Bet 1: Back Over 2.5 Goals in Norwich v QPR @ 8/11 - KO 19:45 BST
The Canaries are in their second season back in the Championship and if the first is anything to go by, there will be plenty of goals at Carrow Road.
Last year their matches averaged 3.35 goals each time, as 32 of their 46 ended with overs backers collecting. They have started in a similar vein this term as after opening up with a 1-1 draw at Fulham, they beat Swindon 3-2 in the EFL Cup, before going on to lose 3-1 against Sunderland - the latter two of which were at home.
QPR had 25 of 46 fixtures go over 2.5 last season and they have scored in every game themselves this year. They have looked impressive in beating Reading 2-0 and they picked up a point in a 1-1 draw at Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend - a result which should be admired.
Bet 2: Back Sunderland and Draw @ 8/11 - KO 19:45 BST
Following on from QPR's admirable 1-1 draw at Hillsborough, I have to feel that Sunderland can follow suit - or better.
The jury was out on the Black Cats prior to the season kicking off as their friendly results weren't overly positive and then the Darren Gibson incident happened.
Simon Grayson's side have seemingly put all that behind them though as they have taken four points from a possible six in the league and progressed through to the next round of the EFL Cup.
The Owls on the other hand are far from flying as they have drawn one and lost one of their opening two Championship games and their fixture list has been easier than Sunderland's. I do expect them to improve as the campaign wears on, but I think they could be vulnerable this evening.
Bet 3: Back Basaksehir and Draw @ 13/20 - KO 19:45 BST
Into the Champions League now where I'm backing Turkish club, Basaksehir to avoid defeat at home to Sevilla.
It wouldn't surprise me if a lot of people were suckered into backing an away victory here simply based on the names of the clubs involved.
That would be a bad move because the hosts finished as runners-up to Besiktas last season - finishing above both Fenerbahce and Galatasaray.
Emmanuel Adebayor and Gael Clichy are their most recognisable names and the former is still in his first 12 months at the club - which means he is still trying. The former Spurs man scored six in 11 league appearances at the end of last term.
Sevilla are of course a good team but they are much stronger at home than they are on the road. It also shouldn't be forgotten how they lost 2-0 at Leicester last season.
Bet 4: Back Lionel Messi to score @ 11/10 - KO 22:00 BST
The fourth of today's four selections comes from the Spanish Super Cup as Barcelona have a mountain to climb at the Bernabeu if they want to deny Real Madrid yet another piece of silverware.
The first leg at the Nou Camp finished 3-1 to Zinedine Zidane's men but the result was overshadowed by the dismissal and subsequent ban of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Given his absence this evening, Barca may well just think that this match and even cup is there for the taking. They have to score at least three times if they are to have any chance of lifting the trophy, so they will surely go for it from the off.
Lionel Messi isn't one to shirk a challenge and getting him to score at odds-against in any Barcelona match seems likes value - especially one where they have to attack and then keep on attacking.
