Football Tips // BTTS // 07.11.15



Horrible week last week with only two from the four selections coming home. Derby V Rotherham was a write off with Derby controlling the game from the off and Rotherham never seeming to get into it. How on earth Sheffield United couldn’t equalise against Crewe I will never know. Still onwards and upwards! Seven selections this week, at the bottom of the page you will find my recommended Multiples for the selections.

‘At A Glance’

Leicester V Watford @ 3/4
Fulham V Birmingham @ 13/19
Hull V Middlesbrough @ 7/6
Motherwell V Inverness @ 21/20
Rotherham V Ipswich @ 4/5
Sunderland V Southampton @ 19/20
Norwich V Swansea @ 10/13

Leicester V Watford @ 3/4 (15:00 KO, Barclays Premier League)

Watford have only scored in six of 11 games which isn’t great for this market. What’s worth noting though is they had a particular dry spell at the beginning of the season, they have started to find goals in recent matches. Throughout October they only failed to score in one match against Arsenal which is forgivable. Leicester scoring seems to be a given as Watford have conceded in six games and Leicester have scored in every Premier League outing this season. Watford’s low score count becomes a little less worrying when you take into account the fact Leicester have only kept one clean sheet in all competitions. Four of the last five meetings have finished BTTS.

Fulham V Birmingham @ 13/19 (15:00 KO, English Championship)

As mentioned in previous post’s I dont seem to do to well with teams in Birmingham! but this one looks a pretty solid selection. Fulham have scored in 13 of their 15 games this season and they have scored the most goals in the championship this year. To compliment this Birmingham have only kept five clean sheets – so Fulham scoring doesn’t seem like something we need to worry about. For all of Fulham’s goal scoring power they have only kept two clean sheets this term And Birmingham have managed to score in 10 games. Birmingham are on an unwanted run of three games without a goal – a title they will be desperate to get rid of and with Fulham’s dodgey defence can definitely do that today.

Hull V Middlesbrough @ 7/6 (15:00 KO, English Championship)

Difficult one this one 1st V 4th with only a point between them, two strong sides who are difficult to break down and both teams score regularly. It’s either cricket scores or a 0-0!. Hull have managed to score in 14 of their 15 games this season the only failure coming away at Brighton who are terribly difficult to break down at home, Middlesbrough have scored in 10 games so far this year – which for them is far from prolific but in those 10 games they have managed to rack up 24 goals ( one more than Hull). Middlesbrough have kept seven clean sheets, and have only conceded a total eight goals. Put this along side Hull’s eight clean sheets and eight goals conceded, and you have two teams who are defensively very strong. This is a lot like the Reading V Brighton selection I gave last week (which finished 1-1), I think for two teams who are this strong when it comes to scoring goals has always got to be backed when the odds are above Evens.

Motherwell V Inverness @ 21/20 (15:00 KO, Scottish Premiership)

Motherwell currently sit 10th one place behind Inverness but level on points. Teams who dont score massive amounts of goals but have suspect defences. Motherwell have scored in nine of their 13 games this year and conceded in 10, Inverness have scored in eight and conceded in 11. The goal scoring record isn’t something that will fill you with confidence when looking for BTTS selections, but with such poor defensive records its definitely possible they will conceded at least a goal a game. The sides have a combined ‘Goals against’ of 31 in 13 games and combined ‘Goals for’ of 22. Above Evens on teams that conceded for fun certainly isn’t to be sniffed at.

Rotherham V Ipswich @ 4/5 (15:00 KO, English Championship)

Rotherham are bottom of the table with nine points, although results leaving them at the foot Rotherham do score goals having scored 12 from 15 games. Rotherham are also prone to conceded a fair few as well having only kept two clean sheets this season. Ipswich have scored in 11 games and conceded in 10. It’s worth noting that the three games Rotherham failed to score were at; Preston, Middlesbrough and Derby – all sides who are far from bad at the back.

Sunderland V Southampton @ 19/20 (15:00 KO, Barclays Premiership)

Sunderland were scoring goals frequently at the beginning of the season scoring six in four games, then seemed to hit a dry spell and have now scored five in two games under big Sam. Southampton have scored in eight games from 11 this season and conceded in seven. Southampton scoring shouldn’t be a problem given their 18 goals and Sunderland only keeping one clean sheet all season. Sunderland would be the risk in this as they have only scored in seven games and Southampton keeping four clean sheets. Sunderland have still managed to score 13 goals in those seven games, Defoe and Fletcher both got on the score sheet last week which is positive for the club having both forwards scoring – they will be desperate to add to their tallies. As previously mentioned Sunderland have also scored over half of their season total before big Sam’s arrival in the last two matches.

Norwich V Swansea @ 10/13 (15:00 KO, Barclays Premiership)

Norwich are a great team for BTTS; scored in nine and conceded in all 11, Swansea have scored in seven and conceded in nine. Norwich scoring in nine and Swansea only keeping two clean sheets shows there is definitely room for Norwich to bag a goal, What is also very pleasing is the fact Norwich haven’t kept a single clean sheet this term. Swansea are a frustrating side – they create chances but don’t score an amount of goals to reflect this, it would seem though looking at Norwich’s defensive record if they are going to get goals to reward their creativity it will come in games like this. Worth noting in the last five meetings four have finished BTTS.

Selection’s In recommended multiples;

Straight treble of these 3 pays 5/1

Leicester V Watford @ 3/4
Norwich V Swansea @ 10/13
Motherwell V Inverness @ 21/20

Five Folds From Seven

Perm the five folds from the seven selections – (21 bets E.g. £1 x 21 total stake = £21)
This reduces the risk slightly as if only five from the seven selections wins bet will return resulting in a much smaller loss for the chance of six or seven winning bets providing profitable pay outs.

Six Folds From Seven

Same as Above except stake is X7. Reduces risk even more as stake is much lower, although room for only one losing selection. Six from Seven will pay a profit.

Seven Fold Accumulator pays at around 80/1.

Good Luck
