Ingolstadt v Werder Bremen - 12/1 at Sky Bet - Saturday 14:30
Eleven points separate these two sides as relegation battlers Ingolstadt take on Werder Bremen at the Audi Sportpark on Saturday afternoon. Ingolstadt are four points from safety after an upturn in form, winning three of their last five league games, beating Augsburg, Darmstadt and Mainz - all three sides who occupy the bottom four position alongside Ingolstadt.
Werder Bremen sit 8th in the Bundesliga, just two points off the Europa League places after going their last nine league games unbeaten; winning seven. Werder Bremen should pick up the win considering their recent form but we're backing goals in this one.
Over 3.5 goals has featured in two of Ingolstadt's last three home games, netting seven goals in their last three at home and have kept just one clean sheet at home all season. Werder Bremen's last two away games has seen over 3.5 goals come in, drawing 2-2 at Frankfurt and winning 5-2 at Freiburg and have kept just one clean sheet in their last seven away games. BTTS in Both Halves looks a good shout here - 12/1 at Sky Bet.
Luton Town v Notts County - 14/1 at Sky Bet - Saturday 15:00
Luton Town sit 11 places above Notts County as they meet at Kenilworth Road on Saturday afternoon, however Notts County are in better form over the last five league games (W3 D1 L1) winning three and while Luton's form reads W2 D2 L1.
Luton will be disappointed in their last game at home, drawing 2-2 to bottom side Leyton Orient who look doomed for relegation to the Conference. However, Nathan Jones' side look assured of a Play-Off place as they're currently the in-form side of the teams that currently occupy the positions 4-7. Notts County looked in real trouble to go down between November and January, going 13 games without a win but since late January their form has picked up dramatically and have won five of their last eight league games.
Goals is what we're looking at in this game, Notts County have scored in nine of their last 10 league games with over 2.5 goals featured in their last four league games. Luton have kept just two clean sheets in their last eight league games at home and have scored in their last seven in League Two. BTTS in Both Halves - 14/1 at Sky Bet.

At Stamford Bridge, West Ham United travelled to Chelsea in a four-goal thriller with West Ham opening the scoring through Manuel Lanzini before Cesc Fabregas equalised. Andy Carroll looked to have scored the winner in the second half for the Hammers until Fabregas popped up again with a penalty to equal the tie, making it 2-2.

Back in September 2014, one punter with Sky Bet made a massive profit off this particular market, staking £1 on a Both Teams To Score In Both Halves treble which returned him over £6.8k!
The punter selected Fleetwood Town vs Bristol City, Doncaster Rovers vs Chesterfield and Northampton Town vs Accrington Stanley. Two games of the treble were in after 61 minutes, so he wasn't waiting too long until Ivan Toney scored the consolation goal against Accrington Stanley after 78 minutes.
While this treble could be seen as outlandish and a tad lucky, which an average price of 18/1 in most games in the top four English tiers, there are some great odds to be had if you can find the high scoring matches.
