Football BTTS Acca Tips: Back Burton in the both teams to score market
There’s now just under a quarter of the season remaining for most clubs in the Football League and there’s a full card of fixtures from the Championship, League’s One and Two this weekend. Here at BettingOdds.com we’re continuing our weekly series giving you our best both teams to score football tips.
This weekend’s fancies all kick-off at 3pm Saturday, so you can settle down and watch the scores come in while the weather continues to be miserable outside. We’d advise betting with bet365 who currently offer a soccer accumulator bonus of 10% on 4-fold multiples. In our case, this will take our bet from 11/1 to just over 12/1, should all eight sides find the back of the net.
BTTS: Birmingham City v Bristol City, Charlton v Shrewsbury, Crewe v Burton Albion, Carlisle v Bradford City
The first destination on the menu on Saturday afternoon is St Andrews, where Birmingham City face Bristol City. The hosts sit just three points above the drop zone in the Championship but will be nervously looking over their shoulders with sides below them such as Rotherham having as many as three games in hand over Aitor Karanka’s side. Saturday provides the Blues with a good chance to pick up much needed points against a Bristol City side who have suffered defeat in nine of their last eleven in all competitions.
53% of Birmingham’s home fixtures have featured both sides scoring this campaign, a percentage that is only higher for four sides in the division on home soil. The visitors have scored three goals in victories at both Swansea and Middlesbrough in their last two on the road, and despite a disappointing home defeat to QPR last weekend I think Bristol City will be much improved this Saturday.
Charlton take on Shrewsbury just south of the river in the capital on Saturday with the home side currently sitting a point outside the play-off spots in League One. I do think the Addicks will find a way to get the three points on Saturday but I don’t think it will be plain sailing. Over 2.5 goals has landed in Charlton’s last seven home games and their defence has been far from convincing, particularly on home turf, conceding at least two plus goals in nine of their last ten games at The Valley.
Shrewsbury find themselves nine points above the drop zone in 17th place and have been consideringly better on the road this season. Six of their ten victories have come away from home, including 1-0 victories against promotion hopefuls Hull, Lincoln and Doncaster. The Shrews won last time out at Rochdale and having scored in all of their last four away from Shropshire; I believe they will find the net against Charlton.
It’s no secret at BettingOdds.com that I’ve had a tendency to include both Crewe and Burton Albion in my both teams to score selections on a regular basis this season and with the two going to battle at Gresty Road this weekend, I can’t keep away.
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is performing nothing short of a miracle at Burton at the moment with seven wins from their last eight, in a run which has seen them climb from the bottom of the table to eighteenth place, six points from safety. Prior to this run, Burton had won just three of their 24 league games and with the form they have shown over recent weeks I’m happy to include them in this week's selections.
Crewe will fancy their chances on home soil and it’s a case of now or never if they are to make one final push towards the play-offs this season. Both teams to score has landed in eight of Crewe’s last ten games at home and with Burton having seen both teams to score occur in 21 of their 32 this season, I want BTTS onside here.
Rounding up the quartet on Saturday is Carlisle against Bradford City. The home side had serious hopes of promotion this season but a drastic decline in form has seen them go eight games with victory and slide to 13th in the table. Both teams have scored in their last six games and with promotion slipping away I think the emphasis will be to go for the win against Bradford.
The visitors have scored in all ten of their last league outings and sit a point above Carlisle in the standings. The Bantams have won seven of their last ten matches and with as many as five games in hand on certain sides above them it will be interesting to see how high they can finish should this form over the last few months continue. Only Colchester have seen more of their home fixtures feature BTTS than Carlisle this season and I fancy both sides to notch in Cumbria this weekend.
Best of luck to those following the selections, let’s hope no games are called off due to Covid-19 like with the Brentford v Rotherham game last week. As always, please gamble responsibly.
