The Long Haul Accumulator
Monday – Venezia vs Torino (Serie A, 7:45pm)
Things are turning around for Torino, who have claimed seven points from their last three games after holding Lazio to a draw last week. That’s set them up perfectly for this trip to Venezia, who have lost four of their last five Serie A games. Back Torino to secure the points and add to the hosts’ awful start.
Betting tip: Torino to win
Tuesday – PSG vs Man City (Champions League, 8pm)
Tuesday’s star-studded tie in Paris pits Lionel Messi up against his former boss in Pep Guardiola. This is a major test of PSG’s summer recruitment, with the French side losing home and away to City in last season’s semi-finals.
City pulled off a 1-0 victory at Chelsea at the weekend and they’re capable of another perfect performance in Paris. Back the Citizens to come through this and take advantage of a PSG side who look defensively shaky.
Betting tip: Man City to win
Wednesday – Peterborough vs Bournemouth (Championship, 7:45pm)
This clash is hidden away on Sky Sports’ red button, but it’s worth seeking out over the Champions League action. Peterborough have conceded 12 goals across their last four, losing five of their last six outings.
The Cherries have won their last four in the Championship to move top. Posh were hammered 3-0 at the hands of high-flying Coventry on Friday night, so back Bournemouth to cruise to the points.
Betting tip: Bournemouth to win
Thursday – Celtic vs Bayer Leverkusen (Europa League, 8pm)
Celtic have lost four of their last six matches heading into this clash, suffering defeats in their last two Europa League games. They should struggle to match a Bayer Leverkusen side who have won five of their last six matches. Despite the gulf between the two teams, the Germans are well priced for a victory.
Betting tip: Bayer to win
Friday – Cologne vs Greuther Furth (Bundesliga, 7:30pm)
Cologne have seen both teams score in all seven of their matches this term, while they haven’t failed to score at home in the league since February. The visitors have failed to keep a clean sheet all season and both teams have scored in five of their seven matches so far. Back the weekend’s action to kick-off with plenty of goals.
Betting tip: Both teams to score
