While the Boxing Day fixtures didn’t bring their usual goal rush, there are a few teams across the leagues that always seem to guarantee goals.
Here are one Premier League game, one Championship game and one League One game which, if bet on in an over 2.5 goals treble, could earn ₤103.54 for new customers using the free £25 bet they receive when joining bwin.com.
Over 2.5 goals in Man Utd v Blackburn @ 2/5
Though last year’s Dimitar Berbatov-inspired 7-1 United win was the exception rather than the rule in this fixture historically, the two sides’ contrasting form this season suggests a repeat performance could be on the cards.
United drew level on points with title rivals Man City on Boxing Day following back-to-back 5-0 wins against Fulham and Wigan. On the same day, Blackburn took a bit of pressure off beleaguered boss Steve Kean with a 1-1 draw at Liverpool.
However, that was only the sixth time in 22 games this season that Rovers have played out a game with under 2.5 goals and with United in such rampant form it’s unlikely they’ll be able to do so again.
Over 2.5 goals in Reading v Ipswich @ 18/25
Free-scoring Reading look to be putting together another play-off run, with a 3-0 Boxing Day win over Brighton seeing them climb to sixth in the table.
That was the seventh time in 12 games this season where fans at the Madejski have seen three goals or more and the visit of an Ipswich side who’ve conceded a league-high 43 goals promises to offer more of the same on New Year’s Eve.
Over 2.5 goals in Carlisle v Huddersfield @ 18/25
A match-up between the league’s most entertaining side (Carlisle have played in 15 games with over 2.5 goals) and the team who went on the longest unbeaten run in Football League history this year should offer a guarantee of goals.
A thrilling 3-3 draw with Preston on Boxing Day was just the latest example of why Carlisle games have offered good value for money for fans this season and why betting on three goals or more in their games can provide good value for punters.
This is particularly the case against a Huddersfield side whose 12 games of over 2.5 goals this season include a 4-4 draw with Sheffield Wednesday earlier this month.
