Tenner On: Our writers battle for weekend profit
Armed each week with nothing but a £10 stake and their own judgement, the Insider editorial team compete to be crowned top tipster.
Wolves, Wigan and Luton to win: £5 at 5/1*
My treble is comprised of the best teams in each EFL division.
Wolves and Luton are dominant leaders of the Championship and League Two respectively, while Wigan could follow suit if they come through at Blackpool.
Swansea, Derby Gillingham, Valencia and Napoli to win: £5 at 44/1*
Swansea didn’t let me down against Huddersfield last week, while Derby should beat Sheffield Wednesday, who have gone stale.
I am assured by Tom Clee that Gillingham have improved markedly since the removal of Peter Taylor as interim boss, and I agree that there will never be a better time to back them than at home to relegation-threatened Northampton.
Valencia and Napoli are doing bits in La Liga and Serie A, and should round us off.
Double chance: Watford and Arsenal: £5 at
I like Watford a lot, so much so that this is also my Free Bet Club pick.
The Hornets have taken four points from Liverpool and Arsenal this season, and are unbeaten in four matches away from home.
Chelsea are winless in three in all competitions, and have already been turned over by Burnley and Crystal Palace in the league.
Swansea and Arsenal to win: £5 at 5/1*
Swansea beat Huddersfield comfortably last week, and should register more wins now Tammy Abraham is scoring regularly.
Leicester are without a top-flight win since August, and their players’ fondness of Craig Shakespeare makes me think his sacking will hurt their morale, rather than improve it.
Arsenal were beaten by the better team at Watford last weekend, but their recent form has otherwise been decent, while their Europa League commitments are moot, given Everton were also in action in the same competition.
The Toffees are not very good, and Ronald Koeman’s looks like a dead man walking. Away win.
Manchester United (-1), Wolves, Shrewsbury and Dortmund all to win: £10 at 12/1*
A safe bet at great value will see me climb the leaderboard.
Manchester United won 4-0 against West Ham, Swansea and Everton, while Huddersfield were beaten by the same scoreline against Tottenham.
Wolves and Shrewsbury are both leading their respective divisions and have proved to be worth backing most weeks.
Dortmund are still top of the Bundesliga after a difficult week and are better than a Frankfurt side that have lost two out of three at home.
Stoke, Gillingham and Luton all to win: £5 at 8/1*
Stoke have already beaten Arsenal and drawn with Manchester United at the Britannia, and will be smarting from their hammering at the hands of an almost-superhuman Manchester City last weekend.
I’m not going to get a better chance to tip my team Gillingham all season, after an encouraging couple of results against two decent sides under interim boss Steve Lovell.
Beat Northampton – one of only two teams beneath us in the table – and I reckon the job is his.
Finally, Luton have scored 11 goals in their last two, while Crawley have lost their last four at home.
Over 2.5 goals in Barnsley v Hull, Bradford v Charlton and Swindon v Wycombe: £5 at 5/1*
I’m splitting my stake this week, with three games that promise goals a nice little insurance plan.
Hull and Wycombe’s games have seen more goals than any other side in their respective divisions so far this season.
Bradford and Charlton are two decent sides that seem to have forgotten how to keep clean sheets in recent weeks.
Napoli to win and BTTS, PSG to win and BTTS - £10 at 6/1*
I’ll admit it: I’m panicking.
A few unlucky results (and some not so unlucky ones) have left me in the lurch, but, thankfully, I’ve found an absolute banker here.
Napoli have won eight of eight in Serie A, and should beat an Inter team that needed a dodgy penalty to beat AC Milan last week.
The Nerazzurri have scored eight in four away games this year, though, so BTTS looks a certainty.
Likewise when PSG travel to Marseille, who have scored in all eight of their home matches this season.
L’OM will find the net again on Sunday, but I still fancy Unai Emery’s side to beat them pretty easily.
