Football Tips: The best bets this week from the Football...Only Bettor podcast team

On this week's Football...Only Bettor Kevin Hatchard is joined by Mark O'Haire, Jake Osgathorpe and Seb Stafford-Bloor. Listen to the show and read the summary of their bets...

Champions League

Mark: "I tipped up Atalanta and Atletico on the podcast pre-draw and happy with both still. Both clubs would much rather be in their half of the draw, without the favourites and previous winners."
Jake: "Man City came into favouritism post draw but the Infogol model makes Bayern favourites and a good value bet at 4.90. I'd look at laying Juventus too."
Seb: "I fancy Real Madrid to turn around the City tie and cause a shock at the Etihad. I've been fascinated by their transformation into George Graham's Arsenal since the restart. "

Europa League

Jake: "Man United are incredibly short in the outright market at 3.15 given they will likely face a tricky opponent in the next round. Bayer Leverkusen are a very interesting price at 7.80."

Premier League

West Ham v Watford - Friday
Jake: "West Ham have come to life in an attacking sense, creating more than two xG per game in the last four. You sense both managers would be happy with a draw but the value in is over 2.5 at 2.30. West Ham are attacking well and Watford are not great defensively on the road."
Norwich v Burnley - Saturday
Mark: "Burnley got a great point at Anfield and then a late equaliser against Wolves which means it's one defeat in 14 for the Clarets, and that was against Man City. They look big at 2.30 to beat a Norwich team who have lost eight on the spin and have whimpered to relegation. You can boost the price to 2/1 by adding under 3.5 Goals."
Wolves v Crystal Palace - Monday
Mark: "Everyone has cottoned on to Wolves being a second half side but I've found a nice even money play on the Same Game Multi - under 1.5 goals in the first half and Wolves to score in the second. Only 14 of the last 71 collective games of these two has seen more than a goal in the first half."
Sheffield United v Everton - Monday
Jake: "Sheffield United have made a mockery of their odds in their last three home games, dispatching Spurs, Chelsea and Wolves and 2.30 on the Exchange looks like a decent bet against an Everton side in poor form."

FA Cup Semi-Finals

Arsenal v Man City - Saturday
Mark: "City have the upper hand over Arsenal, winning the last seven matches on the bounce and odds of 1.34 are fair enough.
"But Arsenal have shown more resilience under Arteta - the rearguard action against Liverpool this week being a good example - and City are unlikely to run riot. So a City win and under 3.5 goals double at 2.20 is the bet."

European Leagues

Serie A
Jake: "I think Atalanta and over 2.5 goals against Verona is a sensible play on Saturday."
Mark: "I'm backing both teams to score and over 2.5 goals in Juventus v Lazio on Monday."
La Liga
Mark: "Sevilla take on Valencia on Sunday. If you can get anything bigger than 1.60 on the hosts then take it. Or look at backing Sevilla -1.5 goals on the Asian Handicap."
