Well, switching from English leagues to European didn’t make any difference last weekend, illustrating just how hard it is to pick a winning BTTS Yes treble on any given Saturday, but I’ll keep trying. This Saturday I’m trying one Italian game and two Dutch. The prices aren’t great, but three of the best BTTS Yes teams in Europe are involved, so let’s hope it’s our turn to win.
Cagliari v Empoli
Gianfranco Zola’s Cagliari let us down by failing to score away to Sampdoria last weekend, but we’ll give them a chance to repay us on home soil. In terms of form, Cagliari have lost five of their last six games and are second bottom in the Serie A standings.
Thankfully, besides last weekend, Cagliari have a very strong record of scoring in recent games with both teams scoring in eight of their last nine contests, home and away. Purely at home, Cagliari have a staggeringly high BTTS Yes strike rate of 84.6% – making them the fourth best home team in Europe for such a bet – with both teams scoring in 11/13 matches, including six straight.
Fifteenth-placed Empoli, meanwhile, have a 66.7% BTTS Yes strike rate from their twelve Serie A away games played in 2014/15, with both teams scoring in 9/12. Now, Empoli did draw 0-0 away to Palermo in their last road game, but Cagliari haven’t kept a clean at home this season and my guess is that they won’t on Saturday.

Twente v Zwolle
Home and away, Dutch Eredivisie side Twente are currently the second best team in Europe for BTTS Yes matches, making up a 76.9% strike rate. Strictly at home, Twente also have a 76.9% BTTS Yes strike rate, with both teams scoring in 10/13, including four straight.
Zwolle, meanwhile, only have a BTTS Yes strike rate of 46.2% from their away matches, with both teams scoring in 6/13. However, both teams scored in each of Zwolle’s last two road games and they’re fifth in the Dutch top-flight, while their hosts this weekend are ninth, so I’d expect Zwolle to hold up their part of the BTTS Yes bargain this weekend.

Cambuur v Utrecht
Situated tenth in the Eredivisie standings, Cambuur don’t have a high BTTS Yes strike rate at home – unlike their away record of 84.6% – with 7/13 of their home matches seeing both teams score for a 53.8% strike rate, but I’m placing my faith in Utrecht’s likelihood of being involved in BTTS games more than anything else.
Indeed, home and away, Utrecht are the fourth best team in Europe for BTTS Yes matches with an overall percentage of 73.1. Even better, Utrecht have a 76.9% BTTS Yes strike rate in their away matches, with 10/13 seeing both teams score.
