Andrew Hughes landed a 7/1 treble last time and he's backing a stalemate at Burnley to kick off another weekend multiple this Saturday.

“Burnley’s defensive tenacity has enabled them to hang on to seventh spot despite a poor goal-scoring record…”

Bet 1: Back Burnley to draw with Leicester at [3.2]

Few pundits expected Sean Dyche's team to be leading the chasing Premier League pack with a month to go this season, but Burnley's defensive tenacity has enabled them to hang on to seventh spot despite a poor goal-scoring record.

Only three teams in the division have a better defensive record, and as revealed by the fascinating Opta Stats Preview, Burnley are one of only four sides not to have lost a Premier League game in which they've been ahead this season. They top the charts for blocks and headed clearances, and their commitment and organisation in and around their own penalty area has enabled them to punch above their weight.

Leicester are also having a good campaign, after the rollercoaster ride of 2016-17 and have returned to the effective direct counter-attacking style that brought them the title two years ago. They are particularly good on the road, but Burnley have a strong home record and a hard-fought draw is on the cards this weekend.

Bet 2: Back Mumbai to beat Delhi at [1.67]

The IPL is well underway, but if you're coming to the tournament late, make sure you catch up with Ed Hawkins' must-read guide to this year's contenders.

Defending champions Mumbai got off to a disappointing start with a home defeat against Chennai, but they should find things easier in their second game. Perennial whipping boys Delhi have assembled a balanced squad, but are finding the losing habit hard to shake and have been well-beaten by both Punjab and Rajasthan.

Mumbai lack a little power at the top of their order, but their batting line-up is deep and they have arguably the best seam bowling attack in the competition. The three-time IPL winners also have the experience to bounce back from defeat and I think they will prove too strong for Delhi on Saturday.

Bet 3: Back Canberra Raiders to beat Parramatta Eels at [1.53]

Neither of these sides has made a good start to the NRL season and going into Round Six, they've managed just one win between them.

Five straight defeats have put Parramatta under intense pressure, and with their big name players struggling for form, they don't look like turning things round any time soon. The Raiders haven't been much better, but they did get a win last time out; a nervy 26-10 victory over the Bulldogs, and that should give them a confidence boost. They also haven't lost at home to the Eels since 2006. Back them to edge this one.
