Goals galore in Arsenal vs. Man City? Will Spurs hammer Rochdale?
Even though the 'Home Banker' landed again the column incurred a small loss over the weekend which would have been a tidy profit if Leicester City had got the job done against Stoke instead of drawing 1-1. Another busy midweek with Premier League, FA Cup and various action across Europe, as Arsenal and Manchester City lock horns for the second time in five days.

The Home Banker
Arsenal face champions elect Manchester City at the Emirates on Thursday and it looks a tall order for the Gunners, who have only won two of their last 11 Premier League meetings with City. They were also outplayed during Sunday's Carabao Cup final so it's little wonder they are a 7/2 chance at home. Arsenal have also gone nine Premier League matches without a clean sheet and Arsene Wenger bemoaned the fact his defenders "lost concentration" at crucial times at Wembley. Goals could again be on the agenda here, with 'Over 3.5' looking a rock solid call at 11/10.
Selection: Over 3.5 goals at 11/10 with bet365.
The Tasty Treble
Given the stats and how they dominated on Sunday it's difficult to look past Pep Guardiola's City at 3/4 to win in north London. They've only lost two of their last 35 Premier League matches, winning 29 during that sequence. Elsewhere Real Madrid (4/9) have found a bit of form, are scoring goals again and should be too hot for Espanyol in La Liga. Add Getafe at 10/11 who face a very ordinary Deportivo La Coruna at home and you have a treble paying better than 7/2.
Selection: £2 on the treble at 3.82/1 with bet365.
The Euro Wager
Lazio are up to third in Serie following a 3-0 win at the weekend and they look worthy favourites to see off AC Milan in Wednesday's Coppa Italia semifinal second leg. The teams drew 0-0 at the San Siro but Lazio, who beat the Rossoneri 4-1 at home earlier in the season, will be confident of getting the job done in Rome.
The Wildcard Tip
Heavy snow forced the cancellation of Juventus vs. Atalanta on Sunday but the pair face each other in a Coppa Italia semifinal second leg this week. The Old Lady have a 1-0 advantage on aggregate from the first leg and looked very assured defensively first time round. A 2-0 result in Turin is chalked up at 11/2 and could be worth a shot given the fact Juve have been keeping clean sheets for fun in recent weeks.
Selection: £2 on Juventus to win 2-0 at 11/2 with bet365.
The Bookie Basher
Rochdale recorded a stunning 2-2 draw with Tottenham at Spotland to earn this money-spinning FA Cup replay yet the ride is expected to end at Wembley with the League One strugglers priced up at 33/1 to spring a shock. Mauricio Pochettinho will again shuffle his pack but Tottenham's quality at "home" should be obvious and it could pay to back a 5-0 result at fancy prices.
Selection: £1 on Tottenham to win 5-0 at 10/1 with bet365.
