Football accumulator tips for this weekend (11/12 May 2024)


MANCHESTER City get Matchweek 37 of the Premier League season underway at Craven Cottage on Saturday lunchtime. 

The Sky Blues are going for a fourth successive title and a sixth in the last seven seasons. A win will see them heap the pressure on Arsenal, who visit Old Trafford on Sunday.

The Man Utd vs Arsenal fixture is every United fan’s worst nightmare. Win, and they virtually hand the title to City. Lose, and it’s more doom and gloom for the Red Devils. 

Elsewhere, Aston Villa need three points to ensure Champions League football. That won’t be easy against Liverpool on Monday. 

While at the bottom, it now looks highly likely that Burnley and Luton will be joining Sheffield United back in the Championship next season. Only Nottingham Forest can now gatecrash that party. 

This weekend, we’ve picked out a Saturday four-fold that pays £113.08 from a £10 bet. Add our Sunday tip, and the five-fold pays £254.42.

The accumulator can be placed with any of our top football sites for Premier League betting.

🥅 Fulham vs Man City: Man City -1 on the handicap (4/6)

It’s hard to see Fulham getting anything other than a good hiding from Manchester City. 

Fulham are midtable with just one win in their last seven, the sort of side City will be relishing playing this weekend. 

As for Manchester City, they’ve won their last six in the Premier League. 

All six wins have been by a minimum of two goals, with one match won by three goals and three by four goals.

City are six behind Arsenal on goal difference. The chances are it won’t matter, but we still see Pep’s team going for goals at the Cottage.

🥅 Everton vs Sheffield Utd: Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals (1/1)

Everton has scored in seven of their last eight matches. 

Their upturn in form in recent weeks has seen them survive in the Premier League despite points deductions and financial woes.

Sheffield United brought up the century of goals conceded in last Saturday’s 3-1 loss to Nottingham Forest. The Blades have been woeful at the back.

Despite this, they have found the net in eight of their last ten. And in all the eight matches they scored, both teams to score and over 2.5 goals won.

🥅 Spurs vs Burnley: Spurs to win and both teams to score (11/10)

Part of me wouldn’t back Spurs to win the proverbial one-horse race on current form. 

The high-intensity style of play implemented by Ange Postecoglou has been great to watch. 

But there was always a feeling of inevitability that it would result in the team running out of legs as the season progressed. 

Spurs are on a losing skid of four. They have to win this match to keep their slim chances of Champions League football alive.

Burnley probably blew their chance of Premier League survival last Saturday when they lost at home to Newcastle. 

I expect to see the Clarets take the game to Spurs, but ultimately, it will play into the hands of the North Londoners. 

The Clarets have scored in eight of their last ten. Spurs can’t keep clean sheets. I expect both teams to score and Spurs to win.

Back both teams to score and Spurs to win at 11/10 with bet365

Add the following bet from Sunday’s match to make it a five-fold acca.

🥅 Nottingham Forest vs Chelsea: Chelsea to score over 1.5 goals (8/13)

Anybody watching the last match at the City Ground couldn’t have failed to have been impressed with Forest’s efforts against Manchester City in their 2-0 defeat.

Despite the loss, it proved the point that Forest is hard to beat at home.

The Reds’ subsequent 3-1 win over Sheffield United last Saturday went a long way to ensuring their Premier League survival. But they still may need points from somewhere should Luton get a win at West Ham earlier in the day.

On the flip side, there could be a party atmosphere when the game kicks off should Burnley and Luton lose. 

Chelsea has scored two or more in nine of their last ten matches. They also seem to have run into a bit of form, with three wins in their last five. 

Just don’t mention the Arsenal match.

🥅 Man Utd vs Arsenal: Rasmus Højlund to have over 1.5 shots (5/4)

Manchester United are 11/2 to beat Arsenal at Old Trafford. The Gunners are just 2/5 to beat the Red Devils.

The odds are saying United look there for the taking this Sunday.

There was a similar consensus a few weeks ago when Jurgen Klopp took his team to Manchester. And look what happened then. 

United don’t want to do City any favours. But if they do up their game after the Selhurst Park shambles, they may hand Pep’s team a significant boost as they bid to win a fourth successive title.

I would expect the Red Devils to be better this Sunday. But whether that will be enough to prevent Arsenal from winning is another thing. 

Picking a value bet in this match is difficult. But one that caught the eye was Player Shots for Rasmus Højlund. 

The Dane is 5/4 to have over 1.5 shots. Scott McTominay is 11/10 in the same market. The midfielder has shorter odds than the striker. Can you believe it?

Surely, in an improved United performance, Højlund can manage to muster up a minimum of two shots. 

After all, he is one of the three players who apparently isn’t for sale, so his confidence should be sky-high. 

And remember, the shots don’t even need to be on target. They only need to be heading in the general direction of the goal for the bet to win.
