Our star pundits return with another selection of tips from the Premier League, the Championship and the Belgian Pro League ahead of this weekend's fixtures
Odds supplied by Stan James
Alan Thompson/Sports Pool
Last week's tip:
£5 on Estonia to win @ 3.50 /£5 on under 1.5 goals @ 3.25
Result: N.Ireland 1-2 Estonia
Profit/Loss: + £3

Match Odds: Stoke 2.10, Draw 3.25, Fulham 3.75
Fulham, who have kept five consecutive clean sheets, face a team that is statistically the least attacking side in the Premier League. However, Stoke played Fulham three times last season and all the games finished with a 2-0 score line. Stoke now have Peter Crouch in their line-up a man who has scored in three of his last five Premier League starts against Fulham. Home win in a tight affair.

Tip: £5 Back Stoke to win @ 2.10
Tip: £5 Back under 2.5 goals @ 1.67

Jonathan Day/Sportingly Better Tipster
Last week's tip: Over 2.5 goals (Netherlands v Moldova) & Spain to win (Czech Republic) @ 2.52
Result: Netherlands 1-0 Moldova/ Czech Republic 0-2 Spain
Profit/Loss:  - £10

Match Odds: Man City 1.33, Draw 4.75, Aston Villa 9.50
Aston Villa remain unbeaten in the Premier League, but the trip to Eastlands provides the first real test for Alex McLeish’s side. Last season Man City came away with a 4-0 win courtesy of a Mario Balotelli hat trick and this term Villa are noticeably lighter in midfield with both Ashley Young and Stewart Downing having both moved on over the summer.

Tip: Manchester City -1 Asian Handicap @ 1.55

JD/JD Football Betting
Last week's tip: Double Sheffield Wednesday & Swindon Town both to win @ 2.48
Result: Sheff Wed 3-1 Chesterfield, Swindon 3-3 Hereford
Profit/Loss: - £10

Liverpool have an excellent recent home record against arch nemesis Man Utd but the Red Devils should at least avoid defeat this time. The second part of our treble includes Man City to beat Aston Villa and last but not least Barcelona to score over 2.5 team goals at home to Racing Santander. Odds of around 2.67 are fair.

Treble on Man Utd to win or draw, Man City to win, Barcelona to score over 2.5 goals @ 2.67 

Michael Yokhin/ International Football Expert
Last week's tip: Sheffield Wednesday and Charlton to win @ 2.67
Result: Sheff Wed 3-1 Chesterfield, Charlton 1-1 Tranmere
Profit/Loss: - £10

Match Odds: St Truiden 2.63, Draw 3.30, Beerschot 2.50

There are goal fests in most of St Truiden's games - their defence is porous with an average of three goals conceded since the league started. It's somewhat ironic that their last two home matches ended in 3-4 defeats to Gent and Genk, and there was also a 3-3 draw with Club Brugge in August. Interestingly, most of the goals usually come in the second half, and it's the pattern that suits Beerschot as well
Tip: Over 1.5 goals in the second half @ 1.83

Nikos Tsagkatakis/Titan Bet Sports Trader
Last week's tip: England to keep a clean sheet @ 2.25
Result: Montenegro 2-2 England
Profit/Loss: - £10

Match Odds: Middlesbrough 1.80, Draw 3.40, Millwall 4.50

Middlesbrough have a great record against Millwall taking all the points in 15 out of 21 meetings at Riverside. Boro are unbeaten in the league so far and Millwall are six games since a win and five since scoring a goal. It's not unreasonable for one to say that a home win is again the most likely outcome.

Tip: Middlesbrough - 0.75 @ 2.19
