Wednesday Betting Guide: Our writers' 5 best football tips
We've compiled our best football tips, including win/draw/win and BTTS, into one bite-size betting preview for Wednesday's EFL Cup and Serie A matches.
Liverpool to beat Arsenal & BTTS (19:45)
Liverpool made it 14 straight victories in all competitions at Anfield by beating Tottenham 2-1 on Sunday.
The Reds have won seven and drawn one of their last eight matches, but are yet to keep a clean sheet at home this season.
Arsenal have won just one of their last five away games and were beaten 3-1 at Anfield in the league in August.
Aston Villa to beat Wolves (19:45)
Wolves’ Premier League and Europa League commitments mean they will rest several first-team players for this game.
So, at odds-against, Villa – who have fielded strong sides in this competition so far – look a great bet to beat a team of youngsters.
Dean Smith’s side are unbeaten in four home games, and have won three of their last five in all competitions.
BTTS & over 2.5 goals in Cagliari v Bologna (20:00)
Cagliari have scored in all but one of their 10 matches this season.
BTTS has landed in seven of those games, while they have scored six goals in their last three at home.
Bologna’s last three matches have finished 2-2, 2-1 and 2-1, and this one should be no different.
BTTS & over 2.5 goals in Sassuolo v Fiorentina (20:00)
This bet would have landed in three of Fiorentina’s four away games this season.
They were beaten 2-1 at home to Lazio last Sunday and have only failed to score in two of their 13 games this season.
Sassuolo have lost 3-4 and 1-4 in their last two games at home, but have at least scored 11 goals in their last four.
Michy Batshuayi (Chelsea) to score v Manchester United (20:05)
Batshuayi bagged the winner after coming off the bench at Ajax in the Champions League last week and will probably start here with Frank Lampard likely to rotate his squad.
The Belgian has scored in his last three appearances for club and country and also netted a brace at home to Grimsby in the previous round.
Given that Chelsea average 16.5 shots per game in the league – second only to Manchester City – he is bound to get a few chances to add to his tally.
