It’s the new season’s first set of midweek Football League fixtures, and we’re hoping to win big with this 79/1 treble at SkyBet on the BTTS & Win market.
We’re backing three home teams to all seal important victories, but think the travelling fans in all three games will at least have a goal to cheer. If you think this is a little too risky, the straight BTTS treble is another option at odds of just over 6/1 with Coral.

MK Dons V Bolton Wanderers
After losing Saturday’s first home league game of the season, Karl Robinson’s Dons will be desperate to bounce back with a win against struggling Bolton. However, the newly promoted hosts shouldn’t expect everything their own way.
The home side have lost a couple of important players in 2015, but they’ve shown their ability to find the target with six goals in their two opening competitive fixtures. Saturday’s blank at Preston is a slight cause for concern. However, Rob Hall and co should fancy their chances in front of a weak Trotters backline.
Neil Lennon’s men have yet to score a goal these season, and will be determined to put that right at the Stadium: MK. The experience of Emile Heskey could be vital for the Trotters, who will expect to score against a side yet to keep a clean sheet, but there’s no doubt that their defensive issues could still allow the home side to prevail.
Neither defence looks particularly confident in the early parts of the campaign. However, with the home crowd behind them, we think the hosts will edge it.

Swindon Town V Port Vale
League One side Swindon Town have started the new campaign with three straight BTTS winners, and there are plenty of reasons to think this will continue against Port Vale. On this occasion, we’re also backing the Robins to secure three points.
Last year’s play-off finalists opened the season with an impressive 4-1 home win against Bradford and Mark Cooper will be hoping to see his side channel that attacking prowess against an away side that has drawn both of its league matches so far.
Vale haven’t been brilliant in front of goal but Robert Page’s side can at least hope to take advantage of Swindon’s vulnerable backline. Nonetheless, it seems likely that they’d need more than one strike to claim the points in this one.
Swindon should be confident of a win and, if on form, could easily score two or three goals. However, we’re backing Vale to get on the scoresheet too.

York City V Yeovil Town
Our final selection comes from League Two where struggling rivals York and Yeovil will both be looking for their first wins of the new league season. Each club will view this as a great chance to get off the mark, and attack must be the aim of the day for both managers.
Neither team is particularly comfortable at the back right now, which could make it a good day for the respective strikers. Russell Wilcox’s men have scored three times during their two competitive home games, and will expect to find the target again. However, it is also worth noting they’ve conceded twice on both occasions.
Yeovil have lost all three competitive matches this season, but they did find the target twice against Exeter on the opening day. Ryan Bird and Harry Cornick do have the quality to cause some problems for York’s poor defence, so Paul Sturrock’s men shouldn’t be too worried about the trip to Bootham Crescent.
Both teams are in major need of points, which is why we think there should be an emphasis on attack. Still, home advantage could prove to be the difference for York.
