Saturday’s BTTS & Win treble is a 50/1 shot, and we’re hopeful that our three chosen teams can win their games despite conceding to turn our £10 stake into over £500!
Our selections come from the Championship, League Two, and National League. With all three leagues reaching a crucial stage of the campaign, there will be huge incentives for all teams involved. Let’s hope they can deliver the goods.
Nottingham Forest v Burton Albion
Championship strugglers Burton Albion have scored just once on their travels but can head to Nottingham Forest with high hopes of doubling that tally. But even if they do, the Brewers will be lucky to leave the City Ground with anything other than a defeat.
Nigel Clough’s men have failed to score in four league games since losing to Manchester United in the Carabao Cup, but will fancy a goal against a side that hasn’t kept a clean sheet at home since the opening weekend. Still, it’s hard to see Marvin Sordell and co. scoring more than once.
The hosts have a number of decent attacking options in Barry McKay, Daryl Murphy and Zach Clough.While they’ve only scored seven in six home games, they should be confident, especially given the fact that Burton have conceded 11 in their six away matches.
Forest picked up a 2-1 win over Sheffield United in their last home game, and will be expected to pick up another three points here. Let’s just hope the visitors can grab a consolation.
Coventry City v Colchester United
Back-to-back defeats have seen Coventry City fall out of the League Two play-off zone, and they’ll be desperate to bounce back with an important win on Saturday. A home clash against Colchester should be the perfect opportunity for them to do just that.
The Sky Blues have enjoyed a decent start at the Ricoh, winning five of seven games, scoring nine times in the process. Jodi Jones and Duckens Nazon have provided plenty of firepower so far, and should give the hosts a great chance of goals against the visitors. Not least because Colchester have shipped 13 in seven away games.
John McGreal’s side have hit seven in that period, though, and can look to Mikael Mandron for inspiration in the attacking third. There’s every chance that they’ll score against an out-of-form home side. Unfortunately, their defensive vulnerabilities could come back to haunt them.
It looks like a BTTS winner will be on the cards. On this occasion, we’re backing the hosts to come away with the points.
Bromley v Woking
Anthony Limbrick’s Woking have enjoyed a phenomenal start to the National League campaign, and will fancy themselves for a play-off spot. Then again, they shouldn’t expect to have things all their own way as they make the trip to seventh-placed Bromley.
The visitors were taken to extra-time in the FA Cup on Tuesday night, which could result in tired legs for a squad that lacks a little depth. Given that they’ve already conceded 12 in seven away games, there’s every chance that it will leave the door open for Bromley to increase their tally of 12 home goals.
Neil Smith’s men are pretty economical at the back too, shipping just four at Hayes Lane. With Brett Williams and co. causing damage at the other end, the hosts can be confident about firing a warning shot to their rivals.
We’re backing a home win, but Woking should be scoring too.
