Soccer Saturday Super 6: Our team have their expert tips for Saturday's games

Our football team has done your Super 6 homework for you as they give you their predictions for this Saturday's games in the £1 million game.

There are four Premier League games and two Sky Bet Championship offerings this week for you to try and win Jeff's £1 million - we've got out football team's verdicts and predictions for each.


Super 6 predictions

Bournemouth v Cardiff

Favourites for the drop Cardiff mark their Premier League return with a trip to Bournemouth, who are now a well-established Premier League side and have made some big signings this summer aimed at beating last season's 12th-placed finish.

Neil Warnock performed wonders to get Cardiff promoted, he'll need a miracle to keep them up and it looks like he'll be given a taster of how tough life will be in the Premier League with a testing away day first up.

Super 6 Prediction: Bournemouth 2-0 Cardiff

(Sky Bet odds: 7/1)


Fulham v Crystal Palace

Plenty of new faces in this one so hard to judge just how they will match up but Fulham have made a huge splash by spending over £100m and with the likes of Mitrovic, Schurrle and Seri available there's enough to suggest they can get off to a winning start back in the Premier League.

Roy Hodgson has made a few decent moves of his own during the summer as he returns to his former side and they should avoid their early season struggles of last year, but the Cottagers can ride their promotion wave to just pinch it on the opening day.

Super 6 game Prediction: Fulham 2-1 Crystal Palace

(Sky Bet odds: 17/2)


Huddersfield v Chelsea

David Wagner kept his side up against the odds last season and those odds have not improved again this year with promoted Fulham and Wolves spalshing the cash to try and stay up. It's a tough opener but one they will relish given Chelsea arrive with a new coach and a world of issues.

Maurizio Sarri has £71m keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga available but may opt for Willy Caballero in goal, while his World Cup stars have only just returned to training. It's a great time to play Chelsea but the Terriers struggled to score goals last season so a stalemate seems reasonable.

Super 6 Prediction: Huddersfield 0-0 Chelsea

(Sky Bet odds: 9/1)


Watford v Brighton

Not a lot of goals from either side last season, which was reflected in just one goal being scored in their two meetings, while they were separated by just one place and one point in the final table. They also both won just one of the last nine last season and there promises to be not much between them again.

The venue may be all important here as the Seagulls had the worst away record in the league last season while Watford's recent home record, plus their record in home openers, points to the hosts having the edge in what should be a close contest.

Super 6 Prediction: Watford 1-0 Brighton

(Sky Bet odds: 5/1)


Aston Villa v Wigan

Villa bounced back from their play-off final defeat and a largely disrupted summer with victory over Hull on opening weekend and will remain confident that they can wrap up victory in front of their own fans.

Wigan though are no pushovers and beat Sheffield Wednesday 3-2 last time out. The Latics were the best away team in League One as they stormed to the title, picking up six more points on the road than Blackburn in second.

Super 6 Prediction: Aston Villa 1-1 Wigan

(Sky Bet odds: 5/1)


Norwich v West Brom

West Brom have had a tough start to life in the Sky Bet Championship with an opening day defeat to Bolton being followed up with a draw against Nottingham Forest.

They could probably consider themselves lucky that they picked up a point against Forest, and they travel to a new-look Norwich side who have added seven new faces to their squad this summer.

Super 6 Prediction: Norwich 2-1 West Brom

(Sky Bet odds: 9/1)
