Saturday Betting Guide: Our writers' best football tips
We've compiled our best football tips from Europe's top divisions, including goals and win/draw/win, into a 34/1 five-fold.
BTTS & over 2.5 goals in Mainz v Bayer Leverkusen (14:30)
Bayer Leverkusen have somehow only scored one goal in three matches, despite ranking fourth for xG in the Bundesliga.
They take on Mainz, who rank fifth in the same metric, and who have been involved in two 2-1s from their three games so far this term.
Both teams will surely flex their muscles soon and a repeat of last season’s 3-2 in this fixture would do us nicely.
Crystal Palace to score v Man City (15:00)
Crystal Palace are traditionally a bogey team for Man City, having lost just four of their last nine matches against the champions.
Palace have scored on three of their last four visits to the Etihad, including in 3-2 and 2-0 victories and a 2-2 draw.
Patrick Vieira’s side have the weapons on the counter-attack to hurt City, who were playing a charity game in Barcelona on Wednesday.
Brentford to beat Everton (15:00)
Brentford beat Man Utd 4-0 in their only home match so far and can back it up with another three points here.
Only Arsenal and Man City have scored more goals in the Premier League so far and another couple should be enough to see off Everton.
The Toffees have only managed two goals from three matches, don’t have a single suitable centre-forward, and could be without Anthony Gordon as he nears a move to Chelsea. They were also the joint-worst away team in the Premier League last season.
BTTS & over 2.5 goals in Brighton v Leeds (15:00)
Both of these sides rank in the Premier League’s top seven in xGF, indicating that they are both creating decent opportunities.
This bet has landed in three of Leeds’ four matches in all competitions this season, while they have scored at least twice in all four.
Brighton have netted four league goals in three games, so should also do their bit.
BTTS & over 2.5 goals in Auxerre v Strasbourg (16:00)
This bet has landed in all three of Auxerre’s Ligue 1 games so far.
Jean-Marc Furlan’s side have seen four goals scored per game this season – the second-highest ratio in the division behind PSG.
BTTS has also landed in all three of Strasbourg’s games, so this should be an entertaining encounter.
