We pick out our best bets for Saturday 19th August with fixtures in the Football League and SPL with a 13/1 accumulator at Coral.
Oldham Athletic v Wigan Athletic - League One - 15:00
It's been a solid start back in League One for Wigan Athletic and we fully expect them to grab another three points against Oldham on Saturday. Paul Cook was an excellent manager to bring in to the DW Stadium, Wigan have kept most of the players that brought so much glory in 2015/16 while Nick Powell has started the season in brilliant form.
Oldham have lost each of their two league games this season and sit 23rd in the table and could be in trouble for relegation to League Two this season. Wigan have impressed in both victories this season, especially smashing four past Bury and secured a huge win in Milton Keynes on the opening weekend of the season - at the prices, Wigan look huge value.
Coventry City v Newport County - League Two - 15:00
Coventry City sit top of League Two, winning their opening league games and are yet to concede a goal. The Sky Blues eased their way past Notts County on the opening weekend of the season, sticking three goals past Kevin Nolan's side while also looked comfortable in their 2-0 victory at Grimsby.
Newport County have drawn their opening two league games, picking up a big point at Stevenage after going 3-1 down to grab a 3-3 draw while also drawing 1-1 at Crewe. Mark Robins' side have made a solid start to life in League Two and will want to bounce back to League One at the first opportunity. Coventry are unbeaten in their last six league games at the Ricoh Arena. They look a solid bet to make it three wins in their opening three league games.
Luton Town v Colchester United - League Two - 15:00
Luton hammered eight past Yeovil on the opening weekend of the season, they're still massive favourites to get promoted to League One this season but that was slightly dented in their 1-0 away defeat to Barnet. However, we fancy the Hatters to beat Colchester in another convincing fashion.
Colchester United have won just one of their last 11 away games in League Two, beating a dreadful Leyton Orient side at the end of last season. Luton are unbeaten in their last seven league games at Kenilworth Road and they should make it eight home games unbeaten with victory over the U's. Luton Town to grab their second win of the season.
St Johnstone v Partick Thistle - Scotland Premiership - 15:00
St Johnstone look superb value for three points at McDiarmid Park on Saturday afternoon. Tommy Wright's side sit top of the SPL ahead of Celtic after their opening two league games, and look a solid bet to make it three wins in three games against Partick.
St Johnstone hammered Motherwell 4-1 last time out making it five wins in their last eight home games. Partick Thistle have lost both games so far this campaign and are now without a win in their last eight league games. St Johnstone boasted the better H2H record in 2016/17 with three wins in four, we're backing them to make it four wins in five.
