WGM’s weekend preview

Written by Ben Blaschke

With the tennis, Formula 1 and MotoGP all finished for 2013, our attention is now well and truly focused on football across Europe and the US sports over the coming months.

The American Football season in particular is heading towards the business end of the season with two huge games coming up in Week 13. On Sunday the Broncos head to Kansas City in slightly unusual circumstances with both sides having lost last week. Denver will be stewing over a missed opportunity when they threw away a 24-0 lead to go down 34-31 to the Patriots while the Chiefs have slipped to 9-2 after a 9-0 start to the season. Both sides now boast an identical record this season but the signs aren’t great for Kansas City and we can see Denver consigning them to three losses in a row here.

The other big clash comes on Tuesday morning our time as New Orleans travel to Seattle to face the Seahawks. This is a fascinating match-up. Both sides boast excellent records in Monday Night Football while the Saints’ brilliant passing game – the second best in the NFL – will be tested by a Seahawks defence which is the second best at defending against this style of offense. It will be close but we like the Saints in this one.

There was some huge news in the NBA this week with Chicago’s go-to man Derrick Rose ruled out for the season yet again following more knee surgery. The Bulls’ season now looks to be nosediving with Rose’s absence coming on the back of four consecutive losses. It’s business as usual however for Indiana, Miami, San Antonio and Portland who continue to set the pace. Keep backing each of them at the line this weekend.

The biggest game of the EPL this weekend sees Tottenham host Manchester United with both sides looking to put the disappointments of last week behind them. In particular it looms as a test of Spurs’ title credentials following their 6-0 loss to Manchester City but don’t be surprised if this one finishes in a stalemate. Chelsea will also be looking to put another dent in Southampton’s great start to the season, while Arsenal face a tricky away game to Cardiff City.

Good luck and good punting.
