It promises to be another mouth-watering weekend of action across the English football pyramid, and we’ve got a cracking bet to hopefully turn a great Saturday into the perfect one.
The BTTS & Win coupon is a firm favourite for any punter wanting a big win, and we’ve picked three selections to put together a huge weekend treble that pays over £500 profit from the sake of a £10 bet.
Now that has to be worth a punt.
Hull City v Arsenal
Mike Phelan has enjoyed an exceptional start to the season under very testing circumstances, and his Hull City would love to keep it going with a positive result against Arsenal on Saturday. Unfortunately, they may just come up a little short.
The Tigers have done brilliantly to pick up seven points from their opening four fixtures, and will be eager to take advantage of any Arsenal tiredness following the away side’s midweek clash in Paris. In Abel Hernandez and Adama Diomande, they certainly have enough quality to cause a few problems for the Gunners, and will have every chance of finding the scoresheet four a fourth time in five Premier League matches.
Arsene Wenger’s men are likely to dominate possession, though, and that could be telling at the KCOM Stadium. With Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Santi Cazorla pulling the strings, Hull will need to be at their very best to walk away with anything other than a loss.
The Gunners have won each of their last two Premier League matches via BTTS winners. We’re predicting that they’ll complete the hat-trick on Saturday.
BTTS & Arsenal Win @ 12/5
Port Vale v Gillingham
In League One, Port Vale’s home form at the start of 2016-17 has been nothing short of phenomenal. Bruno Ribeiro’s side have picked up a maximum nine points from nine, scoring six times and conceding just once in the process. There’s no question that they’ll fancy their chances of making it four on the bounce on Saturday.
Vale also beat Derby’s U23s in the EFL Trophy at Vale Park, so confidence will be extremely high in the home dressing room. However, their defensive record may be put under threat by a Gillingham side that sit level with the hosts on 11 points.
Nine of Gillingham’s 10 competitive matches this term have ended in BTTS winners while the visitors have notched six in just three league games on the road. They have shipped eight during that time, though, and those defensive weaknesses could play a huge part in deciding the outcome of this one too.
Jay Emmanuel-Thomas and co. are capable of finding the target against Vale, we just don’t think it will be enough to avoid defeat.
BTTS & Port Vale Win @ 15/4
Maidstone United v Guiseley
Sorry Guiseley are still searching for a first away point of the Conference National season, but it hasn’t been due to a lack of goals as Adam Lockwood’s men boast five in five on the road. Even if they do increase their tally during the trip to the Gallagher Stadium, it seems inevitable that they will taste another defeat.
The visitors do boast some decent attacking talent in the form of Adam Boyes, Oli Johnson, and the experienced Michael Rankine. Given that Maidstone have shipped 10 in just five home games would suggest that attack will be the best form of attack for Guiseley, and we expect them to score.
Having said that, attack will be the best form of defence for the home side too. Jay Saunders will pinpoint this as the perfect opportunity to seal a crucial three points, and will target a very suspect away defence as the best chance of getting the win.
Guiseley have leaked 11 on the road already, and that will probably be their downfall again. The hosts should prevail, but don’t be surprised if the visitors score too.
