NFL Acca: Giants and Chiefs headline big fourfold attempt

The Ladbrokes News team are a generous bunch. Every Sunday they scour the NFL form to find the best accumulator for the America’s favourite weekend sporting occasion and this week is no different.

For the NFL’s 12th week of fixtures we bring you a fourfold that pays £120 to a £10 stake and include some underdogs expected to hold their own against the spread:

Minnesota Vikings (+2.5) to beat Atlanta Falcons @ 10/11

Atlanta face Minnesota as the favourites, but are in poor form and are suffering a raft of injuries.

Having lost three in a row, they stand a tough test against the Vikings, who recently won five on the spin until coming up against a strong Green Bay Packers outfit last time out.

The Vikings also won out the last time these two met, taking a 41-28 victory in September last year.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+3) to beat Indianapolis Colts @ 5/6

These two both hold identical 5-5 records, but at quarterback they couldn’t be more different.

Tampa Bay will start with the youngest passer in the NFL, while injury to their first-choice slinger means Indianapolis will begin the game with the oldest.

Andrew Luck’s injury has Matt Hasselbeck in the spotlight and the veteran has coped well, winning all three starts.

However, under Jameis Winston the Bucs are looking to win their third game in a row and with a headstart on the handicap, can prevail in this bet.

New York Giants (-2.5) to beat Washington Redskins @ 20/21

Over the last five meetings, New York has outscored Washington 145-71. Their last three wins over the Redskins came with Jay Gruden as Washington’s coach and Eli Manning has particularly enjoyed the matchup.

The Giants quarterback has thrown nine touchdown passes and for 829 yards in that three game win-streak over Gruden and despite Washington winning their last five at home, can continue the Giants’ success.

Kansas City Chiefs (-5) to beat Buffalo Bills @ 10/11

The Chiefs have clawed their way back into playoff contention following a harrowing 1-5 start by playing superbly to win their next four outings.

During that streak they have outscored their opponents 130-39 and have excelled both with and without the ball.

However, it is the defence that will really help this bet land as the Arrowhead Stadium side have allowed an average of just 12.2 points per game across their last six, which should help keep the Bills’ tally low enough to surpass a five-point handicap.

It's not just cricket that interests him though, with football, golf, tennis and any American sport not played on ice all high on his list of favourites.
