It’s worth taking a chance on this 10-fold
We aim for the stars with our midweek football acca. £1 stake pays £397.74. Prices and returns are correct at the time of writing…..
Arsenal beat Watford
The Gunners look to have turned a corner and enter this latest test unbeaten in their last five league starts, winning four. They arrive with confidence to burn after destroying Southampton 5-0 in the FA Cup. Watford are winless in seven. Trust Wenger’s boys at 1/5.
Tottenham beat Sunderland
Sunderland are rock-bottom of the league and haven’t won a match since getting the better of Watford in mid-December. They have lost each of their last two league starts, conceding five goals in the process. Spurs are unbeaten in seven, including six wins. They make perfect sense at 4/11.
Chelsea beat Liverpool
This one is going to boost up our returns, but it’s a bet worth having, I believe. Liverpool are on a miserable run of form, failing to win any of their last three league starts, while being knocked out of the EFL Cup and FA Cup in the same week. They look devoid of confidence, while the opposite can be said of their visitors, who are flying at the top of the league. Coral offer 15/8 and that will make a difference.
Nottingham Forest beat Rotherham
Forest are no great shakes, and you won’t see us supporting them too often this season, but they squeezed past Bristol City recently, and can do the same against another struggling side in Rotherham. We are opposing bottom of the league, who have lost their last two. 4/5 will do us plenty of favours.
Reading beat Birmingham
Poor old Zola can’t get a break at Birmingham and it’s looking like the football gods are against them. They have won just one of their last 10, and that rare positive came eight games ago. Reading are doing a job in third and aren’t out of the picture for automatic promotion yet. The form goes with a Royals win, and so do we at an incredible 7/4.
Sheffield Weds beat Bristol City
Bristol City are perhaps one of the easiest sides to go against at the minute as they have lost each of their last eight league starts. They were brushed aside 2-0 by Burnley last time and have struggled to find the net of late. These two were involved in a five-goal cracker earlier in the season, which The Owls won. We’ll have more of the same at 29/20, a nice price indeed.
Ross County beat Motherwell
The Scottish top-flight is so tight this season, Ross County are fighting for a place in the top-six, while Motherwell are just one better than the relegation zone. Yet, the gap between them is just two points. The Well were beaten 2-0 by Rangers on Saturday and had Scott McDonald sent off. Home advantage will be the deciding factor for The Staggies at 19/20.
Man City beat West Ham
Man City have their problems, but let’s not forget they smashed West Ham 5-0 recently in Stratford and that was their second win of the season over The Hammers. They have faced little resistance on-route to those victories, and will fancy their chances of getting a third. 4/7 on City looks a massive price.
Man Utd beat Hull
Hull are second-bottom of the league and are looking a Championship side in-waiting. Man Utd are on an incredible run of form, after a sticky start under Mourinho, and can leapfrog rivals City into fifth with the right set of results. They have beaten Hull twice this season in league and cup, both without conceding. 1/6 does a shift.
Fulham beat Burton
The Cottagers are refusing to go away in their battle for promotion and have just five points to find to match the pace of the top-six. There’s still all to play for, but they must put together a run of wins, starting here. Burton have lost seven of their last 10, and Fulham’s 19/20 is worth a pop.
