There’s nothing that quite says Christmas than a whole host of football matches on Boxing Day.
With a quiet few days prior to Christmas Day, it’s a football punters heaven with fixtures kicking off throughout the afternoon from England’s Premier League, Championship, League One and League Two.
It’s often a day full of drama and shock results, and that regularly means plenty of goals from all the sides in action.
For that reason, we’ve taken a look at the both teams to score betting and flagged up some matches that could see exactly that.
Leicester City v Manchester United
With Leicester City currently sitting second in the table and Manchester United only a point and place behind them in third, there’s plenty on the table when these two sides meet at the King Power Stadium on Boxing Day.
Both teams are blessed with firepower in the attacking ranks but often leave something to be desired when it comes to keeping in tight at the back. That promises an open affair that could resemble a basketball match with each side counter attacking the other.
Leicester have netted 26 times in 14 Premier League games this season, with United scoring 28 in 13. That makes it look a great bet, and along with the selections on 101greatgoals football tips page, this game being BTTS looks something of a banker.
Both Teams To Score @ 3/5
Blackburn Rovers v Sheffield Wednesday
Elsewhere in the North West on Boxing Day, there’s a Lancashire versus Yorkshire clash at Ewood Park as Blackburn Rovers play host to Sheffield Wednesday.
The two sides have had differing fortunes so far this season with Rovers in the top half of the table and Wednesday currently holding one of the regulation spots.
However, as betting punters in the Championship will know, there’s often not too much between each side and with Sheff Wed winning at Coventry recently, they’ll be confident of putting up a fighting performance in East Lancashire.
Both teams have scored in four of the last five meetings, and there’s been some cracking result in that time including two 4-2’s. In that same period, there’s been no less than 23 goals scored between the two sides, which works out to be an average of 4.6 goals a game.
Both Teams To Score @ 19/20
Crewe Alexandra v Fleetwood Town
League One always throws up plenty of interesting ties and none fit that statement any better on Boxing Day than Crewe Alexandra against Fleetwood Town.
Only a point separates them in the table, with Crewe in 9th and Fleetwood in 10th. Between them, they have already netted over 45 times this season, while conceding close to 40 at the other end.
When it comes to both teams scoring, these two sides are a BTTS punters dream, because that has happened in three of the last five meetings between the pair.
It’s also happened in Crewe’s last five games in League One, while Fleetwood scored and conceded in the 1-1 draw with Wigan last time.
Both Teams To Score @ 13/15
Carlisle United v Bolton Wanderers
It’s perhaps a fixture that doesn’t fill Bolton Wanderers fans with joy, because its less than 10 years ago that the Trotters were in the Premier League, yet they arrive at Boxing Day 2020 with only nine places below them in the entire Football League.
Carlisle, though, are dreaming of the big time themselves, and are sitting pretty in third place with a win on Boxing Day possibly propelling them into top spot.
Both sides have the ammunition to score goals as well as conceding them, so that could open up something of a goal fest. Wanderers have scored in each of their last four away matches, while Carlisle have netted 11 in their last five games at Brunton Park.
