The weekend is almost here and The Sportsman are putting together yet another accumulator. With it being the international break, we have decided to make our selections this week across a multitude of sports including the huge heavyweight showdown in Las Vegas, World Cup qualifiers and the return of Emma Raducanu. Here is this week’s 119/1 acca, with odds courtesy of Betfred.
Tyson Fury to beat Deontay Wilder – (4/11)
Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder go head-to head for a third time, with The Gypsy King’s WBC and The Ring magazine titles on the line in Las Vegas.
The pair last met in February 2020, with Fury dominating from the first bell, delivering the American his first professional defeat when his corner threw in the towel. That fight followed their original meeting in 2018, a draw - although despite being dropped twice, many believed that the Brit had done more than enough to claim a wide win on the scorecards. We can’t see anything other than a Fury win on Saturday night.
Liam Smith to beat Anthony Fowler – (8/13)
This clash between the two Liverpool fighters is going to be a significant one for the bragging rights in the city as they go head-to-head at the M&S Bank Arena.
Former WBO light-middleweight champion Liam Smith has mixed it with some top fighters since turning pro in 2008 and we’re backing the veteran to triumph over Rio 2016 Team GB star Anthony Fowler.
Scotland to beat Israel – (19/20)
This crunch clash is a key one for Steve Clarke in the hopes of his Scotland side qualifying for next year’s World Cup in Qatar. Their recent record against Israel is poor having not won in their last four meetings, but with an expected electric crowd at Hampden Park they should be able to grind out a victory. Scotland also go into this game on the back of good wins against Moldova and Austria.
It is the big one this weekend in rugby league, the Betfred Super League Grand Final, and it is set to be a thrilling encounter between two great sides. The Saints are about to enter their third consecutive final in the competition, having won the last two and with the Challenge Cup triumph behind them already this calendar year, we believe that they emerge victorious against their French opposition at Old Trafford.
Having won last year’s Turkish GP, Hamilton will be feeling confident that he can repeat his excellent performance as his intense battle with Max Verstappen continues. It was at this track where the Briton sealed his seventh title world title win last season, and that might just spur him on again this weekend.
The exciting young Briton is back in action after her historic US Open victory last month and we feel that she could another accolade on her young shoulders at Indian Wells. She plays a dangerous serve and always has the desire to run around for almost any shot as well as showing a composure beyond her years.
