It’s the final Saturday of the season where we’ll be able to pick matches from al five of England’s top divisions, so let’s hope we can celebrate in style with a winning treble on the BTTS market.
We’re backing the following three games to bring goals for both teams. With a potential payout of just over 7/2, it would be a great way to get our weekend up and running in style. Hopefully, we’ll see goals galore.
West Ham United V Everton
Results haven’t been great for West Ham in recent weeks, but Slaven Bilic’s men continue to provide goals galore with eight of their last 10 ending in BTTS winners. There’s no reason to think that trend will end as they entertain Everton at the London Stadium.
The Hammers do have a number of injuries, but they still continue to find the net, and should be able to play with a little more freedom now that they’re virtually safe from the threat of relegation. Given that Everton have shipped 24 in 16 away games, a home goal looks likely.
Ronald Koeman’s men will be up for this first trip to the new stadium, though, and will be eager to put pressure on the top six by taking advantage on FA Cup weekend. The in-form Romelu Lukaku will always carry a huge threat, which is why the Toffees should add to their tally of 19 on the road.
Everton won the reverse game via a 2-0 scoreline, and could well win this one too. On this occasion, though, the Hammers will be expected to score too. Back both teams to score.

Bristol City v Barnsley
It has been a long and difficult season for Lee Johnson’s Robins. However, they’ve probably done enough to stay up thanks largely to their impressive scoring form at Ashton Gate. While that should continue on Saturday, the hosts shouldn’t expect to have things all their own way against a fairly strong Barnsley.
The hosts have scored 30 home goals this term and pose a continued threat through on-loan star Tammy Abraham. Barnsley, meanwhile, have conceded 28 goals on their travels, which should give City plenty of optimism as they bid for a fourth home win on the bounce.
Barnsley have hit 30 goals of their own on their travels, though, and have scored twice in each of their last two away games also. The quality of Tom Bradshaw, Adam Armstrong, and Marley Watkins should be enough to give the travelling Tykes something to cheer in this one.
The sides shared four goals at Oakwell back in October. Do not be surprised if we see more of the same in this one.

Gillingham v Fleetwood Town
With just two games to go, Fleetwood have to believe that automatic promotion from League One is still a possibility. They will probably need six points to have any chance of pipping Bolton to that position, starting with a trip to Priestfield. While the visitors will fancy their chances, the Gills may have something to say about that in their final home game of the season.
Gillingham haven’t been anywhere near as consistent as their opponents, but they do tend to score goals here. A return of 30 goals in 22 matches is more than respectable for a side sitting just four points above the drop zone, and Adrian Pennock will be looking to his attacking stars for inspiration once more.
It’s the visitors who have the far bigger incentive to perform, though, and they should be confident about letting their quality shine through to increase their tally of 27 away goals. The Trawlermen are in good form having won their last two matches also. A goal scored should be the minimum expectation.
Fleetwood picked up a 2-1 win in the reverse match at Highbury. A similar story in Kent would suit us just fine.
