Just two weeks into the new football league season and the betpal lower league football accumulator is already in profit, having fired in a treble last weekend with odds of 12.69 (just under 12/1). A £20 bet at the time of publication would have earned you healthy returns of £253.80! This week we’ve lined up another treble and we’re confident of further success. Saturday’s acca is currently a best price of 8.46 (around 15/2) with BetVictor, a £20 stake would return £169.20. To find out who’s in this weekend’s lower league football accumulator bet, read on…
Football Accumulator Betting Tips
1 – Bournemouth vs Wigan
Despite suffering a Community Shield defeat to Manchester United at the weekend, Wigan can take plenty of positives away from their trip to Wembley as they were far from disgraced. Now able to focus on the serious matter of getting back to the Premier League, last season’s FA Cup winners should have no problem in turning over a Bournemouth side that were utterly humiliated by Watford on Saturday. Grant Holt is already off the mark in a Wigan shirt, as are three other Latics players after they thumped Barnsley away from home in their only Championship match so far this season, and I can see further goals on Saturday.
I felt that Bournemouth were lucky to win promotion last season, achieving it through having been consistently less bad than the other top sides in League One, rather than consistently good (for example, Sheffield United took six points from them, while Doncaster won at Dean Court and Brentford, Milton Keynes and Swindon all left there with points) and the only surprise to me in their 6-1 drubbing by Waford was that they were found out so quickly into the season. A side as strong as Wigan should have no problem picking up all three points here and at a best price of 2.10 with Coral, it would be daft not to include them in your weekend football accumulator bets.
2 – Walsall vs Notts County
I have been a big fan of backing Walsall in the past as I think they are often underrated by the bookmakers simply because of who they are. Dean Smith gets his side playing good football and achieving results on a tight budget and I have plenty of time for him as a manager. The Saddlers were not far short of the Play-Offs last term and I fancy them to be in and around the top eight again this year, especially given that they’ve already picked up six points from a tricky couple of opening matches.
Notts County didn’t look up to much on the opening day of the League One season, before managing to concede four goals at home to Peterborough in their second game. I suppose you could argue that those results came against two of the sides expected to do well this campaign, but winning (and indeed losing) is a habit and the early form of the two sides could not be any more contrasting. At a current best price of 2.20 with Stan James, I can’t help but feel that the bookies are insulting Walsall; if it were Tranmere or Milton Keynes hosting County on Saturday, two sides that finished with similar points hauls to the Saddlers last season, I reckon the price would be considerably shorter. On that basis, they look like a solid value addition to our weekend football accumulator.
3 – Cheltenham vs Plymouth Argyle
We may have opposed Cheltenham last week due to the strength of opponents Chesterfield and their ropey away record last season, but for this weekend at least, we’re Robins fans. Without a win from a tricky couple of opening matches, Cheltenham can begin to put their season back on track at home to a Plymouth side that have also started poorly, having lost both of their opening matches without scoring a goal. I reckon the Robins are good value additions to our accumulator bet too, at a current best price of 1.92 with BetVictor.
John Sheridan’s side haven’t really strengthened much this summer, which isn’t great for Pilgrims fans given that they amassed just 52 points in League Two last season, a tally that saw them finish just a single point clear of the drop into Non-League football. By contrast, Cheltenham were just three points shy of automatic promotion to League One and that difference in class is sure to tell sooner rather than later. Whaddon Road was something of a fortress last season; they conceded just 16 times there (the joint best home record in the league) and lost only twice (nobody could better this). As for Plymouth on the road, only three teams collected fewer points.
Where To Place Your Accumulator
Interestingly, for the third week in a row, BetVictor are the bookmakers offering the best price on our recommended lower league football accumulator bet, despite only being the best price about one of our three selections. The fact that they offer consistently good prices about football matches is the reason behind that.
Remember that everyone registering a new account account through us will net a free £25 bet – why not lump that on our acca as well?
Whether you choose to back our tips as a stand alone treble or simply include them in a bigger accumulator bet of your own, we wish you the best of luck with your football betting this weekend!
