It’s the weekend again! You know it’s almost Saturday when you start looking at the huge weekend football fixture list, hoping for a few games to stick out like sore thumbs in order to build a banker accumulator!
This Saturday looks a very tough one to call, with many games priced very closely, but there are indeed a few games that are begging to be put together to form a lovely banker accumulator. Here’s my take on the best bets for Saturday.
Stoke City v Swansea 3.00pm 10/11 Betfred
Stoke haven’t had much luck lately, but they should be relishing the visit of hapless Swansea, who started the season so well but now appear to be in freefall.
The Potters have had to deal with the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City in recent weeks, and Tony Pulis will have his men fully prepared to boot their season into action against a side that can’t buy a win at the moment.
Manchester United v Tottenham 5.30pm 4/7 Betfred
Some things don’t ever change in football. There will always be ‘Fergie time’, Arsene Wenger will always fail to see things, and Tottenham will not win at Old Trafford.
It’s been 23 years since Spurs’ last victory at the Theatre of Dreams, and in all honestly it looks highly unlikely that AVB’s men will buck the trend while they are in their transitional stage.
Manchester United have shown their intentions by gaining some gritty wins already this term, and though Spurs can trouble any team in Europe with their counter attacking style, United hold all the aces here and should inflict another beating on Tottenham; who are yet to keep a clean sheet in the Premiership this season.
Hull City v Peterborough 3.00pm 4/9 Betfred
Hull City were building up a nice head of steam before going down 3-1 to Leicester last weekend. Consecutive wins over Bolton, Millwall, and Leeds have boosted The Tigers up to 5th in the table, and they should improve their positioning come Saturday evening with a routine victory over dire Peterborough.
The Posh sit bottom of the league with 0 points after 7 games and they already look relegation fodder. They are haemorrhaging goals like it’s going out of fashion, and although scoring the odd goal, they look nothing like the attacking threat of seasons gone by.
Hull should knock a couple past hapless Peterborough and claim another 3 points without too much drama.
A £10 bet on the above treble pays £43.20 at Betfred
