bettingexpert News FA Cup Accumulator Tips – January 8th-9th

Leicester vs Watford Over 2.75 Goals 2.05
West Brom vs Brighton West Brom +0.25 (AH) 2.01
Swansea vs Southampton Over 2.5 Goals 2.06
West Ham vs Leeds Over 2.5 Goals 1.76
Arsenal vs Nottingham Forest Arsenal to Win 1.55
Man United vs Aston Villa Aston Villa +1 (AH) 1.625

Odds correct from bet365 as at 13:30 January 7th 2022. Odds may now differ.

Selection 1: Leicester vs Watford – Over 2.75 Goals at 2.02

Leicester welcome Watford to the King Power and I expect goals. We’ll see plenty of changes from both sides as these two injury-hit teams meet. Both clubs will be without a host of first-team defenders but both can still call upon quality attacking talent. That means goals. This bet is aided by the fact that Leicester rarely keep clean sheets and Watford have one of the leakiest defences in England. This is a solid bet at good odds.

Selection 2: West Brom vs Brighton – West Brom +0.25 (AH) at 2.01

I’m backing the upset in this one. I don’t think there’s much between these two sides and I think home advantage will secure a result for the Baggies. West Brom haven’t lost all season at the Hawthorns. They face a Brighton side that will be focused more on the Premier League than the cup competitions considering their upcoming fixtures.

Selection 3: Swansea vs Southampton – Over 2.5 Goals at 2.03

I’m expecting goals in this one. I considered backing the hosts plus a goal in the Asian lines but I’ve gone for over on goals. Southampton have had over 2.5 goals in each of their last five away games at an average of 3.80 per match. Swansea have had over 2.5 goals in five of their last six home games. I think this is destined to be a high-scoring match.

Selection 4: West Ham vs Leeds – Over 2.5 Goals at 1.80

I think goals are the likeliest outcome here. I’m actually a little surprised the goal line isn’t higher for this one. Both teams have scored in 70% of West Ham’s Premier League games this season. That’s the highest in the league. Leeds are joint-second in that table with 68% and have conceded 17 in their last 5.

Selection 5: Arsenal vs Nottingham Forest – Arsenal to Win at 1.62

I’m backing Arsenal to get the result here. Mikel Arteta’s men are on a great run of form with five wins in six. They’ve scored 15 in their last four matches in all competitions and look great value to get the win. These odds have dropped in the last few days. The Gunners were out at around 1.80 at the start of the week but punters appear to have caught on. Still, I like the bet and I expect them to get the win.

Selection 6: Manchester United vs Aston Villa – Villa +1 (AH) at 1.72

I can see Aston Villa getting a result at Old Trafford here. Manchester United have no shortage of problems right now. They’re struggling for goals, their attack is disheveled and their defence is leaking. They look especially weak in wide areas, something that Aston Villa thrive in. I can see them getting a result at Old Trafford on Monday night and the Asian handicap of +1 goal is just too good to refuse.

What is a Football Acca?

A  football acca is an accumulator bet, a type of bet that consists of several selections across different matches that are combined together into one single bet. An acca usually. consists of at least four selections but many more can be included. There will be odds for the single bet as a whole which is calculated by multiplying the odds of all of the selections. A  football acca is one of the most popular ways to bet. This is the case because they can create potentially massive odds for a small stake. Many punters choose to create FA Cup accas which is what we have created here.If one of these selections loses then the football acca will lose. This type of bet needs every selection to win in order to succeed.
