Football - Will Rook


Shakhtar beat Napoli in their opening Champions League match and have won 10 of their last 12 in all competitions. Feyenoord have lost four out of six, so this one picks itself.

Sevilla stumbled against Athletic Bilbao at the weekend, but have already collected four points in Group E. They are a decent price to add another three against a side with just two wins from five at home.

In the Football League, Rotherham have won three on the spin without conceding a goal. The Millers are great value to beat struggling Wimbledon, who have won just one in five.

League One leaders Wigan have won six out of seven and should beat a Gillingham side that recorded just their second victory of the season at the weekend.

Back the four-fold at 13/1*.

Few of the big names are in action this week, after the Asian swing came to an end in Shanghai last weekend.

Andrey Rublev is ranked 35th in the world, having been outside the top 100 in June. At , he is likely to beat Filip Krajinovic, who has been operating on the Challenger circuit.

So, too, has Laslo Djere, who probably won’t trouble the veteran Paolo Lorenzi, who reached the US Open last 16 last month. Back Lorenzi to win at .

Get on the treble at 29/10*.
