Saturday Sports Multiple: An Etihad draw the headline in a 17/1 weekend wager

Pep Guardiola, Manchester City
City could be in for a frustrating afternoon on Saturday

Andrew Hughes landed a massive 16/1 treble last weekend and this week he's backing Watford to cause a shock in another Saturday multiple

“The Hornets will pack the midfield, making it hard for City to play their way through and the absence of Fernandinho will make it tougher for the home side to impose themselves.”

Bet 1: Back Manchester City to draw with Watford at [9.0]

Manchester City got their noses in front in the two-horse Premier League race last weekend, but as the pressure mounts, we can expect more surprises during the run-in, and I think Watford look a good bet to frustrate them on Saturday.

While they have continued to grind out results, City are not playing with their usual fluency, and as Alex Keble points out, the absence of Kevin de Bruyne won't help them improve their record of two goals in 300 minutes of football, particularly against a Watford side that are likely to be stubborn opponents.

The Hornets will pack the midfield, making it hard for City to play their way through and the absence of Fernandinho will make it tougher for the home side to impose themselves. A Watford win isn't out of the question, but they aren't in great goal-scoring form themselves at the moment, so the draw looks the better option.

Bet 2: Back Wales to beat Scotland at [1.54]

After a promising 2018 Six Nations, Scottish rugby fans were hoping that the 2019 tournament would see another breakthrough, but it hasn't quite worked out that way.

They showed a worrying frailty in their victory over Italy, conceding three tries in the last ten minutes of the game, and have been well beaten twice, first at home to Ireland, then in Paris by a mediocre French team. Adding to their woes is an injury list that has forced coach Gregor Townsend to make eight changes ahead of this game.

By contrast, Warren Gatland has decided he doesn't need to recall Leigh Halfpenny for the trip to Murrayfield and has few other injury concerns. Victory over England made it twelve wins in a row for the men in red and their defensive line-speed, powerful pack and overall resilience should prove too strong for Scotland.

Bet 3: Back Catalans Dragons to beat Salford Red Devils at [1.3]

Three wins out of five is a reasonable start to Super League for Salford Red Devils, but they face a much tougher task on Saturday when they head to France.

The Stade Gilbert Brutus has been a fortress for Catalans Dragons over the years, and last week they once again proved formidable hosts as they broke Warrington's unbeaten start to the season with a grinding 23-22 win.

This week's visitors will be hoping that Jackson Hastings will be fit after he came off in the game against St Helens, but even if he is able to start, I can't see the Red Devils making much of an impression on French soil.
