BTTS in Arsenal v Watford, Everton v Fulham and Walsall v Accrington Stanley: £10 at 16/5*
Arsenal got their first clean sheet of the season against Everton last week, but I don’t expect them to hold out against Watford, who have scored and conceded in each of their last five Premier League games.
Everton lost their 100 per cent BTTS record by failing to score against the Gunners, but there should be plenty of goals when they host a Fulham side that have scored in four of their last five and are yet to keep a clean sheet this season.
Walsall and Accrington have been involved in the joint-most BTTS games in League One, so it’s hard to see either side failing to get on the scoresheet on Saturday.
BTTS in Hoffenheim v RB Leipzig and Preston v West Brom, PSG and PSV to score over 1.5 goals: £10 at 16/5*
BTTS has landed in all of Hoffenheim’s matches and in four of Leipzig’s five Bundesliga outings.
Preston have produced three 2-2s and a 3-2 in their last four home games, and take on Championship top-scorers West Brom.
PSG have not failed to score over 1.5 goals in a game yet this season, while PSV have passed the same mark in all of their Eredevisie matches.
Burnley to beat Cardiff: £10 at 2/1*
Burnley won 4-0 last weekend – albeit at Turf Moor – while Cardiff suffered a 5-0 defeat at home to Manchester City.
Sean Dyche’s side don’t compare to the Premier League champions, obviously, but I fancy them to get the better of the Bluebirds, who don’t appear to be good enough to compete in the Premier League.
Everton, West Brom and Peterborough all to win or draw & BTTS: £10 at 9/1*
Right. Let’s stop messing about, shall we?
Three games that are heavily odds-on for BTTS where I’m also backing the favourite not to lose.
Everton’s defeat at the Emirates last weekend was their first match this season that hasn’t seen goals at both ends.
They looked lively before falling behind, though, and should get at least a point against Fulham, who have won just once this season despite scoring against every opponent other than Man City.
West Brom have won five and drawn two of their last eight games. Both teams have scored in six of those, including scorelines of 4-3, 7-1 and 4-2.
That pattern should continue away to Preston, whose last three games at Deepdale have seen two 2-2 draws and a 3-2 defeat.
Finally, Peterborough are top of League One with just a single clean sheet to their name.
Blackpool are on a decent run themselves, so should be good for a goal, but have only won one of their four away games so far.
Wolves, Sunderland, Lincoln and Forest Green all to win: £10 at 15/1*
Wolves have taken to the Premier League impressively and, at close to evens, I like them against a Southampton side that doesn’t win a lot.
In League One, I’m breaking the rules and backing Sunderland in the early kick-off. The Black Cats won 4-1 last weekend and should beat inconsistent Coventry.
Lincoln are top of League Two and should ease past Cheltenham, who haven’t won at home yet, while Forest Green are a great price against bottom-of-the-league Macclesfield.
