After a short international break, we welcome back a domestic coupon and have what we think are three excellent BTTS selections for Saturday. Check out our treble for the weekend which pays a very healthy £ for a £10 stake.
Their BTTS odds are getting better every week and we highly recommend you get an account there.
Cardiff City v Fulham – 3.00pm Saturday
Both teams to score odds – 10/13 – 888sport
Surely there will be no way back for the loser here as 20th take on 19th in the Premier League. The proverbial ‘six pointer’ seems as relevant as it ever will be and both sides would have marked this down as three points on their quest for a great escape. Most will agree that the pair have been the poorest so far in the division, but a win could be the boost they need to turn their season around. I cannot see a clean sheets being handed out on Saturday
It may be a surprise that I have picked a market which requires Cardiff to score as they haven’t done in their last four matches. A shocking stat, but today in a game they just must win they face the worst defence in the division. Fulham haven’t kept a clean sheet away from home since the opening game of the season when they beat Sunderland at the Stadium of Light 1-0 courtesy of a Kasami winner. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs three points and if they cannot do it here, where will they?
Fulham have primed record signing Kostas Mitroglou for this match. A month after he signed he has only managed 30 minutes away to West Brom where he was unfit and pretty useless. Since then he has been on a strict regime to get him ready for this tie where they will unleash him, which then in turn should save their season going forward. Well that’s the plan.
Due to Fulham’s dreadful defence, they have found themselves 1-0 down in almost three quarters of their games, and therefore have to go on the hunt for goals. The Cottagers cannot rely on their back four and have to just out score the opposition each game, which is just what we like here at Goals Galore.
Notts County v Leyton Orient – 3.00pm Saturday
Both teams to score odds – 7/9 – 888sport
Notts County are in the unfortunate position of being bottom of the league and are desperate for points to save them from dropping in to League Two once more. Their challenge certainly does not get easier as they welcome this season’s success story of Leyton Orient who are second in the division and if they carry on the way they are the O’s will be finding themselves playing Championship football next year. Plenty on the line for both sides.
Notts County need results and another defeat will just not do. Five points away from safety at present, but this may be extended after the weekend if results do not go their way and the Magpies may find themselves being cut away from the pack. Despite their undesirable position, they try to play football the right way and at home they have a far better record with almost three quarters of their points being won at Meadow Lane. Each game here will be vital as they cannot rely on away performances, and even though a positive result may well be too much of an ask I can see County scoring.
Leyton Orient smashed five past Notts in the reverse tie and the simple stat that the O’s have found the back of the net in every single away game this season should be more than enough reason to expect the East London outfit to score on Saturday. There is not much more to say when you have statistics like those but Orient also come into the tie on good form having won their previous three games and it looks like the run that run is unlikely to stop this weekend.
Swindon Town v MK Dons – 3.00pm Saturday
Both teams to score odds – 7/9 – 888sport
A crucial fixture between two sides situated just outside the Play Off places in League One as MK Dons take on Swindon with just the single point separating the pair. A victory may well be give one these teams the momentum they need to push on from now, until the end of the season to ensure they can grab an opportunity for promotion via the Play Offs. Peterborough who occupy 6th place seem happy to hand their position over to whoever can get there first and both these teams will want that chance.
Swindon are a different type of animal at home and have seen off a lot of the better sides at the County Ground. In their 16 games, they have won ten and drawn just three. An average of two a game have been scored and you just don’t bet against them when they have the advantage of playing in Wiltshire. The magnitude of taking on one of their rivals in the League will be enough motivation for the Robins to get a positive result.
MK Dons fell victims to an in form Sheffield United side in their last appearance as they went down to a 1-0 home defeat. Karl Robinson’s side will need to pick themselves up quickly as they make the difficult trip here to Swindon. The Dons have shown this season that they are able to score goals away from home against the bigger sides. They have already beaten Wolves at Molineux, drawn to Wigan 3-3 at the DW Stadium and may have lost to Brentford at the end of December they did find the net in a 3-1 loss. I am expecting a similar scoreline this weekend.
