Both Teams To Score Form Guide
Both teams to score or BTTS is one of the most popular football bets because it’s a very simple market to understand. To win, you need both teams to score one goal or more in your selected fixture.
The final result of the game is irrelevant – the game can finish 5-1, 5-4, 3-3, 2-1, or 1-1. As long as both teams have scored, you will win your bet.
Below we will compile a weekly, updated list of the best fixtures to bet on in the BTTS markets ahead of the action-packed mid-week and weekend football schedules. Make sure to bookmark this page that will be regularly refreshed with new matches.
Blackburn Rovers vs Norwich City – Championship (22nd December)
Blackburn Rovers take on the high-flying Canaries at Ewood Park on Saturday, looking to strengthen their Championship playoff challenge at Norwich’s expense.
Both teams scored in 100% of Rovers’ last 6 games and in 8 of their last 9 matches overall, while both teams hit the net in 5 of Norwich’s last 6 fixtures.
In addition, goals have gone in at both ends in a huge 73% of Norwich City’s total Championship fixtures this season. History is also firmly on our side – both teams scored in each of Blackburn and Norwich’s last 4 meetings.
Sheffield Wednesday vs Preston North End – Championship (22nd December)
Sheffield Wednesday and Preston North End are separated by 3 places and 4 points head of their Championship clash at Hillsborough on Saturday afternoon.
Both teams registered in 4 of the Owls’ last 5 matches and their BTTS figure for the season currently stands at a noteworthy 77%.
Preston’s BTTS stats for the 2018/19 campaign aren’t quite as high, though both teams have scored in 73% of their last 15 fixtures in league and cup.
Shrewsbury Town vs Coventry City – League One (22nd December)
League One mid-table dwellers Shrewsbury Town and Coventry City go head-to-head at Montgomery Waters Meadow on Saturday in another fixture that promises goals at both ends.
Goals went in for both teams in 80% of Shrewsbury’s most recent 10 games, while Coventry City’s BTTS percentage for their last 10 matches stands just slightly lower at 70%.
Coventry have kept only 1 clean sheet in their last 17 games in total, while the Shrews have kept their opponents at home just twice in 8 attempts.
Cardiff City vs Manchester United – Premier League (22nd December)
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer takes charge of Manchester United for the first time on Saturday for a fixture against the team relegated under his management in 2014, Cardiff City.
The struggling Bluebirds’ results have taken a more positive turn in recent weeks, though City’s problems at the back remain depressingly consistent. Cardiff have kept just 1 clean sheet in their last 15 games.
Both teams scored in 6 of their last 9 however, which shows that City are developing a useful scoring habit. Man Utd’s own defensive deficiencies have been well documented – they have just 2 clean sheets in 17 league games this term.
In terms of the BTTS markets, both teams registered in 82% of United’s EPL fixtures this season – the highest figure in the entire division. It would be a huge surprise if both Cardiff and United didn’t get on the scoresheet in Wales this weekend.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Bayern Munich – Bundesliga (22nd December)
Eintracht Frankfurt can close to within 3 points of 3rd place Bayern Munich, if they can find a win when they host the current Bundesliga champions at the Commerzbank-Arena on Saturday.
Frankfurt are one of the German top flight’s BTTS specialists – both teams scored in 75% of their Bundesliga matches so far in 2018/19, and in 86% of their league matches on home turf.
Bayern Munich’s mask of invincibility has slipped a little this season, and their problems can largely be attributed to their underperforming defence.
Bayern have kept their opponents out just 5 times in their last 18 matches in total, and both teams scored in 11 of those fixtures.
Frankfurt have yet to fail to hit the mark at home in the Bundesliga – the Eagles have scored in 100% of their league matches at the Commerzbank-Arena this season so far.
That combination of factors means it’s highly likely that both Frankfurt and Bayern will get in on the act on Saturday.
Genoa vs Atalanta – Serie A (22nd December)
Serie A strugglers Genoa entertain European qualification contenders Atalanta at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris on Saturday, aiming to secure the result they need to put some more space between themselves and the drop zone.
Both teams have scored in 81% of Genoa’s Serie A matches this season, a sequence that includes their recent run of 10 games in 11 where both teams registered.
A comparable BTTS figure can be found in Atlanta’s away game statistics from this season. Both teams scored in 75% of Atlanta’s matches away from the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia in 2018/19.
More recently, both teams found a way to score in 100% of Atlanta’s last 4 away trips. We’re backing that pattern to continue this weekend.
