Mega Jackpot Bet Slip
Preston v Sheffield Utd
The head-to-head record between these two teams has many draws. And with the recent slump in the visitors’ form, Preston has the upper hand.
Pick: Preston or Draw
Brighton v Burnley
Burnley is a team on the rise. In its last 10 premier league matches, it has managed 6 wins. On the flip side, the hosts only recorded 2 wins in their last 10 matches. This is the first time these teams are meeting in the PL and clearly the Sean Dyche-led squad are likely to win. However, their last meetings in the Championship point to a possible draw.
Pick: Draw or Burnley
Millwall v Middlesbrough
One of the match facts for this tie is that the visitors have not recorded any draw in their last 10 matches. The matches have only ended in wins or losses. As such, the preferred pick for this tie is a Middlesbrough win, a choice which is backed up by the fact that the previous ties between these teams have ended in the away team winning.
Pick: Millwall or Middlesbrough
Birmingham v QPR
QPR has won 2 and drawn 2 in its last 4 meetings with Birmingham. With the hosts recording under 2.5 goals in their last 10 matches, QPR has a shot at winning since most of their matches tend to record over 2.5 goals.
Ipswich v Reading
Reading has a better winning record than Ipswich when they meet. The in-form Modou Barrow could prove crucial in helping his Reading teammates secure a win given his recent 3 goals in 2 matches. It might be a slim win though.
Derby v Aston Villa
This is a close one to call hence why we think Villa might grab a slender win here.
Pick: Aston Villa
Sunderland v Fulham
The last time these two team met was in an FA Cup match and Sunderland won 3-1. However, this season has been a streak of draws and losses for the hosts. As such, it is reasonable to say a Sunderland win is unlikely.
Pick: Draw or Fulham
Gillingham v Bristol Rovers
After recording a 6-match losing streak in all competitions, Bristol has enjoyed back-to-back wins. The wins should be a confidence booster for the players and traveling fans.
Pick: Bristol Rovers
Northampton v Walsall
In recent matches, Walsall has a better record than the hosts. However, Northampton might aim to end their poor results and record a positive one in this match. A quick check on the H2H between the two shows Walsall is the dominant side. Either team can win this tie.
Ath Bilbao v Real Sociedad
Having won both Basque derbies last season, Bilbao is still the favorite to win this tie. The assumption is also backed up by the recent poor results from Sociedad. Iñaki Williams who scored in last season’s ties for Bilbao is a player to watch this weekend. From the onset, this derby looks balanced hence we cannot rule out the possibility of a draw.
Pick: Athletic Bilbao
St. Liege v Gent
Results show Gent are focused on the Jupiler League while the hosts continue to post positive results in the Belgian Cup. For that reason, the visitors are the favorites to win the tie. At the same time, Gent hhasan impressive H2H record against Liege.
Kortrijk v KV Mechelen
This is a balanced tie. The teams are separated by only a point but the 2 wins in a row for the visitors could be the motivating factor for another victory. However, the match could still end with both teams sharing the points.
Pick: KV Mechelen
Troyes v Amiens
The hosts have recorded 3 consecutive losses and would be more than ready to correct that trend. Although Amiens will put up a good fight in trying to avoid the relegation zone, Troyes home advantage could play a crucial part in this tie.
Pick: Troyes or Draw
Celta Vigo v Villarreal
The idea of Villarreal recording 4 straight losses is far-fetched. That being said, Celta have recorded impressive home results this season. As such, this is a tie more destined for a draw and slim away win.
Benevento v Spal
Two struggling teams and it’s more of tossing a coin to pick the possible winner. We go for Spal but you could consider a stalemate.
Las Palmas v Espanyol
The previous meetings between these two sides have only recorded a single draw. Going by the trend, it is likely this tie will end in a winner and loser. Since the tie can go either way, our preferred pick is a home win.
Pick: Las Palmas
Atalanta v Lazio
Lazio seem to be on the downward graph but they can find solace in their impressive record against Atalanta. The visitors have won their last 3 encounters against the hosts. At the same time, Lazio has a better away form than Atalanta.
