It’s FA Cup weekend, but our BTTS & Win coupon focuses on league action and our three selections amount to a potential payout of over £800 from a tenner.
We’re backing three teams to win their respective matches, only they must concede in the process. Our selections come from the Premier League, League Two, and National League, and we have plenty of reason to be optimistic.
Bournemouth v West Ham United
Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth picked up a decent point at Old Trafford last weekend, but the Cherries have now gone eight Premier League games without a win. They’d love to end that run on Saturday. However, they shouldn’t expect an easy ride against the Hammers.
West Ham were well beaten by Chelsea on Monday. Nevertheless, Slaven Bilic’s men have looked far better in recent weeks and should fancy their chances against a team that has been sliding down the table for some time, especially if Andy Carroll and co. can assert themselves early on.
The visitors haven’t kept a clean sheet in six, though. Given that the hosts have scored in their last two and will be in confident mood following last week’s improvement, we’d expect them to score too.
However, with Tyrone Mings suspended, it could leave the door open for the Hammers to shine.

Doncaster Rovers v Cheltenham Town
Doncaster Rovers are sitting pretty at the top of League Two and now hold an 11 point gap above the play-offs with just 11 games to go. An in-form Cheltenham will certainly give Darren Ferguson’s men a run for their money, but it’s a test that they should be ready to pass.
The visitors have now gone four games without defeat, but three of those matches were at Whaddon Road. On their travels, the Robins boast just four wins from 16. Against the strongest team in the division, there’s a good chance their tally of 27 conceded will be increased too.
Donny have bags of goal in their arsenal with John Marquis, James Coppinger, and Andrew Williams all proving their worth throughout the season. Having said that, the fact that they’ve shipped in each of their last five games means that they might need at least a couple of goals to grab the points here.
The hosts are still unbeaten at the Keepmoat and we don’t see that changing here, even if the visitors do get on the scoresheet.

Solihull Moors v Braintree Town
It has been a strange few weeks for National League side Braintree, but a run of three defeats in five shows that Hakan Heyrittin’s men aren’t in the best form. While relegation doesn’t look on the cards, another defeat may well be as they travel to Solihull Moors.
The visitors have scored 24 away goals this term and should fancy their chances against a home side that has leaked 26 in 17 at Damson Park. Having said that, the fact they’ve shipped 28 in that period is a cause for concern, not least because the hosts have won four of their last seven at home.
Liam McDonald’s men are virtually safe for next season and would love to finish the season in the top half. A big win on Saturday would give those hopes another serious boost, and they should be confident as they’ve already beaten their opponents on the road earlier this season.
Goals haven’t been a common feature for the hosts in recent weeks, but they can grab a couple here. Let’s just hope the visitors grab one too.
