It’s set to be another absorbing Saturday afternoon of football up and down the English football leagues and we’re hoping to capitalise with this 11/2 BTTS treble at BetVictor. If you’re interested in following us BetVictor are giving all new players a £25 free bet.
We’re backing six teams from England’s top five divisions to all find the target at some stage and are hopeful of netting a cool £55 profit in the process.
Fingers crossed these three games all live up to expectations.
Aston Villa V Swansea City
After months of waiting, Aston Villa are finally starting to find the target on a regular basis and that can only be down to the impact of new boss Tim Sherwood. We’re backing the Villains to enjoy another successful afternoon against Swansea.
The hosts had barely scored all season under predecessor Paul Lambert but Sherwood has installed a more attacking approach and that has been rewarded with vastly improved results. However, there is still plenty of work to be carried out at Villa Park and Garry Monk’s Swans should at least punish the home side with a goal.
Swansea have been one of the surprise packages this term, currently residing in the top half of the table. Admittedly, they have found life a little more difficult since Wilfried Bony’s January move to Manchester City, but the visitors should still fancy their chances against a team currently sitting seven places below them in 16th.
The Sherwood affect means that we think Villa will pick up another positive result. However, they might not have everything their own way and a dangerous Swansea can be equally optimistic ahead of this clash. Back both teams to score.

AFC Wimbledon V Portsmouth
After 37 games of the season, League Two clubs Wimbledon and Portsmouth are separated by goal difference alone. We’re expecting an equally close contest at Kingston Road but do think there will be goals at either end.
Wimbledon enter this clash on the back of three straight back-to-back winners whilst two of Portsmouth’s last three have also ended in that fashion. Andy Awford’s visitors might not be the most regular scorers on the road, but seven in the past three games is a promising statistic and Pompey will hope to take advantage of a Dons backline that has already shipped 22 at home.
However, Neil Ardley’s men have also notched 30 of their own en route to nine home wins this season. With powerful Adebayo Akinfenwa leading the line, the Dons will always fancy their chances of goals and there is no reason that they can’t add to the 27 away goals conceded by Portsmouth already.
Anything other than a win will end either side’s slim chances of promotion and therefore we’re expecting both of them to seek the win. Let’s hope that precipitates into goals.

Woking V Forest Green Rovers
It has been a topsy-turvy campaign for both Woking and Forest Green Rovers this season. We think Saturday’s battle at Kingsfield will be another rollercoaster ride – and, more importantly, one that is packed with goals.
Between them, the Conference rivals have posted an impressive 126 goals from 77 matches. Additionally, they’ve also both conceded an average of over one goal per game with their cumulative total currently standing at 86. Moreover, Forest Green’s 2-1 win in November’s reverse fixture would also suggest that this could be another entertaining affair.
Both sides have flirted with promotion throughout the course of 2014/15 but Garry Hill’s home side are now destined for a mid-table finish. Nonetheless, they’ll be eager to finish the season well over the coming weeks, particularly in front of their own supporters.
The visitors, however, are still genuine contenders and will go all out for the three points. Expect an explosive contest.
