With the World Cup qualifiers taking center stage this weekend, we have another stacked Saturday schedule from across the globe. So, for those of you who are looking to put on a weekend flutter, we have found a handful of helpful tips that are worth keeping an eye out for.
Saturday October 9th
BST 15:00 Sheffield Wednesday vs Bolton
While Bolton might have only made their League One return earlier in the year, there is no doubt that the Whites have continued to shock many across England’s third-tier. Finding another morale boost in midweek as they breezed their way to a thumping 4-1 win against Liverpool U21’s on EFL Trophy duties, Ian Evatt’s men firmly find themselves battling it out in the play-off hunt. Looking to lay down what would be a real marker on the road this weekend, the former Premier League outfit are enjoying a three-match winning run across all formats. Showing a clinical edge in the final third and also landing another 4-1 win away at Charlton last month, Bolton open Saturday’s contest just a single point adrift of breaking into the top-six. Bagging 10 goals on their three-match winning run, chances could come thick and fast at Hillsborough. On the flip side, while Sheffield Wednesday might have landed their own EFL Trophy win in midweek thanks to a 2-1 victory away at Mansfield, Saturday’s hosts have shown some inconsistencies this season. Last seen on League One action getting hit with a 2-1 loss against Oxford on home soil, the Owls have managed to win just one of their last six third-tier matchups. It should be noted, with Darren Moore’s men seeing each of their last five fixtures across all formats finish with both teams finding the net, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
Tip: Both teams to score @ 4/5
17:00 Georgia vs Greece
Starting with Saturday’s guests, last seen putting in what was an eye-catching display on home soil, Greece should find the mood in their camp at a real high. Grabbing what many thought was a shock 2-1 victory at home against Sweden last month, John van’t Schip’s men are firmly battling it out in the top-two chase. Despite gaining a reputation as a stalemate specialist earlier in the year, the one-time European champions have impressed with their rugged approach. Along with landing a 2-1 win against Erling Haaland’s Norway in a friendly contest back in June, Piratiko have lost just one of their last 13 matchups across all formats, a run that stems back to October 2020. Managing to snatch points off of the likes of Spain and Belgium on their recent purple patch, this weekend’s guests will be smelling a golden chance on their travels. On the flip side, while Greece might still have their sights set on securing a spot at next year’s World Cup finals, Georgia find themselves in the midst of what has been a qualifying nightmare. Last seen getting hit with a dreadful 4-1 drumming away in Bulgaria on September 8th, Saturday’s hosts have lost each of their last four straight matchups across all formats. Showing a host of issues at both ends of the pitch, Willy Sagnol’s men have also mustered just a single point from their five Group B fixtures. Likewise, it should also be noted that Georgia have recorded just a single victory from any of their last 13 matchups on the spin. Given the recent gulf in class between the two nations, we’re backing an away win here at attractive odds.
Tip: Greece win @ 13/10
23:00 New York Red Bulls vs Inter Miami
Starting with the hosts, while New York might still find themselves in an uphill battle to secure a Final Series spot, they are enjoying what has become a real MLS purple patch. With their sights still set on trying to mount a late charge for the top-seven, Gerhard Struber’s men should find the mood in their camp at a high. Putting on a professional display last weekend as they secured a deserved 1-0 victory away at Cincinnati, the Red Bulls are now in the midst of a five-match unbeaten run. With just a single defeat to their name since the end of August, the former Barnsley boss will also be boosted by his most recent meeting against Saturday’s opponents. Smelling what is a golden chance on home soil this weekend, New York landed a stunning 4-0 win when they made the trip to Miami last month. Enjoying what many around the Red Bull Arena feel has been their brightest run of the campaign, their Eastern Conference rivals could face a stern test here. While Phil Neville’s men might have enjoyed a stellar run last month, Inter Miami have really come crashing back down to earth. Last seen getting hit with a 1-0 defeat against Portland on their travels, the Herons have now lost each of their last four MLS contests on the spin. Hit for four when they faced off against New York on September 18th, we’re backing a similar outcome on Saturday.
