It’s the second Saturday of 2015 and we’re looking to pick up from where we left off by scoring another BTTS treble.
Last weekend saw us land a 9/2 treble and we’re hoping these six teams will keep the profit going by firing us to a 4/1 winner here.

Burnley V QPR
Two of last season’s promoted Championship sides meet in a crucial Premier League relegation six-pointer this weekend and we’re expecting a nervy but attack-minded collision at Turf Moor.
Harry Redknapp’s Hoops claimed a vital 2-0 triumph in last month’s reverse clash at Loftus Road, but the visitors are yet to claim a single point on the road and are in a very vulnerable position once more. Burnley must look to capitalise on this frailty and we’d imagine that Sean Dyche will instruct his men to go for blood from the outset.
However, you have to feel that QPR’s 100% record has to end at some point and this could be the best chance for them to secure a first point or three on their travels. The R’s have at least started finding the net away from Loftus Road; nevertheless, a tally of 22 conceded in just nine away games is a huge cause for concern.
Both teams were involved in BTTS winners on New Year’s Day. Expect that trend to continue.

Carlisle United V Cambridge United
Keith Curle’s men are in desperate need of three points this weekend as they welcome Cambridge United to Brunton Park and the relegation threatened club will be out for goals at home. However, that may lead to openings for the visitors and could be a recipe for goals at both ends on Saturday.
The Cumbrians were two divisions above the U’s last season, but it is the visitors who are enjoying the much better campaign this term and Richard Money’s men could yet make a late push for the play-offs. However, Cambridge will need to improve their defensive away record if they are going to resurrect hopes of back-to-back promotions.
So far, the U’s have shipped 18 on the road and that will give confidence to the hosts. Curle’s team aren’t the most prolific scorers by any means, but they do boast 19 from 12 home games so can be confident in notching against this leaky defence.
However, Carlisle have also let in 21 home games this season and Cambridge will be eager to increase their tally of 16 on the road against one of the division’s worst performing sides. Back both teams to score.

Eastleigh V Lincoln City
Just one game takes place in the Conference, thanks to a packed schedule in the FA Trophy, but we’re expecting it to be a gripping contest as two of the division’s most exciting teams collide at the Silverlake Stadium.
These rivals boast 49 goals apiece heading into Saturday’s showdown and both will be eager to bring up the half century. However, they’ve also conceded a combined total of 82 goals from 56 matches so we wouldn’t be confident on backing either to keep a clean sheet.
Just two points separate these teams before kick-off so it shouldn’t be a pretty even affair, which will inevitably result in ample chances at either end of the pitch. Meanwhile, nine of the last 10 Conference fixtures involving either of these sides has ended in a BTTS winner.
Eastleigh claimed a 2-1 victory when the sides met in a November FA Cup clash. Expect a similar story to develop here.
