Our writers have selected their bets - one football and one Betway UK Championship snooker - to help you get started.

Football - Will Rook


Tottenham were held by West Brom at the weekend, but have won six of their last nine on the road.

Leicester are without a win in three, so this looks like a decent game to start us off.

Derby made it back-to-back league victories on Saturday by beating Middlesbrough 3-0, and have now lost once in 11.

The Rams should beat an Ipswich side that has lost six out of eight away from home.

In League One, it’s three wins from three for Blackburn . At odds-against, they are not to be sniffed at.

Finally, Bordeaux are going through a rough patch, but have lost just one in seven at home.

St-Etienne are without a win in seven and will struggle again on Tuesday evening.

Back the four-fold at 10/1*.

Snooker - Adam Drury


Elliot Slessor ran out of steam in the Northern Ireland Open semi-finals last week, so is a good bet to lose to Thepchaiya Un-Nooh in the first round of the Betway UK Championship at .

David Grace, who reached the semi-final in 2015, should see off Jak Jones at , while 2004 champion Stephen Maguire is certain to come through against Yuan Sijun at .

Back the treble at 9/4*.
