On telly: 15 cheeky bets from across the Premier League and La Liga TV games

Put your feet up and earn some profit with this assortment of picks from the week's best televised matches...

Chelsea v Southampton – Tuesday (Sky Sports 1, 19.45)

Both teams to score – {ODDS:151687104:1/1}

Every single Premier League team have kept a clean sheet since Chelsea last managed one.

Assuming that the hosts score, as they have done in every home match this season, then this should be safe.

Chelsea to score in the first half – {ODDS:151687269:4/7}

Antonio Conte’s side have scored in the first half of their last seven league matches at Stamford Bridge.

Considering that Southampton have only kept away clean sheets in the league at Sunderland and West Brom in 2017, this looks a sure thing. 

Manolo Gabbiadini to score first for Southampton – {ODDS:153350364:9/2}

Gabbiadini has scored six goals for the Saints since his summer move, and will start this game after his return from injury.

At such long odds, this is an obvious punt.

Barcelona v Osasuna – Wednesday (Sky Sports 2, 18.30)

Barcelona to score over 1.5 first half goals – {ODDS:151725168:2/5}

It is difficult to find too much value here, considering how dominant Barcelona are likely to be.

The Catalans to score over 1.5 first half goals at home to bottom-side Osasuna seems a safe bet, though.

Barcelona to win (-6) – {ODDS:151726471:11/2}

Having beaten Osasuna 7-0 last season, and 8-0 not too long ago, this is not such an unreasonable bet.

Barca, who are formidable at home, have won by this margin twice already this season, too.

Lionel Messi to score a hat-trick – {ODDS:153379440:5/1}

Again, this is a punt, but after Messi’s sensational brace at the Bernabeu on Sunday, he is clearly firing.

The Argentine has two hat-tricks already this season, and is a decent bet to make it three here.

Crystal Palace v Tottenham – Wednesday (Sky Sports 1, 20.00)

Tottenham to win (-1) – {ODDS:151689630:8/5}

Crystal Palace are in fine form, but are still not a patch on Tottenham.

Comfortably the country’s best side in 2017, Spurs should extend their run of seven consecutive league victories here.

Tottenham to win both halves – {ODDS:151688872:14/5}

For similar reasons, this is a terrific bet at good value.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have won their last five halves of Premier League football, and should win two more here.

Harry Kane to score a hat-trick – {ODDS:153350651:16/1}

Much more of a punt, but Harry Kane’s record in London derbies makes this a worthwhile bet.

The 23-year-old has scored against Arsenal, West Ham, Chelsea and notched a hat-trick against Fulham this season.

Deportivo La Coruna v Real Madrid – Wednesday (Sky Sports 2, 20.30)

Real Madrid to win (-1) – {ODDS:151730110:1/1}

At evens, this is an obvious bet.

Real Madrid have won six of their last eight league games – only suffering defeat in Sunday’s El Clasico – while Deportivo have lost three of their last five matches by more than one goal.

Real Madrid to score in the first half – {ODDS:151728799:2/5}

These are short odds, but a first half goal for the visitors is surely a certainty.

They have managed to net in the opening period of 12 of their last 14 league matches, while Deportivo have conceded in seven of their last 10 home games.

Marco Asensio to score first for Real Madrid – {ODDS:153379166:6/1}

With Gareth Bale out injured, and Cristiano Ronaldo rested, Asensio is a likely start in Zinedine Zidane’s front three.

The 21-year-old is available at longer odds than Isco, James Rodriguez and Lucas Vazquez to score first for his side, and therefore represents fine value.

Manchester City v Manchester United – Thursday (Sky Sports 1, 20.00)

Manchester United/Draw – {ODDS:151689113:19/20}

Manchester City have failed to beat Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool and Everton at the Etihad Stadium this season.

At nearly evens, failure to beat their local rivals is a good bet.

Goal in both halves – {ODDS:151689382:4/6}

There have been goals in both halves of Manchester United’s last four league games.

Considering City’s offensive outlook, a goal in both halves of this game is likely. 

Marcus Rashford to score and the game to finish as a draw – {ODDS:153356649:8/1}

Rashford has scored in three of his last four starts, netted the winner at the Etihad last season, and will pose danger to a defence that has struggled against direct, pacey strikers all season.

Including the draw boosts the odds considerably, too.
