Arsenal v Shrewsbury Town
First up, I’ve picked there to be more than 2.5 goals in Arsenal’s clash with Shrewsbury at odds of 37/100.
If goals are on the agenda anywhere in the country this evening it is at the Emirates.
Arsenal might be on a poor run of form – they have lost three of their last six matches – but games they have been involved in have featured plenty of goals.
Indeed, there have been more than 2.5 goals in five of Arsenal’s last eight league matches, with an average of 3.9 goals a game scored during this period.
Meanwhile, there have more than 2.5 goals in three of Shrewsbury’s last five games and their most recent fixture contained no fewer than five.
With the Gunners’ 4-3 defeat to Blackburn on Saturday likely to provoke a reaction, three goals looks like being the minimum punters can expect in north London.
Leeds United v Manchester United
Similarly, there should be plenty of attacking intent at Elland Road, with more than 2.5 goals in the Leeds v Man Utd match priced at 1/2.
The Red Devils have struck 21 times in their five domestic fixtures so far this season, while the four games at Elland Road this campaign have features 14 goals.
Sir Alex Ferguson might be fielding a weakened side against Leeds, but with Michael Owen and Dimitar Berbatov at his disposal Man Utd will still carry a serious threat going forward.
Additionally, Leeds are likely to be weakened as boss Simon Grayson juggles his squad with Friday’s Championship clash with Brighton in mind.
Aldershot Town v Rochdale
My final pick is for there to be more than 2.5 goals in the Aldershot v Rochdale game at odds of 39/50.
While the Shots have not been particularly prolific of late – none of their last six matches, in which they are undefeated, have featured more than two goals – games involving their opponents in recent weeks have seen the net bulge on numerous occasions.
Rochdale’s last match was a 3-2 home defeat to Charlton, and prior to a 1-0 win over Scunthorpe they beat Bury 4-2 and went down 4-2 to Stevenage and 3-1 to Hartlepool.
With goals a common theme, it is not too hard to envisage a similarly high-scoring game at the Recreation Ground this evening.
Betting on there to be more than 2.5 goals in an Arsenal v Shrewsbury, Leeds v Man Utd and Aldershot v Rochdale accumulator therefore looks like a safe option, and don’t forget that if all of these picks come off, punters who staked £25 on the over 2.5 goals treble stand to collect £91.50.
