It’s the final weekend of the Premier League and, with that, I take another look at the Both Teams To Score (BTTS) market and serve you up an accumulator to follow along the way. We were so close last weekend and can thank title challengers Arsenal for not being able to score a goal against relegation battlers Nottingham Forest as our big letdown. In theory, the last games of the season typically serve up the most goals and so hopefully we can hit our accy to sign off with a bang. My Premier League BTTS tips preview follows below.
Leeds vs Tottenham – BTTS (YES) – 4:30pm BST, Sunday
I start with one of the big matches of the day as Leeds search for an important win that may just keep them up. We tend to see plenty of goals when these two play and they are both at the top (1st and 2nd) of the BTTS table. Leeds at home, we’ve seen 67% of their matches have both teams scoring. Tottenham, away, also 67% going the same way. Leeds have only failed to score at home 4 times this season whilst Tottenham have failed to score away just twice. All stats point toward both teams hitting the back of the net.
Aston Villa vs Brighton – BTTS (YES) – 4:30pm BST, Sunday
Aston Villa are primed to get into Europe and all they now need is a win over Brighton at home. I spoke about Villa’s good form in the accumulator tips preview and they’re probably my bet of the weekend to beat Brighton. Brighton are playing some great stuff but now they have that point that gets them into the Europa League, I feel like they can just enjoy the last match. It being away from home, there is no pressure there at all, for Brighton.
Brighton have only failed to score once away from home this season whilst Villa have failed to score at Villa Park just twice. It’s another one that looks like the right pick of the weekend matches for BTTS.
Chelsea vs Newcastle – BTTS (YES) – 4:30pm BST, Sunday
I would normally stay well clear of Chelsea with BTTS but they are playing better stuff now and I think in front of their own fans that they’ll at least score against Newcastle. Chelsea have found it hard going to find the back of the net this season but they’ve now scored in 4 of the last 5 matches and that includes against Arsenal and Manchester United away.
Newcastle have only failed to score away 6 times this season and with the goals conceded by Chelsea recently (11 conceded in May) you’d have to say that they’re likely to have little trouble with their attack.
Brentford vs Manchester City – BTTS (YES) – 4:30pm BST, Sunday
We’re going for a big one for this final weekender. Pick 4 of 6 is Brentford taking on Man City. Man City have the job done and this is just a fill-in before the two big games for them. Taking on Inter for the Champions League and then Man United for the FA Cup and famous treble. I think they’re vulnerable to a defeat in this one and I was tempted to put it up in my accy this weekend.
Brentford have played some really solid stuff this season and sit 9th in the Premier League. At home, they have seen BTTS occur 61% of the time. They’ve failed to score at home just twice. Which is the key stat. As you’d expect City to get a goal with their talent. Both first team and second…. and third.
Everton vs Bournemouth – BTTS (YES) – 4:30pm BST, Sunday
The penultimate pick is Everton taking on Bournemouth. Out of all my BTTS picks this weekend, this was the one that worried me the most. I say this because I think Everton are going to play a defensive-counter type game early on and try to snatch a 1-0 victory. However, Bournemouth have little to play for and I just have a feeling that they will come out of the traps and attack, and if they get the first goal, then we’ll likely see BTTS.
Everton have failed to score at home 5 times this season. Bournemouth 9 times away. Bournemouth have just 3 clean sheets away from home though and Everton have seen BTTS 44% of the time this season at Goodison Park.
Leicester vs West Ham – BTTS (YES) – 4:30pm BST, Sunday
I complete the huge 20/1 accumulator with Leicester taking on West Ham. I think West Ham are actually a nice price this weekend but the fact they have such little to play for and the fact Leicester have to win and they’re in front of the fans has cooled my excitement. When else would you see odds on for Leicester at home to beat anybody at the moment?
Leicester have just 3 clean sheets this season and West Ham have failed to score away from home in 50% of matches they’ve played. West Ham have failed to score in the last 2 away matches but they’ve been defeats to Manchester City and Brentford. If we look at matches prior to that, they scored 3 against Palace and 4 against Bournemouth.
