Sporting Life Goals Accumulators: Both teams to score, BTTS in both halves & over 2.5 goals coupons

Check out our goals accas for the opening day of the season
Check out our goals accas for the opening day of the season

We've selected accumulators for three popular goals coupons ahead of Saturday's football action in the Sky Bet EFL.

We've analysed Saturday's football and targeted the games where we think the goals will flow as we try nail accumulators in the 'both teams to score' and 'over 2.5 goals coupons' with Sky Bet.

Our two most confident selections we're throwing into a 'both teams to score in both halves' double for a potentially big payout.

Both teams to score acca

Bristol City v Nottingham Forest

Sky Bet Championship matches at Ashton Gate saw 69 goals scored in 2017-18 – only Hull’s KC Stadium saw more (73) – and although that was boosted nicely by 15 in the last two (!), this game looks a potentially thriller to me between two sides who have high hopes for the season ahead.

Ipswich v Blackburn

Blackburn were full of goals in League One and shouldn't be expected to be out of their depth here but Ipswich will be keen to make a positive start at home under new boss Paul Hurst.

Wigan v Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday finished pretty strongly at the end of last season, collecting 20 points from the final 10 games while League One champions Wigan should fancy their chances of scoring having bagged 89 of them last season.

Peterborough v Bristol Rovers

Peterborough have made an incredible 14 signings so far during the summer transfer window and will be looking at making a flying start while Bristol Rovers will want to prove they have play-off credentials.

Portsmouth v Luton

Pompey have lofty aspirations after just missing out on the play-offs last season but this could be a high-scoring opening test as they host an attacking Luton side who are well fancied to make it back-to-back promotions.

West Brom v Bolton

This could potentially be a bit ugly for a Bolton side who haven't exactly had a summer to write home about and the joys of their last-gasp survival last season could be a distant memory by full-time on Saturday.
