Will Man City's treble hopes be dashed by Watford in FA Cup final?

With the FA Cup final now set, the FC crew explain what Watford will have to get right in order to have a chance against Manchester City.

Leeds United's stunning capitulation against Derby at Elland Road cost us in midweek but there's an immediate chance to get back to winning ways on Saturday as Manchester City and Watford contest the 138th FA Cup final.

Running total: -£57.70

The Banker

Manchester City are a seriously short price to complete the final leg of a glorious domestic treble by beating Watford in Saturday's FA Cup final. Pep Guardiola's side amassed 98 points as they retained their Premier League crown, winning their final 14 matches to deny Liverpool a first title since 1990. City are a 1/5 shot to win in 90 minutes, but Watford have the team spirit and the players to give them a game at Wembley. In Gerard Deulofeu, they have a genuine match-winner (as his semifinal heroics proved) while Troy Deeney's physicality is a match for any defence when he's in the mood. City to win and both teams to score has been chalked up at 15/8 by *** and could be the way to go as we can't see Watford locking up for a 0-0 on the day.

Selection: £4 on Manchester City to win and both teams to score at 15/8 with ***.

The First Goal Flutter

Kevin De Bruyne is in contention for a starting place against the Hornets after he came on as substitute during City's 4-1 league title-clinching win at Brighton. The Belgian has had a tough season due to injury but looks sharp again, and could be worth a punt at 10/1 to score first. De Bruyne is a dead-ball specialist who has the class to light up Saturday's Wembley showpiece.

Selection: £2 on De Bruyne to score first at 10/1 with ***.

The Tasty Treble

We head to La Liga for this weekend's treble and Real Madrid look a bet at 3/5 to beat Real Betis at home. The away form of Los Blancos has been shambolic for the most part this season but they've won their last five home games in La Liga and should be too good for tenth place Betis. Elsewhere Girona look doomed and Alaves (13/10) can confirm their relegation by winning at home on Saturday evening. Add in Atletico Madrid (17/20) to win at Levante for a Spanish treble paying over 6/1. Antoine Griezmann has told Atletico he will be leaving this summer but the mercurial Frenchman can at least sign off with a win against a very mediocre Levante side.

Selection: £3 on the treble at 6.17/1 with ***.

The Euro Wager

Defences have dominated recent meetings between Napoli and Inter Milan and it could pay to go low on goals when the pair meet in the San Paolo on Sunday. None of the last four meetings between the teams has produced over 2.5 goals and with Napoli having already locked up second place in Serie A we feel goals could again be at a premium.

Selection: £2 on Under 1.5 goals at 7/2 with ***.

The Wildcard Tip

Celtic face Hearts on Sunday in a dress rehearsal for next weekend's Scottish Cup final. The Hoops battered the Jambos 5-0 the last time the teams met at Parkhead and, while a similar result looks unlikely, the smart play could be a punt on Neil Lennon's men to win without conceding.

Selection: £1 on Celtic to win 2-0 at 6/1 with ***.

Mr Fixit’s Top Tips: Deadly Dutch bow out on a high

FOR those who love to go Dutch you'll need to wait for another few months.

The curtain came down on the regular season with a goalfest as 37 strikes were recorded in nine games including a 0-0 and 1-0.

Greg struck rich again with his total goals bets and my both to score treble landed at 23-10.

The two low scorers will have saved bookies a fortune as the other seven saw both scoring and go over 3.5 goals. That included Ajax's 4-1 win at De Graafschap that sealed the title for the first time since 2014.

My other btts double was beaten by Atalanta not scoring in the Italian Cup Final and that was a surprise to many.

Game of the night was Leeds v Derby with Frank Lampard's men coming back from 2-0 down on aggregate to win 4-3 and book a final meeting against Aston Villa.

In a fiery game both sides were reduced to 10 and well done to kevinmac who tipped that at 35-1 on his preview – and I hope Rams fan nathan enjoyed a cracking 90 minutes.

There were plenty of other winners and let's hope for more tonight although it's much quieter.

I hope to see goals in second leg of the League One semi-final between Portsmouth and Sunderland while there are games in countries I don't normally look at including Belgium, Switzerland and Sweden. I'll do a little research in the morning to see if I can come up with anything.

Meanwhile, check out SlipsTips' Portsmouth vs Sunderland preview and he has another card tip.

Portsmouth v Sunderland: Will Pompey thrive at Fratton?

FOOTBALL LEAGUE fanatic Tom Love (@TomLove_18) runs the rule over Thursday night's League One play-off encounter from Fratton Park between Portsmouth and Sunderland.

Portsmouth v Sunderland | Thursday 16th May 2019, 19:45 | Sky Sports

This tie is tantalisingly poised with Sunderland running out narrow 1-0 winners in the first leg at the Stadium of Light on Saturday courtesy of a superb volley by big-game merchant Chris Maguire. That makes the Black Cats as short as 4/11 to book their place at Wembley but with the away goals rule not applying here that does look a tad short, in my eyes.

Sunderland hung on with 10 men after Turkish defender Alim Ozturk was controversially dismissed in the second half, that decision has been overturned though and he is therefore available to play. I’m not sure it’s much of a boost for the Wearside outfit though, whoever has played in their back four has been far from convincing.

Jack Ross’ men have seen 72% of games feature both sides scoring. Their performance levels on the road are another worry, they sit 16th in the away Expected Goals (xG) standings, posting a meagre 48% ratio and that has to be cause for concern.

There are positive points for the Mackems though. The visitors have lost a league-low five League One games this season, mainly due to their penchant for draws (19), however a share of the spoils will see them progress. They’re also coming up against a Portsmouth side who’ve failed to win in their last four games.

Pompey to thrive at Fratton?

Pompey gaffer Kenny Jackett wasn’t overly downbeat after that first leg reverse. The former Wolves boss was philosophical post game, saying “It’s still evenly balanced and we have to make our home advantage count on Thursday evening. We are capable of that”.

Jackett is confident his side can thrive on what’s likely to be a raucous atmosphere on the South Coast, but he has eluded to the fact his players have been preparing for the possibilities of it going all the way. “We definitely practice penalties. We have whenever it’s been relevant this season, although we won’t dwell on it” Jackett mused.

The Portsmouth manager is right to be confident and can find solace in the underlying performance data of his side when playing as hosts. The Blues ranked second on the xG metric when looking specifically at games at their Fratton Park base with a strong 59% ratio.

Jackett will be further encouraged when looking at the oppositions aforementioned comparative metrics. What’s more, the home team could welcome back full back Lee Brown and striker Brett Pitman on Thursday night, the pair have trained throughout the week and that’s a big boost for the Hampshire club, their added experience could prove vital.

The betting angles

My main selection here is to combine two selections using ***’s BetBuilder and that is Portsmouth in the Double Chance market and Over 1 Goal which brings about a more than fair 10/11 quote. I do fancy the hosts to have the better of this game for all the reasons noted above, however, I am wary of the volume of draws Sunderland collect, hence the insurance of the double chance option.

I would expect at least a couple of goals too. EFL play-off semi-final second legs see a hike to 2.60 goals per-game on average compared to 2.10 in the first leg. Throw in the fact that 87% of the duos league matches this term have seen two or more goals and you can probably see my thinking.

I could easily see this one going the distance too and with the omission of the away goals rule it makes the chances of extra-time and possible penalties a very real one. I was tempted to put up Pompey to win by a single goal but I’m going to take a chance on a bigger price and plump for the 7/1 (Skybet) on either team to win on penalties.

We’ve seen two second leg ties go all the way to spot kicks already and given the cagey nature of play-off games with such magnitude, it’s often the case that teams are naturally more risk-averse in the closing stages. There’s been little to choose between the pair all season and I can see that being the case once more.

Best Bets

Portsmouth v Sunderland – Portsmouth double chance and Over 1 Goal (10/11 ***)

Portsmouth v Sunderland – Either team to win on penalties (7/1 Skybet)

Sevilla v Athletic Bilbao Predictions & Betting Odds – 18th May 2019

Sevilla v Athletic Bilbao Betting Tips – La Liga, 18th May 3.15pm

This is a big game with sixth place up for grabs. Athletic Bilbao would take sixth spot away from Sevilla if they produce an away win in this one. But Sevilla actually have a bigger prize, because if they win and results involving Valencia and Getafe go their way, then it means that they would grab a Champions League place next season. Read our predictions for Sevilla v Athletic Bilbao.

Sevilla News and Form

There was a 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid last weekend by Sevilla, which was a good point. However, it has left them with only one win in their last five played in the top flight (D1 L3). So their form has deserted them a bit at the end of the season in terms of pushing for a top-four finish.

The window is only narrowly open for them. Sevilla are W11 D3 L4 at home this season in the league. They were on a three-match winning streak on home soil before suffering a 3-0 reverse in their last home game against Leganes. Three of the four home losses which they have suffered this season have been against the five teams sitting above them in the table.

Sevilla have delivered well in front of goal, averaging just over two goals per home fixture. 61% of their home fixtures have ended up over 2.5 goals. Of the eleven home success that they have taken, six of them have been by a margin of at least two goals.

None of Sevilla’s last seven home games have ended in a draw. They have scored 70% of their home goals in the second half of games. Sevilla have opened the scoring in 12 of their 18 home fixtures this season. With just one clean sheet in their last six (home and away) will their defence hold up?

Sevilla v Athletic Bilbao Head to Head

Athletic Bilbao claimed a 2-0 win over Sevilla in the league
Sevilla claimed a 3-2 aggregate win over Bilbao in the Copa del Rey
Both teams have scored in one of the last six meetings
Sevilla have won their last four home games in the league against Bilbao

Key-Facts – Sevilla v Athletic Bilbao

  • Sevilla have won one of their last five league games
  • Sevilla have just the one clean sheet in six
  • Athletic Bilbao have won just for away games all season

Athletic Bilbao News and Form

Bilbao collected a 3-1 win over Celta Vigo last time out in league action. That leaves them at W4 D1 L3 in their last eight, so it’s been a bit of mixed fortunes from them. They have taken only four away wins all season (D6 L8) so that has been where their push for a top six finish has fallen down really.

Athletic Bilbao have only gone D1 L4 in their five road games against teams in the top six. They have come up a bit short in scoring on their travels, as they average only 0.8 goals per away game this season. If they win this, they beat Sevilla on the head to head between the two clubs to sneak sixth place.

Only 39% of Bilbao’s away games have ended over 2.5 goals this season. They have taken a clean sheet in only 17% of their away games. The four away wins which they have collected this season have been by a margin of just the one goal. Five of their eight away defeats have been by a one-goal margin only.

Athletic Bilbao have not been involved in an away draw in eight now and they have scored 60% of their away goals in the first half of games. They have conceded 62% of their away goals after the half time break.

Sevilla v Athletic Bilbao Tips & Odds

Both teams to score at 4/5
Sevilla to win by a one-goal margin at 11/4
* (Betting Odds were taken from *** on May 15th, 2019 at 3:20 p.m.)

Sevilla v Athletic Bilbao Predictions

Sevilla to win: The away form of Bilbao hasn’t been great this season so that may indicate that Sevilla can push on for the home win. Whether or not that is is going to get them to the Champions League is a different matter. Sevilla to win by a one-goal margin.

Bayern Munich v Eintracht Frankfurt Predictions & Betting Odds – 18th May 2019

Bayern Munich v Eintracht Frankfurt Betting Tips – Bundesliga, 18th May 2.30pm

Bayern Munich have one hand on the title for sure, but the interesting thing here is the challenge that Frankfurt bring to the table. Bayern only need a point to secure the league title again, however, Frankfurt will show up knowing that a win could get them to a top-four finish and a place in the Champions League next season. So they will turn up with more than a little something to play for. Read our predictions for Bayern Munich v Eintracht Frankfurt.

Bayern Munich News and Form

Bayern Munich missed out on a chance to secure the league title last weekend. That was because of a 0-0 draw at RB Leipzig. That moved their undefeated streak of form to 13 in the top flight, which means that they just need a point to guarantee themselves the title. The only way that they will miss on the title defence is with a loss in this one and a win for Borussia Dortmund in their match. Bayern Munich’s home record this season is W12 D3 L1 and they are on a huge ten-match winning streak there.
 

It is a twelve match undefeated streak of home form which they are currently on at the moment, netting an average of 2.75 goals per home fixture. They have conceded at under a goal per game in the top flight in their home campaign. In total there has been a clean sheet from Bayern in 44% of their home games, but still, 69% of them have gone over 2.5 goals. 9 of their 12 home wins this season have been by a margin of at least two goals.

Bayern Munich have struck the first goal of the game in all but two of their sixteen home games. They have been leading at the halftime break in nine of them. Bayern Munich are the top scores in the division this season. Given that they are finishing on home soil in this one, the title still looks full destined to end up back in their grasp.

Bayern Munich v Eintracht Frankfurt Head to Head

Bayern Munich took a 3-0 win at Frankfurt in December
Bayern also claimed the German Super Cup against Frankfurt in August
Frankfurt have won one of their last 17 games against Bayern Munich
Bayern have taken a win in five of their last six against Frankfurt

Key-Facts – Bayern Munich v Eintracht Frankfurt

  • Bayern are undefeated in twelve home league games
  • Bayern Munich are the top scorers in the Bundesliga
  • Frankfurt have one one of their last five away games

Eintracht Frankfurt News and Form

It is interesting the position that Frankfurt are in. They are holding onto a top six place at the moment, and will probably end the season with one. Just a point will ensure that they are a top six side this season. But they are only the one point out of fourth place so the lure of a Champions League spot is still there for them. So they do have that incentive to push forward for. They are winless in their last five top-flight games though, so their form has not been there (D2 L3). Overall this season they have posted an away record of W7 D5 L4 and just one of those wins happened at a side currently sat in the top ten.

Frankfurt have taken a D1 L3 record from their four away games against the current top five teams. They have done alright in front of goal, having averaged 1.7 goals per road fixture. That’s a pretty good return from them. Almost 70% of their road games have finished over 2.5 goals. Their current dip in form has seen them go D1 L1 in their last two away games, but before that had put together a three-match winning away streak. It’s understandable that their league form did drop a bit with them also making it to the semi-finals of the Europa League where they were beaten by Chelsea on penalties. That’s a lot of extra work. Can they raise for themselves to at least avoid defeat in this tough away game? Frankfurt are on a five-match scoring streak on their travels.

Bayern Munich to win & both teams to score at 21/20
Under 3.5 goals at 13/10
* (Betting Odds were taken from *** on May 15th, 2019 at 3:20 p.m.)

Bayern Munich v Eintracht Frankfurt Predictions

Bayern to win: Bayern Munich are too good of a side on home soil to let this chance to wrap up the title in front of their own fans pass. They aren’t likely going to be that stressed about it all, but because Frankfurt have a lot to play for, Bayern to win & both teams to score is a solid proposition.

Deontay Wilder v Dominic Breazeale Predictions & Winner Odds

A huge fight is coming up on the weekend. The pressure is all on Deontay Wilder in this one which is a WBC heavyweight battle. Wilder, aka the Bronze Bomber, puts his undefeated career record on the line for the first time after that epic draw against Tyson Fury last December. He takes on Dominic Breazeale who is going for his second shot at a heavyweight title.

Wilder avoids the big guns

Deontay Wilder has to go through Dominic Breazeale first before any tantalising battle against one of the division’s other greats happens. The one criticism about the Bronze Bomber throughout his long and successful career is that he hadn’t really gone up against top opponents. That changed when he met Tyson Fury in December.

It was some duel, one of the most memorable nights in boxing as Fury got up from the canvas from a late knockdown to settle the fight as a draw. Wilder though is such a heavy hitter and he has 39 knockouts in his 40 career wins. That’s still some record whoever he has been up against. It was interesting in that bout against Fury, that even though Wilder put his opponent down twice, he was heavily outboxed in the fight.

Given that he is taking on a fighter who has an impressive record of knockouts as well, it is not looking like a fight that will go the distance. Wilder is 2/5 to win by a knockout in this one and the fight is as short as 2/7 to go the distance* (betting odds taken from BetVictor on May 14th, 2019 at 9:01 pm). Wilder has only gone the distance twice in previous 40 pro career fights. So what is he going up against in Breazeale?

Can Breazele handle Wilder?

Breazeale is the same age (33) as Wilder is and he matches up to him in height and just about in reach as well. So this feels like a momentous fight for both. Breazeale has already said that a defeat for Wilder in this bout could well send the reigning champion into retirement. That actually makes a bit of sense but can Brezeale actually inflict the defeat on him? He is a solid fighter, but it’s not someone who is in the same category of Wilder really in terms of technical ability and sheer power.

Breazile went up against Anthony Joshua for the IBF heavyweight title in June 2016. He was knocked out early in the seventh. He has won his three fights since then, the most notable one of those was against Eric Molina. So the American is certainly reputable and he is ranked fourth in the division in the WBC. He falls a long way short in the other organization though, not being on the radar in the top fifteen in the WBA, WBO or IBF.

Just like Wilder, Breazeale has gone the distance just twice in his career and he takes a 20-1 career record into this one. That lone defeat, as mentioned was against Joshua a few years ago. 18 of his 20 career wins have been by a knockout. A loss for him in this one and he’s unlikely to be back in the area against any of the top heavyweights again.

Prediction

It would be a shock to see Wilder lose this one. He has still had his sights on frying much bigger fish like Fury and Joshua down the line. So there is pressure on him to stay focused and not let any complacency come him.

He has the technical ability to handle himself, and it’s hard to see this one going the distance. Breazeale is a confident fighter and it may take Wilder until the second half of the fight. Wilder Round 7-12 in round group betting for 15/8 odds* (betting odds taken from BetVictor on May 14th, 2019 at 9:01 pm).

Manchester City News and Form

What a run it was from Manchester City to retain the Premier League title. A fourteen match winning streak got them there. That was their second title of the campaign after having beaten Chelsea on a penalty shoot-out in the final of the EFL Cup in February. So now they shift full attention to the FA Cup. Manchester City have won fourteen of their last fifteen games in all competitions, the only loss in the sequence a costly one against Spurs in the Champions League.

Digging back a little bit deeper into the form of the Citizens, then they are W20 D1 L1 in their last 22 games in all competitions. City have only given up the one defeat in their last five games in all competitions, and their form at times in the FA Cup this season has been spectacular. They opened with a 7-0 home win over Rotherham, before beating fellow Premier League side Burnley 5-0 at the Etihad. After a win at Newport in the fifth round, they found themselves 2-0 down against Swansea in the quarterfinals.

Not even that could stop them as they dug out a 3-2 win. That put them through to a semi-final against Brighton. Gabriel Jesus struck in the fourth minute of the game, the only goal of the game, as Brighton failed to mount any kind of attacking threat in the game. City are looking for what would be their sixth FA Cup title, the most recent of them coming in 2011. They have also lost five finals and the last time they were in the FA Cup final, they suffered a shock reverse as they were toppled 1-0 by Wigan.

Manchester City v Watford Head to Head

The Citizens won both 2018/19 EPL league meetings
City have won their last ten games in all competitions against Watford
Each of the last five meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Both teams have scored in each of the last three meetings
Man City are W3 D2 L1 against Watford from previous FA Cup meetings

Key-Facts – Manchester City v Watford

  • Man City have won 14 of their last 15 games in all competitions
  • Watford are without a clean sheet in twelve games
  • Watford have won one of their last six in all competitions

Watford News and Form

Watford will have a big day at Wembley, this being just their second ever appearance in the Final. Their first one was back in 1984 when they were managed by Graham Taylor and John Barnes was playing in attack for them. So it has been a while since their fans enjoyed a day like this. The worrying thing for their fans though is that Watford didn’t have a great end to the season. They picked up just the one win (over 90 minutes) in their final seven games of the season. They suffered a defeat in each of their last three, shipping a total of nine goals in the sequence of fixtures.

So that has to raise the question as to whether or not they have ran out of steam at the wrong time? The last time that they took a clean sheet was back at QPR in the FA Cup tie in February. That is no clean sheet in twelve for them now. Heading into a fixture against the mighty attacking threat that Manchester City bring, then that’s not something to instil a great deal of confidence. Watford have had a pretty strong FA Cup campaign really, most of it has gone smoothly. They opened with back to back away wins against Woking and Newcastle, posting a 2-0 success in both of those fixtures.

They showed good composure with a 1-0 win at QPR in the fifth round and then they were at home for the first time as they hosted Crystal Palace in the quarterfinals. That was a tough game, with the Eagles throwing down a great challenge. However, Watford got across the line with a 2-1 win. Then in their semi-final at Wembley against Wolves, with just over ten minutes left in the game, it looked as if they were about to crash out of the competition. A piece of magic from Gerard Deulofeu gave them late hope, before a last-minute penalty from Troy Deeney sent the game to extra time, Deulofeu winning it for them in the 104th minute.

Manchester City v Watford Tips & Odds

Manchester City to win to nil at 5/6
Man City to win by a two-goal margin 3/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from *** on May 14th, 2019 at 11:51 p.m.)

Manchester City v Watford Predictions

Manchester City to win: It’s hard to see a confident, buoyant Manchester City side not completing the job at Wembley. Watford are struggling badly at the back at the moment and that means that City should get chances. They may be even comfortable enough to get the win to nil.

PGA Championship 2019 Predictions

Posted: May 15, 2019

Hope everyone is pumped for this weeks golf action!

We have the PGA Championship and it should be a good one.

It’s going to require an exceptional performance as this is a very difficult course. It’s even got a warning at the beginning to let amateurs know – you’re going to get embarassed here!

We go into this tournament on a bit of a decent run. Nothing huge but I correctly tipped Tiger to win the Masters, Kuchar to Top 5 the RBC Heritage, Suri to Top 5 the Trophee Hassan II and then last week I called Scott Piercy Top 5 in the Byron Nelson.

He came very close to winning that one too.

Here’s the betting slip for that one:

So this week let’s focus on the PGA Championship. Bet at *** who are offering 8 places on the E/W bets.

PGA Championship 2019 Predictions:

I’ll cover who I am betting and then mention a few notables I’m not backing.

I’m backing Brooks Koepka to win. Golf is a funny game when it comes to betting. You see – the odds for golf are obviously pretty crazy compared to NBA/NHL etc. It’s a big risk. However every so often there comes up someon who you just have to blindly bet basically no matter the odds. And Koepka is that guy. With his Majors History and his performances I’ve just got to back him here.

I’ve got Sergio Garcia to win & Top 8 as my final BIG bet. Him and Koepka are my primary bets. Garcia ticks most of the boxes. Only one he doesn’t tick is the Majors History – a lot of missed cuts lately. However I think he has tons of value in him.

I’ve got a smaller bet on Xander Schauffele To Win and Top 8. I loved what he did at the Masters but I am not too happy with the odds on him. I don’t know if he can handle this course too well but after the way he played at the Masters I’ve got to back him.

I’m also a sucker taking Kuchar to win and Top 8. Kuchar and Majors man – not a good combo. Every tournament that comes out he is a contender for betting and I just find it so hard to pull the trigger. Screw it I am doing it here – least I have my meal planned Sunday when I eat the egg off my face.

Finally I am taking Molinari to win and Top 8. Smaller bet on him though as I don’t know how he responds after the Masters and I’m a bit concerned.

Oh I also have a nice wee long shot bet on Lucas Glover to win and Top 8.

Quick thoughts on others:

Rory McIlroy: The boy just can’t finish these days. Not sure what is going on but with his final round play lately, zero trust in him.

Dustin Johnson: One of those golfers where I really feel you have to bet based on your gut. I could see him doing it but just don’t have the gut feeling enough to advise it.

Tiger Woods. I see nothing to justify his price. I hope to hell he is killing it at the end though but I think putting will let him down.

Justin Rose. Struggled at this course the last few times he has played it.

Jon Rahm. Could be a sneaky dark horse pick but not one I can advice.

Jason Day. Don’t think he is fully healthy.

York Dante Festival 2019: Day 3 Betting Tips

With declarations out for day three of the Dante Festival at York, we have three selections for Friday's action.

York Dante Festival 2019 Day 3 Betting Tips

13:50 York

Fleeting Princess to Win and Each-way @ 13/2 - BET NOW

The opening race on day three of the Dante Meeting is a 5f Listed fillies contest for juveniles and this can go the way of the Jeremy Noseda-trained Fleeting Princess.

The selection made a winning debut when justifying odds-on favouritism to score by a length in a 5f maiden at Yarmouth (good) at the end of last month. 

While the runner-up that day was a fellow debutant, it's notable that two of the beaten horses in the five-runner field had previous experience and Fleeting Princess performed well having taken a keen hold when racing prominently prior to leading just over a furlong from the finish.

Noseda has done well with his sprinting juvenile fillies in the past, winning at Royal Ascot with the likes of La Chunga and Sander Camillo. With a stronger pace in this contest likely to suit Fleeting Princess, she can take her next step on the road to emulating that pair with leading jockey Ryan Moore taking the ride.

Lucius Tiberius to Win and Each-way @ 9/1 - BET NOW

Trainer Charlie Appleby has his string in decent form at present and the Newmarket handler comes into this contest with a 29 per cent strike-rate (4/14) in the last fortnight.

Lucius Tiberius, an ex-Aidan O'Brien-trained gelding, is the trainer's representative in this event and he shaped with promise when finishing 6L fourth behind stablemate Ghaiyyath when contesting a Group 2 contest over 1m2f at Longchamp (good) on stable and seasonal debut last month.

Dropping into handicap company next time out, the son of Camelot finished a good 5L fifth in a 1m2f handicap at Epsom (good) later that month and he shaped as if this slight step up in distance would suit on that occasion.

The selection was the winner of a valuable handicap off a 1lb higher mark at Leopardstown (1m2f, good-to-firm) in July last year and he looks capable of recording a fourth career victory in this competitive middle-distance handicap. 

16:05 York

Dream World to Win and Each-way @ 8/1 - BET NOW

Michael Appleby's Dream World has shown that she is a filly on the up in recent starts and she completed a double when successful in a good ground handicap over this 7f distance at Yarmouth at the end of last month.

Prior to that, the daughter of Dream Ahead had made a winning return to turf with a success over 6f at Doncaster (good) four days earlier. The drop back in distance appeared to suit on each occasion with the fillies' first two starts for this stable coming over an extended 1m at Wolverhampton in March and 1m2f at Lingfield subsequently.

Notably, the switch to a sound surface on turf has also appeared to suit and taking that into account any rain would hinder her chances. 

Dream World has a decent draw in stall number four and with a lightweight here she looks to hold solid each-way claims in this fillies-only handicap.

May 15th, 2019 NHL Betting Tips

Written by Graeme & Scott on Wednesday, May 15th, 2019

After sweeping the New York Islanders, who swept the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Carolina Hurricanes are now in danger of being swept by the Boston Bruins.

It’d be amazing if that happened and then the Bruins got swept in the finals.

It was a close game. The Hurricanes PP let them down again. There was also quite a few players who really should have scored. Rask was a puck sponge at times but there was quite a few chances the Canes should have buried. I mean bloody hell right off the get go Teravainen had an open net and missed.

Hard to see the Canes having what it takes to perform the reverse sweep.

We’ll talk more about that one tomorrow. For today we have Game 3 of the Western Conference final which moves venues as St. Louis play host. This series is tied 1-1.

Here’s our thoughts – and hey as the NHL action dwindles down, be sure to check out Graemes golf betting tips site. PGA Championship Tips were just posted! And he’ll be posting tips there all Summer long.

Sharks vs Blues Game 3 Betting Tips:

Graeme: Sharks did it again – opened with a big win, then dropped the second game. Against the Knights they went to Vegas and lost two in a row. They went to Colorado and won however in the last series.

The Blues had that bizarre series with the Jets where neither team seemed to be able to win at home until the final game . Even against the Stars they dropped two here so home ice isn’t the big factor.

I feel like it’s a statement game for the Sharks. They want to come in and make a statement tonight and keep the Blues on edge. They should be up for this one. 0.5u on Sharks to win incl OT/SO

Scott: The Sharks are in familiar territory here. In the two series heading up to this point they won the first game only to lose the next.

The Sharks aren’t getting the depth scoring they will need to make a push to the finals. The Blues are getting depth scoring but nothing from their big guns.

This is a crucial game in the series and with it being in St. Louis I would like to think its the Blues who should win. But with the way the Sharks have played this postseason its anyones guess. Game 1 hit 9 goals, game 2 hit 6. I’ll go with the over here as predicting a winner is tricky.

Over 5.5 incl OT/SO – 0.5u

Darts: Best bets from Week 15 of the Premier League

DARTS expert expert Kyle Brown (@Kyleianbrown) talks us through the 15th and final week of regular season Premier League action, picking out his favourite fancies.

Week 15 – Thursday 16th May 2019 | Leeds | Sky Sports

*Predicted winners in bold, neither indicates draw.

The Week 15 Betting Angles

The regular season concludes this week in Leeds with six of the eight players having something to play for. Rob Cross can cement his place at the top of the Premier League and end Michael van Gerwen’s six-year league phase dominance should he equal (or better) the Dutchman’s result.

James Wade, Daryl Gurney, Mensur Suljovic and Gerwyn Price can all finish anywhere from third to sixth, so each match will have some sort of play-off implication.

Gerwyn Price v Peter Wright | Thursday 16th May 2019, 19:15 | Sky Sports

Only a win for Gerwyn Price will give him any hope of appearing in the final four at the 02 Arena, London, next week. In my opinion, he is a massive price at 13/10 (William Hill) to defeat Peter “Snakebite” Wright, considering that the Scotsman has nothing meaningful left to play for.

Scoring-wise they actually match up relatively similar. Wright’s 3-dart average of 95.51 is just shy of Price’ 96.00. In addition, they both have a virtually identical checkout percentage (42.52% – 42.44). However, Wright has only managed to convert those stats into a pathetic two wins out of a possible 15, with a -27 leg difference (with Price on +1).

Price really couldn’t have asked for a better opponent to face this week with the pressure on. There is a reason he is called “The Iceman”, and with all eyes on him during the opener he shouldn’t disappoint.

Given the stats, I’d steer clear of any 180 or checkout markets, but if there’s going to be a winner it will be the Welshman, Price at an appealling 13/10 (William Hill).

Daryl Gurney v Michael Smith | Thursday 16th May 2019, 20:15 | Sky Sports

Regardless of the opening tie’s result, Daryl Gurney will also be in the same position as Price, where he will most likely need a win to give himself a realistic chance of making the finals. Again, drawing similarities from the opener, Gurney will be grateful that he is facing the only other opponent with nothing to play for, Michael Smith.

Smith has been sub-par for the entirety of this campaign, disappointing just about everybody given that he was the bookies choice as the most likely to topple reigning champion Michael van Gerwen.

The biggest discrepancy between the two players facing off this week is without a doubt their ability to finish a leg. Gurney hits the double 40.09% of the time, compared to the 35.85% (the worst in the league) posted by Smith. That figure is the biggest factor in Smith’s downfall this year, and until he can rectify it he will continue to struggle.

Gurney therefore looks good value to hit the highest checkout in the match, priced at 4/5 on Sky Bet. And just like the first tie, I’m happy to recommend backing the player who has the most to lose and the most to gain, Gurney – 7/5 on Betfair.

Michael Van Gerwen v Mensur Suljovic | Thursday 16th May 2019, 21:15 | Sky Sports

Michael van Gerwen will not like sitting in second. He is a fierce competitor who has done nothing short of dominate the darting world in the past few years. He is the only player odds on with bookmakers, up against Mensur Suljovic, who will likely be needing maximum points if either Price or Gurney win their respective matches.

In short, Suljovic could play the game of his life and I would still expect him to succumb to the reigning world champion. It is exactly this sort of game which sees MvG raise his game to its absolute best.

Suljovic posts the second worst average (95.74) of the remaining eight players, and only the aforementioned Smith is worse on the doubles than the Austrian is (39.73%). It’s therefor perhaps fortunate that finishing in the top four is still a possibility.

Van Gerwen, priced at 3/10 with William Hill, will be a good addition to an accumulator, but the value lies elsewhere.

Suljovic and Van Gerwen are the two lowest 180 scorers this year, only hitting 39 and 38, respectively (around 2.60 per-game). With that in mind, I fancy Under 6.5 Match 180’s to land, priced at 4/5 on ***.

James Wade v Rob Cross | Thursday 16th May 2019, 22:15 | Sky Sports

The night rounds off with James Wade against Rob Cross. If the night goes the way of the bookmaker favourites (Price, Gurney and MvG) then Wade will be guaranteed a top four spot based on leg difference – he only needs to get a result if 7/1 shot Suljovic upsets van Gerwen.

Cross equalling (or bettering) MvG’s result will ensure he is the first player other than Van Gerwen to win the league phase since 2012.

Regardless of the nights earlier ties, I expect Rob Cross will want to continue his momentum going into the final and put on a show, proving why he is a worthy league winner.

Cross at even-money (Coral) is extremely tempting, and the only situation I’d suggest avoiding that price is if Wade needs a point to qualify (that scenario also means Cross has the top spot locked up).

Cross has the second-most 180’s (51), the second-highest average (100.18), the second-most legs won against throw (37) and the tied-second highest checkout percent (45.50%). But don’t be fooled, he would be more than worthy of finishing in 1st place.

From a betting standpoint, it’s worth noting that he beats Wade in all the aforementioned stats. Wade has been good this term, but Cross has simply been better.

I like Cross’ value to win, and also expect him to win well so take the -2.5 leg handicap that is available at 7/4 on Sky Bet.

Best Bets

Gerwyn Price v Peter Wright – Gerwyn Price to win (13/10 William Hill)

Daryl Gurney v Michael Smith – Daryl Gurney highest checkout (4/5 Sky Bet)

Michael van Gerwen v Mensur Suljovic – Under 6.5 180’s (4/5 ***)

James Wade v Rob Cross – Rob Cross -2.5 (7/4 Sky Bet)

William Hill Receive ASA Condemnation – Bookmaker News

William Hill have, yet again, fallen foul of the Advertising Standards Authority. The UK bookmaker placed an advertisement on dating site Tinder which included a link to its betting app. But the attempt to indirectly lure lovelorn punters into having a bet in the run up to the Cheltenham Festival in March was deemed to have breached the ASA’s code of conduct after the authority investigated following a complaint.

Hills did remove the advert immediately after the complaint but the ASA decided that the wording inferred that those who gambled would be more likely to develop a friendship into a sexual relationship and that was inappropriate.

Tinder said it initially reviewed the ad to ensure its content was not socially irresponsible, offensive or targeting minors, and that it passed the initial screening process but this is not the first time that William Hill have been in trouble with the Advertising Standards Authority. Since 2015, the ASA has investigated nine complaints against Hills and found against the betting firm in four of them, including one which advertised casino games in an app featuring a Super Mario Kart game.

There was further bad news for the betting company this week after it was revealed that revenues from FOBTs in their shops have dropped by 40% since the new maximum stake of £2 was introduced. All bookmakers were forecasting a slump so recent losses in takings are not a shock and maybe the Armageddon that everyone was gloomily anticipating may not materialise. Despite fears, there has been no wholesale shutting of high street shops (up to 900 in William Hill’s case), though the group has written to many of its landlords and asked for rate reductions. What is glossed over is that the company’s online takings actually rose by 8% and that their business in the USA has taken off since the federal lifting of a ban on sports betting. As with all multi-national companies, the big picture should not be forgotten.

Rob Eddy's Racing Tips: Thursday 16th May

With a wide selection of meetings taking place on Thursday, we have three tips for readers from Newmarket, Salisbury and Fontwell.

Best Thursday Horse Racing Betting Tips

18:55 Newmarket

Hameem to Win and Each-way @ 13/8 - BET NOW

Hameem showed plenty of promise early last summer when finishing runner-up in three consecutive starts in novice and maiden company, culminating in a 4L defeat in a 1m4f maiden on the all-weather at Kempton in August.

However, the daughter of Teofilo stepped up on those efforts when off the mark in a 1m2f novice race at Brighton (good-to-firm) in September, while she made a winning handicap debut back up to 1m4f over this course and distance just under three weeks later.

The selection has been raised 3lb for that latest success and, while that latest victory came in a five-runner race, she shaped as if there would be more to come. Trainer John Gosden comes into this contest with a 26 per cent strike-rate (9/35) in recent weeks  and Hameem can provide him and jockey Jim Crowley with a victory in this fillies-only handicap.

14:10 Salisbury

Sufficient to Win and Each-way @ 11/2 - BET NOW

Trainer Rod Millman has his horses in decent form at present and he comes into this event with a 17 per cent strike-rate (4/24) in recent weeks. The Devon-based handler's representative in this fillies handicap is Sufficient, the winner of a 7f handicap on good-to-firm ground here in September last year.

The daughter of Showcasing caught the eye in finishing fourth over the same course and distance here on seasonal debut just under three weeks ago.

Ridden by Hollie Doyle that day, the grey held claims inside the final furlong prior to being badly hampered and ultimately had lost her chance prior to staying on inside the final half furlong.

The filly shaped as if she would appreciate further and while this 1m2f distance represents a marked step up in distance, her breeding suggests she is worth a chance and is taken to register a second course victory with Rob Hornby taking the ride this time around.  

18:05 Fontwell

Kit Barry to Win and Each-way @ 10/11 - BET NOW

The David Dando-trained Kit Barry has been running well in defeat in hunter chases in recent starts, following up an 18L third behind the useful mare Theatre Territory at Exeter (3m, good-to-soft) a month ago with a good 9L second in a competitive event over an extended 3m1f at Cheltenham (good-to-soft) just under a fortnight ago. That marked the second time in two years that Kit Barry has placed at the Cheltenham Hunter chase meeting and he is making his debut at this venue. 

The selection, a three-time winner, including twice during 2018, has his regular jockey Charlie Dando in the saddle here and this particular hunter chase looks markedly weaker than the ones that Kit Barry has been contesting of late.

With the above in mind, the 11-year-old, who has placed in five of his seven starts over regulation fences to date, is taken to register his first chase victory in this small field novices' hunter contest.

PGA Tour Betting Picks: PGA Championship

After just a lovely week for fans of low-scoring golf at the Byron Nelson Classic where it was an absolute birdie fest, we head to Long Island, New York for the PGA’s second major of the year, the 2019 PGA Championship.

Before we get to the Major festivities in N.Y., let’s see how last week went. The Byron Nelson was a tough one to pick because we didn’t really know who was using the tournament as a warmup and who was out there to win, but we did our best.

My first pick was A-A-Ron Wise to outplay the former Masters Champion and perfectly round baby-faced assassin Patrick Reed.

Hey, we got this one at (-110).

While Aaron only managed to finish T-43 with a score of -9, Reed did just a bit worse at 6 under par completing his four rounds tied for 63rd.

My next pick was my most profitable of the week in any sport as I took Scott Piercy to finish inside the top ten and the Las Vegan finished two strokes behind the winner Korean Kang Sung Oon at 21 under for a share of the runner up position.

Scott came thru for the (+500) win!

Something told me to be high on Marc Leishman last week but his back had other ideas. I took him to have the lead after Thursday and also a top ten finish.

Luckily, he didn’t even get started so I hope you got your money back.

Branden Grace was another player I thought would perform well but he couldn’t get the flat stick going to all weekend.

As far as the favorites went, I took young American and Japanese superstars Brooks Koepka and Hideki Matsuyama to finish top ten.

Hideki finished just outside the top twenty, and Koepka didn’t pack it in early as I thought he might with a PGA Championship title to defend this week as he came in 4th. This happened, even though some experts were saying he had no intention of winning.

I’m going to give him more credit than that.

So, overall a very good week for us at an unpredictable tournament with nearly zero course history.

Now, onto this week’s Major from “Luong Island”.

It’s a Major tournament, so I don’t need to tell you all of the superstars that will be in attendance.

That’s “Everybody!” for the non-90s kids out there.

As I mentioned earlier, last year’s winner was the man who has won three out of his last seven majors played, Brooks “Big Poppa Pump” Koepka.

Hey, we all liked him better with the mullet when he could still do the Frankensteiner.

And no, Brooks’ arms are not nearly that big but he’s definitely got the best pair of guns on Tour.

That’s not saying much, I know, but I seriously really like him this week at plus money as a top ten bet. More on that later.

What about the big striped human hunting cat?

Well, Tiger is the favorite this week but I don’t know man…

Recently, his name was in the news for something other than his big win at Augusta a month ago.

A rather tragic event, actually.

An employee of his at one of Tiger’s restaurants in Florida got behind the wheel after drinking heavily at the job after a shift as many restaurant workers do and crashed his vehicle and perished in the process.

It was known that he was in the 12-step program as an admitted alcoholic and Woods and Tiger’s girlfriend, the bartender, still drank with him.

The man’s parents are bringing forth a lawsuit, and while depending on your personality type, it’s arguable who is at fault here. Woods did know the man personally and will undoubtedly be affected by this.

Now that the giant ivory tusked mammoth in the room has been addressed, let’s get to some of the betting action and make some more good picks.

BetOnline has the action this week.

The Course

Bethpage Black is quite the intimidating moniker and the course itself doesn’t fall short of that adjective.

This is an absolutely massive golf course which just by looking at its sheer size, you would be lead to believe that there must be several par fives.

Nope. There’s only two!

The fairways are thin with a tapered rough which isn’t too bad just off the grass but will thicken up rather drastically especially considering how much rainfall has been hammering the Big Apple and neighboring Long Island.

The greens will be nearly 100% Poana, which of course, spells trouble for some of this week’s competitors and dollar signs for others.

The bunkering is quite deep and difficult so driving accuracy and a par-mindset will be paramount for every golfer this week.

Here’s a glimpse of the beautiful and treacherous Bethpage Black golf course.

The Favorites

Dustin Johnson: +125 To Finish Inside The Top Ten

While the value here is rather arguable as the field is so deep, we have to remember that even though Dustin hasn’t been winning many “PGA” golf tournaments in the past calendar year, he is still statistically and probably the outright best golfer on the Tour.

DJ finished T-2 at the Masters alongside the previously mentioned Koepka and the X-man Xander Schauffele.

Before the Major season began, Dustin was 6th at the Valspar which is a highly comparable course to Bethpage Black. He was 5th at the Players Championship a week prior and was a winner at the World Golf Championship event at the Club De Golf Chapultepec in Old Mexico in February.

He had a top ten performance at the Genesis Open and won the Saudi International. Add those performances to a 4th place finish at the Tournament of Champions to kick off 2019 and you see why he is still the favorite this week alongside Rory McIlroy.

As you may have guessed already, statistically he is a monster.

  • 11th in strokes gained off the tee
  • 7th in strokes gained tee to green
  • 5th in strokes gained putting
  • And 2nd in strokes gained overall

With a field of the world’s best as thick as the dog’on Amazon Rainforest playing one of the most difficult courses in the country, it’s very hard to foresee a winner.

Johnson’s name is almost always up there in the top ten especially in the bigger tournaments, so throw him in there for a top ten even if it’s only for (+125).

My Pick
DJ to Finish in the Top 10
+125
Place Bet Now!

Brooks Koepka: +150 to Finish Inside The Top Ten

We already talked about the biggest guns in golf and his ability to consistently shine on the largest stage.

It is his form as of late that makes this a definite bet for me.

He was 4th last week and I mentioned his 2nd place performance at the Masters. It took the true king of the jungle, Tiger, to keep him out of first place.

It was great to see Woods get that W, but a playoff with him, Koepka, DJ, and Xander would have been an even better spectacle.

The six-foot and still somehow stocky Floridian currently ranks 5th in the FedEx Cup points standings and 3rd in the Overall World Golf Rankings.

He doesn’t nearly have as consistent of a 2019 placing record as the world number one-ranked Dustin Johnson but we know Brooks shows up when it truly counts.

The media, golf historians, and most importantly his PGA Tour peers vastly respect an athlete’s performance at Majors more than anything else.

You’re getting even better odds on him than DJ and I would have them rated at least side-by-side if not Brooks being slightly ahead going into this week’s PGA Championship.

My Pick
Koepka to Finish in the Top 10
+150
Place Bet Now!

Value Picks

Xander Schauffele: +300 To Finish Inside The Top Ten

The San Diego-native is only 25 years of age and has already shown that he could be one of the next superstars on the PGA Tour.

He started off 2019 ghost pepper-hot and is currently sitting at 2nd in the FedEx Cup points standings.

T-2 at the Masters shows he is back in form. He did, however, appear rather butt-hurt at the RBC a week later when he barely made the cut and finished tied for 63rd.

He hasn’t competed since and I imagine he’s spent a significant amount of his time outside of his Southern California home on the other end of the country in Long Island at Bethpage dialing in his technique and strategy.

He is yet to win a Major but this could very well be his time. We all know it’s coming.

His biggest struggles have been around the green where he ranks 64th on Tour but that shouldn’t rank as too much of a problem at the PGA Championship as he drives the ball well and ranks 28th in greens in regulation.

If he can keep in on the fairway off the tee, he will definitely be up there.

I just can’t ignore the value on X-man here.

My Pick
Schauffele to Finish in the Top 10
+300
Place Bet Now!

Francesco Molinari: +120 To Finish Inside The Top Twenty

The first Italian to win a Major tournament on the PGA Tour, the Open Championship last year, has a pretty good chance to take his second to the varied landscapes of his beautiful country.

The 36-year-old ranks 7th overall in the World Golf Rankings and quietly, because of all the star power ahead of him, finished tied for 5th at The Masters this year.

He won the Arnold Palmer this year with a blazing 8 under par in the fourth round.

Statistically, he’s been all over the place and doesn’t really rank very high in many categories except for sand save percentage where he is 4th.

The traps at Bethpage will be very heart-wrenching this year so his abilities may prove to save him a few strokes.

My Pick
Molinari to Finish in the Top 20
+120
Place Bet Now!

Sleepers

Sergio Garcia: +500 To Finish Inside The Top Ten

Could we pick two (+500)’s in consecutive weeks?

I think so!

I have another for you as well so don’t go anywhere!

They may be the most valuable picks for the tournament.

The Spaniard has 23 top tens at Major tournaments…

Yes, he’s been a pro for 20 years now but that is still very very impressive.

How is he playing as of late?

If you can somehow forget he didn’t make the cut in Augusta, he has three straight top fives.

Statistically, he is right there.

  • 14th in strokes gained tee to green which is a very important stat this week
  • 3rd in strokes gained approaching the green
  • And 10th in strokes gained overall

If he can get the putter going on the Poana greens where he is better than average, Serg won’t need to serge in the 4th round. He could very well already be in contention.

As far as his tournament history here, outside of Tiger Woods, he may have the best resume,

Garcia has finished 10th, 4th, and 3rd at his 3 events played here. He’s got the experience on a course rarely used by the PGA and he’s been top ten each time.

My Pick
Garcia to Finish in the Top 10
+120
Place Bet Now!

Jason Kokrak: +900 To Finish Inside The Top Ten

Mr. Consistency is hard to ignore any week nowadays. The top ten bet may be a bit of a stretch here so if you want to go with him top twenty, definitely do so.

He is (+300) there. I like the value in both spots.

His skill set is quite advantageous for this golf course, though.

  • 24th off the tee
  • 17th in tee to green and shots gained total
  • And 10th in approach

His weaknesses lay in the putting department as well as around the green. The greens are small and most of the bunkers are along the fairway.

He is 28th in greens in regulation and 32nd in driving distance. That should hopefully keep his flat stick game low on the challenge meter.

I opened about his consistency. It really is something of marvel this year, and consistency is a gambler’s favorite word.

In 2019 his finishes go like this: 18th, 20th, 20th, 37th-blah, 9th, 10th, 47th-ugh, 2nd, 7th, 16th, 22nd, and 69th at the Wells Fargo.

Quail Hollow has been a couple weeks ago, though, so let’s hope he has been spending his time on the Long Island getting dialed in.

I changed my mind, though.

Take the top twenty.

My Pick
Kokrak to Finish in the Top 20
+900
Place Bet Now!

In Conclusion

This is going to be a big week to say the very least!

Can Tiger set aside the recent distractions from the wrongful death lawsuit that is being brought against him from his former employee’s drunk driving death?

Can Brooks Koepka defend his title and further his way up the Major wins ladder?

Will DJ shut up the Rory and Tiger lovers and prove he’s still the best golfer in the world?

Does he even need to?

Will Sergio Garcia make it four out of four tourneys with a top ten finish at Bethpage Black?

Can Xander Schauffele get his first of likely several major victories?

There are many questions to be answered this week on Long Island.

Tune in, turn up your favorite iced beverage, and let’s keep this winning train on the tracks!

Portsmouth v Sunderland Predictions & Betting Odds – 16th May 2019

Portsmouth v Sunderland Betting Tips – League One Play-offs, 16th May 19.45pm

Portsmouth and Sunderland clash in the second leg of their League One play-off semi-final at Fratton Park on Thursday evening. The Black Cats have a narrow advantage in the tie after a 1-0 victory at the Stadium of Light last Saturday. These two sides were only separated by three points during the regular season, and Thursday’s play-off encounter is expected to be another close matchup between the pair. Who will book their place in the League One play-off final at Wembley Stadium?

Portsmouth News and Form

Despite playing over 20 minutes against ten men last Saturday, Portsmouth fell to a disappointing 1-0 defeat. It was a nervy tie at the Stadium of Light, with a goal from substitute Chris Maguire proving to be the difference between the evenly matched teams. Alim Ozturk was sent off for the home side, but Pompey failed to capitalise.

Portsmouth have been very solid at Fratton Park this season, but they have failed to win any of their last two on home turf. After losing 3-2 to Peterborough United, which ended their automatic hopes, Kenny Jackett’s boys ended their campaign with a 1-1 home draw with Accrington Stanley. Overall, Portsmouth had a record of 12 wins, seven draws and four defeats at home in the league.

Before ending their season with a draw and a defeat before losing to Sunderland in the play-offs, Pompey had won seven League One games in a row. Their squad is glittered with experience and quality, and Jackett’s men are certainly capable of turning this one around. The hosts are priced at 13/10 to win on the night and 7/4 to qualify.

Portsmouth v Sunderland Head to Head

Sunderland’s win last week was their first victory over Pompey in over a decade

Portsmouth have lost just one of the last ten meetings

Pompey beat the Black Cats 3-1 at Fratton Park in the regular season back in December

  • Only Pompey had a better away record than Sunderland in this season’s League One
  • Portsmouth have lost just once at home since January
  • The Blacks Cats have lost their last two away games

Sunderland News and Form

Before last Saturday’s first leg win, Sunderland had ended their League One campaign with two defeats and two draws from their last four matches. Meanwhile, the Blacks Cats won just one of their last seven regular season fixtures. Away from the Stadium of Light, Jack Ross’ side have lost their last two, falling to defeats at Fleetwood Town and Southend United (both 2-1).

On the whole, the Blacks Cats have been superb away from home this term. Only Portsmouth picked up more away points (45) in this year’s League One, as Sunderland won ten, drew nine and lost just four of their 23 away league matches, picking up an impressive 39 points along the way.

As expected, it was a tight and tense first leg at the Stadium of Light, with not too much goalmouth action. However, the Mackems stepped up the pace in the second period, with Maguire’s 62nd-minute goal breaking the deadlock in Wearside. Even though Ozturk was sent off shortly after, Ross’ boys held on for a vital win.

After back-to-back relegations, Ross has certainly brought the fell-good factor back to the Stadium of Light, but Sunderland are not there yet. The Black Cats have plenty of work to do at Fratton Park, though the visitors are priced at just 2/5 to go through to Wembley.

Portsmouth v Sunderland Predictions

Portsmouth win: Unlike the first leg, I can see this one being a far more open affair. Portsmouth need a goal, so Jackett’s side should take the game to their guests right from the very start. Sunderland will do their best to contain the home team at Fratton Park, but I fancy Pompey to nick it. Put a few quid on Portsmouth to win and both teams to score at 4/1. I also like the look of over 2.5 goals at 5/4.
