IT was two out of three on teams to score 2+ again last weekend so I'm trying something different this Saturday.

I've decided to feature a particular coupon for the next couple of weeks and I'm starting with one I bet on regularly – and that's Paddy Power's Goal In Each Half.

For this bet to come up it requires a goal to be scored in the first half and second half by either team. Prices range from 2-5 to 11-10 and just like btts you can choose yes or no with the no prices being much bigger and ranging from 4-6 to 7-4.

Three correct pays yeses pays a minimum 2-1 and three nos will be no smaller than 7-2. English, Scottish and some European games are featured.

I'm going for two yeses and a no and kicking off with the no which is Cardiff v Nottingham Forest. For this to come up I'm assuming we want it to be 0-0 at half-time although it doesn't matter which half is scoreless.

Cardiff have been taking time to break down sides, especially at home, and their midweek clash with Barnsley was 0-0 at the interval.

Forest have become experts in scoring late goals, especially through sub Lewis McGugan, so 0-0 at half-time and 1-1 at full-time would be my call. No to those game pays 1-1.

My first yes is a short one featuring Arsenal v Norwich. The Gunners have hit 10 goals in their last four games, scoring in each half, and you have to fancy them to do so against the Canaries at the Emirates. This pays 1-2.

Complete the treble with Livingston v Hamilton which is a 4-7 chance. These First Division rivals have nothing to play for and are both scoring plenty of goals in a relaxed frame of mind.

Accies hit five against Airdrie in midweek and Livi netted three at Dumbarton last time out.

Let me know what you think of this market or if you have a coupon you'd like me to feature and I'll give it a look.

    Has anyone seen paddy power‘s new win and both to score coupon. It’ s in shops,but not online. You choose a match result and yes for bttts. Minimum of 20/1 for 3 correct. Seem likes some good odds- such as Birmingham at 9/1 tonight. So far,I fancy Aston Villa, Real Madrid, Barca and Celtic, possiblyPartick as well. Anyone got any thoughts on this?

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Robbie d, it’s go to see different coupons but remember what you are doing is essentially a sixfold. The Birmingham price looks good but if they win to nil you’d lose and that would be a sore one when you can get about 4-1 on a Birmingham win.

    hi danny,waiting4yr thoughts on the danish league.Thanks

  6. Danny 11 years ago

    Allan its usually the Dane that gives up tips on it but I do have a few thoughts on the game it is do or die time for Silkeborg they simply must win tonight if they are to succeed with the great escape last time at home they got a lucky 1-0 win over Copenhagen and I fancy them to do the business against an Aarhus side who have lost 4 of there last 5 on the road

    Silkeborg 2 Win @ 2.90 Betvictor
    Marvin Pourie anytime scorer @ 2.38 Ladbrokes

    Hamburg II to beat St Pauli II in Germany’s Regionalliga Nord looks overpriced at 11/4. Given the recent form, I’d say this looks like a good bet.

  10. Mike Jackson 11 years ago

    Sorry St Pauli II to beat Hamburg II @ 11/4 – wrong way round! :P

  11. 1plus2 11 years ago

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      1plus2, I’d have thought most major online bookies will have it.
