What’s better than winning a 50/1 acca? Winning a 50/1 acca at treble the odds. Well, that’s exactly what we’ll be looking on Saturday thanks to the 888sport welcome bonus.
If you’re already a member, a payout of over £530 from a tenner will still sound very attractive. However, for new customers, we’re hoping that these three selections can turn that £10 stake into over £1,500.
What a way to celebrate St George’s Day it would be.
Liverpool v Newcastle United
Despite picking up four points from the last two matches, Newcastle’s chances of survival remain thinner than Rafa Benitez’s hair. And unfortunately for the new Magpies boss, a return to his former employer is unlikely to help their chances.
Liverpool are in fantastic form, which was underlined by the midweek demolition of local rivals Everton. Even with Divock Origi suffering an injury, the Merseysiders have more than enough quality to see off the visitors in this one and will be looking to the likes of Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho to ensure that it happens.
Newcastle are likely to provide a bigger attacking threat than Everton, although that’s not saying much at all. Andros Townsend, Aleksandar Mitrovic and Ayoze Perez have all shown glimpses of being able to give Jurgen Klopp’s men a scare. Unfortunately, their downbeat defence is likely to be their Achilles heel once more.
These sides have produced some of the most enthralling matches of the Premier League era. We’re not sure that this one will quite reach that billing, but we do think there will be goals. On this occasion, we have to fancy the hosts to prevail.

Hull City v Leeds United
Massimo Cellino is as welcome at Elland Road as a fart in a lift and Leeds fans will be hoping that these final three matches will be their last under this owner. On the pitch, though, the Lilywhites have improved with three wins on the spin. Unfortunately for them, that run could come to an abrupt end against high-flying Hull.
Steve Evans side can at least be confident about scoring after finding the net in nine of their last 10 outings. The firepower of Chris Wood and Mirko Antenucci has already bagged 20 goals this term and they can punish a home side that’s conceded in four straight matches.
On the other hand, Leeds have failed to keep a shutout in any of their last eight matches, which could be a major problem as they look to tame the Tigers. Steve Bruce’s side boasts a variety of potential goal sources while 18-goal striker Abel Hernandez will see this as a great chance to score for the second time in a week too.
We expect a home win, but a resurgent Leeds can at least give the promotion hopefuls a run for their money.

Colchester United v Burton Albion
In League One, Colchester United are fully expecting to see relegation confirmed this weekend regardless of their result. Sadly, even if the other scores do go their way, we can’t see the Eagles doing anything to delay the inevitable.
That’s because they face a Burton Albion that will be desperate to find its return to winning ways. Three points would form a huge step as Nigel Clough’s men look to seal promotion. They might not score too many goals on the road, but the Brewers will be licking their lips at the prospect of this one due to the fact Colchester have shipped 38 home goals.
The hosts have registered 31 at the right end, though, and can be quietly optimistic against a side that’s failed to win any of its last six. Sadly for the home fans, a lack of quality is likely to shine through, even if their team does score in its penultimate home game in League One.
Both teams look set to leave this division in very different circumstances, and that should be evident in Saturday’s scoreline. Nevertheless, the hosts can get a consolation, which is why we think the odds on this one are far too good to ignore.
