There are Champions League qualifiers on Tuesday and Wednesday as well as a full programme in the Football League. On Thursday, there are Europa League and Europa Conference League qualifiers and with so much midweek action we’ve asked our team of experts for their best midweek bets.

A few of our experts have picked out some big price options and together their selections make up one huge 1491/1 eight-fold accumulator, which you can back below or by using our Football Tips page.

It would be a great story if Dynamo Kyiv could make it through to the Champions League group stages given the troubles in Ukraine but they may fall short to Benfica, particularly as the first leg will have to be played in neutral Poland.

Kyiv have benefitted from playing against ten men against both Sturm Graz and Fenerbahce, while Benfica smashed seven goals past Midtjylland despite selling Darwin Nunez to Liverpool in the summer.

Nunez’s sale allowed David Neres and Enzo Fernandez, who scored in both legs against Midtjylland, to arrive and new boss Roger Schmidt is a class act in the dugout.

Best Midweek Bet: Benfica to win at 7/10

Bodo/Glimt are yet to win away from home in Champions League qualification but their goalscoring record at the Aspmyra Stadion is phenomenal. They have netted 16 goals across their three home fixtures in this competition but face a threatening Dinamo Zagreb side that beat Ludogorets 6-3 on aggregate in the last round.

33 goals have been registered in Bodo/Glimt’s last six competitive home games and each of them has gone over the 2.5 goal line. Faced with a free-scoring Dinamo Zagreb side, 7/10 for over 2.5 goals looks good value.

Best Midweek Bet: Bodo/Glimt vs Dinamo Zagreb over 2.5 goals at 7/10

Leyton Orient have won their opening three league games of the season, keeping a clean sheet in each win. They were able to secure three points at Crawley in their last trip and they should take advantage of a Swindon side who have made a slow start.

The hosts opened with a 3-0 loss to Harrogate and they sit 19th in the table after their winless run. They were lucky to escape with a point at home to Salford in their last home game. Given Leyton Orient’s flying start, they look like big value at around 2/1.

Middlesbrough haven’t made the start they were looking for in terms of results, but the performances have been pretty good and they can pick up their first win of the season at Stoke. Boro were beaten 1-0 at home by Burnley on Saturday, but they dominated possession, and the shot and corner count in that game, and they were unlucky not to collect any points.

Prior to that Chris Wilder’s side lost 3-2 at QPR, but they put in a stirring second-half performance to battle back from 3-0 down and there has been enough in Boro’s efforts to suggest they can get the better of Stoke on Tuesday.

Best Midweek Bet: Middlesbrough to win at 9/5

Burton look a bit of a basket case in League One at the moment and Ipswich could give them a good seeing to on Tuesday. The Tractor Boys are riding high in the third tier after hammering MK Dons last Saturday and will be relishing their trip to Albion. The Brewers drew 4-4 with Accrington on Saturday and goals have been a common theme with them mainly flying into the Burton net. Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s men have shipped 13 goals in four matches this season and Ipswich should win with something to spare at the Pirelli Stadium.

Best Midweek Bet: Ipswich -1 at 2/1

Watford should be delighted with a haul of seven points from three tough games on their return to the Championship and they are worth backing at around 12/5 to win to nil at Birmingham on Tuesday.

The Hornets have beaten Sheffield United and Burnley 1-0 either side of a 1-1 draw with West Brom, another club likely to be in the promotion mix this season, and they can grind out victory at St Andrew’s.

Punters should not expect Watford to cut loose, especially after the departure of forward Emmanuel Dennis to Nottingham Forest, but they can stand firm against a Birmingham side who have failed to score in two of their first three league matches.

Best Midweek Bet: Watford win to nil at 12/5

Grimsby Town have recovered well from their opening-day defeat to Leyton Orient and they are unbeaten in three across all competitions heading into Tuesday’s visit of Carlisle.

The Mariners have kept clean sheets in their last two matches, defeating Crewe 4-0 in the League Cup before edging past Rochdale 1-0, and they should have enough to overcome perennial away strugglers Carlisle at around 5-4.

Paul Simpson’s men have failed to win any of their last six road games and although they have made a decent start to the season, their away issues could come back to haunt them again at Blundell Park.

Best Midweek Bet: Grimsby to win at 23/20

Barrow have made an excellent start to the season, winning their opening two fixtures before they took Blackpool to penalties in the EFL Cup. However, they were relegation favourites at the start of the season for a reason, and Saturday’s defeat may just be the start of a few.

Walsall have backed up claims of a play-off push by taking seven points from a possible nine, only denied a full complement in the 10th-minute of stoppage time at the weekend, the first goal they have conceded this season. Danny Johnson is also a man in form with five goals already this season and a price of around 2/1 looks decent for the Saddlers to win.

Best Midweek Bet: Walsall to win at 2/1
