The BTTS Coupon – 12th April
With teams fighting for points in all four divisions, this weekend’s football should serve up a treat and our weekly BTTS treble returns a decent £42 from just a £10 stake with Paddy Power.
Goals will be expected in many of the day’s matches, and here are six teams that we are tipping to all find the target at some stage.
West Brom V Tottenham Hotspur
At the Hawthorns, the Baggies are looking to build on last weekend’s win at Carrow Road with a similarly positive result against a Spurs side who have struggled on the road.
However, the Midlands club are still searching for a first league win under manage Pepe Mel themselves and are unlikely to keep out Tim Sherwood’s men – who hit 5 against Sunderland on Monday.
Despite no home win since January 1st, West Brom have at least found the target on a regular basis. Five of their last seven at the Hawthorns have ended in score draws, four of them coming via a 1-1 scoreline.
Only Manchester United and Norwich have stopped them from scoring in 14 home league matches and they’ll be confident of extending that run against Tottenham. The visitors haven’t won any of their last five on the road in all competitions.
December’s reverse fixture ended 1-1, we could see another score draw here.
Yeovil Town V AFC Bournemouth
In the Championship, Yeovil are hanging onto their survival hopes by a thread and must go for goals against an in-form Bournemouth.
The Glovers have never been relegated as a Football League team, but that looks set to end this season as they currently sit rock-bottom of the Championship table. Gary Johnson’s men have no option but to attack as they fight to void the drop.
On the other hand, Bournemouth are going very strong and could yet make a surprise late push for the play-offs. Eddie Howe’s men have won five on the spin, registering 14 goals in the process, and trail sixth-placed Reading by just two points.
The Cherries have scored 58, but conceded 57 this season; Yeovil have a goal difference of minus 15, after shipping 66. Only Millwall have allowed more goals than the Glovers and so the visitors will be extremely confident.
IF the hosts score, this bet almost certainly wins.
Peterborough United V Coventry City
Throughout the season these two have ben included in thousands of BTTS slips across the country and there is nothing to suggest there won’t be goals when they collide at London Road.
Coventry, who have both scored and conceded 71 times this term, won the reverse fixture 4-2 and it should be another case of attackers being on top at Peterborough. Posh themselves have notched an impressive 63, whilst shipping 54, and additionally boast the league’s top scorer in Britt Assombalonga.
Darren Ferguson’s men have kept clean sheets in each of their last two home encounters but that shouldn’t detract from Coventry’s ability to break down the Posh defence. The Sky Blues might not be in the best form currently, but they’ve still found the net in eight of their last 10 outings and should be confident of doing so again here.
Play-off chasing Peterborough should claim the victory, but Coventry will be expected to score.
