This week there are a couple of selections for you to chose from on OptaJoke. The first is a good priced double from the English leagues and the second is a goals galore coupon with Betfred.
First, let’s look at the treble:
Newcastle v Arsenal (Away Win) – The gunners are on a good run of form lately and have won 6 out of 6 in all competitions in the run up to this one. They showed spirit to fight back from 1 down against Everton midweek and will be looking to close the 6 point gap on Manchester United. Newcastle were beaten by Fulham midweek and I just don’t see where their goals are coming from in this final few months, with Ameobi out their chances of victory look slim and i’ll happily back the away side here.
Bristol Rovers v Brighton (Away win) – Rovers haven’t had been having a good time of it lately, with a victory over Swindon being their only win in their last 6 games. They’ve been on the recieveing end of some big losing margins against Walsall (6-1) and Carlise (4-0) and I think title contenders Brighton will defintely fancy their chances. Poyet’s side have continued the form that has seen them top the table in recent weeks with wins in both the league and FA Cup boosting morale further on the south coast. I reckon the Seagull’s could run out comfortable winners here and stretch their lead at the top of League One.
This double returns around 7/2 with most firms.
I also fancy the following teams in a 17/1 Goals Galore bet with Betfred. Remember, both teams need to score in each game for it to be a winner. This week’s list is a slightly more achievable 5 games but with these teams in good goalscoring form there could be some high scores around and that spells profit!
Everton V Blackpool
Nottm Forest V Watford
Leeds V Coventry
Portsmouth V Derby
Swindon V Rochdale
