Doncaster, Luton, Forest Green and Lincoln all to win, BTTS in Morecambe v Colchester: £10 at 13/1*
I have a nice lead after three consecutive profitable weeks, so I’m prepared to take a few risks this time around.
Against my natural instincts, I have backed four EFL home favourites to win. I am half expecting the standard set of shock results to let me down, but the reasoning behind all of them is solid.
In League One, Doncaster take on a poor Gillingham side, while Luton are excellent at home.
A division down, Forest Green and Lincoln both look well set for promotion pushes, while Morecambe and Colchester have been involved in several high-scoring matches recently.
PSV (-2), Napoli to win, Ajax to win or draw and BTTS: 9/2*
PSV have won every home league game this season by at least two goals, a trend that will surely continue against 14th-placed Emmen, who lost 5-0 to Ajax earlier this season.
Speaking of Ajax, I fancy them to take at least a point from their trip to Heerenveen, who have won just one of their last seven. The hosts have scored in every match this campaign, though, so double chance and BTTS looks the best bet.
Finally, I’m pinching a tip from Saturday Night Fiver. Napoli have won six of their eight league games and should see off Udinese, who have lost three on the bounce.
Bournemouth and Everton to win: £10 at 9/5*
Bournemouth have won four and drawn one of their five home fixtures in all competitions this season. Eddie Howe’s in-form side should beat Southampton, who are winless in five and not very good at football.
Everton are also in good nick after recording back-to-back wins before the international break. I fancy Marco Silva’s side to make it three from three at home to Crystal Palace, who have suffered defeats to Bournemouth and Wolves in their last two outings.
Barnsley, Lincoln, MK Dons and Exeter all to win: £10 at 11/1*
Barnsley are officially the most dominant team in League One, having had the most shots on target in the division (despite playing a game less) while also allowing the fewest on their own goal.
Having thrashed Peterborough 4-0 in their last away game, the Tykes should enjoy their trip to Charlton, who are winless in three having conceded nine goals.
In League Two, Lincoln have won 10 of their 13 league games so far, while Cambridge have lost nine of theirs.
MK Dons have only lost once in the league this season and have won their last three home matches to nil.
Grimsby have beaten two poor sides in their last two league matches, but had lost six in a row before that. They will struggle against an Exeter side that are unbeaten in seven, winning five.
Portsmouth, Exeter, Lincoln and Celtic all to win and Liverpool to win to nil v Huddersfield: £10 at 16/1*
I’m relying heavily on my weekly EFL five-fold, which came in at 63/1 last Saturday, to climb out of the canyon I currently find myself in.
Portsmouth and Lincoln are both top of League One and League Two respectively, so I’m happy to get with them against Fleetwood and Cambridge.
Exeter, meanwhile, are second in League Two and should cruise past Grimsby.
Celtic are worth backing to beat Hibs at home, despite their poor start to the season. Brendan Rodgers’ side have won each of their last three domestic games, so I’m not worried about them.
Finally, Liverpool have won all four of their games against bottom-half sides this season to nil. Huddersfield are the lowest scorers in the Premier League and are set for a tough evening.
