Our Saturday BTTS Tips column is on quite the drought, having not come good since the third week of the season.

We try to get off the snide once more this weekend as we go six-games deep with a price of 13/1 for the sixfold...

BTTS Tips - Saturday 4 November, 2023

  • Back BTTS Yes in Everton vs Brighton & Hove Albion @ 1/2
  • Back BTTS Yes in Millwall vs Southampton @ 8/11
  • Back BTTS Yes in Plymouth Argyle vs Middlesbrough @ 8/15
  • Back BTTS Yes in Sutton United vs AFC Fylde @ 4/9
  • Back BTTS Yes in Swindon Town vs Aldershot Town @ 4/6
  • Back BTTS Yes in Yeovil Town vs Gateshead @ 1/2
  • Overall Odds - 13/1

Leg 1 - Everton vs Brighton & Hove Albion @ 1/2

Brighton are still the only team in the top-four English divisions who are 100% for BTTS. We are ten games into the season and they are still giving their fans something to cheer and recoil in despair at each time they take to the field of play.

On Saturday they travel to Goodison where the home side have only kept the one clean sheet in the league. Roberto De Zerbi’s men will surely fail us and this column at some point soon but I just don’t see it being this week.

Leg 2 - Millwall vs Southampton @ 8/11

As a Pompey fan, it saddens me to see Southampton having got out of their rut and once more looking like a promotion contender. One thing they haven’t turned around though is their defence, as they have conceded more times than any other side in the top half of the Championship table. BTTS has been a winner in six of their past seven.

Millwall (43%) aren’t the best when it comes to this bet, with only three teams in the division worse than them for the statistic. They are however on a good run having come up trumps in four straight. 

With the poor run Southampton are on at the back, the odds of BTTS do seem good to come in once more.

Leg 3 - Plymouth Argyle vs Middlesbrough @ 8/15

I am still not happy with Middlesbrough. That home loss to Stoke last Saturday cost me a very sweet 35/1 acca as the other four legs all came in. They had won seven straight before that. Football eh?

Plymouth score plenty at home in front of their own fans. They have found the back of the net 21 times in nine games at Home Park. Good for over two-a-game. Defensively they’ve been good but they’ve still let in 14.

Until that dud last Saturday, Middlesbrough had scored in nine-straight. Michael Carrick’s side have already beaten Plymouth’s arch-rivals this week, having taken care of Exeter 2-3 in the Carabao Cup. I like them to give the Pilgrims a real good game, with both sides getting on the scoresheet.

Leg 4 - Sutton United vs AFC Fylde @ 4/9

Chris Beech’s side do my nut in. They are consistently inconsistent. They are terrific for BTTS (72%) and Over 2.5 Goals (83%) but in the five times they've appeared in one of those columns here at Betfred Insights, only the once did they come good (and that game was goalless until the 79th minute). It is like I’m their bad luck charm for backers of these bets.

Still, they are statistically a very good play, so despite my reticence towards putting them in, you simply have to consider them one of the best plays for either stat this weekend. They face a Sutton United side, who have plenty of problems themselves when it comes to keeping clean sheets. 

Both teams have conceded 36 times in the league (Sutton through 16 games, Fylde 18). So defensively, you can’t expect either to keep the opposition out. You just can’t.

Leg 5 - Swindon Town vs Aldershot Town @ 4/6

When doing this column week in, week out, I am often drawn to the same teams and one of them is very much Swindon Town. They score plenty in front of their own fans but last time out was their only failure in that regard at the County Ground so far this season. That game was against Gillingham though, who seem to have quite the habit of low-scoring games.

Aldershot might be a division below their opponents on Saturday but they have found the back of the net in no fewer than 14-straight games. That is quite the run. Of those 14, only twice have they themselves kept a clean sheet. They are a BTTS juggernaut who deserve more play in this column. 

Leg 6 - Yeovil Town vs Gateshead @ 1/2

This is the first time Yeovil have appeared in one of the Saturday accumulator columns here at Betfred Insights and I have to admit, their demise has passed me by somewhat. They were briefly in the Championship less than a decade ago but now are back in the sixth-tier of the football pyramid, albeit currently top of the National League South.

Gateshead have one of the most potent attacks in the National League, with only the top two having scored more. With manager Mike Williamson having departed for MK Dons however, their 0-4 home defeat to AFC Fylde last weekend was quite the shocker and puts some question marks as to whether he was the man behind their offensive game plan. 

This is a tough cup tie for the team from the North East and quite the journey. A home win would not surprise at all (21/10 for those interested) but one bad outing in front of goal isn’t anything to be overly concerned about. Fully expect both teams to score in Saturday afternoon down at Huish Park.

We provide Accas throughout the week and have multiple columns of this type every Saturday. Make sure to check out all of our Football Accumulator Tips at the Acca hub page.
