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.
Brentford to beat Wigan (15:00)
Brentford lost 1-0 at home to Huddersfield last weekend, but bear with me.
The Bees had won three on the bounce prior to that defeat, scoring three goals in each of those victories, and remain one of the most creative sides in the Championship, ranking fourth for shots per game.
Wigan are winless in their last three and have scored just one goal that did not come from a set piece or goalkeeping error in their last six matches.
Ipswich to beat Lincoln (15:00)
Ipswich are top of League One, despite having played a game fewer than second-placed Wycombe, and have won 11 of their last 14 matches in all competitions.
The Tractor Boys have lost only one of their eight games at Portman Road this season.
Lincoln are winless in their last nine away games in all competitions, with their points in that sequence coming against relegation candidates AFC Wimbledon and Rochdale.
Burton to beat Salford (15:00)
Salford have won four of their last six matches in League Two, but this price is too good to turn down for a team in a higher division to beat them.
The Ammies have struggled against the better teams in the league this season, having lost three out of three against sides currently in the top six.
Burton have only lost two of their last 11 matches in League One and have the third-best travelling record behind league leaders Ipswich and Rotherham.
Leicester to beat Arsenal (17:30)
Leicester notched their seventh victory in eight matches in all competitions by beating Crystal Palace last Sunday.
Only Liverpool have a better home record than the Foxes, who have only dropped two points in five games at the King Power Stadium this season.
Arsenal lost 1-0 to Sheffield United in their most-recent league away game, while their only victory on the road came against strugglers Newcastle.
Napoli to beat Genoa & BTTS (19:45)
Genoa were beaten 3-1 at home to Udinese and have lost seven of their last nine league games, with BTTS landing in six of those defeats.
Thiago Motta’s side have the second-worst travelling record in Serie A, only taking one point from five matches.
Both sides have scored in Napoli’s last five games in all competitions, while they have lost one in seven at the San Paolo.
Preston v Huddersfield (15:00)
Preston have scored at least twice in seven of their eight home matches this season, with the exception a 1-1 draw with Leeds.
BTTS has landed in all of the last four at Deepdale, including a 3-3, 5-1 and 3-2 in their last four.
Huddersfield are in great form, winning four and drawing three of their last seven games, so should score themselves.
Real Madrid not to beat Eibar (17:30)
Real Madrid have won one of their last four La Liga away games, including a 1-0 defeat at Mallorca last time out.
Zinedine Zidane’s side have won just seven of their last 14 matches in all competitions.
Eibar have won three of their last four home games, including a 3-2 victory over Sevilla.
Jarrod Bowen (Hull) to score v West Brom (15:00)
Bowen is on a phenomenal run, with five of his 10 goals this season coming in his last four games.
He has netted in four of his last six appearances at the KCOM, and ranks fourth for shots per Championship game.
West Brom rank fourth-bottom for shots on target conceded per away game, so should allow their hosts several good opportunities.
Sam Baldock (Reading) to score v Luton (15:00)
Baldock has been in good nick since Mark Bowen was appointed as Reading’s new manager, scoring in both of his last two appearances.
The 30-year-old comfortably leads the way for shots per game in the Royals’ squad, which is good news for Saturday’s game against Luton.
The Hatters have shipped at least two goals in four of their last five away games and concede more shots per away game than any other Championship team.
Victor Osimhen (Lille) to score v Metz (19:00)
After a four-game drought, Osimhen returned to form with a goal at Valencia in the Champions League on Tuesday.
The Nigerian has scored nine goals overall this season, including in six of his side’s eight home matches. He ranks top for xG of any player in Ligue 1.
