Back to normal league action this weekend after the thrills and spills of the FA Cup, and there are a few standout bets for Saturday. I’ve had some nice returns on my banker accumulators recently and here’s hoping that Saturday’s treble comes up trumps too.
Here are my strongest 3 bets for Saturday:
Join Sky Bet and start winning
Bristol City v Leicester 3.00pm
Odds: 4/6 Sky Bet
Bristol City games were assured of goals until recently. There have been plenty of rugby style scores at Ashton Gate this season, but goals appear to be drying up for Bristol City in the last month or so, and Leicester can take full advantage of their opponents barren spell.
Leicester can be a frustrating team to bet on, but there’s no doubting their ability, and they have the advantage of being in good form; winning their last 3 games and hitting 6 past Huddersfield on New Years Day.
Bristol City sit just 1 place from the foot of the Championship, and I’m predicting them to be rock bottom by 5.00pm Saturday.
Fulham v Wigan 3.00pm
Odds: 10/11 Sky Bet
Neither team has been setting the world alight recently, but you have to fancy Fulham to see off a pretty desperate looking Wigan side who’s only win in their last 9 games came against a dreadful Aston Villa.
The Cottagers have managed just 1 win in their last 5 and their home form isn’t quite what you’d expect form them this term, but they should have the beating of Wigan here. Fulham beat Wigan 2-1 at the DW back in September, and I think bookies have gone a bit long on the home side, making them very good value.
Sheffield United v Yeovil 3.00pm
Odds: 8/13 Sky Bet
Yeovil’s form looks good on first view, but if you look a little bit closer they haven’t actually beaten much in the last month or so, with all their wins coming against bottom half clubs.
They visit Bramall Lane on Saturday to face a Blades team that will still be smarting after a shock 3-2 loss to dire Hartlepool just after Christmas, their first home defeat of the season.
Bournemouth disposed of 10th placed Yeovil 3-0 on Boxing Day, and there’s absolutley no reason why Sheffield United won’t do exactly the same. Sheffield United beat Yeovil 1-0 in the reverse fixture played in September.
