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 and EFL.
Leeds to beat Hull to nil (12:30)
Leeds are on the road to recovery after a mid-season wobble and have won three straight games by a score of 1-0.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side have restricted their opponents to a maximum of two shots on target in each of those victories.
Hull are on a 10-match winless run in all competitions and have taken two points from their last nine league games.
Barnsley to beat Reading (15:00)
The great escape is on for Barnsley, who beat Hull 1-0 on Wednesday to notch their third straight win.
That result took them off the bottom of the table and to within three points of safety. Gerhard Struber’s side have also beaten Middlesbrough and third-placed Fulham in that sequence.
Reading have managed just one victory in their last 11 matches in all competitions and were beaten 3-0 at home to Wigan in midweek, despite their visitors having previously won two away games all season.
Port Vale to beat Scunthorpe (15:00)
Port Vale beat fellow play-off contenders Colchester 3-0 in their last home game and have won four of their last six matches at Vale Park.
The Valiants have only lost one of their 17 league games at home this season and are unbeaten in seven.
Scunthorpe have lost three away games in a row in all competitions and their only victory in six on the road came against sixth-bottom Oldham last month.
Walsall to beat Stevenage (15:00)
Bottom-of-the-league Stevenage are on their fourth manager of the season and have lost eight consecutive matches in all competitions.
Boro are on an 11-match winless run at home and have managed to score two goals in their last nine matches.
Walsall are unbeaten in four matches after drawing 2-2 with in-form Port Vale last weekend and look a big price.
Liverpool to beat Watford to nil (17:30)
Liverpool have taken 79 points from an available 81 in the Premier League this season.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have also kept 10 clean sheets in their last 12 league games and have conceded 17 goals – eight fewer than any other side.
Watford have taken one point from their last four matches and are the equal-lowest scorers in the league with 24.
Bradford v Plymouth (15:00)
BTTS has landed in all of Bradford’s four matches since Stuart McCall was reappointed as manager earlier this month.
The Bantams beat Stevenage 3-1 in their last match at Valley Parade and posted an xG figure of 2.3 (experimental361) in last week’s 2-1 defeat at Newport.
Plymouth have scored in six of their last seven away matches, netting three goals in three of them.
Morecambe v Crewe (15:00)
Morecambe have scored in all but two of their last 17 home games, including all of the last 10.
BTTS has landed in eight of those 10, and in their last three home matches against top-half teams.
Crewe have scored and conceded in eight consecutive away games, with six of them featuring three or more goals.
Burnley draw no bet v Newcastle (15:00)
There is pressure is on Newcastle manager Steve Bruce, after his side failed to score for the fourth time in five matches at Crystal Palace last week.
Excluding second-half stoppage time, Bruce’s side have scored one goal and conceded 11 in their last seven league matches, only winning one of them.
Burnley are in the hunt for Champions League qualification after winning four of their last five games, including away victories at Manchester United and Southampton.
Aleksandar Mitrovic (Fulham) to score v Preston (15:00)
An odds-on price still holds some value when it comes to backing the Championship’s top goalscorer to hit the net.
Mitrovic has scored in five of his last six appearances, including a last-minute winner against Swansea on Wednesday. He ranks second for shots and shots inside the box per Championship game this season.
Preston have only kept two clean sheets in their last 13 matches, and lost 2-0 at West Brom on Tuesday.
Callum Robinson (West Brom) to score v Wigan (15:00)
The only player to have taken more shots per game than Mitrovic is Robinson.
The forward had five attempts on goal in West Brom’s 2-0 win over Preston on Tuesday, having scored in both of their previous games.
Wigan have conceded twice in four of their last six away games, so these look like great odds.
