Scunthorpe United v Bradford City Betting Tips: No shortage of goals at Glanford Park

Sunday’s League One match, Sky Sports once again showing their compassion for mothers on Mothers Day, is a play-off clash between Scunthorpe United and Bradford City. One of these sides could easily drop out the top six in their final seven games if they are not careful. Scunthorpe were in automatic promotion contention a couple of months back but a run of just one win since 28th January and five defeats in their last six mean they have slipped right down the pecking order into 5th and are now only inside the play-offs by four points. Where the Iron have…

England v Lithuania Betting Tips: Group leaders should have too much quality

After their friendly in Germany, England get down to real business as they host Lithuania in this World Cup qualifier at Wembley. England top Group F with a two-point cushion over Slovenia after a run of three wins and just one draw. Despite losing in the friendly against Germany on Wednesday night, there were positive signs from Gareth Southgate’s men which possibly show that there is a bit of light at the end of the long, dark tunnel that is English football. The Three Lions have been brilliant at the back in their World Cup qualification campaign so far and…

Scotland v Slovenia Betting Tips: Visitors can overcome a poor Scottish outfit

Although England are likely to top this group come the end of the qualification campaign, Slovenia in particular will feel they have a good chance of finishing second and possibly qualify for next year’s World Cup. Scotland have had a poor campaign so far and are now unlikely to even finish in the top two after poor results against the likes of Lithuania and Slovakia. They had a friendly against Canada in midweek – a big chance to build some confidence – but could only manage a draw at Easter Road in a lacklustre performance which will not live long…

Portugal v Hungary Betting Tips: European champions to come out on top

These two sides really need a victory on Saturday if they want to have a realistic chance of qualifying for the World Cup next year as Switzerland currently top the group by a comfortable distance. Surprise Euro 2016 winners Portugal are in great danger of missing out on the World Cup next year as they lost a vitally important match to rivals Switzerland early on in the qualification process. In terms of the other matches though, the Portuguese have been spot on at both ends of the pitch with 16 goals scored – by far the best record in the…

Horse Racing Betting Tips: 16:55 Lingfield (25/03/17)

16:55 Lingfield – Gnaad @ 2/1  The penultimate race at Lingfield on Saturday afternoon is just the right opening for the progressive looking Gnaad to record his second consecutive victory, and a first in handicap company. After two low-key starts at the end of last year, this three-year-old has shown up well on all three starts since reappearing back in February, proving that he is clearly getting the hang of the racing game. Having gone very close in a maiden over C&D, Gnaad ran another decent race in defeat at Wolverhampton in handicap company on his next start, before winning…

Horse Racing Betting Tips: 14:35 Lingfield (25/03/17)

14:35 Lingfield – Major Muscari @ 5/1 If the early betting is anything to go by then the first handicap on Lingfield’s Saturday card is all about the Shaun Harris trained Culloden, who’s currently as short as 6/4 in places. However, Major Muscari – a horse who happens to the stablemate of the aforementioned Culloden – is the one who really stands out. It’s been a long time since this one managed to get his head in front, but after a number of encouraging performances in recent times, that long awaited victory might not be far away. Despite putting in a…

Luxembourg v France Betting Tips: Visitors to outclass minnows

David meets Goliath in this World Cup qualifier as Luxembourg host next door neighbours France. There is surely only one outcome here? Luxembourg are unsurprisingly bottom of Group A after taking just one point in their opening four World Cup qualification matches. However, they have put up some rather valiant performances and have managed to score an impressive five goals – including three against Bulgaria and one against European giants the Netherlands. Unfortunately though, their defence is quite leaky with no clean sheets in their four matches – although they have still conceded fewer than Bulgaria who are 4th in…

Oldham v Sheffield United Betting Tips: Goals expected to arrive at Boundary Park

Having managed to get themselves in a commanding position at the top of League One, Sheffield United will be looking to extend their six point lead when they travel to take on Oldham at the weekend. However, the hosts are not the easiest of teams to beat so this may not be as straightforward as many expect. Although the visitors are currently something of a dominant force in this division, they’ve shown a few signs of weakness in recent times, particularly at the back. At the prices, backing Sheffield United to come out on top simply cannot be justified. There…

Morecambe v Mansfield Betting Tips: Stags to do the business on their travels

Only one of these sides has any real interest in these end of season matches as visitors Mansfield Town are chasing the play-offs whilst Morecambe are in mid-table safety with no prospects of finishing in the top seven. Morecambe are having a terrible time at the moment having suffered five consecutive losses and no wins in six. Thankfully for them though, they have built up enough of a cushion above the bottom two to ensure they are not under the threat of relegation. As you would expect from a team who cannot stop losing, Jim Bentley’s side are having problems…

Accrington v Grimsby Betting Tips: Stanley to get the job done at home

An in-form Accrington play host to a stuttering Grimsby in League Two on Saturday afternoon – a fixture that provides the hosts with a good opportunity to continue their rise up the table. On their overall achievements this season, there’s little between two teams who’re separated in the table by just three points, although Accrington do have a game in hand and could leapfrog their opponents with a victory. Given just how impressive they’ve been in recent weeks, a Stanley win certainly doesn’t seem unlikely, so much so that the hosts are worth backing to come out on top. Additionally,…

Portsmouth v Newport County Betting Tips: Pompey to have too much in the locker

These two sides have different aims in League Two this season with Portsmouth chasing automatic promotion whilst visitors Newport County are fighting for their Football League future. Portsmouth’s three-match winning run, in which they scored ten and conceded zero, came to an abrupt halt last weekend with a 3-0 defeat away to Stevenage. However, they are still in the automatic promotion spots with a four-point cushion over the aforementioned Stevenage in 4th. Pompey’s strength this season has been their back-line which is the best in the division with just 34 conceded in 38 games and clean sheets in 45% of…

Bury v Fleetwood Betting Tips: Both teams can profit going forward at Gigg Lane

Ahead of this League One fixture, Fleetwood, despite playing away from home, have been installed as the favourites and, based on their exploits so far this season, rightly so. Having said that, Bury are a rejuvenated side and are not to be taken lightly. Over the last few weeks, both of these sides have recorded a number of impressive results, particularly in their respective home and away matches. With this in mind, it would be no surprise whatsoever if both put in a good performance here. There are two bets that stand out and these are ‘Both Teams to Score’…

Cheltenham Festival Day 3: Pertemps Network Final Betting Tips

14:10 Cheltenham (Pertemps Network Final) Rocklander @ 25/1 (each-way) Another day at the Cheltenham Festival and another hugely competitive big-field handicap is the focus. Once again, there’s plenty in here who deserve respect; Jury Duty, Impulsive Star, Presenting Percy and For Good Measure are closely grouped at the head of the early market, while the eight-timer-chasing Tobefair certainly can’t be discounted, alongside several others. However, the one who really stands out at the prices is Tom George’s Rocklander. Having won on handicap debut back in November, this eight-year-old hasn’t looked back and has steadily progressed with each run since. His close-up 2nd…

Cheltenham Festival Day 2: 14:50 Coral Cup Betting Tips

14:50 Cheltenham (Coral Cup) Taquin Du Seuil @ 20/1 (each-way) Hawk High @ 33/1 (each-way) Handicap races at the festival are just about as competitive as it gets and Wednesday’s Coral Cup is no exception. Of this field of 26, there really are any number who, for one reason or another, could be fancied. However, in my mind, there are two who really stand out at the prices. Both Taquin Du Seuil and Hawk High are previous festival winners, and, on their best form, are entitled to go well. Things didn’t quite go to plan for Jonjo O’Neill’s runners on Tuesday – Holywell looked…

Singlefarmpayment, The Druids Nephew and Ibis Du Rheu all warrant plenty of respect and will no doubt be popular in the betting, while Henri Parry Morgan and last year’s winner Un Temps Pour Tout are also likely to be well supported. From the handful at the top of the market, there are two who really stand out – Paddy Power Chase winner Noble Endeavor and…
