Fill your boots: 4 BTTS tips for the Boxing Day football
These games from the Premier League, League One, League Two and Coppa Italia promise goals, and - with our 8/1 Betway Boost - profit.
Gillingham v Oxford – (13.00)
Both teams have scored in Gillingham’s last three home matches, a sequence that should extend against Oxford.
Steve Lovell’s side netted four goals against Bristol Rovers in their most recent game at Priestfield, while the visitors have netted 14 goals in their last nine - including shipping seven to Oxford on Saturday.
A repeat of the U’s 2-1 win at Gillingham at the beginning of this month in the EFL Trophy would do the trick.
Watford v Leicester – (15.00)
Despite a troubling run of form, Watford’s goalscoring has not relented.
The Hornets have netted in seven of their last nine matches, and in all of their last four at Vicarage Road.
Marco Silva’s side have, however, conceded 13 goals in their last six matches – including four in their last home game against Huddersfield – so Leicester should extend their run of at least one goal in their last five away matches.
Wycombe v Newport – (15.00)
Wycombe have only failed to score in just one of their 11 league home matches this season, a run that is sure to extend against Newport.
The hosts have netted 10 goals in their last four outings at Adams Park, while their visitors have shipped 19 goals in their last 11 away games.
The Exiles have, though, scored in 19 of their last 21 games – with one of their failures away at second-place Notts County – so should fulfil their side of the bargain.
Lazio v Fiorentina – (20.00)
Both teams have scored in 76 per cent of Lazio’s matches this season – the most of any Serie A team – and there is no reason why that won’t translate into this Coppa Italia quarter-final.
The hosts conceded to second-tier Cittadella in the previous round of this competition, while Fiorentina overcame Sampdoria 3-2 at the same stage.
Considering that the visitors have only failed to score away at Inter, Juventus, and Napoli this season, there is little doubt that they will do their bit.
