Andrew Hughes thinks Manchester United and Arsenal will play out a draw on Sunday and help to land a cross-sport multiple in the process

"United have won seven of their last eight League games at Old Trafford, but have only scored two in their last four, while Arsenal have won their last five away from home but have a poor record against teams in the top four."

Bet 1: Back Manchester United to draw with Arsenal at 3.412/5

Arsenal pulled off a battling victory at Old Trafford in the FA Cup earlier in the year, and I think they will prove similarly stubborn opponents on Sunday.

With the Premier League title gone and Liverpool out of sight in fifth, there is still a contest to avoid finishing fourth and having to face a Champions League play-off in August, an unwanted extra fixture that both teams will be keen to avoid.

United have won seven of their last eight League games at Old Trafford, but have only scored two in their last four, while Arsenal have won their last five away from home but have a poor record against teams in the top four. An entertaining if occasionally bad-tempered draw is on the cards.


Bet 2: Back Mumbai to beat Sunrisers at 1.84/5

It's crunch time in the IPL as the final round of matches takes place this weekend, and the final game of the regular season on Sunday looks like a straight fight for the last remaining play-off place between two in-form teams.

Sunrisers Hyderabad lost to Bangalore on Thursday, and that defeat opened the door for Mumbai to sneak into the top four, as they did so spectacularly twelve months ago. The Indians have won six of their last seven, including a comfortable 20 run win over the Sunrisers three weeks ago, and I think the death-bowling skill of Lasith Malinga gives them the edge. Back Mumbai for the win.


Bet 3: Back Leigh to beat Wakefield at 2.0521/20

After a run of eleven straight defeats stretching back to February, a run that leaves them on the brink of equalling their longest ever Super League losing streak, the Challenge Cup might offer a welcome distraction for Wakefield.

But they could have chosen better sixth round opponents. Leigh Centurions are top of the Championship and are on an incredible 24-match winning streak in all competitions. They dispatched Salford in the last round and can see off the struggling Wildcats on Sunday to reach the last eight.
