Fancy turning £10 into over £500 with a Saturday afternoon treble? Of course you do, so join us on this acca.
We’ve picked three teams to all win their respective matches. However, we cannot afford any of them to keep a clean sheet. It’s not an easy bet, but its certainly doable. With such a huge potential payout awaiting, it would be rude not to have a punt.
Everton v Bournemouth
Everton’s form at Goodison Park has been even worse than Roberto Martinez’s dance moves, but the Toffees will be quietly confident about registering a fifth home win of the campaign as they take on Bournemouth.
The visiting Cherries have already sealed their place in the division next term, which was their only aim for the season, so Eddie Howe’s men will be extremely proud. Having said that, their only win in five came against Aston Villa, which is even easier than persuading Gabby Agbonlahor to make a bad decision. It would be a little harsh to say the visitors are already on the beach, but the pressure is certainly off.
Nevertheless, they are more than capable of scoring against a leaky Toffees defence. On the other hand, Everton’s Romelu Lukaku will be determined to end his drought while Martinez will demand a big response after last week’s disappointment at Wembley.
We’re backing the Toffees to prevail, but don’t think they’ll be keeping a shutout.
Brentford v Fulham
Despite being dreadful, Fulham have been rescued by the fact that three teams were even worse this season and they can now start planning for another year in the Championship. However, we don’t think their trend of playing poorly will end as they make the short trip to Brentford, and can envisage another home win for the Bees.
Another trend that is likely to continue is Fulham’s fondness of goals. The Cottagers have been a firm favourite on the BTTS coupon this season, with the goals of Ross McCormack and Moussa Dembele often compensating for the poor defence.
However, that backline has more gaps in it than the mouth of a Jeremy Kyle guest, and that’s something that Dean Smith’s men will look to capitalise on as they bid for a sixth win in eight. Despite that record, though, they haven’t managed a clean sheet their last six, which should give Fulham a chance to score.
Still, we’d fancy the home win.
Northampton Town v Luton Town
The Cobblers have wrapped up the League Two title in style and can enter their final home match of the season with the ability to play an expansive game. That could result in a very long afternoon for visiting Luton.
Chris Wilder’s men haven’t been winning too often in recent weeks, drawing five of their last six. But they’ll be desperate to end the home campaign with a win at Sixfield and will be looking to Marc Richards and co for inspiration against the Hatters. They’ve already scored 36 home goals this term, and could easily extend that by a couple here.
Luton aren’t in bad form themselves, though, picking up 10 points from the last possible 12. That confidence should help Nathan Jones’s men against a home side that can afford to switch off slightly at the back. However, this is a tough test and we’re not sure the visitors are capable of landing the win.
After all, Northampton haven’t lost a league game since Christmas and will be eager to keep that run going. They can do it, but might need more than one goal to seal all three points in this one.
