With both preview’s now posted, we have our 12 tips for the weekend which will form the basis of our 3 accumulators – a low. medium and high risk trio of bets, catering for all budgets!
Here is the first – the low risk accumulator:
Brighton +1 Goal @ 5/6 (vs Derby 15:00 KO, English Championship – Saturday)
I really fancy Brighton to be battling with Newcastle for the title this year, they looked certain for automatic promotion for much of last season before it fell apart and the always ruthless play-off’s tore the promised land away from them. Derby were well…. Derby, they were there, but not really there, had to be considered but probably not good enough and so on. Brighton were the joint highest scorers in the league with 72 goals whilst Derby managed 66, I feel Brighton have miles more quality within their squad and should be much more the wiser after last years disappointment. Across the last five meetings there has been; two Derby win’s, two draws and a solitary Brighton win.
Southend vs Gillingham BTTS @ 5/6 (15:00 KO, English League One – Saturday)
Southend finished last season 14th, they managed to score 58 times and concede on 64 occasions. For the league the ‘goals for’ tally isn’t fantastic but they scored 30 of these goals on home soil. Gillingham sat top of the table for an extended period of time looking good value for the title, Everything went pear shaped towards the tail end of the season and they finished an eventual 9th. Gillingham scored a massive 71 goals and conceded a total 56. Southend aren’t the most exciting in front of goal but the main thing for me is Gillingham had a considerably high BTTS percentage and couldn’t keep a clean sheet in any of their last six matches.
Schaffhausen vs Le Mont: Schaffhausen -1 Goal Asian Handicap @ 4/5 (Swiss Challenge League, 1400 KO – Sunday)
Schaffhausen have started well with 2 wins out of two. Having looked back at last season they were very good at home, scoring 30 at home – nearly 2 per game. There were plenty where they bagged 3/4 goals – and one was against Le Mont, whom they beat 4-1 and 1-0 last season. When it comes to the away side – they are terrible away – 5 draws and 12 losses in their 17 games last season, and also lost 3-0 in the opening game of the season.
Confidence will be really high for the home side, who have a couple of very handy players upfront who are in great form!
Paks vs Ferencvaros: Ferencvaros Over 1.5 Team Goals @ 4/6 (Hungarian Liga I, 1700 KO – Saturday)
Ferencvaros have started the season well too – 10 scored in their opening 3 games, with a 6-2 win last weekend the highlight. 3-1 and 1-0 wins preceded that, and with their last 5 meetings ending 5-2, 2-0 and 2-1 (home), and 5-0, 1-0 (away) – Paks will be very cautious as they could be taken apart.
Looking at their squad I can see why – Lovrensics has joined from Legia Warsaw, while Djuricin has been loaned to them from Salzburg, and scored 2 in his first 3 games! Add in Roland Varga (10 in 47), Daniel Bode (60 in 120) and Andras Rado, a young winger – and you have a very good team that will no doubt win the league again this season.
This pays around 9/1
Best of luck
