Tim Clement is joined in the studio this week by Sky Bet trader Chris Spicer, TEAMtalk’s Pete Hall and Sky Sports’ Jon Holmes.

The focus is on England’s friendly against Chile at Wembley on Friday night, with odds on a home win drifting following a number of withdrawals throughout the week.

Pete, Jon and Chris all agree with the punters that Chile are capable of upsetting Roy Hodgson’s side at Wembley, and the quartet also look at the odds on a number of fringe players to make the plane to Brazil next summer.

Republic of Ireland and Scotland’s friendlies are also previewed, as are the World Cup qualifiers, including the big one between Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal and Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s Sweden.

Super 6

Although one of Saturday’s featured Super 6 games – Oldham v MK Dons – has been called off due to international call-ups, the free-to-play football predictor game rolls on, albeit with a reduced jackpot.

With just five featured games now on the bill, the jackpot is £20,000 for Round 16, with Sky Bet League One taking centre stage during the international break.

Sky Bet’s Jamie Casey previews each of the remaining games on the bill based on recent league form and head-to-head records. Click here to enter Super 6 now.

Carlisle v Crawley Town

Carlisle last 6: DLWLLD

Crawley last 6: DWLLLL

Crawley had the better of Carlisle over their two meetings in League One last season, winning 2-0 at Brunton Park before holding the Blues to a 1-1 draw. However, despite being three points better off than their opponents, they’ve suffered a loss of form with four defeats on the spin.

Leyton Orient v Preston North End

Orient last 6: DWWLWW

Preston last 6: LLWDWD

Orient may have suffered a surprise exit from the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy on Tuesday night but they remain top of League One. Fourth-placed Preston are their guests on Saturday, hoping to improve on their record of just one point from six against the O’s last season.

Notts County v Wolves

Notts County last 6: WLLLWL

Wolves last 6: WDWWWD

Bottom of the table Notts County host title favourites Wolves with the odds stacked against them. In the 30 League One games these two sides have been involved in this term, only four have been draws, although the Magpies did hold them to a draw in the second round of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy before progressing on penalties.

Sheffield United v Gillingham

Sheffield United last 6: DLWDWL

Gillingham last 6: WLLWLW

Sheffield United can move level on points with Gillingham with a win today, but it’ll take a winning margin of at least five goals to leapfrog Peter Taylor’s men. Neither side are showing consistency in what will be the first fixture between the sides since they were Championship sides in 2004.

Tranmere v Bristol City

Tranmere last 6: LWLDWD

Bristol City last 6: DLLWDW

Only goal difference separates these two sides, with Bristol City having scored more goals than any other team in the bottom half of League One. On top of that, the hosts have the second worst defensive record in the division, though both sides are unbeaten in three.
