Welcome to The Weekend Cometh! Bringing you sporting bets from around the globe for the coming weekend. This weekend’s North London derby has inspired a Rivals Special, with four games between local and bitter rivals below. So without further ado, check out these huge clashes for the weekend.
England v Australia (3:00pm Saturday)
In the second week of Autumn Rugby Union internationals, England take on Australia in what is expected to be a frenetic and hard fought battle at Twickenham.
England opened up their campaign with a 21-8 victory over Argentina, in a scrappy performance by the SIx Nations champions, while the Wallabies beat Wales 29-21 in Cardiff, thanks in part to a vital try scored just before half-time, with the Aussies holding the home side at bay in the second half.
England have won the last four meetings between the sides at an average of twelve points per game. England should win by a try score at least
England To Win by 6-10 pts @17/4
AS Roma v Lazio (5:00pm Saturday)
In a massive Serie A clash at the top end of the table, the “Derby Della Capitale” pits Roma against Lazio, with both sides in excellent form going into the match.
Roma have only lost two games this season and are currently on a run of five straight wins, which includes a 3-0 win over Chelsea, while Lazio have lost just once, winning the last nine in a row, including a win away to Juventus.
Lazio won 3-1 in the previous meeting and with their significant improvement, along with the lack of pace in the Roma ranks, a win for the visitors looks a strong possibility once again.

Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid (7:45pm Saturday)
“El Derbi Madrileno” otherwise known as the Madrid derby takes place for the first time at the Wanda Metropolitano, with both sides needing a win to keep pace with leaders Barcelona in La Liga.
Atletico Madrid have struggled to break down sides so far this season, with nine draws to their name already, affecting both the La Liga and Champions League campaigns.
Real Madrid’s “galacticos” have come under fire on more than one occasion this season, with Zinedine Zidane’s side already dropping ten points in the league and failing to beat Tottenham over two games.
In the first derby at the new ground, Atletico will desperately want to beat their rivals, but despite the question marks over Real’s motivation this season, a share of the spoils looks more likely as both will be looking to avoid a costly defeat.
Draw Result @12/5
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Miami Dolphins (6:00pm Sunday)
The Buccaneers take the 200 mile trip to Miami, as they take on the Dolphins in this NFL Regular Season clash between these Florida rivals. Due to the placement of the sides within the league structure, they only meet within the regular season once every four years, with pre-season games the only other opportunity to meet.
The Buccaneers are 3-6 for the season but did end a run of five straight losses with a 15-10 win over the New York Jets.
The Dolphins go into the game with a 4-5 record and have lost their last three games, worryingly conceding 112 points in the process.
The Buccaneers have won three of the last four meetings in both regular and pre-season matches and a close game is expected, with very little separating them in the markets.
