Well, I’m 0-3 after last weekend’s BTTS treble fell short, but there were at least four goals scored and still hope that we could win at half time. Of course, the Premier League’s back this weekend, so let’s crack on with one BTTS Yes pick from each of England’s top three divisions.
Liverpool v West Ham
Liverpool have a 66.3% home BTTS Yes hit-rate, with 7 of their 11 Premier League games seeing both teams score, and 3 of their last 4 at Anfield. Perhaps crucially, Liverpool played in the League Cup midweek – losing 2-1 on aggregate away to Chelsea after extra time – while West Ham had already exited said competition and should therefore field a team of fresher and better rested players.
The Hammers have an astonishingly high 90% BTTS Yes win rate in their ten away Premier League games played in 2014/15, with only Chelsea – who are the worst BTTS Yes home team in the league- spoiling their record.
This hasn’t historically been a BTTS Yes game at Anfield over the years, but it was last time Liverpool hosted West Ham and 5 of the last 6 overall H2H clashes, including at Upton Park, have seen both teams score.

Huddersfield v Leeds
A Yorkshire derby, and encouragingly one in which both teams have scored in 5 of the last 6 overall H2H clashes, and three straight in Huddersfield. The Terriers have an overall BTTS Yes hit-rate of 61.5% from 13 home matches, with 8 seeing both teams score, 3 of which came in their last 4 games.
Leeds United have an impressive BTTS Yes hit-rate of 76.9% from 13 away Championship games played this season, with ten of them seeing both team score. Indeed, both teams have scored in 7 of Leeds’ last 8 away contests, so it wouldn’t be a shock to see that become 8 in 9 this weekend.

Leyton Orient v Scunthorpe
Leyton Orient only have a 53.3% BTTS Yes hit-rate in their home games, which equates to 7/12, but four of their last five home League One games have seen both teams score, so there’s enough recent merit to expect that Barry Hearn’s boys can score and concede this weekend.
However, Scunthorpe’s 83.3% away BTTS Yes hit-rate is the most appealing part of this equation. Indeed, the Iron have scored and conceded in their last six League One away games, making up an overall 10/12 record. Plus, for what it counts, both teams have scored in the last six H2H meetings at Brisbane road.
