Well if you followed last weekends football betting tips you already know that we smashed it!
We nailed all four predictions which returned £145.50 from £10 stakes.
After posting some decent profit in the Champions League and Europa League games in midweek it was a great weekend and I’m hoping for the same again this time around – no guarantees but I’ll be trying!
Football Tips: Saturday 26th October

November 2, 2019
Bournemouth’s 0-0 draw at Watford last week saw them into 9th place in the table.
Man Utd beat Norwich 3-1 at Carrow Road to move into 7th in the EPL.
United have won all of the last four and six of the last seven matches between the teams.
In 16 matches between the teams, Bournemouth have two wins, their last in Dec 2015.
Manchester United’s first win away from home since March handed the Red Devil’s a timely boost in the Premier League table to move them into seventh, leapfrogging their opponents today, Bournemouth, who moved to ninth following their away draw to Watford.
The Cherries home record is pretty inconsistent with one win, two draws and one defeat at home this season. United’s away record is equally unimpressive but you feel that with the win at Carrow Road, breaking their hoodoo on the road, will have given United a massive confidence boost heading into this game.
However, Bournemouth won’t make it easy for their visitors on Saturday and a lunchtime kickoff can throw preparations into disarray, especially for United who are in action in midweek in the Carabao Cup.
That said, I think now that their away win duck has been broken, I can see United earning a second win on the road here, but I do feel Bournemouth are likely to grab a goal themselves.

Arsenal were held 2-2 at home by Crystal Palace last week. Dropping to 5th in the table.
Wolves earned a point in a 1-1 draw away to Newcastle last week. They lie 12th.
Wolves have won one of the last 21 games between the teams, a 3-1 win last April.
Arsenal have won 57 of the 114 games between the teams with 27 draws and 30 defeats.
Life doesn’t seem to be a bowl of Cherries for Arsenal at this moment in time, especially for captain Granit Xhaka who seemed to have a very public falling out with Arsenal fans last weekend. The ramifications of that are yet to be seen fully and it will be interesting to see if Xhaka starts this game and whether he is still captain of the team come kick off.
Wolves season started slowly, then improved markedly but has seemed to stall over the last few weeks with a number of drawn matches against lesser sides. However Nuno Santo’s team always seem to save their best performances for their games against the top sides and it is worth remembering that they have lost the same number of games this season (2) as Arsenal in the Premier League.
Both these teams are liable to concede a goal or two, either at home or on the road, but I also feel both are likely to grab a goal or two. As such, while I would not normally tip Arsenal to draw two home games in a row, the fact that it is Wolves their opponent on Saturday means I have backed another score draw here.
Sheffield United earned a solid point at West Ham last week. They are 8th in the table.
Burnley were beaten 4-2 at home by Chelsea last weekend. They lie 13th.
The teams last met in 2011, when Burnley ran out 4-2 winners in the Championship.
The teams last met in the top division in England back in 1976, with Burnley 3-1 victors.
Sheffield United have made an incredible start to the season considering they are one of the newly promoted teams to the Premier League. Chris Wilder’s team have been superb defensively to ensure that the relatively few goals that they have scored in their games, have ensured they have picked up one or maximum points.
Burnley’s decent start to the season has tailed off a little and last week’s loss to Chelsea at home will have been a disappointment. It is rare Burnley concede four at home to any side and manager Sean Dyche will be looking for a reaction to that result here on Saturday afternoon.
Games between the teams are not that frequent and I feel that Sheffield United’s home form means that it is going to be a very tough afternoon for Burnley. Similarly, I also feel the Blades lack of goal scoring threat against what is usually a strong Burnley defence, could be a problem.
In all honesty, I think this game has 0-0 written all over it, but I have gone for the draw for a little more flexibility, if at slightly lesser odds.
Everton dropped to 16th in the table on the back of their 3-2 loss at Brighton last week.
Tottenham’s 2-1 defeat at Anfield saw them drop to a lowly 11th in the table.
All of the last five games between the teams have seen three or more goals scored.
Everton have not beaten Spurs in 13 games, a run stretching back to December 2012.
Two teams that are in something of a crisis of form at the moment meet at Goodison Park on Sunday in what is a must-win game for both teams. Everton’s poor form continued with a 3-2 loss at Brighton, while Spurs defeat at Anfield, despite taking the lead, represents yet another defeat on the road for the beleaguered Tottenham fans.
Despite that bright start at Liverpool, Spurs once again could not capitalise on that and ended up well beaten on the day. Everton struggled to assert themselves at Brighton and defensively they looked very susceptible once again.
It is hard to make a case for either team to win this game, but Everton did win their last home game and they do owe Spurs after Tottenham won this fixture 6-2 last season. I don’t have a huge amount of conviction here, but the odds are so good that I think backing Everton to win the game, but both teams to score, is the wise move.
