Cross-Sport Multiple: Super Saddlers to sink Crawley

Walsall's ginger Mourinho contemplates the play-offs

"Walsall’s season has come in three parts. A flying start, followed by a drastic slump that extended to sixteen games without a win, and finally a post-Christmas resurgence that has taken them to within touching distance of the play-offs." 

Andrew Hughes thinks in-form Walsall are a safe bet to add another three points to their collection and help land a Saturday cross-sport multiple in the process.

Betfair now gives you the facility to mix and match your multiples across a huge range of sports and markets with the easy-to-use betslip and so each weekend I've been putting together a cross-sport treble with the aim of showing the way to maximise your profits.

Bet 1: Back Walsall to beat Crawley at 2.35/4

Walsall's season has come in three parts. A flying start, followed by a drastic slump that extended to sixteen games without a win, and finally a post-Christmas resurgence that has taken them from the bottom four to within touching distance of the play-offs. 

Former Manchester United player Febian Brandy has been a significant part of their revival. His pace and trickery has proved difficult for League One defences to deal with, and he's provided the ammunition for top scorer Will Grigg. 

Crawley are a decent mid-table side, but their own play-off hopes have faded after a run of ten games that has featured just a couple of wins and too many draws. Both sides play good football and it could be an entertaining game, but Walsall are on fire at the moment and are value for another three points. 

Bet 2: Back Wales to beat England at 2.111/10

England stamped their authority on this year's Six Nations, with three dominant performances against Scotland, Ireland and France, and are just one win away from their second Grand Slam of the Six Nations era. 

But there were worrying signs in their last game against Italy that they may be running out of steam. The Italians had the better of the second half at Twickenham and if they hadn't given away so many penalties, could have won. 

England have scored just one try in their last three games and against a resurgent Welsh team, who will relish the opportunity to deny their great rivals the Grand Slam, England can't afford to just on the boot of Owen Farrell to exploit. Wales remain a dangerously talented team and they have the momentum. Back a home win. 

Bet 3: Back Huddersfield Giants to beat Hull FC at 1.364/11

Huddersfield have made a superb start to Super League. They are top of the table with five wins from six matches, their latest victory being a 32-8 demolition of reigning champions Leeds at Headingley last week. Huddersfield's powerful forwards have given half-backs Danny Brough and Luke Robinson time and space to weave their magic and so far this season, only Bradford have managed to disrupt their game plan.  

Hull FC finished above the Giants in last year's Super League, beating them in the Elimination Play-Offs, and they will have gained some confidence from the 52-0 thrashing they administered to a woeful Castleford side last time out. But they've made a slow start to the season, and on what we've seen so far, they will struggle to get on the front foot against Huddersfield's huge pack. Go for the home win.
