|All Five Results as an Accumulator||10.10/1|
- Wolves vs Leicester City – The bookies make Wolves the favourites here, which appears to be a slight curiosity to us. They have taken just 17 points from a possible 36 at Molineux this term, while the Foxes’ away record (W7 D1 L4) is far more encouraging. It is also thought that Adama Traore – the famous golds’ best player this term- is doubtful with injury. Wolves’ unconvincing recent form (W1 D2 L3) seals the deal.
- Aston Villa vs Tottenham – Often odds inform betting choices, and by making Tottenham 5/6 here the bookies imply they have just a 54.5% of winning the game. Well, we make them a more comfortable favourite than that, with a fortnight’s rest enabling the likes of Son Heung-Min and Giovani Lo Celso to get back to full fitness. Aston Villa will give it a good go here, but that attitude can be their undoing against teams that have pace to burn on the break.
- QPR vs Stoke City – It’s now more than 270 minutes since QPR scored a Championship goal, and that’s no coincidence given that frontman Nakhi Wells returned to parent club Burnley in January after a successful loan spell with the Hoops. Predicting Stoke’s next result is always a dangerous game, but four wins in their last six – with three clean sheets in that spell – suggests they can be relied upon here.
- Accrington Stanley vs Lincoln City – Lincoln’s season is in danger of disappearing up the spout with a 1-1 home draw with low-flying MK Dons coming on the back of four straight defeats. The Imps really haven’t recovered from the exit of the Crowley brothers. Accrington are a bit more progressive, and they’ve been serving up some decent performance data this term. Two wins on the spin suggests that now is the right time to get involved.
- Bristol Rovers vs Blackpool – Price of the week must surely go to the 4/6 about Bristol Rovers avoiding defeat here: something they have achieved in 11/15 home games this term. Blackpool have won twice in 15 on the road, and there doesn’t really seem to be any reason for them to be the favourites here – they’ve won just one of their last nine games. The mind boggles!
