Football accumulator tips: High noon for League One play-off hopefuls

| 08.05.2021

The regular season of the Football League concludes on Sunday when the only outstanding issue is whether either Portsmouth, Oxford or Charlton take the one remaining play-off spot in League One.

Pompey are in the driving seat, being a point clear of the other two teams, and a win at home to Accrington. which would secure a top-six spot, is available at 4/7.

We’ll take a look at all three games kicking off at noon on Sunday for our football accumulator tips.

Portsmouth v Accrington

Danny Cowley’s side host Accrington on the back of two wins and a draw from their last three games, although they had taken just one point from their previous four matches.

The teams shared a rollercoaster 3-3 draw 12 days ago when Pompey fought back from two goals to lead 3-2 with what they thought was a stoppage-time winner from John Marquis, only for the striker to score an own goal at the death.

The sides are priced at 3/1 to split the points again and 4/1 for a score draw, while over 3.5 goals is 17/10.

That has been the case in three of Portsmouth’s last four games and in three of Accy’s previous five, so hold on to your hats at Fratton Park!

Oxford v Burton

Karl Robinson’s Oxford team are next in line to benefit from a slip-up by Pompey and they have also been among the goals recently.

The Us have scored 20 and conceded eight in their last six games, five of which were victories, and they crushed the Brewers 5-1 when the teams met at the turn of the year.

Karl Robinson Oxford

Oxford conceded in all six of the above games and we go 21/10 on a home win and both teams to score is 21/10, while at least four goals is priced at 31/20.

Charlton v Hull

The Addicks are at the back of the grid in the fight for a play-off spot and in theory they have the toughest test of all against League One champions Hull.

With the title in the bag, the Tigers could be forgiven for taking their foot off the gas, although they would like to finish the season on a 15-game unbeaten run, with an away win priced interestingly at 21/10.

The Addicks are 5/4 to avenge January’s 2-0 defeat in East Yorkshire and they are also on an excellent run, losing just one of their last 14 matches, a 1-0 home loss to promoted Peterborough.

Jayden Stockley has been among the goals lately with three in his last five and he can be backed at 15/8 to find the net, while Chuks Aneke is 6/4 having scored in successive games.
