As we return from the international break, teams up and down the country will be eager to pick up three points as they prepare for a hectic festive period. We’re looking to take advantage with this BTTS treble.
At odds of 5/1 we think it is well worth backing these six teams all to score and are hopeful of bashing the bookie once more.

Leicester City V Sunderland
Premier League newcomers Leicester City suffered a difficult run of results leading into the international break and Nigel Pearson’s men will be desperate for points as they take on an inconsistent Sunderland.
The Foxes have lost four straight matches without scoring a single goal, which has seen them drop into the relegation zone. However, Pearson’s men will fancy their chances against a Black Cats side that hasn’t kept a clean sheet in five.
Leicester will be hopeful that the likes of Leonardo Ulloa and David Nugent can fire them to success but you cannot overlook their defensive woes. The hosts haven’t kept a shutout in six Premier League fixtures and have already conceded nine from five matches at the King Power.
Neither team is the most prolific scorers but should be highly motivated for an encounter that will be seen as winnable by both managers. Let’s pray for an attack-minded contest that involves plenty of action.

Charlton Athletic V Millwall
A London derby in arguably the pick of this weekend’s Championship action as Charlton host Millwall in a crucial clash at the Valley. We’re hoping to see plenty of action between the Addicks and Lions.
Neither team is massively prolific and they both have relatively decent defences, but the goals scored and goals conceded tallies are tracking above the one per game ratio for each side. In addition to that promising statistic, two of Chalton’s last three matches have ended in BTTS winners whilst all of Millwall’s most recent three also saw goals at both ends.
Recent meetings have been tight affairs but there should be an emphasis on attack here as Charlton look to give their play-off bid a boost and Millwall aim to pull further away from the dreaded bottom three. There are some really decent forwards in both squads, with the home side’s Igor Vetokele looking particularly likely to score at every opportunity.
An early goal could spark this contest into life. Back both teams to score.

Crawley Town V Scunthorpe United
Our final selection comes from League One and we’re predicting a highly entertaining clash as struggling Scunthorpe make the trip to Crawley.
Mark Robins’ men aren’t doing too well since gaining promotion but they can be optimistic ahead of their trip to the Checkatrade.com Stadium not least because they’ve picked up more points on the road than at Glanford Park. The Iron have also notched a fairly impressive dozen goal from just eight away games, although that has largely been let down by a defence that has shipped 16.
However, the visitors have picked up seven points from nine on the road as four of their past five matches have ended in BTTS winners. Crawley, on the other hand, don’t score all too many at home but should take advantage of the poor Scunny defence. Unfortunately, John Gregory’s men also suffer from defensive issues and a first clean sheet in six.
Both teams will look to exploit the defensive vulnerabilities of their opponents and that should lead to a fascinating contest. Let’s pray for goals at either end.
