The wait is over! The Football League returns on Friday evening after a long action-less summer!
For the new campaign we will be frequently placing five tips into numerous treble bets, ensuring that one failure won’t cost us a tidy profit.
For more information on how our betting plan for the majority of the campaign will work, see the bottom of the article.
For this weekend’s action we have gone with both teams to score in the below five fixtures.
Bristol City vs. Barnsley
Two sides who have lost key players this summer meet in their first game of the campaign on Saturday as Barnsley travel to Bristol City.
Both teams scored and conceded over 60 goals last term and this feels like a safe bet for the opening fixture.
Fulham vs. Norwich City
Both Fulham and Norwich City will be looking to secure at least a top six spot this Championship season.
Fulham have managed to keep both Tom Cairney and Ryan Sessegnon at the club, whilst Tomas Kalas and Lucas Piazon have re-signed on loan deals.
Norwich are among the favourites and have followed the recent trend of appointing German managers, with Daniel Farke taking over.
Along with Newcastle United, these two sides were the joint top scorers last year and expect a decent return of goals here.
Doncaster vs. Gillingham
Doncaster and Gillingham go into the new season hoping to avoid a battle against the drop.
Donny were promoted from League Two last year, whilst Gillingham finished one place above the relegation zone.
Goals are expected here and this fixture is our third both teams to score bet.
Peterborough vs. Plymouth
Peterborough usually are excellent for both teams to score bets and they entertain Plymouth in the opening League One fixture.
Plymouth earned promotion from League One last year, scoring nearly goals a game in the process.
Carlisle vs. Swindon Town
Two sides who are expected to be in contention for at least a play-off spot meet in the League Two opener as Carlisle host Swindon.
Carlisle were the go to team for goals last year in League Two, scoring and conceding close to 70 goals.
Both teams to score seems a safe bet here for the opening game.
Treble bet explanation
Below is an rough image of our betting plan and how they work. Five singles are collated into 10 trebles all at a £5 stake, resulting in a sum £50 bet.
If 0-2 of the five single bets come in then all the £50 will be lost. If just one treble is made (three singles) then expect an on average 50% loss on the stake.
On average to ensure a 100% profit return, four of the five tips need to come in, as four of the 10 trebles would land.
Should we produce a clean sweep, then approximately a tidy 250% profit will be returned.
