This Saturday signals Remembrance Day and, in addition to our heroes, you won’t want to forget putting on this huge 61/1 treble on the BTTS & Win coupon.
We’ve picked three games that we think will end in BTTS winners but also combined this with the match outcome. With the chance to turn £10 into over £620, it has to be worth a punt!
Oxford United v Northampton Town
League One side Oxford United might not be in the best of form, but a return of 17 goals in eight matches shows that they know how to find the target at the Kassam. Moreover, this weekend’s clash against struggling Northampton should give them the perfect opportunity to secure a return to winning ways.
Despite winning just once, Josep Ruiz’s men have scored three times in three of their last four competitive home matches. With the Cobblers sitting in the relegation zone, Wesley Thomas and co. should be licking their lips. They should be capable of scoring at least twice.
Nonetheless, it’s hard to overlook a five match winless streak, especially as the visitors are unbeaten in five themselves. Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has at least got the Cobblers scoring, and they should be ready to get on the scoresheet once more.
Still, while the recent form would suggest otherwise, we’re still backing home advantage to see Oxford to prevail.
Exeter City v Grimsby Town
Exeter City have struggled for form in recent weeks, dropping to fourth in the League Two standings thanks to a return of two points in their last four games. Last weekend’s cup win should have rebuilt a little confidence, however, and they’ll be desperate to seal a crucial win at St James’ Park against Grimsby.
The Grecians can be quietly confident too as they’ve won five of eight home games, scoring 11 times in the process. When coupled with the fact the visitors have conceded 13 in eight on their travels, there’s every chance that the hosts will grab a couple here.
Grimsby have scored 12 times on their travels, though, and should fancy themselves against a defence that has leaked nine on home soil. Like the hosts, however, the Mariners are in a poor run of form. With this in mind, Exeter’s extra quality should shine through.
Reuben Reid and co. have bailed out a poor defence on several occasions this term. A similar story could well develop on Saturday.
Torquay United v Maidstone United
Struggling Torquay have managed just one win in nine matches at Plainmoor this term and are currently looking at the very real prospect of relegation from the National League. Unfortunately, they could be in for another tough afternoon against high-flying Maidstone.
The Gulls have at least scored eight goals at home, which should inspire some confidence as they take on a side that has conceded nine in eight away games. Jon Paul Pitman, Jamie Reid and Ruairi Keating can certainly score. But we wouldn’t expect them to score many.
This could be a problem for the hosts, not least because the visitors have won their last four competitive matches. Jay Saunders can rely on Joe Pigott and Zavon Hines to grab the goals, which is why we expect them to leave Devon with their promotion hopes looking stronger than ever.
While we do expect the visitors to win, Torquay can still give their fans a goal to cheer. Hopefully, it will give us something to cheer too.
