Etihad win for Man City forms bedrock of four division acca
Wins for Manchester City, Reading, Coventry and Oxford complete our cross-divisional accumulator at handsome odds of 7/1.
A Premier League fixture list littered with close calls leaves the punter bereft of sure-fire, accumulator-worthy bets, so we’ve had to settle on possibly the only home banker going in the top-flight.
Norwich may have shocked the Etihad on the last day of last season, but with away-day wobbles costing Manuel Pellegrini’s side dear already this term, a continuation of their perfect home form is the minimum requirement for City.
It seems unfair to pick on poor old bottom side Sheffield Wednesday, who have paid the harsh price for four successive draws of dropping to the foot of the table.
Still, the fifth-place Royals have been fairly strong on the road, only losing once at leaders Burnley, while a 3-1 win at Derby shows they have the quality to prevail at Hillsborough.
Two teams at opposite ends of the League One form table do battle at Sixfields. Unfazed by their temporary accommodation and points deduction Coventry have been marching on regardless, taking 13 points from their last 18 available.
County, meanwhile, have lost their last five straight away trips in the division.
League Two table-toppers Oxford complete the line-up as they host a free-falling Pirates outfit who haven’t plundered maximum points in nine consecutive outings in the division.
Although Oxford’s away form has been their trump card so far, the U’s should be able to overpower this opposition at the Kassam Stadium.
