Brentford, Wigan, Mansfield and Notts County all to win - £5 at 17/2*

All four of these EFL sides should be far too strong for their opponents on Saturday.

Wigan and Notts County are well clear in the automatic positions in League One and League Two, while Brentford and Mansfield host lowly opposition.

Plymouth, Crawley and Chesterfield all to win - £5 at 60/1*

This is a massive long shot, but all three of these teams are capable of springing a surprise this weekend.

Plymouth’s position in the League One relegation zone is false. The Pilgrims have won four of their last seven in the league.

Crawley beat Mansfield last week, and go to 22nd-place Crewe, while Chesterfield are on the march and will soon win away after consecutive 2-2 draws.



Stoke v West Ham BTTS: £10 at

This is a safer take on my Free Bet Club pick.

The Potters’ defence is the worst in the Premier League, having conceded 16 goals in their last seven matches.

But Mark Hughes’ side do score regularly at home, with Chelsea and Liverpool the only clubs to leave Stoke having kept a clean sheet.



Leicester, Bristol City and Wigan all to win, Manchester City double chance and BTTS: £10 at 12/1*

Two late winners, two goalless draws and two leads lost means Palace have not really convinced during their six-game unbeaten run.

I think they’ll come unstuck against Leicester, who are flying under Claude Puel with four wins in a row.

Bristol City should continue their recent winning streak at home to a flaky Forest side that have lost five of their last six on the road.

AFC Wimbledon have only won one of their last eight home games in the league, so won’t be looking forward to hosting leaders Wigan who are pulling away at the top.

Finally, I’m bumping up the odds with my Free Bet Club tip in the evening kick-off.

City are yet to lose this season having scored in every single game, while Spurs have only failed to find the net in three of their 25 games in all competitions.



Burnley and Sampdoria to win, Atalanta v Lazio BTTS: £10 on at 17/2

Burnley have won six of their last eight games, only failing to beat Leicester and Arsenal, and yet they’re still 9/4 to beat a Brighton side that have lost three in a row and are winless in five at home.

I can’t turn down that kind of value.

Sampdoria are also a nice price to win at home to Sassuolo. Marco Giampaolo’s side have won six of seven at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris, losing only to Lazio.

I’m rounding off the treble with both teams to score in Lazio’s trip to Atalanta.

Lazio are Serie A’s second-highest scorers, and they’re playing a side that have found the net in every home game this season.



Leicester, Burnley, Fulham and Bradford all to win and West Ham double chance: £5 on at 65/1*

I’ll admit this is ambitious, but if you don’t dream then nothing happens.

Leicester and Burnley both look good to continue their excellent form against bottom-half sides.

West Ham have taken four points from games against Chelsea and Arsenal, so I fancy them to get something from a Stoke side that has lost four out of five.

In the Championship, Fulham are too tempting to ignore at that price, given Sunderland haven’t won at home in over a year.

Finally, Bradford have the best away record in League One and have already taken both Wigan and Shrewsbury’s unbeaten home records this season.

Southend are the only remaining side in the division yet to lose on their own patch, but I fancy the Bantams to change that.

Chelsea, Watford, Brentford and Wigan all to win: £5 on at 6/1*

My second bet is just to keep my total ticking over.

Southampton were abject against Leicester and it won’t get any easier for them at Stamford Bridge, so that should be a home win.

Huddersfield can’t play away and have lost six of their last seven on the road in all competitions without even scoring.

Barnsley are in dire form, and will lose again.

Finally, Wigan are the best team in League One and should stroll home against struggling AFC Wimbledon.
