A great deal of BTTS possible this Saturday, along with my very first pick at Oakwell, where Barnsley welcome Charlton.
I have been impressed by Charlton this year – the pre-season favourites for relegation, Lee Bowyer’s guys have beaten Blackburn and Stoke 2-1 and 3-1 respectively, and also it is possible to be sure sides will now sit up and take note.
In Terms of the Tykes, they have not lost a home league match since March 2018, also while they perhaps should win on Saturday, I anticipate that the in-form Addicks to find the web. ??????????
Luton v West Brom could be great pleasure. Nine goals are scored at either finish in the Hatters’ opening two matches (together with both teams scoring in each), and that I don’t anticipate a lot of their matches will observe many shut-outs.
The Baggies also look like the ideal opponents for this one to land. Last season they scored plenty and surrendered lots, and judging by their exploits against Nottingham Forest and Millwall (both groups also scoring in each), I am very confident we could see a lot of goals.
Last year in League One, 61 percent of Burton’s matches saw both teams score, and I expect a similar storyline this time around. Though Rotherham are likely the team, Lincoln last weekend showed the Millers are generally rather susceptible at the trunk, particularly from balls into the box, and that should play into the Brewers’ handson.
We’ve observed both teams score at the past two meetings between the sides, and it seems likely both outfits will have joy before goal.
The final choice is Carlisle v Mansfield.
Mansfield look all around the place at the trunk. The Stags’ defence was excellent last year, but under John Dempster they have struggled, conceding two in each of their last 3 games.
Add to this the eight goals scored in the last two league matches between Carlisle–followed by the 3 objectives they stuck past Barnsley from the Carabao Cup–and you’ve got a excellent BTTS prospect.
Mansfield are still a fantastic side, so I believe they’ll score, but it’s tough to imagine they shut out the hosts.
