Armed with a £10 stake, our writers put forth their football tips in an attempt to be crowned the week's top tipster.
Tenner On is our writers' weekly football tips competition.
The rules are simple: each writer is given £10 to place any bet(s) they like over the weekend. At the end of the season, the writer with the most profit is crowned the Insider's top tipster.
Forest Green to win, BTTS in Exeter v Bury, Macclesfield v Colchester and Oldham v Crewe: £10 at 15/2*
With the FA Cup disrupting the Championship and League One schedule, my focus is entirely on League Two this week.
Forest Green may have lost their last two matches, but they are still a very generous price to beat Yeovil, who have lost five consecutive games.
BTTS has landed in Bury’s last seven matches, including a 2-4, 4-3, 5-2, 3-3 and 2-3.
Macclesfield have scored and conceded in eight of their last nine, and take on Colchester, who have scored seven goals in their last two games.
Oldham have scored 12 goals in their last five home games, while Crewe have scored and conceded in six of their last seven.
Luton to win & over 1.5 goals, Scunthorpe to win and over 2.5 goals in Heerenveen v PSV: £10 at 9/1*
Luton are the hottest team in the EFL at the moment, having gone 19 league games without defeat and won their last five. Their last five results read: 3-0, 3-0, 3-2, 1-0 and 4-0 and I can’t see them being troubled by Fleetwood.
Scunthorpe are also in excellent form with six victories from their last eight matches. They are a great price to beat Gillingham, who lost 4-1 last weekend and are without a win in five in all competitions.
There have been fewer than 2.5 goals in just two of PSV and Heerenveen’s last 22 matches combined, so this looks like a good opportunity to bump up the price of my acca this weekend.
Brentford to beat Swansea: £10 at 7/4*
Adam Drury reckons that Brentford are a quality side, so I'm prepared to place my faith in them this weekend.
The Bees have won six of their last eight, with Swansea losing two of their last three.
Hoffenheim and Eintracht Frankfurt both to win or draw & BTTS, BTTS in Lucerne v Lugano and Basel v Sion: 9/1*
Hoffenheim – the Bundesliga’s most reliable BTTS side - came back from 3-0 down to draw with Dortmund (and ruin my Tenner On) last weekend.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see a similar result against Hannover, who are without an away win since October 2017 but have scored in seven successive matches on the road.
Frankfurt have scored in 12 of their 13 home games this season in all competitions, and should take at least a point from the visit of Borussia Monchengladbach.
BMG have also found the net in nine of their 11 away matches, so it’s safe to expect a few goals here.
I’ve been all over the BTTS market in the Swiss Super League this season, and this weekend is no different. Lucerne v Lugano and Basel v Sion are both bankers.
West Brom, Preston and Colchester all to win or draw & BTTS, BTTS in Oldham v Crewe: £10 at 18/1*
Aston Villa and West Brom are the Championship's two most reliable BTTS sides.
The Baggies have only lost two of their last 15 league games, while Villa have won one of their last seven at home.
Preston have the division's second-highest home BTTS percentage.
They've only lost one of their last 11 league games at Deepdale (with BTTS in all but two), while Forest have failed to win any of their last seven away.
Colchester have scored three goals in four of their last six games, and three more across the other two.
BTTS has landed in all of Macclesfield's last nine matches but, having shipped nine goals in their last three, I can't see them taking all three points.
There have been goals at both ends in six of Crewe's last seven and all of Oldham's last five.
The Railwaymen are in great form, but the Paul Scholes effect at Boundary Park on Tuesday night means I'll swerve the double chance market here.
