Here is this Saturday’s instalment of my Private Facebook betting group’s attempt to get a nice little both teams to score accumulator up for Saturday. You can find my regular BTTS tip here
The guys all clash heads during the week and come up with their best picks for the site, each individually written.
Saturday’s bet looks a little something like this:
Brighton v Nottingham Forest Forest 3.00pm
By Liam Tolan
Both teams are having a successful year with both teams dreaming of reaching England’s top flight. Brighton have had mixed fortunes over the past few months having started the season with so much promise.
The Seagulls entertain an attacking Nottingham Forest side who last scored this many goals away from home when Pierre van Hooijdonk was cracking in 30 yard free kicks They scored in every away game this season but haven’t been as tight at the other end shipping a lot of goals in the process.
Blackpool v Blackburn Rovers 3.00pm
By Liam Tolan/Phil Entwistle
If ever you bet on a a game to finish a score draw this should be it. Blackpool have drawn their last 5 home games whilst still scoring in each.
They have only failed to score once at home this season. Blackburn are finding their feet again and will start to push for honours this season. They have scored at least one goals in each of their seven away games.
The last two encounters between these two teams was in the Premiership containing 7 goals.
Both teams are scoring and conceding plenty of goals as they battle for a spot in the play offs.
Blackpool have scored in all but one home game and more importantly they’ve scored 21 at home conceding 15.
Blackburn have only failed to score twice on the road scoring 19 and conceding 16.
Just the right ingredients for a BTTS.
Bristol City v Derby County 3.00pm
By Peter Te Rakau
21st Bristol host 10th Derby and going by recent stats I think goals and the punters will be the true winners on the day.
First off 11 of Bristol Cty’s last 12 home games have had BTTS, the only was where they failed to score against Charlton. 4 of Derby’s last 6 away games have been BTTS but they’ve conceded in every away game except at Nottingham Forest. With Bristol conceding in every competitive home game this year, I don’t see them keeping a clean sheet today.
Last year the 2 fixtures ended 1-1 in bristol and 2-1 in Derby with the hosts taking that out. Given Bristol’s real need to get a wriggle on for some competition points, gaps will be at the back and Derby will surely looking to capitalise on this.
Middlesbrough v Wolves 3.00pm
By Matt Litherland
Boro have scored in every home game this season and have kept only 3 clean sheets at home so far. There have also been over 2.5 goals in 4 of Boro’s last 5 home games as they like to attack but often leave themselves vulnerable.
Wolves on the other hand have failed to score twice on the road this season but their last 3 away games have seen both teams find the net. Wolves seem to have found their shooting boots recently and I’m confident that can continue today.
Neither of these teams like a draw so with all out attack from both sides, there should be goals at both ends!
