The Premier League features some skinny prices this week as many of the big guns have home matches that should see them collect all three points.

Man City get the ball rolling at 7/20 to topple 7/1 Everton in lunchtime kick-off, despite losing twice to the Toffees last season. The three o’clock kick-offs then feature Liverpool at 7/20 to beat Wolves (7/1), Chelsea priced 8/15 -1 goal against Swansea (12/1) and even out-of-sorts Arsenal priced at 2/5 to topple visiting Bolton (23/4).

Newcastle (4/5) v Blackburn (3/1), Wigan (5/2) v Tottenham (19/20) and West Brom (5/4) v Fulham (19/10) then precede Man United’s trip to Stoke (5/1) in the televised evening match, where the champions are 1/2 on the back of their incredible domestic form.

Sunday’s action will see two promoted sides going for back-to-back victories, as QPR kick-off as 13/10 favourites against 9/5 Aston Villa and Norwich (7/5) welcome Sunderland (17/10) to Carrow Road.

The Rugby World Cup will also be grabbing headlines this weekend and Scotland are the home nation with the toughest test, as they face a match billed as a qualification decider. The Scots are 11/8 underdogs against 8/11 Argentina with the draw deemed a 14/1 shot.

Having lost to England already, the South Americans know defeat would surely seal a group stage exit. Fresh from their astounding victory over Australia last weekend, Ireland have a decidedly simpler task against Russia and England should brush Romania aside based on the -44 handicap (10/11), leaving New Zealand (10/11 -17) v France (17/2 to win) to top the billing.

Meanwhile, the weekend’s racing spotlight is firmly fixed on Newmarket where a trio of contests should get the blood pumping.

The Cambridgeshire is one of the flat season’s top handicap races but has traditionally proved a minefield for punters, while the Sun Chariot Stakes sees Sahpresa aiming to claim victory for a third consecutive year. The Cheveley Park Stakes completes the hat trick of quality action, as the top two-year-old fillies go toe-to-toe in the prestigious Group 1.

On the Formula 1 track Sebastian Vettel has the chance to wrap up the Drivers’ Championship with another chequered at the Singapore Grand Prix and heading into the weekend, the German is 10/11 to do just that.

The Red Bull driver is followed by Lewis Hamilton (4/1), Fernando Alonso (8/1) and Jenson Button (8/1) in the betting, but can any of them prevent Vettel sealing his victory at the now infamous night race?
