We have 1 football accumulator tip today and its a Win – Draw – Win treble focused on the first week of the Premier League with a splash of The Championship for good measure. As we said last week it’s hard to judge the start of the season, so we’ve looked for potential value in outsiders.
Here’s our first tip of the season & let us know if you are on it via twitter @UK_Footytipster or in the comments below.
WIN – DRAW – WIN TREBLE
Crystal Palace are not in a good place right now. Zaha is said to be fuming at the board and management having not been allowed to leave this summer. They’ve lost their best defender in AWB and haven’t adequately replaced him, they’ve got options up top now, but no striker will put the fear in the Everton defence. The Toffees have strengthened significantly in summer but it remains to be seen how these additions will adapt to the Premier League. The quality added will strengthen the 1st XI and give more depth to the squad. Everton look in the better place and Palace are clear relegation candidates.
Last year was another positive season for Watford but ended with a very poor run of form. They have a good manager, good owners and a squad who are improving year on year. They aren’t good enough to challenge the top 6 yet as consistency is something they are lacking, but their cup run last year showed the potential. Another good transfer window will see them well placed going into this season. Brighton struggled last year and will do so again this year. They are looking to play a more attractive brand of football, but don’t have the talent or the goals to make it work. The defence kept them in the league last season and they will be more exposed this season. Home win by 2 or more is a great bet here.
QPR looked really good on the opening weekend, they are playing an attractive style of passing football and it’s refreshing to see QPR looking to move forward. The attacking possession based football must have the quality to deliver it and they are getting the best out of this squad. Defensively they will be vulnerable, especially against teams able to successfully press and Huddersfield should have the fitness from last years campaign. Unfortunately they’ve not solve their goal scoring issues from last season and the loss of Mooy is a huge blow. They lack quality through the team and this will be a very tough season for them. QPR should have the edge at home.
