BTTS in West Brom v Stoke and Sunderland v Oxford, PSV (-1) to beat Willem II: £10 at 4/1*
West Brom have been involved in a 3-4 and 7-1 already this season, while Stoke have scored and conceded in both of their away games.
Both Sunderland and Oxford are in fine fettle going forward, while PSV have won five of their last six home games by more than one goal.
West Ham v Wolves BTTS, Crystal Palace and Dijon to win: £10 at 5/1*
West Ham should have scored three or four against Arsenal at the weekend, but they also managed to let in three despite Unai Emery’s side not playing particularly well.
I’m expecting plenty of goals when the Hammers host Wolves, who have been pretty good going forward so far.
Palace have lost their last two but were very impressive against Fulham on the opening day, and they should beat Southampton at home.
Dijon have won three out of three this season, including a 4-0 thrashing of Nice last weekend, and that run should continue at home to Caen, who have taken just two points from their three matches.
Crystal Palace to beat Southampton: £10 at 1/1*
Southampton beat Brighton in the EFL Cup in midweek, but I think their form in the Premier League – one draw followed by two defeats – is a better indication of how this match will go.
Palace have played better than their three points from three games suggests. After their opening-day win at Fulham, they were competitive against Liverpool and missed a sitter to earn a point at Watford last weekend.
The Eagles have been impressive at Selhurst Park ever since Roy Hodgson took over, and I fancy them to eke out a narrow win here.
Crystal Palace to win, Brighton to win or draw and BTTS, Man City and over 3.5 goals: £10 at 8/1*
Palace have won five of their last six home games against teams outside the top six and look a steal of a price to beat Southampton, who have an erroneous linesman's flag against Burnley to thank for their only point so far.
Fulham have scored in their last 13 away games in a row, so should be good for a goal at the Amex, but will struggle to beat a Brighton side that had the best home record outside the top six last season.
Finally, Newcastle have lost their last six visits to the Etihad with over 3.5 goals in all of them, and I can't see a reason why Saturday will be any different.
Everton, Wigan, Portsmouth, Sunderland and Luton all to win: £10 at 13/1*
An underwhelming opening few weeks to this competition have forced me to change tactic, so I’m dividing my stake this week.
Everton should breeze past a Huddersfield side that look one of the worst the Premier League has seen, while Wigan can get back to winning ways against poor travellers Rotherham.
Taking further inspiration from my Football League five-fold, I’m backing Portsmouth to make it five wins out of six in the league at home to bottom-of-the-league Plymouth.
Sunderland and Luton have both found form as well and should take all three points against Oxford and Wycombe respectively.
