Sunday Betting Guide: Our writers’ 5 best football tips 09 01 21

We've compiled our best football tips, including win/draw/win and anytime goalscorers, into one bite-size betting preview for Sunday's matches.

Adam Drury provides his football tips from Sunday’s action in the FA Cup and across Europe.

BTTS & over 2.5 goals in Empoli v Sassuolo (11:30) {ODDS:859922568:13/20}

This has landed in 11 of Empoli’s last 14 matches, including 4-3, 4-2 and 3-3 scorelines.

They host Sassuolo, for whom this bet has been a winner in 12 of their last 14.

The reverse fixture between these sides finished 2-1 in October.

Over 2.5 goals in Cagliari v Bologna (13:30) {ODDS:855195753:17/20}

Cagliari games have featured an average of three goals this season, with Bologna matches up at 3.05.

The hosts have seen this mark passed in five of their last seven on home soil.

Six of Bologna’s last eight on the road have also passed this mark.

Over 2.5 goals in West Ham v Leeds (14:00) {ODDS:855431247:3/4}

West Ham’s last four matches have featured over 2.5 goals, with their last three finishing 3-2, 4-1 and 3-2.

The Hammers have scored the fourth-most goals in the Premier League but are in the bottom half for goals against. There is no reason why that shouldn’t translate to a cup tie.

Leeds’ last five matches have finished 2-2, 3-2, 7-0, 4-1 and 3-1.

Over 2.5 goals in Metz v Strasbourg (14:00) {ODDS:851254264:1/1}

Six of Metz’s last seven home games have featured over 2.5 goals, with the last three ending 3-3, 3-1 and 4-1.

They host Strasbourg, who have scored the third-most goals in Ligue 1 this season.

The visitors won September’s reverse fixture 3-0 and a repeat would do us nicely here.

BTTS in Nottingham Forest v Arsenal (17:10) {ODDS:855431509:4/5}

Arsenal have only failed to score against Liverpool in their last 15 games, netting 15 goals in their last four.

And while a Gunners goal is to be expected, Nottingham Forest, who won this fixture 4-1 in 2018, can net themselves.

Steve Cooper’s side have netted in six of their last nine home games, with Brennan Johnson a notable threat in attack. Arsenal’s defence is likely to be rotated, which should give them an even greater opportunity.
