Spurs and Newcastle tipped to get ball rolling in weekend BTTS acca
There is another exciting weekend of football ahead and we've picked out four matches across three divisions where we think both teams will score. This week's games include the live clash between Spurs v Newcastle, two matches from the Championship and in-form Coventry and Yeovil who go head to head in League One. A £10 fourfold with Bet365 will return just over £90.
Tottenham Hotspur v Newcastle United - Both teams to score @ odds of 8/11 with Bet365
Tottenham host Newcastle in the Premier League on Saturday lunchtime in the live early kick-off. Andre Villas Boas' side are on a nine game unbeaten run in the league and can go third with three points here. However, they face a Newcastle side revitalised since a glutton of Transfer Window signings and who beat Chelsea 3-2 last week.
Despite Spurs being light in the striking department with Jermain Defoe injured, Emmanuel Adebayor returns to duty after the African Cup of Nations and should lead the line for the home side, who won this fixture 5-0 last season.
Alan Pardew will be hoping his new signings can continue to score goals, finding the net five times in their last two starts in the league. The Toon's defence has been less reliable however, conceding at least one goal in 92% of their away matches in the league this season, so we're hoping for both teams to get on the score sheet here.
Tottenham at home: On average scoring 1.50 and conceding 1.00 goals
Newcastle away: On average scoring 1.33 goals and conceding 2.17 goals
Charlton Athletic v Birmingham City - Both teams to score @ odds of 4/5 with Bet365
It's fourteenth versus nineteenth at the Valley on Saturday as Charlton host Birmingham in the Championship. Chris Powell's side have been in good goalscoring form nettingat least once in each of their last seven matches. Things haven't been great at the back either for the Latics having conceded at least one goal in each of their last ten matches, which makes them good candidates in the both teams to score betting this week.
In fact, Charlton have conceded in 87% of their home matches this season, whilst Saturday's visitors have conceded at least one goal in each of their last 15 matches. Lee Clark's side have scored in 87% of their away matches this season so we're hoping they can keep up that kind of strike rate this weekend.
Charlton at home: On average scoring 1.33 and conceding 1.53 goals
Birmingham away: On average scoring 1.33 goals and conceding 1.60 goals
Bristol City v Nottingham Forest - Both teams to score @ odds of 8/11 with Bet365
The match between Bristol City and Nottingham Forest will have an extra bit of spice to it this weekend, as Sean O'Driscoll faces his old side not long after being sacked as Forest boss. The Robins form has improved under their new manager and Saturday's visitors to Ashton Gate will be looking for a similar improvement with new boss Billy Davies taking charge for a second spell at the club.
The home side conceded at least one goal in 93% of their home matches, whilsy Forest have conceded in each of their last eight matches. Bet365 go 8/11 that both teams will find the net on Saturday which looks a decent bet.
Bristol City at home: On average scoring 1.87 and conceding 2.27 goals
Notts Forest away: On average scoring 1.27 goals and conceding 1.53 goals
Coventry City v Yeovil Town - Both teams to score @ odds of 8/11 with Bet365.
Just one point seperates Coventry and Yeovil as both teams look to get into the play-off spots in League One. The pair are also in good form, with Yeovil having won their last five in the league and Coventry unbeaten in four. Mark Robbins Coventry side were beaten 3-0 midweek by Crewe in the JPT Northern Area final first leg, but created enough chances to win the game, so there's a chance they'll make up for that on Saturday.
Coventry have conceded at least one goal in 87% of their home matches, but have found the net in 93% of those games, making them ideal candidates in the both teams to score market. 69% of Yeovil Town's matches had over 2.5 goals scored in total and the Glovers have scored at least once in 86% of their away matches this season, so we're hoping for a goals galore at the Ricoh Arena.
Coventry at home: On average scoring 1.47 and conceding 1.20 goals
Yeovil away: On average scoring 1.71 goals and conceding 1.64 goals
