Weekend Football Betting Tips: Back this handicap hat trick

There’s value to be had backing three teams in flying form on the handicaps this weekend



1 year ago

Betzone News’ football betting tips are in a rich vein of form following three winners from four selections in midweek so it seems fitting that we’re siding with three teams in every bit as fine fettle this weekend.

All three are short prices for victory as they chase down titles in their respective divisions (two of them in the same division), but there’s value to be had in not simply backing them to win, but to win handsomely.

Irresistible Tractor Boys will flambé flatlining Grecians

Ipswich Town have been utterly relentless in winning 12 of their last 13 games and the manner of their victories have made them regular handicap betting picks in this column in recent editions.

Kieran McKenna’s side have won by a margin of three goals or more seven times in the aforementioned sequence, including five of their last seven home games and their last two away games against playoff place contenders Peterborough and Barnsley.

Town’s defence has been all but impenetrable since mid-February too, giving up just two goals across their last 14 outings. They should be far too much for mid-table Exeter, who have lost their last five matches.

Bet: Ipswich (-2) to beat Exeter @ 13/8

Table toppers to be two goals too good at fortress Home Park

Third tier leaders Plymouth’s incredible home form this season is a huge part of the reason they’ve been able to keep red-hot Ipswich one point behind them with two games to play.

The Pilgrims will be looking for Home Park win number 20 of the campaign in their 23rd and final league game in front of the faithful and they’re than capable of getting the job down with a bit to spare against a Burton outfit that have nothing left bar professional pride to play for.

Argyle have won by at least two goals in seven of their last 10 home league games and can do so again against the division’s joint-worst road defence.

Bet: Plymouth (-1) to beat Burton @ 11/10

Rampaging Citizens roadshow can lay waste to Craven Cottage

Manchester City will top the Premier League table if, or rather when they beat Fulham, with Arsenal not playing again until Tuesday evening.

City have won 12 of their last 13 games, with the only blot in that run a Champions League quarter final second-leg draw against Bayern Munich after they’d won the first leg 3-0.

Pep Guardiola’s men have claimed each of the last eight of those wins by at least a three-goal margin and have won two of their last three Premier League away matches 4-1.

Fulham have only lost five league games at Craven Cottage this year, but those defeats included a 4-1 reverse against Newcastle and a 3-0 loss to Arsenal. City can emulate those two sides with a comfortable success in west London.
