The Coral Football Jackpot has developed out of the pools coupon you can still get in our betting stores, but this digital/mobile version has the advantage of no pen or pencil needed to fill it in!

This week our 15 featured fixtures come from the Premier League, Championship, Scottish Premiership, French Ligue 1 and Super Cup clashes in Germany and Spain.

You can find a full list of term and conditions below the digital football pools coupon. Read on below to see what our expert tipsters think about each of the matches that are part of the Coral Football Jackpot…

Burnley v Swansea: Home win

The Swans have lost firepower from their ranks and the hosts haven’t. A lot depends on Fernando Llorente doing well for the visitors at Turf Moor, while Sean Dyche has a strike pairing in Andre Gray and Sam Vokes. Three home points thus look on the cards here.

Crystal Palace v West Brom: Draw

Alan Pardew could be about to lose Yannick Bolasie to Everton and there’s no guarantee Palace will pull off the rumoured record signing of Christian Benteke in time for a home debut here. A share of the spoils, with the Baggies tough to beat under Tony Pulis, is thus worth backing.

Everton v Tottenham: Draw

Both of last season’s meetings finished level, and the Toffees are yet to really flex the financial muscle their takeover has given them. Spurs have a new striker in Vincent Janssen, but Ashley Williams should be up against him at Goodison Park, and these arrivals may cancel one another out. Side with honours being even.

Middlesbrough v Stoke: Home win

There is an awful lot to like about the recruitment Boro boss Aitor Karanka and chairman Steve Gibson have done at The Riverside this summer. Alvaro Negredo can be a real nuisance against the physical Potters defence, and there’s the guile of Viktor Fischer to consider to. Middlesbrough should get off to a winning start, then.

Southampton v Watford: Home win

Saints have won three of the last four to nil, conceding none to the Hornets since 2009. Both sides are under new management, but Walter Mazzarri’s expansive system used in previous jobs may prove too open for Premier League life. Side with Southampton on home turf.

Aberdeen v Hearts: Away win

The Jambos have won all three meetings in 2016 so far, and the Dons have lost formerly on-loan striker Simon Church from their attack. It’s worth backing Hearts to continue their fine form in this fixture this year here.

Norwich v Sheffield Wednesday: Home win

Alex Neil’s Canaries were so impressive when crushing Blackburn Rovers 4-1 on the road in their season opener, and now they’re back in Norfolk there is no reason why they cannot defeat the Owls.

Man City v Sunderland: Home win

What a baptism for David Moyes. It looks far easier for City counterpart Pep Guardiola, who should be looking to lay down a marker against a side that has perpetually struggled in recent seasons. A home banker, given the vast sums spent by Man City.

Metz v Lille: Away win

Euro 2016 final winning goalscorer Eder has turned his loan spell with Lille from Swansea permanent, and having delivered on that stage, he should be able to run riot against promoted Metz for the visitors.

Bournemouth v Man Utd: Away win

The difficult second season for Eddie Howe and the Cherries begins with them trying to potentially contain Paul Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. It’s a huge ask at Dean Court, where the Red Devils look capable of doing major damage.

Nancy v Lyon: Away win

As freshly promoted Ligue 1 club Nancy have only ever defeated French royalty Lyon twice in 19 attempts, succumbing to a 3-0 drubbing last time the two met, the Kids are a great shout to get their campaign off to a flyer against the newcomers.

Arsenal v Liverpool: Draw

It’s not just the two league draws between this pair last season that suggests another splitting of spoils, but that both are weak at the back. Arsenal may be at home but they are defensively depleted so, with Liverpool’s focus on attacking transfers, a game with goals galore and a score draw could be on the cards.

Bayern Munich v Borussia Dortmund: Home win

In this German Super Cup clash, giants Bayern could be the team worth backing across 90 minutes after minimal changes to a winning machine over the summer. While, Dortmund have lost several key player pieces and haven’t vanquished the Munich men in any of their past six frays across all competitions.

Sevilla v Barcelona: Away win

In this Spanish Super Cup scuffle mighty Barca are of course favourites in 90 minutes to win, having slain Andalusian outfit Sevilla in six of their last eight encounters, including several drubbings by high scorelines.

Chelsea v West Ham: Draw

The Hammers will fancy pinching a point at Stamford Bridge as they did so last season. In this Premier League duel big game players the Irons have the advantage of coaching continuity, while the Blues will still be getting used to Antonio Conte’s methods.
