After enjoying varied scoring fortunes in last weekend’s FA Cup, fans of Southampton, Blackpool and MK Dons will hope their sides pick up where they left off in the league and continue their goalscoring successes.
With over 150 goals between them this season, the Saints, the Seasiders and the Dons boast some of the country’s most potent attacks and matches against generous defences like Nottingham Forest, Ipswich and Carlisle are a great chance to prolong that form.
Should there be more than 2.5 goals in all those games, then new customers using the free £25 bet they receive when they register with bwin in a treble would win a cool £150.50.
Over 2.5 goals in Nottingham Forest v Southampton @ evens
While the goals have dried up a little for Saints, who have just one win in their last five league games, they remain the Championship’s top scorers, averaging 1.9 goals per game.
Last weekend’s FA Cup win at Coventry will have restored their confidence and Nigel Adkins’ side will fancy their chances of getting back among the goals at the City Ground, where Forest have lost eight times this season, conceding a league-high 21 goals in the process.
Over 2.5 goals in Ipswich v Blackpool @ 18/25
Blackpool’s five-goal show at local rivals Fleetwood Town in the FA Cup was just the latest example of the Seasiders’ scoring prowess and the 17th time this season they’ve been involved in a game featuring over 2.5 goals.
With the form Matty Phillips is in, there’s a good chance he could score over 2.5 goals all on his own as he looks for his third hat-trick in as many weeks.
A visit to Portman Road represents a great opportunity for him to pull off that feat, as Ipswich remain in free-fall with just one win in their last six home games and have conceded more than two goals to six visiting sides.
Over 2.5 goals in MK Dons v Carlisle @ 3/4
Despite ultimately failing to pull off the upset, MK Dons’ dominance of Premier League QPR was enough to get Neil Warnock the sack and they’ll hope to maintain that level of performance when they host Carlisle.
It was actually a shock that Rangers held Karl Robinson’s side to just one goal at stadium:MK, where the Dons have averaged over two goals a game in League One.
They’ll hope to improve that average against a Carlisle side who’ve been involved in as many games with over 2.5 combined goals (17 of their 25 have fit this criteria thus far) as any side in the whole Football League.
