Sky Blues' goal struggle to continue

Bet 1: Back Under 2.5 Goals in Oxford v Coventry @ 4/5 - KO 12:00 BST

It's an early start for us today as I can't see many goals when Coventry travel to Oxford this lunchtime.

The Sky Blues have struggled massively to put the ball in the net since top-scorer, Mark McNulty, left the club in the summer, and that has resulted in their games averaging just 1.5 goals each time - with five of their six seeing this selection land.

At the other end of the scale are Oxford, who's matches are averaging a whopping 3.67 goals per 90 minutes, but it is still worth noting that two of their six have gone under 2.5.

Mark Robins will know that he can't afford to go toe-to-toe with the hosts, so I expect a defensive performance from the Sky Blues.

No clean sheets in Sweden

Bet 2: Back BTTS in Degefors v AFC United @ 8/11 - KO 15:00 BST

This is a Swedish Superettan fixture which is the second tier of Swedish football. It isn't the most glamorous match in the world, but I do strongly fancy goals at both ends.

Degefors have scored 32 and conceded 33 in 21 appearances this season, and their matches are averaging 3.1 goals each time. They come into this game on a run of eight on the bounce seeing both teams score - seven of which were in the league.

The visitors are AFC United, and they are pushing for promotion, as they currently occupy third place. They have scored 30 goals of their own this year, but they have a much better defensive record with only 10 against.

That being said, I do like the fact that they have scored in both of their last two away games, and the hosts should set the tone here, making it quite an open affair.

New era of German football to produce goals

Bet 3: Back Over 2.5 Goals in Germany v Peru @ 4/6 - KO 19:45 BST

It's quite the surprise that Joachim Löw is still in charge of the German side following their disastrous World Cup, but that's the situation we find ourselves in and it has to be noted that most of his squad have made a really strong start to the season - the Bayern players in-particular.

There are always usually goals with Germany involved, and although the same can't be said for Peru, they did look dangerous going forward during the World Cup, they just didn't finish their chances well enough.

Three goals shouldn't be an issue during this game as the Germans are quite capable of racking up four or five themselves.
