The BTTS & Win coupon is one that offers a chance to win big from a small stake and only a few selections. We’re hoping to prove that on Saturday with a huge 151/1 treble.
To win the huge return, we’ll need all three games to end in BTTS winners with our selected teams winning With a mix of cup and league matches included, it has to be worth a punt.
West Bromwich Albion V Southampton
In the FA Cup, Premier League strugglers West Brom and Southampton meet at the Hawthorns for a second time in a fortnight. After picking up a 3-2 win in the reverse clash, the Saints will certainly be looking for the same as they bid to capitalise on what has been a testing week for the Baggies on and off the pitch.
Southampton aren’t in great form themselves, but have shown more promise than their rivals. Mauricio Pellegrino can look to the likes of Dusan Tadic, James Ward-Prowse and January signing Guido Carrillo or inspiration in the attacking third, and it should be enough to punish the poor hosts.
West Brom can score goals themselves, especially through former Saints star Jay Rodriguez. Nonetheless, Alan Pardew’s men will be far more focused on Premier League survival and the thought of regaining some stability after this week’s issues behind the scenes. Those factors, combined with their lack of quality, would suggest that the hosts will struggle.
It’s hard to have any confidence in Southampton registering clean sheets right now. Nonetheless, tey should seal their progress to the last eight here.
Shrewsbury Town V Rotherham United
League One side Rotherham United are having a very good season and have been productive in the attacking third even on their travels. However, the trip to leaders Shrewsbury certainly won’t be easy and they could come up short at the New Meadow.
The Millers have scored 19 times on their travels, so David Ball and co. should have a good chance of breaking through a resolute Shrews defence, especially after winning five on the bounce. Nonetheless, the fact that the hosts have conceded just eight home goals makes it difficult to envisage the visitors having the same levels of success that they’ve enjoyed in recent weeks.
Paul Hurst’s hosts will be particularly determined to bounce back in style after losing their last home game. Tuesday’s away win at Fleetwood will have restored the confidence, meaning Stefan Payne and Shaun Whalley can enter this one with immense confidence.
Rotherham have been in great form and should score. Nonetheless, they are due a loss after 12 games unbeaten. Back the league leaders to make it unlucky 13.
Torquay United V Dagenham & Redbridge
In the National League, Dagenham’s off field problems have been well documented and it’s no surprise that this has coincided with a poor run of results. We expect that to continue as they make the long trek to Torquay, even if the hosts are likely to let them score.
Daggers have lost four on the bounce and now seem very unlikely to reach the play-offs. Nonetheless, the fact that John Still’s men have scored in five of their last six away games is promising, especially as the hosts have leaked a massive 54 goals in total, including 21 in 16 at Plainmoor.
A return of seven points from three games has restored Torquay’s hopes of survival, however, and Gary Owers will be desperate to seal another important win here. Despite the fact they’ve not kept a clean sheet in 10 league games, they do have the attacking talents to cause problems for the out-of-form visitors.
The BTTS part of the bet looks likely. Let’s hope the hosts can put on another winning performance too.
