If you’ve been following our predictions you’ll know the rules already. But here’s a run down if this is your first time delving into our quest to place the perfect 10 fold. You have to select 10 games (no more than two from one division). You have to select at least 2 away wins and at least 1 draw. And you are only allowed to pick 1 absolute banker.
Once you have made your picks, head over to Skybet (or your preferred betting partner) and pop a quid on it. Be sure to send us your predictions too!
This week you could spend £1 to make £457 and here’s how:
Gillingham vs Blackburn Rovers – League One table toppers Blackburn head to Gillingham in a fine run of form having picked up 17 points from their last 7 games. Over that same span the Gills have picked up only 9 points so I’ll go with the form on this one.
Scunthorpe United vs Shrewsbury Town – Scunthorpe’s form over the last few weeks has been questionable at best but they still find themselves clinging onto a play off place in League One. Having drawn 4 of their last 5 matches, including an impressive 3-3 draw at Wigan last week, I think they will continue their drawing ways and hold 3rd in the league Shrewsbury to a single point. Draw.
Accrington Stanley vs Forest Green Rovers – having toppled Luton Town last week to become the first team to top the League Two table since mid-November, Accrington Stanley welcome the only vegan football club in the league to the Crown Ground. Forest Green are currently 20th in the league, and despite winning 11 points from their last 6 games I think Stanley will prove too tough of a challenge.
Crewe Alexandra vs Coventry City – Coventry let a 2 goal lead slip in a 2-2 draw with Luton in midweek but I think they will take a lead and hold onto it in this one. Crewe have improved of late but have still lost 6 of their last 10 and unfortunately for them I think the Sky Blues will make that 7 of 11.
AFC Fylde vs Hartlepool United – AFC Fylde have been storming up the football league in recent years and it looks like Hartlepool are plummeting in the opposite direction. Last week saw Fylde dominate in a 7-1 win over Aldershot while Hartlepool were held to a goalless draw by Boreham Wood, and I think Fylde’s charge for a playoff place will continue with a win today.
Valencia vs Deportivo Alaves – I don’t claim to be a master of European football but I don’t need to be to tell you Valenica will beat Alaves today. Alaves have lost 3 of their last 4 and sit 16th in La Liga, while Valencia sit 4th after a 6 game unbeaten streak.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs 1. FSV Mainz 05 – These 2 teams met a little over a month ago in the DFB Cup and Frankfurt ran out 3-0 winners. I don’t see a turn around in today’s match-up and think Frankfurt will pick up more points in what has been a fine season for them.
Spal vs Juventus – a whopping 50 (FIFTY) points separate these 2 teams in the Serie A table. When the teams met in October Juventus were 4-1 winners. I can’t see anything other than a win for the Old Lady.
FC Zurich vs Bsc Young Boys – this is a game I have literally no clue about, but Young Boys sit top of the Swiss Super League after winning 18 of a possible 25 matches this season, and while a trip to 4th place Zurich will be a tough test I think the Boys can come out with a win.
Brechin City vs Dumbarton – poor old Brechin City. They have played 26 games this season and have just 4 points. That’s not a typo. 0 wins, 4 draws and 22 losses. 4 points. Dumbarton sit just one place above them in the table with 24 points, so if Brechin were ever going to get a win you’d say today was their best chance. But it’s just not going to happen.
Betfred 10 fold acca price – 457/1
Lock of the week – Accrington Stanley
League Two is all over the place this season but one thing that has remained constant the past few weeks is the form of Stanley.
Potential Acca crasher – Scunthorpe vs Shrewsbury Draw
While league position indicates this is a likely possibility the form does not. I am worried Shrewsbury will eek out a win but Scunthorpe are draw merchants so I am putting my faith in them.
