1. West Ham to beat Huddersfield (15:00)
Huddersfield earned their first victory of the season against a Fulham side that failed to have a single shot on target on Monday evening, but are unlikely to build on that against West Ham.
The Terriers had taken just three points and scored four league goals prior to that game.
West Ham won 4-2 at home to Burnley on Saturday, with Felipe Anderson and Marko Arnautovic scoring three goals between them, and have the attacking potential to win this comfortably.
2. Marko Arnautovic (West Ham) to score v Huddersfield (15:00)
Arnautovic was sensational in West ham’s 4-2 win against Burnley last weekend and could have had more than just the 10th-minute opener he managed.
The Austrian’s numbers place him among the best strikers in the Premier League. He ranks fifth for shots, third for shots inside the penalty area, and 13th for xG, and has scored five goals in nine league appearances this term.
Huddersfield secured a valuable 1-0 win against Fulham last weekend, but expect the Hammers to offer plenty more in attack than Slavisa Jokanovic’s side.
3. Swansea to beat Bolton (15:00)
Bolton have scored just 11 league goals this season – the fewest in the division – and have, on average, just 2.8 shots on target per game – the second-fewest in the league.
The toothless Trotters have lost five of their last six matches to nil and scored just two goals in nine matches, so it is difficult to see them fashioning enough chances to stay in this one.
Swansea surrendered a one-goal lead to lose at Rotherham after two individual errors last weekend, but had won back-to-back games prior to that and will likely need to score just once to win on Saturday.
4. MK Dons to beat Grimsby (15:00)
Grimsby were beaten 2-1 at Mansfield in midweek, leaving them fourth-bottom of League Two after three straight losses.
It is difficult to see the Mariners – who have managed just 11 league goals this season – outscoring any team, let alone second-placed MK Dons.
Paul Tisdale’s side hammered Crawley 4-0 in the EFL Trophy in midweek and have won six of their last eight matches in all competitions, only losing to league leaders Lincoln in that sequence.
5. Birmingham v Hull (15:00)
After they beat Sheffield Wednesday 3-1 a fortnight ago, both teams have scored in all of Birmingham’s last five home games.
The last four of those have come against sides in the Championship’s bottom eight, with the Blues notching 10 goals in those games overall.
Hull, in 23rd position, are a good bet to hit the net at least once as well, then. Nigel Adkins’ side head into this game having won their last two matches, with a return to form for Fraizer Campbell and Kamil Grosicki a massive boost.
6. Bayern Munich not to beat Borussia Dortmund (17:30)
Dortmund suffered their first defeat of the season at Atletico Madrid on Tuesday, but are still undefeated domestically.
Lucien Favre’s side have scored 30 goals in eight home matches this season, keeping clean sheets against both Monaco and Atletico.
That kind of form should worry Bayern, who have won just four of their last nine matches. That run includes an uncertain 2-1 victory over fourth-tier SV Rodinghausen and a 1-1 draw at home to Freiburg in their last Bundesliga game.
7. Federico Santander (Bologna) to score v Chievo (14:00)
Santander has scored three goals in his last seven Serie A matches, with his underlying number suggesting that more will soon follow.
The striker ranks 18th for xG in Serie A and rises to 10th for shots inside the penalty area, so is an incredible price to hit the net against the league’s worst defence.
Chievo have conceded a league-high 28 goals this season, with 10 of those coming in their last four home matches. Their xG against at home is the third-worst in the division.
8. Heracles v Feyenoord (15:45)
Heracles have been prolific at home this season, bagging 17 goals in their five league games so far.
They also conceded in four of those matches, and they’ve kept just one clean sheet in 11 Eredivisie games overall.
Feyenoord have scored in eight of their last nine Eredivisie matches, and they let in four away at Ajax last time out.

9. Paris Saint-Germain (-1) to beat Monaco (20:00)
Paris Saint-Germain have won all 12 of their Ligue 1 matches this season, with all but one of those victories coming by a margin of two or more goals.
Thomas Tuchel’s side have already beaten Monaco 4-0 in the Champion’s Trophy back in August and should give out another hiding on Sunday.
Monaco were spanked 4-0 in midweek by Club Brugge in the Champions League and are currently on a 15-game winless run in all competitions.
10. Atlanta United to beat New York City (22:30)
Atlanta sneaked a 1-0 win away to New York City in the first leg as they gave MVP nominee Miguel Almiron 45 minutes on his return from injury.
Together with fellow MVP contender Josef Martinez, the pair have scored a combined total of 43 goals this season and can once again be the difference on Sunday.
Atlanta have won four straight games at home and should coast past poor travellers New York City, who have lost 10 of their last 13 away games in all competitions.
