Lazio v Bologna Betting Tips – Serie A, 20th May 7.30pm

This is an important game for Lazio and their ambitions for next season. They start the weekend four points out of the top six places in the table and therefore need to come up with three points in this one. So all of the impetus is going to be on them for this one. Bologna though are in good form at the moment, despite sitting in the bottom half of the table. Read our predictions for Lazio v Bologna.

Lazio News and Form

Lazio got an important three points on the board last weekend with a narrow win at Cagliari. That leaves the door narrowly open for them to make a top six finish. A win here is needed to keep that dream alive. They have suffered back to back defeats at the Stadio Olimpico though, going just W1 D1 L2 in their last four there in the league.

That is part of an overall home record of W9 D4 L5 this season which they have posted on home soil in Serie A. Four of their five home defeats suffered have been against the current top four sides. The flip side of that is that all but one of their home successes have been against teams currently down in the bottom half of the standings.

Lazio have averaged 1.8 goals per home game this season and 67% of their home fixtures have made it over 2.5 goals. There has been a clean sheet from them in 28% of their home fixtures, but they have only produced one clean sheet in their last eight home and away combined.

It is a thirteen match scoring streak on home soil that they are on at the moment, conceding 68% of their home goals in the second period of fixtures. Lazio have opened the scoring in 13 of their 18 home games. They can shake off what has been a bit of a disappointing season with a good win in this one, they certainly have to push hard for it at this point.

Lazio v Bologna Head to Head

Lazio were 2-0 winners at Bologna in December
Lazio are undefeated in their last eleven against Bologna
Bologna have drawn their last two league visits to Lazio 1-1
Both teams have scored in five of the last seven meetings

Key-Facts – Lazio v Bologna

  • Lazio have won only one of their last five home games
  • Lazio have scored in each of their last 13 home fixtures
  • Bologna have won seven of their last ten league games

Bologna News and Form

Bologna have had a strong end to the season. After winning just three games from the start of the season through to very early March, relegation was a real concern for them. No more though because they are now W7 D1 L2 in their last ten league games, home and away. It has been a massive transformation by Bologna, although mathematically they aren’t quite safe from the drop. Their overall away record this season has seen them win just twice on the road, but both of those were against current top seven sides.

Bologna have averaged under a goal per game away from home this season. In total, they have bagged a clean sheet in 22% of their matches this season. Of the two wins they have picked up on their travels, both of them were by a one-goal margin. Bologna have only managed the one point from their last three away games though. Bologna have scored almost 60% of their away goals in the second period of fixtures and each of their last four league games have gone over 2.5 goals. Atalanta are the only team in Serie A to have claimed more points than Bologna have done over the last eight rounds of league action.

Lazio v Bologna Tips & Odds

Lazio to win by a one-goal margin at 11/4
Over 2.5 goals at 8/11
* (Betting Odds were taken from *** on May 15th, 2019 at 3:20 p.m.)

Lazio v Bologna Predictions

Lazio to win: Even though Lazio have not been in great form lately on home soil, they should drive towards the win. Bologna have had a significant upturn in form without question, but their wins on the road have been few and far between. Lazio to win by a one-goal margin.

Rays vs. Yankees MLB Pick – May 18th

MONEYLINE
+110ODDS

OUR PICK

YANKEES

BET NOW!

The New York Yankees edged out the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday to earn their fourth win in a row. As predicted, the Yankees are leading the AL East now. The Rays jumped out early in the season without having to worry about a fully healthy Yankees team. However, the Yankees played better than expected to hang around, and now that they’re beginning to get some power hitters back in the lineup, the Yankees are going to be a tough out.

The Yankees are 0.5 games up on the Rays and 4.5 up on the Red Sox with a record of 27-16. It is going to be the Yankees’ division to lose. But don’t discount the Red Sox, as they’ve been playing better baseball lately.

C.C. Sabathia posted a solid outing yesterday, going 6 strong innings and allowing only 1 run. He made a mistake against Willey Adames, who drilled his second home run of the season against Sabathia. Other than that, it was a nice showing for Sabathia, who has really been pitching well in 2019. He is the x-factor who could carry the Yankees to places in the postseason.

Masahiro Tanaka is expected to perform at a high level on the bump. He is at a point in his career where he must play an elite role for the Yankees. Tanaka has shown flashes of greatness, but he has had injuries on and off during his career and hasn’t been as consistent as say a Verlander or Kershaw.

In nine starts this season, we’ve seen a little of everything from Tanaka. The good and the bad have been on display. Most recently, he was really good against the Rays. We’ll see if he can do it again. Head below for our free Rays vs. Yankees pick on Saturday afternoon.

Tampa Bay Rays vs. N.Y. Yankees Pick:

Betting Odds:

  • Moneyline: Rays -130/Yankees +110
  • O/U: 8

Pitching Matchup:

  • Blake Snell (3-4, 3.56 ERA)
  • Masahiro Tanaka (3-3, 3.44 ERA)

Betting odds provided by bovada.lv

Blake Snell, fresh off his Cy Young in 2018, has been pitching well but not up to his standards from last season. He flew under the radar playing on a bad team in the American League, but Snell was the deserving winner of the AL Cy Young. Along with Jacob deGrom, neither Cy Young winner from last season went to the postseason or were even much of a threat to do so.

The Rays are a better overall team this season, but they’re going to need Snell to find the stroke he had from 2018. The left-hander has looked good in spots, but hasn’t been as dominant as last season, at least not yet.

Snell enters with an ERA of 3.56 and a 4.80 ERA on the road. He was hammered against the Royals for 7 runs in 3 innings three starts ago, which is his worst outing in a long time. In his previous three appearances, Snell posted an ERA of 5.52 with a 1.09 WHIP.

The long ball has been giving him issues, as he’s given up 5 of them in his last three. In his latest start, he was beat by the Yankees for a 7-1 final. Snell best stay away from Gary Sanchez, who is hitting .364 with 3 home runs against him in 11 at-bats. The batting average as a team is way down for the Yankees against Snell, with a .183 but he’s given it all back with 8 home runs against.

Snell has been hittable this season. He isn’t the same machine who finished with an ERA of 1.89. At least not yet, because he could certainly find that same rhythm and catch fire, but he’s been inconsistent thus far. Tanaka is coming off a strong performance against the Rays. He gave up 5 hits and 1 run in 7 innings.

There wasn’t a single walk credited to him, too. He’s been efficient at home with an ERA of 3.03 in 29.2 innings. In his last three outings, Tanaka posted a 3.12 ERA and 1.04 WHIP. The Rays have been terrible playing at Yankee Stadium where they are just 8-23 in the last 31 meetings. Additionally, the Rays have gone 1-7 in the Bronx in Snell’s last eight appearance here. There seems to be some value on the Yankees catching a nice price on Saturday afternoon.

Scott Allot’s Euro Tips: Celta can finish in style

CELTA VIGO are virtually safe heading into the final day of La Liga but can finish in style against the division's worst travellers.

Celta, three points and six goals better off than third-bottom Girona, have won four in a row at home ahead of the visit of Rayo Vallecano.

The already-relegated visitors have lost their last eight away games and taken just 10 points on the road all season. Back Celta and over 1.5 goals at 4-6 with Coral.

In Ligue 1, PSG will be presented with the title trophy after their final home game of the season against Dijon tonight.

PSG have stumbled over the finish line but remain dominant at home where they've dropped just four points all campaign.

They welcome back Kylian Mbappe from suspension and can overpower a Dijon side still fighting for survival but who've lost nine of their last 10 away games to nil.

Bearing in mind the hosts' injury and suspension absentees and Dijon's stuffy resistance – all 18 of their away matches have gone under 4.5 goals – the visitors should avoid a drubbing. I'm backing PSG and under 4.5 match goals at 19-20 with Coral.

Round off the treble in Germany where Borussia Monchengladbach are fighting to cling on to a Champions League spot in their final-day clash with a Borussia Dortmund side who still have a chance of the title. It points to goals and over 2.5 is 1-3 at William Hill.

Euro Treble

  • Monchengladbach v Dortmund over 2.5 goals (2.30pm)
  • Celta Vigo win & over 1.5 goals (7.45pm)
  • PSG win & under 4.5 goals (8pm)
  • (16-5, Coral)

Euro Both Teams to Score Tips: SPAL can strike

UDINESE are too close for comfort in the Serie A survival battle with just two points separating them from the drop zone with two matches to go.

Today they host a SPAL side sitting comfortably in mid-table after a fine season. Udinese have only failed to net in one of their last dozen home outings while SPAL have drawn a blank just once in 14, so both teams to net stands out at 4-5 with Betfair.

In Austria, Rapid Vienna have scored four in back-to-back away games while conceding 2+ in three in a row.

They head to a Mattersburg side who've had btts in eight of 10 at home and goals at both ends again looks likely at 4-7 with ***.

Final call is Belgium where St Truiden have kept one clean sheet in 20 games ahead of the visit of Westerlo.

The visitors have netted two and three in their last two away assignments and can get on the scoresheet again, with btts paying 6-11 at Sportingbet.

Scott's Euro Btts Treble

  • Udinese v SPAL (2pm)
  • Mattersburg v Rapid Vienna (4pm)
  • St Truiden v Westerlo (7pm)
  • (16-5, Marathonbet)

Astros vs. Red Sox MLB Pick – May 18th

MONEYLINE
-105ODDS

OUR PICK

RED SOX

BET NOW!

That was a tough one for the Boston Red Sox last night, as they carried a 1-0 lead from near the 6th inning of the game to the 8th. That was until George Spring went deep and scored 2 runs to make it a 2-1 game. The Astros added another run off a Josh Reddick RBI and that was goodnight for the Red Sox.

Roberto Osuna, who has been flawless in his closing role, allowed a double to Christian Vasquez but got Eduardo Nunez to groundout and Mookie Betts failed to connect as he represented the winning run at the plate. With the loss, the Red Sox fell to 23-21 on the season and the Astros won their 9th straight game.

The Red Sox have been playing better baseball than they were earlier in the season, though. Despite the loss, they’ve won 9 of their last 12 games. The offense caught fire against the Mariners, as they put up 24 runs in three games.

Obviously, the offense was lost against Gerrit Cole last night. It was the second game in the last seven games that the Red Sox scored 2 runs or less. The Astros have been the hottest team in baseball recently, as they look to make it ten straight wins on Saturday.

With that said, the Red Sox have been looking up lately after suffering a long hangover for the first month of the season. I think it was only a matter of time before they woke up offensively, but pitching woes may follow them for longer.

The bullpen has some question marks and they haven’t had consistent pitching from their rotation. Now with David Price on the IL, there is added stress on the healthy members. Nathan Eovaldi has been injured as well, so they’re working with a four-man unit at the moment. It will be Hector Velasquez’s turn in the rotation on Saturday. Rookie Corbin Maritn will counter for the Astros. Head below for our free Astros vs. Red Sox pick.

Houston Astros vs. Boston Red Sox Pick:

Betting Odds:

  • Moneyline: Astros -115/Red Sox -105
  • O/U: 10.5

Pitching Matchup:

  • Corbin Martin (1-0, 3.38 ERA)
  • Hector Velasquez (1-2, 3.95 ERA)

Betting odds provided by bovada.lv

Corbin Martin looks like he has the potential to be a pretty good one for the Astros. He excelled in Triple-A ball with an ERA of 1.48 and 1.03 WHIP in 24.1 innings of work. Martin got the call up to face the Rangers and he had a pretty nice debut, as he went 5.1 innings, allowing just 3 hits and 2 runs. He was ultimately tagged for a 3.38 ERA at home against the Rangers.

Saturday poses a different challenge. It’s only his second start of his career and it will come at Fenway Park. For a young pitcher, it is exciting to get to play at Fenway in Boston. However, it can also be a little intimidating for a guy with little experience.

The Red Sox bats were quiet yesterday, so are they going to be able to take their frustration out on the rookie? The last time the Red Sox scored 1 run, they followed it up with 8 the next game. After a 2-run game on May 8th, they smacked the mariners for 14 runs.

Going back further, they scored 9 runs after getting held down for 2 runs the previous day. So, the Red Sox have known how to respond after hitting a wall. Martin is talented, but I think he’s in for a tricky game on Saturday at Fenway. It isn’t easy to hold the Red Sox offense in check for consecutive days.

Hector Velasquez has taken on dual roles for the Red Sox, as he’s bounced between the bullpen and starting rotation. He has made six starts, while coming out of the bullpen for six appearances. His most recent showings have been in a starting role, as he allowed 2 runs each against the Orioles and Mariners.

His latest outing was impressive, as he held the Mariners to just 2 hits 2 runs in 5.1 innings of work. Note that he hasn’t allowed more than 3 runs in any appearance this season, with five of his six starts falling under 3 runs allowed. The ‘Stros are hitting .143 with just 2 hits against him in 14 at-bats.

He hasn’t surrendered an RBI to Houston yet. That will likely occur Saturday, but I the offense should be able to get it going for the Red Sox after falling silent Friday. Corbin Martin has a future as a major league pitcher, but expect him to take a loss in Boston in his first ever road start.

Athletics vs. Tigers MLB Pick – May 18th

MONEYLINE
-103ODDS

OUR PICK

TIGERS

BET NOW!

The Oakland Athletics and Detroit Tigers meet at Comerica Park in downtown Detroit for the third time this season. The Athletics got things started in a big way with a massive 17-3 win on Thursday. The day was capped off by 5 home runs, which included a Profar grand slam to lead the Athletics. Oakland were losers in 11 of their previous 12 road games, so they were able to get out some frustration in that one.

The A’s have been one of the worst road teams in the major leagues this season, but it certainly didn’t look like the case against the Tigers. Trailing by nearly ten games in the AL West the A’s have a small bit of work to do to get into contention. They started to come on late last season, but it was far too late to mount a comeback.

Maybe they should consider getting on the winning trail before August. It was a closer game last night, but the same result in the W-L column. Oakland took a 3-0 lead in the 5th inning, as Frankie Montas had a no-hitter going before Miguel Cabrera connected for a double in the bottom of the 5th. It didn’t take long for the Athletics to get it right back and more, as they rang the scoreboard to 6-1 pretty quickly.

Josh Harrison was able to bring Cabrera in two hitters later. It’s a work-in-progress in Detroit this season, but they are in a rebuilding phase anyway. With Casey Mize’s major league arrival approaching in two or so years, the Tigers should focus on having a team built to win then. This is more of a feeling out process to see who wants to be included in those plans.

The A’s are hoping that Daniel Mengden can round into shape after trying to become a fulltime contributor after a serious injury in 2017. Mengden exited 2017 after just seven starts when things were going pretty well for him. At the time, he had an ERA of 3.14. Mengden made 17 starts last season and was decent, but didn’t reach those levels of success. Head below for our free Athletics vs. Tigers pick.

Oakland Athletics vs. Detroit Tigers Pick:

Betting Odds:

  • Moneyline: Athletics -117/Tigers -103
  • O/U: 9

Pitching Matchup:

  • Daniel Mengden (0-1, 6.75 ERA)
  • Matthew Boyd (4-3, 3.15 ERA)

Betting odds provided by bovada.lv

There haven’t been too many bright spots for the Tigers this season, it’s often difficult to locate them in a rebuilding season, but Matt Boyd is starting to hit his stride finally. Boyd was acquired in the David Price trade and he’s finally developed into one of the best options in the Tigers’ rotation. After a few pedestrian seasons as a Tiger, Boyd has been having his best season thus far. He hasn’t allowed more than 3 runs in any game this year. Boyd posted an ERA of 4.39 last season, which was a career-high for him. Early indications suggest that he’s ready to surpass that in 2019.

Boyd goes into Saturday with a 3.15 ERA and 0.99 WHIP. He hasn’t allowed more than 3 runs and has given up 2 or less runs in five of eight outings this season. The lefty has faced some pretty good offenses as well, including the Astros, Yankees, and Red Sox. Boyd has been slightly better at home with an ERA of 3.00 and 0.97 WHIP in 30 innings on the mound. Mengden will make his second start of 2019 in Detroit on Saturday.

His first try this season wasn’t too hot, as he allowed 4 earned runs and 5 runs in total against the Indians in 5.1 innings. He was knocked with an ERA of 6.75, .375 OBA, and 1.69 WHIP when his day was all said and done. Mengden’s control was an issue as well, yielding 4 walks in his first outing of 2019.

He reached 100 pitches in that game and it was a surprise given it was his first start. His workload was expected to be a little less than that. He hadn’t thrown at least 100 pitches since May 31st of last season. After getting steamrolled the last two days, expect Boyd to get the Tigers back on track, at least for one game. The Athletics likely regress after outscoring the Tigers 24-5 on Thursday and Friday. They are still only a 7-15 team on the road this season. Consider selecting the Tigers in this spot on Saturday at Comerica.

WWE Money in the Bank 2019 Predictions

Posted: May 17, 2019

Today we’re going to be looking at WWE Money in the Bank 2019, and providing betting tips for it.

If you want more information about WWE betting or details on why you can bet on it etc, please see this article: Where To Bet The WWE.

It’s an interesting time in the WWE right now and this should be a hell of a PPV.

They’ve just signed that big network deal and everything was looking glorious – but now? Ratings are falling. Hard. AEW is launching. The pressure is on and that was obvious during RAW the other week with the whole “wild card” nonsense.

What that means for Sundays show is we could see a huge night with some crazy things going on.

I’m pretty pumped about it. One thing WWE really needs is that unpredictability and I think we’ve got that going on for this show for usre.

Let’s get into my betting predictions:

WWE Money in the Bank Bets:

Becky Lynch to beat Charlotte (-125). This is one where I played fantasy booker, came up with a scenario and am going to back it. I think Becky beats both Lacey and Charlotte then someone cashes in the briefcase and beats her. Becky is a huge favourite over Lacey so this is the only bettable one. Becky beating Lacey then losing to Charlotte? That’s dull.

The Field vs Drew in the Mens Money in the bank (-125). This is one where I can make a case for quite a few people to win the MITB aside from Drew McIntyre. Andrade isn’t bad either is Corbin and others. Worth the bet against Drew McIntyre winning. WWE do seem to mix it up in regard to the favourite winning and not winning.

Bayley to win Womens MITB (+195). She’s 2nd favourite and I think with Bayley winning it adds intrigue due to her being everyones friend. A heel turn would be exceptional. Well maybe not exceptional but it’d be fun to see for sure I think and add something to the stale character.

Kevin Owens to win the title (+150). Kofi was never a long term plan. He got hot, they did the right thing. He’s still pretty hot but I think WWE realize Kofi can always be hot with or without the title. It’s something Owens needs and I think we see at least one title change on this card to mix things up going forward. This seems the most possible.

Shane McMahon to win (+330). Only a small bet here but neither guy needs the win so it’s a decent price. Yeah Shane won last time out but you get the feeling they’re doing him vs Roman or at least hinting at it and if that’s the case, a win will help him here.

The Usos to win (+175). I mean this whole match is set up due to the wild card rules right? What better way to make the wild card stuff get over than have them win here? Worth a small bet.

England v Pakistan 5th ODI Predictions & Betting Odds

England v Pakistan 5th ODI – Sunday, May 19th 2019 at 11.00 am

There was a thriller at Trent Bridge on Friday in the fourth match of the series. Pakistan again looked to have posted a solid score in the match after having batted first. However, once again it was England who produced another fine run-chase in the match. However, it was way more of a nail biter than England’s dominant win at Bristol in the third match.

England v Pakistan ODI Odds*

England 1.20
Pakistan 4.50
* (betting odds taken from Unibet on May 17th, 2019 at 9:45 pm)

Another successful run chase

England have now successfully completed each of their last 21 run chases on home soil. It has been three successful chases of 340 from them this year. It’s been such fantastic stuff from Eoin Morgan’s men. The 2019 World Cup favourites were back at it on Friday as they hosted Pakistan in the penultimate game of this ODI series. Pakistan opened with 340-7 another reasonable total by the tourists.
 

England to win 2019 Cricket World Cup

Unibet

They had put more on the board in the third match of the series in Bristol and England just sauntered their way to a match win. It was a little tighter this time around. Jason Roy set the standard for England’s innings, putting 114 on the board as opener. However, his disposal started a bit of a collapse.

Both Jos Buttler and Moeen Ali went for ducks and the game got a little bit tighter towards the final fifteen overs. However, the hosts were steered over the line thanks to a big intervention from all-rounder Ben Stokes who had come in at four. He knocked off 71 runs, staying there until the end to knock off the winning single. It was he and Tom Curran who really set up England for victory, steadying the ship at the end.

Stokes rises to the occasion

The performance from Stokes was brilliant. He needed that as well because he hasn’t been in great form and even his place in the starting eleven at the World Cup was coming into question. That was just the innings that he needed under pressure. So now it’s on to game five on Sunday at Headingly, and it’ll be interesting to see what line up they will go with. They have been changing their lineups in the last couple of matches.

But that is a three-match winning streak in the series now that England are on (the first was no-result). There has been a significant pattern in the last two. Pakistan are capable of posting good scores, but their fielding has been dreadful. England, no matter what line up they are sending out, look capable of catching whatever they are set. This will be England’s last ODI before their opening World Cup match on May 30th, against South Africa.

England remain 15/8 outright favourites to win the Cricket World Cup 2019* (betting odds taken from Unibet on May 17th, 2019 at 9:45 pm)

Next Middlesbrough manager betting odds

Middlesbrough are on now on the hunt for a new manager as they parted company with Tony Pulis this week. The two parties had talks on Friday and things probably didn’t pan out as well as Pulis would have wanted them too.

Middlesbrough claimed a seventh-place finish in the Championship this season, missing out on the playoffs and therefore promotion. That could be a costly failure for the club.

Next Middlesbrough Manager Odds*

Jonathan Woodgate 11/10
Chris Hughton 3/1
Danny Cowley 8/1
Michael Reiziger 8/1
Aitor Karanka 10/1
Sol Campbell 16/1
Mikel Arteta 20/1
Nigel Pearson 25/1
Philip Neville 25/1
David Moyes 25/1
Steven Gerrard 33/1
Carlos Carvalhal 33/1
* (betting odds taken from William Hill on May 17th, 2019 at 5:04 pm)

Six match losing streak crushed Boro

There were positives from Middlesbrough, who did have the joint-best defensive record in the Championship. However, given the defensive-minded style of Pulis, they were the lowest scores of the finishers in the top half of the table. Despite winning five of their last six games, they came up short.

The damage in their promotion push really happened in a six-match losing streak in early March through early April. Pulis took charge of the Teessiders in December 2017 and he did get them to the playoff semifinals last year where they lost out to Aston Villa.

Costly miss on promotion

Financially they really needed promotion this season. That is because their parachute payments received by clubs for two years following relegation from the Premier League will now cease for the 2019/20 season.

So Boro need to look for a new fit for the club. Former Real Madrid defender Jonathan Woodgate is the early 11/10 favourite with William Hill in Next Middlesbrough manager betting* (betting odds taken from William Hill on May 17th, 2019 at 5:04 pm).

Celtic targets in the mixer

Former Brighton man Chris Hughton, who was sacked at the end of the season, as the 3/1 second favourite* (betting odds taken from William Hill on May 17th, 2019 at 5:04 pm).

Hughton has had his name heavily linked with a move to Celtic. Another of the names linked with Celtic, current England Women’s boss Phil Neville is a longer 25/1 shot* (betting odds taken from William Hill on May 17th, 2019 at 5:04 pm)

Aitor Karanka is at 10/1 to make a return to the Riverside with Michael Reiziger and Danny Cowley at 8/1* (betting odds taken from William Hill on May 17th, 2019 at 5:04 pm)

Punter lands season-long sevenfold acca

Is betting skill or luck? Is it a craftily blended touch of both of those things? Well, whatever stars aligned for one lucky Irish punter, there was an astonishingly outlandish and bold wager which was won.

Last July ahead of the new European domestic action, the Donegal punter had stuck a €20 bet with Boylesports on seven selections for the forthcoming season. Those pics were from the lower ranks of Scottish Football to the Netherlands.

In the bet, Ross County (5/2) were backed to win the Scottish Championship and Peterhead (6/4) to win League Two. Both duly obliged. Bolton’s relegation (4/5) from the Championship was another selection along with a Barnsley top-6 finish in League One (evens).

The MK Dons were backed to finish in the top seven in League Two and then for West Ham to claim a top half of the table finish in the Premier League (11/10). The Hammers did just that, but only thanks to their win over Watford on the final day of the season. That was six out of six.

The final predictions needed to complete the bet, was for Ajax to win the Eredivisie title. They had ended a point from their final game of the season and secured a maximum haul with a 4-1 success over Graafschap to hold off PSV Eindhoven.

With all seven predictions coming true, the punter won an eye-catching total of €5,788.13.

Lawrence Lyons, Spokesperson for Boylesports said: “Congratulations to our Donegal customer for scooping such a tidy amount from selections that didn’t even look that unlikely in retrospect.

“They had to sit on the bet over the whole season, but the wait proved well worth it and their patience has paid off in the best way possible.”

Mr Fixit’s Top Tips: Big day as season runs down

THE end of the season is in sight but plenty of issues  are still to be settled today in the UK and on the Continent.

Much of the focus will be on the FA Cup Final between Man City and Watford and I've posted a separate English preview here. Kevinmac has also posted a City vs Watford match preview.

Before that Hamilton and St Mirren are fighting to avoid a play-off to stay in the Scottish Premiership while in Europe there are some big matches on the final day of the Bundesliga and La Liga. I've posted a Scottish preview covering Saturday's bottom-six games and more briefly touching on Sunday's top-six matches.

Bayern Munich have made hard work of getting over the line in the title race but just need a draw at home to Eintracht Frankfurt to freeze out Borussia Dortmund at the top.

Eintracht, Borussia M'Gladbach and Bayer Leverkusen are chasing the final CL place but I'm backing Bayern to be celebrating in front of a huge crowd. They are no value to 2-7 so let's try Bayern and both to score at 23-20 with McBookie.

Gladbach and Bayer sit on 55 points, one ahead of Eintracht, so it's really tight. Dortmund visit Gladbach hoping for a slip-up by Bayern and best bet here should be both to score but bookies are giving nothing away with a quote of 1-3.

Bayer travel to Hertha Berlin and victory should give them fourth spot. Hertha have nothing to play for and Bayer are a best 1-2 – an insult of price. It would be easier finding ice in the desert than finding value so let's again go Bayer and both to score at 13-10 with BetVictor.

In Spain Valencia will take the fourth CL spot ahead of Getafe with victory at Valladolid. Getafe should beat Villarreal at home and hope for a Valencia slip-up. At the other end Celta Vigo will stay up with victory at home to relegated Vallecano.

Last night my double was a loser but well done to kevinmac with a full house of correct tips from the Dundee United v Inverness match at prices of 2-1, 5-4 and evens. Scott Allot's members bet from Belgium also landed and well done to all the other winners.

Scottish Football Tips: Accies can save their skins

I'M a great believer in backing teams who need something from a game and that's why I reckon St Mirren and Hamilton will both win today.

The Buddies earned a lifeline as the sides battle to avoid the play-off spot as they battled to a 2-0 victory against Accies on Monday.

Oran Kearney's men are a point adrift but have a vastly superior goal difference so if Hamilton lose or draw they need to better their result to stay safe.

Unfortunately Accies look set for victory at home to St Johnstone who have clinched seventh and having nothing to play for.

Brian Rice's home record is actually decent with just one defeat (to Rangers) and he's already recorded a win at the Hope CBD against the Perth men.

I expect Tommy Wright to play some second-stringers and Accies are a big price at 15-8 with *** and Saints favourites.

One problem for Rice is lack of goals and even before going down to 10 Accies didn't look like scoring.

It could be veteran Dougie Imrie's last game for the club and he is 16-1 with *** to bow out a hero with the opener.

St Mirren are in better form and have lost just once in seven (to Celtic).

Dundee ended a run of 10 defeats by winning at Livingston last week but their hosts made changes and were already on the beach.

The Buddies simply have to win and hope it's enough and Kearney will take confidence from the fact they're unbeaten against Dee this season – two home wins and an away draw.

Saints are a best 6-5 at McBookie to pick up the points while an Accies/St Mirren double pays 5-1 at ***.

Today’s other game between Motherwell is just for pride but I can see a home win at 23-20 with Coral.

On Sunday Kilmarnock and Aberdeen fight it out for a Europa League spot although both will make it in if Celtic as expected beat Hearts in the Scottish Cup Final.

Killie face the tougher test at home to a Rangers side trying to end the season with seven successive wins.

The sides have met six times this season with Rangers winning three and drawing twice and I can see another stalemate in what is likely to be Steve Clarke's last game in charge of a club he has reinvented.

Killie are 10-3 with *** and to claim the win that will clinch third spot while Gers are 10-11 at McBookie with the draw 5-2.

Hopefully it's a good contest with a few goals and I fancy a score draw at 4-1 with BetVictor.

Aberdeen haven't lost to Hibs this season – two wins and two draws – and I like their chances at 13-10 with Unibet against a side likely to have their feet off the gas.

The other game is a cup final rehearsal between Celtic and Hearts but teams tomorrow will much different from next Saturday with many stars rested. This is one game where bets shouldn't be placed until line-ups are revealed.

Elsewhere there are three play-off finals to be settled with QoS and Cove all but over the line after big first-leg victories.

Queens welcome Raith with a 3-1 lead and are 8-11 at McBookie to add to it. Stephen Dobbie's return has coincided with the Dumfries men hitting eight goals in two games and the 43-goal Player of the Year is 15-8 at McBookie to break the deadlock.

Cove take a 4-0 lead to Berwick and there's a clear gulf between the sides. The Highland League champions are 10-11 at Sky Bet to win again.

The only tie that's close is Clyde v Annan with the Bully Wee trailing by one. Clyde can edge a victory at 9-10 with William Hill to at least force extra time.

Recommended Bets

  • Hamilton
  • St Mirren
  • Killie v Rangers score draw
  • Dobbie to score first
  • Cove Rangers
  • Clyde

FA Cup Final Tips: City set to make history

UNLIKE the Scottish treble the English equivalent hasn't been achieved … until now.

Man City survived a scare to clinch the Premier League title last week and are set to add the FA Cup to the League Cup they won in February.

Holding all three trophies would be unprecedented and boss Pep Guardiola lives to break records and show off silverware.

Maybe next season he'll be targeting the Quadruple although I doubt if that's possible for any side to achieve.

Today's opponents at Wembley are Watford who have enjoyed a fine season despite ending with three defeats.

Javi Gracia, a Spaniard respected by his dugout rival, led them to 10th place and into just their second FA Cup Final after a dramatic comeback to beat Wolves in the semi-final.

They've obviously had one eye on this game for a while I can see them putting up a fight but there can only be one winner.

Both league meetings this season saw City win and both score so that has a chance at 2-1 at Betway.

City are no bigger than 2-9 to win in 90 minutes and 1-7 at Betfred to lift the Cup.

Watford are 6-1 with *** to pick up the trophy and 14-1 at Betfred to do the business in normal time.

The Blues have won the last 10 meetings between the sides and scored at least two goals in all of those outings.

City to win and over 2.5 goals pays 7-10 at Betway and with over 3.5 goals it's 13-8 at Paddy Power.

Sergio Aguero finished the season on a high with a goal at Brighton that took his season's tally to 32 in all competitions.

He is favourite to score first at 14-5 with Betway and is 4-5 at Ladbrokes to net at any time.

Raheem Sterling, who finished the campaign with 29 but with no goals in his last six, is 4-1 at Ladbrokes to strike first and 11-10 at BetVictor to net.

Sterling loves playing at Wembley and hit a hat-trick against the Hornets back in March at the Etihad.

The first 10 players in the first-scorer betting market are on City's side which highlights their strength in depth.

Most likely to hit the net for Watford are Gerard Delofeu at 11-2 with Betfred is skipper and penalty taker Troy Deeney who is the same price at Paddy Power.

Recommended Bets

  • Man City & btts
  • Aguero to score first
  • Sterling to score

Stats Value: Both sides to oblige in Ligue 1 on Saturday

OUR Stats Value column returns to WLB as we aim to pinpoint the best daily stats bets according to the data. Here's Saturday's value selection.

Strasbourg v Rennes | Saturday 18th May 2019, 20:00

Strasbourg have seen 13/18 (72%) of their home league games feature winning Both Teams To Score bets with matches averaging 3.00 goals per-game.

Rennes have seen 15/18 (83%) of their away league games feature winning Both Teams To Score bets with matches averaging 3.33 goals per-game.

Collectively, these two clubs have seen an average of just 3.17 goals per-game in their respective home/away matches and paid out in the Both Teams To Score column in 28/36 (78%) outings, a percentage success rate that would imply odds around 2/7.

We can back Both Teams To Score at 4/6 with Betfair in France on Saturday.

Politics: Back Theresa to fall on her sword sooner rather than later

OUR own Chris Graham (@chrisgraham79) takes a look at a political market for us with the Euro Elections on the horizon.

Theresa May Exit | 2019

Remember Steve Kean? The bald Scottish guy who managed Blackburn at the start of the decade? A man who was vilified from Day 1 by the fanbase after the controversial sacking of his predecessor Sam Allardyce? You do, don't you.

When I think of Kean I think of a man who hung on by his fingertips for weeks, months and nearly years (he lasted 21 months did Steve). Kean's natural successor in refusing to budge at all costs is our current Prime Minister, Theresa May.

Death Row

The Maybot has pissed all over Kean though as she's been at the helm now for almost three years. The last two years of that spell have been on political death row after a gamble went disastrously wrong in 2017 when she called a General Election and saw her majority wiped out. Political commentators gave her days to survive, yet remarkably 23 months later she's still at the helm. For now.

I've lost count of the number of times I've turned round to my wife and earnestly claimed that May will be gone by the time the bread in our kitchen turns mouldy. I've anticipated incorrectly a number of times. However this time it feels on. And the odds are shrinking. Quickly.

On Tuesday I was staggered to see she was 7/1 to go in June. Embarrassingly I got caught up in other stuff (dancing to the new Vampire Weekend record, praying for Steve Clarke to save Scotland) and forgot to place the bet.

I logged back in on Thursday and was gutted to see the odds were now 4/1. Still value for me, and there were no distractions this time as the money went down. As I type, the odds are now 21/10. A massive shift in just 72 hours. But why?

To put it bluntly, the Tories have had enough. May has been on the slide for two years and the wave of feeling against her is now reaching tsunami levels. The cabinet resignations post-Chequers last summer rocked her but it was her handshake with the EU in November that really started to destabilise her.

Withdrawal Agreement

Her Withdrawal Agreement deal has seen her shrouded in all-time Commons infamy. It's a deal that's the ultimate stinker, uniting opposite souls like Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn to vote against it. A deal that has produced the biggest and 4th biggest ever government defeats in the Commons. Incredible!

As well as those historic shamings, she's also faced a vote of confidence in her leadership where 117 of her MP's wanted her out.

That December vote means of course that she can't be challenged again till next Christmas so she's safe yeah? Not for me. For starters, the Tories are discussing changing the rules so she can be challenged again sooner. But I don't think it will come to that.

Quite simply, the Tories are facing their worst ever national election result in next week's Euro Elections. Polling at 24% just six weeks ago, they're now edging close to a single figure number. The prospect of them finishing in FIFTH place behind the Brexit Party, Labour, Lib Dems and the Greens is a real one. In footballing terms it feels like Celtic finishing in the bottom half of the Scottish Premiership. It is unsustainable.

Alarm Bells

The alarm bells are now wailing at CCHQ. The 1922 Committee (the unseen backbench machine who call the Tory shots) have called Mrs May up to their den and demanded she sets an exit day. Currently unspecified, she'd love to hang on to the autumn but I very much doubt they will allow her that luxury.

Thursday could be her last rites. If the Tories have a disaster at the ballot box she simply has to go quickly. Enough is enough. Margaret Thatcher spoke of the men in grey suits who ordered her out in 1990, and 29 years on those figures of death will reappear outside May's door offering no salvation. Her political damage far outweighs the Iron Lady's in November 1990.

I've backed June as her month of exit at 4/1 but there's still some 21/10 with Paddy Power. I've also backed May at 10/1. The results are not likely to be widely known until next Sunday 26th but if they're ghastly surely there's a chance of her resigning the following week? I think so.

May has shown sensational stoicism and grit over the last two years but surely now she's running out of road? The end is nigh for Theresa. Surely.

Best Bets

Theresa May Exit – June 2019 (21/10 Paddy Power)

Theresa May Exit – May 2019 (10/1 Paddy Power)
