27th of March, 7/1 Accumulator
Some tasty looking action from both England and Scotland today so I’ve picked out my five best bets for an acca. I’ve attached research too so have a read before placing the bet.
Do you have a Betfair account? If not then how does having a risk free shot at winning £160 on the acca sound? Just follow these steps:
1️⃣ Register an account > HERE <
2️⃣ Place £20 on the acca > LOAD IT HERE <
✔️ It wins = you win £160 cash.
🔙 It loses = they refunded your £20 stake back into your account in cash.
It’s as simple as that! If you can’t use the risk free offer on it then remember to keep your stakes sensible. I’m placing this bet purely for a bit of fun whilst the matches are on.
If you’d be annoyed at losing your stake then lower it so that you won’t be or don’t place the bet at all – it’s as simple as that. Keep your gambling FUN!
Blackpool v Plymouth (Blackpool win)
· Blackpool will be looking to keep their fantastic recent form going this afternoon as they host a struggling Plymouth side at Bloomfield Road.
· They go in to today on the back of an unbeaten run which has now stretched to 10 games having not lost since Early February as Neil Critchley and his side continue their charge in to the playoff places.
· They currently sit 6th but have 2/3 games in hand on many of the sides around them so have a real chance of securing at least a playoff place come the end of the season.
· Plymouth meanwhile put a stop to a 5 game losing streak with a home win against Bristol Rovers last weekend.
· They currently sit 16th and in reality have very little to play for from here on in with both a playoff place and relegation very unlikely meaning the season could quite possibly peter out for them.
· The visitors also have to contend with a 600+ mile round trip to Bloomfield Road. Being situated in Devon means they often face lengthy away trips and it is no real surprise to see they have one of the worst away records in the division.
· They have accumulated just 14 points on the road which is the joint worst in the division alongside Northampton and Bristol Rovers.
· The hosts have a few injury issues to contend with but many of the players out have been unavailable for some time and they have coped admirably in their absence.
· Expect the Tangerines to seal another home win here which could see them go as high as 5th come the end of the weekend.
Bristol Rovers v Sunderland (Sunderland win)
· No side has been in better form in League One since the turn of the year than Sunderland who have accumulated 23 points from a possible 30 over the past 10 games.
· The Black Cats know a win at the Memorial Stadium this afternoon could see them go in to the top two which of course offers automatic promotion come the end of the season.
· Fan favourite Luke O’Nien has been speaking this week and he said that there is a genuine belief in the camp that they are the best team in the division and are capable of winning each of their last 10 remaining league games and securing promotion.
· Lee Johnson has breathed a new lease of life in to the club since taking over December and turned the squad morale around completely. They go in to today having won 8 of their last 10 league games.
· Quite the opposite is going on at Bristol Rovers who are very much in a relegation scrap and the recent appointment of Joey Barton as manager hasn’t had the desired impact with him having lost 6 of his 9 games in charge.
· Rovers go into today’s game having taken just four points from the last 21 available, having lost three games in a row. It leaves them fourth bottom and facing relegation and Barton has conceded he is worried about his sides chances of staying up.
· He publically criticises his players following their midweek defeat to Swindon claiming a number of them were ‘Scared of their own shadows’.
· Given the respective form and confidence of both sides going in to today it is hard to see past a comfortable away win.
Carlisle v Cambridge (Cambridge DC)
· Promotion-chasing Cambridge make the trip to Carlisle this afternoon knowing a win could take them to the top of the League Two table should Cheltenham fail to beat Morecambe.
· Cambridge have retained their position in the automatic promotion spots, with the U’s on 64 points from 37 matches. Mark Bonner’s side have recorded four victories from their last six matches to remain in the hunt for promotion with nine games to go.
· A real contrast of fortunes at Brunton Park where Carlisle who have been on a truly woeful run of form since the turn of the year continue to plummet down the table.
· Following victory against Exeter City on January 30, the Cumbrians have dropped from second to 12th place in the table. They have registered just 6 points from their last 12 matches and have suffered greatly from disruptions in their playing schedule this season.
· Chris Beech’s side faced almost a month without fixtures in January, with a four week gap in games between January 2 and 30. A combination of Covid and weather postponements really halted Carlisle in their tracks and looks to have in reality killed their season.
· Many of the Carlisle faithful are now calling for Beech to be sacked such has been their downfall in recent months. The quality of football being played isn’t considered good enough and there is no doubt Beech is now under pressure.
· There really is no better time to face Carlisle with the club looking to be in disarray. Expect Cambridge to at the very least pick up a draw in Cumbria this afternoon.
Crawley v Port Vale (Crawley DC)
· Playoff chasing Crawley will be chomping at the bit to get back in action this afternoon having had a full week to recover and prepare for the visit of Port Vale.
· Crawley sit six points off the play-offs, which is still doable, but Crawley will be solely focused on just winning as many games as they can between now and the end of the season.
· Vale have had a recent upturn in form which has probably taken them away the threat of relegation and in reality they now have very little to play for between now and the end of the season.
· John Yems is doing a fantastic job at the helm at Crawley and having read some fan forums there are many believe that this is the best team they have had in their history.
· Finding gems like Max Watters, who joined in October and left for Cardiff in January, isn’t easily repeated but generally Crawley benefit from exceptional transfer business.
· Experienced players such as George Francomb at the back and Tom Nichols up front have given the likes of Jake Hessenthalerand Tom Dallison the chance to progress and flourish.
· They are very strong at home and are unbeaten in 5, winning 4 and in that run have conceded just one goal. They boast one of the best records in the division with just Cambridge and Salford having better records.
· It won’t be a walk in the park for Crawley against an improving Port Vale side but their home form is exceptional and they have much more to play for than Vale do this afternoon and I suspect they will come out on top.
Forfar Athletic v Falkirk (Falkirk win)
· We round the acca up in Scotland where we head to Scottish League One where I expect league leaders Falkirk to get the job done as they head to struggling Forfar this afternoon.
· Following the resumption of the league after a 2 month break due to Covid, Falkirk have been in perfect form winning both in the league and cup and extending their lead at the top of the table to 4 points.
· A recent change in shape to 5 in midfield has worked wonders for Falkirk. Defender Mark Durnan has said the team are full of confidence and promotion is the minimum expectation for his side this season.
· Forfar meanwhile will be more focused on avoiding the drop and things aren’t looking particularly rosy at the moment having accumulated just 9 points from their 11 league games played.
· It isn’t even like they have been unlucky either, performances have generally been poor and they are undoubtedly one of the weakest teams in the division.
· The visitors have no real injury issues or key absentees to report and I expect them to have far too much quality for a poor Forfar side this afternoon and seal the 3 points.
