Football Accumulator Tips: 18/1 bet builder for the grudge match at Elland Road
There are just two Premier League games being played on Sunday; the first of which is sure to be an absolute blockbuster. Leeds United fans finally get the chance to host their bitter rivals at a jam packed Elland Road for the first time in the Premier League since October 2003 - a game won by a solitary Roy Keane goal.
Once again we've asked our resident West Yorkshireman @OddsTerrier to provide us with his best Bet Builder tips for Sunday’s action and this week he’s chosen a little double from William Hill. At the time of writing the two selections pay 18/1 when combined.
Bet builder tips
My first pick comes in the form of Man Utd and France midfielder Paul Pogba. The 28-year-old is back from injury and back in favour under Ralf Rangnick. How long he stays at the Old Trafford club is another thing altogether, but whilst he plays he remains a threat with the ball in his possession. Pogba only has one goal this season but has picked up eight assists in just nine starts. He is averaging 1.5 key passes and 0.3 through balls per game. With the likes of Rashford, Ronaldo and Sancho in front of him, I'm backing the Frenchmen to pick out another killer pass here.
He is 4/1 to do so for the single.
I've paired that selection with a Leeds United midfielder to be carded. The Elland Road crowd will be absolutely toxic here and will insist their team run themselves into the ground. The likes of Firpo and Llorente caught my eye but the player I've selected is Robin Koch. The 25-year-old German has only played seven Premier League matches this year but is back in the starting line up, due to a combination of injuries and poor form. Koch is averaging 0.7 tackles and 1 foul per game and has already picked up two yellow cards. Here he will likely be up against the niggly pair of McTominay and Bruno Fernandes and will also have to track back to deal with Pogba, Rashford and Sancho.
Combining these two gives us a tasty little 18/1 long shot for what should be an exciting game.
Good luck and bet responsibly.
