SOME of the best strikers in the world are in action tonight – the likes of Messi, Ronaldo, Cavani and Balotelli.

But I'm starting my goals line in a game where the likes of Steven Craig and Mark Roberts are looking to shine.

Ayr v Ross County has one major factor in its favour – both teams have plenty to play for and I reckon there will be goals at Somerset Park.

The home side moved off the bottom with a super 3-1 win over Livingston at the weekend while Ross County lead Falkirk at the top only on goal difference but have three games in hand.

Both teams scored when they met in Dingwall a couple of weeks ago. In fact County's last five have featured both netting with four of those games finishing 1-1.

Ayr's last five have also seen both net, with two 1-1 draws, and that scoreline is a possibility although if forced to pick a winner I'd look at County edging it.

Two SFL teams let me down last night as eight of my 10 selections netted but I'm prepared to take a chance on Arbroath v Airdrie.

The home men will go top with a win and have been in sparkling form and are unbeaten since losing to Rangers in the Scottish Cup at the start of last month.

They have netted 15 in their last six and should add another three points, although midfielder Josh Falkingham and frontman Collin Samuel will be missed.

Arbroath have conceded in their last five and although Airdrie haven't scored in two they boast the division's top marksman Ryan Donnelly so you can't rule them out.

There have been 10 goals in two meetings of the sides this season and it was 3-1 Arbroath at home earlier in the campaign.

So from Gayfield to a great field and it's Wembley for England v Holland. It's a tough one to call with Stuart Pearce trying to make an impression as caretaker boss.

However, both teams should score with Holland possessing a threat from the likes of Robin van Persie (if he starts) and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.

England will be without Darren Bent and Wayne Rooney so will be looking to goals from the likes of Danny Welbeck, Theo Walcott and Steven Gerrard.

The home men have scored in their last six and I expect them to hit the target at least once.

It's difficult to leave out a clash between old foes Germany and France. Germany have banged in 20 in six games but don't always keep it tight at the back and their only clean sheet during that time was against Holland.

They conceded three to Ukraine and two to Poland and Austria so I expect the French who could play with more freedom on their travels to hit the target at least once.

Complete the line with improving Poland at home to Portugal. The Poles boast outstanding strikers in the shape of Borussia Dortmund duo Jakub Blaszcykowski and Robert Lewandowski and although you can't get their names on the back of a top you could put your jersey on one or both scoring.

Portugal's last six games have featured 28 goals including a 6-2 win against Bosnia and 5-3 v Iceland. Conceding three to the Icelanders was some feat but with Cristiano Ronaldo in your line-up you'll always be confident of outscoring the opposition.

Both teams to score

Ayr v Ross County

Arbroath v Airdrie

England v Holland

Germany v France

Poland v Portugal

    hi there. i have been following your BTTS tips with interest lately as i am an avid fan of this bet. i have 1 question, why do you always pick 5 games? do you ever consider doing more and/or less? for example, i thought last night Port Vale and Stevenage were banker bets, so i just backed those 2. i noticed you picked them as well, so would you consider more/less picks?

      Julian, I would rarely do more, it’s just adding difficulty to the bet. The more selections the harder it is to pick a win. I usually put up five and it’s up to punters whether to take it or leave it. Anyone can choose to do one, two, three or four or add there own if they wish.

  2. julian 7 years ago

    thanks for your response. like you say, 5 is probably as high as you can go. when you list your 5 picks, are they in any form or order, such as strongest fancy first? would this be an idea?

      Julian, they do tend to be in order. The game I intro on is normally the one I fancy most. Take a look at that goalsbetting site which rates games out of 100 on its chance of having both teams to score. I have my own methods of picking them but have looked there after settling on my games and often they rate high up on the rankings.

    Paul, William Hills must love you, there’s that much money gone onto those teams that punt is now down to 19/1!

    Julian, Paul’s right after a five-fold it gets stickier and stickier to win, imagine you wanting just one goal on an eight-fold and them not scoring!!!!

    In one mid-week last August the bookies lost millions because practically every team scored in the 1st, 2nd and Blue Square prem. I won hansomly on my eight-fold (the only time I’ve won that many)and had a pound on a 16-fold.
    Needless to say Scunthorpe were the only team not to score on that line and I missed out (with bonuses) on four grand.
    Gutted to say the least.
    So I now stick to four and five-folds.

      John, its shows how popular the site is getting and why I keep putting up btts lines. But they like me only when the selections lose!

      There’s nothing wrong with throwing a couple of quid at a line of say 9 or 10 matches but you won’t get it up very often. Putting on a load of teams for small stakes is fun betting but if you are trying to make a profit put in fewer selections.

      I’m try to cater for a wide audience but I know people who always do singles, never more, and that makes complete sense if your using decent stakes. For example, if you bet all 5 btts as singles and they are about the same price you need 3 up to make a profit.

  4. julian 7 years ago

    Thanks for your response Paul and John.

    Personally, i am quite happy to back singles and upwards. For example, the game at Forfar on Tuesday was 1/2 online at Hills but 8/11 on the shop coupon. i also agree that picking more than 5 can become complicated and the margin of success is lower.

    my question was mainly if the games that you pick are in any order, and it seems that they are.

    when i look back, then this would stack up because last Sundays picks were not in time nor league order, so it must be your confidence order

    thanks for the clarification and and keep up the good work!

    unlucky last night with the poland game

      Julian, last night was a prime example. I personally permed trebles, fourfolds and fivefolds (16 bets). So the stake is higher but the profit is greater for four out of five. I do tend to pick them in order but sometimes there is a link between two games and they sit well following on. Read the Portugal match report and Poland’s top striker was ruled out before the game injured but I hadn’t read that anywhere which is why I often say check starting line-ups. The game was a sell-out for the opening of a new stadium for 2012 but it read as if Ronaldo and co were going through the motions.

      Only one beat us to be fair so a small return. Not as bad as I feared and noticed very few home teams won. Maybe one to watch for next round of friendlies.
