FT - So that's that for another entertaining afternoon in the 3pm kick-offs. We've had a few in-play winners here - Rondon to score a brace and Norwich to win against Millwall - alongside George's winning tips in the Premier League preview - Bournemouth most corners alongside West Ham winning the second-half - and there is still plenty of time to check out our tips for the late games. Head on over to our football page to read the reviews for all of today's action and remember to send in those winning bet slips to us at @SportingLifeFC on Twitter! In case you haven't seen them yet, here are the final scores in England's top division:
- Cardiff 2-1 Brighton
- Huddersfield 1-1 West Ham
- Leicester 0-0 Burnley
- Newcastle 2-1 Bournemouth
- Southampton 1-1 Watford
90+8' - NORWICH HAVE WON IT IN THE LAST SECONDS!
What a game! The Canaries are 4-3 up! What a game!
FT - Right then, onto the late kick-offs. Leeds taking on West Brom and I've found two big-priced bets to consider backing as Marcelo Bielsa's men aim to return to the top of the table. Click on the image below to view the full preview.
FT - No is the answer to that, it finishes 1-1 at the John Smith's Stadium and Huddersfield pick up another point.
88' - 📸 Can West Ham grab a winner?
86' - Norwich were 2-1 up, they're now 3-2 down to a Millwall side who are poor away from home... 😳
84' - 6⃣ SUPER SIX UPDATE! 6⃣
VILLA HAVE ANOTHER! Not a good afternoon for Frank Lampard's Derby County™️
79' - COMEBACK KLAXON! 🚨
Hull were 2-0 down at half-time, they now lead 3-2! What a turnaround by Nigel Adkins' men!
79' - 6⃣ SUPER SIX UPDATE! 6⃣
Villa have another! Tammy Abraham makes it two and that should be victory for the visitors.
75' - 👀 TIPS UPDATE! 👀
Well, well, well - Felipe Anderson equalises for West Ham! That's great news for our West Ham to win the second-half and Anderson score/win in the Premier League tips. Can the Hammers grab another? 🤞
75' - 6⃣ SUPER SIX UPDATE! 6⃣
A HUGE goal at Pride Park as Villa lead! John McGinn's powerful header has put Dean Smith's men ahead away from home.
65' - 👀 TIPS UPDATE! 👀
This game is a bit behind the others due to a length injury break in the first-half. However, Bournemouth currently winning the corner count 6-5 which is good news for George's suggestion in the 3pm Premier League tips.
58' - 📝 SL ACCA UPDATE! 📝
It's 1-1 at Norwich and the Canaries have just had a penalty saved! So close! Daniel Farke's side are having a positive second-half and find themselves at 11/8 to win this one and wrap up the three points. That looks a decent price with over 30 minutes of the game remaining.
55' - 📸 Jefferson Lerma scores for Bournemouth. They're currently 2-1 down at St. James' Park
52' - By the sounds of it, West Ham have made a positive start to the second-half - that Hogg to be carded suggestion is out to 6/1 if you fancy it, he's played every minute of the Terriers' last five league games.
48' - Bad news for Sporting Life's Dom, his beloved Bradford are bottom of the Sky Bet League One table and down 1-0 away at National League outfit Aldershot in the FA Cup 🤦♂️. The hosts are even money to have over 1.5 goals in the match and pile further misery on the Bantams.
HT - We have, of course, got tips for the late kick-offs in both the Premier League and the Sky Bet Championship. Click on the image below to head over to our tips page and see what we fancy 👇
HT - Right, I've had a little look around for some in-play bets to consider for the second-half. Over at the John Smith's Stadium, there have already been two yellow cards shown by Chris Kavanagh. Jonathan Hogg committed one foul in that first-half and could commit more as West Ham look for an equaliser. The 11/2 on offer with Sky Bet for Hogg to be shown a card looks great value.
45+ - 6⃣ SUPER SIX UPDATE! 6⃣
Jefferson Lerma has pulled one back for Bournemouth in the sixth-minute of first-half added time! Although Newcastle almost immediately restored their two-goal lead.
HT - Plenty of half-time scores coming in now. There hasn't been many goals in the top two divisions which could be killing a few goal accas. Newcastle's strong first-half performance has ended a lot of Super 6 chances...
45' - Fancy a player sponsorship? He's got a brace!
44' - 6⃣ SUPER SIX UPDATE! 6⃣
Hugill is in fine form today. He's doubled his tally and doubled Middlesbrough's lead. They're 2-0 up against Wigan.
43' - WHAT A BET THIS COULD BE IF IT LANDS!
41' - 6⃣ SUPER SIX UPDATE! 6⃣
Did anyone back the Rondon brace at 3/1 as suggested earlier on? Good news if you did, he's put Newcastle 2-0 up!
40' - 6⃣ SUPER SIX UPDATE! 6⃣
Jordan Hugill has scored from the penalty spot and Middlesbrough are winning 1-0!
36' - Gerard Deulofeu has had three attempts on goal for Watford with two being on target. The Hornets are enjoying 57% possession and are pushing for that equaliser. He's 15/2 to score the second goal and put Watford on level terms.
30' - 📸 Alex Pritchard scores to give Huddersfield the lead against West Ham
28' - 📝 SL ACCA UPDATE! 📝
Norwich are a strong side at home, Millwall have struggled away. Despite that Millwall have the lead! Still plenty of time for Norwich to turn it around though 🤞
21' - 6⃣ SUPER SIX UPDATE! 6⃣
Gabbiadini has given Southampton the lead against Watford! That one seemed a pretty even contest prior to the goal.
18' - Having a little browse of the in-play stats and my attention was caught by Steve Mounie. The Huddersfield striker has had two shots on target already and the Terriers are enjoying 61% possession. Sky Bet have Mounie to score the second goal at 7/1 if you're interested, might be worth investigating at that price?
14' - Good news if you're on the over 2.5 goals/BTTS in Reading v Ipswich. The Tractor Boys are 2-1 up!
11' - 6⃣ SUPER SIX UPDATE! 6⃣
Newcastle lead thanks to Rondon's effort. He's already has three efforts on goal in the opening exchanges (two on target) and Sky Bet have him at 3/1 to score a brace. Looks a good price considering his impact already!
7' - 6⃣ SUPER SIX UPDATE! 6⃣
Alex Pritchard gives Huddersfield the lead! The lads on Soccer Saturday were discussing how he needs to contribute more goals for the Terriers and, of course, he scores in the very early stages...
6' - First goal of the afternoon goes to Blackpool! Joe Dodoo scores after just three minutes. Advantage to the away team in that FA Cup clash.
2' - The Opta facts are in from the early kick-off in the Premier League 👀
- This is the second time a Neil Warnock side have won in the 90th minute of a Premier League game and the first time since September 2006 (Phil Jagielka for Sheff Utd vs Middlesbrough).
- Brighton have won just one of their last 20 Premier League matches away from home (D5 L14), with that victory coming against Newcastle last month.
- Cardiff have conceded the first goal of the game on more occasions than any other team in the Premier League this season (9).
- 11 of Lewis Dunk’s 13 league goals for Brighton have been headers.
- Cardiff’s Callum Paterson has scored in three of his last four league appearances (3 goals), after netting in just one of his previous 14 (1 goal).
- Brighton’s Dale Stephens was shown a red card in a league game for the first time since September 2016 vs Ipswich.

- Cardiff vs Brighton became the 100th different fixture to have been played in all four divisions of the English Football League.
15:00 - ⌚️ KICK-OFF! Best of luck everyone - we're underway
14:56 - Get in touch on Twitter (@SportingLifeFC) with your bet slips and let us know what you're backing this afternoon! 🐦
14:53 - 🤞 that Aden Flint finds the net for Middlesbrough! Still time to check out my full EFL betting preview here for the kick-offs in SEVEN minutes time.
14:48 - Still time to get your Super 6 predictions in ahead of kick-off shortly. I'm feeling confident looking at mine, that said I'm sure I say this every Saturday before ending up nowhere near the top. You've got to have hope though? Right?
14:42 - Time to explore George's Premier League best bets again. He says that 'Better still are the odds-against quotes about the away side dominating the corner count.
Bournemouth are one of the league's most prominent corner takers (fourth, with 65 in total in 2018/19) and they are expected to be on the front foot with plenty of chances.'
It makes Bournemouth to have the most corners in this game decent value at 11/10. Click on the image below to check out his full preview.
14:36 - The Steel City derby last night saw United on the front foot throughout. It ended up being 0-0, although the Blades missed a golden opportunity to take the lead early on.
14:30 - If you fancy a quick listen to our Best Bets podcast you still have time ahead of kick-off. Ben Coley takes a journey around the Sporting Life office to get the best bets from all of our experts. I don't feature in this one I'm afraid, but I'm sure it's still good...
14:26 - Bamba has won it for Cardiff! The Bluebirds are now up to 16th in the Premier League standings ahead of the 3pm games, two points clear of the drop zone.
14:23 - Who loves a good FA Cup upset? Well you're going to have to wait a bit longer as Portsmouth have comfortably beaten National League side Maidenhead 4-0 away from home.
14:21 - SOL BAMBA STRIKES LATE FOR CARDIFF! They've capitalised on the extra man and have scored in the 89th minute to go 2-1 up. Bamba tried the overhead kick (!!!!!) which hit the post (!!!!!), the follow up hit the bar before Bamba has another attempt that finds the top corner from yards out. Could be a huge goal in Cardiff's season, that.
14:19 - Just had a quick scout around for the EFL team news. The good news is Aden Flint starts for Middlesbrough and Marco Stiepermann is back in the starting XI for Norwich.
14:17 – I agree with George and have backed a West Ham victory as part of my Super 6 predictions. Also fancy an away win for Watford as well. Quick heads-up too, when you’ve submitted your predictions make sure you go to ‘Head to Head’ at the top and Challenge Jeff! If you get more points than him, you are in with a chance of winning a free large pizza from Dominos. After a big night watching our darts man Chris Hammer playing in his first tournament, a bit of pizza sounds fantastic right now.
14:13 – As usual, I’m on the Sky Bet EFL tips for today. The FA Cup may mean that we’ve temporarily lost Leagues One and Two, but I’ve done the research and found four best bets to back in the Championship. There’s a couple of goalscorers in there, alongside corners and cards too. All of the prices provide great value as singles but if you’re feeling confident, an ambitious four-fold would give you some big odds! Click on the image below to read the full preview.
