Huddersfield v QPR – Both Teams To Score (1.73)

QPR are naturally an attack-minded team and always play to win, and Huddersfield will do the same playing at home and considering they’re battling relegation. Furthermore, games involving these two teams individually this season quite often produces goals, at least once in each net that is. Both Huddersfield and QPR have an identical both teams to score ratio of 20 of their 30 Championship games doing so. Also, it has paid out in seven of Huddersfield’s last ten and eight of QPR’s previous eleven overall.

Nottingham Forest v Leeds – Under 2.5 (1.84)

Whilst this is a match involving two very live promotion contenders in the Championship, a major reason for both respective successes of Nottingham Forest and Leeds United this season is a very strong defensive record. Forest are ranked third and Leeds second respectively in terms of conceding the fewest goals in Championship action so far. This game is also 20th versus 23rd in the Over 2.5 Goal Championship Table, and that fact alone suggests that we shouldn’t necessarily expect goals to flow at the City Ground on Saturday night.

Sunderland v Ipswich – Under 2.5 (1.76)

One game which definitely catches the eye on the League One weekend card is Sunderland versus Ipswich Town at the Stadium of Light. It is seventh against fourth, and both are very much in the heart of the promotion picture in the English third-tier. Ipswich have lost their last two in a row however, whilst it is one win in three for the Black Cats. Neither side are therefore in blistering form, nor in a very confident mood. Nevertheless, these are ranked 20th and 17th respectively on the Over 2.5 Goal League One Table, so there is a lot pointing towards a low-scoring, tight affair this weekend.

AFC Wimbledon v Fleetwood – Both Teams To Score and Over 2 Goals (2.38)

This is a game which really should be all about goals, goals and more goals. Well, at least a few of them! AFC Wimbledon against Fleetwood Town is a game which really is bet-builder material on Saturday, mainly because this is a game which should see two respective markets pay out. One is both teams to score, with both teams ranked in the top-three in the league within this category. This is also a top-seven encounter when it comes to the league over 2.5 goal tally, too. It makes perfect sense to go along with a bet-builder and then watch the goals flow.

Salford v Crawley – Both Teams To Score (1.70)

Naturally when Crawley Town involved in League Two action then a both teams to score recommendation is never too far away. Quite remarkably, only eight of their 31 league matches so far has failed to see this selection pay out. Claims of it being out once more on Saturday are enhanced knowing that Salford City are their opponents. Why? Well, they are ranked joint-fourth in the division in the BTTS category, so it would be a bit of a shock if we saw both teams produce a shut-out, or either attacking units fail to shine.

Northampton v Port Vale – Half Time Draw (2.10)

We love a half-time draw on this article and we love a Port Vale half-time draw even more! This is a selection which punters should have been cashing in on a regular basis this season, and we firmly expect this weekend for that to continue at an odds-against price. 22 of Vale’s 31 League Two clashes this season have been level after 45, and 12 of their 15 on the road. Northampton had a big

FA Cup replay at Derby County in midweek, so there may be caught a little flat-footed to begin with, so Vale will be happy to do their thing and keep things tight. If it ain’t broke…….
