Turn £10 into £776 with one Saturday afternoon treble? That’s gotta sound tempting to any punter.
That’s especially true when you realise we just need three teams to win their respective matches without keeping a clean sheet. Given that none of the teams we’ve picked have brilliant backlines, but should beat inferior opposition, we have high hopes that this bet will give us a huge winner.
Here are our selections…
West Ham United v Watford
Slaven Bilic’s have had a topsy-turvy start to the new campaign, but they did begin life at the London Stadium with a win against Bournemouth and will be confident about grabbing another three points as they take on local rivals Watford.
The hosts have endured a lot of injuries but star man Dimitri Payet is now back in action and will give the Hammers plenty of reason for optimism. If the Frenchman can link up successfully with new signing Simone Zaza, Watford could be in for a long afternoon.
Walter Mazzarri’s start to life at Vicarage Road hasn’t been great. However, his side have at least found the target in all three matches this term and will be looking to Etienne Capoue to provide further inspiration here. Meanwhile, if Troy Deeney and Odion Ighalo can rediscover their shooting boots, the visitors have every chance of scoring.
With the extra energy provided by Payet’s return, though, we’ll be backing the Hammers to sneak the win.

QPR v Blackburn Rovers
In the Championship, Owen Coyle’s Blackburn boast just a solitary point after their first five fixtures and will be desperate to clinch a first win of the campaign following the international break. However, a trip to Loftus Road means that they’ll probably have to wait a little longer.
That’s because QPR are finally looking like a side that could be in the hunt for promotion back to the Premier League. Manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has built a solid R’s team, and the early signs during his first full season are very positive to say the least.
The quality of Sebastian Polter, Conor Washington and Tjarron Chery should prove too much for the visiting Rovers defence. However, the hosts have conceded five in five this term, which will lend a degree of confidence to the visitors.
Both of last season’s head-to-heads ended in score draws. We think it’ll be another BTTS winner here, but the added quality of QPR should shine through.

Bromley v Macclesfield Town
Goals have been a common feature at the Courage Stadium so far this season, with Bromley’s four home games providing a total of 16 goals; unfortunately for the hosts, 11 of them have been scored by the opposition. If they continue that sort of form on Saturday, Macclesfield will be ecstatic.
John Askey’s men have already scored six on the road this term, although that’s also the number they’ve conceded. Nevertheless, the likes of Kingsley James and Chris Holroyd will be licking their lips in anticipation of facing such a poor home defence. That firepower should see them through, even if they do concede.
Bromley will fancy their chances of scoring too, after finding the net in four of their last five. Neil Smith’s side certainly boast the attacking quality to score against the leaky Silkmen, it’s just a shame that there’s a good chance their work will be undone by their own defensive shortcomings.
The Conference often provides goals, and this clash has the makings of another entertaining contest. Nevertheless, it’s hard not to fancy Macclesfield for the win.
