Saturday’s BTTS treble includes selections from the Championship, League Two, and the National League. And with the chance to turn £10 into £49, we’re optimistic that these six teams will provide goals galore for a decent weekend winner.
The results are essentially irrelevant. As long as our chosen teams all score at some stage during the afternoon, we’ll be jumping for joy come 5PM. Here are our selections.
Sheffield Wednesday v Bristol City
Goals have been a common feature at Hillsborough this season with eight of Sheffield Wednesday’s nine competitive home games ending in BTTS winners. There’s no reason to think that trend will end as the Owls take on Bristol City.
Despite failing to repeat the form of last season, Carlos Carvalhal’s men do boast 15 goals in eight Championship home games while the likes of Gary Hooper, Jordan Rhodes, and Steven Fletcher will always give them a fighting chance of goals. Moreover, the fact that the visitors have conceded nine in their eight away games should be another source of confidence for the hosts.
Lee Johnson’s men are performing exceptionally well, though, winning each of their last four competitive matches and scoring 14 times on their travels. A win could even see the Robins climb into the automatic promotion places, which should give them a huge incentive.
Even if they don’t win, we’d expect the visitors to score. And even if they do win, we’d expect them to concede. Back both teams to score.
Wycombe Wanderers v Crawley Town
League Two outfit Wycombe have been a regular provider of goals at both ends of the pitch at Adams Park this term, with their eight league games bringing 17 goals for and 15 goals against. While Crawley’s scoring record isn’t anywhere near as high, we think this one will be a BTTS winner.
The Chairboys are currently in the play-off zone, so they’ll be eager to register another three points here. Their recent form has dropped off a little but they should at least score against one of the weaker teams in the division. In truth, Gareth Ainsworth will be very disappointed if his side fail to find the target.
Crawley aren’t in great scoring form but did get on the scoreboard in each of their last two competitive games. Moreover, they’ll see the home side’s recent wobbles as something to capitalise on, which can see Jimmy Smith and Jordan Roberts inspire Harry Kewell’s men to give the visiting fans something to cheer.
Neither side can be particularly confident at the back right now, which is why we think the attackers will prevail. Back a BTTS winner.
Woking v Maidenhead United
After registering a phenomenal FA Cup result at League One Bury, Anthony Limbrick’s men turn their attention back to their National League play-off bid. A win should see them move back into the top seven, but they won’t expect to have things all their own way against Maidenhead.
The Cards are fairly frequent scorers at Kingfield, registering 16 in nine matches so far. With Maidenhead conceding 15 in their nine away games, the hosts should at least score through the likes of Joe Ward and Regan Charles-Cook.
Alan Devonshire’s visitors know that they’ll be up against it, specially after failing to win any of their last three competitive matches. Having said that a return of 14 away goals should give them confidence in the attacking third against a Woking side that has leaked 10 at home. Meanwhile, the tired legs could play a crucial role too.
Both sides have impressed this season, performing above expectations. Let’s hope that shows with a game of goals in Surrey.
