Both teams to score betting tips for Sunday’s coupon and reasons for each BTTS selection from around world football on Sunday 12th March.
This Sunday’s BTTS 4-fold features three games from across Europe before ending in the MLS. The straight accumulator looks really well-priced at 17/2 with 888Sport. As always, though, keep your eyes on the cash out should we safely negotiate the first couple of games.
Our opening leg of this weekend’s both teams to score bet is the early starter in Holland as Willem II take on PEC Zwolle at 11:30am. Had this fixture been a bit earlier in the season I would have probably steered clear, however, the hosts have started scoring a few goals of late and have now seen both teams find the net in four of their last six. Opponents, Zwolle were my main incentive ahead of this match’s inclusion, though, as they have consistently churned out the BTTS results over the last couple of months with only one of their last eight failing to see both teams score. In addition to this, the visitors also have the second worst defensive record in the division and have only kept four clean sheets all season long. Based on those statistics, this game looks a safe pair of hands to get us off to a winning start.
The second selection for the BTTS tip features the Old Firm Derby between Celtic and Rangers at 12 Midday. These fixtures have a great track record for goals and cards over the years and both meetings this season have produced 5-1 and 2-1 victories for the hosts. Brendon Rodgers’ side are totally running away with the league this year in an embarrassingly one-sided Scottish Premiership. Celtic have only dropped points on the one occasion – 2-2 away to Inverness – and have scored an absolutely ridiculous 73 goals along the way. Most will have expected Rangers to put up more of a fight this campaign, as it stands, though, they will be lucky to finish any higher than the third place they currently occupy. From our bet’s perspective, though, ‘Gers have picked up seven BTTS results in their last eight games and have been really struggling to keep clean sheets, especially away from Ibrox. Therefore, let’s give this game the nod for another BTTS on our coupon.
The penultimate choice comes to us from Serie A as Fiorentina face-off against Cagliari at 14:00. The hosts played out a particularly underwhelming 0-0 last weekend which was all the more shocking considering they had seen over 2.5 goals in their previous ten matches as well as scoring in 17 of their last 19 games as well. Opponents, Cagliari are a great little side for this market as they love to have a go at teams but generally end up on the end of a right beating. The visitors currently have the second worst defensive record in the division but still sit comfortably just below mid-table which speaks volumes for their reliability for a BTTS result. The fixture between the two sides earlier in the season finished 3-5 to Fiorentina and I wouldn’t be too surprised if were treated to yet another high scoring game here.
Our anchor leg of the football tip sends us across the pond to the MLS as New York City FC host DC United at 18:00. We’re only a weekend into the new season in the USA so I can’t really say I have an awful lot of recent statistics I can throw your way ahead of this clash. However, these two sides did finish the last campaign with highly encouraging BTTS records in around the 70% mark and have also seen both teams find the net in four of their last five meetings in all competitions, including a 3-2 goal fest in the corresponding match at NYC last season. With that in mind, stick this game down as the last on the coupon.
