BTTS Tips: 13/1 four-fold for Saturday's UK football
There are a large number of fixtures across the UK this weekend and we've asked our BTTS guy @OddsTerrier to scour the markets and pick out a Both Teams to Score acca for you. He's selected four games from across England where he thinks the selection will land. The four-fold pays a boosted 13/1 with bet365 utilising their famous Soccer Accumulator Bonus which has increased the odds by 10%.
Peterborough United v QPR
First up we've got an FA Cup Fourth Round tie between two Championship sides which makes it easy to compare statistics. 4th placed QPR face a Peterborough side struggling badly down in 22nd spot. This should be a comfortable win for Rangers but they have been extremely leaky away from home; conceding 20 goals in just 13 games. An astounding 11 of their 13 games on the road have seen BTTS hit and I think it's got a fair chance here today. Posh have seen 32 goals in total scored at London Road and 54% of their home games have seen both teams netting.
Ipswich Town v Gillingham
Next up we have a game in League One between promotion chasing Ipswich and a Gillingham side that are only one spot off the bottom of the league. The Gills finally appointed a new manager in Neil Harris last week and immediately got some reward with a 1-0 win over Crewe - their first win since October! Town have also changed their manager this season, when they brought in Kieran McKenna from Manchester United and its paid immediate rewards, winning four of their last six.
One thing The Tractor Boys have struggled with is keeping clean sheets. 10 of 14 games (71%) at Portman Road this season have seen BTTS land and there have been 44 goals scored in that period. Gillingham have a fairly decent away BTTS record too, 64% of their road games have seen it occur.
Swindon Town v Exeter City
We move down into League two for a game between two teams on the fringes of the playoff places. Swindon in 7th are only one place and two points above their promotion rivals Exeter. Both teams are in similar form, winning two of their last six and will be hoping for a win here to move into that last play off spot.
Town have been a punters favourite on BTTS coupons this season and rightly so - 20 of their 27 games (74%) have ended that way. That falls slightly to 69% at home but still rank 4th highest in the division. Another team that rank highly are The Grecians; Eight of their 13 games (62%) on their travels have ended without a clean sheet for either side.
This one looks a very likely selection.
Livingston v Aberdeen
Our last selection is north of the border in the Scottish Premiership. 8th placed Livingston host 6th place Aberdeen in a mid-table clash that should provide goals. Livi have scored in five of their last six and 55% of their games at the Almondvale Stadium have seen BTTS happen. The Dons lead the league in away BTTS rank; seven of their 12 games away from Pittodrie have ended in BTTS.
As always please enjoy the football this weekend and remember to gamble responsibly.
