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.
Bristol Rovers to beat AFC Wimbledon (15:00)
Wimbledon blew a one-goal lead to lose 2-1 away to Coventry on Tuesday, meaning they are winless after 11 games in all competitions this season.
Wally Downes’ side have netted just eight league goals – the second-fewest in the division – and have registered the third-fewest shots on goal, so it’s difficult to see them troubling Bristol Rovers’ defence.
Graham Coughlan’s side beat Lincoln 1-0 in their last away game and have lost just one of their last six league matches.
Ipswich to beat Gillingham (15:00)
Ipswich maintained their unbeaten start to the league season with a 1-0 victory away to MK Dons in midweek.
That was a fourth victory in five league games for the Tractor Boys, who are just one point behind league leaders Coventry despite playing a game fewer.
Gillingham have won just two of their 10 matches in all competitions so far, with one of those coming against a Bolton team made up of youth players.
Crewe to beat Salford (15:00)
Crewe scored a stoppage-time winner at Leyton Orient in midweek to go second in League Two.
The Railwaymen have won six of their last eight league games – more than any other side in the division.
Salford are one of four sides in League Two yet to win away this season and have only managed two victories in their opening nine matches.
RB Leipzig to win or draw v Werder Bremen & BTTS (17:30)
Julian Nagelsmann’s side are unbeaten in six matches this season, with BTTS landing in all but one.
Werder Bremen have scored and conceded in all five of their matches.
Atletico Madrid to beat Celta Vigo to nil (17:30)
Atletico Madrid have won both of their league games at the Wanda Metropolitano this season.
Diego Simeone’s side had the equal-best home record in La Liga last season, with 12 of their 15 victories coming to nil.
Celta have won just one game out of four this season, at home to a troubled Valencia side that are winless on the road.
Everton v Sheffield United (15:00)
Everton’s last three matches have finished 2-4, 3-2 and 3-1.
Marco Silva’s side are without a clean sheet in four overall, and have conceded in six of their last nine home matches against teams outside the Big Six.
Sheffield United have drawn 1-1 and 2-2 in their two away games so far this season, and rank eighth for xG in the Premier League overall.
Brentford v Stoke (15:00)
Manager Thomas Frank described Brentford’s first half against Derby in their last home match as the best in his three years at the club.
The Bees led 3-0 at the break in that game, while only Leeds and QPR have had more shots per home game since the start of last season.
Stoke have only failed to score against table-toppers Leeds this season, with BTTS also landing in every league game bar that one.
Millwall v QPR (15:00)
Millwall have scored in nine of their last 11 home games, including in all three this season.
They take on QPR, who have scored and conceded in seven of their nine matches this season.
Mark Warburton’s side rank third for shots per game in the division this season, winning 2-1 at Sheffield Wednesday in their last away game.
Freddie Ladapo (Rotherham) v Shrewsbury (15:00)
Ladapo has scored four goals this season, including two in the 6-1 hammering of Bolton last Saturday.
He ranks fourth for shots per game in League One and should have more opportunities to score against a ropey Shrewsbury defence.
Other than Bolton, who are an anomaly, the Shrews rank bottom for shots on target conceded per away game this season. They have shipped seven goals in four matches on the road and let in three at home to Southend on Tuesday.
Everton not to beat Sheffield United (15:00)
Everton have won home matches against Watford and Wolves this season, but lost the xG battle in both.
Marco Silva’s side lost at Bournemouth last weekend, and could drop more points against Sheffield United on Saturday.
The Blades have drawn at Bournemouth and Chelsea this term, and rank sixth for xPoints.
