Premier League acca: A 9/1 acca for Saturday’s matches

Premier League acca: A 9/1 acca for Saturday’s matches

Joe Champion's picks for Saturday's top-flight action include wins for Luton and Spurs, and goals at the City Ground.

It’s a bumper Saturday of Premier League action with seven matches taking place across the top flight.

Champions Manchester City have looked in ominous form recently and will aim to take top spot, albeit likely temporarily, when they host Everton before title rivals Liverpool are in action in one of five 3pm matches.

The Reds welcome beleaguered Burnley to Anfield then Nottingham Forest and Newcastle do battle in Saturday’s evening contest. That fixture features in our Premier League acca which pays out at over 9/1.

Best bets

Luton to beat Sheffield United /
Tottenham to beat Brighton /
Wolves to beat Brentford /
Nottingham Forest v Newcastle: BTTS /

Accumulator pays 9.57/1

Luton v Sheffield United

With Man City and Liverpool both on offer at prohibitive prices, acca punters are advised to look to Saturday’s other contests for better value starting with the Kenilworth Road clash between hosts Luton and basement boys Sheffield United.

Both teams are battling relegation but 17th-placed Luton look much more likely to secure survival than the rock-bottom Blades, who head into the 24th round of Premier League matches 10 points adrift and without a win in seven league outings.

The Hatters, meanwhile, have rallied to the cause, claiming 11 points from a possible 18 in their last six matches and scoring eight goals in their last two games – a 4-0 home win over Brighton and a 4-4 draw with Newcastle. Expect them to put the Blades to the sword.

Tottenham v Brighton 

Tottenham were denied three points last weekend when Jarrad Branthwaite equalised in the 94th minute of their trip to Everton but Ange Postecoglou’s team can get back on track when they host Brighton.

The Seagulls ran out dominant 4-2 winners when these teams met at the Amex in December but Spurs are healthier now and could be boosted by the potential return of Heung-min Son, who is available following South Korea’s Asian Cup semi-final defeat.

Tottenham have won five of their last six home matches, finding only Man City too strong in the FA Cup, and they’re hosting a team who are winless in five road outings in the Premier League.

Wolves v Brentford 

Wolves moved into the top half with last Sunday’s 4-2 win at Chelsea and they can continue their upward trajectory with a win over Brentford.

That Stamford Bridge result has to be taken in the context of Chelsea’s issues, but it was also the latest positive performance for Gary O’Neil’s team, who have won four of their last six league matches with their only loss coming in a 4-3 thriller against Manchester United.

That defeat aside, Wolves have been excellent at Molineux this season with wins coming over Man City, Tottenham, Burnley, Chelsea and Everton and they can add Brentford – who have a poor road record – to that list of scalps. 

Nottingham Forest v Newcastle

Both teams can get on the scoresheet in Saturday’s final contest between Nottingham Forest and Newcastle at the City Ground.

Forest are winless in three Premier League matches but they have scored in each of their last six outings, all of which saw both teams find the net, and they’re attacking options received a boost when Taiwo Awoniyi came off the bench in the FA Cup in midweek.

The Tricky Trees beat Bristol City on penalties on Wednesday but that could leave their defenders feeling jaded for a meeting with Newcastle, who have scored at least twice in their last six matches in all competitions.
