With a weekend full of pre-Christmas bargains, we are banking on three goals to help top our coffers up before the Christmas party season begins…. We know how expensive this can be!
With one game from League’s one and two and one from the National League, this treble pays just over 5/1 with BetVictor, so good luck to all that follow.
Scunthorpe Vs Peterborough
Graham Westley’s Peterborough travels to Glanford Park, where they seek to make it a fifth win in a row, and a fifth away win of the season. Looking to build on their seventh place standing in League one are hosts Scunthrope, known to some as The Irons.
Mark Robin’s home side themselves are looking for back-to-back victories after an impressive away performance in midweek away at Bury. The form of both sides are generally above average with the hosts netting four wins in the last six, with posh going one better with five wins in the same period.
Westley’s Peterborough side are netting goals for fun, bagging twenty goals to seven conceded. The Peterborough side a few seasons ago when the Betfred goals galore coupon begun usually omitted posh from the coupon, due to their playing style and seems as though that tendency is back. With goals inundated at both ends from the visitors, the hosts themselves have a good ratio of goals also.
It is no doubt this game is the shortest price on the coupon for three or more with hotshot Paddy Madden with an impressive thirteen goals this campaign. Posh have a variety of goal scorers so there should be no shortage of goals in this game.
Recommendation – over 2.5 goals 1.65 BetVictor
Dagenham Vs Plymouth
Table toppers Argyle travel to the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham Stadium in East London, where both sides at opposite ends of the table clash.
Derek Adams Plymouth will not take the Daggers lightly, as Wayne Burnett’s men look to build on their away win at Wimbledon Tuesday night. Importantly the hosts did not concede, but face a fierce match. The visitors look to build on their impressive tally in a highly competitive League Two campaign this term.
Plymouth have arguably one of the most sort after hotshots in their side, Rueben Reid, who has six goals to his name this term but is still side-lined. This has allowed Argyle’s resources look elsewhere in Graham Carey and Jake Jervis both with seven goals under their belts.
The hosts have not won at home at all this season, and this could continue as the visitors are worthy favourites for the game.
Both sides need a victory for the same reason, and the daggers will need to use their midweek game to boost confidence. Part of me thinks Wayne Burnett may look for the draw, but Argyle will be out to win it, and could be a narrow victory, or a tub thumper for the hosts!
Although the under line is the narrow favourite, bookies are unsure on this generally. I will edge on the over line as this is a shade of odds against as the combined percentage of results makes the 21/20 a smidgen of value.
Recommendation – over 2.5 goals 21/20 BetVictor
Barrow Vs Woking
Garry Hill’s Woking finally turned their fortune around with a key win against Tranmere on Tuesday night, which saw the cards with four goals to one with goals from Dan Holman, Joe Quigley and John Goddard. In addition the news that defender Cameron Norman has extended his loan will see the cards through the gruelling Christmas schedule.
Barrow come into this from a defeat to Dover and one win in the last six. Woking seeks to build on two straight wins, having lost three of the previous four.
The cards top scorer John Goddard has eleven goals from the last twenty-two appearances and will be motivated to help his side generate back to back victories win a win at Holker Street Saturday.
Darren Edmonson’s Barrow will look to explore the recent weaknesses with Woking, which has been conceding goals. They themselves especially in the last six have seen a total of twenty-two goals combined with Woking one less. Translated five of the last six Barrow games have ended with three or more with the cards seeing four of the last six in all competitions.
I will be expecting the goal tally to ring in today. Garry Hill has created some stability again with his side. With Barrow looking to curtail their losing tally with form and results, trying to make a case for fewer than three goals is tough. From the style of Woking I have seen week in week out, the gaps are there.
The hosts have a good average at home, and the odds suggest both teams will look to win it, especially with a lack of draws between the two.
Recommendation: Over 2.5 goals – 4/5 SkyBet
