We’ve picked out five banker bets on UK matches for our Saturday football accumulator and are sticking with the top two divisions this week for a possible 15/1 pay-out.
Don’t fret if one of the legs lets you down 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 a single selection goes astray.
Crystal Palace to beat Watford @ 9/10
Sam Allardyce appears to be steering the Eagles in the right direction judged on back-to-back wins over Middlesbrough and West Brom, with Palace keeping a clean sheet in both of those fixtures. Watford are always a threat going forward, but their intensity has dropped in recent weeks and the feeling is that they will be outworked at Selhurst Park.
Bournemouth to beat Swansea @ 11/10
The Cherries built on a brave draw at Manchester United by snatching a late win over West Ham, with Josh King making it nine goals in 10 games when hitting a hat-trick that day. Eddie Howe’s side should go into this fixture full of confidence, as they beat Swansea 3-0 at Liberty Stadium on New Year’s Eve, while the Welsh team could still be deflated from last week’s loss at Hull.
Fulham to beat Wolves @ 3/4
The Cottagers are unbeaten in their last eight Championship matches, scoring a healthy 19 goals during that period, and the chance to claim a place in the play-offs can spur them on to more success. Wolves have eased their relegation fears following back-to-back victories over Rotherham and Brentford, but they tend to struggle against teams towards the top end of the table.
Norwich to beat Barnsley @ 57/100
Six games without a victory have left the Canaries facing an uphill battle to keep their promotion hopes alive, so this is a must-win match ahead of tricky trips to Aston Villa and Huddersfield. Barnsley have lost on their last two road trips to Derby and QPR and the vibes are that they could now be running out of steam after a solid campaign.
QPR to beat Rotherham @ 9/20
Rangers have done well to pick up maximum points from their last three home matches and will also have been delighted to secure a share of the spoils at Leeds a week ago. Rotherham have the worst record in all four English divisions and go into this game on a run of 10 defeats in 11 fixtures, with the Millers having drawn a blank in front of goal eight times in that period.
