Our attentions return to league football this weekend and we’re hoping to see plenty of goals, especially after last week’s dramatic FA Cup action.
We’re hoping to capitalise with this 9/2 BTTS treble at BetVictor, by backing these six teams to all find the target at some stage.
Alternatively, add an extra two selections and qualify for BetVictor’s BTTS acca insurance.
Crystal Palace V Everton
Alan Pardew’s arrival to Selhurst Park has brought a dramatic increase to the frequency of goals at both ends of the pitch for Crystal Palace and this weekend’s home encounter with struggling Everton boasts all the ingredients for another end-to-end spectacle.
The Eagles have scored five and conceded three from two league matches under Pardew and additionally registered a thrilling 3-2 win at Southampton in last week’s FA Cup schedule. Palace’s attacking threat has also been boosted by the loan capture of Yaya Sanogo.
Meanwhile, Everton are stuttering this season and victory at Selhurst Park could be a vital win in their campaign. Roberto Martinez’s side boast a number of talented attacking threats but have largely been let down by a leaky defence this term, which works out perfectly for this bet selection.
September’s reverse fixture at Goodison Park saw Palace edge a five-goal thriller; the home fans would surely love a repeat here.

Blackburn Rovers V Fulham
Championship club Blackburn Rovers have been a real favourite for punters on the BTTS coupon this season and fans are anticipating another exciting contest as they take on an equally entertaining Fulham at Ewood Park.
Between them, these rivals have hit 76 goals from 54 league games, conceding a combined total of 84 in the process. Rovers have fired a few blanks in recent weeks, but the deadly duo of Rudy Gestede and Jordan Rhodes will always fancy their chances – especially against an away side that has shipped goals at a faster rate than any other Championship side on the road.
However, the Cottagers have improved and will be hopeful of increasing their tally of 17 away goals. With summer signing Ross McCormack finally getting amongst the goals, there is no reason that the visitors can’t at least find the target.
Both teams have reason to believe they can get three points from this game and that should lead to an attack-minded contest. Back both teams to score.
BTTS Yes @ 4/6 with BetVictor
Welling United v Chester
The Vanarama Conference has been extremely exciting for the neutrals this season, providing plenty of goals across the division and this clash at Park View has the potential to be another fascinating encounter.
Jody Brown’s side enter the match on the back of three consecutive defeats, but the Reds have at least scored three times during that period and will be hopeful of finding the target once more against a vulnerable Chester backline. The visitors are conceding at an alarming rate of 2 goals per game on the road and will do well to register a rare clean sheet here.
However, Steve Burr’s men are in pretty decent form and enter the match having picked up seven points from the last available nine. They’ve also netted 21 times from those 16 away outings and have no reason to fear a home side that has leaked a total of 47 league goals this term.
Attack is the best form of defence for both sides and we’d expect that to show with the scoreline.
