Back three teams to win without keeping a clean sheer, place a £10 stake, and win £650 profit. That’s our plan of action on Saturday with the 65/1 shot on the BTTS & Win coupon. Let’s hope it will provide a second winner in three attempts.
It’s not an easy bet to land, but we have every reason to think all three of our selected games can go the way we want them. For the sake of a tenner, you don’t want to be left feeling like an April Fool.
Here are our selections.
Huddersfield Town v Burton Albion
As things stand, Nigel Clough’s Brewers are just outside of the Championship drop zone. However, it’s a little too close for comfort and they could do with picking up some points on Saturday. Unfortunately, a trip to the John Smith’s Stadium is arguably the worst game they could have possibly picked.
The visitors have been scoring goals, including three in their most recent clash a fortnight ago. Given that the hosts lost their last game 4-0, Burton can certainly be confident about adding to their tally of 17 away goals. Having said that, the fact that they’ve won just two away games all season makes for pretty poor reading.
Huddersfield’s home record has largely been great, bringing 27 goals and 13 wins from 18 matches. David Wagner’s side boasts plenty of goals up top with the likes of Nahki Wells and Elias Kachunga more than capable of scoring against an away team that has shipped 53 in total – including five in their last match.
The Terriers will be strongly fancied to win this one. Let’s just hope that the visitors can grab a consolation.
BTTS & Huddersfield Win @ 3/1 with William Hill
Peterborough United v Charlton Athletic
Goals have been a common feature at London Road in recent times, with each of Peterborough’s last five home games ending in BTTS winners. We have no reason to think the goals will dry up as they take on Charlton.
After all, the visiting Addicks have scored 26 and conceded 30 in their 20 away games while each of their last six League One matches have produced goals at both ends too. Karl Robinson’s should avoid the drop, and their qualities in the attacking third are the main reason. Nonetheless, it’s hard to overlook their defensive vulnerabilities in this one.
Charlton have failed to register a clean sheet in 13, and Posh’s frontline of Craig Mackail-Smith and Tom Nichols should have enough firepower to lead Grant McCann’s men to victory by increasing the tally of 32 home goals by at least a couple more.
Both teams are better in attack than defence, which is why we’re opting for the BTTS winner. On this occasion, though, Posh’s quality should shine through.
BTTS & Peterborough Win @ 17/5 with William Hill
York City v Braintree Town
National League outfit York City have done magnificently well to reignite their hopes of survival, and a run of 10 points from a possible 15 now leaves them just four points adrift with a game in hand. If Gary Mills can inspire another victory from the Minstermen on Saturday, the great escape will look more possible than ever.
The hosts will have every reason for confidence given Braintree’s recent lack of form. The visitors have been picking up points, and should still avoid the drop. However, the Essex club has now lost two on the spin. On a brighter note, Michael Cheek and co. have scored 27 on their travels. Unfortunately, they’ve also shipped 32.
Despite their form, York don’t keep clean sheets. They’ve now been nine games without a shutout and have conceded a total of 61 league goals. Then again, the fact they’ve only shipped 24 at Bootham Crescent suggests that they might restrict Braintree to just the one strike.
If they can do that, the home side’s attacking players are more than capable of producing the goods needed for a win.
