No Acca – 13/10/18

No joy again last week with the acca bet, with 3 of the 4 home teams losing.  Lincoln’s 1-0 win over Crewe was the only successful bet.

Betting bank now stands at -£40.00

With the International break this weekend, there’s not enough qualifying matches for the bet, so no acca this week.

4 Homes Acca – 06/10/18

The less said the better about  the acca on Tuesday Night with 2 draws and 2 away wins, the bet never looked like being landed.

Brentford could only manage 1-1 against Birmingham, despite the away side being down to 10 men from the 66th minute. Burton took the lead against Southend, but were unable to hold on to it and lost 2-1.

Newport were 2 down to Macclesfield within 11 minutes.  They battled back to draw 3-3 with a 97th minute equalizer, but a case of too little too late. Port Vale completed the poor night for the bet, losing 2-0 to the MK Dons.

If the bet’s not going to win, I prefer it when all the home teams fail, rather than just 1 letting it down.

4 Homes Acca – 29/09/18

4 Home wins last weekend, but unfortunately they were split between the 2 acca bets.

Acca 1 saw the leaders of the Championship and League One, both drop points at home to teams near the foot of the table. Leeds suffered their first defeat of the season, losing 2-1 to Birmingham, while high flying Portsmouth could only manage a draw against newly promoted Wycombe.

WBA were the only team to win for Acca 1, seeing off Millwall  2-0, while the match between Barnsley and Burton was called off after a matchday volunteer had a cardiac arrest on the pitch.

Acca 2 fared better, with 3 of the home teams obliging. Sheff Utd beat Preston 3-2, Doncaster beat Bradford 2-1 and Charlton beat Plymouth by a similar scoreline. It was only Blackpool who let the bet down, as they failed to score in a draw with Luton.

After the abundance of qualifying matches last week, there was only 1 this week. It can be a bit like that at the start of the season, when there haven’t been that many matches played.

Therefore No Acca bet this week. With a full set of mid-week league fixtures next week, there might be a bet then.

4 Homes Acca – 22/09/18

This weekend sees the first 4 homes acca bets of the season. This will be the 5th Season I’ve personally been backing the selections, in what started out as a fun bet to provide a bit of added interest in the Saturday afternoon football bets, but has made a profit in each of the 4 seasons I’ve been placing the bet.

Last season I made a profit of £92.23 having placed a £10 bet on each acca, with all selections and results recorded on the blog.

I’d call it more of a method behind the game selection, rather than a hard and fast system, as I have to adapt things some weeks to either whittle down or broaden the rules to end up with 4 selections.

Some weeks there are an abundance of selections, as is the case this weekend, where there’s 8 qualifying matches.

This season I’ve decided that if there are 8 or more games, I’ll put up 2 separate acca bets.

Selections for 22nd September 2018

Acca 1
English Championship – Leeds to beat Birmingham
English Championship – WBA to beat Millwall
English League One- Portsmouth to beat Wycombe
English League One- Barnsley to beat Burton

£10 bet returns £85.67 with Betvictor.

English League One – Charlton to beat Plymouth
English League One – Blackpool to beat Luton

4 Homes Acca – 05/05/18

Last weekend’s acca never looked likely to be landed, with just 1 of the 4 matches going to the home side.

QPR beat Birmingham, but that was as good as it got. Burnley and Wigan only managed draws, while Newcastle lost at home to WBA.

The running total for the season is now  +£92.23.

This will be the last 4 homes acca of the season.

Selections for 5th May 2018

English League One – Rotherham to beat Blackpool – 5:30 pm kickoff
English League One – Shrewsbury to beat MK Dons – 5:30 pm kickoff
English League One– Southend to beat Bristol Rovers – 5:30 pm kickoff
English League Two – Coventry to beat Morecambe – 3:00 pm kickoff

With the League Two matches kicking off at 3:00 pm and League One games not until 5:30 pm, I hope the bet is still alive by the time it gets to the later games.

With Coventry only needing a point to guarantee a playoff place and Morecambe needing a point to secure their place in the division, a draw looks a likely outcome, but hopefully Coventry can continue the form that saw them put 6 past Cheltenham last weekend and not just settle for a draw.

Winning Acca – 21/4/18

Saturday saw the acca bet get landed for the 4th time this season. The return of £85.14 to £10 bet means I’m now guaranteed a profit from the bet for the 4th season in a row.

Southend and Notts Co made light work of things, with 4-0 and 4-1 wins respectively. Things weren’t so plain sailing in the 2 Championship games. Brentford took the lead early on, but were pegged back by QPR on the stroke of half-time. However they regained the lead in the 69th minute to keep the acca alive going into the evening kick-off.

The 7:45 kick-off followed a similar pattern with Cardiff taking the lead in the 35th minute. Forest equalized in the 50th minute, but Cardiff regained the lead in the 75th minute to land the acca bet.

The running total for the season now stands at +£102.23.

4 Homes Acca – 21/04/18

There was 2 wins from the 4 matches last weekend, with Middlesbro beating Bristol City 2-1 and Luton beating Crewe 3-1.

However it all went wrong in the 43 minute in the other 2 games.During that minute Everton and Forest Green both scored away goals to go 1-0 up in their respective matches. Swansea managed to pull the goal back against Everton, but Cheltenham couldn’t find their way through the Forest to score.

The running total for the season is now  +£27.09.

Selections for 21st April 2018

Another fairly short priced acca this week, with qualifying matches again few and far between.

English Championship  – Brentford to beat QPR
English Championship – Cardiff to beat Nottm For (7:45 kickoff)
English League One – Southend to beat MK Dons

4 Homes Acca – 14/04/18

Disappointing last weekend in the game that let the acca down, was the one from Scotland.

Derby beat Bolton 3-0, Millwall beat Bristol City 2-0 and Blackburn beat Southend 1-0, but up in Scotland Alloa lost 1-0 to Stranraer. I’m now kicking myself for including that match in the bet.

The running total for the season is now  +£37.09.
