Saturday’s BTTS treble comes courtesy of the Premier League, League One, and National League. With a potential payout of over £54 from a £10 stake, it has to be worth a punt.
All six teams still have something to play for, which should help out at this stage of the season. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for goals, goals, goals.
Bournemouth V West Bromwich Albion
Alan Pardew’s West Brom’s awful form has seen them fall to the brink of relegation, but they are due to end their losing streak sooner rather than later. Even if they do manage it at the Vitality, though, it’s hard to see them keeping a shutout. As such, we’re backing a BTTS winner.
The Baggies have scored in 11 of their last 15 competitive matches while Bournemouth have conceded 25 from their 15 home games. So, while goals haven’t been a regular occurrence on the road, the likes of Salomon Rondon can at least be fancied to find the target during the afternoon’s proceedings.
Nonetheless, Eddie Howe’s will see this as a chance to grab a vital victory. A return of 21 home goals is promising, especially against the league’s worst side. Having scored in seven competitive games on the spin, it seems likely that the Cherries will find the target once more through the likes of Callum Wilson and Junior Stanislas.
Bournemouth’s last five matches have ended in BTTS winners. Another is likely to be on the card on Saturday.
Oxford United V Peterborough United
Goals have been a common feature for League One rivals Oxford and Peterborough this term. There’s no reason to think that trend will end as the sides meet at the Kassam on Saturday.
Oxford’s 17 home matches have produced 27 goals for and 28 against while Posh’s 17 on the road have delivered 26 for them and 21 for their opponents. When added to the fact that the reverse clash was a BTTS winner with five goals scored, there’s every chance that this one will provide great entertainment.
Peterborough boast the division’s top scorer in the form of Jack Marriott while six of their las t seven matches have ended in BTTS winners. While Oxford’s form has been terrible Jonathan Obika and Wesley Thomas have the type of quality needed to cause problems for the visitors too. Moreover, they did score in the loss at Wimbledon last week.
While we’d edge towards an away win, we feel that the smart money is with goals.
Solihull Moors V Torquay United
Down in the National League, relegation rivals Solihull and Torquay are both in desperate need of three points and will each view Saturday’s meeting as a great opportunity to do that. With a little luck, this should lead to an attack-minded game at Damson Park.
Mark Yates’ hosts could climb out of the relegation zone with a win and should be fancied to increase their tally of 20 home goals, particularly as the visitors have conceded 34 in 19 away matches. Darren Carter and co. are more than capable of getting on the scoresheet.
Torquay have seen improvements in recent weeks, though. A return of 10 points from a possible 21 is hardly perfect but is a lot better than their earlier efforts. While Gary Owers men still only boast 15 away goals, the fact that Solihull have leaked 24 and are of a similar quality should give them a great source of optimism.
It’s arguably the most important game of the day in the division. Let’s hope it lives up to the billing.
