Ladbrokes News Acca: Watford, Derby and Gillingham lead 66/1 five-fold

| 12.01.2018

The Ladbrokes News Team are back with their first accumulator of 2018.

With league action in full flow once more, we’re out to find the best selections for Saturday’s games.

We’re feeling confident, and have carefully perused the fixtures up and down the land.

Here’s who we’re going for this weekend…

Richard Marsh

Gillingham to beat Rochdale

An excellent run of results has hauled Gillingham out of relegation trouble and even given them a sniff of the play-offs.

They’ve lost only two of their last 14 matches in a spell which has seen them collect 11 points from the last 15 on offer.

So the Gills look excellent value at 9/5 to win at home to second-bottom Rochdale.

The Spotland side are winless in six and haven’t won an away game since April. They’ve also conceded 13 goals in their last five on the road.

Cian Carroll

Derby County to beat Birmingham City

This pick is based on a three-pronged logic.

After worries he would leave for Stoke City, Gary Rowett signed a new long-term deal at Pride Park. Rams’ players and fans alike will be buzzing they’ve kept their cracking young manager.

Rowett was incredibly sacked by Birmingham last season despite the Blues just outside the play-off places. He’ll want to get one over on his ex-employees at St. Andrews.

Derby are a far better side than Birmingham. 13/10 is value.

Dave Burin

Rotherham United to beat Oldham Athletic

The Latics are in freefall right now. Richie Wellens’ side have taken a single point from their last five games.

That’s a real contrast to the visiting Millers. They’ve won three away games on the spin, and thrashed Oldham 5-1 in Yorkshire back in September.

A Rotherham victory looks good at 7/5.

Dan Anwar

Watford to beat Southampton

Watford could pile further pressure on Southampton boss Mauricio Pellegrino with a 7/5 home win.

The Saints haven’t won a league game on the road since September. They’re unlikely to end that miserable streak at Vicarage Road, which means they could end the weekend in the drop zone.

Nick Murphy

Port Vale to beat Yeovil Town

Yeovil have lost nine out of their 13 away league games so far this season.

Port Vale, by contrast, have won their last three at Vale Park, including successes against high-flying pair Luton Town and Coventry City.

With that in mind, the 8/11 on the Valiants to win this weekend looks more than generous.

So there we go. This weekend’s five-fold is available at 66/1!

Richard loves his sport, especially if it involves the sound of tyres screaming around a race track. He's not fussy though and his '90s Premier League nostalgia and knowledge of team nicknames is tough to match.
