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.
Our football tips for Saturday come from the Premier League, EFL and around Europe.
Birmingham to beat Sheffield Wednesday (15:00)
No Championship team has picked up fewer points than Sheffield Wednesday’s five over the last 10 league games.
Garry Monk’s side have lost seven matches in that period, including a 1-0 defeat at bottom-of-the-league Luton in their most-recent away game.
Birmingham are unbeaten in 10 in all competitions and, although they’ll be without on-loan striker Scott Hogan, represent great value.
Gillingham to beat Lincoln (15:00)
Gillingham beat Southend 1-0 on Tuesday to extend their unbeaten run to 14 league games – the longest in the EFL.
Steve Evans’ side have won four of their last five to move to within four points of the play-offs.
Lincoln lost 4-3 to Accrington last weekend and have earned just one point from their last six league games.
Sunderland to beat Bristol Rovers to nil (15:00)
Fifth-placed Sunderland’s 1-0 victory over Oxford last weekend was their eighth in their last 11 league games.
Included in that sequence are four wins from five at the Stadium of Light, while Phil Parkinson’s side have kept clean sheets in seven of their last eight league matches.
Bristol Rovers are on a seven-match winless run away from home stretching back to mid-December, failing to score in five of those games.
Wycombe to beat Tranmere to nil (15:00)
Tranmere played out a goalless draw with out-of-form Bristol Rovers in midweek, extending their winless run to 10 league games.
Micky Mellon’s side have failed to score in any of their last six in all competitions, only once managing more than two shots on target in that sequence.
Wycombe have the best home record in League One, having won 12 and lost only two of their 17 matches at Adams Park.
Lille to beat Toulouse to nil (19:00)
Bottom-of-the-league Toulouse were beaten 2-0 at home to Nice last weekend, meaning they have lost 15 and drawn one of their last 16 matches in all competitions.
Denis Zanko’s side are the lowest scorers in Ligue 1 with just 21 goals, failing to net in their last five matches.
Lille have won five of their last seven home matches in all competitions, with their only defeats coming against Paris Saint-Germain and in-form Marseille.
Fleetwood v Portsmouth (15:00)
Both teams have scored in six of Fleetwood’s last seven at Highbury Stadium after they beat Peterborough 2-1 last week.
There have also been goals at both ends in five of their last six home matches against top-half sides.
Portsmouth have scored at least twice in seven of their last eight matches.
Walsall v Port Vale (15:00)
BTTS has landed in seven of Walsall’s last nine home games, including in last week’s 3-2 win over Northampton.
Darrell Clarke’s side have scored in 15 of their last 17 matches overall.
Port Vale have scored three goals in three of their last five games, including a 3-2 win at Colchester last time out on the road.
West Brom not to beat Bristol City (15:00)
This is a skinny price for West Brom to win this match, given they’ve only won one of their last five matches against top-half opposition.
Bristol City have won four of their last six, and were only narrowly beaten 1-0 at Leeds last week.
Lee Johnson’s side have only lost four of their last 16 at Ashton Gate, and are unbeaten in four of their seven matches against the Championship’s current top six.
Mason Mount (Chelsea) to score v Tottenham (12:30)
Mount looked like he needed a break over Christmas and January, but put in an improved performance off the bench against Manchester United on Monday.
Nobody had more shots than the 21-year-old in that match (three), while only Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic – both of whom could be absent – have had more attempts on goal per league game for Chelsea this season.
Tottenham have conceded twice in all of their away games against the Big Six and Leicester this season, and their defensive tactics should allow Mount chances to shoot from distance.
Jamie Murphy (Burton) to score v Southend (15:00)
Murphy has scored in four of his last five appearances, including twice inside the last fortnight.
He can continue that run against Southend, who have only kept one home clean sheet in 18 matches at Roots Hall this season – against 21st-placed Tranmere.
Sol Campbell’s side have conceded 15 goals in their last eight games, and will field an emergency loan in goal.
