Last weekend, bwinbetting’s Neil Sargent urged punters to back FC Copenhagen, Panathinaikos and Lille in his Banker Treble bet, and if you did you would have doubled your money as all three notched up victories.
This week, Neil shares his selection for a weekend accumulator and, if his advice is as good as it was last week, new customers who stake their free £25 bet for joining bwin on his picks stand to win £397.50 at odds of 149/10.
Tottenham to beat Bolton @ 7/25
Tottenham have won five Premier League games in a row and are unbeaten in ten. They haven’t dropped a point at home since 28th August, and have scored in every single league match since the first day of the season. They are third in the table and could go second if they win their game in hand. To cap it all off they haven’t lost against Bolton at home since 2004.
For Owen Coyle the honeymoon period is well and truly over. Bolton are stuck in the relegation zone having lost ten out of 13 games this season, including four defeats in the last five matches
At 7/25 to win, Tottenham look like bankers.
Manchester City to beat Norwich @ 9/50
Having given most of their big stars the night off in the Carling Cup in midweek, Manchester City will be firing on all cylinders again on Saturday as they look to maintain their 100 per cent record at the Etihad Stadium this season.
Norwich haven’t kept a clean sheet in any game in any competition this season, and this will be a telling factor against a side of Man City’s attacking prowess. City have scored an awesome 43 goals in the Premier League alone this season – 13 more than their nearest rivals – and 19 in six home matches.
At 9/50 for a home win, bwin aren’t giving Norwich much hope at all, and I’m not either. Safe as houses, this one.
Charlton to beat Carlisle @ 18/25
Charlton and Carlisle will put their league campaigns on hold at the weekend as the FA Cup takes centre stage, but even though it is a different competition you can expect this one to go with league form.
Charlton have looked unstoppable in their relentless surge to the top of the League 1 table. They have won their last seven consecutive games, culminating in a statement-making victory against record breaking Huddersfield on Monday night.
When Carlisle visited the Valley on league business in October they were crushed 4-0, and the Addicks haven’t dropped a point since. The visitors are no mugs and are sitting pretty in eighth place in League One following Saturday’s victory over Colchester, but they have only recorded consecutive victories once this season, and doubling that record seems unlikely on this occasion.
Southampton to beat Doncaster @ 7/10
It’s bottom versus top at the Keepmoat, and anything other than an away victory seems unlikely.
Doncaster’s mini-revival which followed Dean Saunders’ appointment is nothing but a distant memory now. They have only won once in their last nine matches and are six points off safety following Tuesday’s 3-2 defeat at relegation rivals Millwall.
Southampton, on the other hand, put Saturday’s defeat at Bristol City out of their minds with a 2-1 midweek win over Hull which maintained their two point lead at the top of the table, and look good value at 7/10 to brush Donny aside.
Kilmarnock to beat Aberdeen @ 5/4
Backing Kilmarnock to beat Aberdeen might not seem as clear cut as the other matches on your accumulator, at least on paper, but recent form suggests this could be a sage move.
Killie will be flying following their first ever home SPL win against Rangers at the weekend, which puts the memory of their 6-3 thrashing by Inverness at the start of the month firmly to the back of their minds. That defeat was Killie’s only loss in the last six games, and they look like a side that is looking up the table rather than down.
Aberdeen came from 3-1 down to salvage a 3-3 draw with Dunfermline at the weekend, but it was the only point they have gained from the last four matches, having lost their previous three games. More importantly, they have not won away from home all season, and have managed just two draws – Saturday’s scrambled comeback included.
At 5/4, a Kilmarnock win looks like very good value.
Ross County to beat Raith Rovers @ 3/5
The Scottish First Division is renowned as being one of the tightest in Britain, but Ross County seem intent on smashing that reputation to pieces.
They are already nine points clear at the top of the table having lost only once, way back on 13th August, and they are in the middle of a nine-match winning run that shows no sign of abating.
Raith Rovers, on the other hand, are eighth out of ten and have lost four of their last five matches. They have only won away from home once all season and that was against bottom club Queen of the South back in August, on the same weekend as Ross County last lost.
