Roma not to beat SPAL (14.00) –
Roma’s stirring victory over Barcelona in the Champions League has masked their faltering domestic form.
Eusebio di Francesco’s side have won just one of their last four league matches, a scratchy 2-1 win over Genoa, and will presumably have one eye on their semi-final at Anfield on Tuesday.
That means SPAL are well worth a bet to extend their eight-match unbeaten run, which includes creditable 0-0 draws with Juventus and Fiorentina. Another stalemate is .
Sunderland not to beat Burton (15.00) –
Sunderland’s performances have picked up recently, but backing them not to win at the Stadium of Light is nearly always a winner.
The Mackems have won just two of their last 32 home matches, with their current seven-match winless run including dropped points against bottom-half Ipswich, Sheffield Wednesday and Norwich.
Burton have picked up 21 of their 35 points this season away from home, and avoided defeat in eight of their nine away matches against bottom-half teams. They are a fantastic bet to take at least a point.
Shrewsbury not to beat Bury (15.00) –
Tuesday’s 2-0 home defeat to Charlton confirmed that Shrewsbury’s automatic promotion charge is all but done.
Paul Hurst’s exhausted side are without a goal in three matches and have won just two of six since losing midfielder Abu Ogogo, who will miss the rest of the season.
Bury’s relegation to League Two has been confirmed, but fighting back from 2-0 down to draw 3-3 at Doncaster on Tuesday suggests that they will not roll over in this one.
Swindon not to beat Grimsby (15.00) –
Failure to win any of their last four home matches, three of which were against bottom-half opposition, has probably cost Swindon a play-off position.
The Robins are winless in six overall and have conceded nine goals and scored just five since winning their first match under Phil Brown in March.
Grimsby are still battling for survival, with defeat at third-place Wycombe their only one in four matches. They can take advantage of their hosts’ predicament.
