First/anytime goalscorer tips: Ings can sting Toffees in 174/1 acca
First goalscorer/anytime goalscorer tips
The Championship is the main focus for Saturday's first goalscorer and anytime goalscorer tips, with three of our selections coming from England's second tier.
Last weekend proved to be a frustrating one for our tips as we picked the wrong defenders to score for Liverpool and Brighton, but we are concentrating on strikers for Saturday's 3pm matches.
Once again we have picked out two players each from the first and anytime goalscorer odds which can be combined as a four-fold acca at odds of 174/1 and also qualify for a 7.5% bonus thanks to the BetStars acca bonus.
Here are our best goalscorer bets for this weekend:
- Cauley Woodrow to score first 5/1
- Sam Baldock to score first 7/2
- Danny Ings to score at any time 7/5
- Jarrod Bowen to score at any time 17/10
And if you're feeling lucky, combining all our goalscorer tips into a 4 fold accumulator can be backed at almost 174/1.
This weekend's first goalscorer tips
Cauley Woodrow (Barnsley) vs Stoke
The Championship's bottom two clubs meet at Oakwell where a win for either side still would not be enough to propel them out of the relegation zone.
The Tykes' hopes rest on the shoulders of their top scorer Woodrow, who has bagged six goals this season and takes 3.8 shots per game - the second highest in the Championship behind Fulham's Aleksandar Mitrovic.
The 24-year-old forward notched 16 goals in their promotion-winning campaign in League One last season and has adapted well to life in a higher division.
Woodrow has also broken the deadlock on three occasions, including the 2-2 draw at West Brom and the 3-1 home defeat by Brentford at the end of September when he struck after just 59 seconds.
Stoke have the third leakiest defence and have conceded the first goal in five of their seven away games this season, so Woodrow should get chances to score first at 5/1.
Sam Baldock (Reading) vs Luton
Baldock is enjoying a new lease of life under Reading manager Mark Bowen and has scored in the last two games in which he has started.
The former Bristol City and Brighton striker earned the Royals a point with a 74th-minute equaliser in a 2-2 draw at QPR in his first league start of the season and then scored what turned out to be the winner against Millwall last weekend.
With Reading having taken seven points from nine since Bowen took charge, Baldock is likely to be in Saturday's starting line-up to face a Luton team that have conceded 27 goals and are letting in almost two goals a game away from home.
Baldock is 7/2 to draw first blood against the Hatters, who have conceded first in six of their eight games on the road this season.

This weekend's anytime goalscorer tips
Danny Ings (Southampton) vs Everton
Southampton are involved in a relegation battle over the weekend although not many would have thought it would be Everton struggling for points at this stage of the season.
One player that can benefit from their troubles is Saints striker Ings, who has bagged four goals this season and scored in two of the three games against Everton in the previous campaign.
The former Liverpool forward was on a run of five goals in four games when Southampton ran into Leicester on that fateful Friday night.
Ings takes an average of 2.2 shots, although that figure is much higher at 2.8 at St Mary's, so 7/5 in the anytime goalscorer odds looks a fair price to find the net against a team with just one point from five away games.
Jarrod Bowen (Hull) vs West Brom
Bowen scored 22 goals for Hull last season and already has nine in the current campaign, just two behind the Championship's top scorer Mitrovic.
The 22-year-old striker also scored against Preston in the Carabao Cup and last weekend became the fastest Hull player to reach 10 goals in a season for 15 years when he struck his fifth goal in four games in a superb 3-0 win at Fulham.
Despite sitting at the top of the table, West Brom have conceded in 11 of their 15 games - the joint highest in the division - and have conceded exactly two goals in three of their previous five outings.
Bowen's recent goal glut has come against Fulham, Nottingham Forest, QPR and Derby, so another top-quality side like the Baggies should hold no fear for one of the hottest properties around.
At 17/10 in the anytime goalscorer odds, Bowen looks good value to find the net with one of the 3.5 shots he takes on average per game.
