4 To Score is Betway’s free-to-play prediction game, where you can win £25,000 by simply guessing the first team to score in the top four divisions across Saturday’s three o’clock kick-offs.
Top pick: Leicester
Bournemouth conceded the fastest goal in the Premier League against Newcastle last week, and the Cherries’ next opponents could grab an early goal on Saturday.
Leicester are three-time 4 To Score winners this season – the joint-most in the top-flight – and are a great choice against a defence that have conceded inside 10 minutes in five of their last nine games.
Honourable mention: Watford
Watford have scored an opening goal inside the first 15 minutes of games on six occasions this season – the joint-most of any Premier League side.
They’re a solid pick against West Brom, who have conceded at least twice in each of their last six matches.
Top pick: Fulham
Derby have conceded seven goals in their last three games, including ones inside the first 20 minutes against Sheffield Wednesday and Reading. They are vulnerable to in-form Fulham.
Honourable mention: Nottingham Forest
Derby have conceded seven goals in their last three games, including goals inside the first 20 minutes against Sheffield Wednesday and Reading. They are vulnerable to in-form Fulham.
Nottingham Forest put five past QPR last time out and could enjoy hosting a Birmingham side that defends dismally.
Top pick: Blackpool
Six of the last seven 4 To Score winners in League One netted first while playing at home.
Five of those were hosting a side that had failed to win their previous match, while four were coming into the game on the back of a victory themselves.
By process of elimination, that only leaves us with Blackpool this weekend. They take on a Northampton team that have conceded the division’s earliest goal three times since 9 December.
Honourable mentions: Southend, Walsall
Southend have scored more goals in the first 10 minutes of matches than any other side in League One, having taken the lead inside seven minutes in three of their last four matches.
They play Walsall, whose legs are likely to be heavy after losing to Peterborough in the snow in midweek.
If you want an outside shout, then MK Dons are hosting a Bristol Rovers side that have fallen behind inside four minutes in two of their last three away matches.
Top pick: Lincoln
With only three games to choose from, Lincoln are your best bet. Their opponents Coventry have conceded the division’s earliest goal twice in the last seven weeks.
The Ricoh Arena also has under-soil heating, meaning the game’s almost guaranteed to go ahead.
Honourable mention: Carlisle
Of the other five League Two sides in action this weekend, Carlisle have scored the earliest goal three times this season.
