IT'S great to have nearly a full card to choose from and there are plenty of options for punters this weekend.

Day one of the English season isn't a time to go cash crazy but there are some decent picks out there.

I'm focusing on many of the sides I've tipped to do well this season and start the five to follow with big-spenders Leicester in the lunchtime kick-off (12.30pm).

Sven Goran Eriksson has built a side to challenge for the title and they look a class above Coventry.

Leicester finished the season strongly, scoring nine in their last three games while Coventry failed to win any of their final four.

The gap between the sides has increased since then so look at Leicester for an away at
11-10 with the likes of William Hill and Ladbrokes.

Now it's down to League One and a look at Brentford. Uwe Rosler's side drew 4-4 at League One favourites Huddersfield on the final day of the season and that suggests they've got an attacking outlook.

Rosler has added highly-rated on-loan Celt Niall McGinn and prolific Crewe scorer Clayton Donaldson and they could go close.

Brentford should certainly take care of Yeovil at home on day one and are 5-6 with firms including William Hill, Ladbrokes and bet365 to do so.

In League Two I like the look of Shrewsbury who missed promotion by one point last season. Boss Graham Turner will be determined to go one better and has retained the bulk of his squad.

Opening-day opponents Plymouth face a struggle just to put a squad together and Shrewsbury seem tremendous value at 19-20 at William Hill.

Heading up to Scotland now and stopping off at Ross County where Morton are the visitors. Some people are tipping County for the title but I'm not sure why.

They've been less than impressive in the cups while Morton have started on fire with 11 goals against Stranraer and Alloa.

Strikers Andy Jackson and Paul di Giacomo look bang on form and I'm willing to risk an away at 5-2 at bet365.

Finally, I'm taking a Berwick side who cost me a pretty penny by winning at Partick last week. Berwick looked superb by all accounts and a repeat display will surely see them take full points from Elgin. The Wee Rangers are a best 7-4 at Chandler.

Five to follow

  • Leicester
  • Brentford
  • Shrewsbury
  • Morton
  • Berwick
  • Perm any 4 and all 5 (6 bets)
