We’ve picked 10 matches from across Britain that could end in score draws this weekend.

Leicester have faced tough opponents in their opening Premier League matches but they could get a point at Huddersfield.  West Ham have ended their winless run and can carry that momentum to the Hawthorns.  We’ve provided head to head and recent form statistics for ten games we think could end in score draws in our Classic Pools competition this weekend.
