The two UCL games headline tonight's card but its the English Championship I'll be concentrating on as we approach the business end of the season and a good opportunity to back the Total Goals market based on the 5 fixtures.
There are also games from the lower leagues in England as well as games from the Scottish leagues, including my favourite conference league south side Billericay and the Scottish Premiership game between Motherwell and St Mirren.
English Championship Total Goals – 5 matches
Its another important night for sides in the Championship for clubs with promotion aspirations and those looking to beat the drop and I like tonight's 5 fixtures for goals.
Brentford have stuttered recently with a hatrick of draws but they've seen plenty of goals with 19 in the their last 5 gams (all 5 BTTS) and they face a Luton side who are hinging on their at the bottom of the league with 9 of their last 12 a home seeing at least three goals.
QPR have seen more goals in their home games than any other side in the league and we should see goals tonight as Derby rock into the capital (last 5 BTTS ) and a side with the second worst defensive record on the road.
I like the look of BTTS at West Brom and definitely feel Preston can fins the net in what should be a cracking game.
- 14+ goals to be scored
- 4/5 (Skybet) (NAP)
- All 5 games over 1.5 goals
- 5/2 (Skybet)
Team to score double
- Preston to score against WBA
- St Mirren to Score at Motherwell
Crucial game for both sides at the Hawthorns and Preston look big at 4/7 just to score. St Mirren will be fresh after a 7 day lay off and return to the venue of their Scottish cup replay triumph last week against Motherwell. Obika is in fine home and we should see the Paisley saints find the net.
