No clean sheets are welcome for this 4/1 BTTS treble!
Cardiff v QPR - 19:45
I have three really strong-looking BTTS picks on Wednesday.
First up, it’s Cardiff v QPR. The Bluebirds are unbeaten in six (drawing four), although they’ve only kept two clean sheets this season, which is most unlike a Neil Warnock side.
They face a QPR outfit who have been surprisingly impressive thus far, and with three away wins from four—scoring six times along the way—you’d have to say they have a chance on Wednesday.
QPR have scored and conceded 14 times this season—finding themselves in the upper echelons of both metrics—so BTTS looks a really good prospect as they head to South Wales.
Luton v Millwall - 19:45
There’s always action when Luton Town are concerned, and their clash with Millwall may prove a great BTTS prospect.
Both teams have scored in seven of the Hatters’ nine league games heading into this, while Millwall have found the net against West Brom, Middlesbrough and Huddersfield on the road this season – while conceding in all five away games.
I simply cannot see Luton keeping a clean sheet, but with the Lions’ defence hardly a brick wall either, both teams scoring is surely the most likely outcome at Kenilworth Road.
Barnsley v Derby - 19:45
Barnsley v Derby is the third and final BTTS pick of this treble.
The Rams look like another side incapable of keeping clean sheets: Kelle Roos has shipped goals in all-but one match this season, although more encouragingly, only Swansea and Brentford have shut Derby out at the other end.
Barnsley are on an absolute horror-run since their opening day victory over Fulham, but while they’ve failed to score once away from home, they’ve at least caused opponents problems at Oakwell.
Since the Fulham win, Barnsley have scored home goals against Charlton, Luton and Brentford (while also conceding every time), so you have to imagine they’ll have their chances against Derby. The issue is keeping the ball out of their own net.
