Mythbusters: 4 favourites to back against on Saturday
These underdogs represent good value to defy the odds this weekend. If you fancy them all, back the 33/1 double chance accumulator.
Leicester not to beat West Ham (15.00) –
Leicester’s season has disintegrated, with last weekend’s 5-0 pounding at Crystal Palace extending their winless run to four matches.
With several players reportedly unhappy and manager Claude Puel under pressure, the Foxes will struggle to overturn that sequence at the King Power Stadium.
West Ham have lost consecutive matches to Arsenal and Manchester City, but had previously gone three without defeat.
Mansfield not to beat Crawley (15.00) –
Mansfield are without a win in their five home matches since appointing David Flitcroft as manager in March.
Three of those five games have been against bottom-half sides, including both of the last two: a 3-4 defeat to Crewe and 1-1 draw with Port Vale.
Crawley have only lost one of their last four away outings, including a 2-2 draw at fourth-placed Exeter in their last game on the road, and have failed to score in just one of their last 11.
Athletic Bilbao not to beat Real Betis (15.15) –
Athletic Bilbao have failed to beat 18th-placed Deportivo and 17th-placed Levante in their last two home matches.
The hosts are winless in four at the San Mames Stadium, and have won just two of their last 12 matches in all competitions.
That is in contrast to fifth-placed Real Betis, who have produced seven wins and a creditable 0-0 draw at Atletico Madrid from their last eight.
AC Milan not to beat Verona (17.00) –
At this price, Verona are worth backing to follow bottom-placed Benevento by avoiding defeat at the San Siro.
Milan are without a home win in four, having failed to beat 13th-placed Sassuolo before losing to Serie A’s worst side 1-0 a fortnight ago.
Verona are poised for relegation themselves, although they are capable of the spectacular. They brilliantly won the reverse fixture between these two 3-0 in December, and won 4-1 at Fiorentina in January.
