Sunday Sports Multiple: A Tottenham win the headline in a 7/2 weekend wager

Crystal Palace hit form in convincing fashion last weekend when they beat West Brom 5-1 and in that mood, they could give the Premier League leaders something to think about on Sunday, but I’m still backing the visitors to prevail.

Since an opening day loss to Everton, Jose Mourinho’s side have gone unbeaten in the top-flight, and have just come through a tough run of fixtures against Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal with an impressive haul of seven points.

Their south London rivals are sure to be well organised this weekend and a fit-again Wilfried Zaha is always a threat, but Spurs have been ruthless on the road, picking up 13 out of 15 points on their travels and I’m backing them to edge this derby.

Munster are strong favourites to prevail in their opening European Champions Cup game but they won’t be taking the visitors for granted on Sunday.

Harlequins are one of only four sides to have won at Thomond Park in 25 years of European rugby competition and their talented squad is in good form, having won two out of three in the Premiership, including a 34-24 win at Gloucester last week.

But Munster are also looking good this season. They’ve won seven out of seven in the Pro14 and have run up 128 points in their last three home games. The two time European Champions will be desperate to make an impression this time round having failed to reach the knockout stages last season and they look a solid bet here.

Hobart Hurricanes kicked off their Big Bash League campaign with a solid win over the reigning champions Sydney Sixers and they look worth a bet to make it two from two when they take on Adelaide Strikers on Sunday.

The Strikers won this tournament in 2018 and reached the knock-out stages last season, primarily on the back of an ability to defend lowish totals.

That battling quality will be useful again this time round, but their batting looks too weak to make them genuine contenders and Hobart, who have a nicely balanced batting order will have the additional edge of match freshness here.

The Daily Acca: No clean sheets at Kenilworth Road

Paul Robinson takes his usual Saturday look at the Championship, and he has put together a 10/1 Daily Acca. Here are his selections:

Goals to continue in Preston away games

Bet 1: Back BTTS in Luton v Preston @ 20/23 – KO 15:00 GMT

At Kenilworth Road, four of Luton’s last five matches have had goals at both ends. Nathan Jones’ side have only been beaten twice on this ground this term, but their only clean sheet came against Wycombe, back on October 3rd.

Preston have scored 25 goals so far this season, and 18 of them have come on the road. They haven’t failed to find the net away from home, but they kept just two clean sheets of their own in eight matches, and Alex Neil’s men have conceded eight times in their last three.

A repeat from last season

Bet 2: Back Coventry @ 11/8 – KO 15:00 GMT

Wycombe had been on a good run, but their 2-1 loss at Barnsley was their second defeat in three games. Gareth Ainsworth’s team are second from bottom with just 11 points from 17 fixtures, and their four match unbeaten run at home came to an end against Stoke last time.

The Sky Blues travel south on a run of six without defeat – four draws and two wins. They are yet to record a victory away from home since their promotion to the Championship, but they beat Wycombe 1-4 here in League One last year.

Robins to win again

Bet 3: Back Bristol City @ 29/20 – KO 15:00 GMT

Rotherham fell to their third defeat on the bounce at Wycombe on Tuesday, and it was their fifth from their last half dozen outings. Brentford beat them in their last match here, and that was their fourth home loss from eight home fixtures this season.

Bristol City had topped the league earlier in the campaign, and while they have since dropped to sixth, the gap to the leaders is only four points, and they have won two of their last three. Away from home it’s five victories from eight, which includes three of their last four.

Football Bet of the Day: Romans to be left in ruins

After an agonising near-miss last night, Kev’s taking on one of Serie’s A finest this evening.

“Hellas Verona won at Atalanta and drew at Milan and Juventus. They are capable of upsetting a Lazio side that had a physically and emotionally draining Champions League game in midweek.”

Lay Lazio at 1.715/7

Visitors to enjoy Roman holiday

Lazio v Verona
Saturday 12 December, 19:45
Live on Premier Sports 1

We were just two minutes away from a 3.8514/5 winner last night in Germany, but pesky Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst snatched a late goal to deny us a draw. I’d be tempted to take it up with him personally, but he’s a big lad, and not the type to mess about.

We’ll swap the Bundesliga for Serie A, because Lazio are up against an impressive Hellas Verona, and I believe the hosts are too short in the Match Odds market.

Lazio had a very draining Champions League game in midweek, a match against Club Brugge that saw them come within a whisker of losing and being eliminated. The Romans played the closing stages of that match against ten men, but the Belgians still came away with a 2-2 draw and hit the bar with virtually the last kick of the game.

Lazio have had a tough run of fixtures at the Stadio Olimpico, but they have only won one of their last five home games in the league, and in their last Serie A home match they were beaten 3-1 by Udinese.

Hellas Verona, on the other hand, have been enjoying their travels this season. Ivan Juric’s team have won at Atalanta and carved out draws at Juventus and Milan, leading in Turin and at San Siro before having to accept a point. They have lost just one of their last seven league matches, and they are only a point worse off than Lazio in the standings.

Yes, Lazio have star quality in the likes of Luis Alberto, Sergey Milinkovic-Savic and in-form goal-getter Ciro Immobile, but Verona have faced better sides on the road and still avoided defeat.

I’ll lay Lazio here at 1.715/7.
