Football Accumulator Tips: 33/1 Bet Builder makes appeal on Sunday
It feels strange this weekend that more Premier League games take place on Sunday than Saturday, but so is the case and @AnthonyEadson has provided us with his best bet builder tips for the action.
Two selections have caught his eye on Sunday, both of which come from the London Stadium where West Ham take on Aston Villa. At the time of writing 33/1 is being offered on the double with bookmaker bet365.
Bet Builder Tips
Last Sunday’s Bet Builder was a winner and I’m hoping for more of the same this weekend, however this time I’ve opted for a more speculative approach at an eye-catching 33/1. This week's double consists of two players being carded in the West Ham vs Aston Villa match at the London Stadium, with the first of those being England International, Declan Rice.
West Ham went down 1-0 in the first leg of their Europa League Round of 16 tie with Sevilla on Thursday evening. The Hammers put in a right shift against their Spanish counterparts and that game will have taken a lot out of them, with David Moyes’ side not arriving back in England till the early hours of Friday.
It’s a quick turnaround for both sides here but I feel Aston Villa have it a bit easier after their comfortable victory over Leeds at Elland Road on Thursday. In the Premier League this season Declan Rice has been shown seven yellow cards in 26 appearances and is West Ham’s most carded player this campaign and I’m hoping his tired legs may lead to a cynical foul on Sunday.
I fancy Rice to have a good battle in the middle of the park with the likes of Douglas Luiz and John McGinn. Both of those Aston Villa midfielders rank highly for fouls drawn per game this season with Luiz drawing 1.5 per game and John McGinn 2.1 per game. This ranks the Scot in the top-eight players in the division for drawing fouls this season.
The other player I’ll be pairing up Declan Rice to be carded with, is Ollie Watkins of Aston Villa. This season Watkins has received six yellow cards making him the most booked striker in the Premier League in 2021/2022.
Furthermore, the six yellow cards that he has been shown have come in just 22 starts in the league. Three of those yellows have come in his last three matches, and with 13/2 on show as a single with bet365 I think he looks well overpriced to find his way into the book.
Australian referee Jarred Gillett will be the man in charge of the game on Sunday and this season he averages 4.20 yellow cards per game across the five matches he has appeared in. That’s a higher figure than any referee in the division last season and with this in mind I’ll be taking the 33/1 for both Watkins and Rice to be carded.
