End-to-end entertainment at 100/1...

Tuesday 2nd March 2021

In Across the Leagues today:

  • Ronnie on a hat-trick…
  • Goals galore in the German cup…
  • Win & Both Teams to Score contenders…

End-to-end entertainment at 100/1…

We’ll kick off the busy midweek schedule with a word on two games taking place in Europe this evening…

Ronnie on a hat-trick…

Juventus host Spezia in Serie A tonight. Top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo has landed First Goalscorer bets in each of his last two appearances. He’s a short favourite to make in three tonight – priced at 2/1 (3.0) to score First, and odds-on at 1/2 (1.5) at best to score Anytime.

Goals galore in the German cup…

The DFB-Pokal quarter final between Borussia Monchengladbach and Borussia Dortmund promises goals. Over 2.5 Goals bets have paid out in 11 of the last 14 meetings between these clubs. The problem is, the bookies are expecting goals, too. Over 2.5 is short odds-on at 2/5 (1.4), and it’s the same price for Both Teams to Score.

If you fancy going after a fruity Correct Score, this does look like a match that might produce one. Those past encounters between M’gladbach and Dortmund have seen 4-2, 2-3, 4-1, and 6-1 score-lines.

My main analysis today draws from the League One and League Two stats on our website

  • Talking of League One & Two, we’re on two teams in the Outright & Promotion markets this season. Click on the these links for my recent comments on Blackpool and Morecambe. Both play again this evening

Win & Both Teams to Score contenders…

Since the autumn, our Win & Both Teams to Score feature (Win & BTTS) has proved popular. We’ve had some great nights, with many of you choosing to play these selections in Trixies (3 x Doubles & 1 x Treble), requiring any two matches to tick the Win & BTTS box for a payout.

My preference, more often than not, has been to go for a three-pronged approach; trebles on the Match Win, Both Teams to Score, and Win & BTTS. I’ve taken that route on 13 different matchdays in the English Football League this season. With a total of five payouts, giving an overall 28% ROI to level stakes.

I’m focusing on three matches today. In each case, I’ve included the odds from the three markets mentioned.

Take your pick…

Two games in League One, featuring four teams that are all heavily involved in the promotion battle. With the two visiting teams in form:

Doncaster Rovers v Portsmouth (7pm)

  • Doncaster are ranked 2nd in League One for Both Teams to Score bets (67%). Rovers have lost 4 of their last 5 games. Portsmouth are joint-2nd on the road for Win & BTTS payouts (4). Pompey have won 5 of their last 6 away games

Prices:
Portsmouth to win: 6/4 (2.5)
Both Teams to Score: 8/11 (1.73)

And in League Two, a home side with plenty of credentials for providing end-to-end entertainment…
