BTTS Tips: Side with these eight teams to score on Saturday
Last week's BTTS selections proved fruitful as all three tips landed in fairly convincing fashion. Of course with the previous success and a plethora of games going on this weekend, we'll be back to talk through four both teams to score picks ahead of the action.
- Bournemouth vs Leicester
- West Brom vs Luton
- Lincoln vs Charlton
- Bradford vs Stockport County
- BTTS Acca @ 8.9/1 - William Hill
Up first is a game from the Premier League which is Bournemouth vs Leicester. Here we’ve got the Premier League new boys against a Leicester outfit which are not looking great at all. The Foxes find themselves with four points from eight games this season which puts them 19th in the table just above Nottingham Forest thanks to goal difference. Bournemouth on the other hand have somewhat exceeded expectations recording two wins and three draws so far to put them in a respectable position of 13th.
When it comes to finding the back of the net both teams have managed to score six goals this season and have both leaked goals with Bournemouth conceding 19 and Leicester conceding 22. Leicester have actually managed to score in all four of their away trips this season in the league meaning they have a 100% BTTS record away from home so far, unfortunately for Bournemouth, they have had two 0-0 draws at home in their last two games which might not fill you with confidence but we think with these two teams leaking goals, we could be in for a bit of a thriller.
West Brom were a team who featured in last week's picks and it’s no surprise to see them back here after another game that resulted in both teams scoring. This time they host Luton who are currently on a four-game unbeaten run and are enjoying life in the Championship.
With West Brom’s recent 2-3 thriller against Swansea, they currently boast an 83% BTTS ratio in the Championship this season, the highest out of anyone in the league, a statistic that has most definitely contributed to their current position in the league which is 22nd. West Brom have conceded almost just as many as they have scored this season giving them a goal difference of -1 in the league despite scoring 17 goals in 12 games.
On top of this, Luton have now won three games on the bounce away from home scoring a total of six goals in three games. It’s clear Luton are a serious problem for West Brom this weekend and will most definitely be finding the back of the net against them, West Brom seem to always score in their games so I think this is the perfect pick for both teams scoring.
Up next is two teams right next to each other in the table, Lincoln and Charlton, two teams that have also seen BTTS in over 50% of their games this season.
Charlton are currently on a six-game run of having both teams score in their games. It’s obvious they’re confident in terms of scoring, but in their last six games, they have conceded every game and have actually conceded six in their last three games. Charlton also have the highest BTTS rate in the league with 82% of their games having both teams scoring.
Lincoln on the other hand have had BTTS land in 50% of their games this season and have conceded nine goals in their last five games. With them being the home team and the favourites coming into this match, you’d fancy them to at least score, and considering their opponents also seem to consistently score, we can definitely see both teams scoring in this game.
To finish off our accumulator for Saturday we take a trip to League Two where Bradford will be playing newly promoted Stockport County. Stockport have unfortunately disappointed big time this season. They came into the league as one of the bookmaker favourites to win the league and they currently find themselves down at 19th place.
Stockport have the current highest rate for both teams scoring in League Two. 73% of their games have resulted in both teams scoring, four of their last five games have also seen both teams score. As I’ve mentioned with a few teams on this weekend’s acca, this team is not shy of scoring goals, but they just can’t seem to keep them out of their own net. A lot of Stockport’s games have been fairly open and it looks like any team going into the game can take it, the same can be said for this one, I think that will ultimately result in both teams scoring this game.
That concludes our Saturday four-fold, it’s currently priced at around 8.93/1 with William Hill, all we can do is hope for another winner!
