Saturday Betting Guide: Our writers' 10 best football tips
We've compiled our writers’ best football tips, including win-draw-win, BTTS and anytime goalscorers, into one bite-size Saturday betting preview.
Leeds to beat Stoke (15:00)
Stoke are bottom of the Championship after four games, having picked up just one point so far this season.
The Potters’ 3-1 defeat at Preston on Tuesday means manager Nathan Jones has won just four of his 26 games in charge.
Leeds are top of the table on 10 points after beating Brentford 1-0 on Wednesday.
Wycombe to beat Southend (15:00)
Southend have lost four league games out of four under new manager Kevin Bond and are the only team in the entire EFL – Bury aside – yet to earn a point.
The Shrimpers were hammered 4-0 at Lincoln last weekend and followed that with a 2-0 defeat at home to previously winless Peterborough on Tuesday.
Wycombe’s 1-1 draw at Fleetwood in midweek extended their unbeaten start, while they were a stoppage-time equaliser away from claiming their third win in four matches.
Cambridge to beat Oldham (15:00)
Cambridge maintained their unbeaten start to the season with a 3-2 victory over Scunthorpe on Tuesday.
Colin Calderwood’s side have won back-to-back league games for the first time since January and are an enticing price to win.
Oldham are bottom of the table after four matches, having earned just one point and scored only one goal.
Vitesse to beat Heracles (18:45)
Heracles are third-bottom of the Eredivisie after three games, having earned just one point.
They have lost 2-0 to PSV and 4-0 to Heerenveen in both of their home games so far.
Vitesse have won back-to-back matches against PEC Zwolle and Willem II, while they drew 2-2 against Ajax on the opening day.
Benfica to beat Porto (19:00)
Porto were beaten 2-1 by Gil Vicente in their only away game so far this season.
They also lost both of their league games against Benfica last season and have won just one of their last six league meetings against them.
Benfica have started their league season with two wins out of two and two clean sheets.
Grimsby v Port Vale (15:00)
This is a huge price for BTTS in a game between two sides who have produced plenty of goals so far this season.
Grimsby have scored in four of their first five matches of the season, only failing to do so away at Forest Green. They drew 2-2 with Colchester on Tuesday.
Port Vale have scored and conceded in all five of their games so far, beating Forest Green 2-1 last time out.
Leyton Orient v Crawley (15:00)
Leyton Orient came back from 2-0 down to beat Mansfield 3-2 on Saturday and can back that up by scoring at least once here.
Crawley have scored and conceded in four of their five games this season, including 3-2 and 2-2 scorelines.
The visitors have taken 64 shots in their opening three matches, 17 more than any other side.
Chelsea not to beat Norwich (12:30)
Chelses are heavy favourites to win this game, but it wouldn’t surprise many people should they fail to do so.
Frank Lampard’s side have played well in patches so far this season, but don’t look like they are capable of keeping a clean sheet.
Norwich have scored four goals in two matches so far, including one at Liverpool, so can take advantage.
Roberto Firmino (Liverpool) to score v Arsenal (17:30)
Firmino is a nice bet to continue his incredible run against Arsenal at Anfield.
The Brazilian has scored in all of the last four meetings between these sides on Merseyside, including a brace in January 2016, and a hat-trick last season.
He scored in Liverpool’s victory at Southampton last week, and has missed a couple of other big chances already this term.
Beryly Lubula (Crawley) to score v Leyton Orient (15:00)
Lubula has scored in all four of Crawley’s league matches so far this season.
The 21-year-old leads the line for a side that has netted six goals in four games and comfortably tops the table in terms of shots.
He should have more opportunities to score against Leyton Orient, who conceded twice at Mansfield on Tuesday.
