This Saturday’s BTTS treble is a tempting 5.75/1 shot from England’s top five divisions, and we’re hoping these six teams can provide us with a winning formula.
It’s an exciting moment in the season as teams battle to give themselves the best shot at achieving those seasonal targets. Let’s hope that our six chosen clubs here will keep their attacking momentum rolling with at least one goal each on Saturday.
Fulham v Wigan Athletic
Championship strugglers Wigan have endured a difficult season, but things are improving under Warren Joyce. The Latics head to Craven Cottage on Saturday knowing that a win would give their survival hopes a serious boost, and they can be quietly confident about leaving the capital with a positive result.
As well as scoring more goals on their travels than at the DW, the visitors have bolstered their attack with the addition of Omar Bogle along with a couple of other decent signings. Meanwhile, the fact they’ve picked up seven points from the last four games will give them every reason for additional optimism in the final third against a home side that has shipped 18 in just 14 home games.
Having said that, Fulham do score a lot of home goals too. The Cottagers boast 25 in the league while they hit four FA Cup goals past Hull in their last home match. In fact, Slavia Jokanovic’s side have found the target in 10 competitive home games here, although only three of those have brought clean sheets for the hosts.
Both teams have reason to believe that they’ll score while they’re each in desperate need of points, albeit for contrasting reasons. It should be an intense contest, and we’re hopeful that it will bring goals.

Stevenage v Wycombe Wanderers
Goals have been a common theme at the Lamex this term, with 52 goals being split evenly for and against League Two side Stevenage. We have no reason to believe the action will dry up as they prepare to entertain Wycombe.
Darren Sarll’s men are certainly stronger in attack than they are in defence, netting in all but two of their 14 home games whilst simultaneously registering just one clean sheet. With Matt Godden leading the line, they’ll always have a chance of scoring, even against a side currently sitting in the play-offs.
While Wycombe are still scoring goals, their form hasn’t been great. They’ve won just two of the last seven in all competitions. More crucially, at least in terms of the selection, nine of their last 10 have been BTTS winners while Scott Kashket and co. have scored 17 league goals in 14 away goals.
They should be optimistic about increasing that tally here. However, they have shipped 22 on their travels. Given that Stevenage enter the game looking for a third straight win, we’d expect the hosts to score too.

Torquay United v Macclesfield Town
It’s been a tough season for Kevin Nicholson’s Torquay in the National League, but their home goals could well be enough to secure their survival. The Gulls have hit 23 in 15 games at Plainmoor, which has been enough to pick up 24 of their 33 points. Even if they fail to increase that on Saturday, it’s unlikely to be through fault of their strikers.
Brett Williams and co. have failed to find the target just once in the last seven outings in Devon, but they’ve also registered just one shutout in that time. While they will fancy their chances of scoring again on home turf, it’s likely that they will be joined on the scoresheet.
After all, the visiting Silkmen boast 20 away goals while they enter this clash having won six of their last seven in all competitions. John Askey will demand more of the same as his men look to resurrect their play-off hopes.
It could go either way but, if one team is to take all three points, there’s a good chance that they will need two goals to do it. As long as they each score one, we couldn’t care less.
