It’s Valentine’s weekend, but our first love is football and we’ve got another tempting BTTS treble on Saturday.
After landing a decent 4/1 winner on Tuesday night, we’re aiming to earn more profit with this 7/2 selection from matches across the Football League and Vanarama Conference.
Bolton Wanderers V Watford
Championship duo Bolton and Watford served us well on Tuesday night, helping us to that lovely midweek triumph, and we’re sticking with these rivals as they meet at the Macron.
Neil Lennon’s men claimed an impressive 3-1 home win over Fulham on Tuesday to make it five straight BTTS winners involving the Trotters and we cannot see the goals drying up any time soon. The new manager has worked wonders in his first few weeks at the club but those defensive errors are yet to be eradicated completely and the Hornets will be ready to sting this weekend.
Watford have had a topsy-turvy season themselves, especially on the managerial front, but they will have been thrilled to have leapfrogged Brentford into fifth with their midweek win at Griffin Park and will hope to use the momentum gained from that 2-1 victory here. However, despite scoring 23 on the road, the visitors should be concerned at shipping 18 on the road.
Both teams are loving goals right now and that should manifest itself in an exciting contest here. It’s hard to predict the outcome, but we certainly think they’ll be goals.
BTTS Yes @ 8/13
Peterborough United V Rochdale
Nobody has scored more away goals in League One than Rochdale this season and Keith Hill will be ecstatic at his side’s return of 32 on the road. However, the Dale have also shipped 21 at the wrong end from those 14 matches and we’d expect more at both ends as they head to London Road.
In addition to that impressive away record, Rochdale’s recent form makes for promising reading. Their past five competitive matches have ended in BTTS winners, as have four of Peterborough’s last five, with a total of 22 goals being scored in that period.
Both teams possess decent goalscorers at this level but neither side is blessed with a particularly confident defence, which should be the perfect recipe for goals. Meanwhile, with both teams sitting just four points below the play-offs, victory could reignite a promotion charge.
This is a crucial contest for both sides involved and attack will be the best form of defence for each manager. Back another BTTS winner.
BTTS Yes @ 8/11
Lincoln City V Chester
The Vanarama Conference is a fantastic source for exciting matches and we’re expecting another at Sincil Bank as Lincoln host Chester.
Goals have been a regular feature for both these clubs in 2014/15 and they boast a combined total of 98 goals from 66 matches. Likewise, they’ve shipped a cumulative tally of 109. Both are great in attack but poor in defence, which should be a recipe for goals on Saturday.
Steve Burr’s visitors claimed a 4-0 win in last month’s reverse clash but the Imps should pose a much greater threat on home soil, especially as Chester have conceded 33 times in just 17 away games. However, the away side will be confident after three consecutive wins and will fancy their chances of another at Sincil Bank.
Both sides will be eager to keep their slim play-off hopes alive with a win and that should result in an attack-minded affair. We’re anticipating goals at either end.
