Saturday Sports Multiple: Back the Hammers in a 7/1 weekend wager

Everton could struggle in London on Saturday

Andrew Hughes thinks West Ham will beat Everton on Saturday and help to land another weekend multiple in the process.

“There remain question marks about Silva’s ability to get the best out of his expensive squad, and they face a tough challenge against a well-organised Hammers side that scored four in a remarkable comeback win against Huddersfield.”

Bet 1: Back West Ham to beat Everton at 2.55

Everton's victory over Chelsea in their last Premier League outing was a timely one for embattled boss Marco Silva, but punters should be wary of assuming that this signals an upturn in form for the inconsistent Toffees.

That 2-0 victory came courtesy of some Chelsea profligacy in front of goal, heroics from England keeper Jordan Pickford, and a powerful performance from central defender Yerry Mina, who is likely to be missing here having picked up an injury while on international duty for Colombia in the week.

There remain question marks about Silva's ability to get the best out of his expensive squad, and they face a tough challenge against a well-organised Hammers side that scored four in a remarkable comeback win against Huddersfield. As Mark O'Haire points out, West Ham have an excellent home record and they look the value bet here.

Bet 2: Back Kolkata to beat Delhi at 1.758/11

The IPL is in full swing and you can get all of the latest tips and previews from Betting.Betfair's cricket betting experts here.

Delhi have been revamped for the 2019 competition, but they are already showing signs of a familiar inconsistency. They were solid against Mumbai in their opener, but were then taken apart by Chennai after young captain Shreyas Iyer kept his opening bowlers on too long, allowing Shane Watson to find his range.

By contrast, Kolkata have impressed in back to back wins over Sunrisers Hyderabad and King's XI Punjab. They are packed with big hitters, including the dangerous Andre Russell, who won them the game against Hyderabad, and their wily spin trio of Sunil Narine, Piyush Chawla and Kuldeep Yadav is the best in the tournament. Back them to continue their good start with a third win on Saturday.

Bet 3: Back Cronulla to beat North Queensland at 1.738/11

North Queensland Cowboys will be hoping to bounce back from last weekend's 29-10 defeat against the Broncos on Saturday, but I'll be backing the visitors this time.

Cronulla lost their NRL opener, but they were convincing 20-6 winners against the Titans in Round Two and could have won by more had they not switched off for a time in the second half.

They will also be up against a Cowboys side with a reshuffled back line and a weakened pack in the absence of Jason Taumalolo. Assuming the Sharks put on their usual resolute defensive show, that should be enough to stop a limited North Queensland side and they look a solid bet to win their second game of the season.
