Nobody would turn down the opportunity to turn £10 into £721, would they?
Our Saturday BTTS & Win treble could be your golden ticket to another massive payout. All three teams picked will be immensely confident about securing the points. So let’s just hope the three losing teams can grab a consolation in the process.
Here are our selections.
Norwich City v Birmingham City
Gianfranco Zola has now endured the worst start of any Birmingham manager for a century, and it’s difficult to see where the Blues will grab a win. However, they are now starting to score goals, and will head to Carrow Road with hopes of securing those vital three points.
The visitors have scored in five of their last six competitive games and can look to punish a Norwich backline that’s conceded in each of its last four. Then again, with only 12 away goals to their name all season, it’s hard to see them netting more than once.
Unfortunately for the away side, Norwich do look capable of scoring several times. A return of 27 goals has fired Alex Neil’s men to nine wins in 13 at Carrow Road while no less than five players are up to five goals or more for the campaign.
In truth, that added quality in the attacking third should make all the difference. Let’s just hope the Brummies can grab a consolation.
Bristol Rovers v Swindon Town
Back-to-back defeats have seen Darrell Clarke’s Pirates fall away from the League One play-off zone, and they will need the full three points on Saturday if they are to reignite their hopes. A home clash versus struggling Swindon is the perfect opportunity, but they shouldn’t expect to have things all their own way against a local rival.
The hosts certainly have the potential to score goals through strikers Matt Taylor and Ellis Harrison. Given that Rovers have scored in six straight competitive games, and Swindon have shipped 28 in 14 away games, there should be chances for the home side.
Swindon will be up for this one, though, and the passion could make them dangerous in the attacking third. Moreover, despite only scoring 12 on the road, they have netted twice in each of their last two away games. Luke Williams knows his side are up against it, but there’s no reason for them not to fancy their chances of scoring.
Rovers won the reverse fixture via a 2-1 scoreline at the Memorial Stadium. Do not be overly surprised if we see a similar scoreline here.
Stevenage v Grimsby Town
Goals have been a common theme at the Lamex this season with Stevenage producing 24 and conceding 26 after just 13 matches. However, with twice as many defeats as victories under their belts, Darren Sarll’s men could be in for a difficult afternoon against strong opposition.
Stevenage’s recent record is another cause for concern as they’ve lost five of their last six matches. However, the goals of Matt Godden tend to give them a fighting chance, and is evidenced by the fact they’ve scored at least once in all but three home games this term.
Grimsby are the better team, though, while they additionally enter the contest in far better form having lost just one of their last six. Marcus Bignot’s men take confidence from the 5-2 reverse win earlier in the season while top scorer Omar Bogle should ensure that they carry an attacking threat throughout.
We’re backing an away win for the Mariners, but don’t rule out a Stevenage goal too. At 9/2, this selection is well worth its inlcusion.
