1. Wolves to beat Southampton (15:00)
Wolves have taken well to life in the Premier League and deservedly earned a point away to Manchester United last weekend.
That result extended their unbeaten run to four league games in a sequence that also includes a draw with Manchester City.
Southampton lost at Liverpool in their last match and have won just four of their last 31 league games.
2. Tottenham not to beat Huddersfield (15:00)
Tottenham’s numbers away from home is poor enough that they are worth backing to slip up at Huddersfield.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side - who are without Christian Eriksen - rank eighth for shots per game on the road this season, while only five Premier League teams have conceded fewer shots on target at home than their hosts.
The Terriers did not get much luck at Leicester last week, with the Foxes finding the net from all of their best chances. But a reversal of fortunes, combined with their decent defensive record, can see them pick something up on Saturday.
3. Forest Green to beat Macclesfield (15:00)
Bottom-of-the-league Macclesfield’s confidence is likely to have bottomed out after an 8-0 thumping from West Ham in the EFL Cup in midweek.
That was the fourth straight defeat in all competitions for the Silkmen, who are yet to win in the league since being promoted last season.
Forest Green beat Crawley 1-0 last Saturday to extend their unbeaten run to five matches in all competitions.
4. Preston v West Brom BTTS (15:00)
Preston’s last four home matches have finished 2-2, 2-2, 2-3 and 2-2, and more of the same can be expected on Saturday.
Alex Neil’s side have conceded at least twice in all of their last seven league games overall, but that they rank fifth for shots on target at home suggests that their attacking returns are sustainable, too.
West Brom are three goals clear as the Championship’s top scorers this season, with Harvey Barnes and Dwight Gayle particularly impressing, but are without a clean sheet on the road.
5. Raul Jimenez (Wolves) to score v Southampton (15:00)
Only six players have fired more shots per game than Jimenez in the Premier League this season, an attempt rate that has resulted in a goal in two of Wolves’ three home matches.
The Mexican could easily have had more than one goal in his side’s win over Burnley a fortnight ago, and should find Southampton equally generous visitors.
Only five teams have conceded more shots on target away from home than the Saints, who – by their manager’s own admission – could manage nothing more than damage limitation after going 3-0 down by half-time at Liverpool last week.
6. PSV (-1) to beat NAC Breda (17:30)
PSV beat Ajax 3-0 in De Topper last weekend, and they’ve now scored 24 goals in their six Eredivisie games this season, winning all of them.
The champions have won by two goals or more in four of those matches, and they should again triumph comfortably against NAC Breda on Saturday night.
The hosts have lost five of six in the Eredivisie, with four of those defeats coming by a margin of at least two goals.
7. DC United to beat Montreal Impact (00:00)
The signing of Wayne Rooney may just have been enough to secure a play-off spot for DC United.
They have lost just four of their 14 MLS games since the former Everton man made his debut and now sit just five points behind the top six with two games in hand.
They should beat sixth-placed Montreal at the weekend, who have lost 12 of their last 17 away games in all competitions.
8. Genoa to beat Frosinone (14:00)
Frosinone’s grim run continued with a 4-0 defeat away to Roma on Wednesday.
The promoted side are now second-bottom of Serie A, having picked up just one point and failed to score a single goal in their opening six matches.
Genoa beat bottom-of-the-league Chievo on Wednesday and have won four of their six matches in all competitions this season.
9. Krzysztof Piatek (Genoa) to score v Frosinone (14:00)
Piatek has been successful tip twice already this season, and his good run shows no sign of ending after he scored in his third consecutive match on Wednesday evening.
The Pole now has to be considered among the top strikers in Serie A. Not only is he clear as the division’s top scorer, but he ranks fourth for shots and second (to Cristiano Ronaldo) for shots inside the penalty area, suggesting that this run is sustainable.
Frosinone have conceded seven goals in their last two home matches, so are sure to concede chances to the 23-year-old.
10. Lille v Marseille BTTS (20:00)
Lille have scored at least two goals in each of their last six home league games dating back to last season.
They’ve also kept just one clean sheet in their last 14 matches at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy, and they now face one of the most reliable BTTS sides in Ligue 1.
Marseille have notched 24 goals in eight games in all competitions – getting on the scoresheet in every match – but they’ve also conceded eight in their last three, including four away at Lyon last week.
