Top pick: Newcastle
With the way they’re playing at the moment, Manchester City are going to be a hugely popular selection this week, so it’s to look elsewhere if you’re hoping to bag the sole share of the £25k prize.
Newcastle – twice 4ToScore winners this season – are a nice option against a Crystal Palace side that have conceded inside the sixth minute on three occasions.
The Eagles have let in 11 goals away from home this season without reply, while Newcastle have bagged six in their last three at St James’ Park.
Honourable mentions: Man City, Stoke
City, as mentioned above, are the obvious choice given that they’re averaging over three goals per game at home and have netted five or more on three occasions.
Stoke are also a decent shout against a Bournemouth side that have conceded seven goals in four away games.
Top pick: Wolves
Nuno Santo’s side have scored six goals without reply in their last two matches, and are a good bet to do similar damage to Preston.
Nobody has scored more goals than forward Diogo Jota in the division, and he could be the man to inspire a quick start at Molineux.
Honourable mentions: Brentford, Derby County
Brentford have scored seven goals in their last four games, and play Sunderland, who have not yet kept a clean sheet in the Championship.
Derby, meanwhile, could be worth backing, after Matej Vydra scored inside 30 seconds against Nottingham Forest on Sunday.
Top pick: Bradford
Bradford have been League One’s most prolific side in the opening 45 minutes of matches, netting 19.
The Bantams have bagged within the opening 11 minutes in each of their last three games and scooped the 4ToScore prize two weeks ago.
They host a Charlton side with just one clean sheet in nine, so can expect to breach the Addicks’ defence.
Honourable mentions: Shrewsbury, Oldham
League leaders Shrewsbury hit Bristol Rovers for four in midweek and face Fleetwood, who have conceded 15 goals in seven.
Oldham have won four and drawn one of their five matches under new manager Richie Wellens and are also worth considering.
Top pick: Luton
Luton have scored 11 goals in two matches during the space of the last week, three of which came in the first 10 minutes.
Away to struggling Crawley, the Hatters’ blistering form could see them score the division’s first goal for the second weekend in a row.
Honourable mentions: Grimsby, Accrington
The last seven teams to concede the weekend’s first goal in League Two had lost their previous game, five of whom were playing a side at least nine places higher than them in the table.
Morecambe are the only side other than Crawley to fit that profile, so Grimsby – who put three past Cheltenham in midweek – are definitely worth considering.
Accrington are also the division’s fastest starters having scored six and conceded none during the first 20 minutes of matches.
That record could easily improve against a Crewe team that have conceded the earliest goal on three of the last five weekends.
