Football Tips: The best bets this week from the Football...Only Bettor podcast team

Wolves celebrate scoring against Torino
Wolves feature heavily for our tipsters once again this week

On this week's Football...Only Bettor Kevin Hatchard is joined by Mark O'Haire, Jake Osgathorpe and Betfair's Jason Murphy to picks bets in the Premier League, European Leagues and Champions League...

"Two outsiders stand out in the Champions League outright betting: Atalanta 17.016/1 and Atletico Madrid 15.014/1"

Outright Bets - Premier League Top Four Finish

Jake: "This is a really fascinating market. After this week's results, Leicester and Manchester United have flip-flopped in the betting. United are in to 1.491/2 while Leicester are out to 2.35/4.

"But Wolves are 4.47/2 and they're level on points with United. Nuno's men have only three tough games remaining - one of which is this weekend against Arsenal (see below) - and if they keep playing the way they are they could be a decent bet."

Leicester v Crystal Palace - Saturday

Mark: "Something has gone wrong for Leicester. It's four wins for them in 15 matches. Palace have little to play for, so they could rest and rotate, but I think they'll be motivated. I'd back Palace +1 on the Asian handicap at around 1.84/5."

Wolves v Arsenal - Saturday

Jake: "This is a tough test for Arsenal. Wolves have been exceptional since the restart - three wins and three clean sheets. They look such a big price at nearly 2.47/5, an overreaction to Arsenal's couple of wins. I'd back Wolves to win or, if you want a bigger price, Wolves to win to nil.

Man Utd v Bournemouth - Saturday

Mark: "The signs are good for United who took apart Brighton in midweek. United have also had an extra day's rest ahead of this match against a struggling Bournemouth side. I'm backing United -1 on the Asian handicap and under 5.5 goals at 1.834/5 as a same game multiple."

Saturday's best bets

Jake: Wolves to win at 2.3811/8
Jason: Wolves to win at 2.3811/8

Mark: United -1 on the Asian handicap and under 5.5 goals at 1.834/5

Newcastle v West Ham - Sunday

Jake: "West Ham still look vulnerable when beating Cheslea in midweek. Newcastle have shown that they've got the attacking talent to cause West Ham problems. Newcastle are over-priced at 2.77/4 when they should be about 2.47/5."

Liverpool v Aston Villa - Sunday

Mark: Liverpool played on Thursday night and, if they've been on the beers since winning the title, this is a quick turnaround for them. They're playing one of the worst teams in the Premier League here and I'm going to back Liverpool -1.25 on the Asian handicap.

Tottenham v Everton - Monday

Jason: "I think you could do an early lay of Spurs at 2.1411/10. The one question mark would be Richarlison's fitness for Everton."

European Football

Mark: "In Parma v Fiorentina I'm backing Parma +0.25 @ 1.9110/11."

Jason: "In Espanyol v Leganes I'm backing the away side at 2.77/4."

Jake: "I'm going to lay Barcelona at 1.232/9 against Villareal."

Outright Bets - Champions League

Mark: "When the tournament returns in August it will essentially be a one game knockout competition. For that reason, two outsiders stand out: Atalanta 17.016/1 and Atletico Madrid 15.014/1 who are firing in Italy and Spain respectively."

Jason: "I'd echo Mark's bet on Atalanta but the other I like it Napoli 65.064/1, who drew with Barcelona in their first leg in the last-16, and have been impressive in Serie A since the restart."
