Mr. Predictor looks forward to the weekend

Hi gang! The international break brought me plenty of winners – I hope you were following me! Now it’s back to domestic action. Check out my tips for the weekend.

Sheffield Wednesday v Middlesbrough – Friday 19 October – Championship – BET HERE

There’s an obvious place to start here. Both teams have scored in 11 of Sheffield Wednesday’s 12 league games so far this season, including all six at home. They’re also unbeaten at Hillsborough since April, but they have a poor record against Middlesbrough. The visitors are fourth in the league and haven’t lost to the Owls since 2015. I’m going for an Away Win.

Match Tip: Both Teams to Score
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Sheffield Wednesday 1 v 2 Middlesbrough

Chelsea v Manchester United – Saturday 20 October – Premier League – BET HERE

Manchester United needed a big comeback in their last game against Newcastle, but they’re not clear of danger yet. Chelsea are yet to lose this season and have won four of their five home games so far. They’ve also got a strong record against the Red Devils, who have only scored once in their past five trips to Stamford Bridge. Jose Mourinho will be desperate to beat his former club, especially considering United’s form, but I have to back the Blues.

Match Tip: Chelsea Win
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict:
Chelsea 2 v 0 Manchester United

West Ham v Tottenham – Saturday 20 October – Premier League – BET HERE

This is tough to call. West Ham started the season with four consecutive losses, but they’ve taken seven points from their last four games. That run includes a victory over Manchester United and a draw with Chelsea, so they’ve proven that they can upset the big boys. However, Tottenham have won three league games in a row despite not playing at their best. If they return to form, then it’s an Away Win.

Match Tip: Both Teams to Score
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: West Ham 1 v 2 Tottenham

Villarreal v Atletico Madrid – Saturday 20 October – La Liga – BET HERE

These teams are in completely different form. Villarreal are one point above the relegation zone and have only won one of their past five games in all competitions. Atletico, on the other hand, have won four of their last five matches, although they haven’t won any of their last five games against the hosts. Even though they usually struggle here, I’m going for an Atletico win based on current form.

Match Tip: Under 2.5 Goals
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Villarreal 0 v 1 Atletico Madrid

Barcelona v Sevilla – Saturday 20 October – La Liga – BET HERE

What’s happening at Barcelona? It’s now four league games without victory for Ernesto Valverde’s men, which is their longest winless run since April 2016. They’re now second in the table, one point behind Sevilla, who have won four in a row in La Liga. Usually I’d back Barca, since they’ve won eight of their past ten matches against the visitors. I think there’s value in backing a Draw this time though.

Match Tip: Both Teams to Score
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Barcelona 2 v 2 Sevilla

Inter Milan v AC Milan – Sunday 21 October – Serie A – BET HERE

I always enjoy the Milan Derby, even though these teams aren’t at the height of their powers. Things are going well for the Nerazzurri, who are on a six-game winning streak in all competitions. That said, AC Milan haven’t lost since their first game of the season, and both teams have scored in all seven of their league games so far. Four of the last five derbies have finished level, so I’m going for a Draw.

Match Tip: Both Teams to Score
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Inter Milan 1 v 1 AC Milan
