West Ham to beat Crystal Palace (15:00) {ODDS:777603728:4/7}

West Ham have made a flying start to the Premier League season with two wins out of two.

The Hammers thrashed Leicester 4-1 on Monday and can follow that with another three points against faltering opposition.

Crystal Palace are yet to score in their two defeats and one draw in all competitions under Patrick Vieira.

Sheffield Wednesday to beat Morecambe (15:00) {ODDS:781253011:19/20}

Sheffield Wednesday are top of League One and have won three on the spin.

The Owls are one of two sides in the division yet to concede a goal and arrive at the Globe Arena on the back of a 2-0 victory over Rotherham.

Morecambe have lost three consecutive games in all competitions, including back-to-back matches in League One.

Forest Green to beat Port Vale (15:00) {ODDS:781290753:11/10}

Forest Green are top of League Two and are the only side in the division with a 100 per cent record after four games.

Rob Edwards’ side were beaten 3-1 by Premier League Brentford in the cup in midweek, but did go in ahead at half-time.

They hammered Crawley 6-3 last weekend and should take another three points against winless Port Vale.

Bradford to beat Leyton Orient (15:00) {ODDS:781293833:7/5}

Bradford City are second in League Two after they followed a 0-0 draw on opening day at Exeter with three straight wins.

The Bantams came from behind to beat fellow promotion contenders Mansfield 3-2 on the road last weekend and are now favourites for the title.

Leyton Orient lost 2-0 at home to Harrogate in midweek and have won one game out of five in all competitions this season.

West Brom to beat Peterborough (20:00) {ODDS:779511946:3/4}

West Brom are second in the Championship, only behind leaders Fulham on goal difference, after collecting 10 points from four matches.

The Baggies have won three in a row and can make it four against a side still settling in a new division.

Peterborough were beaten 1-0 last weekend away to a Preston side that had lost three out of three.


QPR v Coventry (15:00) {ODDS:779511482:4/5}

QPR have scored at least twice in four consecutive matches, including 3-2 and 2-2 scorelines in their last two league games.

They take on Coventry, who have scored in all but one of their five matches so far this season.

These teams both rank in the top 10 for xG from open play so far this season.

Ipswich v AFC Wimbledon (15:00) {ODDS:781251801:4/5}

BTTS has landed in all four of Ipswich’s league games so far this season, with both matches at Portman Road finishing 2-2.

Paul Cook’s side have conceded two goals in all four of their League One games.

AFC Wimbledon have scored in five of their six matches so far this term, including away at Doncaster and Charlton.

BTTS & over 2.5 goals in Atalanta v Bologna (17:30) {ODDS:783167999:7/8}

Atalanta began their Serie A campaign with a 2-1 win at Torino, meaning they have scored at least twice in four of their last five league games.

They take on Bologna, whose two games so far this season have finished in 5-4 and 3-2 victories.

This bet has landed in their last four matches overall.


Raheem Sterling (Man City) to score v Arsenal (12:30) {ODDS:781729684:13/10}

Sterling scored off the bench for Man City against Norwich last weekend and should be restored to the starting line-up here.

He is the master of finding space inside the penalty box for a tap-in, just as Romelu Lukaku did against Arsenal last weekend.

The Gunners will struggle to prevent City firing more crosses across the six-yard box here, and conceded to Sterling last season.

Matt Phillips (West Brom) to score v Peterborough (20:00) {ODDS:782514379:2/1}

Phillips started and scored from a central striker position last weekend, so is a nice bet to hit the net for in-form West Brom again.

The 30-year-old had four shots in that game, benefitting from West Brom’s extraordinary direct, attacking approach.

Peterborough have conceded 11 goals in six matches so far this season.
