talkSPORT betting tips – Best football bets and expert advice for Sunday 14 April

Apr 13, 2024

Despite this weekend being in between the first and second legs of some huge European quarter-finals, there’s little chance of Sunday’s action being overshadowed.

Sunday’s action features two of the top three in the Premier League alongside some huge games around Europe.

Bayer Leverkusen will be looking to wrap up a first-ever Bundesliga title, while the chase for European spots continues in Serie A and Ligue 1.

Bet of the day

Roma to win at Udinese – 23/20

Daniele Di Rossi has galvanised Roma since taking over after Jose Mourinho’s departure. He’s lifted the Giallorossi within three points of fourth, while they are five points clear in fifth spot – which is likely to be enough for Champions League football.

Roma’s success continued with a 1-0 win at AC Milan in the Europa League on Thursday, their third 1-0 win in four games.

The Giallorossi have lost just two of 25 games against sides beneath them in the table, while Sunday sees them visit an Udinese side who have won once in 16 home games this term. 

Udine have lost six of their eight clashes with the top 10, losing consecutive home matches to Torino and Inter Milan ahead of this one.

Roma make this trip unbeaten in seven league games and they are good value at 23/20 to depart with all three points. 

Special of the day

Bayer Leverkusen to win and both teams to score – 15/8

Bayer Leverkusen are 16 points clear with six games to go and they could wrap up the title this weekend.

Xabi Alonso’s side are on the verge of ending Bayern Munich’s long dominance of German football, having won seven games on the spin.

Leverkusen have won 12 of their 14 home league games this term and it’s hard to see Werder Bremen holding them at bay.

The visitors are 12th in the table and have lost four of their last five league games.

Leverkusen should claim a 10th straight league win, but they may concede along the way.

Werder have scored 15 times in 14 away trips and they’ve scored exactly one goal in each of their last seven trips.

Leverkusen should have an eye on Thursday’s return clash with West Ham, so back the Bundesliga leaders to win and concede at the boosted price of 15/8.

Long shot of the day

Brest to win to nil at Lyon – 5/1

Lyon’s uptick in form has lifted them off the bottom of Ligue 1 and into 10th, with an outside chance of gatecrashing the European spots.

However, Sunday night sees them host France’s surprise package, Brest, who are on course for the Champions League.

For all of Lyon’s recent success, home games have proven a little tricky for them. They’ve won two of their last five league games at their own ground, while they’ve lost four of their seven home meetings with the top nine.

Sixth-placed Lens won 3-0 at Lyon just last month and the visitors – who have won six of seven trips to teams in the bottom half – look tempting as the underdogs.

Half of those six wins have seen Brest keep a clean sheet, while Lyon have suffered five defeats to nil this term.

At 5/1, Brest look good for another victory and another shutout.
