Premier League Best Bet

Brentford v Leeds 4 p.m. Sunday

Brentford set the tone for a successful debut season in the Premier League with a 2-0 home win over Arsenal on opening day and the Bees can sign off with victory over relegation-threatened Leeds.

The visitors’ desperation for points is clearly factored into the prize money, but Everton were in a similar situation last weekend when they were beaten 3-2 at home by Thomas Frank’s side.

After a promising start, the Bees looked set to be dragged into survival scrap during a seven-game, eight-game losing streak in January and February.

Since then, however, their form has been outstanding and their last ten results have included seven wins and a 0-0 draw with Tottenham.

Goals have flowed more freely since the January arrival of playmaker Christian Eriksen and the Bees have scored at least twice in those seven recent wins, including a famous 4-1 win at Chelsea and a 3-0 success against Southampton at their last home. match.

All the pressure is on Leeds, despite their last-minute equalizer at home to Brighton last weekend. They also needed an added-time goal to earn a 2-2 draw with Brentford in the reverse game in December, but could find themselves empty-handed on a test trip to west London .

Best Ligue 1 bet

Sunderland v Wycombe
Sky Sports Football & Main Event, 3pm Saturday

Sunderland and Wycombe both proved tough to beat en route to the League One playoff final and both sets of supporters should prepare for a tense and tight promotion decider.

Last weekend’s FA Cup final between Liverpool and Chelsea went 120 minutes without a goal and the 8-1 on no goalscorer in normal time from the League One tie seems like a decent price.

Sunderland are unbeaten for 15 matches, courtesy of Patrick Roberts’ crucial goal in the semi-final second leg at Sheffield on Wednesday, but they have scored just four goals in their last six away matches at the Stadium of Light .

This run includes 0-0 draws at Charlton, Lincoln and Plymouth and the Black Cats, 6-5 to win in 90 minutes, could struggle to break down a plucky Wycombe side whose last six outings include nil wins against seventh-placed Plymouth, fourth-placed Wednesday and third-placed MK Dons in the first leg of the playoffs.

European best bet

Marseille against Strasbourg BT Sport Extra 1, 8 p.m. Saturday

Marseille squandered the chance to seal Champions League qualification for Ligue 1 last weekend when they lost to front-three rivals Rennes and Jorge Sampaoli’s men need a point at home to Strasbourg on the last day.

The draw seems a tempting prize given Marseille have been in uneven form, losing two of their last three league games and they were beaten 3-2 on aggregate by Feyenoord in the Europa Conference League semi-finals .

Dimitri Payet, their main source of creative inspiration, is ruled out after tearing a calf muscle in the 0-0 draw at home to the Dutch side and visitors Strasbourg will not be left out.

They enter the final round of fixtures in fifth place, having lost just two of their 19 league matches in 2022. A draw would see them secure European football if Nice fail to win at Reims, so it’s possible that neither team needs to push for a winner if the scores are tied late in the game at the Stade Vélodrome.
