We’ve rounded up our experts for another best bets accumulator for Saturday’s games and this five-fold comes in at 58/1.

Joining myself in representing FST is Aaron Rogan, with Racing Post trio Dan Childs, Aaron Ashley and Joe Casey also providing their best bets for Saturday’s games.

Atalanta vs Roma – Atalanta to win at 7/10

Atalanta have won six straight league games to move within three points of top spot in Serie A. La Dea have the joint-best record across the last eight games, winning seven of those. Having scored nine goals across their last two home league wins, the hosts look good for another victory.

Roma come into this one in terrible form after recent losses to Bologna and Inter. The visitors have lost five of eight away trips this season, losing every match against sides outside the bottom three. It hasn’t been a vintage year for Jose Mourinho in Italy, so back his side to fall against an Atalanta outfit who have won 11 of 17 league games this term.

Real Sociedad vs Villarreal – Sociedad to win at 23/20

Real Sociedad have lost their last three La Liga games but did beat PSV Eindhoven in the Europa League in their last outing at the Anoeta and the visit of poor travellers Villarreal looks a real opportunity to get their domestic campaign back on track.

The Yellow Submarines are one of four teams in Spain’s top tier yet to win on the road and they have lost three of their last four trips. Villarreal have only scored four goals on their travels, while La Real have only lost one of their home games in La Liga and that defeat came at the hands of leaders Real Madrid so the odds against price on a home win in this tie looks great value.

Sutton vs Harrogate – Harrogate to win at 21/10

Harrogate have slipped to tenth in League Two after failing to build on their flying start to the season but they can reinvigorate their promotion hopes by defeating sixth-placed Sutton at Gander Green Lane.

The Sulphurites have had some problems with injuries but their squad is starting to look stronger and they have won three of their last four away games, including a memorable 2-1 success at Portsmouth in the FA Cup second round.

Simon Weaver’s side could still feature in the fourth tier promotion shake up and they look overpriced against injury-hit Sutton, who have taken just one point from their last two fixtures.

Leeds vs Arsenal – Over 3.5 goals at 7/4

Leeds’ treatment room remains full, with nine first-team players set to miss out on this tie through injury or suspension, including key men Patrick Bamford, Kalvin Phillips and three of their centre back options.

In the face of such a battered and bruised squad, Arsenal should be able to fill their boots. The Gunners should have scored more than the two they managed in their win over West Ham, registering 21 shots in the game.

Leeds were beaten 7-0 by Manchester City in midweek and their last three games have seen 16 goals in total. Attack may have to be the best form of defence for Marcelo Bielsa’s side and this late Saturday fixture may turn into a slugfest.

Blackburn vs Birmingham – Blackburn to win at 10/11

Blackburn have recorded four straight victories to nil to put themselves in Championship promotion reckoning and they ought to find the winning formula at home to Birmingham.

Rovers were 2-0 winners at second-placed Bournemouth last weekend and have also shut out playoff rivals Stoke during their winning sequence, so should have little to fear against the inconsistent Blues.

Birmingham threw away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with fifth-bottom Cardiff last time out and have largely struggled on their travels, winning only once from their last nine attempts away from St. Andrew’s.
