Coral’s Saturday Football acca pays £250 from a £5 stake

Fivefold includes Prem and Championship clashes

English football’s top two tiers return following the international break, with fans across the land ready to see their sides in action again.

That’s the focus of Saturday’s Coral acca, with the Coral News Team producing a fivefold of picks from the Premier League and Championship. If it comes good, a £5 stake on this accumulator will pay out a sizeable £250.72. Odds correct at time of writing.

Here are the selections, starting with the Irons’ visit to Vicarage Road…

Watford v West Ham: Both Teams to Score

When these sides meet, it generally means excitement for the neutral. Both teams have netted in each of the last three Head-to-Heads, a run which includes the Hornets’ memorable 4-2 victory at London Stadium.

Both teams are also in good goalscoring form. The Irons have scored in seven of their previous eight games – but haven’t kept a clean sheet since the end of September.

Marco Silva’s men have also scored in six of the last eight, but have shipped 18 goals in the process. With attacking talent and leaky defences on both sides, Both Teams to Score looks good at 8/11.

Nottingham Forest to beat Birmingham

Birmingham City fans have had little to cheer lately. Their side have managed one point from four games, failing to score in the process. That makes it something of a surprise to see Forest at such sizeable odds for victory at St. Andrew’s.

Mark Warburton’s side have won three of their last four fixtures, including a 4-0 rout of Queens Park Rangers and a 3-2 victory in Hull. Forest also have a good record in this fixture – unbeaten in four, winning two of those. The Coral News Team think Forest to Win looks generously-priced at 9/5.

Man City to beat Leicester City & Over 2.5 Goals

The Citizens have been unstoppable this season. They’ve won 10 of their opening 11 league games, netting an astonishing 38 goals in the process. That trend is likely to continue against a Foxes side languishing in 12th place.

The North-West side’s last four league games have all been victories, with each match involving a total of three or more goals. Leicester are unlikely to take a point, but could well register, having netted in five successive outings in all competitions. Man City to Win and Over 2.5 Goals gives this acca a boost at 4/5.

Ipswich or Draw (v. Hull City)

Things are not going to plan at the KCOM Stadium right now. Hull have lost three games in a row, conceding 10 goals in the process. And the signs suggest Ipswich will continue the Tigers’ winless run on Saturday.

Mick McCarthy’s men blow hot and cold, but they have won two of their last three games – including a 3-0 victory at Preston North End last time out.

That all points to victory for the visitors, but with the Tractor Boys winless in Hull since 2007, the Coral News Team are playing it safe with Double Chance: Ipswich or Draw at 4/5.

Derby County to beat Fulham

The Rams have been in stellar form on the road. Unbeaten in four away from home, they’ve beaten Norwich City and Leeds United on their last two trips. That bodes well for Gary Rowett’s men as they visit a Fulham side who are tumbling down the Championship table.

The Cottagers have registered just two points in five games, and have one of the division’s worst away records. Slavisa Jokanovic’s side have won just once at Craven Cottage in the league this term, and also exited the Carabao Cup at home to League One Bristol Rovers.

Add the fact that the Rams have taken eight points from the past four Head-to-Heads, and Derby to Win looks very appealing at 11/5.
