This week we take a closer look at the Both Teams to Score or Goals Galore markets. First we will examine which teams across Europe are performing well in this area and then will select some stand out fixtures from the top leagues this weekend.
Top teams in the BTTS markets
Across all the European leagues, there is one team that is leading the way in the BTTS stats and that team is Estoril. The Portuguese Primeira Liga side has an incredible 100% strike rate in both their home and away game so far this season. Estoril are closely followed by Italian Serie B relegation candidates Cittadella who have an overall BTTS ratio of 87.5%.
Best home and away records
There are three teams who have a 100% home record in this category: Estoril, Exeter City and Serie B side Varese; and five teams with a 100% away record: Estoril, Milan, West Ham and Dutch Eredivisie side Go Ahead Eagles.
Keep an eye on those teams when filling out your Goals Galore coupons over the following weeks.
This week’s tips
This weekend we have picked 10 fixtures that should be considered in the Both Teams to Score market. The first game is in the Premier League and features in-form Manchester City who host Everton at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday. Home games for City have resulted in both teams scoring on 4 out of 6 occasions – a total strike rate of 66.7 %. Both teams have scored in 85.7% of their opponents away games. This combined result of 152.4 % put this game into the right area for this market.
In Germany there is one game that fills the criteria to be considered in this category and that is Borrussia Monchengladbach, who have a 71.4% home record; against Hertha Berlin, who have an away ratio of 66.7%.
The Italian league also gives us a couple of options this weekend. Firstly, Milan – who have a 100% strike rate on the road in this category – will be travelling to Genoa. Only 50% of the home side’s games have resulted in both teams scoring, but the combined total of 150% still puts this game firmly on the radar.
It is a similar story in Sardinia where Cagliari have a BTTS record of 83.3% at home and will face Chievo who have a 57.1% ratio on the road. The combined figure of 140.1% still makes this game a very good candidate for your coupon.
This season’s leaders in the Goals Galore market are Estoril and they will be at home to Vitória Setúbal this weekend. All of the host’s games (home and away) have paid out in the BTTS market this season, so even the visitors distinctively average ratio of 50% should not put you off backing this game.
In Holland, we see some of the best match ups of all this weekend with a total of four stand out games.
AZ Alkmaar – with a home ratio of 57.1 – will take on the Go Ahead Eagles who have a 100% BTTS record in their away games.
PEC Zwolle and ADO Den Haag both have a 71.4% score for their respective home and away games.
Both teams have scored in a total of 71.4% of Utrecht’s home games, while 85.7% of away games involving their opponents Heracles have also produced this result.
The stand out game of the whole weekend takes place at the GelreDome in Arnhem between Vitesse and FC Twente. A total of 85.7% of Vitesse’s home games and 85.7% of Twente’s away games have seen goals from both sides. The combined total of 171.4% makes it highly likely that both teams will score in this game.
