Fulham v Crystal Palace –
Only QPR were involved in more BTTS matches than Fulham in the Championship last season, and that trend is likely to continue now that they are a Premier League club.
Slavisa Jokanovic’s excellent attack scored in all of their last 24 matches of the league season proper, with the signing of Andre Schurrle – who will be available for this game – improving them further.
However, having kept hold of a frontline that scored 21 goals in its last 10 matches of last term, Crystal Palace should breach the Cottagers’ defence, which will not feature new signing Alfie Mawson, or either of last season’s centre-back partnership Denis Odoi and Tim Ream.
Stoke v Brentford –
Brentford’s 5-1 battering of Rotherham last weekend was the perfect example of why they will regularly be a good BTTS bet this season.
Dean Smith’s side are relentless in attack, having scored in 10 of its last 11 league matches, but still concede careless goals.
Stoke scored at Leeds last week, despite playing poorly, and have enough individual ability to take advantage at least once.
Bradford v Barnsley –
Two strong attacking sides meet at Valley Parade, in a game that could see many more than the required one goal each.
Jack Payne reinforced his reputation as one of League One’s best players with Bradford’s winner at Shrewsbury last week, and he can punish a Barnsley defence that conceded 15 goals in its last six away matches of last season.
But after putting four past Oxford last weekend, it is clear that the Tykes have a formidable League One attack that should rarely fail to score this term.
Rochdale v Peterborough –
Peterborough always produce attacking teams, and last week’s opening 2-1 victory over Bristol Rovers suggests that this summer’s huge turnover has resulted in the same.
A trip to Rochdale, who won 2-1 at Burton last weekend, should produce plenty of goals.
Dale scored in six of their last seven matches at Spotland last season, producing 3-1, 3-3 and 1-4 scorelines.
