RB Leipzig to beat Werder Bremen & BTTS (14:30)
RB Leipzig have the best home record in the Bundesliga, having won five out of five.
BTTS has landed in each of their last four matches in all competitions, and in nine of Werder Bremen’s last 10.
Bremen are currently on a seven-match winless run and have lost back-to-back games.
Accrington to beat Wigan (15:00)
Wigan are bottom of League One, having lost eight of their last 11 league games.
The managerless Latics have taken five points from seven games at the DW Stadium this season, the second-fewest in the division.
Accrington have taken 23 points from their last 10 league games, more than any other side in the league.
Oldham to beat Bradford (15:00)
Bradford have lost six and drawn one of their last seven matches, including two cup defeats to Oldham.
The Bantams have the worst away record in League Two, having taken just four points from their travels.
Oldham have won seven of their last 10 games in all competitions.
Scunthorpe to beat Southend (15:00)
Scunthorpe have won four and drawn one of their last seven matches, a run that has seen them earn 13 of their 17 points so far this season.
The Iron come into this having three straight away games, so they look a good price to make it four.
Bottom-of-the-league Southend have accrued six points in 15 matches, with just one of those coming at Roots Hall.
Atletico Madrid to beat Real Madrid (20:00)
Atletico Madrid are one point clear at the top of La Liga and have won seven league games on the bounce.
Diego Simeone’s side have dropped just four points in an unbeaten campaign so far, while they have gone 11 without defeat in all competitions.
Real Madrid have won one and lost two of their last four league games, including a 4-1 defeat away to Valencia last month.
BTTS & over 2.5 goals in Blackburn v Norwich (15:00)
This bet has landed in four of Blackburn’s last five matches, including all of their last three.
Adam Armstrong alone has scored six goals in his last four matches at Ewood Park.
Norwich are three points clear at the top of the Championship having scored in their last seven matches. They have also conceded in all of their last five.
BTTS in Luton v Preston (15:00)
Luton have scored and conceded in four of their last five home games, with the only exception a 3-0 home defeat to Brentford.
They beat league leaders Norwich 3-1 last time out at Kenilworth Road.
Preston have scored at least twice in seven of their nine away games this season, with BTTS landing in all of the last three.
BTTS in Salford v Cheltenham (15:00)
Salford have scored at least twice in eight of their last nine home games, with the exception a 1-1 draw.
They take on Cheltenham, who have scored in all 10 of their away games this term, with BTTS landing in all of the last four.
Assuming neither of those terrific runs come to an end, this bet will land.
Birmingham to win or draw v Watford & under 3.5 goals (15:00)
Watford are a very short price to win this match considering that they’ve won just one of their eight league away games this season – a 1-0 victory at 22nd-place Derby.
The Hornets have dropped points at bottom-half sides Sheffield Wednesday, Wycombe, Barnsley, QPR and Nottingham Forest this season, with under 3.5 goals landing in all of them.
Birmingham have won their last two matches 1-0 and 2-1.
Bruno Fernandes (Man Utd) to score v Man City (17:30)
This is a massive price for a player in such good form to find the net.
Fernandes has scored in nine of 17 appearances for Manchester United this season, including in four of his last six.
Man City have given away penalties in games against fellow top teams Leicester and Liverpool so far this season, and another of those would be enough to give the Portuguese international a great chance.
