We love a goals bet and none better that back a team to score 2 or more.
Odds on this bet are generally similar (although often slightly shorter) to those available on a team to win so this is a good alternative bet if you fancy a side to get a win, but maybe worried about them losing a late goal that scuppers your bet. As long as they score 2 or more goals you team is a Winner.
So here’s a look at today’s Boxing Day fixtures and 5 teams we’re backing to be amongst the goals.
Boro have been massively unreliable to back this season. 4th in the table with 13 wins isn’t bad going but 8 defeats mean they’re a side you want to steer clear of backing. However when it comes to scoring goals they’ve been pretty consistent especially at home. They’ve netted in all 11 matches at the Riverside and scored 2 or more in 9 of those. Up against a desperate looking Blackburn side they should be able to grab a couple again today.
Thistle boast a 100% record at Firhill and a win against promotion rivals will cement their claims for a long-awaited return to the SPL. Both teams are in form and have scored a total of 30 goals between them in their last 6 games. Jackie McNamara’s side look the best in the division and I think can get the win today. Either way I’m looking for them to score 2 or more – something they’ve done in all 8 home games so far.
I’d never have though Caley would be top goal-scorers in the SPL by Christmas but with an amazing 42 goals they’re 5 ahead of Celtic. They’ve scored in all but one league games this season, only drawing a blank at Celtic Park. In-form Billy McKay is the leagues top scorer with 18 goals and a win should be on the cards for Terry Butcher’s men against 3rd from bottom St Mirren. Let’s hope they can keep the goal-scoring form going.
Partick Thistle 5/6
Inverness Caley Thistle 8/11
