Tenner On: Our writers do 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.
BTTS: Hannover v Dortmund, Hoffenheim v M’gladbach, Bordeaux v Monaco & Rotherham to win - £5 at 9/2*
I’m very confident about all three European BTTS tips, for reasons explained here.
Rotherham have won their last five home league games, and should see off Gillingham.
Watford, Wolves, Charlton, Luton and Port Vale to win - £5 at 48/1*
In-form Watford should take advantage of Stoke’s dreadful away record, while Wolves will always be worth backing at an odds-against price.
Charlton, Luton and Port Vale are all in good form and have winnable home matches.
Arsenal and Watford to win: £10 at 6/4*
Two losses in my last two outings mean it’s time to grind out a result this weekend.
Arsenal are four from four when it comes to beating Premier League fodder at the Emirates this season, and that sequence should be extended to five against Swansea on Saturday.
Watford were excellent at Chelsea last weekend and would have won the game were it not for poor finishing.
The Hornets should beat a Stoke side that are yet to win away from home this season (three losses, one defeat). Back them to do so at odds-against while you still can.
Watford, Fulham, Wolves and Shrewsbury all to win: £10 at 17/1*
In a similar vein to everyone else, I’m backing Watford. The Hornets were unlucky to lose to Chelsea last week and should put away a Stoke side that are awful on the road.
In the Championship, Fulham have the easiest game of the weekend and Wolves are far and away the best team in the division.
Finally, Shrewsbury have dropped just eight points during their 15-match unbeaten run and are great value to take another three points against out-of-form Peterborough.
Watford, Wolves and Luton all to win: £10 at 8/1*
Let’s stop messing around, shall we?
I need a win to boost my balance and reckon this is the bet to do just that.
Stoke have only picked up one point on the road so far, and even that was owed to a horrible Ahmed Hegazi error at the Hawthorns.
Watford have been excellent this season, so an easy home win ought to be on the cards.
QPR haven’t won in seven and have kept just one clean sheet in 13.
They don’t have much hope against a Wolves team that are top of the Championship and scoring goals for fun.
Luton also lead the way in League Two, with seven wins and two draws in their last nine.
They average well over three per game at Kenilworth Road so should blow away a Coventry side who haven’t scored in four.
