With another busy Saturday of action from across England’s footballing tiers, we here at Soccer News have found a handful of interesting bets that can help boost your weekend accumulator:
15:00 Fulham vs Bournemouth
While Fulham may have broken the £100million barrier on new arrivals over the summer, it has been a very tricky start for Saturday’s hosts. Coming off the back of arguably their worst performance last weekend, Slaviša Jokanović’s side shipped four against fellow promotees and relegation favourites Cardiff meaning that the Cottagers have now dropped into the bottom three. Also losing their last three Premier League matches on the bounce and conceding 12 goals on the losing run, the Whites now hold the worst defensive record in the top flight. Given so much speculation surrounding Jokanović’s future in West London, Eddie Howe should be confident of extending their very bright start to the new season. Now unbeaten in their last four outings and winning three of those appearances, this has been the best start to a new campaign in the club’s history. With no team outside of the top four holding a better-attacking record, we’re backing the Cherries to extend their unbeaten run on Saturday.
Tip: Away win @ 7/5
15:00 Birmingham vs Sheffield Wednesday
Although Birmingham may have spent the majority of last season battling it out at the foot of the table, it has been a very bright start for Gary Monk’s side. Coming off the back of a 2-1 win over Reading in midweek, the Blues have now won their last three matches on the bounce and are also yet to be beaten in any competition since the 22nd of August. With a win on Saturday potentially moving them within one point of the playoff positions, one man who has epitomized Birmingham’s start to the season is top scorer Lukas Jutkiewicz. The 29-year-old now has six in his last five and also has five in his last three on home soil. Given Sheffield Wednesday’s recent struggles, the former Burnley striker should be confident of extending his tally. Last weekend, the Owls shipped three against QPR in arguably their worst showing of the new season, despite their solid start, the visitors have now picked up just one win in their last five and they now hold the second worst defensive record in the Championship.
Tip: Lukas Jutkiewicz to score anytime @ 15/8
15:00 Norwich vs Brentford
Although the Canneries couldn’t secure a top half finish last season, Saturday’s hosts are enjoying a very bright start under former Borussia Dortmund coach Daniel Farke. Now picking up a pair of 2-1 wins over Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest, two of the pre-season contenders, the Yellows have now lost just one of their last 11 matches in all competitions. Climbing into the playoff positions for the first time, one man to watch for the hosts will be former Sheffield Wednesday striker Jordan Rhodes. The 28-year-old grabbed both goals in midweek and also has five in his last six. As for Brentford, while they may have started the season in very impressive form, the Bees have begun freefalling down the table. Still looking for their first win under new full-time boss Thomas Frank, Saturday’s visitors have now lost their last two on the bounce and are also yet to record a single win in their last eight outings.
Tip: Home win @ 29/20
