What The Stats Say - Tips for every Premier League match

Dan Fitch points out that Arsenal are very consistent at home and can be backed at a big price against Leicester, as he uses Opta stats to pick 10 Premier League bets.

He says: "Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 11 Premier League home games (W9 D2), after losing their final three at the Emirates in 2019."

With that record, Arsenal's price of 2.01/1 to beat Leicester looks rather generous.

There's a big derby in Germany too on Saturday when Borussia Dortmund host Schalke. You can watch the match on Betfair Live Video but first read Kevin Hatchard's preview.

He says: "Schalke haven't won any of their last 20 Bundesliga matches, and they face a Dortmund side that has won its last two home games 3-0 and 4-0."

Back Borussia Dortmund to win, to score over 1.5 goals and back Erling Haaland to score at 1.768/11 on the Sportsbook

Serie A - Correct score predictor

Tom uses the Infogol data to provides result and score predictions in Serie A as Milan aim to keep their winning run going.

He says: "The visit of Roma will be a real test for Milan, with the pressure increased by the fact that the game comes hot on the heels of a Europa League trip to Celtic."

Ligue 1 - Weekend tipsheet

French football expert James Eastham thinks Monaco are well-placed to pick up at least a point in Sunday night's potentially enthralling clash. Our man also recommends bets on two other matches this weekend.

He says: "Monaco have one more point than Lyon so far this season, and Lyon's only two victories from their opening seven games came against sides currently 18th (Strasbourg) and 20th (Dijon) in the table."

Lay Lyon at home to Monaco @ 1.728/11
