IT'S been the usual tough start to the season but as the weeks past we'll start to see some trends and it will become easier to pick winners.
My best success so far this season has been on goals lines and aways.
The Championship, for example, has produced 18 away wins to 12 at home and that's been a problem for followers of favourites.
However, for the first time this season several homes really jumped out at me although I'm not surprisingly given the Championship a wide berth.
I'm starting in League One with a Charlton side who have come flying out of the traps.
They sit top with three wins out of three and all have been against decent opposition.
Next up are a Scunthorpe side who have struggled on their return to League One with just two points. Take Charlton at 4-5 with William Hill and Chandler.
Another side who started well are MK Dons and they tackle a Chesterfield outfit still finding their feet after promotion.
Ironically, my next choice are Wimbledon who won't rest until they're sitting above MK Dons in the league set-up.
The League Two new boys are going about things the right way after successive away wins followed their much-hyped opening-day defeat to Bristol Rovers.
Wimbledon are at home to a Hereford outfit reeling after a 4-0 defeat at home to Macclesfield followed a 3-0 loss to Morecambe.
Hereford will need to show all of their traditional resilience but I reckon a Wimbledon side who have scored two goals in each of their games this season will be too strong. Wimbledon are 5-6 at Chandler.
Staying in League Two I'll take a chance on Port Vale. Micky Adams' side remain unbeaten despite a tough start to the season and a home meeting with Accrington should provide a decent opportunity for three points. Back this at 23-20 with Chandler.
Finally, I was temped to add in Chelsea at a best 3-10 with William Hill but then you all know to back the Blues who have won 10 in a row against West Brom.
Instead I'll gamble on Clyde whose defence last season was even worse than Hearts' in Europe. Boss Jim Duffy, a fine central defender in his days, has stiffened up the backline while adding a bit of class up front.
Result? Clyde sit second in the table after an unbeaten start that has seen them score twice in all four competitive games.
Next up is a home clash with a Montrose side who stopped the rot last week with a 3-0 win against Elgin. Was that a flash in the pan? It might have been because in three previous games they conceded 11 goals.
That's the kind of defending that Spurs witnessed at Tynecastle on Thursday and Duffy's boys can take advantage. They are a best 1-1 with bet365.
