‘One away’…

It’s a familiar story for anyone who has ever placed a football accumulator…

One 6-fold Midweek Acca was one leg away from landing the odds at 9/1.

Tottenham were the culprit, drawing 0-0 at Bournemouth. Or maybe the officials are to blame… the Premier League have said that Spurs should have had a penalty last night for a foul on Harry Kane. The match ref (and VAR team) didn’t see it that, way though.

Considering Tottenham didn’t actually manage to register a shot on target in the entire match, we can’t be too bitter.

For the season overall, that’s the fifth time we’ve been ‘one away’ from landing our Premier League match result accumulator. And a couple of those were at odds of 38/1 and 80/1. Small margins, as they say.

VAR wars…

Jose Mourinho’s interviews have been ‘fun’ lately, with a couple of dubious VAR moments going against his team. The post-match interview this Sunday could be must-watch viewing, too…

Michael Oliver was the VAR official for the Bournemouth game last night. Oliver is the match referee for Spurs v Arsenal.

What price for more controversy in the North London derby this weekend? Skybet go 6/4 (2.5) for a referee’s decision to be overturned by VAR, and odds-on at 1/2 (1.5) for that not to happen.

The Weekend Acca…

When our Match Result predictions match up, my colleague Shaun & I roll these picks into an accumulator.

This week we once again have the same opinions on 6 of the 10 games…

Premier League Acca:

  • West Ham
  • Liverpool
  • Man City
  • Wolves v Everton – Draw
  • Leicester
  • Man Utd

That 6-fold acca pays 23/1 with Betfred, 21/1 with Betway, 20/1 in general.

Correct Scores…

In the midweek round I managed to pick out two out of 10 score-lines, with Everton & Southampton drawing 1-1, and Liverpool winning 3-1 at Brighton.

Shaun & I have two matching Correct Score in our Predictions table this weekend:

  • A 0-0 draw for Wolves v Everton is 6/1 (7.0). Note: Instead of going to the Correct Score market for a goalless draw, backing ‘No Goalscorer’ in the First Goalscorer betting pays out on a 0-0, and also covers you if the only goals in the game are Own Goals (Own Goals don’t count in the Scorer markets). No Goalscorer is a top price 13/2 (7.5) with Betfred 
  • Man Utd to win 3-1 v Southampton is 12/1 (13.0) with Bet365, 10/1 (11.00) in general

We’ll be back next week with more Premier League predictions.

Enjoy the football…

Best wishes,
