There’s no shortage of good looking options this weekend to club together into a nice little banker treble, and this Saturday one of my selections happens to be odds against… Almost unheard of in a normally short odds acca. I do recommend also getting on the single however, as it’s unbelievable value. All is explained:
Absolutely no deposit required, just sign up and bet!
Sheffield Wednesday v DERBY COUNTY 3.00pm
Odds: 2/1 Sky Bet
Derby County have been playing some really impressive football in recent weeks, and I predict a real play-off push in th enext couple of months.
It’s probably not an ideal time for Derby to meet Sheffield Wednesday, who are also in fantastic form, but The Owls still have a tremendous amount of pressure on them to pull clear of the relegation zone, which currently stands at just 4 points.
Derby have looked a different team since the return of Jamie Ward from injury; the striker has been linking up well with Connor Sammon and has also chipped in with 3 goals in 5 games since his return.
The Rams demolished Huddersfield 3-0 last weekend, and in their current vein they should have too much for Wednesday.
Southampton v MANCHESTER CITY 5.30pm
Odds: 4/7 Sky Bet
Southampton are going about their business with tremendous credibility in their first season in the top flight, and we know that Manchester City aren’t performing to their potential at the moment which is largely due to missing Yaya Toure in the middle of the park, but the Citizens rate a great bet to collect all 3 points, at an attractive price too.
The Saints gameplan isn’t a defensive one and that will suit City down to the ground.
Manchester United, Spurs, Chelsea, Wigan and Sunderland have all taken 3 points away from St.Mary’s this season, and City should do exactly the same.
SWINDON TOWN v Hartlepool 3.00pm
Odds: 2/5 Sky Bet
Jeff Stelling may tell me otherwise, but their latest wins aside, Hartlepool are still a terrible team at the moment. Their victories over Portsmouth and Notts County especially look good on paper, but when you consider Portsmouth are only 2 points above them in the league and Notts County have won just 3 of their last 15 games in all competitions, it paints a completely different picture.
Swindon are well in the mix to become League 1 Champions, are only 2 points behind current leaders Tranmere Rovers, and are undefeated in their last 9 league games, keeping clean sheets in their last 4 home games. Hartlepool simply don’t have a chance against a team that have scored 16 and conceded 0 in their last 4 appearances at the County Ground.
