£1 Saturday acca pays £433

We’re targeting a big weekend winner
Premier League football is back this weekend, and to celebrate we are having a go at a show-stopping accumulator on Saturday’s fixtures from across the UK.
10 matches, 10 wins, from the top leagues in England and Scotland. Every £1 bet at Coral pays a whopping £433.84, if our thinking works out to be on the money. Prices and returns mentioned are correct at the time of writing. Read on as we glance at each leg…..
Chelsea beat Swansea
The Blues won’t have this all their own way but they do go in stunning form and must be fancied against a side stuck at the wrong end of the table. Swansea have been seen helping themselves to points of late, but it doesn’t pay to oppose Conte’s boys, and we’re keeping faith at 2/9.
Hull beat Burnley
Perhaps not as obvious as the selection before, but the outcome should be the same. Hull enjoy solid home form, winning all of their outings in front of their own fans so far this year, while Burnley are notorious poor travellers, and haven’t won away in 2017. That makes our 11/10 look massive.
Newcastle beat Bristol City
The Magpies aim to strengthen their position at the top of the Championship, and take a step closer to a return to the Premier League, when meeting a hopeless looking opponent who have won just one of their last 10 league games. Newcastle go in without question at 4/9.
Huddersfield beat Barnsley
The Terries will have to bring their A Game here, but they have won each of their last six in the Championship and are pushing hard for an automatic promotion place. Huddersfield are a side worth keeping close at 11/10.
Scunthorpe beat Bristol Rovers
The teams around Scunthorpe in League One have some tricky tests, and they will be looking to make hay and bolster their tally by three. We have seen them in better form, but Rovers have managed just one win in their last seven. The Iron at 7/4.
Fleetwood beat Northampton
Fleetwood are showing no signs of slowing down in their race for Championship football and, on the back of an unbeaten run, are just two points off the automatic promotion places. Northampton have lost six of their last 10, making The Trawlermen a catch at 21/20.
Doncaster beat Accrington
Doncaster lead the way in League Two and look capable of helping their cause against a Stanley side who are flirting with relegation, just four points above the drop zone. Donny have been off-colour recently, but things are getting serious, and they’re trusted to step-up. 8/11 helps out.
Hearts beat Partick
It has been a forgettable couple of days for The Jambos, but they are taken to bounce back with a win against Glasgow’s third-team. They won 2-1 when last down this way, and I fancy Cathro and co to roll up their sleeves and get the points again at 11/8.
St Johnstone beat Kilmarnock
The Saints beat Killie 1-0 when meeting just before Christmas, thanks to a winner from Murray Davidson. A result here would see them keep the pressure on the top-three, against an opponent showing just one win in their last 10. 4/7 gets involved.
Falkirk beat Dumbarton
The Bairns are looking for another promotion play-off finish as they bid for a return to the Scottish top-flight. They beat Dumbarton at this venue back in August and, sitting in third, are unbeaten in their last half-dozen. 8/15, let’s have it.
