The fourth round of the FA Cup is the focal point for Saturday's both teams to score tips with a couple of Football League games thrown in for good measure.
Sheffield Wednesday and MK Dons were the only teams to let us down last weekend but we've had one clean sweep this season and been one goal short on 10 occasions, so we're on the right track.

- West Ham vs West Brom 8/11
- Burnley vs Norwich 4/5
- Millwall vs Sheffield United 19/20
- Ipswich vs Lincoln 1/1
- Exeter vs Colchester 9/10

And if you like the look of our BTTS tips today, combining all our BTTS predictions into a five-fold will pay 22/1.
Both teams to score predictions: January 25
We go west for the first of our BTTS tips today as West Ham face Championship leaders West Brom at the London Stadium with a potential shock on the cards.
The Hammers have bigger fish to fry than the FA Cup as they look to claw themselves away from the relegation zone.
Manager David Moyes picked a strong side for the 2-0 win at Gillingham but that was before taking one point from three successive league games which has left them outside the Premier League relegation zone on goal difference.
The east Londoners were in action on Wednesday night, losing 4-1 at Leicester, so changes are possible for their clash with a team that have scored and conceded in 20 of their 28 matches this season - the highest in the Championship.
Admittedly, the majority of those have come at The Hawthorns (12 from 14), but they have only once failed to score away from home this season and will feel confident of doing so again against a potentially weakened side.
An exciting game is in prospect and so 8/11 on both teams to score is the first of our goals galore tips.
Both teams reached the fourth round with 4-2 victories against lower-league opposition and we're expecting goals at both ends as the next of our BTTS tips.
Jay Rodriguez scored twice as the Clarets saw off Peterborough, while Irish teenager Adam Idah went one better by bagging a hat-trick for the Canaries at Preston in only his second start for the club.
Norwich and Burnley made eight changes for their third-round ties, so we're not too concerned the Lancastrians won 2-0 when they met at Turf Moor in the Premier League.
City have developed a healthy habit of scoring in 11 of their last 13 games and with Sean Dyche and Daniel Farke expected to ring the changes once more, both teams to score looks a decent option at close to evens.
The Lions have scored in all 15 home games this season, nine of which involved goals at both ends, so even though they are up against Premier League opposition we're happy to have them on board as one of our BTTS tips.

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder made 11 changes for the 2-1 win against National League side AFC Fylde, but we suspect he will put out a much stronger team for the trip to south London.
The Blades have drawn and scored in all four trips to the capital this season, an impressive record bearing in mind their opponents were Tottenham, Chelsea, Arsenal and West Ham, but with a potentially weaker outfit facing Gary Rowett's side, both teams to score seems like a solid pick.
We could not resist jumping on Ipswich and Lincoln to produce goals at both ends as the fourth leg of our BTTS predictions.
League One promotion-chasers Ipswich have faced the Imps three times this season, drawing 1-1 in the FA Cup before winning the replay 1-0 at Sincil Bank and losing 5-3 at the same ground in their last match of 2019.
This weekend's best bets
If you're interested in football accumulators, check out our regular betting columns:
Lincoln have scored in their last six matches, five of which produced goals at both ends, and although the Tractor Boys have the joint meanest defence in League One they have conceded in five of their last seven games at Portman Road.
With two of the three games between the teams producing goals at both ends, it makes sense to include this match as one of our both teams to score tips today at evens.
We wrap up our both teams to score predictions in League Two where Exeter and Colchester should produce the goods.
The teams shared a 2-2 draw when they met at the JobServe Community Stadium just after Christmas, although admittedly the Grecians have kept three clean sheets since then.

The Us have proved to be reliable on the road lately, scoring and conceding in five of their last six matches, with their only failure bizarrely coming in a goalless draw at Stevenage, who had a man sent off in the 19th minute.
We're more encouraged by their other performances on the road in which they scored 10 times during those half a dozen trips, so both teams to find the net is the last of our BTTS tips.
