We've compiled our writers’ best football tips, including win/draw/win and BTTS, into one bite-size betting preview for Saturday's matches.
Oxford to beat Accrington (15:00)
Oxford kept their impressive run of form going with a 3-0 win at home to Gillingham last weekend – their fourth victory in five games without conceding a goal.
Karl Robinson’s side beat West Ham 4-0 in the EFL Cup prior to that victory and won 6-0 at Lincoln the weekend before.
Accrington have won one of their last five matches, against third-bottom Southend, who have lost eight of their 10 league games.
Sunderland to beat Lincoln (15:00)
Lincoln have lost nine of their last 11 matches in all competitions, including six out of eight in the league.
The Imps were thumped 6-0 by Oxford in their last home league game and have earned just four points since beating third-bottom Southend in August.
Sunderland followed their 1-0 win over Sheffield United in the EFL Cup with a 2-1 victory at home to MK Dons last weekend and have lost just once in 13 matches in all competitions this season.
RB Salzburg (-3) to beat Altach (16:00)
Salzburg impressed in their 4-3 defeat at Liverpool on Wednesday, levelling the score after trailing 3-0 before going down to Mohamed Salah’s winner.
Back on league duty, where the Red Bulls have dropped just two points in nine matches, they should coast home.
Jesse Marsch’s side have scored four or more goals in all six of their matches at the Red Bull Arena this season, and should hammer an Altach side that have lost four out of four on the road.
West Ham to beat Crystal Palace (17:30)
West Ham are currently on a six-match unbeaten run in the Premier League, with their only defeat this season coming against Manchester City on the opening day.
The Hammers have won back-to-back games at the London Stadium against Manchester United and Norwich.
They are a decent price to make it three from three given Palace have lost two of their three away games, including a 4-0 hammering at Tottenham when they were last on the road.
Schalke to beat Cologne & BTTS (17:30)
Schalke beat RB Leipzig 3-1 away from home last weekend, becoming the first team to beat them in any competition this season.
David Wagner’s side have won four straight games in the Bundesliga, with BTTS landing in their last three, while their only defeat this season came against Bayern Munich back in August.
Cologne have lost five out of six since winning promotion back to the top tier, but have scored in games against Wolfsburg, Dortmund and Freiburg.
Lincoln v Sunderland (15:00)
BTTS has landed in nine of Sunderland’s 10 league matches this season.
Jack Ross’ side haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last nine games, scoring at the other end in eight.
Lincoln have wobbled a little after the departure of Danny Cowley, but Sunderland’s generous defence should ensure they score at least once.
Crewe v Exeter (15:00)
Crewe have scored eight goals in their last three home league games, with BTTS landing in all of them.
David Artell’s side have scored and conceded in seven of their last eight matches overall.
Both teams have scored in all of Exeter’s last three league away games, and in last week’s 3-1 home defeat to Grimsby.
QPR not to beat Blackburn (15:00)
QPR’s great start to the season has hit the wall in the last week with 2-0 and 3-0 defeats to West Brom and Cardiff.
Rangers did similar last season, backing up four wins and a draw with three consecutive losses at the end of September.
Blackburn won 2-1 at Reading in their last away match a fortnight ago, only losing on the road at Fulham and West Brom in the league this season.
Chris Wood (Burnley) to score v Everton (15:00)
Wood has scored three goals in his last two matches, including a brace in Burnley’s last home game.
The 27-year-old, who scored in this fixture two seasons ago, ranks 10th in the Premier League for xG.
Everton have conceded five goals in their last two away games, including three at Bournemouth last time out.
Paul Mullin (Tranmere) to score v Shrewsbury (15:00)
Mullin has only scored one goal this season, but more goals are surely imminent.
The striker ranks seventh in League One for shots per game, and has posted an xG of at least 0.4 in four of his last five games (experimental361).
Shrewsbury have conceded three goals in three of their last five league games, and have only kept one clean sheet on the road this season.
