Our writers have selected their bets – one football and one tennis - to help you get started.

Football - Will Rook


Tottenham beat Dortmund in their opening Champions League game and have now won four out of five in all competitions.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side shouldn’t be troubled by an APOEL side that are winless and goalless in three.

Monaco spanked Lille 4-0 at the weekend and are a tempting price to win again against Porto, who lost at home to Besiktas in their opening group game.

In the Football League, Bolton have lost six on the bounce without scoring a goal. Bristol City are unbeaten in eight and will ease to victory.

Finally, Bradford should bring this four-fold home. The Bantams have won five out of six in all competitions and look good value for a home win.

Back the 6/1 four-fold here.

Tennis - Adam Drury


Kyle Edmund has been out injured since the US Open, but should ease back into winning ways at the Chengdu Open against Bernard Tomic, who has not won a match since June.

I also fancy the experience of Viktor Troicki and Marcos Baghdatis to win through.

Back the treble at 5/2.
