Saturday is St George’s Day, and what better way to celebrate than slaying the bookies with a second winning BTTS treble of the week?
After starting the week with a winner on Tuesday night, we’re looking to double our delight with this 5/1 acca. All we need is all six teams to make the net bulge at some stage during the afternoon, and we’ll be counting our winnings once more.
QPR v Reading
For Championship rivals QPR and Reading, the final weeks of the season will be about as exciting as an afternoon with Michael Owen. However, we have every reason to think that there will be goals as the two sides collide at Loftus Road.
After all, goals have been a regular occurrence at W12. The Hoops have scored 35 in 21 home matches, leaking 24 at the other end while each of their last two matches here have ended in BTTS winner too.
As for Reading, 13 away defeats is hardly royal form, and 35 conceded will be a cause for concern as Brian McDermott’s men attempt to end a run of four straight losses. On a brighter note, the visitors have notched 25 goals away from the Madejski. Moreover, the fact their last three have all been BTTS winners suggest there should be goalmouth action here.
It doesn’t really matter who wins, and we’re hoping that freedom will transpire to create plenty of action. Back both teams to score.

Bury v Millwall
With three games to go, Neil Harris’s Millwall are looking a great bet for the play-offs and they could go a long way to cementing their place with three points against Bury. However, the Lions shouldn’t expect to roar their way to victory without a fight at Gigg Lane.
Bury are far from being League One’s best side, but a record of nine wins and just four losses is fairly solid home form. Perhaps more impressively, David Flitcroft’s men have notched 32 goals in 21 games. With Leon Clarke leading the line, they certainly have every chance of scoring in their penultimate home clash of the campaign.
Nonetheless, the visitors will be fancied to pick up a positive result, especially as they have a far greater incentive. The duo of Lee Gregory and Steve Morrison have certainly served them well thus far, and it would take a brave man to bet against the Lions increasing their tally of 35 away goals.
It won’t be easy pickings for a side that’s conceded 25 away from the Den. We think Bury will score, but we just can’t see them winning. The smart money has to be on goals.

Wimbledon v Leyton Orient
In League Two, it looks as though AFC Wimbledon will hold on to a top seven finish to gain qualification to the play-offs, which is thanks largely to a four-game winning streak at just the right time. Nonetheless, Neal Ardley’s men still have some work to do, starting with a big performance against Leyton Orient.
Unfortunately for the visitors, even a change of manager hasn’t been able to resurrect their hopes of promotion and they are destined to miss out thanks to a late slump. Nevertheless, Andy Hessenthaler’s men will be hoping to finish the season in style and will be eager to increase their tally of 26 on the road. If they can unleash star man Jay Simpson, they should find the target at least once.
The Dons will still be fancied to win this contest, though, not least thanks to the firepower of Adebayo Akinfenwa, Lyle Taylor and Adebayo Azeez. Wimbledon have scored 28 home goals already and should be confident against a poor Os side. Having said that, they have conceded
