Our selections last time out saw twenty goals scored across the five games to see our three ‘Yes’ selections land with relative ease.
The downside to this goal fest is that both teams scored in our ‘No’ selections. Bahia scored for the first time in 5 games and Brommapojkarna took just 18 minutes to break their 3 match goal drought before going on to lose 5-1 against league leaders AIK.
Not to be perturbed we’ll crack on with this week’s both teams to score betting tips.
|Match||Both Teams to Score Yes/No||Odds|
|Orlando City vs New York City||Yes||4/9|

|Dalkurd FF vs FK Sirius||Yes||8/13|
|Sevilla vs Ujpesti||No||4/9|
|Hibernian vs Asteras Tripolis||Yes||4/6|
|All Five Results as an Accumulator||6.86/1|
Orlando City vs New York City – Yes (4/9)
There have been signs of improvement from Orlando City of late, which suggests new boss James O’Connor has hit upon a decent formula.
A 2-1 win over Toronto was followed by a 2-3 defeat at Columbus, and so they are at least starting to find the net again; no surprise with Dom Dwyer in the starting eleven.
But their defensive woes persist, and have been exacerbated by injuries to first choice goalkeepers Mason Stajhudar and Earl Edwards.
New York City have injury concerns over David Villa, Jo-Inge Berget and Ismael Tajouri, but it doesn’t seem to matter: the Big Apple outfit have scored two or more goals in four of their last five outings.
Los Angeles FC vs LA Galaxy – Yes (2/5)
Cometh the hour, cometh the man.
The Los Angeles derby may not have been high up on Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s to-do list in football, but the Galaxy frontman will be looking to extend his own personal scoring form of nine goals in his last seven MLS outings.
His side have blitzed ten goals in their last three outings, so it’s not as if the Swede is solely responsible for their output.
But then only Atlanta United have scored more goals this term than Los Angeles FC, who could operate a high-class front four of Adama Diomande, Carlos Vela, Diego Rossi and Latif Blessing if they wanted to. That quartet has blasted 27 goals between them in 20 games this term.
Dalkurd FF vs FK Sirius – Yes (8/13)
The worst defensive outfits in the Swedish Allsvenskan meet this week, and the fun part is that neither are slouches in attack.
Dalkurd may prop up the table but they have still notched a healthy 18 in 14, including a ratio of two per game on average at home. They last failed to score in a game anywhere back in mid-May; seven outings ago.
Sirius boast the worst defensive record in the Swedish top flight, but coming into this game on the back of two wins they will at least be confident of putting the ball in the net themselves.
Sevilla vs Ujpesti – No (4/9)
Sevilla kick off their Europa League campaign with this qualification match against Hungarian minnows Ujpesti.
The hosts have bags of experience in continental football, and you suspect here they will pass their opponents to death; barely giving them a sniff of the ball.
Ujpesti aren’t prolific goalscorers by any means, and indeed only mustered 41 in 33 domestic outings last season.
Hibernian vs Asteras Tripolis – Yes (4/6)
Hibernian won their first round European League qualification match 12-5 on aggregate against NSI, and that hefty scoreline won’t come as a surprise to anyone that has witnessed the Scots play under Neil Lennon.
The 5-5 draw with Rangers on the last day of the 2017/18 season was evidence of that, and all told BTTS landed in 26/38 Scottish Premiership matches the Hibees were involved in.
We don’t know a huge amount about Asteras Tripolis, but Tottenham fans may recall the Greek outfit scoring home and away against them in this competition back in 2014/15. Since then they have also netted in European competition against the likes of Besiktas and APOEL, so a trip to Edinburgh will hold no fear.
And if you needed further persuasion, they have a player in their squad called Wankewai Rooney. So there’s always that.
