We've compiled our writers’ best football tips, including win/draw/win and BTTS, into one bite-size betting preview.
Manchester City to beat Sheffield United to nil (12:30)
Despite Manchester City’s inconsistent start to the season, they have still won six games out of nine and only actually lost one.
City have won four of their six matches since losing 5-2 to Leicester, including a 3-0 victory away to Marseille in the Champions League on Tuesday.
Sheffield United have picked up one point in six league games and scored only three goals, two of which were penalties.
Bayern Munich to beat Cologne & over 3.5 goals (14:30)
Bayern have won four of their opening five matches in the Bundesliga this season, and 17 of their last 18 overall.
Hansi Flick’s side have seen five or more goals scored in all of their league games so far.
Cologne are without a win this term, picking up two points in five matches.
Millwall to beat Huddersfield (15:00)
Millwall went third in the Championship on Wednesday as they beat Preston 2-0 away from home.
Gary Rowett’s side have only dropped two points in their last four league games.
Huddersfield made it back-to-back 2-1 defeats in midweek, having lost to both Birmingham and Preston in the space of five days.
Hull to beat Swindon (15:00)
Swindon were beaten 2-1 by early-season relegation candidates Northampton on Tuesday, dropping to third-bottom in the table as a result.
Richie Wellens’ side have lost each of their last five games in all competitions and eight out of 10 overall.
Second-placed Hull have won seven of their nine league games and come into this having beaten Bristol Rovers 3-1 away on Tuesday.
Port Vale to beat Southend (15:00)
This is a predictable leg to any EFL acca at the moment, but one that should come in with little drama.
Bottom-of-the-league Southend lost 2-1 to fellow strugglers Oldham in midweek and have picked up two points in their opening nine league games.
Port Vale climbed into the play-off positions following a 2-1 victory at home to in-form Cheltenham on Tuesday, which was their third win in four matches.
Stoke v Rotherham (15:00)
Stoke’s last three home matches have finished 1-1, 2-2 and 3-2.
Michael O’Neill’s side have scored in seven of their last eight matches overall, conceding twice in all of their last three games.
Rotherham beat Sheffield Wednesday 3-0 in midweek, having scored and conceded in four of their previous five.
Swansea v Blackburn (15:00)
BTTS had landed in four consecutive Swansea matches prior to Tuesday’s 2-0 win against Stoke.
That run should pick up again for the visit of Blackburn, who are the most entertaining team in the division.
Rovers’ last three matches have featured at least four goals, with Tuesday’s 4-2 defeat to Reading the best of the lot.
Burton v Blackpool (15:00)
There have been goals at both ends in all but one of Burton’s seven home matches this season, including two 4-2 defeats.
Jake Buxton’s side also drew 2-2 at Peterborough in their last outing.
Blackpool have faltered in front of goal recently, but still rank fourth for shots per League One away game. They will surely score in this one.
Wycombe to win or draw v Sheffield Wednesday & under 4.5 goals (15:00)
Wycombe are quickly improving in the Championship.
A 1-1 draw with Watford on Tuesday was the least of what they deserved from that match, while they also fared well in one-goal defeats to Millwall, Norwich and Reading previously.
They take on Sheffield Wednesday, who have lost their last three matches, including a 3-0 defeat at Rotherham in midweek. Wednesday remain bottom of the league on minus four points.
James Vaughan (Tranmere) to score v Morecambe (15:00)
Vaughan has scored in four of Tranmere’s five home matches this season, including two braces and one goal against Southend last weekend.
The striker ranks sixth for shots and second for shots inside the box per League Two match this season.
Morecambe have lost their last two away games 4-0 and 3-1, so are bound to give up chances to the player who, at 32, remains the Premier League’s youngest ever goalscorer.
