FOOTBALL BETTING ACCUMULATOR TIPS – 28th January
A near full set of fixtures on Tuesday night gives punters the chance to make some midweek money. With lots of teams having a weekend break due to the FA Cup, players will be ready for action and we should be in for a great night of entertainment.
Here’s three teams we think will have a great chance of three points.
LIVERPOOL V EVERTON
At Anfield, it’s one of the most important Merseryside Derby matches in recent years as Liverpool look to increase their gap over rivals Everton to further boost their chances of finishing in the top 4 for the first time in
Meanwhile, the Toffess know that three points at Anfield will see them leapfrog their city rivals and into the top 4 themselves, at least until Wednesday night when Tottenham face Manchester City.
Under Roberto Martinez, Everton have been fantastic but they know that they’ll need to be at their very best to beat Liverpool. At Anfield, Brendan Rodgers’ men have dropped just 5 points and with Suarez on fire you would be surprised if the Reds don’t at least get a couple of goals. If they keep it tight at the back then a home win should be assured.
Unfortunately for Everton, they’ve been hit with a number of injuries. Bryan Oviedo joined Darron Gibson and Arouna Kone on the casualty list after breaking his leg at the weekend, meanwhile Seamus Coleman, Ross Barkley and Sylvain Disitn could also miss out. Even new signing Lacina Traore isn’t 100% fit so it could be a tough game ahead for the Toffees.
Liverpool also have injuries, but most of those are to squad players rather than first-team regulars. Neutrals would love a repeat of the reverse fixture, a 3-3 thriller, but Everton are unlikely to experience the same levels of joy in the final third at Anfield.
Home advantage could also play a big part but I think the gulf in talent on show is what gives Liverpool the biggest chance fo success. Everton are doing great, but I think they will suffer their third defeat of the season here.
LIVERPOOL Win @ 17/20 with Bet 365.
BARNSLEY V BLACKBURN ROVERS
Following Saturday’s fairly decent draw with title-chasing Derby, Blackburn Rovers will resume their own quest for Premier League football with the trip to rock bottom Barnsley.
Rovers are currently 9th but trail 6th placed Reading by just three points. A playoff spot is definitely the aim for Gary Bowyer’s men and if they are going to realise those ambitions then three points against the Tykes are essential.
The game looks over for Barnsley. They might be just five points from safety but it is hard to see where they will put a good sequence together. Four points in two games this month is pretty much a it has got for supporters at Oakwell and Danny Wilson is probably casting one eye towards League One already.
Barnsley just can’t score enough goals. When you have conceded 42 goals, you need to be finding the net more than 23 times. A rare win against out of form Blackpool gave them hope, but the chances of following that with another three points against Blackburn are unlikely.
With 16 league goals, Jordan Rhodes is second in the goalscoring charts and the Scotland international will be hopeful of adding to his tally here. If he does, then it’s hard to see Barnsley leaving this one with anything other than another defeat.
BLACKBURN Win @ 7/5 with Bet 365.
BRENTFORD V BRISTOL CITY
League One strugglers, Bristol City travel to Griffin Park to face table-topping Brentford and could be in for another disappointing night as their hopes of survival begin to diminish once more.
Just when you think City are getting somewhere, they suffer another setback. They should still have enough to stay up but the games will start to run out quickly if they don’t drag themselves out of i within the next month or so.
At Ashton Gate, Brentford won 2-1. The Bees have gone from strength to strength since that October victory and a near faultless couple of months sees them top the table at this stage. Another three points here will help as they look to gain automatic promotion to the Championship.
Bristol City score a lot of goals but Brentford’s defence is very tight and we saw on Saturday that the Robins do struggle against the top teams in this division. Wolves beat them 3-1 at the weekend, whilst Brenford beat Gillingham 2-1, and a similar scoreline is probably the likeliest outcome here.
Brentford have scored 47 whilst Bristol City’s defence has shipped 42. If the table-toppers don’t score at least two, it would be quite a shock.
Survival is still very much possible for Steve Cotterrill’s side but this match is probably one step too far for them. Home win.
BRENTFORD Win @ 4/6 with Bet 365.
