It’s already been a profitable week thanks to the midweek European action but we’re looking to boost our winnings even further with this BTTS treble.
We’re backing these six teams to all find the net with hopes of bagging another triumph that pays in excess of 7/2 at Ladbrokes.
West Ham United V Newcastle United
Sam Allardyce was given the task of producing more exciting performances from West Ham this season and he certainly hasn’t disappointed to date. We’re expecting the goals to keep coming at both ends as they entertain Newcastle at the Boleyn.
The Hammers have scored 20 and conceded 16 this season, with nine of their 12 opening fixtures ending in BTTS winners, so fans cannot grumble about the entertainment factor around Upton Park. The hosts will certainly fancy their chances of finding the target during this showdown but know the visitors will be equally buoyant.
Newcastle have done exceptionally well in recent weeks and enter this weekend’s schedule sitting fifth in the Premier League standings. Alan Pardew’s men are on an incredible run of five straight victories and the Magpies boss would love to mastermind a sixth against his former employers. Both teams have started the season well and that should hopefully lead to an end-to-end clash on Saturday.
Last season’s meeting ended 3-1 to the visitors. Another four goal game would suit us perfectly here.

Bolton Wanderers V Huddersfield Town
Our second selection comes from the Championship and we’re predicting an intense battle between two of the division’s bottom sides. Both Bolton and Huddersfield will view this as a winnable fixture and that should result in a game packed with chances.
The Trotters have seen vast improvements since appointing Neil Lennon as manager but are still conceding goals at a worryingly rapid rate, keeping just three shutouts all season. Five of Bolton’s last six games saw both teams find the target and we’d expect that to continue against a Terriers side that are equally entertaining to watch.
Like Lennon, new Town boss Chris Powell has given the side a boost but the honeymoon period has seemingly finished with a run of one point from the last available nine. However, a return of 13 goals in nine away matches is a promising statistic.
This probably doesn’t have the makings of a seven goal thriller, but there should be enough opportunities for each team to score.

Barnsley V Scunthorpe United
League One strugglers Scunthorpe are in desperate need of points as they head to Oakwell this weekend and Mark Robbins’ men will be out for goals against the leaky Tykes defence.
Despite their lowly position, goals haven’t been a major issue for the Iron. The visitors boast 21 goals from 17 League One matches, including 14 on the road. Unfortunately, though, they’ve been majorly let down by their defensive shortcomings – a summary that can largely be used to describe Danny Wilson’s side too.
Barnsley’s last four home league games have ended with a minimum of two goals for both sides. That in itself gives us huge confidence in this selection and the circumstances surrounding the fixtures also provide a massive source of optimism.
This could be an absolute cracker of a contest. Back both teams to score.
