1. Tottenham to beat Burnley (12:30)
Tottenham have won 10 of their last 12 matches in the league, while last week’s 3-0 victory over Dortmund was their fourth in succession in all competitions.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have won nine games out of nine against the current bottom six this season and, with top scorer Harry Kane pushing for a recall after injury, they should make it 10 from 10.
While Burnley have lost just one of their last nine, seven of their eight games in all competitions against the top six this campaign have ended in defeat.
2. Barnsley to beat Portsmouth (15:00)
Barnsley are currently on a 13-match unbeaten run in League One stretching back to mid-December. They’ve won nine of those matches, and are currently four points clear of the play-offs.
The Tykes overtook Portsmouth during that run, having already taken points off their hosts as well as other promotion rivals Luton and Charlton.
They could welcome back top scorer Kieffer Moore at Fratton Park who, along with Cauley Woodrow, forms part of the best strike partnership in the division, netting 29 goals between them.
Pompey were held to a 1-1 draw by relegation threatened Bristol Rovers in midweek, giving away two penalties, and are winless in their last seven league games.
3. Crewe v Exeter BTTS (15:00)
BTTS has landed in seven of Crewe’s last eight matches, including in all of their last four.
The hosts’ last three home matches have finished 3-2, 2-1 and 2-1, while they rank in the top five for both shots on target and shots on target conceded per League Two home match this term.
Exeter have scored six goals in their last four away games, so should take advantage of their hosts’ lax defence.
4. Nicky Maynard (Bury) to score v Oldham (15:00)
Maynard scored his sixth goal in eight matches against Exeter last weekend, and looks a great bet to prolong his impressive campaign against Oldham on Saturday.
The striker has scored 15 goals overall this season, and has netted in three of his last five at Gigg Lane. Fronting a side that have scored at least three times in four of their last five home games, more chances are bound to come.
Oldham are yet to keep a clean sheet in three matches under new manager Paul Scholes, and have conceded twice in three of their last four away games.
5. Barcelona not to beat Sevilla (15:15)
Sevilla won this fixture 2-0 in the Copa del Rey in January, and can inflict similar damage here.
That result was the second match in Barcelona’s current run of one win in five away games, having drawn their last two 0-0.
Sevilla have lost just one of their 11 La Liga home matches this season, a 2-0 defeat against Getafe back in September.
They have won seven and drawn two of their subsequent nine, including a 3-0 victory over Real Madrid and 1-1 draw with Atletico.
6. Roma to win to nil v Frosinone (19:30)
Frosinone were beaten 3-0 away to Juventus last weekend and have lost four of their last six league games.
They have scored just 17 league goals this season, two fewer than any other side, and have failed to find the net in any of their 10 games against the current top seven.
Roma have dropped just four points in a seven-match unbeaten run in Serie A and have won two of their last three away games to nil.
7. James Collins (Luton) to score v Coventry (12:00)
Collins is a fantastic odds-against bet to score against Coventry given he has scored seven goals in his last five league home games.
The striker has scored nine in his last eight appearances overall, and fronts a side that have scored at least three goals in their last three matches at Kenilworth Road.
Coventry have conceded at least twice in seven of their last 11 games, and are unlikely to stop their rampant hosts from creating plenty of chances.
8. PSV to beat Feyenoord and over 2.5 goals (13:30)
PSV are the only side in the Eredivisie who still boast a 100 per cent record at home.
Mark van Bommel’s side beat Fortuna Sittard 5-0 last time out at the Phillips Stadion, where 10 of their 11 games have produced three or more goals.
Feyenoord lost 1-0 at mid-table Groningen last weekend and have lost three straight away games.
9. Stade Rennes v Marseille BTTS (16:00)
Rennes drew 3-3 with Betis in their last home match, meaning they’ve now scored in 11 of their last 12 matches at Roazhon Park.
They’ve kept five successive clean sheets at home in Ligue 1, but that run should come to an end against a Marseille side that have scored in all but two of their 13 league away games so far.
These sides drew 2-2 when they met in Marseille in August, and a similar result would be no surprise on Sunday.
10. Sergio Aguero (Man City) to score v Chelsea (16:30)
Aguero bagged a hat-trick in City’s 6-0 win over Chelsea a fortnight ago, and should find the net at least once in the EFL Cup final.
The Argentine has now scored 22 goals this season in all competitions, and also netted twice against Chelsea in the Community Shield at Wembley in August.
