After smashing the bookies left, right and centre in August we are looking to get back on track this Saturday with an 11/2 BTTS treble.
The international break has offered teams in the top two divisions a chance to recharge their batteries and we’re hoping that will ignite a flurry of goals this weekend.[toggle title=”Chelsea 4/1 to win the Premier League – No joke!…“]Get in quick if you think Chelsea have what it takes to secure the Premier League title this season. 888sport are giving odds of 4/1 for the Blues to top the table as well as £88 in free bets and a £5 no lose mobile bet.

Crystal Palace V Burnley
Following a truly bizarre start to the season, Crystal Palace will be hoping to restore some normality to Selhurst Park in the coming weeks. New manager Neil Warnock secured a draw on his return to the club at St James’ Park and will now be looking for another positive result in the first home match of his second term at the Eagles.
Despite the lack of clarity around the club, Palace have been pretty reliable on the pitch when it comes to goals with all three Premier League outings ending with goals at either end. In fact, a defence that had been so strong under Tony Pulis has now shipped eight times in that period and looks bereft of that solidarity that had served them so well throughout 2013/14.
On a brighter note, though, the Eagles do look better in attack. The Londoners boast five league goals already and the return of Wilfried Zaha from Manchester United is a massive boost to everyone at the club. They should fancy their chances of scoring against the newly promoted Clarets.
Sean Dyche’s Burnley have endured a difficult start to life in the Premier League, facing both Chelsea and Manchester United in their opening games at Turf Moor. However, they have shown themselves to be a spirited bunch and they’ll be looking to take advantage of Palace\s vulnerable situation on Saturday.
Unfortunately, though, there is a feeling that the Clarets will be let down by their away form and the 1-0 loss to Swansea is an early indication that they could struggle on the road.
Both teams will be desperate for three points in this one as they look to escape the relegation zone. This should lead to a very satisfying contest for the neutral.
BTTS Yes @ 6/5
Blackburn Rovers V Wigan Athletic
Goals have been a common feature in games at Ewood Park so far this season and we expect that theme to continue as Blackburn host Wigan Athletic.
All five Championship encounters involving Gary Bowyer’s men have ended in BTTS winners and there is nothing to suggest this won’t be the caes again on Saturday. Both of last year’s head-to-head meetings were packed with goals, including a 4-3 home win in May’s corresponding fixture.
With Jordan Rhodes back amongst the goals, along with the impressive form of Rudy Gestede, Rovers fans will be expecting goals from their side and that shouldn’t be a problem against a Latics defence that has shipped three times in two away matches so far.
However, Uwe Rosler’s men do enter the match on the back of posting gour against Birmingham City so the visitors will be well up for this contest as they look to complete a hat-trick of victories. It should be another entertaining fixture between these sides and we’d be surprised if there isn’t goals.
Back both teams to score.
BTTS Yes @ 4/5
Accrington Stanley V AFC Wimbledon
James Beattie’s Accrington finally claimed a first win of the season with last week’s late turnaround against Tranmere and that will give them a huge lift ahead of Saturday’s showdown with AFC Wimbledon.
Despite picking up just four points so far, Stanley do boast seven league goals including five in three matches at the Store First Stadium. Defence has been their main source of problem, though, meaning that their past four competitive matches have all ended with both teams on the scoresheet.
Wimbledon have been equally affluent in the goals department, with 22 goals being split evenly at the right and wrong ends. In striker Matt Tubbs, the Dons possess the league’s top scorer and the former Crawley star will hope to fire his side to a first win in four here.
Both meetings in 2013/14 saw goals with Accrington edging a five-goal thriller in their home fixture. If we see anything like a repeat of that encounter then we’ll be in for a treat.
