The festive period promises to be a fascinating part of the season and we’re looking to start it in style with this 5/1 Saturday accumulator at BetVictor.
We’re backing three home teams to leave their fans celebrating three points and use celebrating £50 profit just in time for Christmas.
West Ham United V Leicester City
Sam Allardyce’s men have enjoyed a fabulous start to 2014/15 and enter this weekend’s action sitting fourth in the table. Whilst their descent over the coming weeks appears somewhat inevitable, we think they can cling on to that Champions League spot for at least a little while longer with three points against struggling Leicester.
The Foxes are currently bottom of the Premier League table and Nigel Pearson’s newly-promoted side are really struggling for form right now. They make the trip to Upton Park on the back of four straight defeats and could be set for another tough afternoon here.
West Ham’s improved frontline has already netted 27 league goals this term and the return of Andy Carroll has provided another boost to Allardyce’s men. The England man was instrumental during the 3-1 win over Swansea two weeks ago and will hope to make a similarly monumental impact against Leicester.
If the Foxes perform to their maximum potential then they can push West Ham all the way. However, it has been a very productive few months at the Boleyn Ground and the Hammers will be fancied to spread some festive cheer with another victory.

Swindon Town V Doncaster Rovers
A run of five straight wins has thrust Swindon Town right back into the League One title race and Mark Cooper’s men could reach the summit with three points against Doncaster.
The Robins have hit an impressive 39 goals this season, with 20 coming from their 10 matches at home. The County Ground has been a real fortress this season and that home advantage could be the real difference here.
Doncaster’s away record is actually pretty decent, with the Rovers winning five of 10 outings on the road. However, they’ve conceded 14 goals in that period and those defensive wobbles could be a key aspect of this intriguing battle.
Deadly duo Andrew Williams and Michael Smith have amassed a combined total of 20 goals already. That firepower should be enough to produce another home win for the Robins.

AFC Wimbledon V Mansfield Town
Our final selection comes from League Two and we’re backing Neil Ardley’s men to get their bid for the play-offs back on track by beating Mansfield at Kingsmeadow.
The Dons are fairly inconsistent, which may put some punters off, but they will be in good spirits after registering back-to-back away wins against Wycombe and York. Additionally, their ability to find the net regularly on home soil could be a major factor throughout Saturday’s visit of Mansfield.
Player-manager Adam Murray faces a real test in trying to rally the troops following Tuesday’s FA Cup loss, which forms part of a four-game winless streak for the Stags. The midweek clash could also leave his players drained ahead of this trip and that could hand an extra advantage to the hosts.
Mansfield are still searching for a first win under the Football League’s youngest boss. Unfortunately, that much sought victory could elude them a little while longer.
