SBB Football Accumulator
Everyone can find a winner in a weekend on the football coupons but that elusive 5 or 6 results for an accumulator and big pay day always has the one that lets you down.
The SBB team will each put up 1 selection per week on the football although not below 1.5 in price and we will see if 5 or 6 minds, looking at different ways of selecting a result could pay dividends.
We made a 10pt profit last year and hope to keep that going this year.
This accumulator is deemed complete at time of posting
This Week’s Selections
Game 1 – Gecko
Barnsley v Sheff Wed (England, 12:15) – Both Teams To Score (BTTS)
Fancy Barnsley to win this game at good odds (probably!) and also will take them on the AH -0.5 but there is also some value in the BTTS for me so will go that one – both teams are ensconced in the bottom 3 but Barnsley have shown signs of a revival, beating Boro last week 3-2 at home and playing well in a draw and defeat against top sides QPR and Reading. Wednesday have drawn 7 of their last 8 and their low league position is due to this – they have also drawn 6 of those 7 1-1 so correct score bettors may like that. Wed can score here (have scored in all 6 away matches) and Barnsley I am sure will.. I think the hosts are on an upward spiral and will win 2-1 but as their visitors aren’t as bad as their league position suggests, then BTTS is the best option here for me
Game 2 – Darylrogerson
Crystal Palace Vs Arsenal (England, 12:45) – Arsenal (Handicap -1)
Palace are somehow not bottom of the league by virtue of an even poorer Sunderland who they beat to claim their only points so far this season. They haven’t shown anything of the ‘promotion factor’ that sees new teams pick up points and have lost 7 of their 8 league games and got knocked out of the League Cup in their first game by Bristol City who currently sit rock bottom of League One having not won a league game this season from 12 attempts. To say Palace are in bad form is an understatement. Arsenal are top of the league and the naivety that has plagued them reared its ugly head once more when losing at home to Dortmund in midweek, however they have been making light work of the lesser teams in the Premier League and I expect them to win this comfortably against a team that has lost their last 5 games all by 2 goals or more.
Game 3 – Jaydubs
Aston Villa v Everton (England, 15:00) – Match Result (DRAW)
Villa have not had the greatest start to their season seeing them meet Arsenal, Chelsea, Man City and Spurs in the opening 8 games while Everton have had the luxury of just 2 of the top 10 in the first 8 games. This probably leads to a little false positioning, however neither has really set the league alight although both have had some good results there have been some poor ones mixed in. The indifference lead me to start looking at the draw. 4 of the last 5 between the two have ended in draws while of the last 7 at Villa 4 have been draws with 2 home wins and 1 away win. Its not often I like the draw but I just can’t see any side dominating here.
Game 4 – gghofman
Burnley v QPR (England, 15:00) – Under 2.5 goals
So its a top of the table clash in the championship, both sides keep it quiet tight. Both teams have a 3:1 ratio for goals scored to conceded. QPR have been especially tight at home likely due to a sense of caution as the result is more important than how they get their. QPR has a 2-2 last time v Millwall but all the other games have been unders on the road this season. Burnley has been just over the line with 3 goals in their last 3 but QPR is a different challenge.
Game 5 – Wheatmann
Leicester v Bournemouth (England, 15:00) – Match Result (HOME WIN)
I fancy Leicester to continue their strong start to the season and win this game at reasonable odds – also like the over 2.5 goals and BTTS bets as think there could be a few goals in this one; B/mouth with 25 goals in 6 away games this term and Leicester have won their last 5 home matches
Game 6 – Zipster
Reading Vs Millwall (England, 15:00) – Match Result (HOME WIN)
Reading have a solid record when coming up against Millwall, from fourteen matches they have gone on to success nine times which is a 64% win strike rate, been in decent form with four wins from their last six league games and although Millwall have picked up of late and have recorded three wins in their last six games the fact that Reading are at home and have such a good record against the visitor this has to be a home win for me.
Game 7 – Seamusshanley
Tottenham v Hull City (England, 16:00, Sunday) – Tottenham -1.5 goals
Spurs go into this match on the back of a 2-0 win at Sheriff while resting Andros Townsend, Paulinho and Kyle Walker for this match. Hull are missing their first choice keeper Alan McGregor as well as Danny Graham and Jake Livermore who is on loan from Spurs. Hull have been in good form away from home of late with their win away at Newcastle their only away win of the season. I expect Spurs to have enough firepower to win this game by a few goals.
Betvictor seem to be the best priced at 102.84
If you miss the early kick offs then Both Daryl and Gecko have given alternative selections which are later kick offs and they are:
Wycombe v Bury (England, 15.00) – Match Result (HOME WIN)
Bury haven’t won away all season with just a point Burton their only gains on their travels. Wycombe are playing well and have lost just twice in their last 9 games, once to table toppers Rochdale 3-2 and at home to Burton not helped by having to play with 10 men for 43 minutes. Wycombe have won 8 of the last 12 meetings between these two including 5 of the last 6 at home with 2 draws and 2 losses making up the stat. Should be a good home win here at nice odds
Yeovil v Nottm Forest (England, 15.00) – Match Result (AWAY WIN)
Yeovil hardly score at home and Forest usually score on their travels; Yeovil have lost 5 of 6 at home and scored just once whereas Forest have lost just 1 in 7 on the road and scored in all of those games
