What a weekend of football this is set to be. FA Cup weekend, two new managers in the Championship, and an enthralling set of Premier League fixtures too. If that wasn’t enough to keep you excited, how does winning £600 from a £10 treble sound? That’s what we thought.
Hopefully that’s exactly what we’ll be doing with this huge 59/1 treble on the BTTS & Win coupon at SkyBet. We’ve combined one selection from the Championship with two from the FA Cup action. Fingers crossed for what would be a huge winner.
Fulham V Birmingham City
Championship side Fulham have been a firm favourite on the BTTS market this term, with each of their last four matches ending with goals at both ends. There’s a good chance that the goals will keep flowing for Kit Symons side against Birmingham too.
The Cottagers might be sitting five points behind Birmingham, but they registered an impressive 4-2 win over Reading in their last home match. Despite the fact they’ve conceded 10 times in seven matches at Craven Cottage, the firepower of Moussa Dembele and Ross McCormack should give them a great chance of goals.

Visiting Birmingham might be sitting in the play-offs but their form has dropped off significantly in recent games. Gary Rowett’s men are three games without a single goal, but they should end that run against a vulnerable home defence. We’re just not sure that will be enough to see them secure any points.
Fulham are more than capable of continuing their improved form. But we do think the Blues will score too.

Burton Albion V Peterborough United
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s Brewers claimed a 2-1 league victory over Peterborough at the Pirelli Stadium back in August, and the hosts will be eager to repeat that feat as they meet in this weekend’s FA Cup first round encounter. However, the Posh are more than capable of pushing the home side all the way.
Peterborough have been pretty unpredictable in terms of results, but goals have been a common feature at both ends of the pitch for Graham Westley’s side. Five of their last six away matches have ended in BTTS winners, and there’s no reason to think the goals will dry up here.
The hosts have kept three clean sheets on the spin, but they know Peterborough will cause problems in the attacking third. Nonetheless, the Burton are more than capable of bringing their league form to the cup.
Both teams will be quietly confident but, if they play to their potential, the home side should prevail.

Plymouth Argyle V Carlisle United
League Two leaders Plymouth Argyle have been in phenomenal form at Home Park, and will be extremely confident about sealing their place in the second round of the cup as they take on Keith Curle’s Cumbrians.
The Pilgrims have won seven of their last eight home matches and Derek Adams will be looking to star strikers Reuben Reid and Jake Jervis to fire the hosts to success here. That run of great form began with a 4-1 win over Carlisle, and that’s exactly what the hosts will be looking to achieve here.
While the hosts will be confident about winning, it is worth noting that the visitors have scored in each of their last seven outings. They should be confident about finding the target once more, but it might not be enough for them to stop the in-form home side.
Carlisle are certainly capable of scoring, but it’s Plymouth who should book their place in round two.
