Watford vs. Everton – Gerard Deulofeu to score anytime
Proper curse of the past player, this. Evertonians would have been baffled to see a winger who, during his time at Goodison Park, struggled for consistency and fitness, end up plying his trade at first AC Milan, and then alongside Lionel Messi at Barcelona. Although, they’re probably less surprised to see him back at a mid-table Premiership club in Watford, and they’ll probably be even less surprised to see him score a goal against his former club when the Blues meet the Hornets in Saturday’s late kick off. He’s currently priced at 11/4 to get one over on his former employers and heap the misery on Big Sam’s big shoulders.
Fulham vs. Wolves – Both Teams to Score and Over 2.5 Goals
This has probably been #ShitTips favourite market so far. It has been pretty reliable too, and we’re using it again when the Championship’s runaway leaders make the trip to Craven Cottage on Saturday evening. Fulham could make a strong case for being the side who play the best football in the league, whereas Wolves would be confident that they boast perhaps the best squad ever seen in the second-tier, so a goalfest could be on the cards as these two clash, so we’re going back to basics and going for Both Teams to Score and Over 2.5 Goals in this one, currently priced at a pretty decent looking 6/5.
Peterborough United vs. AFC Wimbledon – Joe Pigott to score last
Shudder. This is the first time that the shite from up the A1 have featured in an edition of #ShitTips, so we’ve got to be optimistic, haven’t we? Of course we have. Who remembers Joe Pigott, then? Yeah, that’s the one. The guy who looked like he couldn’t hit a cow’s arse with a banjo while he was on the books at The Abbey. Surely, then, it will finally be time for the former-Charlton man to prove he was worth the money that the Dons shelled out on him during January, and also put himself forever in U’s fans good books. We’ll be backing Pigott to have the last say at London Road and score the last goal, in what will hopefully be a triumphant win for Wimbledon, and make a lot of U’s fans very happy, and very rich. He’s currently priced at 15/2 to do it, so there is definitely cash to be won. Hopefully, anyway. This is #ShitTips, after all.
Accrington Stanley vs. Cambridge United – Both Teams to Score
In all honesty, we probably should’ve done something along the lines of over 70.5 bobble hats in the away end as United make the journey to face everybody’s favourite underdog, Accrington Stanley, but the odds would be so bad it wouldn’t be worth it. So, we’ll do something a little bit more sensible, and go for a plain old Both Teams to Score. United have found their shooting boots since Shaun Derry left the club (who would have seen that coming), and we fancy that to continue, and Accrington have got the League Two top scorer in Billy Kee, so they’ll be a threat that we’ll do really well to keep out, and therefore BTTS looks like a decent prediction, and its currently priced at 8/11, so a decent shout to have as part of an accumulator.
Let’s have a recap then. We’re going for:
Watford vs. Everton – Gerard Deulofeu to score anytime – 11/4
Fulham vs. Wolves – Both Teams to Score and Over 2.5 Goals – 6/5 NAP
Peterborough United vs. AFC Wimbledon – Joe Pigott to score last – 15/2
Accrington Stanley vs. Cambridge United – Both Teams to Score – 8/11
If you’re feeling brave and fancy backing all our selections as a fourfold, and you’d have to be really brave, you can get a whopping 120/1. A couple of pound notes on that and you’ve bought next year’s season ticket. Go on, have a go.
