I’m really getting a taste for this BTTS thing again now! Who wouldn’t with 2 wins in your last two both teams to score tips articles! I nailed my balls to the wall last weekend when stating that my treble was the most confident of the season so far, but luckily enough it paid off and left the eggs firmly in the fridge rather than all over my face!
There’s not a great deal happening this Wednesday, although I think BTTS is a pretty good price in the Man United v Sunderland 2nd leg. If I fancy it later on in the day I’ll give folllowers a little tweet about it. If you’re not already following us on Twitter it might be worth your while, as I’m posting quite a few inplay selections these days too.
Anyway, I’m going to look ahead to next Tuesday and Wednesday’s games, as it’s FA Cup weekend Saturday and Sunday. Here are the latest trendy teams for BTTS.
Next league game: v Leyton Orient (away) Tuesday 28th Jan
The Sky Blues are definitely a team to keep on your side at present when it comes to both teams to score. They face a massive FA Cup game against Arsenal at the Emirates on Friday, but we’ll cast that game aside for now.
Coventry have amassed a huge tally of 11 consecutive games in all competitions in which they’ve scored and conceded; their latest being a last gasp equaliser to make it 1-1 at Preston the weekend just gone. Next Tuesday they clash with top of the table Leyton Orient, a team that know how to defend well on their day. But can they keep Coventry out? I doubt it.
The Sky Blues beat Orient 3-1 in the reverse fixture played back in late October and there’s absolutely no reason not to believe both teams will rack up the goals in this encounter.
Next league game: v Airdrie (away) Saturday 25th Jan
Stranraer simply don’t know how to keep a clean sheet on their travels. Luckily enough for them they aren’t bad at scoring themselves. The Scottish League 1 side have played 10 games on the road this season; scoring and conceding in all but 1 of them (which happened to be their first away game of the season all the way back in August). That’s a whopping 90% away BTTS success rate.
Airdrie themselves are in all sorts of trouble. Rooted to the bottom of the table with a mere 15 points, things can only get better, but it actually looks like they are. A respectable 0-1 loss to a formidable Rangers team at this level was followed by a 1-0 win at 2nd placed Dunfermline last weekend, and that’s certain to breed confidence in the camp.
Next league game: v Cambuur (away) Sunday 26th Jan
There’s no way I can leave these guys out just yet. After their winter break they carried on regardless with their scoring and conceding antics when drawing 2-2 with Roda last weekend to bring my treble home, and there’s no reason to leave them out of your coupons this weekend.
As well as having a 100% home BTTS record, Heerenveen are a not too shabby 77% away from home, and there should be goals in the pipeline when they face newly promoted Cambuur at their place on Sunday.
After a dismal spell leading up to the winter break which saw them collect just 1 point in December, Cambuur bounced back with a 2-0 win over Go Ahead Eagles last weekend, and with a leaky defence like Heerenveen’s, you’d be mad to think they won’t bag at least 1 goal.
