Bet’s be ‘avin you: Football betting tips for the 28-29 April
First bet of the week covers Saturday’s Premier League action. With the top two squaring off on Monday night, the relegation battle takes centre stage, but forgive us if we don’t see Wolves suddenly playing with verve and freedom now their failure has been confirmed. Their manager is shite, you see, and some of the players not a whole lot better. Also have to back an in-form Everton side against Fulham, always notoriously shaky away from the cottage. Finally, has anyone ever seen a side more likely than Villa to burn through your tight-shut eyelids with their brand of dire football dished out by a dreary, dour circus master? West Brom for me, taking the Villains (and to football that is what they currently are) closer to the drop zone.
£10 on Everton, Swansea and West Brom to win gets you £65
The Championship season is reaching its close, but with the relegation places sorted the only interest lies towards the upper echelons of the league. I can’t see Southampton chucking away their golden chance for promotion despite giving away a lead to lose at Boro last week (costing me 70 snoops in the process). They will surely defeat Coventry, but will be pushed all the way by a West Ham side whose fat controller is surely for the chop if an immediate return to the Premier League is not earned.

The French title race looks like it will go down to the wire, with Montpellier leading the way followed by Lille and PSG. Whilst the leaders take their slightly dodgy away record to Toulouse (with everything Toulouse, lolz), Lille and PSG play off on Sunday night, with the loser surely out of the race with four games to go. I’m sitting on the fence of a lovely Chateau sipping a glass of Bordeaux, and predicting two draws.
£5 on Montpellier and PSG both to draw gets you £55
Finally, Chelsea take on QPR on Sunday lunchtime, and the last game between the two sides led to Captain, Leader, Legend, Bellend getting himself into all sorts of bother. Although I think Chelsea will win, the game will surely be a spicy affair, and with QPR getting so many dismissals this season and Chelsea getting two reds in the reverse fixure, why wouldn’t that trick be repeated?
£10 on QPR getting a red card gets you £30
