BTTS Tips: 12/1 four fold for Saturday's UK football
We've got a full raft of UK football this weekend and we've got match previews on site for all the Premier League games. We've asked our BTTS statto @OddsTerrier to scour the formbook and he's picked out a tasty four-fold for your gratification. It pays a little over 12/1 with bet365 including a 10% Accumulator Bonus.
Crystal Palace v Burnley
Our first game comes from the Premier League and we'll have a full preview and tips for this match on site from Friday. Both teams come into this one on the back of great results in midweek. Palace walloped woeful Watford 4-1 away, whilst Burnley won their second straight game, defeating Spurs 1-0 thanks to a Ben Mee goal. If Burnley can win a third straight here, they can move out of the relegation zone. For Palace, another three points could draw them firmly into mid-table security.
Palace rank fairly high for BTTS at Selhurst Park, with 62% (8 of 13) games ending that way and a combined 37 goals scored in 13 matches. I fully expect a Burnley with their tails up to score here and 50% of their Premier League away games have seen both teams net.
Birmingham City v Huddersfield Town
We move into the Championship and the form team in the division Huddersfield Town visit St Andrews to take on Birmingham City. Carlos Corberan's men are 14 games unbeaten in the league and are coming off impressive back-to-back wins over Fulham and Cardiff. City have won just one of their last seven but I've included them here as recently they've been a BTTS banker.
10 of Birmingham's last 11 games have seen BTTS land. The only loser was a 3-0 win at home versus Luton. I certainly don't see them shutting out a Terriers side that are on their best run at this level since 1919/20. 11 of Town's last 15 games have seen BTTS hit and I fancy it to happen again in the midlands.
Cardiff City v Fulham
Next up we have the two teams that Huddersfield beat last, playing each other at The Cardiff City Stadium. Fulham are the runaway leaders of the Championship and you'd expect them to win here. However, Cardiff are on a nice run under new boss Steve Morison, winning four of their last seven and being extremely unlucky last time out, leading 1-0 after 87 mins before conceding two late goals. This will be no pushover for the Cottagers and I'm banking on that for our acca.
City last failed to score back on the 15th January and possess some decent attacking threat in frontman Jordan Hugill and Man City loanee Tommy Doyle. Fulham need no introduction, They are easily the leading scorers in the league, primarily down to the goals of Serbian striker Aleksandar Mitrović who broke the Championship scoring record midweek, with his 32nd and 33rd goals. Marco Silva's men have had problems keeping a clean sheet of late though, with only two in their last eight matches. 57% of their away games have seen BTTS occur and they rank 2nd in the league overall for that metric.
Nottingham Forest v Bristol City
Our last match is again in the second tier and we're at the City Ground in Nottingham for a tie between Forest and Bristol City. Forest have seen their promotion charge stall of late, winning only one of their last four, and have dropped down to 10th spot. City are in mid-table mediocrity in the relatively safe spot of 16th.
Forest have seen 56% of their games at home see BTTS hit and a combined 41 goals scored in just 16 games. City are absolute freaks when it comes to BTTS and Over 2.5 goals. Their last 13 games in the Championship have seen both hit and 25 of 34 games (74%) this season have seen both teams score.
If you decide to take on any of these selections then good luck and gamble responsibly.
