Premier League Saturdays are made for lounging on the couch and kicking everyone out of the sitting room so you can watch the games in peace.
Truf Moor is the venue for our first outing of the weekend tomorrow as Manchester City make the short hop to Burnley for the early kick-off at 12.30pm, while in Ireland we’re treated to the clash of champions Leicester and Middlesbrough at 3pm.
For punters fancying making the action on their screens more interesting, we’ve come up with a cheeky double that could deliver for you at over 3/1.
Let’s talk you through it…
Man City take to the field on Saturday knowing their opponents Burnley are damaged goods after being taking apart 4-0 by West Brom on Monday Night Football.
Sean Dyche will have undertaken one heck of a rebuilding job at training this week in the wake of what can only be described as a confidence-shattering defeat, and things don’t get easier for them with City next up.
Pep Guardiola’s men got what they wanted from Wednesday night’s draw with Borussia Monchengladbach – progression to the knock out phases and no new injuries worries. Fresh from his double salvo last week, Yaya Toure should come back into the side and might be an nifty wager for an anytime goal at .
The punt we are backing though is the alternative handicap of Man City (-1.0) at , we believe Burnley’s fragile confidence has them ripe for the picking and City have the quality in their ranks to pick them off at will.
City have managed to win by two or more goals on eight occasion this season, and that has us assured our double will be standing going into the 3pm kick-off.
The Champions League has been papering over a lot of cracks for Claudio Ranieri’s Foxes this season, which means suddenly this tie with Middlesbrough has become an absolute must-win.
Only a point separates these clubs in the table and despite qualifying with ease for the next Champions League, Leicester are getting dragged into a battle at the wrong end of the table. The Foxes have only won once in their last seven and are only two points clear of the relegation zone – are we sure they’re the champions of England?
Thankfully for Ranieri, they run into one of the few sides with a worse recent league record than them on Saturday, as Middlesbrough have only tasted victory a single time in their last 10 outings.
Middlesbrough’s only away success was all the way back in August and that has us lending towards Leicester to be victorious at .
After all no one wants the tag of being the worst champions in Premier League history and we think that may spur on the Foxes to burrow in for three points on the telly box.
