Our both teams to score betting tips were rather waylaid by the weather last week, with the Beast from the East and Storm Emma combining to ensure that two of our picks were postponed and thus voided by the bookmakers.
Of the three that did play, two landed (Brighton vs Arsenal and Derby vs Fulham), and the third (SPAL vs Bologna) was rather ruined when the referee decided to send a Bologna player off in the first half. They subsequently lost 0-1.
Happily the weather is much better this week, and unless something incredibly unforeseen occurs we won’t be disrupted by snow and gale-force winds this weekend!

Arsenal vs Watford – Yes (8/13)
For essentially the same reasons as last time out, we’re backing Arsenal to face another tough day at the office here.
They lost three times in the space of seven days last week – surely a first for the Gunners in quite some time, and clearly all is not well in the camp. They retain an attacking intent, of sorts, but defensively they are a shambles.
Watford won’t be shy of taking advantage either. The Hornets have won three of their last four so confidence will not be in short supply, and their aggressive, physical and direct style is sure to unsettle Arsene Wenger’s men.
Millwall vs Brentford – Yes (4/6)
The key to successful BTTS betting is backing two sides that are either quality going forward or enjoying a current bubble of confidence, and this pair falls into those categories.
Both are within touching distance of the play-offs in the Championship, with Millwall currently on a ten-game unbeaten streak in which they have netted in nine.
Brentford possess plenty of goal power too, notching nine in their last four outings, and the fact they have won three of their last four means they won’t shrink under the scrutiny of playing at the ever-partisan New Den.
Preston vs Fulham – Yes (4/5)
Preston sold key frontman Jordan Hugill in the January window but it hasn’t harmed them too much; they have lost just one of their last ten and scored in nine of those.
Indeed, BTTS aficionados will already know that both teams have scored in nine of their last eleven outings.
Talk about a confident away team….Fulham are rocking at the moment. The Cottagers are unbeaten in fourteen and have won eleven of those; propelling them into the play-off places.
Incredibly, they have scored two or more goals in 11/14, and yet they have kept just one clean sheet on the road since August!
Bury vs Oldham – Yes (4/5)
This game is both a relegation six-pointer and a local derby, so there is plenty on the line as Bury entertain Oldham.
The hosts are in dire need of points; they are nine adrift of safety in League One, and time is running out for them to preserve their third tier status.
The Shakers will play on the front foot here then, and that could well play into the hands of an Oldham side with three wins in four and who have netted twice in each of that trio.
The visitors are typically poor on the road however (W1 D5 L5), and so Bury will surely chance their arm at three points here.
Stuttgart vs Leipzig – Yes (3/4)
With four wins on the spin, Stuttgart are full of beans at the moment and won’t fear the visit of Champions League outfit RB Leipzig this week.
The hosts had kept three clean sheets on the spin ahead of their trip to Koln at the weekend, and while they won 3-2 the hosts’ front foot approach unveiled Stuttgart’s defensive vulnerability for all to see.
This Leipzig side contains some fantastic attacking talent including Liverpool’s new man Naby Keita, and they have scored in an incredible 21 of 25 Bundesliga outings this term. They have notched in their last eleven to boot.
