Mythbusters: 4 double-chance football tips for Saturday
Back Tottenham, Celtic and two others to fail to win this weekend with these football betting tips. If you fancy all four, back the 29/1 accumulator.
Schalke not to beat Mainz
Schalke have endured a disastrous start to their Bundesliga season, losing all five of their matches and scoring just two goals.
Saturday’s hosts produced just three shots on target in a 1-0 defeat at Freiburg on Tuesday, after manager Domenico Tedesco had made six changes in an attempt to stir his side into action.
Mainz have on lost one of their six matches in all competitions, only going down 1-0 in an even game at Bayer Leverkusen last week.
Tottenham not to beat Huddersfield
Tottenham’s numbers away from home is poor enough that they are worth backing to slip up at Huddersfield.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side 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.
AFC Wimbledon not to beat Oxford
Five of Oxford’s seven defeats this season have come at the Kassam Stadium, where manager Karl Robinson admits his side “hate playing”, because “it doesn’t feel like home”.
The picture is not as grim on the road. The U’s have only lost at high-flyers Barnsley and Sunderland away from home, and had much the better of draws at Sunderland and Wycombe this month.
AFC Wimbledon are without a home win all season, losing them all since an opening-weekend 0-0 draw with Coventry, so this is a safe double-chance bet. An away win is available at .
Celtic not to beat Aberdeen
It must be quite the predicament for Brendan Rodgers to admit that he is “worried”, but last weekend’s 2-1 defeat at Kilmarnock prompted that unlikely utterance from the Celtic boss.
The Scottish champions have now won just two of their five league games this term, only scoring more than once in one of their last five outings at Parkhead overall.
Aberdeen are unbeaten in five away games this season, and won this fixture on the last day of last term. They are a good bet to extend their hosts’ bad run.
