Jon Wilde: Back Alexander Levy each-way to win Italian Open


Alexander Levy is a player who knows how to get the job done when in contention on the European Tour, as his four victories in as many years indicate. The latest of those was in China in April and having finished just outside the each-way places in last week’s Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, the 27-year-old is clearly in good enough form to capitalise on a course where his superb putting will be an important attribute to score well.

Lorenzo Gahol: Back Real Madrid -3.5 to beat Anadolu Efes


Real Madrid topped the 2016-17 Euroleague regular season only to lose to eventual champion Fenerbahce in the Final Four in Istanbul and to CSKA Moscow in the third-place battle. The consolation for Real Madrid was it won a fourth consecutive Copa del Rey title and Sergio Llull was voted as Euroleague MVP after putting up 16.5 points and 5.9 assists. Llull, however, is expected to miss much of the 2017-18 season after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee while playing for Spain in a Eurobasket tune-up game against Belgium in Tenerife last August. Expected to lead Pablo Laso-mentored Los Blancos in his absence are big men Gustavo Ayon and Anthony Randolph, Jaycee Carroll and Rising Star winner Luka Doncic. Efes, meanwhile, finished sixth in the 2017 Euroleague regular season and lost to Olympiacos in five games in the playoffs. Head coach Velimir Perasovic returns along with Derrick Brown, Bryant Dunston and Dogus Balbay. Real Madrid won both meetings against Efes last season and we expect that to happen again as the Los Blancos have won six of their last seven meeetings against Efes including their last two trips in Istanbul.


Leigh Copson: Back Devin Funchess to score a touchdown anytime


I recommend backing Devin Funchess to continue his fine form for Carolina in the Thursday Night Football clash with the Philadelphia Eagles. The Panthers wide receiver made a slow start to the season as he made just six catches through the first two weeks, but quarterback Cam Newton has been looking for him consistently over the past three weeks and that has resulted in him becoming the Carolina quarterback’s favourite target. Funchess has caught 18 of his 27 targets for 181 yards and three touchdowns in this time, and I like the chances of him going in for another score against a Philadelphia defense that ranks poorly against the pass.


Brendan O'Neill: Back Santos to beat Ponte Preta

Santos will look to maintain their pursuit of Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A leaders Corinthians on Thursday evening with victory away to lowly Ponte Preta. Santástico have won two on the trot in Brazil's top flight to narrow the gap between them and the league leaders to eight points after Corinthians dropped points away to Sao Paulo (1-1) and Cruzeiro (1-1) in their last two outings. And with Ponte Preta sitting just a point above the drop zone ahead of Matchday 27, and having lost three of their last four league outings, Santos look a steal at 9/5 with Betfair to make it three wins in row.
