CAN I break the run of one game beating me? I hope so but the FA Cup ties don't really help my cause.

It's tough picking goals galore games from these ties simply because most of the ties feature teams from different leagues.

Two caught my eye, Norwich v Leicester and Everton v Blackpool, and I think I'll start with the match at Goodison Park.

Everton are notoriously low scorers but have netted in their last six and last week's 2-0 home win against Chelsea should have boosted confidence.

Boss Davie Moyes has the luxury of being able to hand new signing Nikica Jelavic a debut and Everton, who also beat Man City recently, will fancy their chances of making the last eight.

Blackpool have been in great form in the Championship, having climbed to fourth on the back of an eight-match unbeaten run. Ian Holloway's men have netted 27 goals on their travels so will be looking to attack the Toffees.

It was 5-3 to Everton in the Premier League last season and there could be plenty of goals this time round.

Now I'm moving on to the Championship and a clash between two decent outfits, Ipswich v Cardiff.

It was 2-2 when the sides met earlier in the season and Ipswich's last seven have produced 27 goals, including a 5-1 win against West Ham at Portman Road in their last home outing.

Five of Cardiff's last six have featured both to score and they usually net on their travels.

A game in League Two that has historically produced goals is Orient v Scunthorpe. The last two meetings in London have finished 2-2 and earlier this season it was 3-2 to Orient at Scunthorpe.

Orient have netted in five of their last six matches while five of Scunny's last six have seen both score.

Stay in League for Yeovil v Colchester which finished 2-2 earlier in the season. Yeovil's last five have totalled 19 goals with both teams scoring while Colchester have netted in five of their last six, only failing in a 1-0 defeat at MK Dons.

Complete the fivefold with Southend v Crewe. Southend ended a miserable run with a 2-1 at Gillingham last week but haven't kept a clean sheet in their last six. Their last six games have produced 23 goals while Crewe's last six have featured 19, 11 for and eight against.

Both teams to score

Everton v Blackpool

Ipswich v Cardiff

Orient v Scunthorpe

Yeovil v Colchester

Southend v Crewe

    Paul this looks like a winner mate. Fingers crossed it is and it comes in before half time . Had a free £10 bet with sky bet . Had the double long run and zarkander got up to £25 and stuck that on this 5-fold. Let’s have a big win Mate

      Reece, that would be nice. They always look winners on paper to be honest.

    hey,paul.i been wondering about the Perm any 4 and all 5 (6 bets).let say your going to stake a you split the 6 bets equally with the tenner.I realized the payout will be a little shorter then i going for a straight fivefold instead.but i guess it more of the idea if you get four instead of get a little consalation without much collateral i right?

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Justin, you’re right to say that if all five came up the payout would be smaller than doing a straight five. The perms are for people (like me) who quite often get one wrong. You will almost always cover your full stake making it a bet to nothing but if the odds are big, for example on draws, decent-priced aways and even first scorers, your winnings can be pretty profitable. For example if you risked a tenner on the perm (five bets at £2) and they were all evens one wrong would pay 15-1 at £2. You don’t need to split the stakes equally and by putting a little more on the fivefold you can make up what would have been a shortfall if you get all five correct. I’ve had Unlucky Line of the Week entries to the Record where guys would have won thousands by perming what was a losing bet. For example I had someone who put a straight fiver on seven draws and got six right. If he had permed eight lines for 65p (£5.20 stake) his six draws would have paid about £700.

    that interesting,i have a better understanding about that now.I been having a bad run lately where i keep missing one most of the time on a accumulator.I played around with the perms a bit today.bummer for that someone who missed by one on the draws.but it sound really logical when playing with big odds.thanks,paul and cheers.I think we are all due for a big one soon enuf:)

    Cannot believe Cardiff didn’t score at Ipswich today I’ll be honest to say that I didn’t quite follow your both teams to score completely but that for me was the banker. Grrrrr so frustrating when only one let’s you down .

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Kev, it had the feel of a banker for sure. But look at the Championship as a whole, just one game with both teams scoring. Just one of those days I think.

  7. Kev Perry 12 years ago

    Roll on tomorrow now mate. I like the look of your btts selection. Definitely worth a tenner.
