A lack of matches from the top two divisions may remove some of the excitement from this weekend’s schedule, but that won’t stop us from trying to land a healthy amount of profit with this 9/2 treble on the BTTS market.
We’ve picked three games which we think will end in goals for both sides. The results are irrelevant; as long as we get the goals, we’ll be starting the month with a winner.
Here are our selections.
Millwall v Bradford City
The most exciting domestic match of the afternoon comes from the Den, where early League One promotion hopefuls Millwall and Bradford face off in what should be a thrilling battle. If it lives up to the billing, we could be in for a cracker.
Last season, both matches ended in BTTS winners, which is a very positive start for our selection. Meanwhile, Millwall have notched five goals in just two home games while Bradford boast three in two away games.
While both defences have performed well – aside from Millwall’s capitulation in an away trip to Peterborough – the quality of attackers should provide a constant threat of goals. The likes of Steve Morison, Billy Clarke, and Aiden O’Brien are all capable of finding the target.
Millwall have scored in every game this season while Bradford have one so in each of their last five. Back the trend to continue in an action-packed contest here.

Stevenage v Hartlepool United
For the neutral, Craig Hignett’s Hartlepool have fast become one of the most interesting sides to watch in League Two thanks to their unpredictable nature. More importantly, they’re fast becoming a firm favourite on the BTTS coupon too following a run of five straight winners to start 2016-17.
That run has included five goals for, and four goals against on the road. After registering four points from six, they should be confident ahead of this clash against a Stevenage side who are currently just one place above the drop zone.
But while the firepower of Billy Paynter and Padraig Amond will give the visitors confidence, a poor defensive record could leave the door ajar for the hosts. Darren Sarll’s men have found the net in both home games so far, registering a great 2-1 win against Luton in their last game at the Lamex. They’ll be hoping for more of the same here.
Both teams have reason to fancy their chances of win. We wouldn’t like to predict a winner, but we do think both teams will score.
BTTS Yes @ 8/11
York City v Solihull Moors
In the Conference National, York City are really struggling to find their feet on the road. They’ve been far more confident at Bootham Crescent, however, and will be looking for another big result on Saturday. But they might not have things all their own way against Solihull Moors.
York boast six goals and seven points in three games at home this term, with Richard Broadie looking particularly impressive for Jackie McNamara’s men. However, their defensive problems mean that six of their opening seven league games have ended in BTTS winners, and the visitors will be eager to punish those shortcomings here.
Solihull are performing slightly above expectations, but have lost each of their last two fixtures. Marcus Bignot’s men will appreciate that this is a difficult contest against the Minstermen, but attack will be their best form of defence.
We expect York to score with ease. If the visitors can unleash Andy Brown on a regular basis, then they should find the target too.
BTTS Yes @ 8/13
