Cross-Sport Multiple: Back Gunners to keep up pressure

Arsene has had plenty to smile about recently

Andrew Hughes thinks Arsenal will be too strong for Burnley on Saturday and will help to land a cross-sport multiple in the process

"With Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud contributing alongside Alexis Sanchez, the Gunners have been finding the net regularly in recent weeks..."

Bet 1: Back Arsenal to beat Burnley at 1.574/7

Burnley have earned many admirers with their spirited attempt to stay in the Premier League and have performed particularly well against the better sides in the division. But they are running out of games, and I can't see them adding to their points tally this weekend.

Arsenal have once again helped Arsene Wenger to silence his critics with a run of seven Premier League victories, their best spell of form since 2004. With Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud contributing alongside Alexis Sanchez, the Gunners have been finding the net regularly in recent weeks, something that can be said of the Sean Dyche's side. Burnley have only scored once in their last five and will find themselves outgunned on Saturday


Bet 2: Back Gloucester to beat Harlequins at 3.02/1

Gloucester haven't won at the Stoop for 14 years, but they can bring that dismal run to an end on Saturday by beating a struggling Harlequins side.

Neither side is enjoying a vintage season in the Aviva Premier League. Gloucester are currently ninth, having won just one of their last five league games, whilst Harlequins are only one place and two points better off and are on an even more dismal run of form, winning only one of their last seven.

There isn't much to choose between the two sides, but Gloucester's victory over Connacht in the European Challenge Cup quarter-finals last weekend was a big morale booster and at bigger odds, they are the value bet.


Bet 3: Back Chennai Super Kings to beat Sunrisers Hyderabad at 1.42/5

Sunrisers Hyderabad have recruited heavily in their attempt to improve on last year's disappointing IPL campaign but their opening assignment is a tough one.

Chennai have been the most consistent side in IPL history and although they weren't at their best on Thursday against Delhi, they still found a way to win.

Hyderabad do have the edge in pace bowling and they have a strong opening combination in David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan, but their middle order is weak and they lack Chennai's strength in depth. Back the home side for another win.
