4 To Score: The teams most likely to win you £25k this weekend

Our writers give you the best possible chance in our free-to-play prediction game with their top tips for the first team to score in each division.

4 To Score is Betway’s free-to-play prediction game, where you can win £25,000 by simply predicting the first team to score in the top four divisions.

Last week, our writers pinpointed three of the four correct games, though they couldn’t quite pick the right team.

Let’s see if they can get any closer this time around…


Top pick: West Ham

As readers of this series will already know, 4 To Score winners usually come from clashes between bottom-half sides.

West Ham, who are much-improved under David Moyes, scored after six minutes against Chelsea last weekend.

Stoke boast the worst defensive record in the Premier League and have conceded the division’s earliest goal four times already this season.

Honourable mention: Arsenal

Newcastle have conceded 16 goals in their last six games.

Arsenal won seven successive Premier League games at the Emirates prior to their loss against Manchester United and netted within the opening 20 minutes of matches in five of them.

– Tom Bowles


Top pick: Bristol City

Nottingham Forest have conceded the division’s earliest goal on each of their last two away trips, and fell behind inside 15 minutes in three of the four before that.

So they look vulnerable travelling to third-place Bristol City, who have six wins in their last eight matches and have been 4 To Score winners three times already this season.

Honourable mentions: Ipswich, Burton

Ipswich have scored more goals in the first 10 minutes of matches than everybody but Sheffield United this season, and can be confident of making another fast start against a Reading side that will still be feeling jittery after conceding twice late on to Cardiff on Monday.

The two worst defences in the Championship also meet on Saturday, so take your pick between Burton and Bolton. I’ll go for the away side purely because the Trotters conceded first last weekend.

– Tom Clee


Top pick: Oldham

League One’s 4 To Score winner came from the bottom half of the table for the eighth week running last time.

So Oldham, who spanked Northampton 5-1 last time out and have scored within the first four minutes in both of their last two games, look the best pick.

The Latics take on a Doncaster side that have won just one in five and conceded after three minutes in their last home game.

Honourable mentions: Bradford, Walsall

Bradford are the most prolific first-half side in League One, having netted 22 in the opening 45 minutes, and have the best away record in the division.

Walsall are on a decent run, with three victories from four, and take on Northampton, who were hit for five last time out.

The Cobblers have also conceded 37, the second-most in the division, so it would be no surprise to see them ship plenty this weekend.

– Will Rook


Top pick: Mansfield

Mansfield are reliable scorers at home, having found the net in nine of their 10 league games at Field Mill so far.

Expect them to put a few past Yeovil, who have conceded 29 goals away from home this season – eight more than any other team in the division.

The Glovers have let in two or more goals in nine of their 10 away games this year, and fell behind inside seven minutes in two of their last three.

Honourable mentions: Carlisle, Crawley

Carlisle have been 4 To Score winners on three occasions this season, and are a solid pick again this week against 19th-place Port Vale.

Crawley are also a decent shout against a Crewe side that have a habit of conceding early goals, having been the 4 To Score losers three times already this season.
