Football Accumulator Betting Tips – 1st March
A new month and hopefully it’ll start with a winning accumulator with this Saturday treble.
There’s a full schedule of matches across the top five divisions. Here’s our selections.
Leicester City V Charlton Athletic
They might have got a result against QPR last week but it would take a minor miracle for the Addicks to leave the King Power Stadium with anything more than defeat.
Nigel Pearson’s table-topping Foxes have been irresistible in recent months and are coasting to the Championship title with an undefeated record that stretches back to December 7. A dozen wins from 16 games gives Leicester the best home form in the division, with their only King Power defeat coming against fifth placed Nottingham Forest.
Even without taking Charlton’s own form into the equation, it will be a tall order for Chris Powell’s side.
The already daunting task becomes even more depressing for Addicks fans when they look at their away form. With just two wins on the road all season, Charlton’s position in the bottom three is easily attributed to their record outside of London.
They did produce a victory at Sheffield Wednesday on Monday, albeit in the FA Cup, but even so they will not fancy the trip to Premiership bound Leicester.
Last weekend, Charlton shocked QPR with a 1-0 triumph at The Valley to reignite their hopes of survival. Anything can happen in a derby though and normality should be restored here. Home win.

Hartlepool United V Torquay United[quote_right]Grab up to £200 in free bets when you join Bet365 – Start winning today[/quote_right]The Football League’s bottom club, Torquay United already look doomed to relegation and they simply must win their unenviable trip to Victoria Park.
With the Devonshire club cut adrift from safety by seven points, it is desperate times at Plainmoor and Chris Hargreaves side look destined for a return to the Skrill Prem after a five year stay in League Two.
Whilst their away form hardly sparkles, it’s actually the home record that will ultimately cos the Gulls their Football League status. Five wins on the road isn’t too bad and would usually see them outside the bottom two; unfortunately, with just two victories recorded at Planmoor they needed better on their travels.
Despite those five wins, they face a difficult task against Hartlepool – not least due to the travel involved. This is the longest trip that any club in England will have to make this weekend. On top of that they face a Pools side who sit sixth in the recent form chart.
After a dreadful start to the campaign, Neale Cooper’s men have improved greatly to climb up the table to 10th and will consider themselves unlucky not to achieve a play-off spot. Seven points from their last three home games is a good return and, against the division’s worst side, they’ll fancy their chances of making it 10 from a possible 12 here.
If Torquay lose this one then it’s probably game over in terms of their bid for survival. Unfortunately for Helen Chamberlain and co, that seems the most likely outcome.

Barnet V Woking
In the Skrill Premier, the high-flying Bees look to further enhance their chances of a play-off place as they host an inconsistent Woking.
Since the departure of Edgar Davids in January, Barnet have seen drastic improvement and now occupy third in the table. Whilst automatic promotion is out of the question due to Luton Town’s incredible gap at the top, a play-off spot looks very likely for the Londoners and three points here would certainly help the cause.
Following their move from Underhill last summer, Bees fans are hopeful for the perfect start to life in their new home by bouncing back to the Football League at their first attempt. Five consecutive wins, at just the right time, leaves them behind only Luton in the recent form book and Woking should not pose any real threat.
Woking’s overall form isn’t great but their recent away record is absolutely atrocious. The Cards have picked up just four points from their last six matches on the road, a complete contrast from the 12 points acquired at Kingfield during that same period, and there is no prize for spotting why they sit so lowly in the table.
Garry Hill’s side have only won five away matches all season and with a trip to Luton following this one, it is their home form that will dictate whether they survive. The Surrey side are currently nine points clear of the drop but have played more games than most.
That lead over the bottom four could well be cut short on Saturday.
