Tuesday’s football schedule serves up a selection of mouth-watering fixtures across the Champions League and Football League pyramid. We’re turning our attentions to the latter for our midweek both teams to score special.
At odds of just over 3/1 with Betfred, it might not be the best priced selection we’ve ever made. But a winner is a winner and we’re confident that these six teams can get our week up and running in style.
Queens Park Rangers V Sheffield Wednesday
Chris Ramsey’s QPR have endured a difficult start to life back in the Championship, but their problems haven’t emanated from scoring. Instead, it’s a leaky defence that has cost them dearly so far. These two features should help produce another interesting contest as they welcome Sheffield Wednesday to Loftus Road.

The Hoops have scored 13 goals in just five home games this season. Meanwhile, start striker Charlie Austin is second in the Championship’s individual scoring charts and his firepower should give them a great chance of finding the target here. However, the hosts will be concerned by the fact they’ve shipped 11 on home soil already.
Conversely, Carlos Carvalhal’s Owls are in great form having picked up 11 points from their past five matches. Those four most recent matches have ended in BTTS winners while the fact they’re scoring goals from a wide range of sources could be vital.
Neither team look particularly great at the back, but both have reasons to believe they will score. That’s exactly what we’re backing them to do.
BTTS Yes @ 4/6 with Betfred
Peterborough United V Wigan Athletic
In League One, opponents Peterborough and Wigan will both enter Tuesday’s clash in high spirits following their respective positive runs in recent weeks. And we’re optimistic that this will lead itself to an extremely dramatic affair at London Road.
For Posh, Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Port Vale signalled a fourth consecutive BTTS winner in the league. Meanwhile, all six league matches at London Road have seen goals at both ends, and Graham Westley’s side is quickly establishing itself as a firm favourite on this coupon.
Wigan, on the other hand, will be equally confident following Saturday’s 5-0 demolition of Colchester United. While they have kept a few clean sheets at the DW Stadium, they’ve yet to keep a single shutout on the road. Moreover, their most recent five away games have ended in BTTS winners, which gives us plenty of reason to back this selection.
Odds of 4/7 might not be the best, but the stats suggest this should be a guaranteed winner.
BTTS Yes @ 4/7 with Betfred
Northampton Town V Carlisle United
A Carlisle United clean sheet was the only thing stopping us from ca winning treble on Saturday, but we’re hopeful that Keith Curle’s defence will find things more difficult as they make the trip to Sixfields. After all, the Cobblers have only failed to score in one of their eight competitive home games this term.
Furthermore, Chris Wilder’s men are unbeaten in three matches on home turf while the goals of Marc Richards should give them a fantastic chance against an away defence that has conceded 10 times in just six games on the road.
Carlisle have also scored 10 goal on their travels, though, and have plenty of talent in the attacking third. They’ve found the target in all of their away games this season whilst keeping just one clean too.
The two teams are quite evenly matched on paper. A score draw wouldn’t surprise us one bit.
