Wednesday Betting Guide: Our writers' 5 best football tips
We've compiled our best football tips into one bite-size betting preview for Wednesday's matches in the EFL and Champions League. You can back the 52/1 five-fold.
Cardiff to win or draw v Derby & under 2.5 goals (19:45)
Derby have won just one of their opening seven league games this season and are currently third-bottom of the Championship.
The Rams were held to a point against out-of-form Nottingham Forest on Saturday and have netted three goals this season – the equal-fewest in the division.
Cardiff are unbeaten in four, but are similarly toothless in attack and have managed just six goals.
Erling Haaland (Dortmund) to score first v Zenit (20:00)
As good as he is, there’s not a lot of value in backing Haaland anytime at . Instead it makes sense to extract a bit more out of it by backing him to bag first.
The Norwegian has already netted 13 goals in 13 appearances for club and country this season, opening the scoring on two occasions.
Zenit have kept just one clean sheet in seven in all competitions and were beaten 2-1 at home to Club Brugge on Matchday 1.
BTTS in Club Brugge v Lazio (20:00)
Lazio followed their 3-1 victory at home to Dortmund last week with a 2-1 win against Bologna in Serie A.
That was the Biancocelesti’s fourth game out of six in all competitions in which BTTS has landed.
This bet would have been a winner, meanwhile, in five of Club Brugge’s last seven.
BTTS Ferencvaros v Dynamo Kiev (20:00)
Both teams have scored in four of Ferencvaros’ last five Champions League matches this season, including their qualifiers.
The Hungarian side even found the net at Barcelona last week.
Dynamo Kiev have drawn just one blank in nine, when they were beaten 2-0 by Juventus last Tuesday.
Juventus to beat Barcelona (20:00)
Juventus are unbeaten in six matches in all competitions and look a decent price to get one over an ailing Barcelona side, even without Cristiano Ronaldo.
Barca come into this following a 3-1 home defeat in El Clasico, meaning they have lost back-to-back league games for the first time in over four years.
Their only victory in four matches came against Ferencvaros last week, and you would expect Juventus to provide a tougher test.
