Saturday’s BTTS treble is a huge 66/1 shot in which we’re backing three home sides to win their matches while allowing the visitors to grab a consolation.
With selections from the Premier League, League One, and National League, we have high hopes of ending the month in epic style with the big victory. Let’s hope these sides can do the business.
Bournemouth V Newcastle United
Eddie Howe’s men were well below par during their 4-1 defeat at Huddersfield two weeks ago, but their form since Christmas has largely been pretty strong. The Cherries have avoided defeat in the other seven games, and will be eager to get back to winning ways against Newcastle here.
Bournemouth have been particularly impressive at the Vitality Stadium, registering 10 points from a possible 12. The last three of those have been 2-1 victories, and the firepower of Jermain Defoe, Joshua King and Callum Wilson should give them a decent chance of another home win on Saturday.
The visitors are on a three-game unbeaten run themselves, but Rafa Benitez’s men have won just three away games, conceding 21 times in the process. While they have shown an ability to score goals, there is a good chance that defensive frailties will see them come unstuck in Dorset.
The Cherries have picked up a 1-0 victory over the Magpies already this season. Even if Newcastle do score in this reverse clash, a league double for Bournemouth should be on the cards.

Rotherham United V Doncaster Rovers
Goals have been a common feature at the New York Stadium this term, where the Millers have scored 36 and conceded 18 from just 17 league fixtures. Those stats would point towards a BTTS and home win outcome against Doncaster on Saturday. In truth, there are many more reasons to fancy that result.
Rotherham are in great form right now, winning six on the spin as part of a13-match unbeaten streak in League One. This run has put them back in contention for automatic promotion and Paul Warne will look to David Ball and co. to keep that form going against their South Yorkshire rivals.
Doncaster have largely disappointed this term, not least on the road where they have leaked 23 and won just four times. Their season is already petering out and Darren Ferguson’s men have failed to win any of their last five on the road. Having said that, all of those games have been BTTS winners, which is another source of confidence for this selection.
The stats combined with the derby factor should lead to a game of goals. On this occasion, the home advantage and added quality should see the hosts prevail.

AFC Fylde V Dover Athletic
In the National League, Fylde are still surprisingly in the hunt for a play-off spot and could give themselves a serious boost by leapfrogging Dover on Saturday. While their attacking quality should give them a good chance, they should be prepared for a tough battle at Mill Farm.
A couple of poor results have left Dave Challinor’s men in need of three points, but the quality of Jack Muldoon and Danny Rowe will boost their hopes. The hosts have hit 33 home goals this term, recording seven wins and seven draws from 17 matches in spite of conceding 20 goals. Given that Dover have lost three of their last four competitive games themselves, a home win could be on the cards.
Dover have been pretty solid on their travels, however, especially when it comes to scoring goals. Nonetheless, one clean sheet in the last seven would suggest that they will allow the hosts to have a few opportunities. If the home strikers are on form, this could make all the difference.
It could be a close affair, but we’re backing the hosts to sneak their way to a crucial three points.
