The BTTS & Win coupon certainly offers the chance to win big from a small stake, and our 70/1 treble on Saturday’s action will hopefully prove it once more.
As usual, we’re backing three teams to win their respective fixtures. We do need the three losing sides to score too. Nonetheless, with a potential payout of over £700 from a £10 stake on offer, it’s gotta be worth a punt.
Crystal Palace v Middlesbrough
Life at Selhurst Park hasn’t exactly gone to plan for Sam Allardyce thus far, but the survival specialist will surely inspire a home win sooner rather than later. Palace will feel that they’ve never had a better chance than Saturday’s home clash against Middlesbrough, although they certainly shouldn’t expect to have things all their own way.
The hosts are conceding at an alarming rate, especially in the final 10 minutes of each half, which would suggest a problem with fitness levels. That should leave the door open for Aitor Karanka’s visitors to score through Alvaro Negredo or Patrick Bamford.
Having said that, Boro have only notched eight away goals all season, so Palace may well restrict them to one. If they do, the attacking threats of Christian Benteke and co, may finally see the Eagles get the win needed to inspire a fight for survival.
It’s likely to be a fairly scrappy affair, which will probably suit Allardyce right now. We’re backing the hosts to sneak it, although Boro should find the target at some stage too.
BTTS & Palace Win @ 9/2
West Bromwich Albion v Bournemouth
After a fantastic start, Eddie Howe’s have endured an extended period of poor form and are now on a run of six games without a win, picking up just a single victory in their last 10 Premier League matches. In truth, it’s hard to see them turning things around as they head to an in-form West Brom.
The Cherries have shown that they can score goals, hitting at least two in four of their last seven. Moreover, with the goals being spread across the squad, there’s every chance that they will find the target against a Baggies side that is actually quite open for a Tony Pulis team.
Nevertheless, West Brom are enjoying a great season and will be looking to register an eighth win at the Hawthorns here. Having already scored 22 times in 12 matches here, they won’t be short of confidence against worst away defence.
The gulf in quality isn’t that big, but confidence could play a huge factor. Bournemouth concede two goals for every one they score on their travels. Do not be surprised if that trend continues at the weekend.
BTTS & Albion Win @ 10/3
Forest Green Rovers v Woking
The National League title looks increasingly unlikely for Forest Green thanks to their loss at Gateshead last weekend. Mark Cooper’s men will still fancy their chances of promotion this season, however, and will be looking to rebuild some momentum with a big win over Woking on Saturday.
Rovers have made the New Lawn a fortress in 2016-17, registering 30 goals and just one defeat in 16 games. Christian Doidge and his teammates will be licking their lips as they prepare to face the leaky Cardinals in this one too. After all, the visitors have conceded a massive 36 in just 20 matches on the road.
Garry Hill’s visitors do tend to score more often than not, though. Even a return of 20 goals hasn’t stopped them losing 11 of 16 away games, though, and the struggling Surrey side are likely to suffer another defensive battering in Gloucestershire.
BTTS losses have been a hallmark of Woking’s season so far. We have no reason to think that’ll change here.
