with the third best home form in Ligue 1 and yet to taste defeat in their seven home games so far, will look to get back on track against a Dijon side they’ve bested in their last four meetings.
1.53 isn’t massive, but it isn’t a bad punt either.
Barry Town vs Newtown: Barry Town win @1.70
In Wales, there’s a decent 1.70 placed on a Barry Town win, as they host Newtown.
After a poor run which saw them lose their last three games, Barry Town bounced back in style last weekend, trouncing Penybont 3-0. Still placed second on the Welsh Premier League table, Barry Town will hope to back that up against their 8th placed visitors.
Newtown aren’t great travellers. While being mostly solid at home, they’ve already lost six of their eight away games, including their last three, and they have the fourth worst away record.
Barry Town scored a 3-2 win when they met earlier in the season in Newtown. They look good for yet another three points.
Rangers vs Hearts: Rangers to win at HT & FT @1.65
Take away their loss to Celtic at Ibrox, and Rangers have been impeccable at home. The Gers have won 9 of their last 10 home games, and boast an enviable home record. Only bitter rivals, Celtic, have a better record in home matches.
Rangers’ opponents on Sunday, Hearts, have struggled on their travels, winning only one of their six away games, including losses in their last two.
Wins are almost a guarantee for Rangers in their recent home meetings against Hearts. Steven Gerrard’s men have won each of their last five meetings in all competitions, and eight of the last nine.
1.65 is what you get if you back Ranger to be winning at both halftime and full-time; something they’ve managed to do in seven of the last nine matches against Hearts.
If Craig Levein’s Hearts continue their poor run of failing to score in their last four away games, Rangers could blow them apart in no time.
Leicester vs Everton: Home Side Over 1.5 @1.68
The last few weeks have been full of turmoil for Everton and manager Marco Silva.
And now they face a Leicester City side that are currently in the sort of form they were when they won the Premier League in 2016.
The Foxes have won their last five home Premier League matches, scoring at least two goals in each of them. Everton meanwhile have lost four of their last five, conceding at least twice in three of those losses.
Leicester City are clear favourites for this one, with a win pegged a 1.65. But you can go even better and back Brendan Rodgers’ men to score at least twice at the King Power Stadium @1.68.
Liverpool vs Brighton & Hove Albion: Liverpool win @1.19
Liverpool don’t look like they’ll be losing at Anfield anytime soon. Backs against the wall vs Napoli in the Champions League, they still managed to grind out a crucial draw.
On Saturday afternoon, they’ll be looking to make it seven wins out of seven PL home games this season, when they host Brighton.
The last six meetings in all competitions have ended with Liverpool victorious. It’s hard to see a different outcome with so much at stake.
