Football Accumulator Tips: Moutinho to be carded in 50/1 Bet Builder
After a stunning 16/1 double last weekend along with a 13/10 winner on his main selection @AnthonyEadson is back with his best Bet Builder tips for Saturday’s Premier League action.
There are five fixtures taking place in the English top-flight on Saturday this week and once again I’ve picked out a best bet along with a double I like the look of that hopefully has a bit more juice in it than the 50/1 suggests.
Both plays come from the Brentford vs Wolves game which starts at 3pm and as usual I’d advise checking team news an hour before the game to ensure the players involved are starting.
Bet Builder Tips
I’ve reverted to one of my old favourites when it comes to betting angles this weekend in backing a player to be carded who I think will be the direct opponent of Adama Traore and I’m hoping it can prove profitable again.
Rico Henry is the player I’m fancying to find his way into the book on Saturday and with Thomas Frank managing his workload midweek by dropping him to the bench against Man United, I think we’ll see a return to the starting line-up for Henry at left-wing-back, with Sergi Canos moving back to the right.
Adama Traore managed his first goal of the season after coming on as a substitute against Southampton last weekend and I also think we’ll see a return for him to his side's starting XI in this match. Notorious for his pace and difficulty to mark, Traore drew an average of 2.3 fouls per game last season and has a history of causing players to find themselves picking up a card.
Traore’s trickery led to a yellow card for Nemanja Matic when making a 24 minute cameo against Manchester United at the start of the month, and another plus here is that we have a referee in charge who has been trigger-happy with the bookings this season. Peter Bankes has only taken charge of six top-flight games so far in 2021/2022 but has given out an impressive 34 yellow cards with an average of 5.67 per game. That’s higher than any other official in the Premier League this season and with this in mind, 11/2 looks a good price on Henry to be carded should Adama Traore start on the right side of a front-three for Wolves.
Rico Henry being carded will be my main selection on Saturday if team news goes our way, but I’ll also be having a little nibble at the 50/1 on offer from bet365 for Wolves midfielder Joao Moutinho to also join Henry in Peter Bankes’s notebook.
The Portuguese veteran has only been shown a yellow card on two occasions so far this league campaign, but having a look back at his data and he does average over a foul a game in all four of his Premier League seasons with Wolves. When looking at just away matches that figure rises to at least 1.2 fouls per game in the league for Wolves in each of his four seasons and with him now approaching the back-end of his career at 35 I think we’ll see a good few more as his pace declines.
To recap that’s 11/2 and 50/1 plays for this Saturday in the Premier League for my Bet Builder selections. Good luck to anyone following and let’s hope for another winner after last weekend.
