What better way to end the month of February than turning £10 into whopping £500? That’s exactly what we’re looking to do with Saturday’s BTTS & Win treble.
We’re backing three home teams from the Football League to win their respective matches but also think the
Bournemouth V Blackburn Rovers
Eddie Howe’s Cherries have quickly seen their title hopes diminished but Bournemouth can still hold genuine hopes of automatic promotion and will be determined to get back to winning ways at home to Blackburn Rovers.
However, the home side are a little fragile after a run of four games without victory and Gary Bowyer’s men will hope to take advantage. With the likes of Jordan Rhodes and Rudy Gestede in attack, Rovers will be fully expected to cause some problems, but that still might not be enough to cage the wounded animal.
Blackburn’s frontline may be powerful but they have shipped 25 on the road and could well be punished by a Cherries side that boasts 30 at Dean Court. Bournemouth lost the reverse clash at Ewood Park via a 3-2 scoreline, but we think they can turn the tables around back on home soil.
Each of the away side’s last five competitive fixtures have ended in BTTS winners and we’re anticipating another fascinating contest here. However, we’re equally confident that Bournemouth will get back on track with a crucial home win.
BTTS & Bournemouth Win @ 12/5
Bristol City V Rochdale
League One leaders Bristol City are well on track to gaining automatic promotion and can give their title bid a huge boost with another three points at Ashton Gate on Saturday. However, the Robins might need to score more than once as they take on the division’s top scoring away side.
Keith Hill’s Dale have notched an impressive 33 goals on the road this term, but have also shipped 23. Whilst their overall away record stands amongst the best in League One, a trip to the league leaders will inevitably prove difficult, especially as Steve Cotterill’s men have dropped only 10 points from a possible 48.
City have also posted 31 goals from those 16 home fixtures and will be confident about increasing that tally here. However, the host have registered just one clean sheet in their past five fixtures and could need their attacking players to shine if they want to retain their five-point cushion at the League One summit.
This should be an explosive contest and we’re confident that both teams will get on the scoresheet. However, it’s equally hard to look past a home win, which is why we’re on this selection.
BTTS & Bristol City Win @ 5/2
Luton Town V Accrington Stanley
The high-flying Hatters have suffered a disappointed fortnight or so and will be desperate to get their promotion bid back on track with victory over Accrington at Kenilworth Road.
John Still’s men suffered harmful back-to-back defeats against Mansfield and Wimbledon but they’ll remain confident about climbing into the top three once more and will pinpoint this as the perfect chance to restart their promotion push, especially against an Accrington side that has shipped 30 and lost 10 of 16 matches on the road.
A four-game unbeaten streak will give Stanley, who have improved since John Coleman’s arrival, and the visitors should hope to score. However, they are unlikely to keep out a Luton side that boasts 24 home goals and their own defensive lapses could be crucial to their downfall against the promotion-chasing Hatters.
Luton must get back to winning traditions immediately and we think they will – although they might receive the odd scare along the way.
