We pick our best bets for Friday with a 5/1 treble at Betfair
Stuttgart v FC Koln - Bundesliga - 19:30
After a fantastic 2016/17 campaign for FC Koln where they qualified for the Europa League via finishing 5th in the Bundesliga, the club and fans have been brought back down to reality after their start to this campaign. FC Koln are without a win in the Bundesliga this term, with six defeats in seven league games; netting just twice this season.
Losing top goalscorer Anthony Modeste in the summer transfer window has hindered FC Koln's attacking options, which is noted in their lack of goals this season and have failed to score on the road this campaign. Stuttgart are without a win in their last three league games, taking just seven points in seven league games; however, all seven points have come on home soil. Stuttgart should win this game but backing under 2.5 goals looks the best bet here. Under 2.5 Goals has landed in five of Stuttgart's seven league games this season while FC Koln have failed to score four of their last five league games. Under 2.5 goals takes our pick at the Mercedes-Benz Arena.
Bristol City v Burton Albion - Championship - 19:45
Lee Johnson's Bristol City are riding high in the Championship in 4th spot and are unbeaten in their last nine league games; winning three of their last four. Burton Albion, however, are edging closer to the relegation zone, just one point above Birmingham City who sit 22nd. Nigel Clough's men are without a win in their last three league games, they've failed to score in five of their last six league games and are yet to taste victory on the road this season.
Bristol City are currently trading at around 4/11 which is just a bit too short to back outright, but looking at the handicaps could be the best way to play this one on Friday. Bristol City's last three wins have all seen the -1 handicap land, beating Derby (4-1), Bolton (2-0) and Ipswich (3-1). With Burton's poor record in front of goal over the last six league games and Bristol City unbeaten at Ashton Gate this season, we're backing Bristol City to win by at least two goals.
St Johnstone v Rangers - Scottish Premiership - 19:45
Both Teams To Score is the best bet as St Johnstone take on Rangers this evening. St Johnstone have won just one of their last five league games but remain unbeaten at home in the Scottish Premiership this season, with three wins in four.
Rangers are unbeaten on the road with three wins in four, so it looks to a be a toss up on who can grab three points at McDiarmid Park but backing goals should be the best bet here. Both Teams To Score has landed in four of St Johnstone's last five league games and has featured in all four of Rangers' away league games this campaign. BTTS has featured all four of the league meetings between the two sides last season, we're backing it to land once again on Friday evening.
