Cardiff, Peterborough and Doncaster to win and BTTS in West Brom v Norwich and Sunderland v Luton: £10 at 27/1*
Huddersfield have lost nine on the spin, so Cardiff look like great value at home.
Peterborough, meanwhile, take on a Rochdale side that have lost 4-2, 4-0, 5-0 and 4-0 in their last four matches, while Doncaster have won nine of their last 11 and should beat Wycombe.
BTTS has landed in eight of West Brom’s last 10 league games, so there should be goals at both ends when they meet a Norwich side that has scored 15 in their last seven.
Finally, Luton are the top scorers in League One with 49 goals and should be able to find the net against Sunderland, who have kept just two clean sheets in their last nine.
The Black Cats themselves haven’t failed to score in a league game this season, so this should sail in.
BTTS in Shrewsbury v Charlton and Oldham v Forest Green: £10 at 2/1*
After a mini-break from league football, and with so much transfer activity going on in the EFL, I don’t want to push the boat out too much this week.
BTTS has landed in four of Sam Ricketts’ six League One games in charge of Shrewsbury, while his side have only failed to score in one of nine matches in all competitions.
They take on Charlton, who have scored and conceded in all of their last four.
Oldham lost key striker Sam Surridge this week, but I expect the euphoria of last week’s FA Cup win at Fulham to deliver them at least one goal against Forest Green.
The visitors have scored and conceded in 100 per cent of their 13 league away games this season, so a repeat is an easy bet.
Cardiff to beat Huddersfield: £10 at 5/4*
Cardiff have been thrashed in their last two home matches, but Huddersfield are nowhere near the standard of Manchester United or Tottenham.
The Terriers are bottom of the table, eight points adrift of safety and have lost their last nine matches in all competitions.
I expect that sequence to extend to double figures against Cardiff, who had won four of their previous five at home prior to facing United and Spurs, against Fulham, Brighton, Wolves and Southampton respectively.
West Ham v Arsenal: BTTS, Watford to win or draw, Juventus, Inter Milan and Napoli all to win: £10 at 9/2*
West Ham have scored 10 goals in their last four home matches, so I expect a high-scoring game when they host Arsenal, who are the Premier League’s joint-most reliable BTTS side.
Crystal Palace have only won three home games all season, scoring six goals in total, so Watford look good value to at least take a point from their trip to Selhurst Park.
Juventus, Inter and Napoli have all been handed nice draws in the Coppa Italia, and should progress comfortably.
Hull to win, Gillingham to win or draw, Cheltenham to win or draw & BTTS, BTTS in Oldham v Forest Green: £10 at 19/1*
Hull have won five league games in a row, including a 6-0 victory in their last match at the KCOM. They look a nice price at home to a Sheffield Wednesday side in limbo until Steve Bruce starts next month.
Nigel Clough promised Burton would take the frustrations of their 9-0 loss to Manchester City out on Gillingham this weekend, but I'm not so sure they will.
The Gills aren't bad on the road, only losing four of their last 11 away matches in all competitions, and should have drawn their game at Southend on New Year's Day after having a legitimate goal ruled out (I'm not bitter, honest!).
Cheltenham let me down last week but are unbeaten in 10 home matches in all competitions, with both teams scoring in all five of their league matches during that run.
Tranmere have lost five and drawn one of their last five away games in the league, with goals at both ends in every single one of them.
Finally, both teams have scored in all 13 of Forest Green's away matches in League Two this season.
There have been goals at both ends in 12 of Oldham's 16 games at Boundary Park, with two 3-2s, a 3-1 and a 4-2 in the last five, so this has BTTS written all over it.
