Saturday means yet another chance to get a Goals Galore winner and this week’s offering from League One and Two could see new bwin customers turn their free £20 bet into winnings of £114.
The games involving Crewe Alexandra and Crawley Town, Cheltenham Town and Barnet, and Oxford United and Northampton Town all look like fixtures that promise over 2.5 goals – read on to find out why.
Over 2.5 goals in Crewe v Crawley @ 83/100
Crewe drew their last game 3-3 with Sheffield United after bouncing back from 2-0 down, the third time in the last five games they had found the net at least three times. So Alex are in good goalscoring form, but are always likely to concede: they have let the opposition score in 15 of their 19 league matches this season.
Crawley have only failed to score on one occasion away from the Broadfield Stadium this season but have conceded 26 times, the most of any side in the top ten in League One.
And Town’s matches have tended to contain goals – only four sides have seen more strikes in their matches. Their games average 2.89 goals a match and there could well be over 2.5 when they visit Gresty Road.
Over 2.5 goals in Cheltenham v Barnet @ 3/4
Both of these sides have been involved in plenty of matches this season that have finished with over 2.5 goals – in fact, they have identical records. Cheltenham and Barnet have each seen 11 of their 19 league games feature at least three goals and both are averaging 2.68 goals per match.
Three of Barnet’s last four have seen at least three goals, while three of Town’s last five have done the same, and it looks set for an entertaining afternoon at Whaddon Road.
Barnet have conceded nine in their last six away matches, including a 4-1 hammering by Morecambe on their last away day, so the Robins’ strong home form and the Bees’ average away form means goals look a decent bet here.
Over 2.5 goals in Oxford vs Northampton @ 39/50
Two poor defences and one very in-form attack should see three goals go in when Northampton make the short trip to face Oxford United on Saturday.
The Cobblers seem to be trying to score their way into the play-off places, firing in 15 in their last six games, though they have shown weakness at the back, conceding eight goals in that time. Away from home, Northampton average 3.22 goals a game and that should continue when they go to the Kassam Stadium.
Oxford’s matches have been among the goals recently, with four of the last six seeing over 2.5 goals, and this game should see at least three goals here – expect them to come rather quickly.
