"Fulham can keep the score down so Man City to win and under 3.5 goals at 1.910/11 is the bet for me."

On this week's Football...Only Bettor, host Kevin Hatchard welcomes regulars Mark O'Haire and Mark Stinchcombe as well as special guest Martin Laurence from stats specialists, WhoScored.com.

Listen to the podcast here, read the summary of their bets below and check out the Podcast OddsBoost as the team try to land a combined bet at 4/1, boosted from 7/2.

Champions League - PSG, Porto and Liverpool are ones to watch

Mark Stinchcombe: I tipped PSG at around 13.012/1 on the podcast earlier this season and now they're into 6.611/2 so I'm happy with my position. Kylian Mbappe is producing winning performances, he's the next Ronaldo (the Brazilian one) and could win multiple Ballon D'Ors.

MO: Porto were excellent in knocking out Juventus. Even though we won't see the draw until 19 March, they're a decent outside bet at 42.041/1 to go far in the Champions League. They have very little else to play for and they are organised and efficient.

Martin Laurence: Nobody has been close to the level of Bayern Munich 4.77/2 or Man City 3.613/5, although Liverpool 9.08/1 have been impressive in the Champions League so I wouldn't write them off. Of the two market leaders I'd lean towards City.

Premier League Relegation - Seagulls on the slide

KH: Should we be piling in on Brighton to go down?

MS: You can get 6.86/1 on them to go down and they're only outside the relegation zone on goal difference. They have a game in hand but if they can't win that makes no difference. I think at those odds they are worth a bet to go down.

Premier League - This weekend's bets

Arsenal v Tottenham

MO: I like what Jose Mourinho has been doing recently by releasing the shackles and brining Gareth Bale and Dele Alli in from the cold. I fancy them here but, instead of backing them, will go for both teams to score at 1.758/11.

ML: The pace of progress at Arsenal is glacial but Tottenham don't beat strong teams. Away wins are not common in this fixture- only one in the last 20 in the league. Cards might be an angle if you're not looking at the result. I might have a punt on Alexandre Lacazette to be carded if he plays, he gets lots of bookings for a striker and should be a decent price.

MS: It's a 50/50 match. Only five of the last 15 have gone over 2.5 goals so unders at 5/6 is my bet.

Crystal Palace v West Brom

MS: Both teams to score 'no' is 1.845/6 and I think that's generous for a match between two low-scoring teams. That's a nice bit of value.

Newcastle v Aston Villa

ML: This is a big opportunity for Villa to get a win without Jack Grealish. Newcastle are missing their best three attacking players. I'm look at Villa to win or Villa and under 2.5 goals at 4.216/5 which looks good to me.

Fulham v Man City

MO: Fulham have been resurgent recently and given themselves a chance of staying up but they struggle against the big teams. That said, they can keep the score down here. Man City to win and under 3.5 goals at 1.910/11 is the bet for me.

Southampton v Brighton

MS: Saints have the second worst defence in the Premier League while Brighton are seventh for expected goals for. I'm going with over 2.0 at 1.758/11 in the Goal Lines. The only way we lose is if there's zero or one goals.

Leeds v Chelsea

MO: Chelsea are playing with a plan and a purpose. Leeds' downfall is that they play in the same style of organised chaos whoever they're facing. They have been really strong, though, against everyone other than the elite teams. Chelsea are a decent bet to win at 1.84/5.

European Leagues - This weekend's bets

Bundesliga

MO: Wolfsburg -1.5 at evens against Schalke is too much to turn down. Schalke's season has been a car crash.

KH: Leipzig 1.84/5 are too short at home to Frankfurt. The visitors have had a clear week while Leipzig lost to Liverpool in the Champions League. I'm laying Leipzig at 1.84/5.

KH: Mainz are 2.727/4 at home to Freiburg who have little to play for and could be there for the taking. Alternatively you could back Mainz Draw No Bet.

Swiss Super League

MO: Basel have had a rocky season and only kept one clean sheet since Christmas. Lucerne have average 1.8 goals per game but they leave the door open at the back too often. Over 2.5 goals at 1.84/5 holds a lot of value.

La Liga

Ms: Getafe are organised but I expect Atletico to win when they go there this weekend. If Atletico get into a good position they may bring players off with an eye to their Champions League tie against Chelsea next week. We can get 4/1 on Atletico to win 1-0 and 13/2 on them winning 2-0 so splitting your stakes is a good route in.
