Our weekend treble on the BTTS coupon is a 5/1 offering, and we have every reason to be confident about starting February in style with goals from our six chosen teams.
The three games selected come from the Premier League, League One and League Two. With teams now able to focus fully on football following the close of the transfer window, it has to be worth a punt.
Leicester City V Swansea City
Premier League strugglers Swansea City have struggled for goals on the road, but have seen a noticeable improvement in performance levels since the appointment of Carlos Carvalhal. With Andre Ayew now back at the Liberty Stadium too, the visitors can head to the King Power in good spirits.
The Jacks have picked up some decent results in recent weeks, and enter this weekend’s action having found the net in five consecutive games in all competitions. Given the fact that Leicester have started conceding again after a run of clean sheets, an away goal could be the offing.
Even so, Claude Puel’s Foxes will fancy their chances. Jamie Vardy and Shinji Okazaki should provide plenty of attacking threat while the club’s ability to resist Manchester City’s advances for Riyad Mahrez could be crucial too.They should increase their tally of 18 in 12 home games, but may also see the figure of 14 in the conceded bracket climb.
The hosts should get a draw at the very least. Still, a BTTS winner seems the best bet for this one, which is why we’ve included it in our treble.

Oldham Athletic V Bradford City
Goals have been a common feature at Boundary Park this season, where Oldham have both scored and conceded 24 times in 15 League One matches. With Bradford as the visitors, there’s no reason to think the trend will end this weekend.
The visiting Bantams have scored 25 times on the road while the likes of Charlie Wyke and Paul Taylor should give the play-off hopefuls a great chance of scoring here. Despite sitting 17 places above their opponents, however, it might not be an easy afternoon for Stuart McCall’s men, who enter this clash having lost five competitive matches on the spin.
Conversely, the Latics have won two and drawn two from their last six competitive home games. Perhaps more tellingly, each of those matches has served up a BTTS winner. Given that Bradford have shipped 20 on their travels, another one looks likely.
The teams shared a 1-1 draw back at Valley Parade in October. A similar outcome on Saturday would suit us fine.

Lincoln City V Swindon Town
In League Two, Danny Cowley’s Imps will still be holding onto their faint hopes of back-to-back promotions and would love to carry their fine January form into February with three points on Saturday. However, they shouldn’t expect to have things all their own way against the Robins.
Lincoln do boast 25 goals in 15 matches at Sincil Bank while they also have the incentive of knowing that they can leapfrog their opponents with three points here. Matt Rhead, Matthew Green and co. have now scored in eight consecutive matches too, and should be fancied to extend that run here. Even if the Swindon backline is pretty tight.
The visitors are certainly capable of scoring as well. A return of 26 goals has seen them register an impressive 10 wins in 14 matches on the road in League Two while David Flitcroft’s men are in great form overall with four wins in five. Luke Norris and co. should find the net in Lincolnshire.
It was Lincoln who grabbed a 1-0 win in the reverse clash. On this occasion, though, we’re backing Swindon to grab a goal too.
