BTTS Tips: Goals expected from these eight teams this Saturday
The midweek European madness has come to a close and now we get to turn our attention back to the domestic leagues.
As always, we've picked out four matches for BTTS for Saturday’s 3pm kick-offs and combined them all into a four-fold accumulator.
Both Teams To Score Tips
Brighton vs Fulham
Brighton vs Fulham is a game that should be an absolute cracker. Not many people would have believed you at the start of the season if you told them Brighton and Fulham will be playing each other in a battle for 6th position in the Premier League. Both teams have been exceptional this season and are no strangers to scoring goals.
Brighton have scored 39 goals this season and Fulham have scored 34 goals which bodes well for us backing BTTS. Fulham are currently the second-best team in the Premier League for both teams scoring in their games with Brighton being the best in the league. Brighton have had BTTS land in 13/21 and Fulham 13/23, which shows you again how similar these two teams are.
You can get 8/11 for both teams to find the back of the net in this one and that will kick things off for us this weekend.
Hull vs Preston
Preston have been very shaky recently and despite their decent start to the Championship season, they find themselves in 14th place and on the losing side of the majority of their games as of late. They make the tough trip to the MKM Stadium this weekend a place where Hull are unbeaten in five.
Despite this unbeaten run for Hull at home, they’ve had BTTS land in three of their last five home trips and whilst Preston may be struggling at the moment, they seem to find the back of the net more often than not. On the road, Preston have scored seven in their last five games which is massively helped by their 1-4 victory over Blackburn.
Given Preston’s decent away record and Hull’s decent home form, this could be a very close match in which we see both teams scoring.
Lincoln vs Portsmouth
Lincoln are undefeated in five games coming into this game against Portsmouth who sit 3 places above them in the League One table. Not only is Lincoln’s form decent coming into this, but they’re also still yet to lose at home this season which is exactly where this game is being held.
Though they may be undefeated at home, they’ve been plagued by a plethora of 1-1 results at the LNER Stadium, in fact, this exact scoreline has already happened seven times here this season.
9/14 of Lincoln’s games at home this season have featured both teams scoring with Portsmouth also boasting a 52% BTTS ratio in League One this campaign. This seems like a great play for the BTTS market.
Tranmere vs Mansfield
Tranmere have been fairly solid at home recently and are currently on a five-game unbeaten streak at Prenton Park and they’ll be hoping to carry on that form against Mansfield. Mansfield are the second best team to back in League Two when it comes to both teams scoring. 18/30 of their games has seen BTTS land which comes out at 60% of their games.
Mansfield come into this one as the favourites which makes sense considering they are seven places ahead of Tranmere in the table, but with Tranmere’s ability to score at home, this could be a tough one for Mansfield.
We’re expecting Tranmere to put up a decent effort here and even if they lose, they should have enough firepower to get a goal against Mansfield. I think it’s safe to say Mansfield will probably score this game so it’s all down to Tranmere which you would definitely fancy at home.
