Romelu Lukaku is priced at 2.3211/8 to find the net at any time, while Mount is also worth considering at a chunky 4.77/2, having found the net in midweek.

West Ham v Chelsea: Tetchy Tuchel to take the win

The Premier League leaders face a tough trip to East London in the first Premier League match of the weekend.

Kevin Hatchard says: "West Ham are a team that deserves respect, and their home win over Liverpool caught the eye. That said, the Hammers haven't played well in recent matches, and they face a Chelsea side that has been relentlessly efficient on the road. The Blues won home and away against West Ham last season, and I can see them edging a tight match here.

"I'll happily back the visitors in the Match Odds market at 1.845/6, but you can boost that price to evens by using the Sportsbook's Bet Builder and throwing in an Under 4.5 Goals bet. Only one of Chelsea's league victories this term has featured more than four goals, and that was a 7-0 success against hapless Norwich City.

"Romelu Lukaku is priced at 2.3211/8 to find the net at any time, while Mount is also worth considering at a chunky 4.77/2, having found the net in midweek. The England international has at least one shot in eight of his 11 Premier League appearances, and he's averaging 1.02 shots on target per 90, with 41% of his goal attempts ending up on target."

Kevin's bet: Back Chelsea to win at 1.845/6

Coventry v West Brom: Keep Sky Blues onside

Fourth visits sixth in the early televised kick-off in the Championship on Saturday and the home side look a decent price to get something from the game.

Mark O'Haire says: "Coventry have exceeded all expectations to occupy a position inside the top-six of the Championship with underlying performance metrics suggesting Mark Robins' men are good value for their strong position. The Sky Blues boast an excellent W7-D2-L1 return from fixtures at their CBS Arena base, racking up an eye-catching 19 goals in the process.

"West Brom 2.447/5 dropped only two points across their first five fixtures under Valerien Ismael. However, pressure is now being cranked up around The Hawthorns with Albion tabling just five Championship triumphs in their following 15 games (W5-D6-L4) to move closer to seventh than automatic promotion. Away, WBA have W3-D3-L4 this term."

Mark's bet: Back Coventry Double Chance and Under 3.5 Goals at 1.910/11

Bayer Leverkusen v Greuther Fürth: Bayer to batter basement side

Our German football expert landed three bets out of three last weekend so pay attention to his tips for this week's action in the Bundesliga.

Kevin Hatchard says: "Bayer Leverkusen have slowly but surely worked their way out of a slump that was sparked by the 5-1 hammering by Bayern, and they have won four of their last five games in all competitions. At the BayArena, Die Werkself have won their last three games, scoring eight goals in the process. Patrik Schick, Florian Wirtz and Moussa Diaby are all fit and firing, and all sparkled in last weekend's win at RB Leipzig.

"Bayer should win this with room to spare, and we can back them -2.0 on the Asian Handicap here at 2.0421/20. If Bayer win by two goals, our stake is returned, but a bigger success gives us an odds-against winner. If you look at Fürth's seven away games in the league, they have lost all of them. Three of those defeats were by two goals, and three were by three goals or more."

Kevin's bet: Back Bayer Leverkusen -2.0 on the Asian Handicap v Greuther Fürth at 2.0421/20

Wolves v Liverpool tips: Rampant Reds to roll on at Molineux

Wolves 8.88/1 v Liverpool 1.444/9, the Draw 5.14/1
15:00

Liverpool are aiming to make it five consecutive wins in all competitions when they travel to the Black Country on Saturday afternoon.

Paul Higham says: "The bookies can't really decide if Wolves will be able to find the net as it's around about the same price for both teams to score as not, but they are predicting goals, with over 2.5 priced at just 1.75/7 with the belief Liverpool's attack will win out against Wolves' defence.

"It's also just 1.444/9 that Liverpool maintain their run of scoring two goals away from home, and they've been doing much better than that - as they scored at least three in their first eight away games of the season and have done so in nine of their 11 road trips.

"With the Reds such big favourites there's not too much value about, but the 3.7511/4 for them to score a penalty might be worth a look - as only Newcastle have given away more spot-kicks than Wolves this season.

"Liverpool usually start fast but even if they score Wolves won't be changing their style until later in the game - although the Reds have shown how they can be got at, Wolves haven't exactly been storming forward and it's worth backing Liverpool to win to nil at 2.56/4."

Paul's bet: Back Liverpool to win to nil @ 2.56/4

Newcastle v Burnley: Another classic at St James'

Newcastle 2.427/5 v Burnley 3.259/4, the Draw 3.45
15:00

Newcastle are still winless after they failed to win their relegation six pointer against Norwich in midweek and the pressure is on to take three points at home to Burnley.

Paul Robinson says: "In seven home matches, Newcastle have scored 11 goals and conceded 17. On four occasions they have scored two or more and failed to win the game.

Burnley drew 0-0 at Wolves during the week, but apart from that, their fixtures have largely been pretty entertaining this term.

"Sean Dyche's men are seeing their matches average 2.62 goals each time, and seven of their 13 have seen this selection land."

Paul's bet (leg one of his Saturday treble): Back Over 2.5 Goals

AS Roma v Inter: Back capital goals

Jose Mourinho faces his old club on Saturday and finds them in form, particularly away from home.

Chloe Beresford says: "The arrival of Simone Inzaghi to replace Antonio Conte has not hindered the relentless pace of Inter, who have now lost just three of their last 33 away games in the league. They are currently on a seven-match unbeaten streak during which they have been winning at both half time and full time in their last three Serie A matches.

"Meanwhile, Roma have lost three of their last five league outings, with pressure beginning to mount on Jose Mourinho after a 1-0 defeat at Bologna in midweek. That game marked the first time in eight games that the Giallorossi have failed to score, while Inter have hit the back of the net in each of their last 12 matches.

"It is interesting to note that the over 2.5 goals tally has been hit in each of the last five meetings between these two at the Stadio Olimpico, with the last three all ending in 2-2 draws.

Chloe's bet: Both Teams to Score and No Draw: Yes @ 2.26/5

Borussia Dortmund v Bayern Munich: Star strikers to shine

It's Der Klassiker on Saturday evening and there couldn't be more at stake with just a point separating the rivals at the top of the Bundesliga table.

Kevin Hatchard says: "Bayern are 1.845/6 to win this on the Exchange, but you can combine a Bayern win with a Lewandowski goal at 2.1211/10 on the Sportsbook's Bet Builder.

" Bayern have won their last six meetings with their old foes, and Haaland hasn't been able to swing the pendulum in BVB's favour. You could also back Bayern -1.0 on the Asian Handicap at 2.35/4, as three of Bayern's last six wins over Dortmund have seen them win by more than one goal. This season they have won 4-1 at RB Leipzig and 5-1 at Bayer Leverkusen. They relish the big games.

"If you want an alternative angle, given Haaland's excellent scoring record, you could back the Norwegian and Lewandowski to both find the net at 2.829/5. Bayern have kept just one clean sheet in their last seven matches."

Kevin's bet: Back Erling Haaland and Robert Lewandowski to both score at 2.829/5

Real Sociedad v Real Madrid: Back another win for La Liga leaders

Real Sociedad 3.39/4 v Real Madrid 2.285/4, The Draw 3.65

The La Liga leaders Real Madrid travel to face third placed Real Sociedad, in the final game of Saturday's Spanish top flight action.

Dan Fitch says: "Sociedad have had a lengthy spell on top of La Liga themselves this season. They now find themselves seven points behind Madrid, having lost 1-0 at Espanyol last weekend, in what was only their second La Liga defeat of the campaign.

"Real Madrid were in midweek action, winning 1-0 at home to Athletic Bilbao. It was their fifth straight league win and leaves them seven points ahead of second placed Atletico Madrid, who hold a game in hand.

"Considering their run of form, Madrid look big at 2.285/4 to claim victory. Should you want a bigger price, combine a Real Madrid win and under 2.5 goals at 5.04/1. Some 12 of Sociedad's 15 La Liga games have seen less than three goals scored."

Dan's bet: Back Real Madrid to beat Real Sociedad at 2.285/4
