Sunday Betting Guide: Our writers' 10 best football tips
We've compiled our writers’ best football tips, including win/draw/win and BTTS, into one bite-size betting preview for Sunday's matches.
Stoke to beat Birmingham (13:30)
Birmingham have played their way into the Championship relegation battle since the restart, picking up two points in five matches.
The Blues are winless in 11 in all competitions and have lost three on the bounce, while their form has been so worrying that manager Pep Clotet’s exit – scheduled for the end of the season – was expedited in midweek.
Stoke eased their only relegation fears last Saturday as they hammered Barnsley 4-0, while Thursday's 5-0 defeat to Leeds, albeit heavy, could happen to most teams in the Championship.
Leicester to beat Bournemouth (19:00)
These are short odds, but there is plenty pointing towards an away win at the Vitality Stadium.
Second-bottom Bournemouth have earned two points in their last eight league games, losing four out of five since the restart.
Leicester came from behind to claim a 1-1 draw at Arsenal on Tuesday and have lost just one of their last six in the Premier League.
Olympiakos to beat PAOK Salonika & over 2.5 goals (19:45)
Olympiakos are 20 points clear at the top of the Greek Superleague and unbeaten after 33 league games, having won 26 and drawn seven.
They come into this having won 11 of their last 12 league games, with three or more goals having been scored in five of their last six.
PAOK have managed two victories in their last eight in all competitions and lost 2-0 to Olympiakos in the cup last month.
Tottenham v Arsenal (16:30)
The North London derby has produced some cracking games in recent years, including a 2-2 draw at the Emirates earlier this season.
Sunday’s game should be similarly high-scoring, given that Spurs have the highest BTTS percentage in the Premier League and have found the net in five consecutive home matches.
Arsenal have scored in their last six matches, including a 1-1 draw with Leicester in midweek, and have netted twice in each of their last three away trips.
Parma v Bologna (18:30)
Bologna have been the most reliable BTTS side in Serie A this season, with goals at both ends in 24 of their 34 matches so far.
That includes each of their last four games, the most recent of which was a 2-1 defeat at home to Sassuolo on Wednesday evening.
Expect more goals when they face Parma, who have both scored and conceded in all six of their matches since Serie A resumed.
Napoli v AC Milan (20:45)
Milan are coming off a stunning 4-2 over Juventus in which they came from two goals behind in the final half an hour.
The Rossoneri have now scored at least two goals in each of their last five matches, having also put four past Lecce and three past Lazio.
They now face Napoli, whose last five home league matches have all seen goals at both ends.
Cagliari not to beat Lecce (18:30)
Cagliari have won just two of their last 18 matches and one of their last seven at home.
Sunday’s hosts have failed to score in either of their last two games and rank fourth-bottom for xPoints at home in Serie A.
Lecce’s form does not make for much better reading, but they have found some form in front of goal recently. Fabio Liverani’s side have scored twice in each of their last two games, impressively beating Lazio 2-1 last time out.
Levante to win or draw v Athletic Bilbao & under 4.5 goals (16:00)
Bilbao have won two of their last 10 away game, with under 4.5 goals landing in eight of them.
They have won just 17 of their 48 points in away games this season, and take on a side in decent nick at home.
Levante have lost just one of their last seven on their own patch, a 1-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid, with under 4.5 goals landing in six of them.
Jamie Vardy (Leicester) to score v Bournemouth (19:00)
Even at a heavy odds-on price, this feels like a good bet.
Vardy has scored three goals in his last two games, and looks set to embark on another of his trademark bursts of form. He scored in eight consecutive matches between October and December, and 10 goals in nine games at this stage of last season.
He netted a brace in the reverse fixture against Bournemouth, who conceded four goals at home to Newcastle less than two weeks ago.
Lucas Ocampos (Sevilla) to score v Mallorca (21:00)
Ocampos has scored seven goals in his last 10 Sevilla home matches, including four in his last five.
He has 17 goals for the season overall, ranking sixth for shots per game and seventh for xG in the division.
Mallorca have conceded three goals in five of their last nine away games, including at Real Sociedad and Atletico Madrid.
