CAMBRIDGE UNITED 11/8 (Away v Scunthorpe. KO 15:00)

BRISTOL CITY 13/8 (Away v Barnsley. KO 15:00)

JUVENTUS 4/11 (Away v Crotone. KO 19:45)

CONFIDENCE: 6/10

OVERVIEW: Another week and another accumulator to keep tabs on. This time round all the fixtures are on Saturday (today) Thought process being we could possibly do another daft one tomorrow should we have a winner today.

The main thing to note on this line is the high odds for only 4 selections. I’ve done the extensive research and can’t see any reason why this wouldn’t have a good chance. The slightly lower confidence rating is the fact there must be a something to make this price is so high but I’m yet to find it. Heres hoping nothing has slipped through the net of chance.

Also, look at the range of teams. We go from the elite, elegant end of Serie A to blood and guts league 2 in only four selections. Superb stuff and something for everyone.

PICKS: Chelsea have made an indifferent start to the Premier League season. However this does not include their home form which has been very impressive. The blues have won 9 of their last 10 matches at Stamford bridge with the only failure being against champions Liverpool. Bread and butter matches like these are crucial if they want to be classed as serious title contenders. HOME WIN.

Cambridge United sit pretty in 2nd position of League 2 after 5 matches having scored 10 and only conceding 3 in that time. Opponents Scunthorpe, on the other hand, have only picked up 4 points from their first 5 and languish down in 20th. AWAY WIN.

Bristol City have flown out of the championship blocks winning all their 4 matches so far. What more they play a Barnsley side who have yet to win and have only managed 1 goal in the process. We’re going with form here for sure. AWAY WIN.

Juventus are Juventus, they win matches. Despite being without talisman Christiano Ronaldo, they will have enough to beat bottom side Crotone who have lost all 3 matches in Serie A so far by at least 3 goals. Should be a comfortable one tonight to WRAP UP THE ACCA.

NEWPORT COUNTY & DRAW 4/11 (Away v Cambridge United)

CONFIDENCE: 6/10

OVERVIEW: It’s the DREADED international break which is a right nuisance. This means the week’s accumulator is a bit different but actually much of the same. Different in the fact it’s 4 random selections not based on research or knowledge but simply, league position and gut feeling. The same as in the format. £10, 4 teams looking for the match result. What this line lacks in knowledge, it makes up for in the fact that each selection has a double chance. What’s more is that all the matches are Saturday 3 o clock kick offs, a rare event in my usual accumulator picks.

I’m not going to go through each team like usual and give my reasons for the selections because all the picks were decided on a quick glance at the respective League 1 and 2 tables and pure gut feeling. What I will say is we have two big clubs on the line in Wigan and Sir Bobby Robson’s team Ipswich. We also have Newport county who I was pretty impressed with when they faced Newcastle in the league cup and, at present, they sit top of League 2. Selecting Morecambe was simply a case of 2nd top v 3rd bottom and as they say the league table does not lie.

Remember as these selections are double chance with a draw in each game good also enough to LAND THE ACCA so, weirdly, I’m quietly confident.

STAGE 4

ENGLAND v WALES OVER 2.5 GOALS 13/20

  • STAKE: £33.75
  • RETURNS: £55.69

OVERVIEW: Barcelona and Seville did not disappoint in stage 3 and we role on to 4 tonight, albeit a few days late. I was hoping to have the £100 challenge wrapped up by now but the international break put a dampener on the fixture list and enforced a couple of days break.

Looking ahead to tonight’s stage 4 match, I think we’ve got another corker on our hands and one that should take us to step 5. England host Wales in a friendly and all we require is 3 goals in the game to progress. The shackles should be off the players but the game will still contain that competitive edge given the rivalry between the two sides. Also, given the form or messers Kane, Sterling and potential debutant Dominic Calvert-Lewin, what’s to say this stage won’t be complete by half time.

Despite drawing 0-0 last time out, England have managed 18 goals in their last 5 international matches, an average well over the required amount tonight, not forgetting the potential of the Welsh finding the net which would be just as welcome.

GO FOR GOAL.

STAGE 3

• BARCELONA v SEVILLA – BOTH TEAMS TO HAVE 1+ CORNERS IN EACH HALF 1/2

  • STAKE: £22.50
  • RETURNS: £33.75

OVERVIEW: Arsenal wrapped up stage 2 with a comfortable victory over Sheffield United. The running total is now up to £22.50 so slowly we make our way toward the magic £100 mark.

Moving onto stage 3 straight away I’ve found a little corker in Spain tonight. Barcelona host Seville and all we are looking for is for each team to be awarded a corner in each half. Barcelona have had 11 corners in their first 2 La Liga matches while Seville have had 9 so this sounds simple enough. These 2 sides are amongst Spain’s most attacking sides and at 1/2 this is exactly what we need to keep this challenge going.

A CORNER A CORNER!

STAGE 2

ARSENAL TO WIN 1/2 (Home v Sheffield United KO 14:00)

  • STAKE: £15
  • RETURNS: £22.50

OVERVIEW: As expected we cruised through the first stage, Ipswich managing their goal in the 7th minute, Everton in the 16th. It doesn’t get more resounding than that so we are looking for more of the same today please.

On to stage 2 and despite this being the same odds this selection looks a bit more tricky than the first. That’s not to say I’m not majorly confident because I am. Arsenal have started with 2 wins from 3 games and their only defeat was to last season’s runaway champions Liverpool. Their opponents Sheffield United have lost all their Premier League matches so far and are also winless in their last 7 league away trips. I think the run will continue today and take us to stage 3. GUNNERS!

RENNES 4/7 (Home v Reims. Sunday KO 16:00)

LIVERPOOL 2/7 (Away v Aston Villa. Sunday KO 19:15)

CONFIDENCE: 7/10

OVERVIEW: The usual carry on again this week. £10 stake on 5 teams, spread over the weekend. The only thing to really note within the selections is there is only one match on Saturday, the dodgy one. If Roma can get through it with a big fat W then this acca will take some beating. Had the odds boosting Italians not been on this line my confidence rating would have been at a lofty 9. Here’s why.

PICKS: Udinese have lost both of their opening 2 matches in Serie A and still haven’t registered a goal. What perfect opportunity for Roma to kick start their season and kick start the acca.

Ajax have made the perfect start in Eredivisie and face a Groningen side who have only scored 1 goal in their first 3 matches. Playmaker Dusan Tadic has scored 6 goals in 8 appearances against the home side and could be key again here. Comfortable away win.

Arsenal will be looking to put last week’s Anfield disappointment behind them and what perfect way to do that with a home match against second bottom Sheffield United. The away side have lost all their games so far and are yet to register a goal. Aubameyang inspired home win.

Rennes have made a flying start to the new Ligue 1 season and sit top of the tree. Unbeaten in 5 that include 4 wins, they face a Reims side who have only picked up 1 point from their opening 5 matches. Both runs to be extended here. Home win.

Who can stop Liverpool at the moment? The champions have picked up where they left off last season by sweeping aside all before them. Despite Villa’s decent start to the season, they will come unstuck here and the scousers will be WRAPPING UP THE ACCA late Sunday night.

STAGE 1

– EVERTON & IPSWICH TO SCORE 1 OR MORE GOALS 1/2 (Boosted Paddy Power special)

  • STAKE: £10
  • RETURNS: £15

OVERVIEW: Something a bit different to accompany the usual accumulator this week.

The plan is to start with a stake of £10 and try and turn it into £100 in the space or 5 or 6 bets. Each bet will be in the region of between 1/2 and evens unless there’s a boost or something too good to turn down that’s higher.

The aim is to get nailed on single bankers or specials and roll the winnings of each onto the next stage until the rolling total hits the one hundred pound mark or beyond. I’m going to try and complete one stage per day but if there’s nothing to go at on any given day we can wait. The key thing is to reach £100.

STAGE 1 PICK: Great little boosted special to start the challenge, both Everton and Ipswich have started their respective seasons with a 100% win record from their first 3 matches. All we need here is for both sides to score in their next. Simple stuff which should get the ball rolling slowly.

LET’S GO!

CHELSEA 1/3 (Away v West Brom. Saturday KO 17:30)

MARSEILLE 4/7 (Home v Metz. Saturday KO 20:00)

PORTO 4/11 (Away v Boavista. Saturday KO 21:00)

AC MILAN 4/9 (Away v Crotone. Sunday KO 17:00)

CONFIDENCE: 8/10

OVERVIEW: On paper this week’s line up looks an excellent one. 5 teams, all historic European elite sides pitted against lesser opposition. What could possibly go wrong?!

In terms of a viewing perspective, no supporters permitted in stadiums has seen more televised action than ever with the kick off times far more spread out to accommodate this. Quite frankly, it’s ideal for being able to watch your selections unfold. This line is no different as the matches are spread over Saturday and Sunday, no kick off time the same.

I reiterate the strength of these picks again but quite often the ones you are most confident about are the ones that come unstuck. Here’s hoping not this one.

PICKS: Dortmund got their league campaign off to a great start with a 3-0 success last week, Erling Haaland bagging a brace. Their opponents Augsburg have never won their first home game of a Bundesliga season and that bizarre streak should continue here. Away win.

West Brom have lost both of their opening 2 Premier League matches and conceded 8 goals in the process. Chelsea will be looking to capitalise with their plethora of new stars. It should be a routine win for the blues if they are to have any aspirations of a serious title challenge this year. Another away win.

Both Marseille and their opponents Metz have been involved in relatively low scoring affairs at the start of the season. You would expect the extra quality of the home side to shine through in these situations with Florian Thauvin a possible key to the door. The skilful winger has already bagged a winner in le classique in previous weeks. Home win.

Porto were pretty much unstoppable in the Primeira Liga last year and have started this campaign in similar vein. They have won 8 of their last 9 games and I expect them to make it 9 in 10. Boavista have been a very mixed bag in recent times. Away win.

Milan are unbeaten in 16 matches, their best run since 2008. The Italian giants should extend that sequence against Crotone who were drubbed 4-1 on the opening weekend. Milan will be without Zlatan who tested positive in the week but should still have more than enough fire power to WRAP UP THE ACCA Sunday tea time.

LEICESTER 4/7 (Home v Burnley. Sunday KO 19:00)

REAL MADRID 4/6 (Away v Real Sociedad. Sunday KO 20:00)

CONFIDENCE: 7/10

OVERVIEW: Another straight forward weekend for the accumulator. 4 teams, all to win with the matches spread over Saturday and Sunday. The bonus this week being that this is the refunded free £10 bet from last week’s line. The result of only one selection letting down the lads.

In terms of the picks, there’s a couple of question marks and teams I wouldn’t have usually selected but looking at the broader fixture list it was a very tough game week overall and not a great deal stood out. Also not forgetting we are so early in the season with teams still finding their feet, match sharpness etc. These teams were as good as was available in my opinion.

Having said all that, at 9/1, this line is cracking value and I’m quietly confident.

PICKS: Arsenal flew out the traps last week pretty emphatically. They’ll be looking to build on that start at home to a poor West Ham side. The away team were comfortably beaten at home against Newcastle last weekend and offered very little to suggest they’ll trouble the gunners this time round. Easy home win.

Newcastle will looking to make it 3 wins in a week at home to Brighton. The new signings at St.James’ park have all made an immediate and positive impact which should see the magpies have a relatively comfortable season. The seagulls on the other hand lost their opener albeit against title hopefuls Chelsea. This is a slightly risky selection but at 13/8 boosts the line price significantly. Allan Saint-Maximin the one to watch here. Home win.

Leicester have made another positive start to the season. I fancy them strongly at home to Burnley, who get their campaign under way at the King Power. That extra weeks match fitness could be pivotal for the foxes and should yield the win we need. Home win.

Spanish champions Real Madrid get their league season underway at Real Sociedad. Los Blancos are unbeaten in their last 5 away La Liga matches and will be looking to extend that run. Karim Benzema was in red hot form last term and I fancy him to get the goals the WRAP UP THE ACCA.

CONFIDENCE: 6/10

OVERVIEW: The new football season kicks off in England today and with it the weekly ACCA is back. The last accumulator was a winner so I’m hoping to get a little run together.

The first day of the season is always a betting minefield and it usually takes a few weeks to work out which teams are going to be continued favourites week in week out. The flip side to this is that the bookies are also unsure which usually means slightly increased odds.

The 4 selections are over Saturday and Sunday with 10/1 looking excellent value, this despite each team picked being away from home. Another couple of things to note is that 3 of the 4 matches on the slip include teams that have either been relegated or promoted from last season and 2 of 4 matches are the early kick off’s on Saturday which is something I’d usually avoid. Again with it being first day of the season anything can happen and as the stadiums are still empty it makes for a bigger lottery. It’s for these reasons the confidence rating is slightly down but I’m happy with the choices none the less.

PICKS: Despite just winning just 4 away Premier League games all season last year, you’d still fancy Arsenal at newly promoted Fulham who scraped back into the elite league via the championship playoffs. The gunners have impressively added free transfer Willian during the off season and that could make a big difference for them this season, as well as the retention of star man Pierre-Emmerick Aubameyang. Away win.

Brentford were one of the teams of the Championship last year and just fell short of promotion in the playoffs. They have lost key player Ollie Watkins during the summer but have added league one top goalscorer Ivan Toney as replacement. Birmingham haven’t won in their last 8 home league games and I reckon it will be extended in this one.

Norwich will be looking to bounce straight back to the big time at the first attempt and they have managed to keep the majority of their squad together over the summer. The Cannaries away form last season was terrible albeit in the Premier League. They should fair better in the lower division and will be sure to be up there amongst the promotion favourites. Their opponents, Huddersfield, have lost 9 of their last 10 games on opening day, another one please.

LEICESTER were very impressive last season and looked certain for a champions league spot until they were curtailed by lockdown and their form dipped. Last season’s Premier League top goalscorer Jamie Vardy will be looking to carry on where he left off and it’s a good chance for a fast start against freshly promoted West Brom. Leicester have won on their last 4 visits to the Hawthorns. Make it 5 on Sunday and WRAP UP THE ACCA.
