Fill Your Boots: 4 BTTS football tips for Saturday's matches
These matches look good value to produce goals at both ends on the opening Saturday of the new season. The four-fold is available at 9/1.
Fulham v Arsenal (12:30)
BTTS landed in four of Arsenal’s last five league games of last season, as well as in both the FA Cup final and Community Shield.
The Gunners conceded away at Brighton and Aston Villa after the restart, suggesting that their defensive frailties have not been solved under Mikel Arteta.
Fulham – who will field bully Aleksandar Mitrovic – should fancy their chances of a goal, too, having scored in all but two of their last 17 home matches of last term.
Bournemouth v Blackburn (15:00)
Bournemouth’s 5-3 victory in last week’s Betway Cup last week sums up the kind of team that they are likely to be this season.
Dominic Solanke, Arnaut Danjuma and David Brooks form an impressive frontline, but they look far weaker defensively without Nathan Ake.
Blackburn’s Adam Armstrong is set for a big season, and he can help BTTS land in the fifth match in six for Rovers.
Plymouth v Blackpool (15:00)
Plymouth were prolific at Adams Park last season, scoring at least twice in 11 of their last 16 home matches.
That trend is unlikely to stop in League One after Argyle signed Frank Nouble, George Cooper and Lewis Macleod, but they may struggle a little more defensively
Blackpool scored in eight of their last 10 games of last season, and have added lots of attacking firepower this summer.
Walsall v Grimsby (15:00)
Grimsby are bound to be an entertaining watch under Ian Holloway this season.
BTTS landed in eight of the Mariners’ last 11 matches under Holloway last term, with two of the three exceptions finishing 3-0.
Walsall look set to go well themselves, while their last three matches before last season was curtailed finished 3-2, 2-2 and 3-1.
