Saturday Football Tips: Which Teams Should You Back To Win On August 19th?

After landing a 9/2 treble last Saturday, we’re back at it this weekend with another treble from the three o’clock matches. And if our three picks all do the business this time round, we’ll be turning our £10 stake into a whopping £109!

We’re backing three home sides to all win their respective matches. Here are our selections.

Burnley V West Bromwich Albion

Both West Brom and Burnley started their Premier League campaigns with fantastic victories last weekend, but it’s the Clarets who shocked us all with that stunning win at Stamford Bridge. Sean Dyche’s men will be full of confidence as they prepare for their first game at Turf Moor, and we’re backing them to get the win.

Burnley’s home form was brilliant last term as they won over half of their matches. With Sam Vokes already scoring in 2017-18, the hosts will be optimistic about finding the net against their opponents.

West Brom will head into this game with every reason to fancy their chances too, especially as they boast a strong defence. Still, Tony Pulis’ men aren’t the most frequent scorers on the road and did pick up just three wins on their travels last term. This could be their weakness again this year, starting on Saturday.

The teams shared a 2-2 draw towards the back end of last term, but this one should be tighter. We’re backing the Burnley boys to edge it.

Fleetwood Town V AFC Wimbledon

In League One, AFC Wimbledon are yet to really get going and boast just one point from a possible six while they also lost in the EFL Cup. Neal Ardley’s men have more than enough quality to improve over the coming weeks, but they might have to wait a little longer as this weekend’s trip to Highbury could be one of their hardest challenges all year.

Fleetwood boast a 100% league record after two games and already showing signs that they’ll live up to expectations of fighting for promotion. Uwe Rosler has built a solid side while the attacking qualities of Conor McAleny and Devante Cole should always give them a good chance in the final third.

The visitors aren’t exactly short of quality either with Lyle Taylor and Andrew Barcham posing a threat to Fleetwood. Having said that, the Dons are short of confidence and that could be problematic in this difficult encounter.

Whether they register a third clean sheet or not, we’re backing the hosts to prevail.

Wycombe Wanderers V Notts County

Notts County may have grabbed their first win of the campaign against struggling Chesterfield last week, but the Magpies face a far tougher challenge this weekend as they head to Adams Park. Frankly, it’s hard to see anything other than a win for the hosts.

The visitors actually won more games on the road than at home last term, but they still lost 13 of their 23 away games. Kevin Nolan’s men also started 2017-18 with a 3-0 defeat at Coventry. Given that Wycombe are another one of the better sides in the division, it could be a long afternoon for Adam Collin and his defence.

Wycombe boast four points from their opening two games but Gareth Ainsworth will be desperate to oversee a win. The experience of Adebayo Akinfenwa, Nathan Tyson, and co. is set to cause problems at League Two level all season, and this clash should be no different.

It won’t be an easy win for the Chairboys. Still, three points looks very likely.
