Saturday Betting Guide: Our writers' best football tips
We've compiled our writers’ best football tips, including win/draw/win and BTTS, into one bite-size betting preview.
Nottingham Forest to beat Bristol City (15:00)
Bristol City come into this on the back of three straight defeats, including against relegation candidates Rotherham and Coventry.
The Robins have lost 12 of their last 16 matches in all competitions, including seven straight losses at Ashton Gate.
Nottingham Forest have taken seven points from their last three, while they have only been beaten by promotion-chasing Watford and Swansea in their last 11 on the road.
Blackpool to beat Lincoln (15:00)
This is a massive price for the form team in League One.
Blackpool are unbeaten in 13 matches, while no side in the division have taken more points (14) in the last six.
That run has seen them climb to fifth, overtaking a Lincoln side whose own play-off push is flagging following a five-game winless run, including back-to-back home defeats.
Bolton to beat Harrogate (15:00)
Bolton’s automatic promotion hopes took a hit following a 1-0 defeat to Newport on Easter Monday, but their previous sequence of 11 victories in a 14-match unbeaten run suggests they can make amends here.
Ian Evatt’s have only dropped six points in their last nine home games and host a side with little to play for on Saturday.
Harrogate have taken one point in their last five matches, coming against relegation-threatened Walsall.
Athletic Bilbao to beat Alaves (15:15)
Athletic Bilbao have lost just three of their last 19 matches in all competitions.
Marcelino’s side have found victories hard to come by during that sequence, winning just six times, but can surely notch another here.
Bottom-of-the-league Alaves have picked up one point in their last six league games and have lost six of their last seven away games in all competitions.
Paris Saint-Germain to beat Strasbourg (16:00)
This isn’t the most imaginative tip, but Paris Saint-Germain are rarely available at a price this long in domestic games so it’s worth getting on them when they are.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side won 3-2 away to Bayern Munich in midweek and have managed four straight away victories in Ligue 1.
Strasbourg have lost two of their last three games and were thumped 4-0 in the reverse fixture in December.
Derby v Norwich (15:00)
Norwich are by far the best attacking team in the Championship, a point they reinforced by hammering Huddersfield 7-0 on Tuesday.
The Canaries have scored in 12 consecutive matches, but have only kept five clean sheets in 20 away from home.
Derby have scored in seven of their last eight home games, with BTTS landing in recent games against Watford, Brentford and Reading.
Lincoln v Blackpool (15:00)
Lincoln have scored in nine of their last 11 home games, with BTTS landing in seven of them.
The Imps take on Blackpool, who have scored and conceded in three of their last four.
Neil Critchley’s side have scored eight goals in their last four away games.
Plymouth v Hull (15:00)
Plymouth have scored in 10 of their last 12 home matches.
The Pilgrims have also conceded at least twice in four of their last seven at Home Park.
Hull have scored in their last nine games, netting at least twice in seven of them. BTTS has landed in all of their last three on the road.
Wycombe to win or draw v Luton & under 3.5 goals (15:00)
Wycombe have given themselves a slim chance of Championship survival by taking seven points from their last three games, keeping clean sheets in each.
The Chairboys have only lost to top-six sides Norwich and Barnsley in their last five at Adams Park, while beating Reading, Preston and Blackburn 1-0.
Luton have nothing left to play for this season, as evidenced by them losing four of their last six. All of those defeats featured fewer than four goals.
Raheem Sterling (Man City) to score v Leeds (12:30)
Sterling should be guaranteed a spot in Man City’s team for this game having not started last Saturday’s game at Leicester or Tuesday’s Champions League win over Borussia Dortmund.
Despite having had a quiet season in front of goal, he still ranks top for xG and third for shots per game in Pep Guardiola’s squad.
He should benefit from an open match against Leeds, who have conceded an average of four goals per game against Big Six opposition this season.
