It is back to the domestic leagues this weekend after the FA Cup entertained us all last week. It looks set to be another bumper couple of days across all four English divisions and as ever, there is some money to be won.
Last weekend, Sunderland were the only team to let me down in a bet that would have returned over £100, so we will be steering clear of their game this time out.
First up, I am going to go for a trusted fourfold to bring in some handy cash. They have done me well in the past and looking at some of the games this weekend, I think it might be the way to go.
So, without chatting too much about it – here it is.
Fulham v Wigan Athletic – Fulham @ 10/11
Cardiff City v Ipswich Town – Cardiff City @ 4/7
Tranmere Rovers v Crawley Town – Tranmere Rover @ 6/5
AFC Wimbledon v Wycombe Wanderers – AFC Wimbledon @ 6/4
If you put £5 on this fourfold, you are looking at a return of £82.50, which is pretty good value, I think you will agree?
It is a game from each division and I am backing four home teams in this one.
Fulham are always pretty strong at Craven Cottage and you never quite know what you are going to get from Wigan on their travels.
Then, Cardiff are flying and I expect them to turn Ipswich over quite convincingly.
Tranmere and AFC Wimbledon are quite tough to ignore at such good odds, especially as both have played well on home soil this campaign.
Now it is time to try and make a big some of cash and again it is going to be a fourfold, but this time, it is all about the away teams.
As you know, the visiting side always offers good value, so here are the four teams I expect to do the business on their travels in the Premier League and Championship.
Reading v West Bromwich Albion – West Bromwich Albion @ 11/8
Sunderland v West Ham United – West Ham United @ 2/1
Bolton Wanderers v Millwall – Millwall @ 5/2
Brighton & Hove Albion v Derby County – Derby County @ 11/4
£5 on this one will give you winnings of £476.58, so it would certainly be an afternoon to remember.
As always, there are a couple of risks with this one, but all four of these teams selected are in a decent bit of form and fairly strong on the road.
The two Premier League clubs, West Brom and West Ham, always travel well and should claim all three points if at their best.
Then, Millwall’s league position suggests they are stronger than Bolton and Brighton v Derby is quite evenly matched, so it can go either way.
I know you want a bit of an outside tip on the early kick-off between Queens Park Rangers and Tottenham Hotspur, so here it is. I like the look of Gareth Bale scoring first and Tottenham winning 3-1, which is at 45/1.
Good luck with your football accumulator bets this weekend and let us know how you go on!
