Chelsea and Tottenham are my best picks of the EPL games this weekend. Also look for Stoke and Southampton to continue their charge this year as they both have home games they will consider themselves great chances of winning.
The 49ers at St Louis should be a Thursday night blockbuster in the NFL. The 49ers have struggled against the Rams in recent years but I have a feeling the boys from the Bay will make a statement tonight. Chicago at Detroit is my other highlight of the weekend and the Lions at home with a head start against their divisional rivals might prove a tasty treat as long as we get more than a 2.5 point head start.
I love the two favorites in the rugby league this weekend. I think South Sydney and the Roosters are near certainties to face off in the Grand Final which would be a dream clash against two clubs who truly despise one another. Strange things happen in finals, but it’s hard to see how the best two teams of the year – and with an extra week’s rest – won’t get the job done. Just be mindful of the handicap margins.
Good luck and good punting.
