1. Manchester United to beat Southampton and BTTS (15:00)
Manchester United beat Crystal Palace 3-1 at Selhurst Park in midweek and are currently on an 11-match unbeaten run in the Premier League, in which they have dropped only four points.
United have both scored and conceded against Burnley, Brighton, Bournemouth, Huddersfield and Fulham at Old Trafford and, having drawn the reverse fixture 2-2 in December, it is hard to completely discount Southampton.
Southampton have managed just two victories in their last 15 matches and have picked up just one point from their five away games against the top six.
2. Morecambe to beat Yeovil (15:00)
Morecambe lost 2-0 at home to Lincoln last Saturday, but had won back-to-back matches prior to that for only the second time this season.
One of those victories came against third-bottom Port Vale, meaning the Shrimpers have won three and drawn two of their five matches against sides in the bottom four.
Away to fourth-bottom Yeovil, who had lost six on the spin prior to their 1-0 victory over out-of-form Cambridge last Saturday, they are one of the best value bets in the EFL this week.
3. Monaco to beat Angers (19:00)
Monaco have finally started playing to something closer to their potential and beat third-placed Lyon 2-0 last weekend.
Leonardo Jardim’s side have dropped just two points in their last four league games in a run that has seen them climb out of the relegation zone and up to 16th.
At odds-against, they are a tempting bet to notch another three points against an Angers side that lost 1-0 to bottom-of-the-league Guingamp last weekend.
4. BTTS in Crewe v Northampton (15:00)
BTTS has landed in eight of Crewe’s last nine matches, including in each of their last four at Gresty Road.
The Railwaymen rank in the top six for shots on target and shots on target against in League Two, with striker Chris Porter scoring in eight of his last 11 appearances.
Both teams have scored in 10 of Northampton’s last 11 away games, including in each of their last six, so this looks a banker.
5. Sean Maguire (Preston) to score v Bristol City (15:00)
Maguire has scored two goals in three games as Preston's central striker, and can go again when they host Bristol City on Saturday.
The Irishman ranks inside the Championship's top 20 for shots on target per game, and fronts a side that have scored at least twice in five of their last seven games.
Bristol City have hit bad form at the wrong time, conceding five goals in losing their last two matches.
6. Oldham not to beat Stevenage (15:00)
Oldham beat Yeovil the day after Paul Scholes was appointed as manager, but have since drawn one and lost two of their next three.
The Latics have failed to beat bottom-half Crewe and Morecambe at Boundary Park in the last fortnight, concerningly losing the xG battle in both (experimental361).
Stevenage have avoided defeat in four of their last seven away games, claiming a good 2-2 draw at Lincoln last time out, so can hold their struggling hosts.
7. Juventus to win or draw v Napoli (19:30)
Juventus are 13 points clear of second-placed Napoli at the top of Serie A and remain unbeaten in the league, having won 22 and drawn three of their 25 games.
Max Allegri’s side have dropped just two points in 12 matches away from the Allianz Stadium and won the reverse fixture 3-1 in September.
Napoli represent their toughest game of the season but, having only won four of their last eight games in all competitions, the league leaders should be confident of earning at least a point.
8. BTTS in Basel v Thun (15:00)
These sides have each been involved in 18 BTTS matches this season, more than any other side in the goal-laden Swiss Super League.
They have already met twice in the league this season, with Thun winning at home 4-2 in November after they drew 1-1 in Basel two months earlier.
The visitors’ last five league away games have all seen goals at both ends, and this one should be no different.
9. Rodrigo (Valencia) to score v Athletic Bilbao (19:45)
After he scored the winner in Valencia’s Copa del Rey semi-final win against Real Betis on Thursday, Rodrigo looks a massive price to hit the net against Bilbao this weekend.
The forward has now scored in three of his last four appearances at the Mestalla, including a hat-trick against Getafe in January.
He ranks sixth for shots, eighth for shots inside the penalty area and sixth for xG per La Liga match this season, suggesting that he will receive plenty of opportunities.
10. Atlanta United to beat DC United (23:00)
Reigning MLS Cup champions Atlanta United come into their opening league game on the back of a 4-0 second-leg victory over Herediano that saw them qualify for the CONCACAF Champions League quarter final.
Last year’s Golden Boot winner and MVP Josef Martinez scored twice in that victory, proving that the Five Stripes can do it without Miguel Almiron.
They won six of their final 10 away games last season and won 7-1 at Seattle Sounders in a pre-season friendly last month.
DC won six of their last seven home games last season and will take some stopping but, at this price, I’m happy to go with the defending champs.
