It’s another huge weekend of English football and we’re looking to bash the bookies once more with this tasty 6/1 goals galore treble at SkyBet.
We’ve had a couple of winners and a couple of very unlucky losers this month, hopefully these six teams will end a rollercoaster February in fitting fashion.
Burnley V Swansea City
It’s a crucial weekend at both ends of the Premier League table and perhaps no team needs a win more than Sean Dyche’s Burnley. However, the Clarets can expect a difficult encounter against a Swansea side who will naturally be in great spirit following last week’s win over Manchester United.
Burnley remain in the relegation zone heading into this weekend’s fixture but three points over the Swans would see them leapfrog QPR, who aren’t in action, and could provide a huge momentum boost as we approach the closing stages. Whilst the visitors may be sitting proudly in the top-half, Swansea’s away form isn’t good and the likes of Danny Ings will be eager to capitalise.
The Swans have won just three times on the road but have at least scored 11 away goals this term. Their superior squad should pose a danger and will be expected to find the target at Turf Moor. However, 19 goals conceded will be a cause for concern and it would be a real surprise if Monk’s men keep a shutout here.
With Burnley drawing at Stamford Bridge and Swansea beating Manchester United, both teams will be confident after last week’s respective performances. That should lead to a game of goals here.

Walsall V Leyton Orient
After seemingly losing all hope just a couple of weeks ago, struggling Leyton Orient have won two of three matches to keep their dreams of survival alive but the O’s must keep this run going as they head to the Bescot Stadium this weekend.
Despite picking up six points from nine, Fabio Liverani’s men remain trapped in the bottom four but could potentially escape with another win over Walsall. The O’s will also take confidence from a return of 22 goals in 15 away games but a defensive record of 23 conceded means they’re chances of a clean sheet are slim to say the least, particularly as Walsall are fairly dependable at home.
Walsall have been in poor form recently, which will give the visitors extra hope, but Dean Smith’s men will view this clash as the perfect opportunity to get back to winning ways. Their mid-table destiny could prove to be slight stumbling block mentally, but it would be a major surprise if they don’t at least find the target.
The two teams shared a 0-0 stalemate at Brisbane Road but the circumstances surrounding this one means we’re expecting a far greater attacking presence in this one. Back both teams to score.

Portsmouth V Oxford United
Andy Awford’s Porstmouth have enjoyed an incredible upturn in fortunes over the past couple of weeks and are now seemingly scoring goals at will. However, their defensive issues remain and that could throw a spanner into the works as they aim for a fourth straight league win on Saturday.
The League Two side have scored nine goals in their past two games alone, but will still be concerned at conceding twice on each of those occasions. Meanwhile, Oxford will be in good spirits after notching three past Mansfield last Saturday and should have no fears as they head to Fratton Park.
Whilst Adam Murray will be hopeful of seeing Danny Hylton add to his personal tally of 15, the U’s won’t be feeling too easy at the back against a currently rampant Pompey. The visitors have already shipped 21 on the road, and new boy Matt Tubbs will be just one home star itching to continue his recent scoring form.
Neither team is likely to leave the division this season and that lack of pressure could lead to an increased sense of freedom. Let’s hope that manifests in an expansive contest packed with goals.
