Both Teams to Score Tips
Shanghai SIPG vs Tianjin Quanjia
This is the first time I have included a match from the Chinese Super League in any of my football betting tips, but having sized-up the division of the last couple of months, a few of the sides are certainly worth monitoring in the BTTS market. One of those are Shanghai SIPG who are currently placed second in the league, only a point behind leaders Guangzhou Evergrande. The hosts are currently the highest ranked side in the BTTS charts in China with a highly encouraging 74% of their matches finishing with both teams making it onto the scoresheet. Considering SIPG have the likes of Hulk, Oscar and Eleksen in their ranks, they are clearly never going to struggle for goals. However, they have only managed to keep one clean sheet in their last ten matches and head into Sunday knowing they are facing the league’s in-form side in the shape of Tianjin Quanjia. With that in mind, let’s get the ball rolling with our BTTS tips right here.
The second selection on the both teams to score predcitions Sunday takes us to the Community Shield at Wembley as Arsenal face-off against Chelsea at 14:00. This clash sees a repeat of last season’s FA Cup final where Arsene Wenger’s men edged out the Champions by two goals to one. Both sides have been busy in the transfer market over the summer, so it seems highly likely that we will see the likes of Alexandre Lacazette and Alvaro Morata making their respective debuts, with both of whom looking to improve on their impressive goal tallies of 22 and 29 strikes from last year. Considering the match is effectively a friendly, we could well see a much more open game that we would generally expect to see in the Premier League, therefore, back this to end with both teams finding the net.
Marseille vs Dijon
We’re off to France for the penultimate BTTS choice as Marseille take on Dijon at 20:00. Ligue 1 was a real graveyard for the BTTS results last year, so I do head into this particular leg with a little trepidation. The hosts certainly underachieved last season with their fifth placed finish, but will be surely improve this time around following the recent signings of Dimitri Payet and Valere Germain. The latter was a real unsung hero in Monaco’s title-winning side last term and actually scored a hat-trick in his first competitive start for Marseille in the Europa League last week as well. Opponents, Dijon avoided relegation by the skin of their teeth last season but did finish the 2016/17 campaign with the highest strike-rate for BTTS results away from home at 68%. In addition to this, the pair also played out a BTTS outcome in both of their clashes last year. With that being said, let’s give this fixture the nod this Sunday.
Portland Timbers v LA Galaxy
Our anchor leg for this weekend’s football tips takes us across the pond to the MLS as the Portland Timbers take on LA Galaxy at 21:00. The hosts in this one are the highest ranked side in the MLS BTTS charts this season with 74% of their matches this year finishing with both teams finding the net. The Timbers have now chalked up eight straight BTTS results over the last couple of months and also sit in the top five and bottom five sides in the league for their goals scored and conceded. From a BTTS perspective, these are terrific statistics. Opponents, LA Galaxy can’t quite compete with those numbers but do themselves sit in the top six in the MLS for BTTS results and have also registered seven goals in the last three away games as well. Based on all those facts, this match looks a safe pair of hands to steer our bet home.
BTTS ODDS – 7.29/1 with bet365.
