There’s no shortage of potential accumulator gems this weekend, but my aim is to isolate only the very best games and put them together into a banker treble. It’s crunch time now for many teams, and things are starting to get serious.
After ploughing through the stats, team news and form book, here are my best 3 selections for Saturday’s banker accumulator:
EVERTON v Aston Villa 3.00pm
Odds – 2/5 Paddy Power
Aston Villa are a complete joke of a side at the moment. They have no money for new transfers, their squad is wafer thin, and they just don’t have anything positive going for them at the moment.
Knocked out of both cups in quick succession by teams in lower leagues, Villa now concentrate purely on avoiding the drop, but the last thing they need after their home loss to struggling Newcastle last week is a trip to Goodison to face an Everton side that have impressed beyond belief this term, with just one home loss all season to boot.
The Toffees should have no problem disposing of Villa, and should be added to your banker bets this weekend.
Fulham v MANCHESTER UNITED 5.30pm
Odds – 8/13 Paddy Power
Fulham, who can normally be relied upon at home, have been a shadow of their former selves at Craven Cottage this season, already losing 4 games in front of the home faithful.
Manchester United just keep getting results. RVP has been a revelation, as expected, and their side just have so many goals in them.
The Red Devils thumped Fulham 5-0 in this fixture last season and have beaten them on no less than 3 occasions at Old Trafford since then. The Cottagers are an honest, hard working team, but they just don’t have the quality to prevent the league leaders from taking a victory here.
PORT VALE v Accrington Stanley 3.00pm
Odds – 8/15 Paddy Power
The Valiants have been an impressive force all season, and with the likes of League 2 top scorer Tom Pope and the new addition of Lee Hughes up front, they are terrorizing defences all over the country.
Vale have hit the back of the net 30 times in their 13 home games so far, and Accrington shouldn’t be able to cope with the potent attacking force they’ll be up against at Vale Park.
Accrington did manage to beat Vale in the reverse fixture back in August, but Port Vale are a different animal now and should take the points with the minimum of fuss.
