Saturday BTTS Accumulator
Crewe v Gillingham
With Gillingham going well in 3rd and Crewe suffering down in last place, this may well turn into a formality for the high flying Gills; however, that doesn’t mean there won’t be goals at both ends. Despite struggling for results Crewe have shown on several occasions that they are capable of scoring goals, and in fact, the home side have scored in each of their last five. They’ve also conceded in every one of those games. Likewise, Gillingham have also scored in each of their last five games, and have conceded in four of them. BTTS looks on the cards.
Burnley v Bolton
Bolton are another team struggling for wins, but keep scoring goals nonetheless. Having scored eight goals in their last five games, you couldn’t rule them out in this one. Burnley on the other hand are going reasonably well in the league and have managed to score in each of their last five games in front of a home crowd. They’ve also conceded in four of those. Being at home Burnley are likely to dictate things here and given the way things have gone so far you’d expect them to score. This could play into the hands of Bolton who certainly shouldn’t be without chances on the counter and it wouldn’t be a surprise if they found the net themselves.
Oldham v Sheffield United
In similar fashion to the games above, Sheffield United, who are going well in 6th place, take on 21st placed Oldham. Despite being only three places from the bottom of the table Oldham haven’t found it difficult to score goals, they’ve found it difficult to keep from letting them in. They’ve scored six and conceded 13 in their last five home games, each ending in a BTTS result. This bodes well for the visitors who shouldn’t find it too hard to score here, and in truth they probably should win. Although it wouldn’t be a surprise if they were to concede, given the fact they’ve let in five goals in their last three matches.
Middlesbrough v Fulham
Both these sides are among the division’s highest scorers having netted 17 goals each in their first ten games. Middlesbrough have scored in each of their last four games at home, finding the net 11 times in total. Perhaps less appealingly they’ve only conceded two in their last five. However, they face a Fulham side who have looked very strong going forward, and having scored eight goals in their last four away matches you’d fancy them to really test Middlesbrough’s defensive resolve. Given the attacking prowess of these two it would be a bit disappointing if they failed to score at least once each.
Coventry v Blackpool
Having won four out of their last five home games, Coventry are team in good form. In those five games they’ve scored 11 goals and conceded four. Blackpool have also hit form themselves recently and following three straight wins are unbeaten in October. The visitors aren’t exactly the most free-scoring of sides; however, playing against a team who will certainly look to dominate the game, counter attacking opportunities could arise. Coventry really should be scoring in this one, but at the same time an away goal isn’t out of the question. BTTS looks a good bet.
