Saturday 3pm is accumulator heaven. I have picked out five teams playing across the Premier League, Championship, League One and Scottish League Two who look like great value to win. I have provided some reasoning behind each selection below to give you an understanding as to why I have gone for them.
Bet365 have a great sign up offer which you could take advantage of this weekend. They are currently offering up to £100 in Bet Credits for new customers. Sign up, deposit a minimum of £5, and they will match your qualifying deposit in Bet Credits (up to £100) when you place qualifying bets to the same value, and they are settled.
One of the huge benefits of having a Bet365 account is their early payout offer. If a team that you have backed goes two goals ahead, the selection will be settled as a winner, even if they happen to throw away their lead later in the match.
This offer applies to some of the major leagues in Europe, including the Premier League and Championship here in England. 3/5 of my accumulator selections are from those leagues so if you place my 5-fold on Bet365, you could see how the early payout offer can benefit you.
Leicester have been nothing short but sensational this season. Every week goes by and they just get better and better to watch. They’re deservedly sitting 2nd in the Premier League with a solid record so far this season (P12, W14, D3, L4) and have also managed to get to the semi-finals of the league cup.
The reverse fixture saw Leicester set a record for the largest ever away victory in the Premier League era as they ran riot at Saint Mary’s winning 9-0. Southampton’s results in recent weeks have picked up, but I believe there’s far too much quality in Leicester side for the Saints to pick up anything here.
Brendan Rodgers has no injury issues to his starting XI ahead of the game meaning Jamie Vardy, who is the leagues top goalscorer so far this season with an incredible 17 goals to his name and the best conversion rate in the league (35%) is expected to start alongside James Maddison, Youri Tielemans and Ayoze Perez who have all been exceptional.
Newcastle United have been awful, to say the least in recent weeks. An abysmal second-half display against League One side Rochdale in the FA Cup at the weekend has forced an unwanted replay for the Tuesday after this game. They’ve lost all three of their recent league matches managing only 23% possession last time out.
Wolves haven’t been at their best in recent weeks but are their strongest when they play at Molleniux having only suffered three defeats there in their last 20 games in all competitions. I fully expect them to pick up three points against a struggling Newcastle side.
Middlesbrough looked like a team destined for relegation when the two sides last met back in November but what a turn-around Jonathan Woodgate and his team have produced. Four league wins on the bounce, including away wins against 2nd placed West Brom and home form table-toppers Preston was followed by a hard-fought 1-1 draw with José Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup at the weekend.
Boro have also strengthened well so far in this transfer window bringing in winger Partick Roberts and forward Lukas Nmecha who will provide extra energy in attack.
Derby meanwhile have lost 8/12 of their recent away games in all competitions and will come here knowing that it will be hard to beat this Boro side who have a lot of momentum going for them at the moment.
One glance to the league table and you will wonder why I have picked this bet however, there’s so much more than meets the eye than just the league table with this one.
League leaders Wycombe are in terrible form coming into this game. Their last win came nearly a month ago against Burton and since then they’ve gone on to lose 3/4 of their league games.
In contrast, Sunderland’s form and performances have massively picked up in recent weeks after a spell without a win. Two wins and a draw in their last three league games has lifted them back to within one point of the top six and that will have done wonders for the player’s confidence.
City are flying at the moment. After five wins on the bounce, including a stunning 2-1 win over leaders Cove, they’re now 12 points ahead of 3rd placed Cowdenbeath and have now closed the gap with Cove to just two points. They have also managed to keep a clean sheet in all four of their recent games.
Queen’s Park meanwhile have lost six out of seven of their last away league matches and by all accounts, put out a poor performance last Saturday against struggling Stenhousemuir.
