Football | Premier League gameweek 27 | Preview and Odds

After an FA Cup weekend, in which all of the fifth round winners overcame opposition ranked below them on the footballing ladder, we welcome back the Premier League title race in all its glory for an extended gameweek 27.

With both Man City and Chelsea preoccupied at Wembley, all eyes are fixed firmly on Anfield this Sunday. The Reds ‘welcome’ their East Lancs Road rivals Man Utd, and three points are a must if Jurgen Klopp’s men are to regain top spot and send out a message to Pep Guardiola.

The action begins with a Friday night double-header as Cardiff host Watford and West Ham take on strugglers Fulham under the floodlights of the London Stadium. We expect plenty of goals from both games as Neil Warnock’s side look for a third consecutive win and the Cottagers’ unwillingness to defend has made for fascinating viewing all season.

We’re also expecting goals at the Emirates where Arsenal, now with six consecutive home wins, host Southampton in the early afternoon kick-off on Sunday. Ralph Hasenhüttl’s Saints have been guilty of conceding devastating late goals in recent weeks. Add to this Arsenal’s propensity to find their flow late on in games, this encounter promises much.

Read on for more opinion from our football betting expert, including his best bets to look out for.

Golf | World Golf Championship heads to Mexico | Preview and Odds

The first World Golf Championship of the year takes place in Mexico as Club de Golf Chapultepec hosts the tournament for a third time.

The Mexico City course is 7,500 feet above sea level meaning balls will be flying for miles this week, which should mean the advantage the longer hitters usually have will be slightly reduced.

Apart from world number one, Justin Rose, all the big guns are out in force and here are the thoughts of our golf expert and his best bets ahead of the first day’s play tomorrow.

Football | Champions League round of 16 week 2 | Preview and Odds

All eyes will be on Liverpool tonight for their Champions League tie against German champions Bayern Munich in what is arguably the most eagerly-anticipated fixture within the last 16 stage.

Liverpool, who reached last year’s final, will hope to go one step further this year in winning the Champions League but come up against a Bayern side who are no stranger to winning this trophy themselves.

The Bavarian side ran out winners in 2013 against a Borussia Dortmund side managed by none other than current Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, and the former Dortmund manager will be keen to ensure his current side get the better of Bayern this time round.

Manchester City are the final English side to play in this year’s Champions League knock-out rounds and they’ll travel to Bundesliga strugglers Schalke.

Our football expert is here to run his eye over the best bets for this week’s fixtures.
