It’s time for the first Ladbrokes News Acca of the month.
It’s back to league duty this weekend, following the FA Cup fourth round last time out.
Focusing again on the 3pm kick-offs, we’ve run the rule and selected five picks from the Premier League and below.
Here’s who we’re going for this time…
Mansfield Town to beat Barnet
There are a number of teams racking up the wins in League Two, and Mansfield are one of them.
The Stags have won five and drawn three of their last eight league games. They’ve only lost once at home too.
So they should continue that run at home to bottom side Barnet. The London outfit are winless in seven and have won just one of their last 12 on the road. Mansfield are a solid price at 8/11.
Aston Villa to beat Burton Albion
Villa are on a serious charge right now. Five wins in a row with four clean sheets, Steve Bruce have got the Villans solid at the back and scoring goals.
They welcome a Burton side at the foot of the table. For what it’s worth, Albion are better on the road, but Villa should have too much for them here at 2/5.
Northampton Town to beat Rochdale
The Cobblers have transformed their form in the past month, going from relegation likely-lads to a side who’ve taken 10 points from their last four league games.
Saturday sees Jimmy Floyd Hasslebaink’s men host a Rochdale side in dire straits.
Dale have managed just two points from seven matches in League One, and now sit 23rd in the table. Victory for Northampton looks generous at 17/10.
Brighton & Hove Albion to beat West Ham United
Brighton are a point above the relegation zone but their home form could save them from the drop. They’ve not lost at the Amex to a side outside the current top four this term.
The Seagulls are 5/4 to get a vital win here. West Ham have a huge injury list and had a disappointing transfer window. They’ve also won just one of their last six games on the road.
Fulham to beat Nottingham Forest
Fulham have won their last five at home in the league and will be confident of extending that record against a Forest side who have only won once in their last seven away trips.
Both sides were active in the last days of the transfer window and the Cottagers will be hoping new striker Aleksandar Mitrovic can make an immediate impact.
You can back the London side to bag all three points at 8/13.
So there we go. This weekend’s five-fold is 25/1!
If you fancy it, you can back the acca right here.
