The Easter schedule means we’ve got far fewer games than usual this Saturday, but there is still enough action to bash the bookies and we’re hoping to do just that with this BTTS treble.
We’re backing these six teams to all find the target. At odds of 4/1 with SkyBet, we think it’s well worth a punt.
Leicester City V West Ham United
Nigel Pearson’s Foxes are in desperate need of three points as they welcome Sam Allardyce’s West Ham to the King Power on Saturday and must surely look to punish the away team’s poor defence in order to grab a crucial win.
The Hammers have kept just one clean sheet in 20 Premier League away games and are also contending with a number of defensive problems right now. This should pave the way for Leicester to increase their inadequate tally of 13 home goals.
Unfortunately for the Foxes, though, West Ham have performed quite well on the road this term. The visitors boast 18 away goals, losing just five of 14 outings, and will be extremely confident against the Premier League’s bottom side – especially after registering a comfortable 2-0 victory in December’s reverse clash.
Leicester must get on the scoresheet and the likes of David Nugent and Andrej Kramaric will give them a good chance of doing that. Whether that’ll be enough to grab a positive result is another question altogether.

Leeds United V Blackburn Rovers
Goals are a common feature when Championship rivals Leeds and Blackburn meet at Elland Road and this year’s instalment should be no different on Saturday afternoon.
The past six head-to-head contests on this ground have ended in BTTS winners, which will inspire confidence in this selection. Meanwhile, the 2-1 November result at Ewood Park is another indicator that we could be in for an exciting clash.
Rovers have been a favourite for the BTTS coupon this season and their goal tally of 51 for and 50 against makes it clear to see why. With three of their past four away games bringing goals at both ends, there is no reason to think the action will dry up here.
Leeds aren’t quite as reliable on this market, but there has been goals at both ends in two of the past three at Elland Road. A five-game unbeaten run should spur the hosts on, but they should expect moments of danger from the deadly duo of Rudy Gestede and Jordan Rhodes. We’re backing both teams to score.
BTTS Yes @ 4/5 with SkyBet
Eastleigh V Dover Athletic
Our final selection comes from the Vanarama Conference and we’re anticipating another game of goals for Eastleigh, who enter this clash with Dover on the back of six straight BTTS winners.
Richard Hill’s men have in fact been amongst the goals all season, netting 76 whilst also shipping 56 from their 40 league matches. Meanwhile, the visitors boast 29 from 20 matches on the road, but have worryingly leaked 37.
The impetus has to be with Eastleigh, who could move into the play-offs with a win, but Dover are sitting 10th in the table and will provide stiff competition. Athletic will also take confidence from the 2-1 home win earlier this season, whilst Stefan Payne is always a nuisance for any opposing defence.
Nonetheless, Eastleigh will expect to avoid defeat even if visiting Dover do get themselves on the scoreboard.
