Saturday Betting Guide: Our writers' 10 best football tips
We've compiled our best football tips, including win/draw/win and BTTS, into one bite-size betting preview for Saturday's matches.
Liverpool to beat Bournemouth to nil (12:30)
Liverpool have had a rough week, losing back-to-back games against Watford and Chelsea, but are still worth backing.
The Reds have won each of their last 10 games at Anfield in all competitions, keeping clean sheets in seven of their last eight.
Bournemouth have lost five on the spin away from home, failing to score in four of those, and 10 of their last 12.
Wigan to beat Luton (15:00)
Wigan beat league-leaders West Brom last weekend to record their third straight victory and climb out of the relegation zone for the first time since November.
Paul Cook’s side are unbeaten in their last five league games, while they also beat second-placed Leeds 1-0 last month.
Bottom-of-the-league Luton have picked up recently, but a run of 13 defeats in their last 14 away games in all competitions makes this an easy pick.
Coventry to beat Ipswich (15:00)
Coventry went back to the top of League One following their 1-0 victory over Sunderland last Sunday.
That result extended the Sky Blues’ unbeaten run to 17 matches in all competitions and was their fifth win in six matches.
Ipswich’s 1-0 defeat at home to Fleetwood on Tuesday was their third straight loss and sixth in eight.
MK Dons to beat Doncaster (15:00)
MK Dons come into this on the back of a decent 1-1 draw away to second-placed Rotherham last weekend, but it’s their home form that makes them appealing.
Russell Martin’s side have won seven of their last eight games at Stadium MK, keeping clean sheets in five of those victories.
Doncaster were beaten 1-0 by out-of-form Shrewsbury last time out on the road and have lost three of their last four away games.
PSG to beat Strasbourg & over 2.5 goals (16:30)
PSG hammered in-form Lyon 5-1 away in the Coupe de France in midweek to record their 21st domestic victory in 22 matches.
Given that there have been three or more goals in 17 of those games, it suggests that this one will also tip the balance.
Strasbourg lost 3-0 away to Montpellier last weekend and are winless in three.
Birmingham v Reading
BTTS has landed in nine consecutive Birmingham home matches, including a 4-5, 3-3, two 2-3s and a 2-2.
Pep Clotet’s side also drew 2-2 away at QPR last week, and are playing with the freedom of a team that are almost certain not to go up or down this season.
Reading have scored in seven of their last nine away games, and lost the reverse fixture 3-2 in December.
Crawley v Oldham
Crawley have scored in all but three of their 25 home matches this season, with BTTS landing in four of the last six.
The hosts rank top of League Two for shots per home game.
Oldham’s last four away games have finished 1-1, 2-1, 5-1 and 2-2, while they thrashed Newport 5-0 at home last week.
Matt Doherty (Wolves) to score v Brighton (15:00)
At a much longer price than the two below, this is worth a punt.
Doherty’s adventurous runs often see him end up in the centre of the penalty area, like for goals in both of his last two appearances.
He ranks third to Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota for xG and shots in the box in Wolves’ squad this season.
Cauley Woodrow (Barnsley) v Cardiff (15:00)
Woodrow has scored 15 goals this season, including six in his last eight appearances.
He ranks second in the Championship for shots per game and is an established penalty-taker.
Cardiff have conceded twice in three of their last four games and rank fifth-bottom for shots conceded per away game this season.
Ryan Hardie (Plymouth) to score v Macclesfield (15:00)
Hardie has scored six in 12 since signing for Plymouth in January, including one in each of his last two.
He ranks top for shots per game in the Plymouth squad, despite starting just four of his 12 appearances.
Macclesfield have conceded in 12 consecutive matches, including at least twice in four of their last five.
