Sunday Betting Guide: Our writers' 5 best football tips
We've compiled our best football tips, including win/draw/win and BTTS, into one bite-size betting preview for Sunday's matches.
Vangelis Pavlidis (AZ Alkmaar) to score v Sparta Rotterdam (15:45)
Pavlidis provided us with a winner last week, so we’re backing him again at even longer odds.
The Greek forward had six shots in that game against Go Ahead Eagles, having ranked 12th for shots per game last season in the Eredivisie.
He scored 25 goals for club and country last term.
BTTS in Nice v Racing Strasbourg (16:05)
Nice drew 1-1 at Toulouse last weekend, their fourth consecutive Ligue 1 match that has seen both teams score.
They host Racing Strasbourg, who created plenty in their 2-1 defeat to Monaco last week.
Racing ranked fifth for xG in Ligue 1 last season, including scoring three goals in this fixture.
Under 2.5 goals in Chelsea v Tottenham (16:30)
Eight of the last 10 matches between these sides have produced under 2.5 goals, including three of the four meetings last season.
Chelsea have faced Spurs five times under Thomas Tuchel and are yet to concede a single goal.
The Blues won 1-0 at Everton last week, while Tottenham will likely be happy to play out a risk-free, cagey game here.
Bayern Munich (-2) to beat Wolfsburg (16:30)
Bayern hammered Eintracht Frankfurt 6-1 in their first Bundesliga game of the season last week, a match that they were leading 5-0 at half-time.
Having beaten RB Leipzig 5-3 in the Super Cup a week earlier, it’s been an ominously good start to the season by Julian Nagelsmann’s side.
Wolfsburg were beaten 4-0 in this fixture last season.
Real Madrid to beat Almeria & under 4.5 goals (21:00)
Under 4.5 goals landed in 15 of Real Madrid’s 19 league away games last season.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side won 13 of their 19 on the road across the campaign, so a low-scoring victory at Almeria looks like a solid bet on opening weekend.
