BTTS tips: Bluebirds and Boro in 23/1 acca
Saturday gives us the chance to bounce back from Tuesday's disappointing both teams to score tips in which only two of the six matches obliged.
Sunderland came in as usual in a 1-1 draw with Rotherham but this weekend they are travelling to Bolton who have scored just one goal in seven since they were thrown together on transfer deadline day, so we are tempted to swerve them as part of our six-fold acca.
Saturday's BTTS predictions combined as a football acca come to just over 23/1 and also qualify for a 15% bonus thanks to the BetStars acca bonus.

And if you like the look of our BTTS tips, combining all our BTTS predictions into a six-fold will pay just over 23/1.
Both teams to score predictions: September 21
Cardiff's return to the Championship has been far from easy and with just two wins from their first seven matches they find themselves just below Middlesbrough in the lower half of the table.
However, their both teams to score performances have been well above average with five of their matches seeing goals at both ends, including all three at the Cardiff City Stadium.
Boro have had a couple of high-scoring draws in their three away games and the stats show they are in the top 10 for shots taken and allowed in the Championship, so this match has all the the right ingredients to start our BTTS tips.
Luton are proving to be consistent both teams to score performers in the Championship with six of their seven matches seeing goals at both ends.
The Hatters have been perfect at Kenilworth Road, starting the season with a 3-3 draw against Middlesbrough followed by a 2-1 defeat by West Brom and a win against Huddersfield by the same scoreline, while their last outing was a 3-2 loss at QPR.
Luton's goal is peppered with an average of 16.3 shots per game, the worst in the Championship, so it's no wonder they have failed to keep a clean sheet this season, but they are the third highest scorers with 12 goals.
The Tigers have also failed to keep a clean sheet this season and only one of their seven matches has failed to produce goals at both ends, so we're happy to bring this match on board as one of our goals galore tips.
Wimbledon's season of struggle in League One continued on Tuesday with a 2-1 defeat against Coventry which extended their winless run to nine games, but as BTTS tips they are the best in the division with eight of their games seeing goals at both ends.
The Dons take the third fewest number of shots per game with an average of 9.6, but they still manage to find their way to goal.
This weekend's best bets
If you're interested in football accumulators, check out our regular betting columns:
Bristol Rovers lost their first three away games 2-0 and last Saturday won 1-0 at Lincoln, so none of their away days would have been successful as BTTS predictions but that could change against the division's fourth leakiest defence.
This fixture finished 1-1 last season, so we have reasonable expectations this match could prove successful as the next of our both teams to score tips today.
The all-Lancashire League One duel between Accrington and Blackpool is the next of our both to score predictions for Saturday.
Accrington are set for another relegation battle but they - like Blackpool - are among the best in the division for scoring and conceding.
All three of Accrington's home games have seen goals at both ends and they are yet to keep a clean sheet all season, while the Seasiders have the fifth highest average for shots on their goal.
The Tangerines got back on track with a 1-0 win at Doncaster on Tuesday, but three of their five away games would have paid out as BTTS tips so we advise punters to get on board.
Crawley are the kings of the road in League Two when it comes to both teams to score, with all four their away matches hitting the bull's-eye this season.
The Reds drew 2-2 at Scunthorpe and won 3-2 at Leyton Orient in August so they seem to enjoy a ding-dong battle on their travels and they are runaway leaders in shots on goal throughout the division with an average of 17.8.
The Cobblers are shy when it comes to taking shots but they have scored in their last four matches so they make the cut with our BTTS tips today.
We wrap up our both teams to score predictions with the National League clash between Aldershot and Wrexham, teams that have been consistent in scoring and conceding this season.
The Welsh side's last six matches have seen goals at both ends and they have scored and conceded in all four away games this season.
The Shots also have a decent record, especially at home where only one of their five games has failed to deliver and they have kept just one clean sheet all season - just like Wrexham.
