Sixfold pays 9/1

Sheffield United vs Nottingham Forest

Sheffield United have already been condemned to relegation, and look likely to finish the season as the bottom club. The Blades have already broken the record for the most goals conceded in a 38-game Premier League season, and look set to smash Swindon’s record of 100 - as they are only three off that tally with three games to play. 

71% of their league matches so far have ended with over 2.5 goals and their shocking defensive record gives me reason to believe this clash with relegation rivals Nottingham Forest will also see plenty of goals.

Liverpool vs Tottenham

A Super Sunday fixture now, and one I’m certain will see goals at both ends. 66% of Liverpool’s matches have seen over 2.5 goals, but Spurs staggeringly have the highest percentage in the division, sitting at a whopping 82%. With both teams boasting exceptional attacks and dodgy defences, this one is a fairly straightforward selection. 

Leicester vs Blackburn

Into the Championship and we can expect more goals than usual in the final round of matches. Every year for the past six seasons, the goal average for the final round of fixtures has exceeded the season average - so bring on the goals! 

Champions of the Championship Leicester City already know that they will be lifting the trophy at the end of their final game at the King Power, having secured their immediate return to the Premier League last weekend. They face a Blackburn side who need one point to confirm their survival, but should be okay even with a defeat, as long as Plymouth and Birmingham City don’t both win. 

Blackburn have the highest over 2.5 goals percentage in the division at 64%, and they have the top goalscorer in the division in Sammie Szmodics, so they may well find the net against Leicester. Meanwhile, the Foxes could run riot as they celebrate what has been a fantastic season. 

Ipswich vs Huddersfield

Ipswich need just one point to secure a return to the Premier League - but they are going to blow Huddersfield away. They should score a minimum of three goals, given they have scored 90 so far this season and will want to put on a show in front of their own fans. A final day hammering against a Huddersfield side that have nothing to play for is on the cards at Portman Road. 

Plymouth vs Hull

Both teams need the points at Home Park, and Hull City need the win if they are to stand any chance of breaking into the play-offs. They are chasing down West Bromwich Albion and Norwich City but with their abundance of attacking quality, they should find the net on multiple occasions against Plymouth. Their last two matches have ended 3-3 and 3-2 proving they are not secure defensively either. 

Meanwhile, Plymouth are under a lot of pressure, but will throw everything forward if they are behind - especially if the Birmingham result is going against them. With Morgan Whittaker they always have a chance of scoring goals. This should be a thriller.

Oxford vs Peterborough

The first leg of this League 1 play-off semi-final sees two of the finest third-tier attacks meet at the Kassam Stadium. Posh were the top scorers in the league with 86 goals, while Oxford outscored both of the top two, Portsmouth and Derby County, by one goal. 

There’s a lot of attacking quality on show here and given the regular-season matches finished 5-0 and 3-0 to the respective home sides, we can expect over 2.5 goals to come in yet again.
