Brentford v Wigan, Bristol City v Sheffield United, Peterborough v Portsmouth and Swindon v Bury all BTTS: £10 at 7/1*
I’m putting my money where my mouth is by backing my Fill Your Boots Saturday BTTS boost.
Of the teams playing in the Championship on Saturday, only Leeds have scored more goals than Brentford, Wigan, Bristol City and Sheffield United.
Both teams have scored in five of Peterborough’s last six, including a 3-3 and 2-3 in their last two.
Swindon have scored and conceded in all of their games bar a 1-0 win over lowly Morecambe, while Bury have scored nine in three.
Newcastle v Arsenal, Fleetwood v Accrington Stanley and Peterborough v Portsmouth all BTTS: £10 at 100/30*
After landing a BTTS treble last week I’m going big on goals again on Saturday.
Arsenal conceded twice away at Cardiff last time out so it’s hard to see them keeping a clean sheet at St James’ Park. The Gunners are always worth backing to score as well, so BTTS should be a safe bet.
Fleetwood have scored in five of their last six matches, and there have been goals at both ends in each of Accrington’s last six League One games.
Peterborough beat Southend 3-2 last time out and are the division’s highest scorers, while Portsmouth have bagged 13 goals in seven games, failing to find the net on just one occasion.
Manchester City to win and both teams to score: £10 at
City should win, but they have conceded in each of their last three matches, including home wins over Huddersfield and Newcastle.
Fulham have scored seven in their last three league outings, and I think they’ll net again here.
Manchester City to win and over 3.5 goals, AFC Fylde, Salford City and Harrogate Town all to win: £10 at 13/1*
I was three out of three in the National League last week, so am staying there in search of that elusive first win.
Maidstone have lost five in a row, failing to score in the last three. I think they’ll get rolled over by Harrogate, who have won six of their last seven and scored 10 goals during the last fortnight alone.
Salford are unbeaten in seven and look remarkable value away to a Bromley, who have been woeful of late.
AFC Fylde have also only lost once this season, and look a banker at home to an Aldershot side that have lost all five of their away games so far.
Call me greedy, but I’m going to bump up the odds with a Premier League tip on top.
There have been four goals in both of Fulham’s away games this season, and I don’t see that pattern changing at the Etihad, where they’ll surely be on the end of a defeat.
Brentford v Wigan and Peterborough v Portsmouth both BTTS and Crawley and MK Dons both to win: £10 at 8/1*
Brentford and Wigan are the third- and fourth-highest scorers respectively in the Championship, so should deliver some goals.
Like Jack and Adam, I’m also piling in on BTTS in Peterborough v Portsmouth.
Crawley have won three on the spin and should beat a Morecambe side that have lost eight out of nine in all competitions this season.
MK Dons are unbeaten in five matches at home and have won two out of three in the league. At close to evens, they’re worth backing to beat Forest Green.
