Both teams to score tips: Dortmund can help deliver high five in season finale
Odds, preview and both teams to score tips
With just a handful of matches in the UK on Saturday, including the FA Cup final between Chelsea and Liverpool, our both teams to score tips are taken from the National League, Bundesliga and Ligue 1.
We have five BTTS selections, starting with the clash between Borussia Dortmund and Hertha Berlin which can be backed at 2/5.
Borussia Dortmund v Hertha Berlin
Dortmund finished runner-up for the third time in four years as they prepare for their final game of the season against Hertha Berlin, who overcame a half-time deficit to win 3-2 when the teams met in the week before Christmas.

Marco Rose’s side are also flying high at the top of the both teams to score table with an impressive 76% record having kept just seven clean sheets this season.
Their last four games have involved goals at both ends, including a 4-3 home defeat by Bochum, so we have no hesitation in starting our BTTS tips with their match against Hertha Berlin, who need a point to guarantee they avoid the relegation play-offs.
Stuttgart v FC Koln
Stuttgart occupy that relegation play-off spot, three points behind Hertha Berlin but with a far greater goal difference than their rivals.
Koln have the third best BTTS record in the Bundesliga and four of their past five games have paid out in this market, so with Stuttgart having drawn 2-2 with Bayern Munich last time out, this match makes the cut in our both teams to score tips at 4/11.
Maidenhead v Notts County
The next two of our both teams to score tips come from the National League and start with the clash between Maidenhead and Notts County, who may rest players having qualified for the play-off quarter-finals where they are likely to meet Grimsby.

The Magpies are the joint-best BTTS performers in the fifth tier and Maidenhead are in the top five at home, although their last three games overall have involved goals at both ends, including a 3-1 win at Grimsby, so we’ll add this match to our five-fold at 1/2.
Eastleigh v Grimsby
Grimsby have also secured a place in the quarter-finals so Paul Hurst is likely to take the chance to rest some of his key players at Eastleigh who will end the season fifth from bottom with victory on Saturday.
Eastleigh’s last four games have been high-scoring affairs, including a 3-3 draw with King’s Lynn, but they also lost 2-1 at home to Halifax, who are also in the play-offs.
Against a weakened team, we fancy the hosts to score and concede at 7/10 bearing in mind they have kept just seven clean sheets all season.
St Etienne v Reims
We wrap up our both teams to score tips in Ligue 1 where St Etienne are fighting for their lives to avoid the drop.
St Etienne are third from bottom and will be involved in a relegation play-off if they remain in 18th spot after the final two games, so they have to go for it against Reims.
The hosts have the joint-best BTTS record in the division, with seven of their last eight paying out, so we’re on board this match at 7/10 to conclude our preview.
