The sweaty international shirt is cast aside and the crisp, freshly ironed club top goes back on as we look to Swansea City v Wigan Athletic, West Ham United v Southampton and Queens Park Rangers v Everton to boost our weekend betting balances.
As with many recent trebles, we hit two out of three in our international Goals Galore last week, with Estonia v Hungary letting us down, but fear not, because this time around we’ve gone for three teams who are fast becoming mainstays of GG – mostly thanks to their terrible defences – but their attacks aren’t half bad either.
If you want to make these games feel like Champions League finals (and who’s to say Wigan won’t make it one day?) then why not lump the free £20 bet you receive for registering with bwin on this treble and give yourself a chance of winning £122.39 to keep you warm in these autumn months.
Over 2.5 goals in Swansea City v Wigan Athletic @ 87/100
|Bayern Munich win||£34.00||(7/10)|
Yep, it’s Wigan again. Only one of their three away games this season has featured three or more goals, but I can still smell the enticing 14 from 19 they recorded last season on the road.
On top of that, this weekend they head to a Swansea side who have seen over 2.5 goals scored in all four of their clashes at the Liberty Stadium thus far.
Michael Laudrup’s men have had 23 goals feature in their seven games this season, while the Latics have collected a slightly more modest 20, scoring only seven.
However, with both teams having a tendency to concede at the moment – and especially considering the Swans’ potency up top with the likes of Michu – this one was a relatively easy pick.

Over 2.5 goals in West Ham v Southampton @ 3/4
Oh, Southampton. Your inability to stop conceding goals is beautifully dovetailed by your knack of scoring plenty at the right end too. How I have fallen for you.
Nigel Adkins’ side have had a pretty eventful start to their return to the top flight, scoring 12 times, while leaking an alarming 20 in their seven games so far.
The Hammers have actually scored four less than their visitors, despite sitting nine places higher in the table, probably due to the fact they have conceded 12 less than the Saints.
However, two of their four matches at Upton Park have featured three or more strikes and with Andy Carroll back from injury to partner his buddy Kevin Nolan, there could well be more goals than bubbles on Saturday.

Over 2.5 goals in QPR v Everton @ 87/100
Finally we come to the 4pm Sunday game (always a nice way to round off a weekend) as QPR entertain in-form Everton.
The Hoops have featured prominently in GG this season, with five of their seven games to date coming up with over 2.5 goals.
David Moyes’ side haven’t exactly been shy either, with the same record to their name and three of four away games producing the goods.
With talent such as Djibril Cisse, Adel Taraabt, Esteban Granero, Steven Pienaar and Nikica Jelavic on show, expect the goal music button at Loftus Road to see plenty of action in this one (not even sure they have goal music, so if not just play some Gangnam Style to yourself, but don’t do the dance).
