Cross-Sport Multiple: Back Rafa to sign off with a win

19May 2013


After landing Saturday's cross-sport multiple at odds of 8.26, Andrew Hughes has dug out three more bets for a profitable Sunday.


Bet 1: Back Chelsea to beat Everton at 1.66


Both managers at this game deserve applause, but only one of them is likely to get it. Having already won a European trophy, Rafa Benitez can deliver fans and owner a third place Premier League finish by beating Everton.


Anything less than a victory means they could be pipped for third by Arsenal, but the Blues have hit form at the business end of the season, and are up against a team with nothing to play for.


We can expect a typically hard-working effort from the visitors, but they haven't won at Stamford Bridge since 1994, and haven't won on the road in seven. Chelsea, on the other hand, are on a run of eight games undefeated at home, and can grind out one more victory for a manager who leaves with his reputation enhanced.


Bet 2: Back Sunrisers Hyderabad to beat Kolkata Knight Riders at 1.72


Bangalore's victory yesterday put them back into fourth place, which means Hyderabad need to beat Kolkata on Sunday to make the play-offs.


Kolkata beat the Sunrisers in the reverse fixture, but the fortunes of the two teams have headed in opposite directions since then. The defending champions can finish no higher than seventh, whilst the Sunrisers have surprised everyone.


That success is all the more remarkable because they rely almost entirely on their bowlers. They've scored fewer runs than any of the other teams at IPL6, but the bowling of Dale Steyn, Karan Sharma, Amit Mishra and Hanuma Vihari has kept them in contention. Given the Sunriser's good home record and the fact that Kolkata have nothing to play for, it makes sense to go with the home side.


Bet 3: Back Wakefield Wildcats to beat Hull Kingston Rovers at 2.65


On paper, this should be an even contest. Both teams are stuck in the lower mid table region of Super League with Rovers in ninth just one point ahead of Wakefield. Both teams also crashed out of the Challenge Cup at the fifth round stage last weekend.


On form, however, Wakefield have the advantage. Before their Challenge Cup disappointment, they'd won two Super League fixtures in a row, whereas Rovers have lost five of their last six in all competitions.


Wakefield also hold an 8-5 head-to-head advantage over their opponents, and have won their last three encounters, including a 36-20 victory in February. Wakefield go to New Craven Park with an unchanged squad, and are the better attacking side. Back them to win and to increase the pressure on Rovers coach Craig Sandercock.
