Football Accumulator Tips: 17.32/1 Fourfold Tuesday Night Acca with Paddy Power
Tuesday night brings with it action from both the Champions League and across the domestic football pyramid. Neil Monnery has picked out a fourfold acca from four different games that he thinks has a much better chance of coming in at 17.32/1 compared to the implied probability of 5.5%...
Karim Benzema to score Anytime vs Man City at 2/1
I know Manchester City are pretty darn good defensively but the French striker has been having a Champions League season for the ages. 12 goals in nine games is a fine headline statistic but when you break it down to include substitutions and the extra half an hour on the pitch against Chelsea last time out, it equates to a goal every 68.5 minutes. He bagged a hat-trick in the away leg of the last round at Chelsea and has hit the back of the net in seven of his previous eight games in the competition. 2/1 seems like an enticing price, which really boosts this acca.
Swansea vs Bournemouth - BTTS at 8/11
BTTS has come in for Swansea in four straight games. The home side have also taken 57 shots in those four games, which is just over 14 a game. They are going to finish mid-table but it seems that they aren’t on the beach just yet and are playing with an attacking gusto.
Bournemouth BTTS backers haven’t had a great run in recent weeks with the bet only coming in once in the previous five and that was via an injury time penalty. With automatic promotion not yet assured, Scott Parker’s men will have to attack to try and grab the three points as they have an incredibly tough run-in. So expect an open game and with Swansea being the top scorers outside of the play-offs, both teams have every chance to get on the score sheet.
Portsmouth vs. Wigan - Over 2.5 Goals at 5/4
Pompey were mathematically eliminated from the play-off picture and suddenly went on a free-scoring run in front of the Fratton Faithful. They’ve bagged three goals in each of their previous three home games. With the pressure off, Danny Cowley’s men have turned on the style. Not frustrating for home fans, no, not at all…
As for the visitors, they are all but promoted and would need a dramatic goal difference swing to see them not be plying their trade in the Championship next season. They’ve only failed to hit the back of the net once in their previous 13 games. I did think of putting BTTS into this spot (8/11) but feel the over 2.5 goals has just as much chance of happening at a slightly better price.
Exeter to beat Barrow at 4/7
Barrow are safe having seen Oldham Athletic cemented into the second relegation slot on Saturday. The players will not be up for the long trip down to the south west coast emotionally whereas the hosts would seal promotion to League 1 with the win. Exeter have won five of their past six and the only thing I see stopping them from victory is nerves. This feels like one of the better home bankers across the fixture list this Tuesday night.
