This is the first of many upcoming weekly sports blogs that will highlight games to watch and bet on the Lunabets.

Last weeks round ups:

  • Australian Open: Djokovic wins the Australian open for the 10th time.
  • NBA: Terry Rozier scores 31 points as Charlotte Hornets topple Miami Heat. Officials miss foul on Lebron James as the Lakers lose to the Celtics 125-121.
  • NFL: Chiefs to face Eagles in Super Bowl 57.
  • Football: Manchester City score a late winner to beat Arsenal and proceed to the 5th round.


The Premier League stand out matches for this week:

Tottenham vs Manchester city (Sunday 5th February)

  • This is another important match for the title contenders Manchester City. Historically they have always found Tottenham to be a tough opponent and, although last week they beat the side 4-2 at the Etihad, they are now away from home and face a Tottenham that must reverse their present form in order to remain in the race for top 4.

Chelsea vs Fulham (Friday 3rd February)

  • The West London derby is important for pride as much as for points. 7th place Fulham face their 10th place rivals at Stamford Bridge in what will be a very important game for both clubs. Chelsea are struggling to find their feet this season having only won 1 game in their last 5 games however a win at home will take them above Fulham in the League.
