The English football season is really heating up and there should be fireworks across the top five divisions this weekend.
We’re looking to cash in with this BTTS treble, which pays out at odds of exactly 5/1 at Betfred .
Leicester City V Hull City
Tensions are rapidly rising in the Premier League relegation battle and Saturday’s clash between Leicester and Hull could be absolutely crucial to deciding the fate of both sides. We’re expecting both teams to go all guns blazing in search of the win.
Nigel Pearson’s home side simply must prevail. The Foxes are already seven points adrift of safety and are in desperate need of a third home win; the visit of Steve Bruce’s Tigers could be the perfect opportunity to do just that, especially as the away side has already shipped 20 times on the road.
Leicester will be looking to the likes of Andrek Kramaric, David Nugent and Leonardo Ulloa for inspiration but must be careful at the back. Hull might only sit five points above the bottom three, but they have picked up seven points from the last available 12. In particular, Nikica Jelavic could pose a constant danger to the Foxes defence.
Both sides will fight desperately for the points and we’re anticipating a positive approach from each manager. That, combined with their respective defensive woes, should lead to a thrilling encounter.

Cambridge United V Stevenage
Goals have been a regular occurrence at both ends of the pitch for League Two rivals Cambridge and Stevenage and we cannot see them drying up at the Abbey on Saturday.
The two sides boast a combined total of 100 league goals this season, whilst they’ve also conceded 92 from their cumulative 70 fixtures. Additionally, Stevenage edged a five-goal thriller in December’s reverse clash.
Moreover, both sides are in desperate need for points as the U’s look to cement their place in the division whilst the visitors are aiming to break into the play-off zone following a fantastic spell in which they’ve picked up 13 points from an available 15. However, they’ve not kept a clean sheet in four away games.
The impetus is with Stevenage but they shouldn’t expect things all their own way on the road. Back both teams to score.

Eastleigh V Barnet
Martin Allen’s Bees have lost some of their sting in recent weeks but remain genuine contenders for the Vanarama Conference title and will be out to make a statement of intent at the Silverlake Stadium. However, in-form Eastleigh hold promotion hopes of their own and it should be a cracking afternoon’s entertainment.
Nobody in the division has won more away games than Barnet, but their recent form is a cause for concern against Richard Hill’s play-off hopefuls, especially as the hosts have notched an impressive 37 goals in just 18 home games.
However, the home side have also shipped 21 from those 18 matches and that is an area that Barnet will look to exploit. The Bees boast the most goals in the division both at the Hive and on the road. With the visitors needing nothing less than a win, Eastleigh should expect a tough test.
Eastleigh’s best chance is to attack and we think they will receive some joy. Nevertheless, it’s hard to envisage Barnet firing a blank.
