We are creeping up to the weekend again, so it means one thing and one thing only – it is football accumulator time.
If I’m honest, last weekend was not a good one for my accumulators and after speaking to a lot of people that had bets on – I was not alone.
I did however, tip West Ham United to win and James Collins to score – although Collins didn’t find the net, hopefully a few of you backed the Hammers at good odds.
Anyway, enough about last weekend, let’s look ahead instead and see where we can make some money this time out.
I am going to start off with a bit of a different style on my first bet, and back two draws in the Premier League.
There have been a lot of stalemates recently and as we enter the busy Christmas period, I expect there to be many, many more.
These are those two games:
Aston Villa v Stoke City – Draw @ 9/4
Swansea City v Norwich City – Draw @ 14/5
Considering you are only relying on two games here, I think putting on £5 and getting a return of £58.50 is a cracking bit of value.
Villa always appear to be a bit nervy on their own turf and I think Stoke might come here with a point on their mind. Any away draw in the top flight is a good one and Paul Lambert’s side might struggle to break them down.
Swansea are flying at the moment, I know, but Norwich have not been beaten in nine across all competitions and are on a good run themselves.
The Canaries have a good record against the Welsh side as well, so I expect a stalemate here.
Onto accumulator number two – where I am looking at away teams that I fancy to give their fans’ an early Christmas present. As always, there is cracking value on a visiting side and some serious money to be won.
Sunderland v Chelsea – Chelsea @ 4/5
Peterborough United v Middlesbrough – Middlesbrough @ 1/1
Watford v Hull City – Hull City @ 15/8
Brentford v MK Dons – MK Dons @ 7/5
Plymouth Argyle v York City – York City 6/4
Stick £3 on these away wonders and then you will be looking at a return of £186.30.
Although Chelsea are struggling in the league, I expect them to claim all three points at a Sunderland side that don’t look great at the minute.
Peterborough are a poor outfit this season and I think Middlesbrough are far too strong for them, much like MK Dons have too much for Brentford to cope with.
Hull and York might be the risks here – but they have the quality to claim all three points.
What’s that?! You want another one of my big game tips for the weekend? Go on then. So it is the small matter of the Manchester derby on Sunday afternoon and I am anticipating a thriller.
A 3-2 win for City at 28/1, so as Ray Winston would say: ‘Have a bang on that’.
Good luck with your bets this weekend and remember to let us at GYBO know how you got on!
Accumulator Tip #16 – If you are placing more than one bet – go with different games, that way, one shock result might not cost you quite as much!
