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.
Union Berlin to beat Werder Bremen (14:30)
Union Berlin are one of just four sides in the Bundesliga with one home defeat or fewer this season, having gone unbeaten since the opening day.
Urs Fischer’s side beat Stuttgart 2-1 last time out at the Stadion An der Alten Forsterei and have taken seven points from their last three games there.
Werder Bremen have lost six league games on the bounce and are in danger of dropping into the league’s relegation play-off spot.
Birmingham to beat Derby (15:00)
Derby have played themselves into serious trouble following a run of one victory in their last 12 matches.
Wayne Rooney’s side have lost four straight games, including a 3-0 defeat at Preston on Tuesday.
Birmingham are unbeaten in five and have taken four points from their last two on the road.
Watford to beat Milwall (15:00)
Watford will be promoted back to the Premier League with three points on Saturday and, having won 12 of their last 15 matches, they are worth backing to do so.
The Hornets beat likely champions Norwich 1-0 in midweek to open up an eight-point gap to third-place.
Millwall have nothing to play for and have picked up one point from their last three matches, which were all against the sides positioned third to fifth.
Cambridge to beat Stevenage (15:00)
Cambridge will be promoted to League One should results go their way this weekend.
Mark Bonner’s side have won back-to-back games against play-off hopefuls Leyton Orient and Newport.
Stevenage have lost three straight games and have nothing to play for.
Brighton to beat Sheffield United (20:00)
Sheffield United’s 1-0 loss at Wolves last week was their ninth league defeat in 10 matches and fifth in a row.
The Blades have already been relegated, so have nothing to play for and, given Brighton’s positive performance data, another defeat looks likely.
Graham Potter’s side rank fifth in the Premier League for xPTS and ninth for xG, while they have only lost once in five.
Coventry v Preston (15:00)
With just three games remaining for most teams, we should begin to see some exciting shoot-outs between those with nothing to play for.
Coventry, who are all but safe from relegation, could be involved in one or two. They won 3-2 at Stoke on Wednesday and have scored in five of their last six home games.
Preston beat Derby 3-0 on Tuesday and are capable of cutting loose again in an open game.
Oldham v Grimsby (15:00)
Oldham have scored at least three goals in all of their last four games, including 4-1, 5-2 and 4-3 wins.
BTTS has landed in 67 per cent of the Latics’ matches, a high for League Two.
Grimsby have scored in four of their last five games and must win here to realistically keep their chances of survival alive.
Parma v Crotone (17:00)
BTTS has landed in Parma’s last five games, with those results reading 2-1, 2-2, 3-1, 4-3 and 3-1.
They play Crotone, who have seen goals at both ends in all but one of their last eight, including some more huge scorelines.
The reverse fixture between these sides finished 2-1 in December.
Sheffield Wednesday to win or draw v Middlesbrough & under 3.5 goals (15:00)
Middlesbrough were without a win in five before squeaking past 10-man Rotherham on Wednesday evening.
Under 3.5 goals landed in all of those five matches and should do so again when Sheffield Wednesday visit.
The Owls have lost just three of their last eight matches, and have plenty to play for with survival still a possibility.
Callum Lang (Wigan) to score v Burton (15:00)
Lang has inspired a run of form for Wigan that should see them survive relegation from League One.
The forward has scored nine goals in 20 appearances since returning from a loan spell at Motherwell in January, including two in his last three. He ranks ninth for shots per game in League One.
Burton have kept just two clean sheets in nine and have nothing to play for here.
