Weekend Acca Tip: Sat 28th & Sun 29th December

The thing with Christmas miracles is that everyone seems to think they will go for you. Unfortunately for me, when Jordan Ayew channelled his inner Lionel Messi to score a last minute wondergoal winner for Crystal Palace against West Ham, that miracle may have been a boon for Palace fans, but that single goal cost me what was otherwise a winning acca bet!

Being so close so often this season has been very frustrating but that kind of sums up my luck with these bets in recent weeks. With all three other games coming in as I stated, it meant another close call. Still, at least it shows that the research is paying off.

It’s a bit of a tight turnaround for the games this week with Boxing Day’s fixtures barely over (and Wolves v Man City still to be played) before we have a weekend of games across Saturday and Sunday. A ridiculously short turnaround for teams in my humble opinion.

Anyway, this could be a tricky set of tips with many teams likely to rest players for games and as such, this could make things a little trickier to predict. However, I have done my best to gaze into the crystal ball and come up with this set of tips for the weekend.

Bet Analysis: Saturday 28th December

Newcastle Utd v Everton – Draw

Newcastle started brightly against Man Utd but some uncharacteristically sloppy defending cost them dearly at Old Trafford. Everton earned a narrow win over Burnley in their first game under Carlo Ancelotti but I think this is going to be much more of a test for the Toffees. Newcastle have been in great shape at home in recent times and generally, their form at home has been solid. Everton’s away form isn’t great but I do feel they will get a bounce from Ancelotti coming in. However I can’t see that being enough for them to get a win. I am backing this one to be a closely fought draw.

Southampton v Crystal Palace – Home Win

Both these teams are in great shape heading into this game, having picked up wins in their last game. Southampton have won their last two games to move up the table and I can see them potentially making that three here. Palace are an oddity. I have never known a team so inconsistent and to be brutally honest, tipping them at times is like trying to catch wind with chopsticks. Any result is possible in this game but I think home advantage in these games, when players are tired after a busy festive program, is even more important and just ekes a little out of those tired legs and on that basis, I am going to go for a narrow home win for Southampton here.

Bet Analysis: Sunday 29th December

Arsenal v Chelsea – Away Win

Two of the most inconsistent teams in the Premier League at the moment meet at the Emirates in what is a tough game to predict. Mikel Arteta saw an improvement in attitude, if not results, when his team drew on Boxing Day, but Chelsea suffered another home defeat against lowly Southampton. However Frank Lampard’s side have been better away from home this season and I think they have the quality to hurt what still looks to be a very weak and porous Arsenal back line. I can’t see Arteta turning around Arsenal’s fortunes as quickly as many are expecting and I can see Chelsea bouncing back to claim an important win on the road here.

Manchester City v Sheffield United – Home Win

I am writing this before City face Wolves on the 27th December and it is ridiculous that both City and Wolves have to play two Premier League games within three days. There is no doubt that this weekend of fixtures should have been moved to a midweek date, but it is what it is. City do have the squad to be able to cope and I think, regardless of the result at Wolves, they should get a result at home against a talented and tricky Sheffield United side who have been playing some outstanding football of late. However the Etihad is a tough place to go and pick up a win, even with the Blades fine defence and I am expecting the home side to win this one pretty comfortably.
