Three from Four again last week! frustratingly pleasing? Is that a thing? it is now. That’s two weeks on the bounce where it’s been one goal to let down a full house, Still cant complain too much as Sunderland were always a risky bet. After two weeks of three from four what’s the logical thing to do? only make three selections of course. This isn’t really the reason behind the treble but it is just a really difficult week to find value in BTTS.
Anyway my selections for Saturday!
‘At a Glance’
Crystal Palace vs West Brom @ 21/20
Brighton vs Cardiff @ 23/20
Portsmouth vs Yeovil @ 11/10
Crystal Palace vs West Brom @ 21/20 (12:45 KO, Barclays Premier League)
Crystal Palace have a BTTS record from seven games of 57% (four from seven) Whilst West Brom have only had 29% (two from seven). Crystal Palace have managed to score in five of their opening seven games, only unable to find the net against Manchester City And Tottenham – two defences who at the time of playing were very very strong. Palace have conceded in six from seven, scoring a total of nine goals and conceding a total eight. West Brom have scored in four from seven games and conceded in three from seven. West Brom have scored a total of six goals and conceded nine. Although West Brom have only conceded in three games its worth noting, they have managed to concede nine goals in those three – so there is definitely an opportunity for goals if the opposition are a strong attacking outfit.
Brighton vs Cardiff @ 23/20 (15:00 KO, English Championship)
Brighton have a BTTS record thus far this season of 56% (five from nine) and Cardiff have a record of 67% (six from nine). Brighton have managed to find the net in eight from nine games, scoring a total of 13 goals and have conceded in five from nine letting in a total of seven. Cardiff have also scored in eight from nine games, scoring a total of 13 goals and have conceded in seven from nine letting in a total 10. Everyone of Cardiff’s four away games have finished BTTS.
Portsmouth vs Yeovil @ 11/10 (15:00 KO, English League 2)
Portsmouth’s BTTS record in 10 games stands at 70% (seven from 10) And Yeovil’s record is 60% (six from 10). Portsmouth have scored in eight from 10 games, scoring 17 goals and have conceded in seven from 10 conceding a total 10. Yeovil Have scored in eight from 10 games, scoring a total 13 goals and Yeovil have conceded in nine from 10 games conceding a total 18. Yeovil’s record surprised me being third from bottom, I expected a poor goalscoring record which certainly isn’t the case – a good scoring record and poor results is only good for the BTTS market.
Obviously when Tipping only Evens and above the selections can be backed as singles or to be added to multiples across many markets, for those interested in the above as a treble its paying around 9/1.
Good luck as always.
