Last Saturday was rather disappointing on the BTTS front, but it has been a pretty solid month and I’m looking to clinch another winning treble this Saturday.
Here I’m backing six teams to all find the target and we’ll be celebrating another 5/1 winner if they do the business.
Bury V Coventry City
League One rivals Bury and Coventry have both enjoyed fantastic starts to the 2015/16 campaign, with goals becoming a regular feature in the early weeks of the season. We have no reason to think the drama will stop as they collide at Gigg Lane.

Both sides have notched an impressive 15 goals from the opening eight games, which has propelled each of them into the play-offs at this stage. Meanwhile, Coventry are conceding at a rate of one goal per game while the hosts are leaking three in every two. Those stats alone should make for an exciting game.
David Flitcroft’s men will be in particular buoyant mood following a run of four straight wins in all competitions. Moreover, striker Leon Clarke will be determined to score against his former club. Meanwhile, Tony Mowbray will be looking to on-loan sensation Adam Armstrong to continue his fantastic start to the season.
Bury and Coventry have been two of the best attacking teams in the division so far. Let’s hope that shows again here.

Oxford United V Morecambe
Michael Appleton’s Oxford are unbeaten at the Kassam this season, having picked up eight point from a possible 12. However, the League Two side shouldn’t expect to have things all their own way against equally high-flying Morecambe.
The U’s are in great form at home, scoring seven goals in those four matches. But it is worth noting that they have conceded in three of those contests, with the only clean sheet coming against lowly Yeovil.
Meanwhile, Morecambe’s last five league matches have all ended in BTTS winners. The Shrimps have scored 15 and conceded 11 during that goal-fuelled sequence, which is another reason to believe Jim Bentley’s men will be involved in another dramatic contest.
Both teams will be confident given their impressive starts to the season. It should lead to a game of goals.

Lincoln City V Torquay United
After two away matches without a BTTS winner, Chris Moyses’ men returned to their old ways on Tuesday with a 1-1 home draw against Altrincham. We’re backing the Imps to be involved in another game of goals as Torquay become the latest side to visit Sincil Bank.
The hosts have played six home matches this season, with all of them ending in BTTS winners. Four of those have ended in the minimum 1-1 draw, but a repeat would suit us just fine against the Gulls. Judging by Torquay’s record, there is absolutely no reason to think those goals will dry up.
Torquay’s six away games have all ended in BTTS winners, scoring 11 and conceding 13 in the process. Despite the current overhaul, which has left the visitors managerless, they should fancy their chances of goals. Nonetheless, it’s hard to see them keeping a clean sheet.
Lincoln were very nearly added to the BTTS & Win selections. But we’re going for the safe option and backing both teams to score.
