BTTS Tips: Side with these eight teams to score for Saturday's 3pm kick offs
Punters from across the nation look forward to the 3pm kick-offs on Saturday and there’s nothing better than landing an accumulator to start your weekend. With Saturday rapidly approaching we’ll talk you through our best picks for the BTTS market for Saturday and combine them all into a four-fold accumulator for you.
Both Teams To Score Tips
Brighton vs West Ham
Brighton and West Ham are both teams that just scream goals. Brighton have exceeded many people’s expectations this season and currently sit in eighth place in the Premier League with a couple of games in hand. Unfortunately for West Ham fans things aren’t so pretty on their side as they sit in 16th in the table and could still face a relegation battle.
Brighton are currently the third-best team in the Premier League to back for BTTS with the bet landing in 59% of their games this season, the only two better teams are Fulham and Man City who have played three more games than Brighton.
West Ham have had BTTS land in three of their last five games and have managed to score in all but one of their last five. If you combine that with Brighton's knack for scoring goals and their leaky defense, it looks a great play for the both teams to score market.
Middlesbrough vs Reading
It's been said many times now but Middleborough have been stunning ever since Michael Carrick has come in but they have not gone without their issues. Boro are one of the best teams in the Championship to back for both teams scoring and that's evident in their recent fixtures where BTTS has landed in four of their last five and they have conceded a goal in all of their last five games.
They come in as the heavy favourites for their game against Reading and that makes complete sense. On Reading's side, they have seen both teams score in three of their last five games and whilst it'll take some doing to topple Middlesbrough, they are definitely more than capable of getting a goal against a team that concedes on most of their occasions.
Plymouth vs Charlton
Whilst Charlton might not be on the most inspiring run at the moment, they have been good for the BTTS all season long and are currently the joint-best team in League Two to back for both teams scoring with 61% of their games seeing the bet land.
Plymouth are also right up there with 58 of their games finishing with both teams on the score sheet so the stats are suggesting this one should be a cracker. Plymouth comes in as the odds-on favourites but don't be surprised to see Charlton test them.
Charlton have won three of their last five away trips in League One and that shows they are always up for the occasion. Pair that with Plymouth's record of BTTS landing in four of their last five home games, this looks like a great bet for BTTS.
Tranmere vs Hartlepool
And finally, we're down to League Two where we have Hartlepool making the away trip to Tranmere. Hartlepool are currently the best team to back for BTTS in League Two with 59% of their games having the bet land.
When it comes to away games Hartlepool have seen both teams score in 10/17 of their away trips which is something that Rochdale will have to keep an eye out for. Rochdale are on a decent run at home at the moment but in the grand scheme of things they have only managed four wins in their 11 games at Prenton Park.
Hartlepool are slowly slipping into the relegation dogfight at the bottom of the table and a win here would be massive for them, expect them to give it their all against a team like Tranmere who are suspect to conceding a goal or two.
This finishes off our accumulator for the weekend and combining all these selections comes to 10.68/1 with William Hill. That can also be boosted to 11.86/1 with their acca freedom offer.
William Hill's Acca Freedom allows you to either boost your accumulator or insure your 5+ fold accumulators. If you pick the insurance route you can expect your stake back if one selection lets your accumulator down, if you go for the boost, you'll see your potential returns receive a small boost meaning a bit of extra cash in your pocket if it wins.
