It’s FA Cup weekend and we’re looking to celebrate by netting a 5/1 BTTS treble at William Hill.
We’ve selected a mixture of Premier League, Football League and FA Cup encounters to produce this tempting treble and are hopeful of boosting our wallets just in time for Christmas.
Let’s pray for goals galore.
QPR V Burnley
Two of the Premier League’s bottom three collide in a must win showdown at Loftus Road and we’re anticipating a thrilling contest between these newly promoted rivals.
Whilst goals haven’t come easily for either side, their respective recent form in front of goal hasn’t been too bad. Whilst Burnley have scored in three straight league encounters, the Hoops boast at least two goals in each of their past five home fixtures.
However, Harry Redknapp’s side have kept just one clean sheet during that time and the Clarets will be looking to the in-form Danny Ings for inspiration in this vital clash. Last year’s corresponding Championship clash was a dramatic 3-3 draw and we could be set for an equally thrilling spectacle here.
Passions will run wild in the capital. Expect an explosive affair.

Blackpool V Birmingham City
Whilst Blackpool’s fate still looks certain, there is no doubt that the Tangerines have enjoyed some improvement under new boss Lee Clark and he’ll be extremely eager to see his team get another positive result as they face his old club Birmingham.
Relegation remains an inevitable outcome for the struggling hosts but they will be pleased to have scored in each of their past four Championship encounters and will be confident of extending that run against a leaky Blues defence. Clark knows all of Birmingham’s weaknesses and will look to exploit them throughout Saturday’s clash at Bloomfield Road.
However, Birmingham have also seen an increased level of performance since bringing in a new manager and Gary Rowett will be confident that his men can continue their resurgence against the rock-bottom Tangerines. The visitors are unbeaten in five since losing 8-0 to Bournemouth and should pick up points once again here.
Nevertheless, Blackpool are taking small steps forward and we expect them to find the target. Whether that’ll be enough to secure any points is another question altogether.

Accrington Stanley V Yeovil Town
Our final pick comes from a second round FA Cup tie between Accrington and Yeovil and it should be a fascinating contest as they each look to join the big boys in round three.
The visitors have endured a dreadful start to 2014/15 in League One but will hope to enjoy a better time as they take on their League Tow opponents. Gary Johnson has brought some amazing times to Huish Park over the years and a big third round match would at least produce some smiles in an otherwise awful season.
They have found the net more regularly on the road too, so the Glovers can be optimistic as the head to the Store First. However, Accrington are performing well under new boss John Still at home and will be equally confident after netting six in their last three games alone.
Unfortunately, though, the Reds are often let down by their vulnerable defence and may need more than one goal to progress. That should hopefully ignite an attack-minded contest full of goals.
