Football Accumulator Betting Tips – 22nd February
This weekend’s accumulator is on Paddy Power as we take of their current promotion, which offers a bonus on slips consisting of three or more selections. Any treble (check terms for leagues involved) placed between now and the end of February will incur a 5% price boost.
The more teams you pick, the bigger the boost with a 14 team accumulator winning being doubled. However, we’re sticking to just three teams once more.
Hopefully our selections will bring some of the Irish luck.
Cardiff City V Hull City Tigers
Two of the Premier League new boys do battle at the Cardiff City Stadium as the Bluebirds entertain Hull City and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be desperate to claim a second home win in English management.
So far this month, Cardiff have claimed four points from their two Premiership home matches and will be hopeful of picking up another three against Steve Bruce’s men. A win for Cardiff could see them climb out of the bottom three and if that doesn’t provide enough motivation then the vocal crowd certainly will.
Whilst Cardiff sit 19th, Hull are relatively comfortable in 13th. With only three points separating them and the drop zone, Bruce knows his men still have work to do but it seems probable that they’ll be plying their trade in the top-flight again next year.
However, their away record is poor. In 13 games on the road, they’ve picked up just eight points and Solskjaer will be confident that his side can inflict Hull’s 10th away loss of the campaign.
Four of Cardiff’s wins have come in the Welsh capital and if they are going to survive then it is essential that they continue to secure points at home. Against a team like Hull, there’s a good chance they will.

Charlton Athletic V QPR
At the Valley, it’s a London derby as Harry Redknapp’s promotion-chasing QPR travel to relegation threatened Charlton.
Whilst they might have three games in hand on those above them, the Addicks chances of survival are starting to look slim following four straight league defeats for Chris Powell’s side. The challenge of QPR is not one that the home side will relish.
The Hoops are suffering a blip of their own right now courtesy of back-to-back defeats over Reading and Derby. However, they will be confident of a positive response of an inferior Charlton. With Ravel Morrison joining their ranks from West Ham this week, there will be a renewed energy about the side and it should help them to overcome their London rivals.
QPR won the reverse fixture at Loftus Road thanks to a superb Charlie Austin effort and his return of 15 goals has been the key to their success and his absence will be felt by Redknapp’s side. However, they do have a host of other players capable of finding the net.
Unfortunately for Powell, he doesn’t have any prolific strikers and that could prove to be their downfall – not only on Saturday but in their survival bid too.

Wycombe Wanderers V Chesterfield
In League Two, Wycombe sit precariously above the drop zone and their situation could be about to get even worse this weekend as they welcome top of the table Chesterfield to Adams Park.
The Spireites have won four of their last five outings whilst Wanderers are now on a run of nine league matches without victory. That poor run has seen them slide down the table and Gareth Ainsworth’s side are now fighting for their Football League status. Meanwhile, talks of a potetnial takeover at the club also adds to the uncertainty surrounding the League Two club.
As you might expect from the league leaders, Chesterfield boast a pretty decent away record. Conversely, Wycombe have won just three times at home this season and that shoddy return explains their current plight.
Three points for Chesterfield will further enhance their title credentials, they should get them at Adams Park.
