After hitting a winning treble last weekend, we’re looking to double our delight with another three selections from this Saturday’s coupon. Care to join us?
At odds of 4/1, it would hardly be our biggest ever treble. Nonetheless, that profit would be a nice addition to end the month in style. Let’s hope that these six teams will score as expected.
Barnsley v Huddersfield Town
David Wagner’s Terriers have been in fantastic form, and will be backing themselves to gain promotion either automatically or through the play-offs. Despite that immense confidence, though, they shouldn’t expect to have things all their own way in a difficult trip to Oakwell.
The visitors have won six Championship fixtures on the spin, but Tuesday’s win over Reading was the first BTTS loser in five, and we’d expect to see more goals here, especially as strikers Elias Kachunga and Nahki Wells boast a combined tally of 19 league goals this season.
While Huddersfield are in great form, they have conceded more than they’ve scored on the road. Given that the Tykes have found the net 27 times in 17 home matches, the hosts are likely to find the target too. Still, they’ve also leaked 28, which offers more reason to bet against the home shutout.
Huddersfield registered a 2-1 win when these Yorkshire rivals met in the reverse clash. Another BTTS winner should be on the cards.
BTTS Yes @ 4/5
Peterborough United v Rochdale
League One rivals Peterborough and Rochdale both sit frustratingly just outside the play-offs at this stage. Having said that, three points could be the catalyst for a revival, which is why we envisage a fierce contest at London Road.
Goals have been a fairly common theme for Peterborough once more in 2016-17, which was underlined by Tuesday’s 4-1 loss against Southend. Five of the last seven league games here have ended in BTTS winners. With the likes of Tom Nichols and Marcus Maddison in attack, Posh should be fancied to find the target once again here.
Grant McCann’s men do concede on a regular basis too, though, and that should give confidence to Keith Hill’s visitors. Dale have only notched 13 on their travels, but last weekend’s 3-3 home draw with Charlton should hopefully set the tone for how things will pan out in this one.
Peterborough edged a five-goal game when the sides met at the Crown Oil Arena on the opening day. A similar scoreline in this one would suit us just fine.
BTTS Yes @ 7/10
Southport v Chester
While points haven’t exactly been a regular feature in Southport’s season, the National League strugglers have scored their fair share of goals this term. Andy Preece’s men will certainly need a few more if they’re going to avoid the drop, starting with Saturday’s home clash against Chester.
The hosts do boast 26 in 16 at Haig Avenue, including strikes in each of their last four. Given that the visitors have conceded 28 on the road, there’s no reason to think Southport will struggle goals for this one – even if they did fail to score at Woking last weekend.
Unfortunately, Southport’s defensive problems have been their downfall far too often, and are likely to cost them dearly once more. This should allow Chester to increase their tally of 21 away goals, which should in turn complete the BTTS winner.
The last four games here have been BTTS winners, as have Chester’s last seven on the road. While anything can happen in football, goals should be the theme of the day.
BTTS Yes @ 4/7
