Fill Your Boots: Saturday BTTS tips and 9/1 boost
These football tips from the first Saturday of the EFL season should deliver goals, and profit. The four-fold has been boosted to 9/1.
Barnsley v Fulham (15:00)
Barnsley scored at least twice in 11 of their last 13 home matches in League One last season, with BTTS landing in all of the last four.
That run should continue, given that Fulham have failed to strengthen a defence that was comically poor in the Premier League.
With Anthony Knockaert, Ivan Cavaleiro and Aleksandar Mitrovic in attack, though, Scott Parker’s side can score themselves.
Peterborough v Fleetwood (15:00)
Peterborough scored in all of their last seven home games of last season, with BTTS landing in five of them.
Darren Ferguson has Ivan Toney and Matt Godden – who scored 41 goals between them last season – to call on upfront, as well as £1.3m signing Mo Eisa.
Fleetwood scored in eight of their last 10 away games of last season.
Crewe v Plymouth (15:00)
Crewe earned more points than any League Two team from Boxing Day onwards last season, finishing the season with 16 goals in their last five home games.
They take on Plymouth, whose manager Ryan Lowe was in charge of a Bury side that ranked second for BTTS percentage in League Two last term.
Argyle have signed several of Bury’s players, too, so should be an entertaining side.
Scunthorpe v Swindon (15:00)
Despite suffering relegation from League One, Scunthorpe scored in eight of their last 11 home games of last season.
Having added to their forward options considerably this summer, expect them to continue that sequence against Swindon.
The visitors scored and conceded in seven of their last 11 away matches of last term, including a 2-2 and 2-3 in the last three.
