4 To Score: The teams that could land you £25k this weekend
Our writers give you the best possible chance in our new, free-to-play prediction game with their top tips for the first team to score in each division.
4 To Score is Betway's new, free-to-play prediction game.
To be in with a chance of winning £25,000 every single weekend, simply guess the first team to score in the 3 o'clock kick-offs in each of England's top four divisions.
Here are our writers' predictions for each division...
Top pick: Watford
With no stand-out pick this week, it might be worth putting your faith in the Hornets.
Vicarage Road will be rocking following the club’s 2-0 win at Southampton last weekend, a result which extended their unbeaten start to the season and propelled them into the top four.
Marco Silva’s side scored eight minutes into their last home fixture – the 2-2 draw with Liverpool – while Manchester City, for all their sexiness in attack, aren’t great in defence.
This left-field selection also means you’re more likely to pocket the money all for yourself should your four come in.
Honourable mention: Liverpool
If you want to play it safe, then go for the Reds.
Our spreadsheet, perhaps not unsurprisingly, reveals home teams that are heavy favourites to win tend to deliver the first goal of the game.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are terrific going forward, and scored four in their last home league game, against Arsenal.
Burnley will be without Tom Heaton, too, although the visitors’ fine start to the season – plus their opening-day win at Chelsea – means they’re unlikely to be pushed over.
Top pick: Hull
Hull have struggled on the road this season but at home they’ve been prolific.
The Tigers have scored 10 goals in their three matches at the KCOM so far, including 4-1 and 4-0 thrashings of Burton and Bolton.
Having notched within the first 13 minutes in both, I fancy them to come out of the blocks quickly against another struggling side in Sunderland.
Honourable mentions: Sheffield United, Ipswich
Sheffield United have won their last four league matches in a row and still have a perfect home record with three wins from three.
They scored the division’s first goal last time they played at Bramall Lane and are a good shout to do the same again against stuttering Norwich.
Bolton, meanwhile, have conceded first in six of their seven matches so far, four of which have come inside the first quarter on an hour.
On that basis alone, Ipswich are well worth considering.
Top pick: Blackburn
Research continues to prove that home winners are most likely to score earliest.
For that reason, I’m putting my faith in League One’s biggest home banker this weekend: Blackburn.
Honourable mentions: Wigan, Charlton
For similar reasons, Wigan have a good chance in their match against Bristol Rovers at the DW Stadium.
Charlton, meanwhile, travel away, but should also beat strugglers Gillingham.
Top pick: Notts County
Notts County are on fire in League Two, winning five of their last six to go second in the table.
Their opponents Crawley have lost six out of nine in all competitions and conceded four in the opening half-hour.
Honourable mentions: Exeter, Port Vale
Exeter scored the first goal last week and have an eminently winnable game at home to Crewe.
Port Vale, meanwhile, are playing against slow-starters Forest Green, who have conceded the division's first goal three weekends on the bounce.
