Premier League Acca Tip: Sat 10th February

No luck last weekend for me with the accumulators with Manchester City’s surprise draw with Burnley (their third away game in the Premier League in a row without a win) scuppering my Saturday tips before they had a chance to get started and likewise, Newcastle’s fine draw with Palace doing the same on Sunday.

Still, I did hit a number of other selections on the money so I’m not that far away. This is the perils of accumulator betting on such a volatile market but the good news is that you are only ever just one win away from a bumper-sized payday and a sizeable profit.

I aim for this to be the case for me this coming weekend. To improve my chances, I’m going to focus solely on the Premier League this weekend which will mean a usual fourfold bet for Saturday, but a treble on Sunday instead of another fourfold then.

I may also make a couple of shorter odds selections to try and bag that winner, although in recent weeks, some of those selections have been the ones to let me down. So I guess I’ll have to select the games this week with extra care.

One of the issues at the moment is that there’s a three tiered Premier League, there is the top six, then a group of four teams (Burnley, Leicester and just about Bournemouth and Everton) and then the remaining ten are all embroiled in the relegation battle. That gives us lots of evenly matched games each week and these can be tough to nail.

However, I’m confident that the next big win is just on the horizon and hopefully it will come with this selection of tips for Saturday.

Bet Analysis: Saturday 10th February

Tottenham Hotspur v Arsenal – Home Win – This promises to be an intriguing encounter as Tottenham face a third top six side in a row with the London derby game against their fiercest rivals Arsenal. The Gunners poor away record this season has really hampered them, but the sale of Alexis Sanchez has facilitated the signing of Henrik Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the latter of whom made a goalscoring debut in the Gunners 5-1 win over Everton last weekend. Arsenal looked superb that day, but Spurs too have been in great form of late and this should be a cracking game. I was going to go for a draw, based on the performance Arsenal put in against Everton, but their away form is shocking this season and defensively, I think they are nowhere near as good as Spurs, hence I am going for the home win here.

Everton v Crystal Palace – Home Win – The Toffees were thumped last week by a rampant Arsenal but they have not lost in their last two home games and they face a Crystal Palace side that hasn’t won in their last three games and who have relatively poor away form this season. Everton fans will know that this is a must win game as are all home games against teams lower than them in the table and the signs are that Theo Walcott at least is proving to be a shrewd acquisition for Everton. They need to get Rooney back in the team, along with Sigurdsson and if, as I expect they will, they do that, then I think the home side will get a very important win here to cement their position in the mid-table.

Swansea City v Burnley – Home Win – Since Paul Clement’s sacking Carlos Carvajal has come in and seemingly waved a magic wand at Swansea, transforming their fortunes and leading them to a six-game unbeaten run that has seen them move from bottom of the league table, to 17th and notch up wins at home against Liverpool and Arsenal. Burnley come into this game on the back of a solid point at home to Manchester City but they are now on a nine game run without a win and with Swansea flying, it is hard to see Burnley’s fragile confidence being enough to propel them to a win here to break the Swans current run of form, especially after the home side smashed eight past Notts County in the cup in midweek. Swansea to win this one by a goal to nil in my view.

Manchester City v Leicester City – Home Win – City’s recent away form has seen them pick up just two points from the last nine available, but in truth the teams behind them have failed to capitalise on this and they still hold a 13-point advantage after 26 games so far this season. Leicester’s recent form is pretty good with just one defeat in their last six games (away to Everton) but going to the Etihad to face City is nightmarish at present given the way City are performing at home against most opponents and as good as though Leicester are on the counter attack, their chances of a win are hurt due to Riyadh Mahrez situation. As such, I’m backing the home side to win this one relatively comfortably.
