Everyone is panic-buying petrol after a threat of fuel strikes. Personally, I think buying petrol in case of a shortage is perfectly sensible. Going to the petrol station and coming back with no petrol and a canoe, now that’s panic buying.
Anyway, with petrol now more expensive than the cars it goes into, how about a nice 13/1 accumulator to ease the financial strain of a trip to the pumps? Plus anything you’ve got left over can be used to buy some canoe polish.

Arsenal to beat QPR @ 11/20
Arsene Wenger was under pressure, and lots of it, at the start of the season as his Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri-less side were dropping points right, left and centre. Fast forward to late March and they have seemingly cemented yet another Champions League place and could pip rivals Spurs for third.
QPR have free-fallen after a decent start to their return to the top flight. Replacing Neil Warnock with Mark Hughes doesn’t seem to have done the trick as they find themselves desperately fighting against relegation. Having won just two games since November 19th, it’s clear to see why.
Their stunning comeback against Liverpool aside, the Hoops have not been in great form, as opposed to their visitors this weekend, who have won on their last seven league outings. The 11/20 on an away win at Loftus Road is generous given the two teams’ respective situations and it’s still too early for the Gunners to have their standard end-of-season collapse.
Brighton to beat Middlesbrough @ 6/5
There are not too many teams in consistently good form in the Championship. The wonderful unpredictability of the second tier has been evident again this season, which makes picking a winner all the more satisfying.
The Seagulls, however, are an exception at the moment and have enjoyed a good first season in their new Amex Stadium, winning 11 of the 18 league games they have hosted. Gus Poyet’s men have also lost only once in 2012, which makes them favourites when Middlesbrough head to the south coast.
Boro have not won in five games, losing two of them, and although they have enjoyed a good season away from home, winning on nine of their 19 trips, the 6/5 offered on another victorious day for Brighton is too tempting.
Sheffield United to beat Hartlepool @ 21/20
You let me down two weeks ago, Blades – don’t fail me again. I’m sure Danny Wilson’s team-talks all sound very similar and they clearly work as United have climbed up to second in League One.
With an identical away win ratio as Middlesbrough (nine from 19), the red and whites will travel to Victoria Park needing a win to keep city rivals Wednesday at bay and with Hartlepool having won five and lost nine of their 19 home games this campaign, the Blades will fancy their chances.
Wilson’s men triumphed 3-1 over the Monkey Hangers at Bramall Lane on New Year’s Eve and look good value at 21/20 to do the double this Saturday, especially as the hosts have won just one of their last six.
Crewe to beat Northampton @ 91/100
As we often do, we end up in League Two, with Crewe, so just for you, here’s a clue, how to turn one note, into a few. I have no idea what happened there and can only apologise, so anyway, Gresty Road.
The Alex have been in phenomenal form recently as they surge up the table to try and grab a valuable play-off place. Having won their last four and lost only once in their previous ten, Crewe are flying at present and their visitors on Saturday will not be looking forward to this one.
The Cobblers have improved markedly to pull away from the relegation zone, but have just lost loanee keeper Matt Duke, who has had to return to Bradford after their regular stopper Jon McLaughlin was sent off against Crawley in midweek.
Having lost half of their away games this season, it would seem asking them to stop Crewe’s momentum would be too much to expect, so the 91/100 on a home win rounds our accumulator off nicely. Any winnings can be used to drive down to the… oh no, out of petrol. Where’s that canoe?
