Another disappointing week last week – which is definitely becoming a trend of late. Just a treble this week, the odds on BTTS and the BTTS + Over 2.5 goals can be found at the bottom. Praying for massive improvements in the coming weeks, its becoming increasingly frustrating and difficult to keep at this with so many 0-0’s cropping up in my selections. I can only apologise for what has been a very poor few months.
Ipswich vs Brentford @ 6/7 (15:00 KO, English Championship)
Ipswich have hit a baron spot recently failing to score in three of their last four matches, Their season total sits at 46 for and 44 against. Brentford have scored in three of their last five matches and conceded in four, Brentford have scored 54 goals all season and conceded 60. Ipswich low scoring form is of a concern but Brentford have conceded over half of their goals away from home keeping only three away clean sheets all season. Brentford for a team sat 14th score a considerable amount of goals only failing to score 5 times away from home all season. Brentford are second in the BTTS to score league with 59% of games finishing with at least a goal a piece. The last three meetings have ended 2-2, 1-1 and 2-4!
Crystal Palace vs Norwich @ 1/1 (15:00 KO, Barclays Premiership)
These two teams combined last weekend scored five goals and conceded four. Crystal Palace have scored 34 and conceded 42, Norwich have scored 35 and conceded 56. Crystal Palace have scored in four of their last five Premier League outings and conceded in five. Norwich have scored in three of five and conceded in the same amount. Crystal Palace have conceded more goals at home than in away matches whilst only scoring 16 goals on home soil. Norwich have scored a lowly 13 goals in away matches but they come up against a Palace side that have conceded in every one of their last six home fixtures. Ended 3-1 last time out late last year.
West Ham vs Arsenal @ 4/6 (12:45 KO, Barclays Premiership)
Two teams residing in the top six. West Ham have exceeded expectations this season and have scored a total 49 goals and conceded 37. Arsenal the way the Premier League has gone this year will definitely see this as an opportunity missed; they currently sit with 52 goals for and 30 goals against. West Ham have scored in all five of their previous Premier League fixtures and conceded in three, Arsenal’s record in the last five is identical. In home V away terms; West Ham have only failed to score at home on one occasion and have conceded 16 of their 37 goals at the Boleyn. Arsenal away from home have scored 29 of their 52 goals and conceded 20 of their 30 goals. 5 of the last 7 meets have ended BTTS!
