Following a mind-blowing weekend of FA Cup action, our attentions turn back to league action on Tuesday night with a number of matches across the Football League.
We’re hoping to capitalise with this BTTS treble and are backing these six teams all to score with hopes of netting just under £50 profit from a £10 bet at Ladbrokes.
Derby County V Blackburn Rovers
Championship side Blackburn are on a real high following their weekend triumph over Premier League outfit Swansea and Gary Bowyer’s men will hope to take that momentum into this midweek trip to the iPro Stadium.
However, Steve McClaren’s home side are in great form themselves and will be eager to get their bid for automatic promotion back on track with another strong home performance. The Rams have scored 28 times in front of their own supporters this term and will be fancied to increase that tally here.
However, Blackburn are one of the most consistent BTTS winners in the Championship and will be quietly confident of adding to their 16 goals in 13 away games. With Jordan Rhodes and Rudy Gestede both enjoying decent spells in front of goal, there is no reason that Rovers can’t push Derby all the way.
Derby edged a stunning five-goal thriller at Ewood Park earlier this season and we can foresee plenty more action in this reverse fixture.

Millwall V Reading
At the other end of the Championship table, struggling Millwall will be desperate to pick up a vital three points against Reading at the Den. The Lions currently reside in the relegation zone but could move on to level points with Rotherham should they beat the Royals.
Reading, though, have enjoyed a slight upturn in fortunes under new boss Steve Clarke and will be hoping to see Simon Cox and Nick Blackman get amongst the goals in London. A win would open up a 10 point gap over the bottom three and that chance to earn real breathing space will serve as a huge incentive.
Unfortunately, the Royals don’t boast a particularly strong defence and may have to rely on their attacking players to secure a result. Only three teams have conceded more goals on the road in the Championship this term, which will inevitably give Ian Holloway’s side a boost.
A point wouldn’t be a great result for either side and that incentive for victory should lead to an attack-minded contest. Back both teams to score.
BTTS Yes @ 9/10 with Ladbrokes
Scunthorpe United V MK Dons
League One high-flyers MK Dons are in great scoring form this season, notching an incredible 53 goals from 25 league outings. Karl Robinson’s men may require all that attacking quality to get the win at Glanford Park.
A 2-0 loss to Bristol City just over a week ago put an end to Scunthorpe’s run of seven straight league BTTS winners and the Iron will be eager to get back amongst the goals on Tuesday night. If Mark Robbins’ men can create the chances for Paddy Madden then there is no reason that the 10-goal striker won’t put them away.
Nevertheless, they face a potent Dons side who remain a particularly dangerous outfit despite the loss of Benik Afobe. The visitors have scored in each of their past four away league games and we can’t see that run ending against a particularly leaky Scunthorpe defence.
The last five head-to-head meetings have seen at least one side keep a clean sheet but these sides can buck the trend here in an entertaining affair.
