In-play:

  • West Ham to score first at 6/4

It's been another day of drama in the Premier League. Click on the image above to read our full review of the action.


17:21 - 🔍 IN-PLAY ADVICE

Ok, not quite in-play but one for that late kick-off in the Championship. I've not done a full preview for this but my eye was caught on one RequestABet and that's over 2.5 goals and 2+ corners each team in each half at 7/1.

That game does have the potential to be an entertaining one with both sides keen to attack. That can see the ball deflected behind for corners too, every chance of a high count in that department too.

Best bet: Over 2.5 goals and 2+ corners each team in each half at 7/1


17:15 - 📝 TEAM NEWS

There's a late kick-off in the Sky Bet Championship where Stoke welcome West Brom.


17:11 - 🔴 LATE RED CARD

Well, it's just been confirmed that Kurt Zouma was shown a red card after the full-time whistle. He was already on a yellow, but was shown a second after a discussion with referee Lee Probert.

The day just gets worse for Everton...


17:08 - 🕵 PREMIER LEAGUE TIP

Sporting Life's Premier League preview
Click here to read the full preview

Paul Higham has already had one winner today, he's on tipping duty for the late kick-off in the Premier League. He explains:

"These games are so tough to call, but if you have a strong view either way then you're usually rewarded with some decent prices. There's been a lot to like about recent Burnley displays despite them drawing three out of the last four - and while Brighton are great at home they have had successive 0-0 draws, meaning a narrow loss is not exactly a stretch."

Best bet: Burnley to win at 3/1


17:02 - 👀 SUPER 6 UPDATE

Back into Sky Bet League One where it's Rochdale 0-0 Coventry. The Sky Blues are enjoying the better of the chances, also seeing more corners and possession. Coventry are 7/4 to score the next goal which is well worth considering.


16:20 - 🌩 GOAL FLASH

15:57 - 🔍 IN-PLAY ADVICE

Let's look for that third in-play winner of the afternoon then. Into the Sky Bet Championship where Preston hold a one-goal lead over Bolton. North End have seen 65% possession, five shots on/off target and had four corners. It's a game they are enjoying and look in a good position to grab another goal. Sky Bet have them at even money to score the second goal which is worth taking at that price.

Good news for those who got on the 2/1 in-play recommendation around ten minutes ago, Luton take the lead!


15:36 - 👀 SUPER 6 UPDATE

Mark Noble fires West Ham in front from the penalty spot! A nice 6/4 winning in-play suggestion in the first-half of this afternoon's 3pm games!


15:28 - 🔍 IN-PLAY ADVICE

Dropping down into Sky Bet League One where Luton have made a good start as expected against Wycombe. They are currently 2/1 to be winning at half-time, which looks decent value based on their four shots on target, three corners and 62% possession so far.


15:24 - 👀 SUPER 6 UPDATE

Oh Mane, Mane, do do do do do do...

Another look at George Pitts' best bet for Huddersfield v Arsenal...

"Huddersfield are the league's worst home side, scoring just five at the John Smith's Stadium all season.

"Unai Emery's Arsenal, meanwhile, are the only side in the top flight yet to keep a clean sheet away from home. Surely something has got to give, is this the game the north Londoners can end that poor run?

"They were 1-0 winners in the reverse fixture at the Emirates earlier this season, while it was the same scoreline in Arsene Wenger's farewell match on the final day of 2017/18 in West Yorkshire last May.

"Jan Siewert's side were beaten 5-0 at Chelsea last week and the Terriers have been terribly short in the final third this term. They have not scored in their last five games in all competitions and, at just below 17/10 price, Arsenal to win to nil looks like a real possibility here."

Best bet: Arsenal to win to nil at 17/9

Sean Maguire in action for Preston
Sean Maguire in action for Preston

Good news, Sean Maguire starts for Preston away at Bolton. He's a part of this weekend's Sky Bet EFL tips.

"One player who did catch the eye despite the goalless draw at Deepdale last Friday was Sean Maguire, with the attacking midfielder posing the biggest threat to the Rams goal.

"He's managed to feature in just ten league games after missing the majority of the season with injury, but he looks like a player returning to his best after a run of three starts.

"In that clash with Derby, he managed to register six shots in total, one of which was on target. That goes alongside at least a shot in each of the three games following his return.

"He's still waiting for that first goal this season, but as he continues to recover from that injury, it feels like now is the time that he will finally strike. His ten goals in 24 Championship games during the 2017/18 campaign shows how he is a player who can strike.

"If it wasn't for injury, the potential was there to exceed that tally. A fully-fit Maguire will help Preston in their push up the standings as the end of the season run-in approaches, and a general price of 23/10 for a goal anytime is worth backing in a game such as this."

Best bet: Sean Maguire to score anytime at 23/10


14:09 - 🌩 GOAL FLASH

  • Middlesbrough 1-0 Leeds - Lewis Wing

Leeds showing absolutely zero interest in reaching the Premier League with their results since Christmas. They go behind again away at Middlesbrough and it'll be a big ask to turn it around.

Luton's James Collins
Luton's James Collins

I've gone for Luton scoring three or more goals in what should be a convincing home victory over Wycombe today. These two Opta facts show that they are a side who know where the net is.

  • Luton have won more games (19) and scored more goals (61) than any other team in League One in 2018-19.
  • Luton striker James Collins is League One’s top scorer in the 2018-19 season with 18 goals, 44% of which have come during 2019 (eight in six appearances in 2019).

Best bet: Luton to score 3+ goals at 12/5

13:20 - 📺 HIGHLIGHTS

Some half-time viewing for you. It was an incredible game at Villa Park on Friday night as the home side came down from 3-0 down late on to earn a point against Sheffield United. The full highlights are available above.


13:17 - 🔍 IN-PLAY ADVICE

In the Sky Bet Championship, Middlesbrough are in action as they take on Leeds at the Riverside. The visitors have started well, stringing together some nice passing moves alongside enjoying a bit more of the ball. Sky Bet have Leeds at 10/11 to score the first goal which is worth considering at near even money.


13:15 - 🕵 PREMIER LEAGUE TIP

Michy Batshuayi: The Belgian makes his Crystal Palace debut
Michy Batshuayi: The Belgian makes his Crystal Palace debut

As ever, our man George Pitts is on Premier League tipping duty. He's picked out a goalscorer in Crystal Palace v West Ham:

"A price which catches the eye is on Michy Batshuayi, who is vying for a start after impressing on his debut following his arrival on loan from Chelsea.

"The Belgian came off the bench and played a role in Jeffrey Schlupp's late goal which sealed the win over the Cottagers. He had two shots during his eight-minute cameo and will want to impress here.

"Batshuayi, 25, possesses a real threat to opposition defences, with his speed and knack for getting in the right areas in the box. He may start from the bench but the 9/4 available on him anytime is worth a small stake, 7/2 in a score-and-win if you have confidence in the hosts."

Best bet: Michy Batshuayi to score anytime in Crystal Palace v West Ham at 9/4
