1. Everton to beat Huddersfield (3pm)
Huddersfield’s dismal start to the season continued in midweek with a 2-0 defeat at Championship Stoke in the EFL Cup – a game that featured Saido Berahino’s first goal in 913 days.
The Terriers have now lost three and drawn one of their four matches in all competitions, with their only goal of the season a consolation in a 6-1 defeat at Manchester City.
Everton have scored two or more in each game of their four-match unbeaten run and should cruise to victory.
2. Portsmouth to beat Plymouth (3pm)
Portsmouth’s 100 per cent start was halted by a 0-0 draw at Doncaster last week, but they still boast 13 points after five matches.
Fears of a lack of firepower were allayed by the arrival of Aston Villa loanee Andre Green in midweek. He comes into an attack that includes three-goal Ronan Curtis and David Wheeler.
Plymouth have won just two points so far this season and sank to the bottom of the table after their 5-1 home defeat to Peterborough last Saturday.
3. West Brom v Stoke both teams to score (3pm)
West Brom have got off to an explosive start to the season, with 3-4 and 7-1 scorelines contributing to four BTTS matches from five in the league.
The Baggies have scored in all of their seven home matches since Darren Moore took over as manager last season, conceding in all but two of them.
Stoke have rediscovered their scoring touch in the last two weeks, netting four goals in two days in the Championship and EFL Cup, with both teams scoring in both of their away games so far this season.
4. Andre Schurrle (Fulham) to score v Brighton (3pm)
Schurrle attempted 11 shots in Fulham’s 4-2 win over Burnley on Sunday, more than any other player has managed in a single Premier League match so far this season.
And with Fulham not likely to curb their attacking instincts, he is a big price to add to the goal he scored late in that match.
Brighton have conceded five goals in three Premier League matches so far this season and managed one clean sheet in their last 10 league matches at the AMEX stadium, so will concede chances to the German.
5. Atletico Madrid not to beat Celta Vigo (5.30pm)
Atletico limped past Rayo Vallecano 1-0 last weekend, but may not have such luck if they underperform again.
Celta Vigo had an excellent home record against Spain’s best sides last season, avoiding defeat against Barcelona, Real Madrid and Valencia at the Balaidos.
Though now under different management, their unbeaten start to the La Liga season suggests that they are a good enough team to produce similar this term.
6. Millwall to beat Swansea (5.30pm)
Millwall’s 3-2 comeback win over Plymouth in the EFL Cup extended their unbeaten start at home to four matches in all competitions.
Their defeat to Fulham in April remains their only loss in their last 21 matches at the Den.
Neil Harris’ side brushed Derby aside in their last home league game and should do the same against Swansea, who have lost back-to-back matches.
7. Philadelphia Union to beat Orlando (12.30am)
Philadelphia’s 2-0 win at DC United on Thursday was their fifth consecutive victory in all competitions and opened a 10-point gap to seventh place.
The Union have won four of their last five away games and should add another against the Eastern Conference’s bottom side.
Orlando have earned just one point from their last six league games and are bottom of the form table.
8. Andrea Belotti (Torino) to score v SPAL (7.30pm)
Belotti has started the season in fantastic form, so is an unmissable price to score at home to SPAL on Sunday.
The 24-year-old scored twice in the Coppa Italia a fortnight ago, before kicking off Torino’s impressive comeback from 2-0 down at Inter Milan last weekend.
His side can carry that performance level into this game against SPAL, who have opened up with two 1-0 wins, but have not yet played great opposition.
9. Atalanta to beat Cagliari (7.30pm)
Atalanta pasted promoted side Frosinone 4-0 at home on the opening day and followed that with a 3-3 draw away to Roma.
Back at home, where they have won three of their last four and taken points from both Milan and Inter, Gian Piero Gasperini’s side should win again.
Cagliari’s 2-0 defeat at Empoli on the opening day was their fifth loss in six away games in Serie A.
10. Real Betis v Sevilla (7.45pm)
The Seville derby is Sunday’s safest BTTS bet.
When these local rivals met at Betis’ ground in May the score was 2-2, and the reverse fixture finished 5-3 to Sevilla.
Betis are almost definitely going to be a reliable BTTS side this season. Last term they scored the fourth-most goals in La Liga, but also conceded more than any side outside of the relegation zone.
