1. Bournemouth to beat Newcastle (15:00)
Bournemouth ended a run of five games without a victory by beating bottom-of-the-league Huddersfield 2-0 last weekend.
Callum Wilson scored the opener on his return from injury and the Cherries’ impressive home form means there’s value in this pick.
The hosts have beaten West Ham and Chelsea and only lost to Manchester City in their last four games at the Vitality Stadium, while they have only failed to win at home against sides in the top eight since October.
Newcastle lost 2-0 at West Ham in their last away game and are without a win in their last six on the road in the league.
2. BTTS in Burnley v Leicester (15:00)
BTTS has landed in six of Burnley’s last seven matches, including their last four at Turf Moor.
Sean Dyche’s side have only failed to score against Manchester United and Chelsea at home this season, while their only league clean sheets have come against Bournemouth and West Ham.
Leicester have scored in all but one of their 15 league away games this season, with goals going in at both ends in 10 of them. In two game under Brendan Rodgers, they have lost 2-1 and won 3-1.
3. Hoffenheim not to beat Stuttgart (14:30)
Hoffenheim’s defensive record is so poor that they have won just one of their last nine away games, despite scoring in all of them.
The eight-placed side have conceded at least two goals in seven of those matches.
Sixteenth-placed Stuttgart in good form. They were level with Borussia Dortmund with just six minutes remaining last week, before eventually losing 3-1, while they won their last home game 5-1 against Hannover.
4. Coventry to beat Peterborough (15:00)
Peterborough come into this having lost back-to-back matches against the bottom two sides in the division.
Posh have lost five of their last seven league games and won just twice in their last 11 in all competitions in a run that has seen them drop out of the play-off positions.
Coventry beat Fleetwood 2-1 in midweek to move within three points of the top six and have won four of their last six.
5. Brett Pitman (Portsmouth) to score v Scunthorpe (15:00)
Pitman marked his return to the Portsmouth first XI with a goal at Walsall on Tuesday, so he is a strong tip to repeat the trick against Scunthorpe on Saturday.
The 31-year-old has started just seven league games this season but scored five goals, also scoring in both of his EFL Trophy starts. He comes to life inside the box, while he is also an established penalty-taker, so should always be on the end of Pompey’s best chances when he plays.
Scunthorpe have conceded at least twice in all of their four away games against League One’s top six this season, so are vulnerable to their fourth-place opposition here.
6. Manchester City to win to nil against Swansea (17:20)
City have kept four clean sheets from their last five matches, with the exception the win against Watford when they conceded just two shots.
Pep Guardiola’s side conceded just once in six matches on their way to winning the EFL Cup, and won two of their three matches to nil in this competition.
Swansea have lost their last two matches without scoring, but a heavy defeat here is likely beyond their control.
7. Paris Saint-Germain to beat Marseille & BTTS (20:00)
Paris Saint-Germain have won 14 home games out of 14 this season and have notched six straight victories in Ligue 1.
The leaders, however, have kept just four clean sheets in their last eight games.
Marseille have dropped just two points in their last six and haven’t failed to score in 11 matches so, while they probably don’t have enough quality to win, this looks like a decent value bet.
8. BTTS in Valencia v Getafe (17:30)
Valencia have scored in 11 of their last 13 La Liga matches, including a 3-2 win over Girona last weekend.
More goals look likely against Getafe, who have both scored and conceded in each of their last five games.
Jose Bordalas’ side have netted at least two goals in each of their last five matches, so there’s a good chance of a repeat of their 2-1 win at the Mestalla last season.
9. Rodrigo Moreno (Valencia) to score v Getafe (17:30)
Rodrigo continues to be underrated in the goalscorer markets, so looks a cracking bet to find the net against Getafe on Sunday.
The forward has scored in five of his last six home appearances, plundering a brace in one and a hat-trick in another. He ranks sixth for shots per game and 10th for xG per minute of players with 10+ La Liga appearances.
He scored a hat-trick in this fixture in the Copa Del Rey side, and Getafe – who have kept just two clean sheets in 17 away games this season – could be punished by him again.
10. Philadelphia Union to win or draw v Atlanta United (23:00)
MLS Cup champions Atlanta have taken just one point from their first two games under new manager Frank de Boer.
The Five Stripes conceded a late equaliser to draw 1-1 with new boys FC Cincinnati in their first home game of the season, having lost 2-0 at DC United in the opening game.
Philadelphia have lost back-to-back games to start the season, but finished with three away victories from their last four last term and, at odds against, I fancy them to get at least a point.
