Accumulator Tip

19:45
Reading to Win
at Coventry
Reason for tip
Coventry have lost four of their last five matches, while league leaders Reading have claimed seven wins in their first eight games of the season. The Royals come into this game on the back of three straight wins and they look well priced to pick up another.

Both Teams To Score
Genk vs Eupen
Reason for tip
Genk have seen each of their last seven league games finish with both teams finding the back of the net. Five of Eupen's last six games have seen both teams find the net, while six of the last eight meetings between the two have seen both teams score.
20:00
Both Teams To Score
Wolverhampton vs Crystal Palace
Reason for tip
Only Fulham have failed to score at Molineux this season, while the Cottagers had chances to punish Wolves. Newcastle took a similar chance late on Sunday when they drew 1-1 here and we expect this one to go in the same direction with four of Palace's last five games seeing both teams score.

at Eibar
Reason for tip
Cadiz have won all three of their away games this season to nil and they come into this game unbeaten in four La Liga games. Meanwhile, Eibar are winless at home this season, scoring just once in four games here.
