We've compiled our writers’ best football tips, including win/draw/win and BTTS, into one bite-size betting preview.
Union Berlin to beat Wolfsburg (14:30)
Union Berlin have won three straight matches in all competitions, including a 2-1 victory over Mainz last time out in the Bundesliga.
Urs Fischer’s side are unbeaten after four matches at home in the league and represent great value here.
Wolfsburg are currently on a five-match winless run in all competitions, including back-to-back defeats in the league.
Brighton to Norwich (15:00)
Brighton are sixth in the Premier League, having won four and drawn two of their opening six games.
Graham Potter’s side have taken seven points from their three away games, while they have also earned four from matches against Arsenal and Leicester.
Norwich are bottom of the table with one point after seven matches.
Reading to beat Barnsley (15:00)
Reading come into this on the back of four victories in their last five league games, including a 2-1 defeat of promotion contenders Fulham last month.
The Royals have won back-to-back games at the Madejski Stadium against struggling Middlesbrough and Peterborough, and should add another three points against out-of-form opposition.
Third-bottom Barnsley are on a nine-match winless run, having lost three on the spin, while they are one of three Championship sides without a victory on the road.
Tranmere to beat Carlisle (15:00)
Tranmere’s 2-0 victory away to Colchester last Friday was their third in a row in all competitions and fifth in six matches.
Micky Mellon’s side also have the meanest defence in League Two, having conceded just four goals in 11 matches.
Third-bottom Carlisle sacked manager Chris Beech in midweek following a run of four league defeats in five matches, the latter three without scoring.
Forest Green to beat Scunthorpe (15:00)
Bottom-of-the-league Scunthorpe are in a sorry state and were thumped 6-1 away to Harrogate last weekend.
That was the Iron’s fourth straight defeat in all competitions and seventh match without victory.
The visit of table toppers Forest Green is unlikely to provide any relief, given that they have won four and drawn one of their five away games in the league.

Doncaster have scored in four of their last five league matches, three of which finished 2-1.
They play Wycombe, who have also netted in four of their last five league outings.

Lyon have scored three goals in four of their last five home matches, including a 3-3 and two 3-1s.
Both teams have scored in all of their last five matches, while they rank fifth for xG and seventh-bottom for xG against.
This bet has landed in four of Monaco’s last five away matches, with the only exception a 1-1 draw at Real Sociedad in the Europa League.
Leicester to win or draw v Man Utd & BTTS (15:00)
Leicester have made a dodgy start to the season, but have only been beaten by Man City in four games at the King Power Stadium.
Their last two league matches have finished 2-2, while Manchester United have only won one of their last four games.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are without both of their first-choice central defenders, Harry Maguire and Rapahael Varane.
