30th October: Saturday’s Football Accumulator – 9/1

With a stacked Premier League schedule taking center stage this weekend, we have a host of noteworthy meetings from across the footballing world. So, for those of you looking to stick on a Saturday flutter, we have found a handful of helpful tips that are worth keeping an eye out for.

Saturday October 30th

BST 14:00 Northampton Town vs Carlisle United

Starting with Saturday’s hosts, while Northampton might have lost their League One status earlier in the year, they really have their sights set on securing an immediate third-tier return. Managing to find their feet since opening the 2021/22 campaign, the Cobblers are enjoying what has been a recent purple patch. Putting in another professional display last weekend, Jon Brady’s men claimed a deserved 2-0 win away at Tranmere and the mood in their camp should be at a real high. Opening Saturday’s fixtures sat third in the table and knowing they have a golden chance to make up some ground, Northampton have won each of their last three League Two matchups on the spin. With their recent run highlighted by a 3-0 romp against Stevenage on October 19th, this weekend’s hosts have also continued to impress with their displays at the back. Recording a clean sheet in each of their three consecutive victories, it should also be noted that they have landed back-to-back wins on home soil. Holding a rampant record against Carlisle after winning four of their last five meetings, the Blues could face another tough test here. Having to settle for a 0-0 stalemate against Oldham last weekend, Keith Millen’s men are in the midst of a five-match winless run. Drawing a blank in four of those five outings, it’s also worth highlighting that the Cumbria-based outfit have won just one of their previous nine contests across all formats.

Tip: Northampton Town win & under five goals @ 23/20

14:30 Freiburg vs Greuther Fürth

Eventually managing to extend on their DFP Pokal adventure earlier in the week after an action-packed affair away at Osnabrück, Freiburg have continued to shock many across Germany so far this season. Making a string of improvements over the summer, Christian Streich’s men now have their sights set on trying to secure a European finish. Opening up this weekend’s fixtures sat as high as third in the table and cementing their spot as a surprise package, their long-standing boss has been quick to praise his side’s eye-catching start. Last seen on Bundesliga duties claiming an impressive 2-0 win away at Wolfsburg, the Reds will find the mood in their camp at a red-hot high. Snatching a point against Champions League outfit RB Leipzig earlier in the month, Freiburg are remarkably unbeaten in each of their first nine Bundesliga matchups since opening the 2021/22 campaign. In fact, Saturday’s hosts are the only top-flight side in Germany who are yet to taste a single defeat. With their stellar start highlighted by a 2-1 win against Borussia Dortmund at the end of August, Streich’s side will be looking to lay down another marker here. On the flip side, last seen getting hit with a thumping 4-1 defeat against RB Leipzig on the road, Greuther Fürth are in the midst of a Bundesliga nightmare. Sat rooted to the top of the table, this weekend’s guests have managed to put just a single point on the board. Likewise, losing each of their last seven top-flight contests on the spin, we’re backing a routine home performance.

Tip: Freiburg to score in both halves @ 6/5

15:00 Boreham Wood vs Southend United

Starting with Saturday’s hosts, while Boreham Wood would have been left hugely frustrated by that 2-1 loss against Chesterfield last weekend, the Whites made an immediate return to winning ways a few days ago. Claiming a deserved 1-0 victory away at King’s Lynn Town in midweek, the Hertfordshire-based outfit have really impressed so far this season. Despite having to settle for a bottom-half finish last year, Luke Garrard’s men are really battling it out at the top of the table. Sat third in the standings and just two points adrift of league leaders Grimsby, Boreham Wood have won four of their last five matchups across all formats. Also extending on their FA Cup adventure with a 1-0 win against Barnet, they also laid down a real marker with back-to-back 2-0 victories against Torquay and Dagenham & Redbridge earlier in the month. Likewise, it should also be noted that Garrard’s side have lost just one of their last seven National League contests, a run that stems back to September 18th. With a growing reputation for their success on home soil after claiming three consecutive wins at Meadow Park, a downbeat Southend squad should face another stern test here. Losing their Football League status last season, the Blues are in the midst of a nightmare both on and off the pitch. Battling it out in the drop zone, they were last seen getting hit with a 3-0 drumming away at Dagenham & Redbridge. Losing six of their last seven National League outings, we’re backing a home win this weekend.
