We’ve selected five Boxing Day clashes in the both teams to score market which we think will come up with the goods. Our recommendations pay out nearly 17/1.
Chelsea v Bournemouth @ 91/100
Considering Chelsea have kept nine clean sheets in their last 11 games, we’re taking a chance on Bournemouth scoring at Stamford Bridge. However, the Blues are without Diego Costa for the first time this season and their ball-winner N’Golo Kante is also suspended. Both teams have scored in four of the Cherries’ last five matches, two of which were against Arsenal and Liverpool.
Leicester v Everton @ 13/20
Both teams have scored in the last six encounters between these teams but it’s not just history which makes us lean towards this fixture. The Foxes have scored and conceded in their last four matches at the King Power Stadium while the same can be said about three of Everton’s last five away games. Three of the Toffees’ last four fixtures have also involved both teams scoring.
Arsenal v West Brom @ 19/20
Although West Brom traditionally struggle to score in this fixture, certain factors suggest this game will help us in our accumulator bid. The Gunners’ last five matches in all competitions have involved both teams scoring and their last four home games have seen both teams hit the back of the net. The Baggies have scored in five of their last six away games and 58.8% of their matches tick the ‘yes’ box. On the down side, West Brom have scored just one goal in their previous five Premier League visits to the Emirates but we think Tony Pulis will change that statistic.
Barnsley v Blackburn @ 13/20
Blackburn have developed a scoring and conceding streak which is hard to ignore. Seven of their last eight matches have involved both teams scoring and they have lost their last three games 3-2 both home and away. Barnsley had a couple of goalless draws in November but since then 22 goals have flowed in their last five matches, the latest a dramatic 4-3 win at Cardiff.
Ipswich v Fulham @ 3/4
The Tractor Boys are starting to become an essential part of the both teams to score accumulator having hit the ‘yes’ box in their last three matches. The last four meetings between these sides have resulted in both teams scoring so history is on our side as well. Fulham’s last three outings have also paid out in the BTTS stakes, with their matches against Wolves and Derby ending up 4-4 and 2-2 respectively.
