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.
Plymouth to beat Burton (15:00)
Third-placed Plymouth come into this on a 10-match unbeaten run in the league.
Ryan Lowe’s side have won three and drawn three at Home Park this season and look a good price to get another three points.
Burton are without a win in four away games and have scored one goal during that sequence.
Harrogate to beat Scunthorpe (15:00)
Scunthorpe are bottom of the EFL and have lost four of their last five matches.
The Iron have failed to score in any of those defeats and were beaten 3-0 at Newport last weekend.
Second-placed Harrogate ended a four-match winless run with a 2-1 victory over second-bottom Oldham last Saturday, and can make it two from two here.
Port Vale to beat Sutton (15:00)
Port Vale are top of the League Two form table after winning five of their last six matches.
Darrell Clarke’s side are third in the table and have beaten top two Forest Green and Harrogate as part of that run.
Sutton are in decent form themselves with four victories from six, but this price is too tempting to ignore.
Halifax to beat Weymouth (15:00)
Halifax beat Notts County 3-2 on Tuesday evening, despite being two goals and a man down with 11 minutes to go.
Pete Wild’s side are unbeaten in six and have won four straight games at The Shay.
Weymouth are winless in six and have lost three straight away games.
Ipswich v Shrewsbury (15:00)
BTTS has landed in five of Ipswich’s six home league games this season, with the only exception a 6-0 victory.
Four of those matches have finished 2-2 (three times) and 5-2.
Shrewsbury have scored and conceded in their last six games.
Bristol Rovers v Carlisle (15:00)
BTTS has landed in all of Bristol Rovers’ last three matches.
There have also been goals at both ends in five of Carlisle’s last seven League Two games.
Only three teams in the division have seen BTTS land more often than these two this season.
Azerbaijan to win or draw v Republic Of Ireland & under 3.5 goals (17:00)
Republic Of Ireland are in awful form, winning just one of their last 17 matches.
That sequence includes 10 consecutive failures to win a qualifying match.
Azerbaijan have only lost seven of their last 17 home matches, including avoiding defeat against Croatia on that run.
Macauley Bonne (Ipswich) to score v Shrewsbury
Bonne has scored eight goals this season, including seven in his last six games.
He ranks top in League One for xG per 90 minutes and leads the line for an Ipswich side that had scored nine goals in five home league games even before a 6-0 win over Doncaster last time out.
Shrewsbury are without a clean sheet in the league so far this season.
Eran Zahavi (Israel) to score v Scotland (17:00)
Zahavi has scored 12 goals this season, including five goals in three games for Israel in the last international break.
The PSV forward has scored seven goals in his last six internationals, and 15 in his last 20.
His phenomenal record means that a price not far short of 2/1 is very appealing.
