This weekend’s Football League matches are bound to serve up another feast of action and we’re looking to take advantage with this 9/2 BTTS treble.
After hitting a Champions League winner on Tuesday, we’re hoping these six teams can give us the perfect ending to an already profitable week.
Alternatively, add an extra two selections to create a five-fold and subsequently qualify for BetVictor’s ‘back of the net’ promotion.
Middlesbrough V Fulham
Championship new boys Fulham have struggled in the opening couple of month’s but the departure of Felix Magath has ushered in a new era and the Cottagers have improved. Whilst the trip to the Riverside signals a tough test, they can at least hope to score.
Back-to-back wins over Birmingham and Bolton have raised the spirits at Craven Cottage and the Lilywhites will be confident heading into this one, especially after netting four on Wednesday night. Middlesbrough’s rigid defence will form a stronger barrier, but the rejuvenated visitors can find a way through.
Nevertheless, Boro have started the season strongly and enter Saturday’s showdown on a five-game unbeaten streak. Aitor Karanka’s men are one of the division’s form sides and will look to take advantage of an away defence that has shipped goals for fun over the past 15 months.
Both sides enter the contest in good form and that should lead to a cracking affair.

Mansfield Town V Accrington Stanley
League Two can often be a hotbed of action and punters will be hopeful of goals at the One Call Stadium as Mansfield Town host Accrington Stanley.
The visitors have enjoyed vast improvements since replacing James Beattie with John Coleman and are now on a run of four wins from five heading into this weekend’s showdown. In fact, Stanley have now scored in eight of their last 10 outings, including five in their most recent away match as they edged a nine-goal thriller against Northampton.
Nevertheless, Accrington’s defence is still a little shaky to say the least and they are yet to keep a single shutout on the road this term. Meanwhile, the Stags have hit eight in just give League Two home matches so an away clean sheet looks unlikely.
However, you cannot overlook Accrington’s recent form and they should have a great chance of picking up some sort of result here. It’s a fairly difficult contest to predict the outcome of, but there should be plenty of action. Back both teams to score.

Gateshead V Braintree Town
Our final pick comes from the Conference as Gateshead face Braintree Town.
Gary Mills’ home side have drawn each of their past four league matches 1-1, which form part of a 10 game spell that has seen them involved in eight BTTS winners, and fans will be expecting the goals to keep flowing at the Gateshead International Stadium.
The hosts have hit 22 goals in just 13 league games overall and should increase that tally on Saturday. Unfortunately, though, they have also shipped 17 at the wrong end and that leaky defence is currently preventing them from challenging the very top. However, a win against Braintree could see them sneak into the play-off places and that will provide a huge incentive.
Braintree will pose a constant threat, though, and boast 19 goals themselves. Whilst the Essex club’s defensive record looks fairly OK, they have conceded eight in just six away games, so they will probably need to score to gain anything from this one. Hopefully that will force both sides into adopting a positive approach.
Goals at both ends have been a regular feature for each of these clubs in recent weeks and that should spill into Saturday’s encounter.
