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.
Ipswich to beat Tranmere to nil (15:00)
League One leaders Ipswich are one of just four EFL sides who are yet to lose in the league, having dropped just six points in their opening nine games.
The Tractor Boys have won five of their last six matches and have conceded just four league goals this season – the equal-fewest in the top four divisions – and kept five straight clean sheets.
Tranmere’s 2-1 victory at home to Burton was only their second this season (the first coming against Bolton’s youth team last month). They have taken just one point from four away games, failing to score in three.
Crawley to beat Walsall (15:00)
Crawley come into this on the back of a penalty shoot-out win over Stoke in the EFL Cup in midweek – their second victory over a higher-division team this season.
Gabriele Cioffi’s side have been impressive at home, taking seven points from games against Plymouth, Mansfield and Cheltenham, while their only defeat came against second-placed Crewe last month.
Walsall were beaten 3-2 when these sides met in the first round of the EFL Cup in August. They have failed to score in three of their last four away games and their 1-0 win at Morecambe last week remains their only victory in four on the road.
Northampton to beat Morecambe (15:00)
Northampton let a two-goal lead slip in a 2-2 draw against in-form Crawley last weekend, but should make amends here.
The Cobblers had won three of their previous four matches, including a 2-0 victory at home to top-seven Newport.
Third-bottom Morecambe have lost seven and drawn one of their last eight matches and have picked up just two points in five league games at home.
Manchester City to beat Everton & over 3.5 goals (17:30)
Manchester City’s 8-0 thumping of Watford was their fourth victory from their opening six Premier League matches.
That was the third time this season that City have scored four or more in a game, while it maintained a record of over 3.5 goals in each of their league games.
Everton have lost three of their last four in the league and there have been four or more goals in two of their last three.
Atalanta to beat Sassuolo (19:45)
Atalanta’s 2-0 victory away to Roma lifted them above Napoli into third in Serie A.
Gian Piero Gasperini’s side have won three away games out of three in the league and look a good price to get a fourth.
Sassuolo have lost three league games out of five, winning both home games but, given those victories came against bottom two Sampdoria and SPAL, they are worth taking on.
Cheltenham v Crewe (15:00)
This is the BTTS banker of the weekend.
Cheltenham have scored at least twice in all five of their home matches this season, with their last three finishing 2-2, 4-2 and 3-2.
Crewe have netted two goals in five of their six away games, with BTTS landing in six of their last seven overall.
Barcelona not to beat Getafe (15:00)
Barcelona have not won any of their four away matches this season, failing to score in three of them.
Ernesto Valverde’s side were particularly poor in last week’s 2-0 defeat at Granada, failing to fashion any decent chances to score.
Getafe are unbeaten in four home games this season, winning both of their last two. They lost this fixture 2-1 last season, but did draw 0-0 at home to Real Madrid in April.
Karlan Grant (Huddersfield) to score v Millwall (15:00)
Despite Huddersfield failing to a win a game this season, Grant has scored five goals in eight matches.
The 22-year-old leads the way for shots inside the penalty area in Huddersfield’s squad, and is an established penalty-taker.
Millwall are yet to keep a clean sheet away from home this season, shipping nine in their last four away games.
Casimir Ninga (Angers) to score v Amiens (19:00)
Ninga scored a hat-trick as a second-half substitute in Angers’ last home match.
That resulted in him earning his first start of the season at Toulouse on Wednesday, in which he had five shots and laid on a simple goal for a team-mate when he could have shot himself.
Somebody so involved in Angers’ dangerous attack has to be backed to score against Amiens, who are yet to keep a clean sheet in three away games.
Habib Diallo (Metz) to score v Toulouse (19:00)
Diallo has scored five goals in seven appearances this season, including one in each of his last two.
The 24-year-old ranks fourth for shots per game and xG in Ligue 1.
Toulouse have conceded eight goals in four away games this season.
