The latest Sporting Life Accumulator from our expert tipsters

Football accumulator tips: 9/1 Sporting Life Acca; Saturday, May 8

Our expert tipsters dig through the formbook to build a Sky Bet-enhanced BTTS accumulator for Saturday's Championship and League Two campaign conclusions.


Both teams to score in:

  • Bristol City v Brentford (12:30 BST)
  • Middlesbrough v Wycombe (12:30 BST)
  • Morecambe v Bradford
  • Oldham v Forest Green

Games kick off at 15:00 BST on Saturday unless stated.

It’s been a torrid second half of the Sky Bet Championship season for BRISTOL CITY but they have rediscovered their shooting boots in recent weeks. Five of their past six encounters have seen both teams find the net.

That bodes well for the visit of BRENTFORD, who have the third best BTTS record in the division. The Bees should make changes with one eye on the play-offs, as they can finish no higher nor lower than third, and that should lead to an open game at Ashton Gate.

If you want a team in form when it comes to goals at both ends, MIDDLESBROUGH are your men. BTTS has landed in six of their past seven games and goals have been particularly frequent at the Riverside with each team netting in seven of the past nine there.

They host a WYCOMBE side who need to win at least 13-0 to stay up. It’s not going to happen but the Chairboys deserve credit for the fight they have made of their survival scrap in their first season at second-tier level. Both teams have netted in four of their past five.

MORECAMBE go into the final day of the Sky Bet League Two season with the opportunity to achieve promotion to the third tier for the first time in their history. But they must beat Bradford to have a chance.

That need to attack bodes well for BTTS given Morecambe games average 2.78 goals anyway and they host a BRADFORD side whose ‘both teams to score’ percentage is ridiculously higher away (64%) than at home (35%). They have scored on 10 of their past 11 travels.

We wrote last week that perennial BTTS favourites OLDHAM hardly ever let us down – and they came good again, losing 4-1 at Mansfield. Across the season, their record stands at an amazing 69%, the highest in the Football League and a figure only League One Burton (67%) come close to.

We’re happy to back the Latics to be involved in a goal glut again, considering visitors FOREST GREEN must win to secure a play-off berth. The Gloucestershire side’s BTTS stats are 53%, more than good enough given who they are up against.
