Back our 27/1 cross-sport acca here!

Saturday, 17:00 – Ireland vs England (Six Nations)

Best bet – Ireland -15.0 handicap

Rugby expert Chris Rivers has taken charge of our Six Nations tips this weekend and he fancies Ireland to land the Grand Slam on St Patrick’s weekend. To make things even more special, they can achieve this feat in Dublin!

The Irish have proven unflappable so far and can wrap up the title in style at England’s expense. Their smallest winning margin in these championships so far is 13 points and the early injury concerns have proven unfounded after Caelan Doris and Dan Sheehan were passed fit.

England put in a diabolical performance against France and have failed to cover the handicap on six of their last nine visits. The Red Rose failed to match France’s physicality and aggression and are unlikely to fare any better against a motivated Ireland.

Saturday, 17:45 – Man City vs Burnley

Best bet – Both teams to score

The FA Cup reaches the quarter-final stage this weekend and first up in the billing pits Championship leaders Burnley against Manchester City, with Vincent Kompany expected to receive a warm welcome at the Etihad.

Gareth Freeman fancies the Clarets to make an impact as well, with them set to name a full-strength starting XI against what is likely to be a weakened Cityzens outfit.

Burnley have scored in ten of their last 11 games and have scored 74 league goals so far this season. They scored four past Bournemouth in a previous FA Cup tie and have nothing to lose at the Etihad, although keeping City out at the other end is a mountainous task.

Saturday, 21:00 – Leon Edwards vs Kamaru Usman (UFC 286)

Best bet – Kamaru Usman to win by decision or technical decision

MMA lover Bobbie Jackson is back in the building for UFC 286 at the O2 Arena in London and it is not shaping up to be a good weekend for the patriots among us.

Birmingham’s own Leon Edwards is making the maiden defence of his welterweight title against former champion Kamaru Usman, with Edwards winning the title with a spectacular knockout victory back in August.

However, he was on track to lose that meeting in Salt Lake City comfortably before his highlight reel head kick with under a minute remaining.

Usman is likely to employ a gameplan that nullifies Edwards’ striking capabilities and with an accomplished wrestling background he can dominate the champion on the ground.

Expect the Nigerian Nightmare to shoot for an early takedown and grind out a win on the canvas.

Sunday, 17:00 – Saudi Arabian Grand Prix

Best bet – Max Verstappen to win

Max Verstappen and Red Bull dominated proceedings in the 2023 curtain-raiser in Bahrain and there is very little to suggest things will be different in Saudi Arabia.

Verstappen was almost 12 seconds clear of teammate Sergio Perez in Bahrain and some 38 seconds ahead of third-placed Fernando Alonso. Terrifyingly, judging by the team radio messages, the Red Bulls were not even showing their full potential there, either.

We picked up where we left off in FP1 in Jeddah, with Verstappen at the top of the timing charts, half a second ahead of Perez and seven-tenths clear of Alonso.

The reigning world champion won in Jeddah last season and I expect a more dominant showing from them on Sunday.

Sunday, 20:00 – Barcelona vs Real Madrid

Best bet – Barcelona to win

The weekend ends in Catalunya for the fourth El Clasico of the season as La Liga leaders Barcelona host arch-rivals Real Madrid at the Camp Nou.

Barca’s early exit from the Europa League has left them with an entire week to prepare for El Clasico, while Real Madrid had a midweek Champions League tie to concentrate on and will be prioritising their continental aspirations after finding themselves nine points adrift in the La Liga title race.

Xavi’s side have won their last three games and have Ronald Araujo returning to the back four on Sunday. Los Blancos, meanwhile have looked laboured recently and have just two wins from their last five games, including a 1-0 loss to Barcelona in the Copa del Rey. They have lost three of the last four El Clasicos and could be on the end of another defeat on Sunday.
