Started doing a weekend four fold in this market last weekend, and was just 2 goals off! All games were BTTS, but two stayed under 2.5 unfortunately, but having watched both of the games I’m gutted as both sets of teams missed plenty of chances. I feel it is an excellent market that offers the combined value of both individual markets, when you see two sides that are similarly matched and should play out an exciting game. Anyway – here are my four tips for today – all games are 1500 KO in English leagues:
1. Bournemouth-Leicester BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 11/10 (Premier League)
Bournemouth broke their duck at the third attempt, in winning and scoring. A 4-3 win over West Ham should give them confidence, but still very weak in defence. Attacking wise excellent though, with Callum Wilson looking mightily dangerous. Leicester’s four games so far this season in League and Cup have all been BTTS, and 3 of the 4 have been + Over 2.5 too. They too have a good attack, the likes of Mahrez key this season for them. I’m seeing quite a high scoring game, hopefully at least 4 goals to make it safe!
2. Northampton-Accrington BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 6/4 (League Two)
Simply put – both of these two are offensively good, but defensively weak. Northampton conceded four to Newcastle in the week, and had the PL side take their chances it could have been 10. Accrington are favourites for relegation but actually are doing okay so far. Weirdly we are backing this when neither have had a game that matched this bet so far, but last season they played out 5-1 and 5-4 games which makes me think that there is something in this.
3. Grimsby-Lincoln BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 13/10 (National League)
I’ll let the stats do the work here – this season’s games so far for both teams:
Grimsby: 2-2, 1-2, 4-1, 4-1, 2-2
Lincoln: 1-3, 5-3, 1-1, 3-1, 1-1.
Last season’s two meetings: 3-1, 3-2 (Lincoln). Amazing value! Two high scoring teams who struggle defensively!
4. Bromley-Dover BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 6/5 (National League)
Much like the last game, these two are high scorers and both have a record this season when it comes to this sort of market:
Bromley: 2-2, 1-2, 1-4, 0-2, 3-1
Dover: 1-2, 2-1, 3-2, 1-1, 0-0
Dover were one of the surprises of last season’s Conference campaign, finishing a lot higher than anyone was expecting. Bromley were promoted after a very good season in the South division. Should have plenty of goals!
Again – this accumulator pays around the 25/1 mark – the only slightly questionable game is the League Two tie between Northampton and Accrington, although I’m sticking by my guns on it. If you want to make it really interesting, and you have a Bet 365 account – add in:
1. Sunderland Over 2.5 Cards @ 1/1
2. Watford Over 2.5 Cards @ 6/5
To turn the bet into a 120/1 accumulator, with all games at 3pm!
Best of luck!
