Saturday Betting Guide: Our writers' 10 best football tips
We've compiled our writers’ best football tips, including win/draw/win and BTTS, into one bite-size betting preview for Saturday's matches.
Georgia to win or draw v Republic of Ireland & under 2.5 goals (14:00)
Georgia earned a credible goalless draw last month against Denmark, who are currently second in Group D.
Vladimir Weiss’ side have lost just one of their last 11 matches at home, keeping eight clean sheets.
Ireland only managed to beat Georgia 1-0 at the Aviva Stadium in March, while a 1-0 victory over Gibraltar is their only away win in eight.
Oxford to beat Doncaster (15:00)
Oxford are unbeaten in their last seven matches in all competitions and have won four of their last five at the Kassam Stadium.
The U’s recorded two 3-0 victories at home and a 6-0 away during that run, plus a 4-0 hammering of West Ham in the EFL Cup third round.
They look a good price to beat a Doncaster side that are without a win on the road this season and have lost back-to-back games.
Crewe to beat Carlisle (15:00)
Carlisle were beaten 1-0 at Newport last weekend, meaning they have now lost three of their last four matches in all competitions.
The Cumbrians have taken just one point from six games against sides who are currently seventh and above, so a visit from fourth-placed Crewe is the last thing they need.
The Railwaymen have taken 14 points from their last seven games after drawing back-to-back games against top-seven sides Exeter and Cheltenham, and are about to welcome defender Perry Ng back from suspension.
Bradford to beat Morecambe (15:00)
Bradford beat fellow promotion contenders Swindon 2-1 last weekend without the suspended Ben Richards-Everton, James Vaughan or the injured Matty Palmer – all of whom would have started.
That was the Bantams’ fourth victory in their last six league games and, with captain Vaughan available for selection again, it’s hard not to fancy them this weekend.
Second-bottom Morecambe blew a one-goal lead to lose 3-1 away to Port Vale on Saturday and have won just once in 16 matches in all competitions this season.
Denmark v Switzerland: Draw (17:00)
Everything about this match-up points towards a draw.
Five of Denmark’s last seven matches have ended level, with the two exceptions easy wins against Georgia and Gibraltar.
Switzerland, who would be happy with a point, drew 1-1 at the Republic of Ireland in their last match. These sides also drew 3-3 when they met in March.
Romania to beat Faroe Islands to nil (17:00)
Romania come into this on the back of just two defeats in their last 16 matches, against Spain and Sweden.
They have won four of their last seven away games, keeping clean sheets in victories over Malta and Montenegro in their last four.
Faroe Islands have lost six matches on the spin, including back-to-back home games to nil.
Peterborough v Lincoln (15:00)
Peterborough have scored 15 goals in five home league matches this season, with BTTS landing in three of them.
Posh drew 3-3 at Wycombe last week, and will field both of League One’s top two goalscorers, Ivan Toney and Mo Eisa.
BTTS has landed in all of Lincoln’s last six away games, while they scored twice against Sunderland last week.
Ivan Toney (Peterborough) to score v Lincoln (15:00)
Toney has scored in seven of his 11 League One appearances this season, including five in five home matches.
The forward ranks top in the division for shots per league game, and fourth for shots inside the penalty area.
Lincoln have conceded 10 goals in their last five away games, while only six teams have conceded more shots per away game this term.
James Vaughan (Bradford) to score v Morecambe (15:00)
Having missed last weekend’s win over Swindon, Vaughan has a fantastic chance to score his fourth goal of the season at Morecambe.
The 31-year-old ranks second for shots per League Two game, and top for shots inside the penalty area.
Morecambe have shipped 10 goals in their last five home matches and have conceded more shots per home game than any other team in the division.
Alexander Karapetyan to score and Armenia to beat Liechtenstein (19:45)
Karapetyan has scored in five of his last seven Armenia matches, including in his most recent outing against Italy.
He has every chance of extending that run against a side that have conceded twice in their last four home matches.
The hosts have also failed to score in nine of their last 11 home games, so a goal for the 31-year-old should ensure that his team win the game.
