Andrew Hughes has another treble lined up on Saturday and is backing a draw in the Bundesliga basement to kick off his multiple

“No team in the Bundesliga have drawn more games than Wolfsburg and only two sides have scored fewer goals.”

Bet 1: Back Wolfsburg to draw with FC Koln at [4.33]

A win on Saturday would ensure that Wolfsburg avoid automatic relegation, and on the face of it, taking on the Bundesliga's bottom team offers a great chance to pick up all three points. But this fixture may not be as easy as it seems.

For a start, Koln have improved under Stefan Ruthenbeck, averaging a point per game; form that might have kept them up had they found it earlier. By contrast the threat of relegation has caused Wolfsburg to buckle and nothing that Bruno Labbadia has tried has helped to make them any more resilient.

No team in the Bundesliga have drawn more games than Wolfsburg and only two sides have scored fewer goals. And, as Kevin Hatchard points out in his comprehensive Bundesliga preview, they haven't won at the Volkswagon Arena since December. In their current form they can't be backed with confidence and a draw looks a good bet here.

Bet 2: Back King XI Punjab to beat Kolkata [1.91]

The IPL play-offs will soon be upon us and as the race for the title hots up you can catch up with all the latest previews on the Betting.Betfair IPL pages.

Kings XI are still in the play-off places but are losing form at precisely the wrong time, winning just one of their last four. Kolkata have a slightly better recent record, but their tendency to give away big totals is costing them dearly. They conceded 219 against Delhi a few games back and 210 against Mumbai on Wednesday.

There isn't much to choose between these teams but Kings XI Punjab have the more economical bowling attack, and have already played a couple of games at the Holkar Stadium, Indore, which may give them the edge on Saturday.

Bet 3: Back Manly Sea Eagles to beat Brisbane Broncos at [2.62]

After a tidy start, Manly's NRL season has slid out of control but while a finals tilt appears of the question, they look a good bet to end their bad run on Saturday.

Five defeats in a row is a pretty awful record for a team of Manly's calibre, but they showed plenty of fight against the Roosters, despite eventually going down by two points and with Marty Taupau and Jake Trbojevic coming into form, I think they offer a touch of value to edge out an inconsistent Broncos side this weekend.
