GREG was running up the white flag yesterday as White Star and Evian failed to produce the goods but he’s back with more goals bets for Saturday.
He has picked out four games from English League One and Two and will put reasoning later.
Greg’s Goal Getters
Chesterfield v Scunthorpe – over 2.5 match goals 17-20
Peterborough v Doncaster over 2.5 match goals 5-6
Morecambe v Leyton Orient – over 2.5 match goals 8-11
Wycombe v Carlisle – both teams to score 3-4
Morecambe v Leyton Orient
It’s been a fantastic October for the Lankashire side – 4 wins on the spin against some good opposition and 12 goals scored. Ten of their last 12 matches have seen over 3 or more goals scored and home fans have been treated 29 goals in the last 6 matches (15 for, 12 against).
They’ll fancy their chances of scoring today against an Orient side who have failed to keep a clean sheet in 8 (all 8 saw both teams score). They’ve managed to find the net in 6 of their 7 away matches and should do so again here against gung-ho Morecambe.
Given Morecambe’s ability to find the net and a lack of a clean sheet we should see goals here with both sides doing their bit.
Back over 2.5 Match goals 8-11 (Boylesports) (NAP)
Wycombe v Carlisle
While some clubs have prospered in October one who haven’t are Wycombe! Having suffered just one defeat in their opening 11 games they were flying high at the top end of the table, fast forward a few weeks and the wheels have fallen the title challenge.
Four defeats on the spin against average opposition and a 2-0 home defeat inflicted by basement boys Newport won’t have helped morale. They welcome a Carlisle side who have found the net in 8 of their 9 away matches this season with all 8 seeing both teams score. It’s a tough match to call in terms of finding a winner but both teams to score looks the best bet here with Wycombe improving on recent results.
Back Both Teams to Score to 3-4 (BetVictor) (NB)

Peterborough v Doncaster

Pays just under 3-1
