The biggest sports event in the United States is tonight’s Super Bowl which follows two live Premier League fixtures. Nobody saw Manchester City’s loss at Newcastle coming but the Premier League defending champions can get their season back on track by beating Arsenal at the Etihad. City have won 14 of their last 15 fixtures at home and Arsenal are an inconsistent side.
The Gunners beat Chelsea in the league but were knocked out of the FA Cup by Manchester United. The visitors have several players missing due to injury and others who are doubtful to make the side today. City average more than two goals a game at home but are not watertight at the back. Therefore, BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE is the bet at 8/11 with Betfair.
Leicester were impressive against Liverpool in midweek and it would not have been against the run of play if they had left Anfield with three points. Manchester United failed to win under Old Gunnar Solskjaer for the first time when two late goals secured a draw against Burnley at Old Trafford. The teams meet today in the East Midlands where the DRAW looks on the cards at 12/5 with Ladbrokes. Leicester are known as the Foxes and tonight we like the LA RAMS to win the Super Bowl at 23/20 with Betfair.
The main racing action is the Dublin Racing Festival at Leopardstown but yet again there is no turf racing in Britain so we go to Southwell for the tip. The sprint handicap art 2.45pm is actually over four furlongs and 214 yards so it is even more a test of speed. Ornate is a course and distance winner who was second in a similar race at Newcastle 12 days ago. Uncle Jerry ticks most of the boxes and Foolaad has won four times at the track and minimum distance. However, on form and ratings we should be backing ORNATE at 2/1 with Ladbrokes.
