BettingPro’s 129/1 Cross-Sport ACCA For May 16/17

A £10 stake returns £1,303.70

Carriacou to win 1.35 Auteuil (Horse Racing, Saturday 13:35 BST) – Last year’s Grand Steeple-chase de Paris winner Carriacou was ridden by Davy Russell to that success last May and he has been ridden by the Irishman in his last four starts, but Russell is obviously unable to ride him due to travel restrictions on Saturday. Carriacou made a pleasing return just before lockdown was implemented when fifth over a trip far too short for him but he travelled like the best horse before blowing up late on. He should strip fitter for that and put in a big run.

BATE Borisov to beat Slutsk & both teams to score (Football, Saturday 17:00 BST) – BATE Borisov have recovered from a poor start to the season and are firing on all cylinders right now, having hit the top of the table last weekend. Only goal difference is separating them from second-place Slutsk heading into this top of the table clash, but that should turn into points on Saturday. BATE will make it seven without loss in all competitions by winning for the sixth time during this run, although Slutsk should continue their healthy goal-scoring rate by at least netting a consolation goal.

Over 7.5 total legs during Dimitri van den Bergh v Dirk van Duijvenbode (Darts, 21:30 BST) – Belgium’s Van den Bergh has been taken in by Peter Wright after being unable to travel home and has benefited from regular practice with the reigning World Champion. Van den Bergh reached the Quarter-Finals of the UK Open in March and comes up against a player in perhaps the best form of his career to date. After regaining a Tour Card at Qualifying School in January, Van Duijvenbode reached the Semi-Finals of both a Players Championship event and the Belgian Championship and looks an altogether different player to the one who dropped off the tour at the end of last season. Van den Bergh has won ten of their 12 previous meetings, though this will be the first in over two years, and all the signs point towards it being a close-run contest. Van Duijvenbode will need to brush up on his doubles from his opening group campaign if he is to have any chance of progressing, but the Dutchman and Dimitri are well-matched in all areas, so expect to see at least eight legs played out in this best of nine clash.

Alistair Overeem to beat Walt Harris (UFC/MMA, Sunday 05:15 BST) – Alistair Overeem is looking to bounce back from the last-gasp knockout defeat at the hands of Jarizinho Rozenstruik and while the bookies do not fancy his chances, I do. The London-born Dutchman dominated that contest until he was cracked with a huge shot in the final moments, and while he is past his peak he is not washed up. He will have to be wary of Walt Harris’ power here, so I expect to see a calculated performance from Overeem that gets him back in the win column.

Bayern Munich to win to nil vs. Union Berlin (Football, Sunday 17:00 BST) – Bayern Munich are four points clear as the Bundesliga returns and they are riding a 15-game unbeaten streak going into this weekend. Could there be some rustiness from the lay-off? Probably. But should they still be too good for Union Berlin who were in pretty miserable form when the Bundesliga went on hiatus in March? Yes. Three points and a clean sheet could be on the cards as Bayern resume their quest for an eighth consecutive German title.
