After being let down by Arsenal and Udinese in my previous over 2.5 goals treble earlier in the week, I’m quietly confident of success with the three fixtures I’ve pinpointed in Saturday’s Football League fixture list. Punters who join bwin.com and wager their free £25 bet on these selections could pocket winnings of if all three come in.
The first game to look at is the Championship tie between Burnley and Cardiff. Over half (54%) of Burnley’s matches last season produced over 2.5 goals and they have scored in 12 of their last 13 home matches, including two against Watford in a 2-2 draw on the opening weekend. Cardiff have found the net 16 times in their last ten away matches and their last two Championship games have featured four goals, showing all the signs that this one could feature over 2.5 goals at 4/5 with bwin.
Next up is the late Championship kick-off that sees Peterborough face Ipswich. Posh were the kings of the over 2.5 market across all the divisions last season. A remarkable 78% of their matches produced three or more goals and this season has started in the same fashion. All three of their Championship games have ticked that particular box, as well as a League Cup tie. Ipswich were involved in a seven-goal bonanza in midweek when they were beaten 5-2 at home to Southampton. Coupled with their impressive 3-0 win on the opening day of the season against Bristol City, it seems fair to say that both teams will be looking to attack rather than defend in this one. Over 2.5 goals is priced at 3/5 with bwin.
Finally we drop down to League Two for Rotherham vs Barnet. Rotherham are top of League Two at this early stage, having scored seven goals in their opening three matches. Barnet, meanwhile, were involved in the third highest percentage of League Two games containing over 2.5 goals last season (59%) and so far this term they have been involved in two four-goal games. Furthermore, the Bees have scored in four of their last five away matches and were strong enough to defeat Championship opponents Portsmouth at Fratton Park in the League Cup. The over 2.5 goals selection is priced at 3/4 with bwin for this clash at Millmoor.
