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 22/1 accumulator.
Roma not to beat Udinese –
Udinese, who have not lost any of their last five home matches, will make life difficult for Roma.
Massimo Oddo’s side held Milan to a 1-1 draw last time out at the Stadio Friuli, having scored 15 goals in their four previous home outings.
Roma had failed to win seven consecutive matches before back-to-back victories over Serie A’s bottom two, Verona and Benevento.
Saturday’s trip to Udine could be another struggle.
Fulham not to beat Aston Villa –
Aston Villa’s price to avoid defeat is striking, given they have won seven consecutive matches.
Steve Bruce’s side have taken three points away at promotion-hopefuls Middlesbrough and Sheffield United on that run, and moved into the top two with victory in the Second City derby last time out.
Fulham have not taken on a side with promotion credentials at Craven Cottage since a 1-1 draw with Derby in November, and are a short price to win.
Barcelona not to beat Eibar –
Barcelona have drawn consecutive league matches, as they stumble towards the La Liga finish line, and they could find life difficult at Eibar.
Ernesto Valverde’s side have only scored more than once in one of their last four matches, and will likely have one eye on next week’s Champions League tie with Chelsea.
Eibar are on an impressive run. They have only lost a tight game against Atletico Madrid in their last 10 outings, and thrashed Sevilla 5-1 last time out at home.
Ayr not to beat East Fife –
In the Scottish League One, East Fife are worth backing to avoid defeat away at heavy-favourites Ayr.
The hosts have lost four of their last five home matches, a run that includes defeat to bottom-side Forfar.
Given that East Fife are unbeaten in three on the road, there is money to be made in Scotland on Saturday.
