Lots of BTTS potential this Saturday, with my first pick in Oakwell, in which Barnsley welcome Charlton.
I have been impressed with Charlton this year — that the pre-season favourites for relegation, Lee Bowyer’s guys have beaten Blackburn and Stoke 2-1 and 3-1 respectively, also it is possible to be sure sides will now sit up and take notice.
In Terms of the Tykesthey have not lost a home league match since March 2018, also while they maybe should triumph on Saturday, I expect the in-form Addicks to Get the net. ??????????
Luton v West Brom could be great fun. Nine goals have been scored at either end in the Hatters’ opening two games (together with both teams scoring in each), and that I don’t anticipate a lot of their matches will observe lots of shut-outs.
The Baggies also seem like the ideal opponents for you to land. Last year they scored plenty and conceded plenty, and judging by their exploits against Nottingham Forest and Millwall (both groups too scoring in each), I am very confident we can see lots of targets.
Last year in League One, 61 percent of Burton’s matches saw both teams score, and I expect a similar storyline this time around. Although Rotherham are likely the superior team, Lincoln final weekend revealed the Millers are generally quite susceptible at the back, particularly from balls into the box, and that should play to the Brewers’ hands.
We have observed both teams score at the past two meetings between the sides, and it appears likely both outfits have joy before goal.
The last pick is Carlisle v Mansfield.
Mansfield seem all around the place at the back. The Stags’ defence was fantastic last year, but underneath John Dempster they have fought, devoting twice in each of their past few games.
Add to the the eight goals scored in the last two league matches between Carlisle–followed closely by the 3 objectives they stuck beyond Barnsley in the Carabao Cup–and you have a really good BTTS potential.
Mansfield are still a good side, so I believe they’ll score, but it is hard to imagine they closed the hosts out.
