Andrew Hughes thinks Spain will prevail in Saturday's UEFA Nations League game at Wembley, and help to land another weekend multiple in the process.

“Gareth Southgate’s tactics proved effective against limited opponents, but England’s defensive vulnerability on the flanks and lack of creativity, not to mention the absence of Plan B cost them against Croatia.”

Bet 1: Back Spain to beat England at [2.6]

The UEFA Nations League may be a novelty, but competitive football action is always preferable to friendlies. There should be plenty of opportunities to profit during this international break and Betting.Betfair will keep you up to date.

England's run to the semi-final of the World Cup and Spain's exit in the second round at the hands of Russia mean that the home side are a shorter price than they should be for Saturday's Nations League game, and at these odds they offer no value at all.

Gareth Southgate's tactics proved effective against limited opponents, but England's defensive vulnerability on the flanks and lack of creativity, not to mention the absence of Plan B cost them against Croatia. Luis Enrique's Spanish side are fresh, motivated and significantly better man for man. Back the visitors to win this one.

Bet 2: Back South Africa to beat Australia at [2.75]

There's plenty of betting action for rugby fans this Saturday and you can catch up with all the latest tips and previews on the Betting.Betfair Rugby Union pages.

Round three of the Rugby Championships features a must-win clash for Australia and South Africa after both struggled last time out. The Wallabies lost their second game in a row to New Zealand while the Springboks were well beaten in Argentina.

Australia are strong favourites here, but with six defeats in their last seven they aren't a team to rely on. They can call on two of the world's best loose forwards in David Pocock and Michael Hooper, but South Africa have a match winning forward of their own in Malcolm Marx and still have some potential for improvement under new coach Rassie Erasmus. At the current odds, they look the value pick.

Bet 3: Back Trinbago to beat Barbados at [1.41]

First plays last in Saturday's Caribbean Premier League game and it's hard to see the hapless Tridents getting a result against the reigning champions.

Trinbago have won their last five matches in this year's competition, all of them by a healthy margin, including a four wicket thrashing of the Tridents in Bridgetown, can boast the tournament's top run scorer Colin Munro and in Ali Khan and Fawad Ahmed, also have two of this year's top five wicket takers.

Barbados won two of their first three but have been locked in a losing spiral ever since, stumbling to six successive defeats, and while they showed some improvement on Tuesday against St Kitts and Nevis, they have nothing to play for here and are outmatched in every department. Back Trinbago to win comfortably.
