PLENTY of people on the site like a punt on goals rather than on the outright markets so by popular demand I’ve teamed up with 888Sport to launch a new feature on the site where I’ll bring you some of the best bets available.
Watch out for regular competitions and the chance to win free bets with 888Sport by picking winning bets in their goals markets.
Some people do goals markets exclusively and sneer at win-draw-win bets. I like both to be honest but the advantage with goals markets is you don’t need to pick a result.
There are loads of different bets to look at – teams to score, teams to score 2+ or 3+, both teams to score, teams to score in both halves, etc.
My goals bets will focus on both teams to score and the teams to score two or more goals.
Most of my btts trebles recently have seen five out of six teams score – fine if you’re doing singles – and I’m hoping to make it six out of six this Saturday.
Let’s start with Hibs v Dumbarton. Four of the Sons’ last six matches have featured six goals – and they lost 6-3 to the Easter Road men last time out.
They’re the go-to side for goals and should net at Easter Road where they lost 3-2 in the League Cup earlier in the season although they drew 0-0 in the league.
Dougie Freedman’s Nottm Forest drew 4-4 in a remarkable game at Blackpool last week and there should be plenty of goals when they welcome Neil Lennon’s Bolton who lost 4-3 to Watford in an equally entertaining encounter.
Bolton’s last six have seen both score while five of Forest’s previous six have gone over 2.5 goals while it was 2-2 when they met earlier this season at the Reebok.
Complete the treble with Watford v Norwich. Alex Neil’s side have hit nine in three games with Watford netting 19 in six. Last time the sides met at Vicarage Road it was 2-2.
Note 888sport are doing an enhanced treble on Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Valencia today and that pays 7-4.
