It’s already been a profitable week here at GGT on the BTTS coupon with BTTS treble wins on both Tuesday and Thursday, and we’re looking to take the profit one step further on Saturday with this simple treble.
We’ve picked three games, one from each of League One, League Two and the Conference, where we think both teams will find the target. At odds of just under 4/1, it’s got to be worth a weekend punt.
Southend United V Wigan Athletic
Phil Brown’s Southend United claimed an incredible 5-2 win at Oldham on Tuesday night, and the Shrimpers will be looking for plenty more joy in the attacking third this weekend. However, they shouldn’t expect to have things all their own way against the Latics.
Tuesday’s result was a rare one for the hosts, who tend to be involved in slightly less dramatic fixtures. Nonetheless, they have still scored 10 in nine games at Roots Hall, but it is worth noting they’ve also leaked nine. They currently sit just outside the play-offs, and would love to end the month of November sitting in the top six.
Wigan will be eager to bounce back following their midweek loss to Burton, and Gary Caldwell will be looking to the likes of Will Grigg and Michael Jacobs for inspiration. The visitors have hit 15 goals in nine matches on the road, but they have also leaked 14.
To be honest, we can’t see this being anything like Southend’s 5-2 midweek thriller. But there should be chances at both ends, and we’re predicting goals.
BTTS Yes @ 5/6
Exeter City V Bristol Rovers
In League Two, Darrell Clarke’s Bristol Rovers have been involved in four BTTS winners out of five. And the goals should keep flowing as they make the trip to St James’ Park on Saturday.
Away from home, the Pirates boast one of the division’s best record with six wins from nine. They’ve also netted 15 goals in that period, with Matt Taylor and Jermaine Easter looking particularly deadly. However, it is worth noting that the visitors have leaked 10 on the road too.
Ironically, Exeter’s home record also reads 15 for and 10 against after nine matches. Paul Tisdale’s men will be in high spirits following a run of three wins and a draw in all competitions too. The home crowd will expect goals, and they’ve every chance of getting them.
Nevertheless, Rovers have every chance of scoring too. Back both teams to score.
BTTS Yes @ 4/6
Guiseley V Bromley
Newly promoted Bromley were brilliant in the opening weeks of the 2015/16 season, but a run of three straight defeats has seen Mark Goldburg’s side slide down the Conference table so they’ll be eager to get their campaign back on track with three points against an equally out-of-form Guiseley.
Despite losing three on the bounce, the visitors did find the target in two of those matches. Six of their last nine competitive matches have ended in BTTS winners and the goals of Moses Ademola and co will always give them a reason to be confident, especially against a home side that has shipped 22 in just 13 matches at Nethermoor Park.
The hosts have scored 16 home goals too, however, and should fancy their chances against an away defence that has already conceded 23 on the road. Unfortunately for the home side, they might need more than one goal to claim the spoils here.
Conference football is often a hotbed of action, and the drama should be fierce between these two rivals. Let’s hope that leads to a game of goals.
BTTS Yes @ 8/13
