Matchday 2 Accumulator Tip: Saturday 18th August

Not the greatest of starts last weekend, but the first weekend of a new season is always a bit of Accumulator Tipan eye-opener for teams and can see the form book being thrown out of the window. However as the season progresses it does become a little easier to pick the key games as teams form takes shape over the opening few weeks.

There were solid performances from Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City in particular while Crystal Palace, Bournemouth and Watford will also be happy with their starts.

After the World Cup in the summer (which saw me post a nice profit on non-acca games) I am confident that we can enjoy plenty of decent acca success this season and that starts on Saturday with four games from Matchday Two of the Premier League season, including a massive London derby between Chelsea and Arsenal.

Here’s hoping that this selection of games can result in a decent start to the acca tipping season for anybody who adds these to their bet slip.

Bet Analysis: Saturday 18th August

Cardiff City v Newcastle United – Draw

Neither of these sides got off to a positive start last week, both on the end of defeats and I think that will worry Rafa Benitez more than Neil Warnock, who is clearly aware of the limitations of his Cardiff side. Both managers will fancy three points here I am sure, but I think Cardiff at home will be a tough one for a Newcastle side that isn’t particularly confident and which hasn’t seen many new arrivals at St James’ Park over the summer. That said, the quality Newcastle have, plus a decent display against a strong Spurs team means I am backing the visitors to come away with a point here in what will likely be a score draw.

Leicester City v Wolves – Draw

Although they lost at Old Trafford, I was impressed with Leicester last week and I was also impressed with Wolves as they earned a 2-2 draw with Everton, although they were at home and did play for most of that game with Everton down to 10 men following Jagielka’s red card in the first half. Wolves have strengthened their squad very well over the last two seasons and they will be no pushover for any team and I think Leicester will feel that here. I can see the Foxes taking the lead but Wolves battling back late on in the game to secure another point.

West Ham United v Bournemouth – Home Win

After a team has lost 4-0 I don’t tend to back them to win their next game usually but I think West Ham suffered a bit at Anfield as Liverpool were very dominant in that game and this is a largely new West Ham side. Manuel Pellegrini is a shrewd manager and he has bought well this season and I think the Hammers will surprise a few teams. Bournemouth began well and Eddie Howe will have his eyes on more points here, but I think home advantage will be crucial for West Ham and I am backing them to nick this one by the odd goal.

Chelsea v Arsenal – Home Win

These two teams battled out a 1-1 draw near the end of last season but I think their fortunes have changed somewhat since then. Both have changed manager and have seen personnel move on to pastures new, as well as new faces coming in. Chelsea seem to be the most ready for the season after their 3-0 win over Huddersfield, while Arsenal struggled to contain Manchester City going down 2-0 at home last weekend. I can’t see any cheer here either for Unai Emery and his team as I think this has a strong Chelsea win written all over it.
