Tenner On: Our writers compete for weekend profit
Armed each week with nothing but a £10 stake and their own judgement, the Insider editorial team battle to be crowned top tipster.
Over 2.5 goals in Leicester v Manchester City, Luton and Sevilla both to win: £10 at 10/3*
Manchester City tend to come up with over 2.5 goals themselves – in seven of their last eight league matches, in fact – but away at Leicester, three or more goals in the match is a certainty.
Luton have won five of their last seven at home, while Sevilla are a great bet to win at Celta Vigo, for reasons explained here.
Burnley to beat Swansea -
This is another conservative selection from me, the Jose Mourinho of Tenner On.
Burnley recorded back-to-back wins before the international break, against Newcastle and Southampton respectively, and should make that a hat-trick against struggling Swansea.
Paul Clement’s side have lost three successive games in the league, and have lost five of their last six.
Manchester City, Chelsea and Wolves all to win: £10 at 14/5*
Manchester City are by far and away the best team in the Premier League at the moment, so Leicester don’t stand a chance.
Similarly, Chelsea are facing a side they should easily put away.
In the Championship, league leaders Wolves shouldn’t be troubled too much by mid-table Reading.
See you next week when I’m back in the black.
Lyon to beat Montpellier, Inter to beat Atalanta and BTTS, Sampdoria v Juventus BTTS: £10 at 7/1*
Last week’s win almost brought me back into the black, and this European treble should complete the comeback.
Lyon have won six successive games and are up 15-0 on aggregate over their last four, and they’re good value to see off Montpellier at home.
Inter have been dominant at home with five wins from six, although they have conceded five in their last three at the Giuseppe Meazza.
Expect a high-scoring win for the Nerazzurri against Atalanta, who are yet to win on the road this season but have both scored and conceded in every game.
Finally, I’m going for BTTS when Juventus travel to Sampdoria.
The hosts have won five of five at home and scored two or more in every game, while Juve have scored in eight successive matches, keeping just one clean sheet.
Burnley and under 2.5 goals, Manchester City and over 2.5 goals, over 2.5 goals in Fulham v Derby: £10 at 11/1*
I was tempted go under 3.5 on this first selection, but figured it was worth the risk considering that a) no game at Turf Moor has seen more than two goals this season and b) Swansea have mustered the fewest attempts of any team in the top flight so far.
Burnley have only lost one game since August – away to Manchester City – and I fancy them to grind out another three points here.
Conversely, I toyed with going over 3.5 in City’s game, but Claude Puel’s natural conservatism and some potential lethargy following the international break mean I’m playing it slightly safer.
I’m bumping up the odds with what looks a safe bet in the Championship.
Derby have only failed to score twice this season while Fulham haven’t kept a clean sheet since August.
The Cottagers haven’t scored in a couple but did find the net in their previous 10, so over 2.5 between them shouldn’t be too much to ask.
