If you’re looking for a huge payout without backing a dozen selections, the BTTS & Win coupon is definitely your friend.
We’ve all seen those jammy gits that land a 100/1 eight-fold, but there’s always one team that ends up being a bigger disappointment than England at a tournament. You’ve far better chance of picking three teams to win without keeping a clean sheer.
Here are the three teams we’re backing to do just that on Saturday. It has to be worth a tenner.
QPR v Charlton Athletic
That funeral ceremony a few weeks back has seemingly kicked some of Charlton’s players into shape and the Addicks have seen improved results on the pitch. However, it hasn’t been enough to resurrect their slim hopes of survival and relegation from the Championship could be virtually sealed with a loss at Loftus Road.
Those improvements should help the visitors score, though, especially as the R’s haven’t kept a clean sheet in three matches. Sadly, though, we can’t see Jose Riga’s men scoring more than once. After all, they’ve only hit 14 away from the Valley all season.
Conversely, the visitors have shipped 42 on the road. Meanwhile, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s men have scored at least twice in each of their last four home games. If they repeat that feat here, it should be a home win in this London derby.
Let’s just hope they afford the visitors a consolation.

Sheffield United v Gillingham
Sheffield United fans have become even more accustomed to anticlimax than my Mrs’s in recent years, and it looks like being another season of disappointment at Bramall Lane. However, Nigel Adkins men can keep their slim hopes alive with an important win against Gillingham.
The Blades certainly have the firepower to do just that. Spearheaded by 18-goal striker Billy Sharp, the United attack has hit an impressive 37 home goals this term and should have no problems finding the net against an away side that’s leaked 29 on the road.
Gillingham are in great form, though, and will be eager to increase their tally of 28 away goals. It would be a surprise if Justin Edinburgh’s men fail to score, but we do think that they’ll suffer their first loss in six.
We’re confident that both teams will score. And with home advantage on their side, we’re backing the Blades to cut the Gills down.

Luton Town v Accrington Stanley
After a slow start to the campaign, John Coleman’s Accrington have reacted brilliantly and enter the final stretch of the League Two campaign with genuine hopes of gaining automatic promotion. A win over Luton at Kenilworth Road would give their hopes a huge boost, but they might be required to score several goals to seal the points against a solid opponent.
Nathan Jones’s Hatters haven’t been in the best of form recently, though, losing three of their last four matches. Having said that, the hosts have scored 21 home goals this term and can look to Jack Marriot and Cameron McGeeham for inspiration here.
It might not be enough to grab a share of the spoils, though. If the visitors can provide Billy Kee with the right service, Stanley have every chance of coming away with all three points.
Luton will want to entertain their fans but a lack of incentive could hand Accrington the initiative, which is why we’re backing an away win. Nevertheless, we do think the hosts will score too.
