Both teams to score: Five Saturday games where goals could flow
Morecambe let us down for a 17/1 pay-out on our both teams to score accumulator on Tuesday night but we’re hoping to go one better and land a 22/1-plus five-timer with these matches on Saturday.
Wigan v Preston @ Evens
The Latics have shown enough in recent weeks to suggest they can climb out of the relegation zone, drawing 2-2 at home to Norwich, losing narrowly in a five-goal thriller at Fulham and then beating Wolves away. Preston should also be in good spirits following home wins over Brentford (4-2) and Birmingham (2-1), with attacking trio Callum Robinson, Jordan Hugill and Aiden McGeady all going well.
Bradford v Bolton @ 21/20
Wanderers have managed to keep things tight away from home this season but here they will face a Bradford outfit that is playing some really attractive football at the moment. Both teams have netted in the Bantams’ last six matches, while Bolton haven’t drawn a blank in eight, so fingers crossed for a high-quality affair.
MK Dons v Fleetwood @ 87/100
The Dons have only failed to score once in their last 10 home matches and no League One team has conceded more times in front of their own fans than Robbie Neilson’s side, so this is definitely a venue to go to for goals. Fleetwood are full of confidence after losing just one of their last 20 fixtures and finished strongly in Tuesday’s 2-1 defeat of Bradford.
Crawley v Morecambe @ 4/5
Crawley returned to winning ways on Tuesday when a Jimmy Smith hat-trick inspired them to a 3-2 victory at Colchester and striker James Collins has also been in fine form of late, netting in five of his last seven appearances. Morecambe unfortunately had Peter Murphy sent off early on when drawing a blank at home to Barnet in midweek, but had scored in 10 of their previous 11 fixtures.
Leyton Orient v Notts County @ 7/10
The O’s are fighting for survival but will have been buoyed by their last two results, a 1-1 draw at Yeovil and a thrilling 3-2 success at promotion-chasing Plymouth, when striking twice late on. The hope is they can maintain that momentum with another positive display. Notts County are also going the right way judged on last weekend’s 2-1 defeat of Cheltenham and Tuesday’s 2-2 draw with Exeter.
