Goals, goals, goals. We love ‘em as fans and adore them as punters, especially when we’ve backed over 2.5 match goals in a game!
With the season fast approaching the business end, there’s bound to be plenty of drama this Saturday. We’re looking to capitalise by backing at least three goals in each of the following fixtures. At odds of just over 4/1, it has to be worth a punt.
Manchester City v Aston Villa
Nobody has scored more Premier League home goals than Manuel Pellegrini’s team this season and, in truth, the likes of Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling must be licking their lips as they welcome the sorry Villans to the Etihad.
Remi Garde has failed massively since taking the Villa Park job during the early parts of the season. At times, it’s looked like he’d struggle to direct a turd down the toilet, which is a shame because ‘turd’ is a pretty decent summary of Aston Villa right now.
Tuesday’s 3-1 loss to Everton was the latest in a long line of humiliating results. Meanwhile, the visitors have leaked 28 goals in 14 away games this matches. If the hosts hit top form, they’d probably settle for conceding three.
We’re backing the match goals because there’s always a slim chance that Gabby Agbonlahor might score a fluke. Even if Villa do fire a blank, we’d expect the home side to cover this line, especially after their lacklustre midweek show at Anfield.

Wimbledon v Accrington Stanley
Goals have been a common feature at Kingston Road this season and the Dons will be eager to fire themselves back into the play-off zone with a crucial three points on Saturday. However, Neal Ardley’s men shouldn’t expect to have things all their own way as they take on Accrington.
The Dons certainly have enough attacking quality to cause problems for the visitors. No less than five strikers have hit the five goal milestone this term whilst leading striker Lyle Taylor boasts 14 on his own.
John Coleman’s Stanley have been one of the division’s form sides, though, and will be looking to 14-goal man Billy Kee for more inspiration here. With games in hand still to come, a win could push them into contention for automatic promotion, and that motivation should make them a dangerous proposition.
Wimbledon edged a seven-goal thriller when the sides met back in October. A similar story on Saturday would suit us just fine.

Woking v Dover Athletic
Form has eluded Garry Hill’s Cardinals in recent weeks, but goals have continued to flow at both ends of the pitch. There’s no reason to think that trend will end as they take on an inconsistent Dover at the Kingfield Stadium.
Woking have scored a total of 57 goals this term, conceding 48 in the process. Meanwhile, Dover have scored 56 and shipped 44. In fact, Chris Kinnear’s men are on a run of 10 straight competitive matches where a minimum of three goals have been scored.
Six of Woking’s last eight league matches have had at least three goals scored too, with most of them ending in BTTS winners. The hosts did lost 2-0 in the reverse clash, but home soil should give John Goddard and co every reason to fancy their chances.
We’d always fancy goals in any Conference fixture, and this one is no different. Back a minimum of three to be scored here.
