Just one win this season with our treble on the Match result and Both Teams to Score market will put you in profit and we are hoping this week is where we come up trumps. Goals are starting to build up thick and fast and we think we have chosen some cracking selections. Take a look at this weekends match result and BTTS tips:
Manchester City v Arsenal– 12.45pm Saturday
Man City to win & BTTS is 13/5 with Ladbrokes
The big one of the weekends is here at The Etihad with two of the in form sides in the country go one on one- Arsenal and Manchester City. The pair have title aspirations and come the end of the season they make look back at this tie as to where it all went “wrong” or where it all went “right”. City will be everyone’s favourites to win here, their home record is exemplary and they have already turned over Tottenham Hotspur 6-0, Everton 3-0 and have seen off big rivals Manchester United 4-1 earlier on in the season. Negredo and Aguero were dropped to the bench on Tuesday night against Bayern to keep them nice and fresh to score a few goals against Arsenal on Saturday.
Arsenal are the team to beat though, they’re top of the league by five points and have six points on City who lie in fourth. The Gunners will see themselves as favourites here and will be looking to prove critics wrong who believe Arsenal don’t have the strength to beat the top sides away from The Emirates. Back in November, Arsenal lost 1-0 at Old Trafford to United and have yet to play Chelsea, Liverpool or Spurs away.
This is an opportunity to build a larger lead at the top and will know The Citizens are likely to score at some point so Arsenal will have to keep themselves in the game by getting a goal. Apart from the blank against the Champions they have scored in every other away game across all competitions during the first half of the campaign and I can see them doing so again in the early kick off.
Everton v Fulham – 5.30pm Saturday
Everton to win & BTTS is 23/10 with Ladbrokes
Roberto Martinez has hit the ground running at Everton having taken over from David Moyes in the summer with the fans having no complaints about the results accrued thus far. Last weekend they took away an important point at The Emirates, via a 1-1 draw and before that a trip to Old Trafford resulted in a 1-0 victory, courtesy of a goal from flying full back Seamus Coleman.
Confidence couldn’t be higher and the manager has them playing open and attacking football which looks great for goals. The bookies have them big favourites for a win, and considering they’re still unbeaten at Goodison Park after the visits of Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea, you can see why The Toffees are shortly priced.
You would be forgiven if you asked- why do you think Fulham have a chance of a goal here against in form Everton? Well since Rene Meulensteen took over the reins from the sub-standard Martin Jol, there has been a positive response from both players and fans.
At home to Spurs in the Dutchman’s first game in charge the Cottagers lost 2-1 but played with intent to find goals which has been lacking this season. This attacking play was taken a step further when Aston Villa visited Craven Cottage last Sunday, the game ended with a 2-0 home win. Everton are likely to be far to strong for the relegation candidates from London but with their new found self-belief I can see them getting a goal.
Bradford City v Leyton Orient – 3.00pm Saturday
Leyton Orient to win & BTTS is 19/5 with Ladbrokes
League leaders Leyton Orient make the trip north to take on new promoted Bradford City and the game couldn’t be more set for goals. Orient will be aware that not only do they sit top of League One but they also head up the away league table with seven victories from ten games on the road. In those ten fixtures, The O’s have managed to hit the back of the net an incredible 24 times.
Even better for this specific market, they have scored in every single away tie this season and have conceded in their previous eight ties. I believe Leyton Orient will have too much on Saturday but as their results reflect they’re always liable to concede.
Opposition Bradford, will be very pleased with the start they have made since gaining promotion from League Two, currently sitting in 8th place, they may even mount a challenge for a play off place.
At Valley Parade, the fans have seen an enormous 29 goals go in at either end in just nine games meaning the chances are they will see at least another three goals on Saturday. The Bantams recent home form has seen them struggle for results having only picked up the single victory in six games; however they did manage to score in five of those games. Bradford will give it a good go on Saturday and will score at some point but I can see their poor form continuing with another defeat
