Swansea and Northampton to win, BTTS in Shrewsbury v Peterborough and Oldham v Bury: £10 at 19/2*
I’ve been the odd goal away in the last few weeks, so I’m fairly confident that a big winner is on its way.
Jos Luhukay is on the verge of the sack as Sheffield Wednesday manager, and I expect Swansea to inflict the defeat that seals his fate.
Northampton have been really impressive in League Two recently, and are another EFL home team I fancy to take all three points on Saturday.
Only Sunderland have been involved in more BTTS matches than Peterborough this season, and another should follow at Shrewsbury.
Both Oldham and Bury have been full of goals recently, so I’m surprised at the price for BTTS when they meet.
Leeds to win to nil and Swansea, Luton, Dortmund and PSV all to win: £10 at 17/1*
After a 24/1 winner last week, I’m feeling confident.
Bolton are the lowest scorers in the Championship and have picked up just three points in their last 11 league games. They will also be missing the suspended Sammy Ameobi and are entrenched in another dispute over the late payment of wages.
Leeds have won six of their last eight games and have already beaten both of the bottom two to nil, so they should walk this one.
I’m also backing Swansea to make the most of Sheffield Wednesday’s torrid situation while, in League One, Luton are irresistable against out-of-form Coventry.
On the continent, both Dortmund and PSV are running away with their respective leagues and are worth throwing into my coupon to beat Werder Bremen and Heracles to extract a little more value.
PSV to win or draw and BTTS, Arsenal to win, Young Boys to win or draw and BTTS: £10 at 15/2*
Billy’s huge win last week has encouraged me to go slightly bigger than I have been of late.
Heracles have scored 21 goals in seven home league games this season, so they should find the net when they host PSG this weekend.
The Dutch champions have won 14 of 15 in the league, though, so I’d expect them to avoid defeat.
I fancy Arsenal to beat a Southampton side that are without a win in 12 league matches.
Young Boys have won 15 of 17 in the Swiss Super League this season, including their last six, and now face BTTS kings Neuchatel Xamax, whose last five games have all finished either 2-2, 2-3 or 3-3.
Ashley Young to be booked v Liverpool: £10 at 6/4*
I’m lifting this from my Liverpool v Man Utd #BYW: Young has received five yellow cards in the Premier League already this season and has been booked on United’s last two trips to Anfield.
Preston and Charlton to win, West Ham and Aston Villa to win or draw & BTTS: £10 at 18/1*
Millwall are the Championship's worst away side, so Preston look great value at Deepdale.
They're unbeaten in five at home, scoring four goals in each of their three victories during that run.
The same goes for Charlton against struggling Wimbledon, having won five of last six and six of last seven at the Valley.
West Ham have only lost to Manchester City in their last seven Premier League games, with both teams scoring in five of the other six.
I fancy that run to continue against a Fulham side that ship goals for fun and have only won one of their last 13.
Finally, Villa are unbeaten in six with their last two at Villa Park finishing 4-2 and 5-5.
