THERE'S not many domestic matches to choose from this weekend but that hasn't stopped Joe from FootyStats delving in to the stats to find some best bets. This week he's looking beyond Both Teams to Score for value.
Scunthorpe has scored in the last 4 home games, averaging 2.00 goals per game so far this season. On Saturday they welcome Peterborough, who are unbeaten on the road, winning 5/6 games. An impressive start and they have scored 3.17 goals per game, too.
83% of those games has ended with BTTS landing. They come into this one after a 4-0 home defeat so will be relishing this opportunity.
- Both Teams to Score 1/2 (Bet365)
Northampton are in really poor form going into this one, they simply can not score.
They have just 1 goal in the last 5 games and have so far averaged 0.67 goals per game at home. Forest Green Rovers has not yet lost this season and has scored in 11/12 games this season, averaging 2.17 goals per away game.
A win here, whilst team around them face tougher tasks, could see them move into the automatic promotion spots.
- Forest Green Draw No Bet 10/11 (Bet365)
I really like the odds here, especially considering Portsmouth has started the season by winning 83% of their away games. They have conceded just 0.67 goals per game, whilst Wimbledon has won just 1/5 recent home games, conceding 10 goals during that period.
The away side are top of the league and can potentially put some distance between themselves and Peterborough today.
