The BTTS & Win coupon offers punters a fantastic opportunity to win big from minimal stakes and we’re hoping to win over £900 from just a £10 stake on Saturday.
We picked two out of three correct selections on Tuesday; hopefully we can go one better with this weekend treble at Coral.
Blackpool V Nottingham Forest
Sleeping giants Nottingham Forest made a promising start to life after Stuart Pearce with a decent 3-2 away win at Brighton last weekend followed by a comfortable 3-0 win over Wigan on Wednesday. We’re backing new boss Dougie Freedman to continue his 100% record with another win at Bloomfield Road.
On paper, Forest are one of the division’s top sides and the sense of renewed hope should help them over the coming weeks as they look to rescue their season with a late play-off push. They will be fully expected to grab all three points against rock-bottom Blackpool.
The Tangerines, however, have improved slightly but remain rooted to the Championship table and are unlikely to leave it this weekend, regardless of how struggling Wigan do in their match. Off field issues made survival a tough task before a ball had even been kicked and they should be set for yet another home loss against Forest.
On a brighter note, Blackpool can take heart from Forest’s defensive vulnerabilities by adding to their 21 conceded away goals. Unfortunately, though, even that probably won’t earn them a share of the spoils.

Plymouth Argyle V Cambridge United
Wins over Accrington and Wycombe have thrust Plymouth back into the League Two play-off zone and John Sherdian’s men will be eager to keep that run going this weekend. However, they should expect a tough test from Richard Money’s U’s.
Cambridge have struggled in the league since playing Manchester United in the FA Cup, but the visitors have at least scored in four of their past five matches. They’ll be expecting to produce some opportunities at Home Park on Saturday and we think the away side will get on the scoresheet.
However, Cambridge’s away record doesn’t make for great reading and their 21 goals for have been largely overshadowed by the 23 against. Those stats would suggest plenty of action but Plymouth’s strong home form cannot be overlooked.
Argyle have won nine of 16 home matches, losing just three, and will be fancied to complete a hat-trick of league wins here. Nevertheless, they may need a few goals to claim the points.

Eastleigh V Torquay United
Richard Hill’s Eastleigh currently reside just outside the Conference play-off places and will be hoping to keep their promotion dreams alive with three points over Torquay this weekend. However, the Spitfires might be pushed all the way at the Silverlake Stadium.
Goals have been a common feature of Eastleigh’s recent matches, with a total of nine goals being scored in their past two games alone. The hosts will be pleased to see five of those come at the right end, but will be concerned at conceding four. We’d certainly expect a BTTS winner against a Torquay side that has posted 22 but leaked 26 in 17 matches on the road.
Chris Hargreaves’ men actually won the reverse clash 2-0 at Plainmoor and the Gulls will certainly fancy their chances of finding the target again here. However, their eight away losses will have the alarm bells ringing as they prepare to face an Eastleigh side that has only lost twice at home.
That strong home form should be enough to see the hosts through this encounter, but we still think Torquay will cause a scare or two. Back Eastleigh to edge a thrilling fixture.
