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.
BTTS in Blackburn v Brentford, Norwich v Leeds, Forest Green v Swindon and Liverpool (-1) to beat Brighton: £10 at 11/2*
Blackburn and Brentford both drew their games 2-2 on Wednesday, so backing goals between the two at Ewood Park is a no brainer.
Leeds have scored and conceded in all of their matches bar a home win over Rotherham, while Swindon’s four league matches have finished 3-2, 4-1, 3-2 and 2-2.
Liverpool should bring this bet in by hammering Brighton. The Reds have won five of their last six home league games by more than one goal, including a 3-0, two 4-0s and a 5-0.
Fulham to beat Burnley: £10 at 1/1*
Fulham produced a decent showing against Tottenham last weekend and were unfortunate to be edged out at home to Crystal Palace on the opening day.
With Burnley yet to win any of their six matches this season inside 90 minutes and coming into the game after another Europa League schlep, it’s set up for the Cottagers to claim their first points of the season.
BTTS in Bournemouth v Everton and Norwich v Leeds, under 2.5 goals in Huddersfield v Cardiff and Liverpool (-2): £10 at 7/1*
A bit of a mish-mash from me this week, made up of a few hunches that just make sense.
Both teams have scored in all of Everton’s games so far this season. I don’t see that record ending against Bournemouth, who both scored and conceded in 10 of their final 13 games last season.
The same goes for Norwich and Leeds, with goals at both ends coming in all but two of their 10 games combined so far.
I don’t think anybody is expecting many goals between Huddersfield and Cardiff, while I’m also predicting a comfortable win for Liverpool.
The Reds conceded just one goal in home matches against the bottom 11 sides last season, while they’ve also scored three or more in five of their last seven league games at Anfield.
BTTS in Bournemouth v Everton, under 2.5 goals in Huddersfield v Cardiff, Dortmund to beat Leipzig and BTTS: £10 at 6/1*
Everton have a 100 per cent BTTS record from their first two games of the season, and I’m expecting more goals when they play Bournemouth, who have netted four so far.
There shouldn’t be much goalmouth action in Huddersfield’s game against Cardiff, given that the two sides have scored just once between them this season.
Dortmund and Leipzig are two of Germany’s best attacking sides, so I fancy BTTS in their Bundesliga opener.
The hosts should take three points, as Leipzig lost manager Ralph Hasenhuttl and star player Naby Keita over the summer.
Sunderland, Bradford and Luton to win and Accrington double chance: £10 at 11/1*
Sunderland’s 4-1 win away to Gillingham put them on 10 points after four games. The Black Cats are settling into life in League One nicely and should be gobbled up at odds against to beat Wimbledon.
Bradford City have had a mixed start to the season, but beat Burton 1-0 at home on Tuesday and should take another three points against Wycombe, who have just two points from four matches.
I expect Luton to improve after playing three of the top four. The Hatters won 2-0 at home to Southend on Tuesday and should beat winless Shrewsbury.
Accrington have seven points from their first four games and I fancy them to earn at least a point at managerless Blackpool.
