Big Saturday Multiple: Back Cally to do the business against Dundee

Jonno Turner scours the globe to bring you three selections worthy of throwing into a treble - at odds of 9.5...

 

We're off to Scotland for our first pick of this three team multiple - and third placed Inverness Caledonian Thistle desperately need to take maximum points as they welcome an out of form Dundee United side to the Caledonian Stadium this afternoon.

 

Terry Butcher's side currently sit in the final Europa League qualification place, but are just one point ahead of fourth placed St Johnstone, who have hit some real positive form with the season end in sight.

 

That is piling the pressure on the Jags - but a 4-3 victory at home to second placed Motherwell last weekend will have boosted confidence in the hosts camp, and they will see this clash as a real opportunity to put some space between themselves and the rest of the top three challengers.

 

Inverness are unbeaten in five on their own patch, and will be keen not to let that momentum slip - with 20 goals notched in their last 10 games at home showing that they have what it takes to punish their opponents.

 

Visitors Dundee United travel to the Highlands in miserable form - and three defeats on the bounce sees them sitting bottom of the Championship Group.

 

Jackie McNamara's side have failed to win in their last four on the road, and just one goal scored in that time shows where their issues have been of late.

 

And that poor run leaves the Terrors sitting a whopping 10 points behind their opponents this afternoon, with any fleeting thoughts of leaving their mark on the top three, or indeed matching last year's fourth placed finish, quashed.

 

Bet 1: Inverness CT (HOME) @ 2

 

Switching our attentions to the south of France now - as Marseille host Toulouse in Ligue 1, desperate to hold on to second place with just a few games left to play.

 

The home side are in cracking form of late, and have won five of their last six games going into this one, without a loss in the league since the end of February.

 

Seven clean sheets from their last eight shows that the Stade Velodrome side have hardly put a foot wrong defensively in recent months, and they will be keen to extend that run in order to cement their place in next year's Champions League.

 

Toulouse travel to the south coast having failed to win in 11 of their last 14 outings, and just one clean sheet from their last half a dozen suggests that they could be susceptible to the attacking threat of their hosts here.

 

That leaves the visitors sitting 10th in the table, and just one win from their last away form Stade Municipal indicates that they could struggle against a l'OM side full of momentum and vigour this afternoon.

 

Bet 2: Marseille (HOME) @ 1.65

 

Travelling to Denmark for our final pick, and SoderjyskE travel to AGF looking to extend some excellent recent form which has seen them win four of their last five.

 

Lars Sondegaard's side have moved into eighth place in the league as a result of that, and will be keen to maintain that momentum as they travel to Aarhus this afternoon.

 

The visitors have scored a whopping 13 goals in that time, and will fancy their chances against an AGF side which is in the midst of a miserable run of results.

 

Peter Sorensen's side have won just one game since the beginning of March, and that has seen them slip to ninth place in the Superliga, two points behind their opponents today.

 

Worryingly for the hosts, no goals scored in their last three outings suggests that things are looking a little barren in the final third, and that is a slump that they will be desperate to arrest here.

 

SonderjyskE are unbeaten in five of their last seven meetings with their hosts, and I reckon that they can extend that run further here - at cracking odds.

 

Bet 3: SonderjyskE (AWAY) @ 2.87
