1. Chelsea to win to nil v Huddersfield (15:00)
Huddersfield lost for the 11th time in a 12-match winless run in midweek, going down 1-0 at home to an Everton side that played with 10 men for the last 24 minutes.
The Terriers have managed just 13 league goals this season and that defeat was the fourth straight match they have failed to score.
Chelsea come into this on the back of a shock 4-0 defeat at Bournemouth but, having won eight of their last 10 matches at Stamford Bridge, have an excellent opportunity to put that right.
2. Crystal Palace not to beat Fulham (15:00)
Crystal Palace’s second half at Southampton on Wednesday was damaging not just because their Premier League winless run extended to three matches, but that they will be without the suspended Wilfried Zaha for Saturday’s visit of Fulham.
While Roy Hodgson’s side have won without their talisman this season, his absence will not help them end a run of scoring one goal in three league matches at Selhurst Park.
Palace have won just two of 11 league outings at home overall this season, so it will be a struggle to see off Fulham, who were unfortunate to lose at Burnley in their last away match and came from behind to beat Brighton 4-2 on Tuesday.
3. BTTS in Portsmouth v Doncaster (15:00)
BTTS has landed in seven of Portsmouth’s last nine league matches, most recently in their 3-2 defeat at Luton on Tuesday.
Given that Doncaster’s last three away matches have finished 1-3, 1-3 and 3-2, goals at both ends looks a good bet when the two meet at Fratton Park on Saturday.
The visitors have scored and conceded in all of their last four matches overall, while both of these sides rank in the top five for shots on target per League One game this term.
4. Luton to beat Shrewsbury (15:00)
This is my best bet of the weekend by some distance.
Luton extended their lead at the top of League One to five points with a 3-2 victory at home to second-placed Portsmouth (who remain the division’s best away side) on Tuesday.
That victory made it 17 league games without defeat for the Hatters, who have won 12 and drawn two of their 14 matches against bottom-half sides.
Shrewsbury lost 4-3 at fellow strugglers Bradford in midweek despite scoring a 93rd-minute equaliser, and have won just one of their last 10 matches in all competitions.
5. James Collins (Luton) to score v Shrewsbury (15:00)
Collins was a successful tip to score against Portsmouth on Tuesday – a game in which he grabbed a brace – so there is no point trying anything different here.
The striker – also a penalty-taker – has scored nine goals in his last 11 appearances overall, including at Coventry, Walsall and Sunderland.
Luton have won three consecutive matches and are in good enough form to create more chances for him at Shrewsbury, who conceded two or more for the sixth time at home this season in a 3-0 defeat to Charlton last month.
6. Toulouse to win or draw against Monaco (19:00)
Monaco have lost four successive matches in all competitions, and they’ve only won three times in Ligue 1 all season, all of which came away from home.
The hosts are third-last in the division in both xG and xGA at home this season, and they now face a Toulouse side that have won three of their last four on the road.
A potential new manager bounce for Monaco under Leonardo Jardim means it’s not quite worth backing Toulouse to win outright, but they should manage to avoid defeat against a team bereft of confidence.
7. Federico Chiesa (Fiorentina) to score v Udinese (14:00)
Chiesa is an enormous price to hit the net at Udinese on Sunday considering he has scored seven goals in his last four matches, and five in his last two.
The forward ranks fourth for shots, ninth for shots inside the penalty area and 14th for xG in Serie A this season, all of which suggests he can continue this run against a poor Udinese defence.
The hosts have conceded two or more goals at home to four other members of Serie A’s top 12 this season, while their defence ranks sixth-bottom for xG against at home.
8. Man Utd to beat Leicester and BTTS (14:05)
I fancy United to make it five successive wins away from home, especially as several key performers who missed Tuesday’s 2-2 draw with Burnley will be back in the side.
Both teams to score is worth adding in, too. Leicester’s most impressive performances come against the league’s best sides, while United have conceded in six of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s nine matches in charge.
9. BTTS in Augsburg v Mainz (14:30)
Augsburg are the third-most reliable BTTS side in the Bundesliga, with goals at both ends in 15 of their 19 matches this season.
Manuel Baum’s side lost 2-0 away at Borussia Monchengladbach last weekend, but BTTS landed in each of their previous four matches, and in their last five at home.
Expect mote goals this weekend when they face Mainz, who have scored and conceded in each of their last six league matches.
10. Paris Saint-Germain to beat Lyon and over 2.5 goals (20:00)
Paris Saint-Germain showed they can adapt to life without the injured Neymar last weekend, beating Stade Rennes 4-1 in the Brazilian’s absence.
That result followed a 9-0 victory over Guingamp and was the league leaders’ 18th victory in 20 unbeaten Ligue 1 matches this season, with fewer than three goals in just three of those games.
Thomas Tuchel’s side won the reverse fixture 5-0 in October and should complete the double against Lyon, who have managed just three league victories in their last eight games.
