Thursday Betting Guide: Our writers' 5 best football tips
We've compiled our writers’ best football tips, including win/draw/win and BTTS, into one bite-size betting preview for Thursday's matches.
BTTS in Leeds v Stoke (17:00)
BTTS has landed in back-to-back games for Leeds, after they conceded against both Blackburn and bottom-of-the-league Luton.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side have only once failed to score in their last 10 league games and average more shots per game (16.4) than any other Championship side.
Stoke drew 2-2 with Leeds in the EFL Cup when these sides last met in August and stuck four past Barnsley last time out.
Tottenham to beat Bournemouth (18:00)
Second-bottom Bournemouth are in a bad way, having picked up one point in their last eight matches.
The Cherries have lost all four of their games since the restart and were thumped 5-2 at Manchester United last Saturday.
Spurs have taken seven points from an available 12 since football got back under way, including victories over Everton and West Ham in their last three.
Under 2.5 goals in SPAL v Udinese (18:30)
This is a game between the two lowest scorers in Serie A.
SPAL have managed just 23 goals so far this term, while Udinese are on 27.
There have been fewer than three goals in seven of Udinese’s last eight away games in the league, while SPAL haven’t scored more than twice in any of their 14 matches at home this season.
Midtjylland to beat Copenhagen (19:00)
Midtjylland are top of the Danish Superligaen and come into this on the back of eight victories from their last 11 matches.
Included in that sequence is a 2-1 victory away to Copenhagen last month, while they have taken seven points from their three games against them this season.
Copenhagen have managed just one victory from their last eight domestic away games.
Lautaro Martinez (Inter) to score v Hellas Verona (20:45)
Martinez averages four shots per game in Serie A – the most in the division behind Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Argentine has scored 17 goals in 37 appearances in all competitions for Inter this season and ranks fifth for xG in the league.
Verona haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last six matches – a run that includes every game since the restart – which suggests that Inter should have plenty of chances to get on the scoresheet.
