This weekend’s BTTS & Win treble is a huge 55/1 shot in which a £10 stake could see us land a winner to the tune of over £564. Frankly, that has to be worth a punt.
We’re backing two home sides and one away team to win their respective matches, but without keeping a clean sheet. Let’s hope they can do the business to land us the perfect weekend winner.
Leicester City V Watford
A well fought draw at Chelsea, followed by a midweek FA Cup replay win over Fleetwood, should see Claude Puel’s Foxes enter this weekend’s action with high hopes of making it four wins in six Premier League home matches. We’re backing them to do just that as they welcome an out-of-form Watford to the King Power.
Leicester have looked a far better team in recent weeks, thanks largely to the revived form of Riyad Mahrez. With Jamie Vardy providing a threat in the attacking third too, the hosts shouldn’t have too many problems as they bid to increase their tally of 16 home goals, particularly as the visitors have conceded 17 on their travels.
Marco Silva’s men have scored 17 in that time too, but have now lost four on the spin away from Vicarage Road. While their home win over Leicester just last month can offer a source of optimism, there’s no doubt that the Hornets have seen their form tail off over the past few weeks.
While we do think Watford can score, a home win looks likely.

Peterborough United V Oldham United
A run of three games without a win has seen Peterborough slip out of the League One play-off zone but Grant McCann’s men will be eager to keep themselves in the hunt by getting back to winning ways on Saturday. In truth, a home game against lowly Oldham should provide the perfect opportunity.
Posh have scored 20 home goals while also conceding 18 from their 13 matches. While Jack Marriott has been heavily linked with a departure, the 23-year-old remains a huge source of goals for the hosts. Against a team that has leaked 28 in just 14 away games, Peterborough should be scoring a couple in this one.
The Latics have failed to win any of their last seven games and will probably face another defeat here. They have at least scored in five of those matches, though, and Richie Wellens will be optimistic about seeing his side extend that run. Unfortunately, it might not be enough to help them avoid defeat.
Oldham actually got a 3-2 victory at Boundary Park, and can take confidence from that win. Nonetheless, with home advantage on their side, Peterborough should run out as the winners.

Crewe Alexandra V Wycombe Wanderers
Away wins don’t come easily in League Two, but the Chairboys will head to Gresty Road with high hopes of securing another three points in their bid for promotion. However, they won’t expect to have things all their own way against a home side that will be eager to build a bigger gpa between themselves and the drop zone.
Gareth Ainsworth’s visitors have won more than they’ve lost on the road, and boast 19 goals in those 13 games. The fact they’ve won three of their last four games, including a 2-1 win at Forest Green, should provide confidence while the experienced strikeforce of Adebayo Akinfenwa and Craig Mackail-Smith will be fancied for goals here.
Crewe have actually picked up two wins in their last three home games and David Artell can look to Chris Dangall and co. with high hopes of scoring. Despite scoring 19 times in 14 home games, their defensive vulnerabilities have cost them on several occasions.
Wycombe picked up a 3-2 win in the reverse clash. A similar result here would suit us just fine.
