Straight sets Federer win on home turf makes weekend best bets
Got that Friday feeling yet? Well, we have and to kick-off another weekend of sporting endeavours the news.Ladbrokes team have put their collective loaves together to pluck out three choice bets, featuring tennis, NFL and football on this occasion.
Roger Federer to beat Grigor Dimitrov 2-0 @ 8/13
The Swiss maestro is chasing a sixth ATP 500 series title in Basel and after coming through a slight scare against Denis Istomin, we’re backing Fed to see off Dimitrov in more clinical fashion in the quarters.
At 33, the Basel native has a touch of the Benjamin Button’s about him this season, where he’s enjoying one of his most successful ever, points wise, in his long and unparalleled singles career.
Federer saw off the Bulgarian 2-0 at this exact same stage in Basel 12 months ago and just won the Shanghai Masters in his last ATP appearance in September.
Under 43.0 points in Detroit Lions v Atlanta Falcons @ 5/4
Scoring points has been tough for the Lions this season, but sit on top of the NFC North thanks to a dominating defence. The Falcons, on the other hand, are struggling in every facet of the game.
The men from Michigan have allowed the fewest yards-per-game at 290.3, while claiming the silver medal in points-shipped-per-contest at 15.0
Not since a week one mauling of the New York Giants have the Lions managed to score more than 25 points though, while the Falcons, who’ve lost four, managed just seven last time out.
Both teams to score in Southampton v Stoke @ 1/1
Having murdered Sunderland 8-0 in their last game Ronald Koeman’s razor-sharp Saints must surely be able to muster a goal against Stoke.
Meanwhile, no team have prevented the Potters from scoring in their last five games in all competitions, while the last seven meetings between the clubs have produced goals at both ends.
