April 6th: Saturday’s English Accumulator – 6/1

As the Premier League title scrap appears to be going right down to the wire, we certainly have a stacked Saturday schedule on the cards.

Likewise, with the trio of Leicester, Ipswich and Leeds all battling it out in the automatic promotion chase, we could have a season-defining fixture list this weekend.

For those of you looking to stick on a Saturday acca, we had found a trio of betting markets that could offer a great return for your flutter.

Saturday, April 6th

BST 15:00 Wolves vs West Ham

Although Wolves might have continued to receive a string of plaudits since appointing Gary O’Neil last summer, Saturday’s hosts still have their sights set on mounting a famous late European charge. However, despite winning just one of their previous five appearances across all competitions, the former Bournemouth boss should be smelling the chance to make a real statement here. While Wolves might have suffered major FA Cup heartbreak last month as they fell to a 3-2 loss at the hands of Championship outfit Coventry, O’Neil’s men have won all of their previous three meetings against Premier League opposition at Molineux. Likewise, it should also be highlighted, Wolves have lost just a trio of their last 15 straight appearances in front of their own supporters. Although West Ham might have secured a Europa League quarter-final ticket last month, the Hammers have drastically struggled with their domestic stability since opening the New Year. Marking their return from March’s international break with an action-packed 4-3 loss away at Newcastle, Saturday’s guests have won just a pair of their previous 12 Premier League showdowns. Likewise, it should also be noted that David Moyes’ men suffered a 1-0 loss when they travelled to Molineux last season. Likewise, recording just a single top-flight victory away from the London Stadium in 2024, Moyes’ side should face a tough challenge this weekend.

Tip: Wolves draw no bet @ 4/5

15:00 Leicester vs Birmingham

Although Leicester might have continued to show some extended issues over the past couple of months, the Foxes certainly claimed a crucial response here. Storming their way to a 3-1 romp against Norwich, Saturday’s hosts must use that performance as a platform to build on. Recording just a pair of second-tier victories since back on February 13th, Enzo Maresca’s side know the importance of securing an immediate Premier League return in 2024. Looking to skyrocket their way back to the top of the table, attacking talisman Jamie Vardy will certainly have a leading role to play. Along with bagging three goals in as many Championship appearances, the 37-year-old has recorded nine goals since opening the New Year. While Birmingham might have claimed a crucial boost earlier in the week as they secured a 1-0 victory at home against Preston, the Blues have come under a huge amount of scrutiny this season. Dealing with a hugely frustrated fanbase at St. Andrew’s, Saturday’s guests are at the heart of a Championship relegation scrap. Holding just a two-point buffer from slipping into the drop zone, Tony Mowbray’s men have also collected just a single point from their last seven showdowns on the road. Likewise, Birmingham have shipped 13 goals in those seven consecutive contests away from St. Andrew’s.

Tip: Jamie Vardy to score anytime @ 11/10

15:00 Middlesbrough vs Swansea

While Middlesbrough might have a real battle on their hands in this season’s play-off chase, Michael Carrick’s men are enjoying a recent flurry. Facing what is billed as another must-win showdown on Saturday afternoon, Saturday’s guests have turned a crucial corner. Last seen earlier in the week collecting a routine 2-0 victory against Sheffield Wednesday, the former Manchester United coach finds his squad in the midst of a six-match unbeaten run. Opening Mach with a 3-1 romp against fellow play-off contenders Norwich, Boro will be excited by their recent improvements at the back. Despite heading into the fortnight interval with a 0-0 stalemate at home against Blackburn, Carrick’s side have conceded just a single goal in any of their last five Championship appearances. Although Swansea might have entered March’s international break with a 2-0 victory against bitter local rivals Cardiff, Saturday’s guests have failed to find any kind of stability this season. Last seen earlier in the week suffering a worrying 1-0 loss against relegation scrappers QPR, Luke Williams’ men have recorded just a single victory from any of their previous five Championship showdowns. It should also be highlighted, Swansea have lost all of their last three trips to the Riverside by an aggregate score of 5-2. Given the recent gulf in class between Saturday’s opponents we are backing a home victory this weekend.

Tip: Middlesbrough win @ 19/20
