There are plenty of Football League betting opportunities for punters to get stuck into on Tuesday night and we’ve picked out our five strongest fancies for an accumulator that will give us a pay-out of almost 14/1 if all are successful.
Newcastle let us down for a 10/1 pay-out on Saturday, but don’t fret if just one of the legs loses because our five-team acca insurance ensures we refund minimum £5 stakes as a Free Bet up to £25 when a five-fold is placed on the same day and one selection fails to oblige.
Aston Villa to beat Bristol City @ 21/20
Steve Bruce admitted Villa’s 1-0 defeat of Derby on Saturday “wasn’t pretty” but that first victory of 2017 should have lifted spirits at the midlands club and we’re backing them to now kick on. Bristol City picked up a great point at Newcastle after catching the Magpies napping early on but their only win in 14 Championship matches was against basement dwellers Rotherham.
Bolton to beat Bristol Rovers @ Evens
Wanderers have to bounce back from only picking up one point from two tough trips to Bradford and Sheffield United, but they had previously beaten Walsall and Rochdale at the Macron Stadium to make it 11 home wins in League One this term. Rovers have battled hard to secure five straight draws, but their overall away record is poor, conceding more goals on the road than any other team in the top half of the table.
Rochdale to beat Port Vale @ 31/50
Dale appear to have been adversely affected by their FA Cup hammering off Huddersfield in recent weeks but this looks a golden opportunity to get their bid to make the League One play-offs back on track. Vale have gone nine games without a win and have only registered one away victory all season, scoring just nine times in their 15 matches on the road.
Portsmouth to beat Morecambe @ 33/100
Pompey haven’t given up hope of securing automatic promotion from League Two after picking up 10 points out of 12 from their last four fixtures, including Saturday’s superb 3-0 victory at third-placed Carlisle. Morecambe have also been going along nicely, with just one defeat in 10 games, but they have had a kind schedule and this match may expose their limitations.
Stevenage to beat Leyton Orient @ 67/100
Boro boss Darren Sarll admitted he was kept awake at night by his team’s poor form in December and January but he should be sleeping much more soundly at the moment following five wins and a draw from six League Two matches. Orient are coming off back-to-back home losses to Notts County and Cheltenham and have tasted defeat in eight of their last 10 games.
