BTTS in Leicester v Everton and West Brom v Reading, Lincoln to beat Crewe: £10 at 3/1*
Having gone top of the table with a 16/5 shot last week, I’m happy to settle for another mid-range treble this weekend.
Everton drew consecutive away games 2-2 at the start of the season, before missing several chances in their 2-0 defeat at Arsenal.
BTTS should land at Leicester, who have scored and conceded in five of seven league games this season.
Both teams have scored in four of West Brom’s five home league games this season, while they have produced a 4-2 and 2-2 away from home in the last week.
Crewe have lost four and drawn one of five league away games this season, scoring just once. Lincoln should beat them to make it five wins from six at Sincil Bank in League Two.
BTTS in Peterborough v Barnsley, Watford v Bournemouth, Leicester v Everton and De Graafschap v Heerenveen: £10 at 5/1*
I’ve gone wild this week and added a fourth game to my usual BTTS treble.
League One has been the place to be for goals this season and Peterborough v Barnsley looks the pick of the games, with the two sides scoring a combined total of 50 goals so far.
Watford failed to score for the first time this season against Arsenal last weekend, but they created loads of chances and I fancy a high-scoring game when they host Bournemouth.
Leicester and Everton have each been involved in five BTTS games out of seven this season, so their meeting at the King Power is an obvious pick.
Finally, I’m heading back to the ever-reliable Eredivisie and backing another BTTS game for Heerenveen, who have scored and conceded in all seven of their games this season.
Burnley to beat Huddersfield: £10 at 11/10*
Burnley did the business for me at Cardiff last weekend, and I’m backing them to do so again at home to Huddersfield on Saturday.
Having beaten Bournemouth 4-0 last time out at Turf Moor, the Clarets should secure their third successive league win against David Wagner’s side, who are bottom of the table with two points from seven matches.
West Brom to win or draw & BTTS, Sheffield United and Salford City both to win, Manchester United to win & under 3.5 goals: £10 at 12/1*
West Brom have lost just one of their last 10 league games, with both teams scoring in eight.
That pattern is likely to continue at home to Reading, who have only won one of their last four away games despite scoring eight goals along the way.
Sheffield United have won three in a row and seven of their last nine in the league overall. They look a home banker against Hull, who have lost five of their last seven and three in a row away from home.
Salford have won six on the spin in the National League, conceding just one goal in the process. They’re a lovely price away to Dover, who are winless in 10 and have lost five of their seven home matches this season.
Finally, the evening kick-off looks about as predictable as they come.
Newcastle have lost five of their seven games this season, with three or fewer goals in all of them. Away to a scratchy Manchester United side, this has 1-0 or 2-0 written all over it, although I’m still going to allow myself that extra bit of breathing room.
Burnley, Sheffield United, Crawley and MK Dons all to win: £10 at 12/1*
Burnley have won their last two matches in the Premier League and, at odds against, I’ve got to back them against Huddersfield, who have just two points after seven games.
Sheffield United have won seven of their last nine league games and look a shoo-in at home to Hull, who have lost three consecutive away games.
In League Two, Cambridge have earned just one point in their last six matches. I can’t see them improving at Crawley, who have won three on the spin at the Broadfield Stadium.
MK Dons also look a banker at home to Cheltenham. Paul Tisdale’s side are unbeaten in their five league games at Stadium MK and should breeze past the Robins.
