Saturday's Football Acca Tips: 22/1 accumulator to kick-start the season

Saturday's Football Acca Tip: Marcelo Bielsa's side feature in our 20/1 accumulator
Saturday's Football Acca Tip: Marcelo Bielsa's side feature in our 20/1 accumulator

It’s gameweek two across the Premier League and EFL this weekend and I’ve got a 22/1 acca as part of my football tips for the action this Saturday. Four of the five games involved kick off at 15:00pm so you can settle down and watch Soccer Saturday and hopefully have a nice winner to kick-start the season.

22/1 Accumulator

  • (H) Leeds to beat Fulham 
  • (H) Brentford to beat Huddersfield
  • (H) Hull to beat Crewe
  • (A) Swindon to beat Blackpool
  • (H) Manchester United to beat Crystal Palace

The first of the 15:00pm games comes from Elland Road, where two newly promoted sides face off, as Leeds, take on Fulham. Marcelo Bielsa’s side gave us one of the most memorable opening day fixtures in Premier League history last weekend. The West Yorkshire side managed to find the net three times at the home of the Champions Liverpool, before eventually going down 4-3 to a late Mohammed Salah penalty.

The way Leeds broke through Liverpool’s defence time and time again gives plenty of hope to those craving a successful first season after a 16 year absence from the Premier League. Leeds also had more possession than Liverpool last weekend (51%)  and I think that says a lot about what we can expect from them this year.

They take on a Fulham side who were beaten convincingly 3-0 at home by Arsenal last weekend. Their defence will need to improve if they are to avoid a repeat of two seasons ago, when they conceded 81 league goals and were relegated to the Championship. Leeds rested many for the EFL cup game with Hull this week and I expect them to start fast and get an early goal to set the tone for the afternoon at Elland Road - home win.

Next up It’s Brentford who take on Huddersfield in their first league game at their new ground - The Brentford Community Stadium. The Bees suffered a shock 1-0 defeat on the opening day, losing to Birmingham. The hosts had hoped this game would be their first in the Premier League, however putting last season’s play-off final disappointment behind them will be a necessity if they are to challenge for promotion again this season.

Thomas Frank’s side can bounce-back here though against a Huddersfield side who lack potency. The Terriers have lost their two competitive games so far this season to a scoreline of 1-0 to Norwich and then Rochdale in the cup. There’s more speculation around the future of striker Karlan Grant and after selling Steve Mounie this summer, they look short of firepower. It’s a shame there will not be a full stadium to see the Bee’s into their new home, but I do think they will come out as winners on Saturday.

Dropping down into League-One and the first of two sides I’m backing from the division is Hull, who face Crewe on Humberside. Hull never recovered from the departures of Jarrod Bowen and Kamil Grosicki last January and as a result dropped out of the Championship after a horrendous run of results in the second half of the season. I do believe they have a squad that is worthy of challenging for promotion this time out though, and after a 2-0 away win at Gillingham on the opening day, they can follow it up with another three points.

They take on Crewe who were promoted from League-Two last season. The Railwaymen face a tough start to life in League-One. They were beaten 2-0 at home to Charlton last weekend and I think this will be an even tougher test as they make the trip across the Pennines to Hull. To say these sides were two divisions apart last season I’m rather surprised to see even money available for the home win.

Swindon got their League campaign underway with a 3-1 home victory over Rochdale last weekend. Despite losing Eoin Doyle and the goals that he brings, I expect Swindon to go well this season. They have replaced Doyle with Brett Pitman which looks a very good signing for the club. After winning the title and earning promotion last season Richie Wellens can continue the upwards curve and can earn victory over Blackpool.

Wellens played just under 200 games in total for the Seasiders in the six years he spent on the Fylde coast. They were 13th in the League-One table before the season was halted by Covid-19, and they kicked off this campaign with a 1-0 defeat to Plymouth on the opening day. I expect another mid-table finish from Blackpool this season but on Saturday I’ll be backing Swindon to take all three points. 

The fifth and final selection in this accumulator comes from Old Trafford at 17:30pm. Manchester United host Crystal Palace in their first game of the league season. New signing Donny Van De Beek is expected to make his full debut after being involved in a friendly last week, with rumours still trundling on around the future of England starlet, Jadon Sancho.

After signing Bruno Fernandes in January last season, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were much improved, and as a result they climbed the table to finish a very respectable third. I don’t think they will be challenging for the title this season but I do think they will stroll to a comfortable win against Crystal Palace on Saturday evening. The hosts are currently 18/1 with Betfred to win the title this season in the Premier League Winner Market after being matched as short as 8/1 just three weeks ago.

Roy Hodgson’s side managed an impressive 1-0 home win against Southampton last weekend. This week they have confirmed the loan signing of Michy Batshuayi for a second time and things are looking a little more positive with Eberechi Eze impressing when coming off the bench against the Saints. When it comes to quality in the final third though, United are miles ahead here. I expect Bruno to be pulling the strings and there to be plenty of chances for the likes of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford - everything here points to a home win.

Those five selections together as an accumulator pays in the region of 22/1. I’ll be backing this with bet365 as they offer an accumulator bonus based on the number of selections you include. With five-selections they offer a 10% bonus, meaning this bet will pay 25/1 if it lands. Best of luck to those following, please gamble responsibly.
