Football is coming out of our ears at the moment… Pure bliss. The next round of Goals Galore is just around the corner which in turn gives us the chance to find our next winner. We didn’t quite pull it off on Boxing Day as a few teams really disappointed, but we didn’t have to wait long for the next instalment.
Here are my best BTTS picks for Saturday:

Norwich v Manchester City 3.00pm
Manchester City were humbled by Sunderland on Saturday, and I’m sure Roberto Mancini would’ve made his thoughts known on the ever increasing gap between rivals Manchester United.
City have a habit of biting back after a disappointing defeat, and I fully expect them to take out their frustrations on Norwich at Carrow Road, but don’t expect them to keep a clean sheet.
The Canaries have failed to score just twice at home this season, and City’s style of play entices counter attacks. Norwich have won 5 of their last 6 at home, including 1-0 wins over Arsenal and Manchester United in the last couple of months.
City will go to Norfolk all guns blazing, and I expect the visitors to win; my prediction 3-1 City. Goals Galore!
Bristol City v Peterborough 3.00pm
I’d imagine this game will be on every man and his dogs BTTS coupon today, and it will be a major shock if this one fails to produce plenty of goals.
Peterborough are playing like a completely different team recently; Taking maximum points in their last 3 games against Cardiff (2-1), Bolton (5-4) and Wolves (3-0)… All this after taking just 1 point form their previous 8 games!
Bristol City appear to be playing rugby when at Ashton Gate this season (6 of their 11 home games have contained 5 or more goals), and goals seem to flow effortlessly. 9 of the 11 games played at Ashton gate have seen both teams score, and Peterborough’s recent results suggest the next goal isn’t far away.
This match could be anything, but I’m certain both teams will find the net.
Nottingham Forest v Crystal Palace 3.00pm
Forest will be very pleased with their current form, and their 4-1 victory over Leeds at the weekend after going a goal down will have the confidence levels sky high for the visit of Crystal Palace.
The visitors are still ticking along nicely in 4th position in the league table, but they did taste a defeat at the hands of Cardiff on Saturday (1-2), the Eagles first defeat in 5 games.
All of the visitors last 4 games has seen both teams score, and with Forest in high spirits I’m expecting at least a goal a piece here.
For those that want to take a bit more of a risk, here are 4 more picks to make up a 7 fold at Betfred which pays £280 for a £10 stake!
- Burnley v Leicester
- Wolves v Ipswich
- MK Dons v Coventry
- Preston v Doncaster
