Football

It’s derby time in North London and both managers will look to their deadline day signings for inspiration. Don’t expect the 4-4 thrills of earlier in the season but the draw, in particular the 1-1 (at 6/1 with Skybet), looks possible.

Rugby Union

The Six Nations kicks off this weekend and with the exception of Wales, Northern Hemisphere international rugby looks weak. The ‘nailed-on’ bet of the weekend is Wales to beat Scotland. Back them in the handicapped market (-5 points) at even money with Bet365.

BAFTAs

This year, BAFTA looks likely to ply homegrown thesps with awards (Slumdog Millionaire/Kate Winslet). But Mickey Rourke looks likely to be one Yank walking away with a gold face on a stick and is 11/10 with William Hill to be Best Actor for his role in The Wrestler.
