BTTS Tips: 6/1 four-fold for Sunday's football action
Nottingham Forest v Leicester City
First up we've got a FA Cup fourth round tie that we have a full match preview for on site. Just like Joshua Jones I'm expecting goals here; Leicester rank no.1 in the Premier League for BTTS at 70% and have seen 36 goals combined scored in just nine games on the road this season. Forest also rank in the top five in the Championship with 57% of their games ending in BTTS. The City Ground will be bouncing after their 3rd round defeat of Arsenal and I expect them to trouble Leicester here too.
Barcelona v Atlético Madrid
5th plays 4th in La Liga and this one screams BTTS and goals. Xavi has instilled a better mentality around the Barca squad and they are unbeaten in the last six. They need to start turning some of the draws into wins though, if they are to rise up into the Champions League spots. Diego Simeone has arrested a worrying run of three straight losses and has seven points from the last three. They will be looking for another big result here.
Onto the stats and Camp Nou has seen an average of three goals a game scored this season. Of those ten games, seven have seen BTTS land and they are up against another side who also score highly in that metric; Atleti have seen 37 goals scored in eleven games on the road and 82% of those games have ended in both teams bagging.
Borussia Dortmund v Bayer 04 Leverkusen
On to Germany and a Bundesliga clash between 2nd placed Dortmund and a Leverkusen side just one place below them in the table. Both sides are in good nick, Dortmund have won their last three and Leverkusen their last two games.
Westfalenstadion has seen an incredible 44 goals scored in just 10 games and 80% of those games have seen both teams scoring at least one goal. Leverkusen rank even higher on the road; nine of ten games have seen BTTS hit. This one is as close to a banker as we've seen whilst doing this article.
Sampdoria v Sassuolo
Lastly we arrive into Italy and a Serie A tie between relegation threatened Sampdoria and mid-table Sassuolo. Sampa have lost their last four straight and badly need a result here as they are only three points above the relegation zone.
Anyone who is a regular reader of this BTTS column will know, one of my favourite teams to pick is the Neroverdi. Every single one of their games on their travels this season has seen BTTS hit. 11 from 11. I Blucerchiati are no amateurs in that metric either; Stadio Luigi Ferraris has seen 41 goals combined in just 12 games and 83% of those games have ended in both teams netting.
Again, we love the look of this one.
If you like the look of these selections, then good luck and remember to gamble responsibly.
