Mythbusters: 4 double-chance football tips for Saturday
Adam Drury is backing these four favourites to slip up this weekend in his football tips. If you fancy them all, back the 16/1 four-fold.
Had you placed a £10 stake on each of Adam Drury's Mythbusters football betting tips for the 2018/19 season, your profit would be:
Derby not to beat Rotherham (15:00)
Derby have failed to score a goal in four of their last six matches, with an edgy 2-1 win over Wigan their only victory in eight.
And though Frank Lampard may have Mason Mount to call upon for the first time since January, the Chelsea loanee is unlikely to be sharp enough to reverse his side’s downward trajectory here.
Rotherham have only been beaten by the Championship’s top two, Sheffield United and Norwich, in their last nine matches, winning 2-1 at QPR last time out on the road.
Oldham not to beat Grimsby (15:00)
Paul Scholes has resigned as manager since Oldham’s last match, but the problems that he cited as the reason for his departure still exist ahead of the visit of Grimsby.
The Latics are winless in six matches and have only beaten members of League Two’s bottom three in their last seven home games.
Grimsby secured creditable 0-0 draws with Northampton and Bury in their last two matches, so can avoid defeat against struggling opposition.
Kilmarnock not to beat Hamilton (15:00)
Kilmarnock have failed to win nine of their last 10 matches, slipping out of the Scottish Premiership’s top three in the process.
Steve Clarke’s side have not scored a goal in any of their last three home games, most recently drawing 0-0 with eighth-placed Motherwell.
Kilmarnock have drawn 1-1 with Hamilton both home and away already this season, while Saturday’s visitors impressively won 2-0 at Aberdeen last month.
Atletico Madrid not to beat Alaves (19:45)
Atletico to slip up at Athletic Bilbao a fortnight ago was a profitable pick, so it makes sense to punt on the same outcome when they go to Alaves.
Diego Simeone’s side have won just seven of their 20 away matches on the road in all competitions this season. Of their 11 La Liga away games against teams outside the relegation zone, they have won just two.
Alaves have only lost one of 14 home matches this term, including victories over Real Madrid and Sevilla and a draw with Valencia. They have no reason to fear Atletico.
