C’ship Accumulator: Both teams to score fivefold pays 11/1
Ahead of this round of Championship fixtures, we’ve picked out five matches where fans can expect to see both teams find the back of the net.
This market typically fails to offer big prices, yet with the unpredictable nature of England’s second tier, goal-filled games are the norm and our fivefold, which pays out at 11/1, contains the sides most likely to get the job done.
Peterborough & Huddersfield – 4/7
Four of Huddersfield’s last six games have seen both keepers pick the ball out of their net at least once and, in James Vaughan and Jermaine Beckford, they have one of the most potent strike partnerships in the division.
Darren Ferguson’s side were a staple on the both teams to score coupon last season, but haven’t been as reliable this time around. Only one of their last five games have swung that way, however, their route-one style is something that Huddersfield could be susceptible to.
Bristol City & Burnley – 1/2
As this short price will suggest, goals are a shoo-in at Ashton Gate. Every one of Bristol City’s home ties has resulted in both sides finding the back of the net, yielding an all-competitions total of 27 for the Robins faithful to savour or despair.
Burnley’s attack is spearheaded by Charlie Austin – the division’s top scorer – and, prior to the last time they took to the field to face Blackpool, they had been on a run of nine successive games where neither team has kept a clean sheet.
Middlesbrough & Hull – 4/6
The game at the Riverside presents the best price of the fivefold. This is surprising given that Boro have conceded in all but one of their home matches to date and are yet to fail to beat the opposition’s keeper themselves.
The Tigers have notched goals in three successive Championship road trips and have only kept two struggling sides at bay. All their clashes with fellow promotion hopefuls have seen them ship goals – six from three games in total.
Leicester & Brighton – 8/11
The Seagulls’ wheels have come off of late after five straight wins pushed them into the promotion reckoning, but are now four without a win. However, they created enough chances to have got a draw out of the Boro game and definitely have a goal in their locker, even against the league leaders.
Leicester, on the other hand, are smoking with five wins and a draw from six and it’s tough to picture them failing to put the ball past Tomasz Kuszczak at least once. They’ve scored in each of their 13 games this season and registered 12 in front of their home support.
Millwall & Birmingham – 4/6
The final selection of this accumulator takes place at the Den, where the home side have played out nine games from their last 10 where both teams have found the net.
Lee Clark has endured a torrid time at the helm of Birmingham and has seen 20 goals converted in six games on his travels. Four of these games have seen both teams find the back of the net.
