A BTTS & Win treble is probably your best bet at landing a big money payout on any given Saturday, and our weekly shot this time offers a chance to turn a small £10 stake into a massive £1136!
Join us on the three selections below, and hope that all three teams can win their matches without keeping a clean sheet. If they do, your weekend will be an absolute cracker.
Blackburn Rovers v QPR
Ian Hollyway’s men picked up a fantastic point at St James’ Park on Wednesday night, and the R’s will now head to Ewood Park with high hopes of going one better to register their sixth away win of the season. Given Blackburn’s problems, there’s a good chance that they will.
The visitors have actually performed better away from the capital this season while the return of Ravel Morrison, who could be in line for a second debut, will give them an added sense of enthusiasm for the crucial run of fixtures coming up.
Those optimisms cannot be shared by Blackburn, who are second bottom and seemingly heading for relegation. But while results have been hard to come by for Owen Coyle’s side, they do at least find the target regularly on home soil, scoring in each of their last nine league matches here.
Nevertheless, confidence is drained and their defence has shipped 24 times on home soil, including twice against Leeds on Wednesday. Another both teams to score defeat could well be on the cards; at 6/1, it’s well worth its inclusion.
BTTS & QPR Win @ 6/1
Walsall v Northampton Town
In League One, back-to-back draws have badly damaged Walsall’s play-off bid. However, it’s not all over for Jonathan Whitney’s men, and they could resurrect those hopes with an important three points at the Bescot on Saturday.
They shouldn’t expect an easy ride against Northampton, though, as the Cobblers will be in better spirits following last weekend’s 3-0 win over Coventry. That was the away side’s first win in six league matches, but they have scored in four of the last five and should fancy their chances against a Walsall side that has already conceded 21 times in just 14 home games.
The hosts have hit 24 goals in that time, though, and will be looking to Simeon Jackson and Erhun Oztumer for further inspiration here. Given that the visitors have leaked five in each of their last two away games, the home crowd will be very disappointed if their heroes don’t grab at least a couple too.
Northampton have scored 19 but conceded 28 in their 15 away games this season. If that doesn’t point to a home win and BTTS, what does?
BTTS & Walsall Win @ 10/3
Exeter v Crewe Alexandra
Paul Tisdale’s Exeter are undoubtedly the form side in League Two right now, with his men registering six straight wins in an 11-game unbeaten run. Another win on Saturday would put them right on the heels of the automatic promotion spots, and that added incentive should lead them to victory once more.
The Grecians haven’t enjoyed the best of seasons at home, but they are improving and now have 12 in their last four at St James’ Park. With struggling Crewe conceding 23 times already on the road, it’s hard to see Ollie Watkins and co. struggling for goals in this one.
Crewe aren’t exactly the most frequent scorers with only 12 away goals, but they did score at Doncaster a fortnight ago as well twice in the reverse game against Exeter at Gresty Road. Nevertheless, the fact they’ve not won in 10 league outings is a major cause for concern.
We can’t see them ending that run, but they could well score a goal. Back Exeter and BTTS at 11/4.
