We've compiled our writers’ best football tips, including win/draw/win and BTTS, into one bite-size betting preview.
Gillingham to beat MK Dons (13:00)
Gillingham are fourth in League One after taking 10 points from their four league games since a defeat to Hull on the opening day.
Steve Evans’ side beat pre-season promotion candidates Oxford 3-1 last weekend and this looks like a generous price for one of the division’s form sides.
MK Dons are bottom of the league and are one of two teams in League One without a victory, having taken only two points from five matches.
Bristol City to beat Barnsley (15:00)
Bristol City are one of just two sides with a 100 per cent winning record in the entire EFL.
The Robins have won six of their seven games in all competitions, with their only defeat coming against in-form Premier League side Aston Villa in the EFL Cup third round.
Barnsley have lost three and drawn one of their last four, while they must also cope with the loss of manager Gerhard Struber, who has joined New York Red Bulls since their last game.
Millwall to beat Wycombe (15:00)
Wycombe are still looking for their first point and goal of the season after four games in the Championship.
The Chairboys are second-bottom of the division – above only Sheffield Wednesday, who are on -7 points – after conceding 10 goals without reply.
Millwall haven’t had the best start, taking only five points so far, but have a great opportunity to put that right here.
Cambridge to beat Scunthorpe (15:00)
Cambridge beat fellow fast starters Newport 2-1 last weekend to leapfrog them into second place in League Two.
The U’s have won three of their five away games in all competitions this season, including a 5-0 victory over league leaders Morecambe and a 1-0 win against Championship side Birmingham in the EFL Cup first round.
Scunthorpe were thumped 4-1 at home to Forest Green last weekend and have lost four of their last five matches in all competitions.
Manchester City to beat Arsenal & over 2.5 goals (17:30)
Manchester City have got a great record against Arsenal, winning eight of their 11 meetings in all competitions since Pep Guardiola took over in 2016.
City have also won three of their five games in all competitions this season, with all but one of those games passing the over 2.5 mark.
Arsenal have the worst record among the Big Six since 2016, losing 21 of their 40 league games.
Bournemouth v QPR (15:00)
BTTS has landed in three of Bournemouth’s four Championship matches so far this season.
Two of those games have finished 3-2 and 3-1, while the Cherries rank fifth for shots per Championship game so far this season.
QPR have scored and conceded in all of their three away games so far this season.
Crewe v Blackpool (15:00)
Crewe have won their last two home matches 2-0 and 3-0.
Extending that form should see them score in this game, but they will do well to keep a clean sheet against Blackpool.
The Tangerines’ last three matches have finished 2-3, 1-1 and 1-4.
Rochdale v Hull (15:00)
BTTS has landed in both of Rochdale’s last two matches, a 2-1 win and 2-1 defeat.
Dale rank eighth for shots per League One game so far this season and take on the team one place above them in that metric on Saturday.

Accrington to win or draw v Ipswich (15:00)
Accrington have made a fine start to the season, winning three of their five matches, including both of the last two.
That run includes a victory at AFC Wimbledon in their last away game, while they rank above Ipswich for shots per game.
The Tractor Boys won 4-1 at Blackpool despite posting an xG of just 0.8 last week (experimental361) and were held 1-1 at MK Dons in a tepid display the week before.
Ivan Toney (Brentford) to score v Coventry (15:00)
Toney is off and running for Brentford after scoring three goals in his last two games, including a brace last time out at home to Preston.
The forward, who scored 24 goals in League One last season, has already settled into the top 20 for shots per game this season, and will likely keep moving up.
