Football Accumulator Betting Tips – 11th February
It’s a busy Tuesday night and, whilst it isn’t quite a full fixture list, it does offer enough matches for a midweek flutter.
Here are three selections that have caught our attention. Good luck if you follow.
West Ham United v Norwich City
Arguably the biggest Premier League match of the night comes at Upton Park as West Ham United take on Norwich City in a match where both sides know that three points will install a significant gap between themselves and the relegation zone.
In the case of West Ham, they’ve seen an upturn in fortunes at just the right time. After falling into the bottom three, some questioned whether Allardyce was the right man to lead the Hammers as thoughts of relegation evolved from quiet whispers to vocal fears.
Then, buoyant by the gritty draw at Stamford Bridge, the Hammers secured back-to-back victories over Swansea and Villa and are now up to 15th; if they can make it a hat-trick of straight wins then their likelihood of survival will increase even more.
Captain Kevin Nolan has been a catalyst for the club during the last couple of weeks, registering all four goals in those wins over Swansea and Villa and if the big man can continue that form then West Ham shouldn’t have any trouble against Norwich.
The Canaries will look to West Ham’s recent progression for inspiration and will hope their determined draw with Manchester City will provide a similar platform for improvement. They’ll also be optimistic after beating the Hammers at Carrow Road.
However, the Irons are on a great little run and will be favourites to claim all three points here. If they do, it will be a very Happy Hammers indeed.

Leyton Orient V Bristol City
At Brisbane Road, League One title hopefuls Leyton Orient will be desperate to end a minor dip in form by claiming a first win in three matches.
Following recent defeats to Rotherham and Peterborough, Russell Slade’s side need three points in order to keep their title dreams alive; they couldn’t ask for a better match then Bristol City at home.
The Robins are still in the relegation zone and are unlikely to climb out of it on Tuesday. Sean O’Driscoll’s men have lost 3-1 to both Wolves and Brentford within the last month and Leyton Orient will be hoping to inflict similar punishment on the struggling Bristolians.
Orient have scored in each of their past 13 matches and should make that 14 against a City defence that has shipped 49 goals in 30 matches. Whilst the away side may well score, the home team should dominate the play and could quite easily score two or three times themselves.
If Orient are going to keep their promotion push going then three points in a match like this is imperative. They could well match the 3-1 score posted by Brentford and Wolves.
Leyton Orient Win @ 4/5 with Bet 365
Torquay United V Northampton Town
The Football League’s bottom two meet at Plainmoor and it’s a must win game for both sides.
For home side Torquay, a win could lift them out of the relegation zone and for Northampton it offers a realistic opportunity for a rare away win as they bid to keep within touching distance of safety.
The league standings don’t lie, both teams have been poor this season. However, Torquay are on a mini-run of seven points in their last four outings and I think that they can make it 10 from a possible 15 here.
It’s a long distance to travel for a League 2 side on a Tuesday night and that may also play a part.
Manager Chris Wilder’s decision to swap Oxford for Northampton was bizarre to say the least and could only have been a result of financial gain. For that reason alone, I’d quite like to see the Cobblers relegated; if they lose this one then I think they’ll already have one foot through the trap door.
Torquay Win @ 5/4 with Bet 365.
