October 1st: Saturday’s Football Accumulator – 7/1

With the Premier League and Europe’s elite making their return to action this weekend, we have a stacked schedule from across the continent. So, for those of you who are looking to place a Saturday acca, we have found a handful of helpful tips that are worth keeping an eye out for.

Saturday October 1st

BST 15:00 Fulham vs Newcastle

While many might have tipped Fulham to be in a real scrap to avoid an immediate Championship return this season, Saturday’s hosts have enjoyed a stellar Premier League flurry since opening the 2022/23 campaign. Mounting a remarkable comeback away at Nottingham Forest on September 16th when heading into the international break, Marco Silva’s men should find the mood in their camp at a red-hot high. Last seen eventually leaving the City Ground with an action-packed 3-2 victory, the one-time Watford boss has seen his side gain plenty of plaudits. Marking their return to action this weekend sat sixth in the standings, Fulham have also impressed with their rugged displays on home soil. Including an eye-catching 2-1 victory at home against Brighton last month, the Cottagers have taken seven points from their first three Premier League showdowns in west London. With attacking talisman Aleksandar Mitrović continuing on a real free-scoring run, Silva’s side could be smelling a chance here. On the flip side, while Newcastle might have broken the bank this summer, they have struggled to find top gear with much stability. Heading into the international break with a sluggish 1-1 draw at home against Bournemouth, Eddie Howe’s men have now failed to win any of their last six Premier League contests. Likewise, failing to clinch a top-flight victory away from St. James’ Park so far this season, a home draw no bet can be found at appealing odds here.

Tip: Fulham draw no bet @ 13/10

15:00 Blackpool vs Norwich

While Norwich might have opened the 2022/23 campaign in the midst of a worrying run of form, Dean Smith’s men have come roaring back in some style. Despite being last seen heading into the international break with a 1-1 draw at home against West Brom, the ex-Aston Villa boss finds his side sat in pole position to book an immediate Premier League return this season. Unbeaten on Championship duties since back on August 13th, Saturday’s guests will be looking to lay down another marker here. Gaining a reputation for their free-scoring displays in the final third, Norwich have also collected back-to-back victories away from Carrow Road. With USA international Josh Sargent already racking up six Championship strikes, Smith’s squad should be looking to cash in on a Blackpool side who mark their return to action battling it out at the foot of the second-tier table. Last seen heading into the fortnight break with a 2-1 loss away at Millwall, Saturday’s hosts have lost three of their last four outings and will know that they face a stern test this weekend. Likewise, it should also be highlighted, the Oranges have failed to win any of their last four matchups on home soil across all formats. With that run highlighted by a shock EFL Cup defeat against League Two outfit Barrow last month, we’re backing an away victory here.

Tip: Norwich win @ 19/20

17:30 West Ham vs Wolves

While West Ham might have gained a host of plaudits over the past 18 months, the Hammers have drastically failed to keep up that same momentum this time around. Heading into the international break with a toothless 1-0 loss away at Everton, David Moyes’ men have picked up just a single Premier League victory from their opening seven attempts. Marking their return to action this weekend sat in the drop zone, Saturday’s hosts have also gained somewhat of a reputation for their struggles in the final third. In fact, along with drawing a blank at Goodison Park last time out, the former Manchester United boss has seen his side muster just a trio of domestic strikes so far this season. With it looking like there is some growing pressure on Moyes’ shoulders, West Ham fans will be calling on a much-needed boost in east London. Likewise, while the Hammers might be in the midst of a downbeat run, Wolves have also struggled to find much stability since opening the 2022/23 campaign. Heading into the fortnight break with a routine 3-0 defeat at home against defending champions Manchester City, Saturday’s guests have now picked up just a single Premier League win since the start of April. Two sides who have failed to find a clinical edge over recent weeks, we’re backing what could be a cagey affair here.
