The closure of this season’s January transfer window ushers in the business end of the campaign and clubs across the Football League will be eager to pick up points from this Saturday’s crucial fixtures.
We’re hoping to capitalise on those heightened feelings with this BTTS treble, which pays out at just under 9/2, and are hopeful of securing the perfect start to February.

Fulham V Birmingham City
Both Fulham and Birmingham have endured roller-coaster seasons in 2014/15, but both will be quietly pleased with where they are right now and hopeful of bagging another crucial victory at Craven Cottage.
The visitors enter this match on the back of consecutive 0-0 results, but goals have been a much more common feature of the Blues’ game since Gary Rowett’s arrival and that should continue against Fulham – who are one of the most exciting Championship clubs for the neutral.
Fulham’s unpredictability only extends to their results, though, and goals have been a regular occurrence at both ends throughout the season. The Cottagers boast 41 goals but have shipped 49, which tells you everything you need to know about Kit Symons men.
Each of Fulham’s last three matches have ended in BTTS winners, as did September’s reverse meeting at St Andrew’s. There should be plenty of scoring opportunities here.

MK Dons V Bristol City
This weekend’s mouth-watering clash at the Stadium:MK is one of the most exciting in the entire League One campaign and we’re optimistic that the Dons and Robins will live up to expectations here.
The top two sides in League One have netted an incredible 109 goals between them this season.MK Dons boast 36 from their 14 home games, whilst the Robins have posted a return of 25 from their 13 away games. Simply put: this should be a frantic affair full of goals.
Victory would put the winner in pole position for automatic promotion so the prize could scarcely be better. That extra incentive should serve as another reason to back goals from two attack-minded teams.
Each of the past three head-to-head clashes have seen both teams score at least twice. There is no reason to think the goals will dry up in this top-of-the-table showdown.
BTTS Yes @ 8/11 with BetVictor
Bury V Exeter City
Goals have been a common theme for both Bury and Exeter City this term and that should lead to a fascinating contest as the League Two rivals collide at Gigg Lane this weekend.
Just three points separate the teams ahead of kick-off and both will be eager to finish the campaign in the play-off zone. Currently, Bury are clinging on to that final spot but Exeter could well pip them to the post and three points in this match could be critical for the victor.
Exeter claimed a 2-1 triumph at St James’ Park earlier this season, which will inspire confidence as they bid to increase their tally of 20 away goals. However, the visitors have also shipped 22 from 14 matches on the road so David Flitcroft’s home side will be equally confident heading into this.
In fact, Bury boast 24 from 14 home matches, although they have conceded 14 themselves. Both teams tend to score but rarely keep out their opponents, which should be a recipe for goals.
