Andrew Hughes is back with another weekend multiple and he's banking on a draw in Saturday's London derby.

“After missing the last four games, Mesut Ozil may return for this game, which should give the home side more control in the centre of the pitch, where they have been vulnerable recently, most notably in last week’s defeat against West Ham.”

Bet 1: Back Arsenal to draw with Chelsea at [3.6]

Arsenal and Chelsea both arrive at this weekend's London derby in need of a morale-boosting win. The visitors' goal-scoring problems may be alleviated by the arrival of Gonzalo Higuain, but Arsenal's issues are more complex, and the news that the club is only considering loan signings will have worried Gunners fans.

After missing the last four games, Mesut Ozil may return for this game, which should give the home side more control in the centre of the pitch, where they have been vulnerable recently, most notably in last week's defeat against West Ham.

Both teams are offensively minded and both have leaked goals in recent weeks, so this should be an entertaining clash, but with neither wanting to give up points to a Champions League qualification rival, the draw looks a good bet.

Bet 2: Back Pakistan to beat South Africa at [2.8]

South Africa dominated the Test series against Pakistan but the tourists are likely to be more competitive at the shorter formats, and offer some value for Saturday's opening One Day International.

Admittedly, their form in fifty-over cricket has not been that strong, and their batting is likely to be hit and miss, but their strong bowling attack means that they have the capacity to spring a surprise.

Pakistan can call on a battery of impressive seamers, including Hasan Ali, Mohammed Amir and Shaheen Shah Afridi, backed up by the useful spin of Shadab Khan, and against a South African team that is resting two key players in Quinton de Kock and Dale Steyn, the tourists are worth a bet.

Bet 3: Back Ulster to beat Leicester at [1.5]

An away game at Welford Road is traditionally one of the toughest assignments in rugby, but Ulster look a good bet to get the win they need in Leicester on Saturday.

The Tigers have endured a poor season, lying seventh in the Premiership and bottom of their Champions Cup pool, and they've also lost four of their last six home games in European competition, including a 34-11 thrashing by Racing 92 in December.

Ulster have a good record against Leicester, winning five of their last six and with tournament top try-scorer Jacob Stockdale in their ranks, should have enough firepower to beat the Tigers and book a quarter-final place.
