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.
Burton to beat Northampton (15:00)
Burton have won two of their last three matches and, despite being bottom of the league, there are plenty of reasons for them to feel positive.
Both of those victories have come since the return of Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink as manager, the most recent of which came against second-placed Hull.
Northampton sacked manager Keith Curle this week, after a run of seven defeats in 11 matches and one goal in their last six left them second-bottom.
Shrewsbury to beat Ipswich (15:00)
Shrewsbury come into this in the best shape they have been all season, having won seven of their last 10 matches.
Steve Cotterill’s side have beaten four of League One’s top five in that sequence and also came from behind to win 2-1 at home to Sunderland on Tuesday.
Ipswich lost 2-1 at Peterborough in midweek and have managed just four victories in 13.
Union Berlin to beat Schalke (17:30)
Schalke are bottom of the Bundesliga, having accrued just eight points and one match all season.
Huub Stevens’ side were beaten 3-0 by RB Leipzig last weekend and have lost five of their last six in all competitions.
Union Berlin are unbeaten in nine home games in the Bundesliga, having taken points off Borussia Monchengladbach, Leverkusen, Dortmund and Bayern Munich.
Manchester City to beat Tottenham & over 1.5 goals (17:30)
Manchester City followed their 4-1 victory over Liverpool at the weekend with a 3-1 win at Swansea in the FA Cup on Wednesday, which was their 15th in a row in all competitions.
There has been more than one goal in 12 of those victories, while City are the second-highest scorers in the Premier League with 43 goals.
Spurs were beaten 5-4 after extra time by Everton in the cup in midweek and have lost three of their last four league games.
Plymouth v Fleetwood (15:00)
Plymouth have scored in all but one of their 18 home matches this season.
Argyle have seen BTTS land in four of their last six at Home Park, including a 3-2 defeat and 2-2 draw on that run.
After a barren run, Fleetwood put three goals past Doncaster on Tuesday and can grab the goal we need here.
Sunderland v Doncaster (15:00)
Both teams have scored in four of Sunderland’s last six games at the Stadium of Light.
Lee Johnson’s side’s last four matches have ended 2-2, 0-3, 2-2 and 2-1.
Doncaster have scored in all but one of their last 20 league matches, conceding in 14 of them.
Burnley to win or draw v Crystal Palace & under 3.5 goals (15:00)
We successfully backed Burnley against Brighton in this market last week, so there is little reason not go in again for their trip to Crystal Palace.
Sean Dyche’s side have only lost five of their last 13 league matches, all of which came against teams currently in the top half. Under 3.5 goals has landed in all but one of them.
Crystal Palace are yet to score in six matches without Wilfried Zaha in the side this season and he will likely miss this game with injury. They have only won two of their last seven home games.
Kieffer Moore (Cardiff) to score v Coventry (15:00)
Moore has scored in three of Cardiff’s four matches since Mick McCarthy was appointed as manager, including in the only home game.
The striker ranks sixth for shots per game in the Championship this season, while only three players have scored more goals.
Coventry are without a clean sheet in 13 away games, conceding at least twice seven times on that run.
