Last weekend saw us pick up a 4/1 winner and we’re hoping to pick up more profit this Saturday with these three selections.
Our six selected teams offer odds of just under 4/1, and we have every reason to believe that all teams can find the target. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that they do.
Stoke City V Everton
Our first selection comes from the Britannia as two of the biggest movers on transfer deadline day do battle in what will hopefully be a repeat of the drama seen in the 3-4 reverse clash at Goodison Park in December.
There’s certainly enough reason to fancy goals given that Stoke have scored 13 home goals and Everton boast 16 on the road. Meanwhile, Roberto Martinez also has one of the league’s best strikers in the form of Romelu Lukaku while the Potters know that the Toffees have claimed just one away win so far.
Stoke will be particularly eager to seal their first win in five competitive matches, and the record signing of Gilbert Imbula should give Mark Hughes’s side a lift. Nevertheless, their defence is far weaker without Ryan Shawcross, which is why a clean sheet looks unlikely.
Even if we don’t see the seven goals, both teams should find the target.
BTTS Yes @ 4/5
Chesterfield V Peterborough United
League One’s Peterborough United have been a firm favourite on the BTTS market this season, and Graham Westley’s men will be confident having scored twice at West Brom just one week ago. However, the Posh shouldn’t expect to have things all their own way as they take on a spirited Chesterfield.
The visitors have been in great scoring form on the road, netting a total of 27 in 14 league matches. Considering Chesterfield have shipped 26 in 14 at the Proact Stadium, there should be little doubt about Peterborough’s ability to score.
However, the Spireites have hit 23 home goals and should be capable of capitalising on a Peterborough backline that has shipped 21. With Sylvan Ebanks-Blake and Lee Novak in attack, Danny Wilson’s men certainly have the firepower to convert any chances.
Chesterfield have been involved in five straight BTTS winners since losing at London Road on Boxing Day. Expect to see another flurry of goals here.
BTTS Yes @ 4/7
Newport County V Barnet
Martin Allen’s Bees make Saturday’s trip to Rodney Parade on the back of two rare 0-0s in League Two, but we think goals will be flowing as they take on struggling Newport.
Barnet have only scored 14 in 14 matches on the road, but the firepower of Michael Gash and John Akinde should fancy their chances of goals against a poor home side that has conceded 23 and won just once in 13 matches in Wales.
On the other hand, Warren Feeney’s side will take confidence from last weekend’s shock win at Morecambe. They have at least scored 16 times on home soil too while Barnet’s record of 31 goals conceded on the road is another reason to predict at least one strike for the hosts.
Both teams need a win. While that cannot happen, we do think both will find the target.
BTTS Yes @ 8/11
