Tenner On: Our writers battle to win most weekend profit
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.
Leeds, Bradford and MK Dons all to win and BTTS in Forest Green v Bury: £10 at 17/1*
Stoke have lost two from two since Nathan Jones took over and I think it will take a brave man to bet against Leeds in light of Marcelo Bielsa laying bare his pre-match preparations on each of his opponents in the wake of Spygate.
In League One, Bradford City have won their last four league games at Valley Parade without conceding a goal and can get the better of a Southend side that has lost three of their last four and had 12 players missing for last week’s match.
MK Dons have second-best home record in League Two and have won seven of their last eight league games at Stadium MK, so shouldn’t have any trouble against Crewe, who have the worst away record.
Finally, Bury and Forest Green have scored a combined total of 20 goals in their last four matches. I’m expecting an entertaining affair in Gloucestershire to bring this coupon home.
Charlton and MK Dons to win, BTTS in Forest Green v Bury: £10 at 9/2*
Charlton’s fantastic front two of Lyle Taylor and Karlan Grant has fired them to five wins from six league games at The Valley, so I expect them to see off an Accrington side that is on the slide.
Similarly, MK Dons – who have won seven of their last eight League Two home matches – should be too good for Crewe.
Finally, I expect Bury – whose last two games have finished 2-4 and 4-3 – to score and concede at Forest Green.
Dele Alli to score against Fulham: £10 at 11/5*
Alli is without a goal in five games, but he should have scored at least one of the three presentable opportunities he had against Manchester United last weekend.
He is likely to further forward against Fulham on Sunday in the absence of Kane and Heung-Min Son. That, coupled with the fact that he’s facing a goalkeeper not named David De Gea, makes me think he’ll end his five-game goal drought.
Dortmund to win or draw and BTTS, Inter to win and PSV (-1): £10 at 17/4*
Dortmund have only lost once in 17 Bundesliga matches this season, and I fancy them to take at least a point from what should be a high-scoring game against Leipzig, who have lost three of their last six.
Inter have won seven successive home league games, keeping clean sheets in their last six, and will surely see off a Sassuolo side coming off back-to-back Serie A defeats.
PSV have won five of their last six Eredivisie matches by at least two goals, and now face an Emmen side who they beat 6-0 at home earlier this season.
Norwich to win or draw & BTTS, Hull to win or draw, MK Dons to win, BTTS in Forest Green v Bury: £10 at 11/1*
I'm leaning on my Friday night #BetYourWay to kick things off.
Norwich have lost one of their last 15 with both teams scoring in 11, so the Canaries double chance & BTTS looks a nice bet against Birmingham, who have netted in their last nine league away games.
Hull haven't lost in nine Championship matches, winning their last six in a row. They're easily capable of claiming at least a point against a Villa side that have only won one of their last eight.
Sharing tips hasn't always worked out for us in this competition, but I also can't ignore MK Dons. They have the second-best home record in League Two while Crewe are the division's worst away team.
The same goes for BTTS in Forest Green's game against Bury, despite their baffling 0-0 draw last weekend.
In 21 league matches before that, they'd failed to score just twice and kept only two clean sheets.
