The Football League season is drawing ever closer to its climax and it’s shaping up to be a truly fascinating end in all three divisions.
Teams up and down the country will be desperate to enter the finishing straight on a high by picking up big results on Tuesday night and we’re looking to capitalise on that feeling with this 11/2 BTTS treble at BetVictor.

Leeds United V Norwich City
This season’s Championship title race is turning out to be one of the most exhilarating in living memory and Alex Neil’s Canaries look like they’ll be singing all the way to the Premier League if they carry on their recent good form. However, Norwich shouldn’t expect everything their own way against Leeds United at Elland Road.
Neil Redfearn’s men have hit another poor run, losing three on the spin, but the Yorkshiremen continue to find the target on a regular basis. The Whites have fired just one blank in their past five outings and should be confident against a Canaries side that has conceded 23 on the road.
In fact, Norwich have kept just one clean sheet in their past five away games. Nonetheless, that hasn’t prevented the visitors from stringing together a nine-game unbeaten record on the road and Neil’s talented stars like Gary Hooper, Cameron Jerome, Nathan Redmond and co should fancy their chances of another huge win.
Norwich hold a huge incentive to bag the three points but Leeds also know they must put on a show for their disappointed supporters.

Fleetwood Town V MK Dons
Our second selection comes from League One as Graham Alexander’s Fleetwood bid to resurrect their late bid for the play-offs with what would be a crucial win against the MK Dons.
Unfortunately for the Cod Army, Karl Robinson’s visitors are in great form and are unlikely to go down without a fight as they look to keep their slim hopes of automatic promotion alive. The Dons are five points adrift of second-placed Preston but a six-game unbeaten streak will inspire confidence and they won’t want it to end here.
Saturday’s away loss to Walsall could be extremely damaging for Fleetwood but it is worth noting the hosts have lost just one of their last eight at Highbury. Moreover, their record of 26 home goals is positive, as is the fact Dons have shipped 23. Likewise, though, the visitors will be confident about adding to their 35 away goals.
The Dons claimed a 2-1 win at the Stadium:MK back in October, a similar score wouldn’t surprise us at all.

Cheltenham Town V Cambridge United
A truly disastrous run of five straight defeats has seen Gary Johnson’s Cheltenham hit rock-bottom in the Football League and relegation is seriously on the cards if they can’t end their bad patch at home to Cambridge.
In fairness to Johnson, he has only overseen three of those matches since taking charge, but it’s still an alarming run of results at this stage of the campaign. Equally horrific is the return of 19 goals in 21 home games, although we’re backing the Robins to score a first in three at Whaddon Road against a poorly travelled U’s.
Richard Money’s men have leaked 28 on the road this term, although 26 at the right end is a far more pleasing statistic. Four points from the last two has virtually secured their League Two safety too, which could provide the freedom to make goals more likely at both ends of the pitch.
The pressure is solely on Cheltenham but we think they can end their misery with a positive result. Nonetheless, it’s hard to see the visitors failing to score.
