PUNTERS the length and breadth of the country were cursing Rangers last night as they could only manage a pathetic 2-0 win at home to League One strugglers Stranraer.

It was a sore one for punters and a terrific start for the weekend for the bookies but punters and I included will be hoping for a much better Saturday.

I have three goals bets from the English card and two specials from the English National League.

Norwich vs Bournemouth (3pm)

This is the true epitome of a six-pointer – basement side Norwich face second-bottom Bournemouth in a match the Canaries can ill-afford to lose. Lose and it's curtains for them.

They are up against a Bournemouth side who can't buy a goal and have slid down the league after a promising start. They've scored just 2 goals in their last 8 matches which is a shocking return and without a win in 10 the pressure is starting to build up on the south-coast side.

The worrying thing for them is they have lost to clubs you would be expecting them to pick up some points so can't blame a tough fixture list. That said they have had a lengthy injury list.

Norwich have seen plenty of goals at Carrow Road and they've managed to score two against Arsenal, Man City, Tottenham and Chelsea – this is their biggest game of the season and losing is not an option against a Bournemouth side who are in a dire positon and can't score.

Recommended Bet

  • Norwich to Score 2+ goals
  • 12/11 (VBET)

QPR vs Leeds (12.45pm)

Stats-based selection here from my book of goals and it's a side and market I've have had some good success with this season. Loftus Road has been a goal haven this season particularly for second-half goals.

Thirteen of their 17 home games have seen at least two second-half goals and with 13 of those games going over 2.5 goals there's a great chance we'll see another 2 goals as promotion-chasing Leeds roll into town.

Recommended Bet

  • Over 1.5 second-half goals
  • 4/5 (bet365)

English National League Total Goals – 11 Matches

England's 5fifth tier has been great for goals this season but the  goals seemed to have dried up over the Christmas and New Year period. All 22 sides are in action today with some great looking games.

The goals total has been set lower by Sky Bet as a result with 30+ goals set at a fair 4/5 and I think it's worth taking on.

Recommended Bets

  • 30+ goals to be scored 4/5 (NAP)
  • All 11 matches over 0.5 first-half goals 40/1
  • All matches over 1.5 goals 14/1

    Greg I see 12 matches in National league or am I missing something? 🤔

      Think it will be the eleven 3 o’clock kick offs, the 12th game is 1720 ko. 👍

      Just checked 365 manually taking over 0.5 fhgs and its 31-1 so better taking the 40s from skybet.

    Ladbrokes is 44/1 unboosted and 51/1 boosted for the first half goals acca if anyone has an account.

    12/1 unboosted and 16/1 boosted for the over 1.5 part.

      @foxwalker where do you go on William Hill to get those odds? Can only do it manually for 24/1 odds
