4 To Score: These picks could win you £25k on New Year’s Day

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.


Top pick: Newcastle

With just three fixtures to choose from, I’m reverting back to the old formula of backing the away side in a clash between two bottom-half sides, which has comfortably produced the most Premier League 4 To Score winners so far this season.

Stoke conceded after three and nine minutes at Chelsea last time out, while Newcastle netted inside the opening 10 minutes of their last Premier League away game, away at West Ham.

– Tom Bowles


Top pick: Bristol City

Bristol City have scored first in 15 of their 25 games this season – more than all but three other Championship sides.

They’re worth backing to get on the scoresheet early and often against a Villa side that conceded after just 12 minutes in their last home game.

Honourable mention: Leeds

Leeds failed to score against Birmingham last time out but should find the net against Forest, who have a knack of letting in early goals.

The Reds have let in nine in the first 15 minutes of games this season – the most in the division – and have been the 4 To Score losers on three occasions.

– Jack Green


Top pick: Bradford

Bradford took just two minutes to take the lead on Saturday, meaning they’ve now scored more than any other side in the first 15 minutes of matches.

They’ve also got the best away record in the division so, away to Fleetwood – who were 2-0 down inside a quarter of an hour the last time they played at home – the Bantams are a solid pick.

Honourable mentions: AFC Wimbledon, Plymouth

Southend have conceded more goals away from home than any other side, so AFC Wimbledon – who scored twice late on against Gillingham on Saturday – are worth considering.

Finally, Plymouth have been 4 To Score winners twice in the last couple of months, so keep an eye on them at home to Walsall, who fell behind after just one minute two days ago.

Top pick: Accrington

Morecambe are officially the slowest starters in the fourth tier, having shipped 14 goals in the opening half hour of matches.
They have also lost three out of four abd conceded in the first minute last time out.

Accrington have  netted six inside the first 15 minutes, and look a good bet to bag early again.

Honourable mentions: Grimsby, Wycombe

Crewe have conceded nine times in the opening quarter of an hour.

The Railwaymen have also lost five out of eight and face Grimsby, who have bagged six inside the opening 15 minutes.

Wycombe have won five of their last eight and take on out-of-form Forest Green.

Mark Cooper’s side have lost three on the spin and conceded nine in the opening 15 minutes of matches.
