A very short international break and we are back with our domestic action. We have a Match Result and BTTS treble for you that returns a terrific some of cash for very little stake. Take a look…
Saturday’s treble returns a not to be sniffed at £480 to a £10 stake.
Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur – 5.30pm Saturday
Chelsea to win and BTTS – 5/2
Chelsea look red hot at the moment after the 3-0 second half demolition of Fulham last Saturday. Most people have them down as favourites for the title and it is hard to argue with that, based on recent form. Chelsea last tasted defeat in the league 14 matches ago and at home, they seem to be unbeatable with not a defeat to their name at Stamford Bridge. West Brom pushed them closest earlier on in the season but that’s as close anyone has got to beating Mourinho’s side. Chelsea should have far too much for their London rivals and I am expecting three points for the Blues.
We think Chelsea are in too good form to miss out on three points here, despite Spurs having an exceptional away record. They have won nine of their 14 games on the road and lost just three times. 21 goals have also been fired in from those 14 games and those stats, along with this being a derby which means a lot to both sets of fans, Tim Sherwood’s side should have enough to at least get one goal. Emmanuel Adebayor has had a transformation since Sherwood came on board as chief and has found the net 8 times in the league, this is the most likely source of an away goal and I am predicting the Togo international will do it.
Notts County v Leyton Orient – 3.00pm Saturday
Leyton Orient to win and BTTS – 3/1
Notts County sit right at the foot of the table but are five points away Bristol City in 20th who are currently safe, so there is plenty of opportunity for a comeback. This County side certainly aren’t the worst outfit in the division and being at home today, will give them hope as 73% of their points have been earned at Meadow Lane. Coming up against second placed Leyton Orient is likely going to end in a defeat, but I can see the Magpies finding the net. At home they have scored 26 goals in their 16 games and in Calum McGregor, who is on loan from Celtic, they have a real goal scorer.
The last time these two sides met, it was at Brisbane Road in September and Leyton Orient won 5-1. The sides are closer in quality now but The O’s will take confidence that they have the making of County. Orient got through a small drop of form and have now won three games on the bounce and confidence will be back to being sky high with automatic promotion is a very realistic target. Goals are never a problem and Orient have scored in every single away game this season, proving the faith they have in their attack, In those 17 games they won 10 and they have more than enough quality to make it 11 here. Expect goals from Mooney who is on 16 for the campaign and Lisbie who has bagged 12.
Derby County v Millwall – 3.00pm Saturday
Derby to win and BTTS – 11/5
Derby are surely nailed on to win this game. Each of their last four home games have ended in victory which included the visit from ‘start of the season’ favourites QPR. A great scalp. Millwall haven’t won a game away from the Den since September when they grabbed a 1-0 result over Charlton. So a shock draw or win seems out of the question for the visitors and I am expecting Derby to add to their points tally as they look to catch up with second placed Burnley and take an automatic promotion place.
Another tough, tough game for Millwall sees them make the daunting trip to Pride Park as their time in the Championship dangles by a thread. Just one point separates them from Charlton who are in the bottom three and only two points is the advantage they have on bottom of the table Barnsley. If Ian Holloway’s side do not start picking up points, at least one of the teams below probably will. The reason I am predicting a Millwall consolation is that the situation has reached a critical stage and the league table should have given them enough of a fright to start playing. Four of their last five games ended with BTTS and I am expecting another here.
