Fill Your Boots: Saturday BTTS tips and 10/1 boost
These football tips from the first Saturday of the Premier League season should deliver goals, and profit. The four-fold will be boosted to 10/1 on Friday afternoon.
Burnley v Southampton
Both of these sides ranked in the top six for BTTS ratio in the Premier League last season.
Burnley have only failed to score against Manchester City in their last 15 matches at Turf Moor, with BTTS landing in nine.
Southampton – who will feature a front three of Danny Ings, Che Adams and Nathan Redmond – scored and conceded in six of their final seven games last season.
Watford v Brighton
Watford scored and conceded in 11 of their last 14 matches at Vicarage Road last season, including in seven of their final eight.
They take on Brighton, who should be a more entertaining side under Graham Potter than they were under Chris Hughton.
New signing Neal Maupay was prolific in the Championship, while we can expect more from Florian Andone and Pascal Gross this season.
Middlesbrough v Brentford
Middlesbrough scored three goals (and missed a penalty) in their first game under Jonathan Woodgate – something they failed to do in their last 18 matches under Tony Pulis.
They can back up that 3-3 draw at Luton with another entertaining game against Brentford.
The Bees hit the woodwork three times in their 1-0 defeat to Birmingham last weekend, and have several new attacking signings to introduce.
Plymouth v Colchester
Plymouth won 3-0 at Crewe last weekend, suggesting they are going to be good fun to watch under Ryan Lowe this season.
They also conceded 16 shots in that game, including nine on target.
Colchester, who drew 1-1 with Port Vale last weekend, can take advantage.
