Football: 11/1 Championship Acca - Saturday, January 22


We go to the Championship for an 11/1 acca on Saturday afternoon, picking three results across the games that start at 3pm.

Two victories and a draw is what we like, here are the picks for the day.

  • Fulham to beat Stoke
  • Birmingham and Barnsley to draw
  • Sheffield United to beat Luton

 

Fulham to Beat Stoke

Stoke may have got back to winning ways over the weekend, but prior to that they had certainly dipped in form. Fulham on the other hand, are simply playing the best they have played all season.

In their last three games, they’ve picked up nine points and scored 19 goals, an incredible run for a team that seems to be fancied more for promotion every single week.

Stoke are no mugs, but we have to side with Fulham here.

Birmingham and Barnsley to Draw

Two teams towards the bottom of the table, simply not good enough to win games at the moment. With that in mind, we really fancy the draw here. Birmingham have drawn two of their last five, Barnsley have drawn three of their last five and while both will want a win here, they may have to settle for a draw.

With Barnsley away from home, they are most likely to play for a draw, and in recent weeks, they have shown very small improvements to defend a little better and pick up the odd point.

We are hoping they do the same in this one and take a point back home to South Yorkshire with them.

Sheffield United to Beat Luton

Our acca rounds off with Sheffield United to beat Luton. The Blades threw away a 2-0 lead against 10-man Preston during midweek,  game they really should have won.

United have played a lot of away games recently, and will be glad to get back home. They were very impressive in their last home game, beating Bristol City 2-0 and we are hoping for a return to that kind of form.

Do that, and we are confident that The Blades can get back to wining ways after disappointment midweek.
