Sunday 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 Sunday's matches.
Rochdale to beat Wrexham (12:45)
Wrexham are currently fourth-bottom of the National League and their 1-0 victory over Bromley last weekend was only their third in 18 matches in domestic competition.
The Welsh side had lost three league games on the spin prior to that, while their only other league victory since August came against third-bottom Ebbsfleet last month.
Rochdale have already beaten a Bolton side made up of youth players and League Two Carlisle in cup competitions this season, so should be backed to add another inferior side to the list.
Atalanta to beat Sampdoria (14:00)
Atalanta are fifth in Serie A and, despite a 2-0 defeat to Cagliari, are still worth backing this weekend.
La Dea were unbeaten in eight league games prior to that result and have the second-best away record in the division.
Sampdoria’s 1-0 victory over bottom-of-the-league SPAL was only their first in seven matches.
Atletico Madrid to beat Espanyol to nil (15:00)
Atletico have won 24 of their last 33 matches in all competitions at the Wanda Metropolitano, keeping a clean sheet in 20 of those.
Diego Simeone’s side managed shut-outs in five of their eight home games this season and have conceded seven league goals – the equal-fewest.
Espanyol are second-bottom of La Liga, having scored six league goals – also the equal-fewest – and have lost five of their last six matches.
DRAW NO BET
Liverpool draw no bet v Man City (16:30)
Man City could prove to be the better side across the whole season, but it is a surprise that Liverpool are so underrated in a head-to-head between the two at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are undefeated in 45 consecutive league games at home, a run dating back to April 2017. They have taken four points from two games against City in that time.
Pep Guardiola has not won in three attempts at Anfield as a manager, and has only beaten Liverpool in two of nine meetings overall. The likely loss of Ederson to injury would also be significant.
Lazio v Lecce (14:00)
Lazio have scored 14 goals in five home league games this season, including four against both Torino and Genoa.
They also conceded three at home to Atalanta and have kept only one clean sheet in their last five Serie A games.
BTTS has landed in eight of Lecce’s 11 Serie A games this season, the joint-third most in the division, and they’ve found the net in all five of their away games to date.
Sampdoria v Atalanta (14:00)
Atalanta are the joint-most reliable side in Serie A when it comes to BTTS, with goals at both ends in nine of their 11 games so far.
Gian Piero Gasperini’s side have scored at least twice in all six of their away league games, keeping five clean sheets in the process.
Sampdoria have found the net in three of their last four home league games, with a 0-0 draw with Roma the only exception.
Real Betis v Sevilla (20:00)
BTTS has landed in three of the last four Seville derbies, and there should be plenty of goals when these teams meet again on Sunday.
There have been goals at both ends in nine of Betis’ 12 La Liga matches so far – the joint-most in the division – including all six of their games at the Estadio Benito Villamarin.
Sevilla have scored in eight of their last nine matches in all competitions, failing to find the net only in a 4-0 defeat to Barcelona.
Joaquin Correa (Lazio) to score v Lecce (14:00)
Correa was a successful 3/1 tip to score at Milan last week, and he looks an attractive proposition again on Sunday.
The Argentinian has scored three goals in his last five games, and ranks fourth for xG and shots per game in Serie A.
Lecce haven’t kept a clean sheet in 11 Serie A matches this season, conceding nine goals in away games at Inter, Atalanta and Milan.
Alvaro Morata (Atletico Madrid) to score v Espanyol (15:00)
Morata has scored in five consecutive games for Atletico Madrid.
The Spaniard’s xG per 90-minute figure of 0.94 is comfortably the best of all regular starters in La Liga, with Lionel Messi second on 0.78.
Espanyol conceded three goals in their last away game at Athletic Bilbao, and were beaten 2-1 by Valencia last week.
Andy Delort (Montpellier) to score v Toulouse (16:00)
Delort has scored five goals this season, with three of them coming in his last four appearances.
The Frenchman ranks third to Kylian Mbappe and Neymar for shots per home game and fourth for xG this season.
Toulouse have conceded at least twice in four of their last five away games, and rank bottom for xG against away from home.
