Got a £10 stake to spare for Saturday’s football? Fancy turning it into over £500 profit? We might have the perfect treble for you.
We’re backing three teams to win their respective matches, but also fancy the visitors to grab consolation goals. If results go our way, Saturday night should be a cracker.
Here are our selections.
West Ham United v West Bromwich Albion
The sale of Dimitri Payet has allowed Slaven Bilic’s men to focus on winning football matches, and the Hammers are now finally looking capable of enjoying a productive end to the season. The only thing that’s still missing is the feeling that London Stadium is a fortress. However, a weekend win over West Brom could go a long way to aiding their cause.
West Ham have looked vulnerable in Stratford, especially at the back, as was underlined by Manchester City twice in recent weeks. Given that they’ve shipped 20 goals in the league alone, the visiting Baggies should be confident about scoring through the likes of Salomon Rondon and
Having said that, it’s hard to argue against the quality of Andy Carroll right now. The talismanic striker is currently scoring goals for fun. When supported by Robert Snodgrass, Manuel Lanzini, and Michail Antonio, the home fans have every reason to expect goals as they look to close the gap on the eight-placed visitors.
West Ham are more than capable of winning, but those defensive weaknesses could allow the visitors to score too.
BTTS & West Ham Win @ 7/2
Norwich City v Nottingham Forest
They may have lost their manager, but Nottingham Forest have finally gained a sense of confidence thanks to a run of three wins in four games. However, that trio of victories all came at the City Ground as they continue to struggle on the road. We don’t expect that to change as they head to Carrow Road.
Forest last won an away game back in November, but they can be quietly optimistic about finding the target in Norfolk. Britt Assombalonga has been joined by Zach Clough and Ross McCormack in recent weeks, and that should give the Reds every chance of testing Norwich’s defence.
Alex Neil’s men are in good form too, though, in spite of the midweek draw at Wigan and are still holding onto hopes of the play-offs. Cameron Jerome and co. are more than capable of punishing an away team that’s conceded 28 times on the road. And the Canaries should be expected to chirp their way to three points with at least two or three goals.
The hosts have already beaten Forest 2-1 in Nottingham this season. Do not be surprised at a repeat scoreline here.
BTTS & Norwich Win @ 12/5
Colchester United v Barnet
Goals have been a common feature for League Two rivals Colchester and Barnet this season while they additionally share a recent run of poor form. However, three points on Saturday could be enough to kickstart either side’s bid for the play-offs.
The hosts have scored 42 league goals while the visitors boast 38 of their own. But those positive attacking stats have been undone slightly by the fact they’ve shipped 35 and 40 goals respectively. Given that the reverse clash was a 1-1 draw, this one stands out as a potential BTTS winner.
While Rossi Eames’ men aren’t in great scoring form, they’ll always have a chance for goals through star man John Akinde. Having said that, the hosts have won each of their last four home games, scoring 12 times in the process.
The Eagles have certainly struggled for form on the road, but their home record could be enough to reignite that push for the play-offs. Expect them to underline those sentiments with a massive three points here, even if they do have to work for it.
